Advanced Aesthetic Training Course
The advanced aesthetics course includes a more high-level combination of facial aesthetics which is designed to develop further knowledge of non-surgical aesthetics, a combination including the more advanced Botox, Dermal Fillers & full facelift techniques.
Training for the Advanced Aesthetic Training Course includes the following facial aesthetic topics:
- Cheek enhancing
Enhancing a person’s apple of their cheeks lead to the cheeks having a ‘fuller’ effect, rather than just erasing lines and wrinkles. It also can look immediately more youthful.
- Cheekbone definition
Filler advanced procedures are used to enhance cheekbone definition and shape and define a face
- Jawline definition
Filler advanced procedures can also be used to enhance the jaw-line. When filler is applied along this area it immediately tightens the jawline and gives a fresher look, as it helps balance out the nose and cheeks.
When applied to the jowl areas the filler fills the “sag” look. An easy yet dramatic look can be gained through this procedure.
Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be treated using Botox. Small doses of the botulinum toxin are injected into the skin, blocking the actions of the nerves that supply the eccrine glands thus preventing the glands from producing sweat.
- Nose hump correction with dermal fillers
A dermal filler nose hump correction changes the proportions and definition of the nose in order for it to appear straighter, narrower and more lifted.
- Liquid facelift
A liquid facelift is a procedure that combines a dermal filler with Botox to give the appearance of a facelift without the need for surgery. It is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
- 8 point facelift
An 8 Point Face Lift is a specialised volumizing and lifting facial treatment, and it is sometimes also known as a liquid facelift or non-surgical facelift.
- Tear trough
Tear trough filler smooths the dip under the eyes by filling in the hollow that becomes deeper as we age.
- Scar correction
Soft-tissue fillers injections can be used to temporarily improve the appearance of depressed scars.
- Advanced anatomy
A detailed knowledge of human anatomy is a pre-requirement for administering advanced facial aesthetic treatments.
- Complications – use of Hyaluronidase
Hyaluronic acid (HA)-based dermal fillers are the most commonly used fillers in the aesthetics market.
- Brow lifting
A brow lift is when dermal fillers are injected behind the eyebrow to gently lift the sagging eyelid and create a ‘lifted’ effect rather than just erasing lines and wrinkles.
- Advanced Botulinum Toxin procedures (over 14 indications) including:
Jawline (Nefertiti lift)
Clients are increasingly aware of which procedures are available. The rise of Instagram and social media means that not too long after you start working in aesthetics you will get questions about cheek lifting, brow lifting, jaw defining etc.
And so, this advanced course is designed to give you a full portfolio of skills and to offer the latest treatments that are possible.

“This has been an excellent course. It was recommended to us and I would highly recommend this to others. I look forward to doing the advanced courses in the future. Thank you for a great day!” – Callum Rushforth – Orthodontist

Attendees should bring their picture ID (Driving License or Passport).
What are ‘aesthetics’ in the cosmetics world?
Non-surgical aesthetics, also known as cosmetic aesthetics and facial aesthetics, describes the use of medically based procedures to cause a facial cosmetic change or enhancement.
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,
Advanced Dermal Filler Study
Dermal fillers are an important component of advanced aesthetics training and practice. The Dr Hennessy Academy’s dermal filler courses are suitable for dentists, doctors, nurses and midwives:
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
Advanced Aesthetics FAQ’s
How many procedures do you teach on an advanced course?

Can I bring a model to the advanced course?
You may, however, we would need to know the treatment your model would be wanting. There is a small charge for the model to pay, and we would need a non-smiling selfie to check they are suitable. Please be aware that other delegates can be injecting on your model.
Do you have any videos for us to watch after we have completed the course?
We have a small number of advanced videos on our private Facebook page, which can only be accessed by previous delegates.
