Student Reviews

  • "What an amazing 2 day advanced course!
    This course covers all aspects of injectables for students with a medical background. Course was taught by an awesome group of 5 consisting of Doctors, plastic surgeons and Dentist with over 30 years of Aesthetic experience. Course material provided before hand , theory and practicals in house with live models. Very detailed instructions on adverse outcome avoidance and emergency preparedness and procedures.A bonus of business planning with advice and direction for prescribers and insurance.I felt relaxed throughout and confident that I can go out and begin some practice. I highly recommend."

  • "I attended the combined training over 2 days with Derma Institute which I found to be very productive with plenty of hands on training on models. I have trained with another provider previously which I found was poor hence the need for another course. This course led by a team of doctors exceeded my expectations. I now feel confident to start my own practice. There was also very useful business start up advice module covered in this training."
    Ahmed Salim
  • The sessions were very interactive, the trainers were very knowledgable and able to answer all questions. there was a lot of opportunity to practice and build up my confidence and experience. I would definitely recommend this training academy!

  • Great course that gives you confidence to practice independently. Also allows you to have support after the course with the same drs to be able to follow your progress. You are made to feel part of a team and not a client from the very beginning."

  • I was very pleased to find Derma Institute. The course I attended “Combined Botox/Filler Foundation and Advance Training” was just what I needed to get started. The documentation and presentation and the doctors/trainers were all excellent, supportive and helpful. I would strongly recommend this Derma Institute course to anyone like me planning a career in Medical Aesthetics.

  • Having done my research previously, I felt Derma Institute was the best aesthetic training company suited to help develop my skills as an Aesthetic Doctor. The level of expertise and professionalism I experienced exceeded my expectations. There was lots of hands on experience, i will be returning for the advanced sessions soon! - thank you Derma Institute team.

  • Excellent weekend of Botox/Filler training with plenty of model patients to practice on- a lot of them requiring a variety of treatments. I learnt all the common basic and advanced techniques. There were 3 very experienced and friendly trainers leading the small group. I previously attended training several months back which was terrible and compared to that this was on another level. I feel very confident and they also provided excellent post course guidance to start your own practice or work for other clinics. I felt this training was much less commercial and more about becoming a safe and competent practitioner 5**

  • A team of real professionals, who beside their skills of injecting and treating patients, they have great teaching and explaining techniques & manuals. Really received more than i expected from the combined course i've had here, doesn't matter if you're a beginner or already practiced, you really could gain a lot of improvements out here!

  • Amazing Aesthetics course! The team at Derma.... where do I start! From the materials to the expert knowledge of Dr Tukmachi, Dr Siddiqi and Dr Karkhi. This course really prepares you for being an independent practitioner.
