FAQ

Our courses are currently open to medical professionals only – doctors, dentists and nurses.
Our skin treatment courses are open to beauty therapists. These courses include microdermabrasion, microneedling and skin peels. We are also able to train Level 4 beauty therapists who have been trained in phlebotomy in PRP. The PRP course for beauty therapists varies from the medical course in that we do not cover injecting the PRP, only application via skin needling/dermal roller. The price for this is £595 and we allow a maximum of 2 delegates on the course.

While it is possible for beauty therapists to offer certain injectable aesthetic treatments (ie dermal fillers, botox), we do not currently offer training to anyone who doesn’t come from a medical background. This is for a number of reasons. Firstly, most of the main insurers will not insure beauty therapists to offer these treatments. Our main priority is safety for both our delegates themselves and the patients they treat and one of the main aspects of ensuring safety when carrying out cosmetic procedures is not just knowing how to perform the procedures itself, but knowing how to manage any complications which may arise following the procedure.
Yes, we will need to see copies of your registration details, showing which professional body you are registered with (eg NMC, GMC). We will also need to see your photo ID (passport, driver’s licence etc) in order to prove your identity on the day. Failure to provide either of these may result in you not being allowed to take part in the course.
Practical experience is a vital part of the training course and we expect every delegate to practice on at least one model on the day. All delegates will be required to complete both the theoretical and practical sessions in order to pass the course.
Delegates will, on occasion, be given the choice of whether they wish to bring their own model with them, or to use a model supplied by us. We do recommend that if you choose to supply your own model, they are someone who would see significant improvement from the treatment they are having as this will be far more beneficial for you when carrying out the procedure on them. Models should be checked for contra-indications.
Should a delegate decide to bring their own model, they are responsible for the models’ attendance on the day. If a model fails to turn up to the practical session and a suitable replacement model can not be found at short notice, this may result in the delegate being unable to complete the course.

All models will be properly consulted prior to any treatments, to ensure that they are safe and suitable to undergo the procedure.
All delegates will be assessed on both the theoretical and practical aspects of the course. If we do not feel that you have demonstrated sufficient skill and knowledge, we will not issue you with a pass. This is because, as your training provider, we are responsible for your success as a practitioner, the safety of the patients you treat and our own reputation. Any delegates who do not pass will be invited back to our next training session to give them another opportunity to complete the course.
All delegates who pass the course will receive a certificate which will serve as proof of completion of training. As our courses are recognised by Hiscox insurance, this certificate will allow you to obtain the required indemnity insurance to practice the procedures we have trained you in.
Once you have completed one of our training courses, our team will be more than happy to offer you advice should you have any questions; we can be contacted by phone or email. If required, we can also arrange a follow up with one of our trainers for further guidance.
As you are probably aware, botox is a POM, meaning that all patients must be prescribed this treatment by a qualified prescriber. If you do not hold the V300 qualification yourself, it may be possible to arrange for your patients to have a face to face consultation with a prescriber first and, where possible, we will try to put you in touch with someone in your area who can offer this service. If you were to choose to do this, it would be your responsibility to arrange all consultations with the prescriber.
