Advanced Botulinum Toxin & Dermal Fillers Course

Course Introduction

By far our most popular course, this CPD-certified programme* will allow you to build on your foundation knowledge and skills to become proficient in advanced aesthetic techniques. This course is designed for those who wish to expand into more advanced methods of facial rejuvenation, including the treatment of functional issues such as hyperhidrosis, facial contouring methods and the use of the microcannula.

The Advanced Course focuses heavily on the practical aspect of Botulinum Toxin (sometimes known as Botox®) and dermal fillers, with greater time scheduled for hands-on training with live model patients under the close supervision of facial surgeons.
