This advanced Botox® and dermal fillers training course is perfect for those wanting to further expand their foundation training. Delegates should be comfortable with the foundation techniques and ready to take their clinical skills to the next level.


Course Aims

By the end of this intensive advanced course, you will be able to:

Confidently administer Botox and dermal fillers
You can deepen your understanding of the science of botulinum toxins and dermal fillers, including: advanced injection techniques for wider aesthetic indications. You will gain confidence in more advanced techniques and develop a facial rejuvenation and beautification approach to your practice.

Apply ethics and law in aesthetic medicine
Good medical practice is essential for a long-term career in aesthetics. Have an understanding of how to protect yourself and your patients legally and ethically.

Incorporate psychology into your consultations
Recognising healthy and unhealthy psychological drivers is crucial for good practice in aesthetic medicine. Understand the signs of body dysmorphia, and how to deal with patients who may need to be refused treatment.


Our intensive training will take place over a full day and we ask you to provide a model on the day. If you struggle to find a model we can help to source one for you. Full course material will be provided prior to your selected date and a mentoring program will be set up for you once the course is completed. We aim to continually support you in the days and months following your training.

This advanced course is the final training (part 2) that is required to complete module 1 for the Level 7 course.
After successfully completing the advanced course, we organise stage 2 and stage 3 dates to complete the level 7 qualification. These two parts typically take 6-18 months to complete – depending on your own timescales. In Stage 2 we organise 4 Supervised Treatment Days to allow further practical training on live cosmetic models. We build the required portfolio needed for final submission. In Stage 3 you complete written coursework and attend a practical OSCE assessment day.

Upon successful completion of training, our delegates will receive an accredited level 7 qualification in aesthetic injectables which is regulated by the government’s office of qualifications OFQUAL
