Yvonne Senior is a non-surgical aesthetic nurse with clinics in both Yorkshire and the North West and over 18 years of practise within the field of medical cosmetics. Like many aesthetic nurses, her career stems from an NHS background where she worked through the ranks from staff nurse to senior management and eventually secured a place on the prestigious King’s Fund leadership programme which led to her first teaching position as a guest lecturer for Leeds University.
Yvonne’s advanced training and passion for learning has put her in high regard among medical peers, industry suppliers and educational institutions and she continues to widen her scope of knowledge as she was recently awarded a first class honours degree in dermatology by Sterling University.
Her outstanding skill and knowledge combined with her teaching experience has allowed her to train and advise many other practitioners in multiple procedures including Botulinum Toxin A, dermal fillers, peels, thread lifting and PRP. She is also one of Dr Jacques Otto’s expert trainers; a unique position held by just five practitioners in the country (including Dr Otto himself) who can deliver training in Dr Otto’s 5-point lift technique with PDO threads.
Yvonne is passionate about training and mentoring and in 2004 she founded the professional membership organisation PIAPA (Private Independent Aesthetic Practices Association), which offers support and guidance for practitioners working in the aesthetics industry. As a respected name in the industry Yvonne resides on the board of The Journal of Aesthetic Nursing and consults with governmental bodies such as Health Education England and the NMC regarding developing frameworks and qualifications. She is one of few nurses to hold a Post Graduate Certificate specifically in medical aesthetics and now also mentors for Northumbria University.
