Why is it important to receive hands-on experience with live models?
In the simplest of terms, if you have never ridden a bike but you regularly use stationery bikes for exercise, do you think you will easily pick it up?
The answer is no. The stationery bike may prepare your body and muscles for the movement but it will not prepare you for the balance needed, the conditions you may be riding in and confidence to get on the bike.
If you train on prosthetic heads in your Botox & dermal filler training, would you feel confident to go out and start treating real life patients?
We hope that answer is no!
The importance of live models
Don’t be a dummy
We regularly have delegates attending our follow on courses who have had basic level training on ‘heads’ with other training providers. They book with us to gain valuable hands on experience but on attendance of our courses they feel their practical skills are inferior to those delegates who have completed training with us previously. Unfortunately they often end up revisiting the basic foundation techniques on live models so that they feel confident to progress.
No two people in this world are made the same (even identical twins) each individual has its own qualities, differences and expectations (no living being in this world can relate to a plastic head). The same goes for patients, in your practice you will never find two patients who are similar. You may find patients are interested in the same treatment but you may also find that you need more product for one than the other, you may also need to recommend other treatments to achieve the end goal for one and both will have their own expectations.
By training with live models and receiving this vital experience under the supervision and guidance of our expert training faculty you are experiencing real life situations that will leave you confident to start treating your own patients.
You will experience key patient and practitioner interaction with the consultation process, how to correctly complete the consent process with before & after photos, assessing and working with patient expectations, discussing aftercare and most importantly administrating the procedure.
The hands on knowledge you will receive will help you to feel confident in your practice and give you something to relate back to, ensuring your patient and practitioner process post training is off to the highest quality.
Prosthetic heads can be a great starting point for a nervous injector or those wanting to practice new techniques but it is important to also gain real life experience with live models whilst in the training environment too.
Training with live models at Cosmetic Courses
At Cosmetic Courses we provide live models for each of our courses. Every model is selected by our co-ordinators in order to provide you with cases covering a variety of gender, ages and skin types. Each model also goes through a consultation and screening process before they attend one of our training sessions.
Cosmetic Courses only train using live models, all provided by our team. This will provide you with an excellent understanding of the consultation, designing a treatment plan, managing your patients’ expectations, appropriate clinical technique and aftercare support.
