As our wardrobes change through the seasons, it’s important we do the same with our skincare routines. Different products and treatments help protect the skin for different climates and conditions. We asked Cosmetic Courses expert skin trainer Fleur to share her top skincare saviours in the Summer!

pigment controller

For Hyperpigmentation

All skin types are different and it’s important to work to your own type. For people prone to hyperpigmentation we recommend a product with a tyrannise inhibitor in, this helps slow down the melanocytes over producing the melanin which cause the darker unsightly brown patches on our skin. Fleur recommends NeoStrata Pigment Controller to help with this.

For all skin types

For all skin types we recommend a lighter based moisturiser in the summer than winter as our skin tends to be a little more hydrated due to the weather but shine can build up throughout the day. So ideally a light hydrating moisturiser will work best and ensuring you skin feels and looks its best in the Summer seasons!

sheer hydration

Fleur recommends NeoStrata Sheer Hydration for this. The oil-free daily hydrator also contains SPF 35 to help protect the skin from rays whilst helping control and reduce oiliness.

  • Helps control and reduce oiliness
  • NeoGlucosamine is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of dark spots
  • Evens skin tone and improves skin firmness
  • Provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection

For UV protection

SPF is very important for everybody’s skincare routine and should be used all year round to help prevent harmful UV rays causing photo-ageing. Fleur recommends Heliocare which provides advanced anti-ageing UV protection. Combining high technology mineral & non mineral filters with photobiological protectants.heliocare-advanced-spf-50-gel-50ml-c94A UV protection that goes way beyond traditional sunscreens by providing four advanced levels of protection:
• activating the skin’s immune defences before, during and after sun exposure
• inhibiting DNA damage in skin cells which can lead to cancer
• helping to prevent structural changes in the skin and slowing the ageing process
• reducing sun-induced allergic skin reactions

Chemical Peels are a fantastic treatment and can be personalised for different skin conditions and ages to help get the most out of them. The exfoliating treatment works by removing the dead layers of damaged skin cells on the face leaving a healthy glow behind making the patient feel refreshed and revitalised! 

There is a lot of myths which surround Chemical Peels largely summoned by media and entertainment influence. The most popular being the Samantha scene in Sex in the City peel (not true!) and the second that you cant have a chemical skin peel in the Summer.

Cosmetic Courses expert trainer Fleur took time out of her busy schedule to answer the much asked question.

“Can I have a Chemical Peel in the Summer?”

Yes!

The majority of AHA and BHA chemical peels are safe to have all year round as long as you follow a few basic rules:

  • Always use an SPF that is a physical barrier not chemical barrier with the preferred factor of 50 straight after your peel – this gives you the ultimate protection you need. SPF should be used all year round to help prevent harmful UV rays causing photo-ageing. Introduce it into your morning skincare routine as your last step to help protect your face and neck areas.
  • Part of the process of a skin peel is very much, your skin peels! We advise you keep your face out of direct sunlight for a few days as best you can and this is when your skin will be most vulnerable as it has shed its old layer and a new fresh layer is on show.
  • If you have an event coming up and want a peel before hand to help refresh your skin we advise that for a light peel you leave 5 days for optimum results and 10 days for a stronger peel.

Chemical Peels at Cosmetic Courses

At Cosmetic Courses we offer Chemical Peels at the reduced cost of £70 including microdermabasion, which is an approximate discounts of £100 on normal high street prices. This treatment is available at our Buckinghamshire, Birmingham, Nottingham & Leeds clinics.

Before & After of Chemical Peels

 

At Cosmetic Courses the safety and care of our models has always been at the forefront of what we do. Through our training we pass on this duty of care and hope to develop well educated aesthetic practitioners. As we continue to progress our training we also feel it beneficial to inform our models of what is happening the other side of the syringe.

Up until this point cosmetic treatments have been independently regulated with no formal structures in place. The introduction of a ‘Level 7 Qualification’ is a movement towards a more standardised level of training for medical professionals considering a career in aesthetic medicine. At Cosmetic Courses we pride ourselves on our high standards of training from our expert trainers and clinical training environments, unfortunately this is not the same with other training providers. This movement is in place to try to ensure the safety of the industry. We believe that a huge aspect of making the aesthetics industry as safe as possible is to educate the individuals like yourselves who are having treatments so that you are aware what is happening, what to look for within a practitioner and the important part you can play in helping to make this a regulated, safe industry.

Here at Cosmetic Courses we launched our Level 7 Certificate last year and during this time we’re pleased to say we’ve had lots of delegates embark on their qualification journey. The qualification has become a large part of what we do and we wanted to take this opportunity to explain what this means for our models!

So what exactly is the Level 7?

In education a ‘level’ of any qualification shows the academic stage of each programme. The Level 7 is deemed as the equivalent to a postgraduate level of education.

2012 was a busy year, we witnessed the PIP breast implant scandal and the increasing demand of non-surgical treatments began to sore. This was the same year that the Department of Health appointed Health Education England (HEE) to review and advise on the regulatory framework in the cosmetic industry. Due to the previous issues with breast implants the Department of Health were concerned that they did not want to see any repeat problems in this increasingly popular industry so they decided to conduct a review of all cosmetic procedures.

The review analysed each treatment, their associated risks and the qualifications required for an individual to perform each non-surgical cosmetic intervention. During this process they also made recommendations on accreditation, qualifications and course delivery to ensure that each aspect was being taught inline with a dedicated framework.

Still with us?

Health Education England has suggested that an appropriate level of training for Botox and Dermal Filler treatments is at a Level 7. Meaning regulation!

This is something which we at Cosmetic Courses are proud to be part of. The aesthetic industry is exciting, fast paced and continues to grow rapidly and as much as we love being front runners in a highly competitive industry we also are passionate about safety and care within it.

What does Level 7 mean for our models?

We are glad you asked. You’ll be happy to hear that Level 7 means… more treatments & more appointments!

The Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine is one of our longest courses, so long that it in fact can take up to a year to complete. Delegates will have to undergo a series of courses and tests in the build up to their final examination.

Along with online training, assignments and examination, delegates will also enrol on to our clinical days where we need our models! The days that will be available for models to book on to will be:

  • Foundation Botox & Dermal Filler Training Days (Upper Face Botox & Filler around the Mouth treatments)
  • Clinical Observation Days: this is where our delegates observe our expert trainers performing the treatments so they can gain first hand knowledge of the procedures
  • Supervised Practice Days: our delegates take the lead on this day, performing 10x Botox & Dermal Filler treatments under the watchful eye of our expert trainers

Which treatment can I have as part of the Level 7 courses?

For Level 7 we train our delegates in combination treatments. This works perfectly for models as it saves time and allows them to get more than one treatment whilst visiting. Models can have the following treatments as part of the Level 7 course days: *

  • Upper face Botox and cheek filler
  • Upper face Botox and lip filler
  • Upper face Botox and filler around the mouth

*Please note that all models attending the Foundation Days can only have upper face Botox and/or filler around the mouth.

If you would like to know more about the Level 7 qualification and book on to one of our upcoming training days as a model please contact us today to register your interest: 01844 390110 / [email protected] 

When it comes to Cosmetic Courses an important part of our service is ensuring you are at the forefront of our care. As we continue to grow we feel it’s vital to keep it that way. So with this in mind you may have noticed a few new faces in our clinics to look after you while you’re with us!

Cosmetic Courses is very pleased to welcome both Hayley and Mary to our team. Hayley will be looking after our models and delegates in our Nottingham and Birmingham locations and Mary will be with us in Buckinghamshire running our reception.

Meet Hayley & Mary

What’s your favourite part about the job?

Hayley: “I have two favourite parts! One is helping the delegates with their exciting new career in aesthetics. It’s nice to answer their questions, help to get them started and see them bloom as they embark on their new journey. It’s also great to see them again for more advanced training and hearing how well they are doing in their new career. The second thing is spending time with the models who are coming for treatment and seeing how pleased they are with their results. With it being so affordable it’s lovely to see the models regularly when they come back for more appointments.”

Mary: “It’s hard to pick one favourite! I have to say the thing that I most enjoy is that everyday is different. I love meeting all the models and delegates who come in and especially love it when I see repeat faces come into reception. I’m also really enjoying how much I am learning, it’s a fantastic industry with something new at every turn!”

What’s your go to skin saviour? 

Hayley: “My go to skin Saviour has to be Clinical Moisturising Complex. I use this as my daily routine, this product hydrates, firms and moisturises my skin always leaving my skin feeling fresh and glowing.”

Mary: “Mine has to be a NeoStrata peel! It keeps my skin feeling super soft and hydrated. It also helps my daily skincare routine work even better into my skin.”

What’s your perfect day off?

Hayley: “A perfect day off would be a nice lie in to feel refreshed. Then lunch followed by a bit of shopping with friends. A lovely country walk with my little dog then to finish a nice cosy night in with dinner and a relaxing bath. I love to relax and recharge on a day off.”

Mary: “My perfect day off is a duvet day with loads of snacks and a feel good film!”

Who is your celebrity influence?

Hayley: “My Celebrity influence is Blake Lively, She has great style and sophistication, always looks stunning. She also has a lovely figure which women can relate too. Successful career, family and beauty… for me she is someone I admire.”

Mary: “I don’t really have a celebrity influence … I have a celebrity crush and that’s Cillian murphy lol!”

The festive season has well and truly begun. With Christmas party invites hitting our inboxes and the hunt for the perfect party outfit commencing. It’s no wonder we don’t have a lot of time to think about our skin preparation as well! Here at Cosmetic Courses we want to take one less hassle off you this year. Helping your skin to glow this Christmas.

Skin Glowing Party Peels

Did you know that the winter is the best times to kick start a skin care regime? Your skin is on a daily battle with harsh weather conditions. This may be promoting the flare up of skin conditions such as Rosacea and Eczema as well as increased ageing. The lack of vitamin C and the influx of cold winds all contribute to skin problems throughout the winter months.

Now is the time to give your skin some TLC and let it glow this Christmas.

Enter Chemical Peels. This non-invasive treatment is continuously growing in popularity. With celebrity influences and dermatologist’s advice it’s a wonder these have never been at the top of our winter to-do lists before.

What is a Chemical Peel?

The clinical grade skin treatment helps to target problem skin. Including: black heads, oil congestion, dry/flaky skin, dull/dehydrated skin and pigmentation. Alternatively it can be used to encourage anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation. Using a bespoke mixture to suit your skins needs, the substance is applied over the face using a small brush technique. The peel works by penetrating into the epidermis reaching a deeper point than any home remedies could.

The peel wakes up new collagen in the skin. Stimulating skin cell growth and in turn provides the top layer with a healthy glow. By accelerating the skin’s turnover it speeds up and supports our healing process which helps to improve various skin problems. Once the treatment is complete patients usually experience brighter skin with smaller pores and the appearance of blemishes reduced.

What are the benefits of having a Chemical Peel in the winter?

  • UV levels are lower this time of year so the risk of damaging sun exposure is limited
  • Chemical peels are more effective when booked as a course of treatments. The winter proves a great time to start a course of treatment in time for healthy summer skin
  • Skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation & premature ageing are easier to treat through peels during the winter as there is less sun exposure
  • Peels also work well in conjunction with many aesthetic procedures. Patients can still keep up with their injectable maintenance throughout the peel process as long as the skin is given time to settle in between treatments.
  • It’s important to step up our skin care regime in preparation for the harsher months. Skin peels are proven to make your skin care products perform better as there are no dead skin cells impending the penetration of products

A common question we get at Cosmetic Courses from our models is how to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Many are quick to jump to Botox as the answer but for the majority of the time there is another injectable which leads the way. 

The mouth is the area of the face which sees the most movement, thus encouraging more wrinkles and fine lines and can be a real tell tale sign of the ageing process. Common concerns we see are that from smoker’s lines, downturned mouth corners, nose to mouth and mouth to chin lines. Ageing in appearance can cause a lack of self confidence and many will jump at a quick cure instead of finding out what works for them. At Cosmetic Courses we pride ourselves on our tailor made treatment plans to help all models in their non-surgical journey.

By using Dermal Fillers volume can be reintroduced into these areas. The result minimises the effects of lines and causes the mouth area to look youthful, banishing signs of ageing. When performed in a safe environment, Dermal Fillers can produce natural, long lasting results that leave you feeling confident and rejuvenated.

Problem areas the can be treated with dermal fillers… 

smokers lines

Smoker’s lines

 

These are formed from a combination of factors such as ageing, sun exposure, heredity influences and the self explanatory smoking lines. They show as small vertical lines and creases which form around the lip line. In combination with a lack of lip tissue, this creates an undesirable appearance for many patients. Using dermal fillers the smoker’s lines can be filled out, causing the area to soften and appear more youthful.

 

downturned mouthDownturned Mouth Corners

Downturned mouth corners can be easily treated with dermal fillers to lift the corners upwards. This treatment is also called ‘happy mouth’. Caused by gravity pulling as we age, the lip corners can drop inline with other around the mouth lines and wrinkles. Treatment of this can make a subtle yet significant impact to an individuals appearance.

 

nasolabial foldsNose to mouth lines (Nasolabial Folds)

These are the lines from the corner of your nose going down to your mouth. This is the most common area for treatment with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers help to soften the lines resulting in an all round youthful appearance. The softening of these smiles lines can help to rejuvenate the lower face.

 

 

marrionette linesMouth to chin lines (Marionette Lines) 

Marionette  lines are from the corner of your mouth down towards your chin. As we age prominent lines will gradually form in this area and often give the appearance of sadness. By minimising these lines with dermal fillers you can achieve a brighter more youthful appearance.

 

What is a dermal filler?

Dermal fillers are a natural substance formed from Hylaronic Acid (HA). HA is naturally found in our bodies. As we get older our bodies loose a lot of it’s HA causing a loss of volume and resulting in an aged appearance. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers are designed to restore volume and enhance features focusing on areas of volume loss and static (showing with no expression) lines rather than the dynamic lines (showing with facial movement).

Most commonly used for the lips and cheek, dermal fillers can treat many areas of the face. Due to its natural consistency this injectable is a great non-surgical approach for anti-ageing. Instead of relaxing the muscles it helps to fill the problem area.

Why are dermal fillers preferred over Botox for around the mouth? 

Both injectables work fantastically so it’s important when coming to a clinic with a concern that you have an open mind about what can be done to treat it.

Dermal fillers work by reintroducing the volume lost around the mouth which is causing the wrinkles. As these lines are static (showing with no expression), filler achieves greater results. Whereas Botox works by relaxing the muscles. This prevention of movement enables the collagen to restore itself within the area which over time softens the lines.

Dermal Filler Treatments at Cosmetic Courses

Cosmetic Courses has been training medical professionals in the UK since 2002. As one of the longest-established providers we pride ourselves on the quality of our training and the products we use for treatment. This means that you are receiving the safest possible treatment as a model with us. The added bonus is that the treatment with us is a fraction of the high street cost.

If you would like to speak to a member of our team please call us now on 01844 390110 or register here to receive further information.

It’s no secret that non-surgical treatments have taken the world by storm. Recent news has researched that Liverpool has become Britain’s hotspot for non-surgical tweaks. With Dentists waiting rooms, backs of salons and even “Botox parties” all offering injectables. The importance of finding a safe, perfect practitioner grows increasingly stronger. 

Non-surgical treatments when done correctly can create fantastic, life changing results. They help boost confidence while often being more affordable with less downtime than cosmetic surgery.

Although a quick fix, at a cheap price can seem tempting. It’s important that you do your research in finding the perfect practitioner!

What to look for in finding your practitioner…

  1. Registered medical professionals:

The aesthetics industry is thriving, everybody and anybody wants to practice injectables for extra income. With little regulation in the industry, patients need to be aware of who is doing their treatments. At Cosmetic Courses we only teach registered Dr’s, Nurses & Dentists. Their registration and qualifications can be checked which shows us that they are practicing as medical practitioners in their respective fields. Although fairly uncommon, complications can occur following any aesthetic procedure. It is important to know your practitioner is knowledgeable and can deal with them quickly and efficiently should they arise .

You can check if your practitioner is a registered medical professional on the following sites by simply searching their name:

These sites are free to use and can help you in making an important decision!

  1. Examples of their work: 

 

It’s easy to claim other practitioners work as your own. A google search for lip fillers can bring up thousands of before and afters including many celebrities who have had the treatment. Practitioners that either rely celebrity before and afters (which isn’t their work) or have no before and afters, are ones to be wary of. A good artist likes to show off their work. Picasso never put forward Michelangelo’s work in order to advertise his own. So why would a practitioner put forward someone else’s work to advertise their own?

Those who are confident in their results are happy to post or show before and afters. Many of their patients will also be willing to help other potential patients understand the treatment and their results better by allowing the use of their photos as well as writing raving reviews. Plus, the more before and afters they have, often means the more patients they have treated- and potentially more experience!

  1. Clinical environment: 

     

The environment in which the practitioner is treating from can tell you a lot. At Cosmetic Courses we advise all of our delegates to practice in clinical environments. Such as setting up their own clinic, joining an existing clinic or implementing it into their current clinic.  Practitioners will have on hand all the consumables and wash facilities they need to treat you and the injectables are kept in the required conditions.

  1. Pre and after care:

If you are thinking of having any non-surgical treatment, even if you have already had treatment done before it is important that your practitioner offers you a consultation. This allows them to assess the problem area and understand why you want the treatment done. Some time  from the consultation to the actual treatment day should be offered to allow you to think about what you are having done and raise any further questions you may have. Your practitioner needs to also provide and talk you through aftercare to ensure you are fully informed on what to expect and if any complications arise, how to handle them or who to contact.

Non-surgical treatments are continuing to rise in popularity and anybody can claim to be a practitioner. It is important that you always check thoroughly the practitioner, previous work and the clinic before booking anywhere. 

Non-Surgical Treatments at Cosmetic Courses

At Cosmetic Courses we train medical professionals in the field of aesthetics. Our comprehensive training days allow delegates to get hands on experience from the help of our team of CC models.

Being a CC model means that you receive high quality treatment using products such as Allergan’s Botox® & Juvederm dermal filler under the watchful eye and instruction from our team of expert trainers.

As you are having your treatment administered in a training environment the price of treatment will be considerably lower than most high street clinics. You can expect there to be experienced trainers watching the procedure and sometimes demonstrating different techniques themselves.

It’s important to understand that all practitioners who come to our courses already have established medical backgrounds with the relevant transferable skills and knowledge to help them move into the aesthetic field.

kylie jenner before and after lip filler experience

Transformation of Kylie Jenners lips through dermal filler

In 2015 the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that more than 27,000 lip procedures took place in the U.S.  Stating a lip procedure was performed every 20 minutes, with a rise of 43% of new patients since 2000.

As one of the most googled beauty procedures, lip fillers are rising in popularity by the day. With the likes of Kylie Jenner leading a revolution in plumper pouts.

Non-surgical treatments are a big decision to make. We spoke to a new #CCmodel who recently had lip fillers in our Buckinghamshire clinic about her experience and what made her choose to have the treatment.

What made you decide to have lip fillers?

“I was quite self conscious about my top lip as when I smiled it disappeared. It seems that the recent trend is for everyone to have bigger, fuller lips following on from Kylie Jenner. This was something which drew me to the procedure- seeing how it worked on other people”

Why did you book with Cosmetic Courses for this treatment?

“I follow Cosmetic Courses on Instagram. The rapport with existing models from the Cosmetic Courses team made me feel like I was coming into a supportive community. I called to enquire about the treatment and the team were so knowledgeable I felt a lot more confident – this was a big part of it for me.”

Did you have an end result in mind from your appointment?

“I wanted it to be very natural and not obvious at all. Ohla seemed to know exactly what I was talking about! She ensured me that, especially as it was the first time I was getting fillers, that it’s always better to start off with less, you can then go back if you want to go bigger. They’re only minimally bigger but it’s made such a difference to how I feel.”

Can you give us a run down of your day being a Cosmetic Courses model?

“I’d been thinking back and fourth for such a long time about having it done before actually going ahead and booking it. Before coming in I was looking in the mirror A LOT just trying to imagine the difference it might make. On the drive there I was getting a little nervous because, despite there being a really low chance of something going wrong, there’s always a little worry that you might be that one person! From walking in I was made to feel very comfortable and I was given all the forms to fill out which made the whole experience  extremely professional. They took some “before” photos of me and I was then given some numbing cream for my lips. before and after lip fillers (1)

Ohla came to the reception to bring me into the treatment  room. Both the trainer and delegate asked me what I was looking for and talked openly about the amount of filler they felt was needed and in what areas.  I found it very  reassuring to hear Olha discuss the procedure with her delegate, as although this was a training day for him I also learnt a lot about the treatment and felt at ease with the in depth training happening around me.

One thing I was nervous about was the pain so I was pleasantly surprised that the numbing cream had done its  job. All I felt was a small scratch from the needle, other than that it was basically painless.

Ohla and her delegate talked through any questions I had about aftercare and I was given a sheet of things to expect. I then left and went back to reception for “after” photos and then went home to enjoy my new and improved lips!”

Would you recommend Cosmetic Courses to friends and family?

“Definitely! I know a lot of people that have thought about doing it but I think people are too scared that they’ll end up with HUGE fake looking lips which just isn’t the case, Cosmetic Courses give natural enhancements with your ideals in mind.”

Lastly, do you have any advice for someone who is thinking of having non-surgical treatments?

“I’d say have an idea of what it is that you’d like to achieve and be honest about this to the person doing the treatment so that they can give their opinion and let you know what can realistically be done.”

Thinking of lip fillers?

Our friendly team are here to help in your decision for treatment. Cosmetic Courses is the UK’s leading cosmetic training provider offering high quality lip filler treatment at a third of the high street cost. As a model you will be in the capable hands of our experienced aesthetic trainers as doctors, dentists and nurses are taught the art of lip augmentation.

Coming a close second behind Botulinum Toxin injections, dermal fillers are a firm favourite across the globe. The popular injections are used to add volume to the chosen areas and provide a youthful, plumper appearance. In this guide we take an in depth look into this highly sought after injectable treatment…

What are dermal fillers?

Formed by cross-linking Hyaluronic Acid molecules, dermal filler is a gel-like substance. It works by reintroducing collagen into aged and sunken skin or to enhance certain areas. The results show restored volume, increased definition, contouring and softening of lines. Instead of following botulinum toxin in helping the active lines. Dermal fillers help to combat the static lines, these are the lines that are always there no matter what movement your face is making.

How do dermal fillers work?

Administered by injections, dermal fillers work by injecting small amounts of Hylarunic Acid (HA) under the skin in the chosen areas. The HA wakes up the collagen beneath the skin improving volume to the area. This in turn can help to smooth out wrinkles, fill deep lines or add volume and definition to an area such as the popular lip filler procedure.

What are the dermal filler brands?

As with botulinum toxin there are many brands to choose from when it comes to dermal fillers. They all hold their own research and credentials as to why they feel they stand apart from others on the market. A lot of the brands have also created additional ranges (2nd or 3rd generation) of dermal fillers which are all designed to achieve the best results for different areas of the face. The most popular dermal filler brands are:

  • Restylane
  • Belotero
  • Juvederm

At Cosmetic Courses we use Juvederm dermal fillers by Allergan. Approved by the FDA, Juvederm has been used for many years showing fantastic and safe results. Named the “family of fillers” Juvederm has two different types of filler the Ultra and Vycross range. Both of these ranges have multiple products which vary on density and longevity. Results will differ depending on the technique and area being treated along with your own individual skin health.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Rystlane are semi-permanent and results can last from 6-18 months.

Where can I use dermal fillers?

The popular injectable can be used in a number of different areas to help re-shape, define and add volume:

  • Nose to mouth lines
  • Mouth to chin lines
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Dermal filler for lips (border & body)
  • Nose reshaping (non-surgical rhinoplasty)
  • Tear Trough Rejuvenation
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Cheek
  • Backs of hands
  • Décolletage

Dermal filler facts…

  • Dermal fillers were first introduced in the 1800’s by an Austrian surgeon as a soft tissue filler for facial defects.
  • It’s not only popular with females but men too, with a 6% growth for male use in 2015.
  • In 2015 there were 2.4 million procedures, up 6 percent from 2014 and 274 percent since 2000 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The number of procedures has increased by a staggering 43 percent in women since 2000.

A few years ago, we would mention the word Botox and people would look in disbelief as if we were muttering a spell.  Aesthetic treatments were seen to treat only the wealthy and famous. We watched as celebrities continued to look effortlessly young, but not once did we consider the treatments ourselves. Fast forward a few years and the words “cosmetic procedures” is on everyone’s lips. So why has it changed? 

The Growth of Cosmetic Procedures

A recent report by ASDS (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery) saw that 70% of individuals surveyed are now looking for a cosmetic procedure. The online survey was taken by 7322 individuals all expressing their reasons as to what they thought about the treatments.

So why is it now so popular? 

A few reasons that have come to light from recent articles, surveys and reports such as the Nuffield Council on Bioethetics – Cosmetic Procedures: Ethical Issues are the following:

  • Self confidence
  • Celebrity influence
  • Physcological reasons
  • Media
  • Career reasons
  • Low cost
  • “Quick fixes”

Cosmetic procedures are also easy to reach. A quick google in your area and lists can appear of local practitioners all willing to make your vision a reality. A large part of the decision is also from the fact that cosmetic procedures in aesthetics are temporary. Results will last for an average of 3 months with the option to “top up” the treatment to maintain it’s effects.

7 in 10 are Considering a Cosmetic Procedure

Whatever the reason for your decision to consider treatment, you are not alone. Long gone are the days of this hushed topic. People now proudly show off their new features achieved with the power of the needle. Women are no longer swapping knitting patterns but practitioner details.

You are not alone in your consideration to have cosmetic procedures.

Here at Cosmetic Courses we focus on our patients. We teach our delegates how to perform treatments but also how to look after their patients. We guide them through their treatment and help them to make a decision. We work strongly by the belief that only the patient can decide what they want and encourage our delegates to listen and advise.

Top Tips for your Decision…

If you are thinking of getting a cosmetic procedure we ask you to think of the following in order to aid your decision:

  1. Why do I want this?
  2. What do I want to achieve?
  3. Have I researched this treatment?
  4. Am I prepared for the change?
