Paramedical advanced areola course (apply now)
The two demonstrations show how Andrew Stassi teaches his students to reproduce the areola and nipple on simulated skins in order that they understand the shadows and highlight points to reproduce a 3D effect on real skin.
The skins show multiple techniques demonstrated by using various needle groupings to allow for different effects and for skin resistance. Needles used in these exercises are 3point liner, 5point shader and 9magnum. The samples are not complete so the student will recognise which needle has been used for each areola and nipple. On real skin, more pigment will be applied to complete the desired effect.
Andrew Stassi has developed his own techniques for areola restoration resulting in a very lifelike 3D appearance. His work has been praised by many in the industry internationally, and his work is often used in publications to create awareness. The convincing ‘3D look’ is created with the use of several pigment tones and shading techniques.
This is more of an artistic skill and our paramedical classes will teach you how to get the basic foundation to create such outstanding results. Competent and skilled technicians are very sought after in the paramedical field, as well as in the beauty industry. A fully qualified technician who has reached a high level of experience and confidence may consider a training course in advanced micropigmentation, otherwise known as ‘Master Class’.
This advanced level of training is tailored to your requirements and will take you to an advanced level in your chosen field allowing greater diversity and the possibility of working with the NHS, where highly skilled technicians are especially in demand to work with leading plastic surgeons and oncologists to correct scarring after surgery. There is a lot of job satisfaction in restoring a person’s confidence by carrying out corrective micropigmentation such as:

• scar camouflage (read more)
• hairline restoration (read more)
• harelip correction (read more)
• vitiligo camouflage (read more)
• scar relaxation (read more)
• skin rejuvenation (MCA) (read more) • male pattern baldness. (read more) The advanced courses are tailored to your requirements.
The areola course is made up one one practical drawing day where you will learn how to create the areola and nipple in 3D in simulated skins. You will be shown how to do this using various needle groupings and implantation techniques. On the second day there will be more practical work on the skins flowed by live model in the afternoon.
You will be asked to provide your own models.
