Aesthetic Training

How do I become an aesthetic practitioner?

If you are a surgeon, doctor, dentist or nurse interested in becoming an aesthetic practitioner and beginning a career in cosmetics, we recommend you attend our one-day Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training Course. This course consists of 13 CPD hours and will provide you with an opportunity to learn some of the most popular Botox and Dermal Filler treatments in the aesthetic industry. This course will address basic aesthetic treatments such as: upper face 3 areas Botox, nose to mouth lines, marionette lines and corners of the mouth. A morning of theory based learning involving information on practical and business skills will be followed by an afternoon of practical hands on experience on patients provided by us. At Cosmetic Courses, we believe that first-hand practice is one of the best ways to learn, hence, our team of co-ordinators put a great deal of effort into providing models who are best suited to the treatments you will be learning. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance which is recognised by all major aesthetic insurance companies. Once delegates have their insurance in place, they can begin practicing.

After completing the Foundation Botox course, many delegates go on to attend either our Botox and Dermal Fillers Bespoke Training Course or our Introduction to Lip Filler Courses. These training courses will provide you with further expert knowledge, confidence and practise techniques. We also offer a one-day CPD accredited one-day Advanced Course designed to expand the number of treatments you are offering on your aesthetic menu. This cosmetic course is suitable for delegates who are already highly confident in non-surgical aesthetic treatments and have excellent technique in doing so.

At Cosmetic Courses, we also offer a Level 7 Diploma in Injectables for Clinical Aesthetic Treatments. This is an industry-recognised advanced qualification for both medical professionals considering a career in aesthetic medicine as well as those who are already practicing but are looking to obtain formal recognition for their knowledge and skills. If you are a surgeon, doctor, dentist or nurse interested in beginning a career in non-surgical aesthetic treatments, this is a great option for you.

All training courses at Cosmetic courses use genuine Botox and Juvederm filler for training. These training courses take place in 7 award winning academy clinic across the UK including, Harley Street London, Buckinghamshire, Leeds, Nottingham and Belfast.

At Cosmetic Courses, we also offer a number of skin rejuvenation training courses to Beauty Therapists NVQ Level 3.

Our one-day Chemical Skin Peel Training Course is one of our most popular training courses for aesthetic therapists. We also offer a one-day Microneedling with an Introduction to Chemical Peel Training Course which is an advanced skin cleansing and rejuvenation combination treatment. Following on from these training courses, you will have obtained a clinical and practical skill base that will enable you to immediately integrate this procedure into your practice.

Can you train in Botox without being medically qualified?

At Cosmetic Courses, we only train surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses with a current GMC, GDC or NMC, or equivalent if you are an overseas delegate, in injectable treatments such as Botox and Filler. There is currently no law in the UK to prevent non-medical professionals from training in Botox and Filler treatments. Having said this, the general agreement in the aesthetic medical industry, as well as the entire medical sector, is that Botox and Filler treatments should only be performed by qualified and experienced medical professionals. It is also likely that in the near future, regulations to prevent medical professionals from performing injectables will be introduced.

If you are thinking of aesthetics training, it is also important to bear in mind that Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is a prescription only medicine (POM). This means that the person prescribing the Botox must have completed their independent prescribing course. Alternatively, medical professionals who have not completed their prescribing course, such as non-prescribing nurses, can work alongside a medical professional who can prescribe Botox to their patient following an initial consultation.

How long does it take to get certified to do Botox?

On successful completion of our one-day Botox and Filler Foundation Training Course, you will receive a certificate of attendance which is recognised by all major insurance companies. Once delegates have their insurance in place, they can begin practicing. Having said this, we do recommend completing our more advanced Bespoke Training course or Lip Filler Training Course following the Foundation Botox Course, in order to advance your technique and improve your confidence and knowledge in these treatments.
