We offer introductory Botox and Dermal Filler Training Courses for those wishing to start out on a career path in non-surgical aesthetics.
At the most basic level, facial aesthetics are small, non-surgical treatments causing subtle but visible enhancements to your appearance. Clinically safe injectables are used to either block nerve signals to muscles to relax facial expressions (botox) or to define, re-volumise, and accentuate facial contours (dermal fillers).
These are tasks that dentists are exceptionally well-qualified to perform thanks to their knowledge of facial anatomy and their dexterity in performing delicate treatments on a daily basis.
Doctors have lots of relevant knowledge and experience from medical training and practice, so, taking a botox and dermal filler course is a great way for Doctors to expand their knowledge and further their career.
Dentists already work in the field of aesthetics, so our botox and dermal filler courses are in tune with their needs to gain hands-on experience in non-invasive facial surgeries.
Nurses are among the most hard-working and flexible people in the medical industry, expand your career with a botox and dermal filler course, and follow a profession that can push your income further.
Being a midwife is a challenging yet rewarding career, and we tune our courses to help you learn new skills and open your career up to new possibilities.
More commonly known as Botox, it is administered via injections to smooth wrinkles. Botox injections are effective because they weaken or paralyze certain muscles or block certain nerves. Normally, your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles so that they can contract and move. Botox however blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles with the result that the injected muscle can no longer contract (or tighten) as forcefully, causing the wrinkles to relax and soften.
