This course is designed for people who have no previous experience or training in giving Botulinum toxins and dermal fillers.
After the course, you should be confident in practicing aesthetic medicine due to the excellent supervision and the large number of injections you will perform during the course. In this course, you will learn eight basic aesthetic procedures.
There will be a manual given in advance which has all the necessary material needed and on the day of the course, there will be a theory power point presentation followed by a practical session on live models. The manual is written by experts in each field and we employed a professional editor and proofreader to review the manual to make the language simple and easy.
The manual has various sections such as skin anatomy and physiology, the mechanism of ageing, face assessment, consultation techniques including training on how to give post treatment advise. It will also cover the legal aspects of aesthetics in the UK and an extensive detailed chapter on starting a business in aesthetics, how to find a clients and expand.
It will include sections for Botulinum toxin details, such as history, mechanism of action, preparation and storage, injection techniques of five Botox treatments (Frown, forehead, crows feet, brow lift and bunny nose), and complications associated with Botulinum toxins.
Two of the Botox procedures in this course (Brow lift and bunny nose) are taught on the Advanced Course normally but we believe with proper training you can do them competently.
The Filler section will include the same; history, type of fillers, mechanism of action, storage, injection techniques of, complications and post treatment advice. The filler procedures taught in this course are three in total which are: lips, marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
The powerpoint presentation will include a summary of the above with extensive photos and videos of the above with slides on the face assessment and all the injections techniques of the techniques included.
The last part of the powerpoint presentation will include business advice, how to start up a business, how to find clients, how to expand and promote yourself and what to do next. We will also have invited guest speakers who will explain how they started in the industry and became very successful injectors.
