Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Course (1 DAY)
£790.00 + VAT
Designed for beginners, our award-winning foundation 1 day course will equip you with the basic knowledge and know-how you need to confidently and professionally administer botulinum toxin (BOTOX®) and dermal filler treatments. You’ll leave the course as an accredited CPD certificate holder and having conducted your first patient treatment, following intensive one to one tuition. At all our training sessions you will practice on state of the art simulation mannequins followed by live model patients.
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.
By the end of this intensive foundation course, you will be able to:
Confidently administer Botox and dermal fillers

ADVICE FOR NON-PRESCRIBERS:
If you are a non-prescriber, you’ll need to work with a prescribing partner to obtain clinical oversight, as the Botulinum toxins necessary for BOTOX® treatments are available by prescription only. A prescribing partner will also offer additional peace of mind and support when using prescription only agents to deal with any complications. We’re happy to advise you further on this – just contact us to find out more.
