Cosmetic Courses have offered accredited training courses in aesthetic medicine since 2002. For more information on any of our courses, please contact the team on 01844 318317 or email [email protected].
As long as you’re a Registered Nurse with current registration with the NMC, you’re eligible to train in the use of Botox and fillers.
Training can be completed in one day, and will qualify you to offer both Botox and filler treatments to your own patients.
But bear in mind that Botulinum Toxin is a prescription-only medicine. So unless you’re a Nurse Prescriber, you’ll always need to work with someone else who can prescribe it.
For that reason, we’d recommend your Aesthetic Nurse training also includes an Independent Nurse Prescriber Course. These are offered on a part-time basis at colleges and universities and can usually be completed in around 4 months.
Being able to prescribe Botulinum Toxin, as well as administer it, will make you a valuable asset to potential employers. It’ll also make it easier to set up and run your own business further down the line.
Other Aesthetic Nurse training options
Once you’ve trained in Botox and fillers, you’re ready to start practising as an Aesthetic Nurse. But in time, you’ll probably want to be able to offer more treatments to your patients.
You can add more to your repertoire at your own pace, as and when you’re ready. It’s simply a case of deciding which treatments you’d like to offer your patients, and completing the appropriate course.
Whatever you choose to learn on your Aesthetic Nurse training journey, it’s a great time to get on the aesthetics learning curve.
If the UK market keeps growing (and with an increasing – and ageing – population, it seems likely), you can expect to carve out an extremely rewarding career, both financially and professionally.

Adrian and co-author Hywel Dafydd have just received a ‘Highly Commended’ in the prestigious BMA Medical Book Awards.
Very well done!
About “Key Notes”
If you’ve trained as a Plastic Surgeon, you may be familiar with the book.
Adrian wrote the first edition of “Key Notes on Plastic Surgery” in 1999, while sitting his final plastic surgery exams (yes – he wasn’t quite busy enough).
Unable to find a suitably concise general plastics textbook for those revising for the FRCS (Plast), he decided he’d write one himself.
The book is, to quote Ian T Jackson MD, Director of Craniofacial & Reconstructive Surgery, Institute for Craniofacial & Reconstructive Surgery, “only the meat without all the unnecessary trimming”.
It’s formatted as a collection of short revision notes covering all aspects of plastic surgery – trauma, elective surgery, burns, reconstructive surgery and Adrian’s own specialism, aesthetic procedures.
Bullet points and diagrams make it easy for student surgeons to dip in and find the information they need. Ideal for those late coffee-fuelled nights cramming for finals!
Mr Dafydd, a talented young surgeon who’s recently travelled the world learning the latest surgical techniques, wrote most of the updated second edition.
He’s used his broad, up-to-date knowledge of the latest surgical techniques to add more useful content to this edition. In particular, a collection of new diagrams to address the feedback received from junior surgeons.
The book was Highly Commended in the Surgery category, with the winner being the epic ”Atlas of Operative Maxillofacial Trauma Surgery: Primary Repair of Facial Injuries”. A very worthy winner.
About the BMA Medical Book Awards
The BMA Medical Book Awards take placeevery year, with the aim of recognising outstanding contributions to medical literature.
This year’s were held on Thursday 3 September, with Professor Sir Al Aynsley-Green Kt, President of the British Medical Association, attending the evening as guest of honour.
Winners were chosen by an expert panel, who considered each book’s originality, applicability to audience, and production quality.
Prizes were awarded in 21 categories covering all disciplines of medicine. An overall BMA Medical Book of the Year prize was also awarded from among the category winners. This year, the winning book was “Practical Management of Complex Cancer Pain” by Manohar L. Sharma, Sanjeeva Gupta, Michael I. Bennett, and Karen H. Simpson.
Adrian and Hywel are delighted with the commendation for their book. And as Adrian has said he’d like to bring out a new edition every 10 years, perhaps more awards are in store!
“Key Notes on Plastic Surgery (Second Edition)” by Adrian Richards and Hywel Dafydd is is available from all good book shops.
Everybody in our team works hard to provide the most comprehensive service they can to our delegates, both during their training and afterwards. So getting a tip of the hat in these awards is fantastic.
Judging and voting is now underway. The winner in our category will be decided by the judging panel, with no voting process – so you won’t be able to help us with this one. But you can wish us luck!
We’ve been told there were more entries this year than last, and the standard was the highest it’s ever been. So whatever happens from here, we’re really proud to even make it this far.
What happens next?
Voting and judging closes on 30th October. All the winners, as well as the Highly Commended and Commended finalists, will then be announced at the Aesthetics Awards 2015 ceremony on 5th December in London.
About the Aesthetics Awards
The aim of the Aesthetics Awards is to bring together the best in medical aesthetics and leaders in the profession to celebrate the achievements of the past year.
There are 24 categories in total, chosen to recognise a broad cross-section of the aesthetic industry for the contributions they have made. Awards are presented for clinical excellence, product innovation and practice achievement to those who have excelled in the field of aesthetic medicine. That includes clinics and individual practitioners, as well as manufacturers and suppliers.
The awards ceremony takes place on Saturday 5th December at the Park Plaza Hotel, Westminster Bridge. It’s expected there will be around 500 guests who – reading the itinerary – can look forward to a fantastic evening.
A drinks reception will be followed by a performance from a top comedian and sit-down dinner. After the main event – the announcement of the winners – we’ll let our hair down with music and dancing until late. Hopefully whilst celebrating, rather than commiserating, with our colleagues and friends!
Watch this space – we’ll be sure to let you know how we get on.

3 great reasons to train in Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
1. It’s relatively easy to incorporate into your business
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty makes a fairly easy add-on to your existing practice. If you’ve already trained in dermal fillers, particularly advanced dermal fillers, it’ll be relatively straightforward for you to adapt what you’ve learned and apply it in a new way.
You’ll already have a good grounding in the techniques, so it’ll be a case of learning about the specific anatomy of the nose, the facial angles and how treatment can affect them. (Click to see our full Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty training programme.)
2. It’s particularly profitable
Once you’ve trained, treatment could make a very profitable addition to your practice.
We’ve recently started offering the Non-Surgical Nose Job at our sister company Aurora Skin Clinics, charging £500 per treatment.
When you consider that treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, it makes for a very impressive profit-to-treatment-time ratio – better than standard dermal filler treatments.
3. There’s good potential for growth
While surgical rhinoplasty remains a popular choice, the total performed in the UK fell by 24% last year – the biggest drop of all major cosmetic procedures.
So there’s plenty of reason to think that demand for Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty will continue to grow, as patients who may have opted for surgery increasingly choose the non-surgical option instead.
Our Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty training is offered by leading specialist and UK Allergan ambassador Mr Ash Labib. For more information on the course, or to book your place, please get in touch with the team on 01844 318316 or email [email protected].
