Botox is in high demand from UK consumers. This represents a significant opportunity for trained medical professionals – such as nurses, doctors and dentists – to diversify into aesthetics. Aesthetic treatments, such as Botox, can be a great way to generate income from your clinic as well as the opportunity to develop new, specialist skills. It’s also an exciting route for your continuous professional development in the medical field.
But with so many Botox courses out there, and many of them not aimed at medical professionals specifically, how do you know which Botox training courses are right for you?
Botox Courses for Beginners
Whether you’re a medical professional who’s looking to develop their professional skills or you want to enhance your practical knowledge in aesthetics, courses for Botox and fillers are best started at a beginner’s level.
Recognised through the industry, our CPD-certified programmes drive confidence and proficiency in practice for nurses, dentists and doctors looking to move into the exciting field of aesthetic medicine.
As part of our Foundation Botox and Dermal Fillers course, you’ll learn:
- Medical and aesthetic theory to build your knowledge prior to practice
- Guidance from our expert trainers on the delivery of Botox and dermal fillers
- Upper face Botulinum Toxin techniques
- Lip enhancement, correction of nasolabial folds, correction of marionette lines, cheek augmentation
- How to deliver Botox and dermal fillers on live models
- Protocol on management of complications
We offer the highest level of supervision on our courses – meaning that you can practice aesthetic medicine the next day, provided that you demonstrate the knowledge and skills required. This is something that is an essential part of any beginner’s aesthetics training. You need to have a level of supervision that ensures that you can work safely and skilfully for your new clients.
You’ll also receive lifelong access to pre-reading materials and our instructional video library, template patient materials, networking with industry professionals and a practical guidebook. There are also future opportunities to undertake further training to enhance your skills and experience.
What prior experience do you need to have to undertake Botox courses for beginners?
All of our courses are suitable for qualified doctors, dentists and nurses with a valid GMC/GDC/NMC number or international equivalent. As long as you have this experience, we’re able to offer you appropriate training to begin your medical aesthetics career.
We firmly believe that medical professionals are the right people to administer aesthetics treatments, due to their knowledge of anatomy, medical practice, prescribing and hands-on experience with offering medical guidance. Many doctors, dentists and nurses thrive within the medical aesthetics industry, both financially and from a professional development perspective.
By offering aesthetic treatments as a private practitioner, you can benefit from increased patient contact time, more flexible hours, less targets and constraints than working in the NHS and a higher earning potential. You’ll also still be making a difference to the lives and wellbeing of patients, which is an important and rewarding part of working as a trained medical professional in any industry.
The cosmetic treatment industry in the UK is currently under-regulated which leads to poor patient experience, a lack of medical training in those carrying out treatments and poor sanitation/hygiene practices and aftercare within the industry. By equipping nurses, dentists and other medical professionals with the skills and knowledge to offer these treatments effectively, we believe that standards (and reputation) can be raised within the industry.
As an experienced medical professional, you will be better placed to offer corrective treatments for existing and new patients. For example, if you’re a dentist who is looking to train in aesthetics, you can also use these skills to correct cosmetic dental and oral issues such as a gummy smile, masseteric hypertrophy and bruxism.
