PRACTICAL laser/IPL workshop for beginners (Gold Coast)
PLACES STRICTLY LIMITED!
This practical workshop is the perfect excuse to spend time at Mermaid Beach on the beautiful Gold Coast! It is in the relaxed learning environment at Complexions Skincare Clinic, a fully accredited cosmetic medicine clinic.
"I was recommended the Bravura Education laser courses by known and revered experts in the field of cosmetic medicine, and they were not wrong in connecting me with Elissa and her colleagues. I commenced these programs to help direct and develop my clinical wound management practice, and following my completion of Bravura's online programs and attending the Mermaid Beach practical workshops I feel I have gained the necessary ground work to confidently commence a career in laser therapeutics and integrate these skills, frameworks and clinical guidance into my current practice. Both Elissa and Gordon demonstrated superior clinical, and industry knowledge, supporting me extensively during the development of my clinical skills throughout the practical workshop. I look forward to seeing where this rabbit hole will take me. Many thanks to Elissa, Gordon and the Bravura team for their ongoing support." Joel Mason, CRNI, CNC Paediatric Vascular Access and Wound Management.
