This course consists of the following:


Day One: Foundation Botulinum Toxin (10 CPD Hours) Full Day course including pre-course e-Learning.

The first day of your three-day course will teach you how to safely and successfully carry out treatments using Botulinum Toxin.

Before attending this stage of the course, we recommend that you come as prepared as possible by reading our interactive e-learning materials; this helps ensure that you can experience the full benefits that the course offers.

What is Botulinum Toxin (Botox)?

Botulinum Toxin, more commonly known as Botox, is a popular injectable neurotoxin that is used to treat wrinkles and lines on the face caused by repeated facial movements and expressions such as smiling and frowning.

What's Involved in Botox Treatment?

Administering Botox only takes a matter of minutes as a small amount of the substance is injected into specific muscles that cause lines using a fine needle.

Once administered, the muscles start to relax, and the affected areas of the skin smooth out with visible results usually found 10 - 14 days after treatment.

Due to Botulinum Toxin preventing any muscle contractions, the treatment also prevents any new lines and wrinkles from appearing. The effects of botox treatment can last between 3 to 6 months.

How can I prepare for Botox training?

As outlined above, we strongly urge you to read our pre-course e-learning materials before training; this will help you prepare for what's included in the training so you can fully benefit from each stage of the course.

Pe-course materials provided cover the following topics:

  • Skin & Facial Anatomy
  • What is Botulinum Toxin
  • How Botulinum Toxin works
  • Storage & Dilution
  • Prescribing
  • Assessing lines and wrinkles
  • Treatment areas covered include: Nasoglabellar Lines/"Bunny Scrunch" (Prevents the compensation lines from a glabella treatment), Glabella "Frown Lines", Frontalis "Forehead Lines", Crows Feet
  • Patient selection and treatment options
  • Case studies
  • Product Placement
  • Managing Expectations
  • Consultation, Contraindications and Aftercare
  • Practical Injection Technique & Observation

What Happens During Day 1 of Training?

The first day of training will involve an interactive presentation covering all aspects of botox treatment, a review of your e-learning materials, and a practical learning session with a demonstration on correctly administering Botox to patients.

How Does Practical Botox Training Work?

Upon completing the interactive presentation, you will also be given time to undertake a full medical consultation with your assigned model. This will involve assessing their face, determining whether they are suitable for treatment and letting them know side effects and risks involved with the treatment.

Once the above has been completed, you will then be able to carry out treatment on your model under the close supervision of our trained educator. Practical sessions enable delegates to observe a wide range of treatment techniques and processes that are difficult to interpret on paper.

Day Two: Foundation Dermal Filler (14 CPD Hours) Full Day course including pre-course e-Learning.

The second day of treatment will involve learning how to safely administer dermal fillers.

Pre-course materials are provided before the training day, and it's strongly urged that these materials are used before attending.

How does the Dermal Filler training course work?

The course is designed to make you a safe and successful aesthetic practitioner. To achieve this, we will need you to digest all e-learning materials provided before the course starts so you are fully prepared for what's in-store when training starts.

When preparing for the course, we would also recommend that you create a list of questions to ask your educator on the day. By thoroughly preparing for the class, you can help ensure that you are confident enough to carry out the practical stage of the course.

Our educators will immediately introduce you to delivering treatments with aesthetic cannula as part of this stage of the course. You will be shown how to use needle and cannula techniques using the following indications:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Zygomatic volume replacement
  • Malar volume replacement

What happens during day 2 of training?

The morning schedule will first involve a chat about any worries/concerns about the treatment. If you have any questions before starting the training, after this, you will then move on to a further discussion about the theory behind dermal filler treatment, including facial anatomy and physiology, different dermal filler products available, and injection techniques.

Due to the importance of patient consent and the consultation phase of dermal filler treatment, you will be provided with all the documentation needed when undertaking the treatment at your practice. 

Once all the above has been completed, we will take a lunch break and then move on to the practical phase of the course in the afternoon. The practical phase will involve putting your skills and newly acquired knowledge into practice by providing treatments to models under the guidance of our trained practitioners.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face and help lift and enhance facial contours to give a more youthful appearance.

How does dermal filler treatment work?

Dermal fillers are administered using a syringe in very small doses to specific areas of the face and head such as around the eyes, along the jawline, around the lips and the forehead. The number of injections required and where they're administered on the face and head depends on the type of filler that is used and what results the patient desires.

Results can be seen immediately following treatment as the filler softens or plumps out the sunken area or lines on the face.

After the injection, bruising and swelling are also expected and will disappear naturally days after treatment.

Depending on what type of filler has been used, the results of the treatment can last from 4 to 20 months.

Day Three: Universal Lips (12 CPD Hours)

The 3rd day is optional. If you would prefer to just do the first two days and then come back at a later date to train in Universal Lips, this is fine.

This stage of the course will look to build upon your acquired dermal filler knowledge by giving you the tools needed to make a clinical judgement on what techniques to use when treating a patient's lips to achieve the most successful outcome.

We will look to teach you how to examine the evidence-based applied anatomy of the lip so you can determine the most effective and safest way to inject hyaluronic acid into the lip.

Upon completing this stage of the course, you should be fully competent in volumising and contouring lips.

The course has a total of 36 CPD hours, with the following included:

  • E-learning
  • All Consultation Documents
  • Video to help you learn anatomy
  • Video of Consultation
  • Video of Dermal Filler Treatment being delivered
