Pastiche Training is an internationally recognised provider of quality training programs and courseware designed specifically for the development of individuals who work within the professional, non-surgical skin care sector.
We provide a hub for competency-based educational journeys where learners can master specific knowledge and skills about advanced skin care topics at their own pace.
Pastiche have been providing advanced education since 1996, when we first introduced the progressive training course “Advanced Skin Analysis” in a classroom format. Over the years we have been proud to offer over 40 different courses worldwide dealing with the advanced topics of skin Anatomy, Histology, Morphology and Physiology, Cosmetic Chemistry and a variety of intervention and treatment approaches.
Over that time, our Advanced Skin Analysis course developed in to what is now known as The Pastiche Method®, a progressive and effective technique to accurately determine skin types and skin conditions. Individuals using the method are referred to as Pastiche Skin Diagnosticians.
The method focuses on the cause of skin conditions to appropriately target interventions as opposed to treating the symptoms only and is considered essential knowledge for all qualified Beauty Therapists, Licensed Aestheticians and Medical Aesthetics Practitioners serious about a professional career in skin treatment therapy.
The content of the course has also been published as a series of books, with the iconic “Advanced Skin analysis” translated into 5 languages.
