Botox Courses for Beginners

If you are looking for a new challenge in your career as a healthcare professional then completing a Botox and dermal filler foundation course can be one of the best things you can do.

With this new qualification, you can officially carry out your own aesthetics practice and be confident in your ability to deliver a quality service to your patients.

As making the jump into this field can be a big decision, we recommend you take care when selecting your foundation course and choose one that is right for you while being accredited by the CPD Certification Service.

Can anyone take this course?

As Botox is strictly a prescription only medication, it has to be prescribed by a registered prescriber. The industry is well on its way to embracing regulation that means only current healthcare professionals will be able to access aesthetics and Botox training courses. 

It is important for the prescriber to be able to knowledgably review a patient’s medical history to ensure Botox is suitable for them. That is why currently doctorsnursespharmacistsdentists, and some other medical professionals can all prescribe Botox following a consultation with a patient.

While our courses are solely for healthcare professionals, only those with the relevant certification will be able to prescribe Botox. If you can’t prescribe then you can work alongside someone (such as a Doctor or Dentist) who will be able to prescribe – but they will have to attend the face-to-face client consultation.

Is the course accredited and insured?

As mentioned above, CPD certification is the best class for aesthetics training accreditation. Starting your new career with a CPD accredited course will set you on the right path for the future as when you complete any further training you will have a CPD record that you can add to.

Furthermore, CPD evidence is often needed when applying for a job or when registering with a medical body such as the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, or the General Medical Council.

Up to date insurance is an absolute must. You should be covered by the providers insurance for the duration of the course, but always be sure to check first. Quality course providers should also provide guidance on what insurance you will need when starting your own business.

Will you receive any business advice?

For many people taking a Botox and dermal filler foundation course, this will be the first step in an exciting career venture. Many healthcare professionals will not possess much business knowledge and it can be very beneficial to choose a course where you will receive quality information on starting your own business from proven professionals.

Some courses will provide strictly the practical training to administer non-surgical aesthetic procedures. You will find courses that offer business advice a lot more valuable than these, and it is always nice to know as much as you can before making a big career move.

Do they offer any follow up support?

Knowing that someone is there for you down the line should any issues arise can be invaluable. When new information or research comes on the market will your course provider keep you up to date?

Helpful support does not have to be strictly relating to the practical side of administering Botox or dermal fillers either but can be focused on the business or patient-facing side of running your own practice.   

Would you prefer being taught in a group or one on one?

Small group classes are undoubtedly the best way to affordably learn how to administer Botox and dermal fillers. In a large class, it can be hard to provide the time for everybody to ask questions and get enough quality support. Small classes are perfectly suited to this and

If you want to spare no expense and get the most informative training possible then it is also possible to receive one on one training, although this is usually much more expensive.

After this, the majority of the rest of the day is spent doing practical training under the close supervision of the Botox specialist Dr Stephen Hennessy.
