Skin care is a highly innovative field depending strongly on the training and skills of the skin therapists, transforming them into experts. Up to now, post graduation training is mostly held in congress halls and hotel facilities where only a theoretical training is possible. Live demonstration of new techniques is rare and mostly held in a remote clinical setting, restricted to the operational staff only. The congress hall and the clinic often have a visual and audio connection through Wi-Fi, resulting in a slow and troublesome connection. However, the distance between theory and practice remains.
Our Training Center for Skin Experts offers the unique combination of a modern educational center and the facilities of a full-scale medical aesthetic clinic in one location. Not only is the distance abolished, hands on training in order to master a skill, becomes reality. The infrastructure is designed in such a manner that the newly acquired knowledge is immediately converted in the practice, becoming a newly mastered skill.
This new venture started out of the need for the practical education of our staff members and in search of a suitable infrastructure to hold workshops for colleagues
in the field. As Dr. I. Karavani and his staff were in need of expansion, the clinic moved to new premises at the iconic BP tower in Antwerp. While designing the interior lay out of the facility with the architects, the bold idea popped up to allocate a substantial part of the clinic to educational purposes. Soon leading companies embraced the opportunity and the first meetings were held even before the completion of the works. The Training Center for Skin Experts (TCSE) is now looking forward to a bright future, providing the link between knowledge and practice in our field.
