The ARA UK is a charity created by Professor Tony Chu, to educate aesthetic practitioners and dermatologists about acne and rosacea in terms of the development, complications and how to effectively treat the many different cases. Professor Tony Chu teaches cutting-edge techniques for treating acne and rosacea. By utilising these techniques, you’re more able to accurately assess and treat each patient.

By enrolling in the ARA UK, and becoming accredited, your business will also be listed as an “Accredited Treatment Centre” on the ARA UK website, providing a steady stream of customers when they look for their nearest accredited clinic. You will also receive an accreditation pack. This involves a sticker for your window to show you are an accredited treatment centre, a certificate, social media material, website badge etc. Accredited Centres also get fast diagnosis support from Professor Tony Chu.

What does the course cover? Everything on Acne and Rosacea

  • Different types

We have ‘as live’ webinars where we can schedule them for whenever you can do them. There are 3 webinars which are an hour long each, 2 on acne and acne scarring and 1 on rosacea. After completing the webinars you then complete 2 exams 1 on rosacea and 1 on acne, these are multiple-choice. These are then marked by Prof. Chu and then sent back to you, if you pass you then become an accredited treatment centre. This course is also CPD accredited (60 points).

The course cost is £300 for the three webinars and the money is payable to the charity account by bank transfer. Once this I said we can get you set up on the webinars and send your training booklets out to you.
