The eyes are very much the focal point of our faces. Any irregularities in this area can quickly make you look tired and aged. Eye creams after eye creams promise to remove dark circles and brighten the eyes with hefty price tags and tiny bottles. Here we look at the non-surgical treatments available to banish those bags that actually work…

Common problems with the eye area:

  • Heavy eyes
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Deep under eye circles
  • Sunken eyes
  • Crow’s feet

The majority of these issues are caused by the thinning of your skin around the eye area due to ageing. The loss in elasticity and volume causes the area to look tired and lose its youthful glow.

Each of these problems can be easily treated with the correct combinations of Botox and dermal fillers. This can reduce the appearance of tired skin and brighten up your eyes, boosting your self-confidence.

Which treatment is right for me?

Heavy Eyes / Hooded Eyelids

You may have noticed that your brow has dropped causing your eyelid to rest heavily on your lash line. This can obstruct your vision and can result in you needing to prop the area up, particularly if you’re applying make-up such as eyeshadow. Many believe the only cure is a surgical blepharoplasty. In some cases this is true however there is a non-surgical option for those of you with minor hooding of the eyelid…

Treatment: Brow Lift 

Using Botox injections just above the eyebrow, your eyelid can be stretched out by relaxing the muscles. This minimises their hooded appearance. The treatment takes just 20-30 minutes to complete with results being noticed fully 10-14 days after the procedure. The effects from the Botox will last 12 weeks and after this it can be “topped up” with another appointment.

Deep under eye circles / sunken eyes

The skin around your eyes thins out over time which can cause your eyes to look darker. This sunken appearance is known as ‘bags under your eyes’ and is particularly apparent first thing in the morning. This is a very common problem and is one of the first signs of skin ageing.

Treatment: Tear Trough Rejuvenation

Tear Trough Rejuvenation uses dermal fillers injected just under the eye into the ‘tear trough’. Once the area under the eye has re-gained volume it produces a youthful, brightening effect. Treatment time is 30 minutes and full results can be seen after 10 days. This treatment can be re-administered after 12 weeks.

Treatment: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy otherwise known as PRP or the Vampire face lift can help to banish dark circles. The purpose of the treatment is to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin surface using the bodies own blood. The practitioner will re-inject your ‘platelet-rich-plasma’ into the problem area. This natural process promotes youthful skin under the eyes causing dark circles to lighten.

Patients can see full results from PRP 3-4 weeks after treatment.

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are the formation of wrinkles at the side of your eyes, replicating the image of a birds feet (hence the name!)

Crow’s feet normally appear from the movement of smiling. Although we love smiling, we hate that it makes us look older than we are so fortunately there is a very simple treatment to combat them.

Treatment: Botox 

By using Botox injections, practitioners can relax this area causing the wrinkles to fade and your muscles to relax. This means the next time you smile, laugh or squint the crow’s feet will have magically disappeared! Treatment time is 20-30 minutes, with results being visible after a week and the option to have the treatment again after 12 weeks.

Going under the knife can be scary to say the least. Signing up to have something permanently changed on our bodies is something we need to be 100% sure about. For those who aren’t quite sure whether plastic surgery is the right option but want to achieve results mirroring what they could on the operating table, there are a whole host of non-surgical treatments available.

Surgical procedures are normally identified by patients under going a general anesthetic and due to the invasive nature of these procedures recovery time can be considerable. Of course, surgical procedures will always have their place and not all treatments can be replaced by a non-surgical alternative. However with advances in technology we are starting to see a shift from these traditional surgical approaches to less invasive non-surgical techniques.

It is amazing what can be done with the power of a needle and a correctly trained aesthetic practitioner. In this article we take a look at 3 of the most common alternatives to traditional facial surgery:

  • Non-Surgical Facelift using Dermal Fillers
  • Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping
  • PDO Facial Thread Lifting

Non-Surgical Facelift

The Non-Surgical Facelift works by targeting your mid and lower face. With the use of dermal fillers, this quick treatment, coined the lunchtime facelift re-introduces volume into the cheek and jowl area. This in turn minimises the signs of ageing. This clever technique restores volume and lifts the face, giving excellent results.

This is a perfect treatment if you are wanting to restore that youthful glow perhaps before an event or to simply feel more confident within yourself. This treatment uses the Juvederm Vycross range of dermal fillers meaning results can last up to 18 months.

The best thing about the non-surgical facelift at Cosmetic Courses is that we can create a bespoke treatment plan specifically designed around your expectations. We can vary the treatment from a very subtle lift to a more obvious uplifting effect dependent on your desires.

Cosmetic Courses Cost: £145 per syringe

Surgical Facelift Cost (for comparison): £9,000

Treatment Time: 1 hour

Downtime: Patients can go back to normal day to day activities but are advised to not partake in any strenuous activity.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

We have seen an incredible increase in the demand for the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty, also known as the Non-Surgical Nose Job.

With a combination of dermal fillers and botulinum toxin, the nose can be contoured and reshaped to soften irregularities. For example if you have either a bump on the bridge of your nose, a flattened or high tip of the nose or even asymmetry then you may be suitable for this treatment.

Although a fantastic and affordable alternative to surgical rhinoplasty, some patients may find that the result they are after can only be achieved through the surgical route, therefore a consultation is normally necessary prior to treatment.

Cosmetic Courses Cost: £200

Surgical Rhinoplasty Cost: £4,500-£7000

Treatment Time: 15 minutes

Downtime: Patients can return back to work the same day, but are advised to stay clear of any strenuous activities. 

Before & After Photos of Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

PDO Thread Lifts

One of the newest treatments on offer here at Cosmetic Courses is the phenomenal PDO facial thread lifting. The results of this amazing treatment mimic a surgical facelift by using dissolvable threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are inserted into each side of the face with minimal incisions and then pulled upwards to achieve a tighter and more youthful appearance.

The PDO creates a reaction within the body which awakens our collagen, resulting in tighter and firmer skin.

Cosmetic Courses Cost: £500

Surgical Facelift Cost: £9,000

Treatment Time: 30-60 minutes 

Downtime: 2-4 weeks, patients can go back to normal day to day life. There may be slight bruising and care should be taken when handling the face.

Informed decisions make the best decisions and that’s where we come in. We inform and we educate. In this week’s blog we’re discussing the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers.

Research tells us there’s some confusion about the actual difference between these two popular non-surgical skin treatments. In this short blog we cover the key differences so you can make an informed decision on which treatment may offer you the best results.

First things first, lets discuss your face…

Let’s admit it, lines and wrinkles are inevitable. We all hate this fact but unfortunately your face is one of the first places to show these tell-tale signs of ageing.  But did you know that there are two very different reasons for these lines appearing? These are:

  1. Active movement
  2. Loss of volume

We know what you’re thinking: ‘I don’t care how they appear, just get rid of them!’

But we believe it’s important to understand the difference between the two, as the treatment for each one differs quite considerably.

Active Movement

Let’s start with active movement. This is pretty much what it says on the tin. Muscles in our face cause our face to move when we make different expressions. The movement of these muscles causes lines to appear which aren’t present when your face is at rest.

For example, look in the mirror and frown as if you are angry. Do you see vertical lines appear in between your eyebrows? If so, these are caused by the active movement of frowning and are known as ‘active lines’.

Now raise your eyebrows. Do you see horizontal lines appear across your forehead? Once again these are known as ‘active lines’ as they are caused by you actively moving your muscles.

Now let’s look at your lower face. Still looking in the mirror, begin to pout. Do you see small lines appear going outwards from your lips? These are known as peri-oral lines or ‘smoker’s lines’ and are caused by active movement.

So how would we treat these active lines?

Treatment for Active Lines

The most effective treatment for active lines is Botulinum Toxin Type A, also known as Botox. Botox is injected into the muscle that is causing the movement. By injecting Botox we can slightly weaken the muscle, which minimizes the movement and softens the associated lines on the face. It won’t stop all movement but it will certainly lessen it to achieve an overall natural appearance.

There is one exception for when active lines could be treated with dermal fillers. This is prolonged active movement which has led to static lines. By ‘static’ we mean those lines that are present when the face is at rest. If we make a repeated movement continuously over a number of years these lines become ingrained on your skin. Therefore Botox treatment would not be able to remove these static lines. In this case, they would need to be filled with an injectable product such as dermal fillers.

Loss of Volume

You may or may not know that the face is made up of lots of what are called ‘fat pads’. This is essentially the padding on our face which makes us appear youthful. As the ageing process takes hold, these fat pads begin to shrink and gravitate downwards. This results in less volume in the mid-face (your cheeks) and more volume lower down your face (your jowls). This causes the appearance of marionette lines and nasolabial folds to deepen.

We can liken this change to a simple triangle. When we’re young the larger end of the triangle is at the top with the tip at the bottom highlighting definition around the jaw. As we age, the triangle flips with less volume in the cheeks and more heaviness around the jowls.

The important difference here is that these lines are present when the face is at rest and are therefore known as static lines rather than active lines.

Treatment for Loss of Volume

These signs of ageing are very different to lines formed by active movement because they appear when the face is at rest. Therefore the recommended treatment is also completely different. In this case we recommend hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. The purpose of this treatment is to re-introduce the volume into certain areas such as thinning lips or loss of definition in the cheeks.

Dermal Fillers can also be used to lift the appearance of jowls; known as an 8 Point Facelift or Non-Surgical Facelift.

Let’s recap…

If the lines you want to minimize appear when you move your face but aren’t apparent when your face is at rest then the most likely treatment option will be Botox injections.

If your lines are present when your face is at rest then this will need to be treated with Dermal Fillers rather than Botox.

Active Lines = Botox

Static lines = Dermal Fillers

Which areas can be treated with Botox and Dermal Fillers?

botox and filler treatment areas

We hope this has helped you understand a little more about why we would use Botox or dermal fillers for different patients and given you an insight into the potential treatment options for your skin. In every case it is essential that you speak to a trained professional prior to treatment to determine your suitability. Always understand that each of us our made differently. Your friend may of had Botox to help her frown lines, but you may benefit from dermal fillers instead.

Advanced Botox treatments can be confusing. You are provided with an endless list of names that you don’t quite advanced botox treatments
understand. Just using the term “Botox please” is long gone. Now each procedure is surrounded by a name either resembling an animal or god like creature. Albeit some still carry easy names such as “Brow Lift” but it’s time to catch up with the terms so the next time you sit in your consultation chair you know exactly what you want!

Our advanced courses cover 10 main areas of Botox, from Nefertiti Lifts to Bunny Lines. We are going to take you through each area bit by bit leaving you confident in your next Botox decision:

1. Brow Lift

We will start if off easy. The purpose for this one is in the name. Tension in the brow bone and above causes it to furrow and drop, resulting in an obstructed view of the eyelid.  The Botox injection relaxes the muscles causing the brows to fall. In addition to this the injections also smooth out the area around the brow causing an all round refreshed and youthful glow.

Treatment time: 20 minutes
Results: full results 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 4-6 months

2. Bunny Lines

When you scrunch your nose up lines appear around the bridge. Bunny lines can also be prominent on some people when they smile, with lines forming in the same direction as laughter lines. The Botox injection relaxes the muscles issuing this reaction. Injected into the top of the nose this is a treatment that is regularly forgotten about and often a tell tale sign of those who have had Botox. They focus on just the forehead and mouth lines forgetting the natural lines formed in the middle of the face.

Treatment time: 15 minutes
Results: full results 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 3-6 months

3. Nasal Tip

One of our advanced Botox treatments is injections into the tip of the nose to prevent it from dipping. This is something that can be noticed when you smile. The injections will lift the tip of the nose up by relaxing the muscles that are pulling it down. Overall giving more definition to the nose.

Treatment time: 30 minutes
Results: full results 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 6 months

4. Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is caused when you smile and your upper lip becomes thin and lifted showing off your teeth and gums. This is due to an overactive muscle in the top lip causing it to pull back when over strenuous movement occurs in that area. The Botox injections are administrated in the nose to mouth lines, this channels a relaxant to that muscle. This results in less of your gum on show when you smile and you natural fuller lip appears back in place.

Treatment time: 15 minutes
Results: lip will start relaxing 3-4 days after treatment with full results 2 weeks after
Lasts: 4-6 months

5. Perioral Rhytides / Smoker’s lines

This is a gathering of thin vertical lines stemming from the lips which is an affect of ageing that can occur in anyone but more common in those with a history of smoking. Lips tend to lose volume as we age and cause the mouth to be surrounded with fine lines by a repetitive bunching of the muscles around the mouth. This is one of our advanced Botox treatments due to the precision needed in injecting around the lip to cause the muscle tension to relax.

Treatment time: 20 minutes
Results: 3-10 days
Lasts: 4-6 months

6. Downturned Mouth

As we age the skin can fall downwards on the corners of our mouth. This causes a “downturned mouth” which can resemble an upset expression when relaxed. This is because the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle has been over worked and is causing the corners of the mouth to drop down. By relaxing this muscle with Botox it will lift back up to its natural position. Some like to do this treatment with a combination of dermal fillers to increase volume in this area.

Treatment time: 30 minutes
Results: maximum results seen 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 4-6 months

7. Puckered Chin

As we age we start to lose collagen and elasticity around the face, causing certain features to drop and skin to become loose. As the mouth is a point of the face that is continuously working, a lot of the ageing can begin here. A puckered chin is when the chin easily forms large indents and lines when the mouth holds expression. This can be common in all ages but can progress as we age. Botox injections relax the muscles causing this effect on the face and can help to make the profile more defined.

Treatment time: 30 minutes
Results: maximum results seen 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 4-6 months

8. Masseter Muscle

At the other end of the spectrum there are people who feel their jawline is too defined and some females see this as masculine.

Overactive use of the teeth clenching together, i.e. someone who chews gums a lot tenses the muscles around the mouth and  jaw adding definition. Another of our advanced Botox treatments is injecting in this area to relax the jaw muscles giving the face a softer appearance.

Treatment time: 30 – 40 minutes
Results: 10-14 days after treatment
Lasts: 4-6 months

9. Playsmal Bands / Nefertiti Lift

Named after the Egyptian queen Nefertiti who was thought to have the perfect mandibular contour.  This treatment uses Botox to lift the skin around the jaw giving it more definition. There are many factors that contribute to the ageing of the neck and can result in an all round

aged appearance. By simply lifting up certain areas of the face we can bring back the youth lost and add more definition.

The platysmal muscle is a depressor complex constantly pulling downwards which can lead to the development of jowls or horizontal “necklace lines”. By using a combination of Botox injections into the platysmal bands with injections along and under the mandible horizontal rhytides will be reduced and improve the definition of the mandibular border.

Treatment time: 45 minutes
Results: 2 weeks after treatment
Lasts: 6 months

10. Hyperhidrosis / Excessive Sweating

Sweating is a natural occurrence in all of us. Whether it’s clammy hands or sweaty armpits, it happens to the best of us. Botox injections can be used to prevent sweat forming. Sweating can be embarrassing and some can find it more excessive than others, effecting daily life.

Botox injections into the armpit can temporarily stop this excessive sweating.

Treatment time: 45 minutes
Results: 7-14 days
Lasts: 6-9 months

Advanced Botox Treatments at Cosmetic Courses

If you are a newcomer to aesthetic treatments we normally recommend to start with basic upper face Botox, focusing on your frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. This combined with filler to fine lines around the mouth can immediately add a youthful glow to your complexion and skin.

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 treatment with us is for a fraction of the high street cost.

One of the first areas of our face to suffer from the ageing process is our cheeks. We lose that plumpness, which leaves us feeling and looking older than we should. The perfect treatment to re-introduce this volume and sculpt your cheekbones is hyaluronic acid cheek fillers.

Why do we lose facial volume as we age?

As you age you lose a considerable amount of facial subcutaneous fat which can result in a loss of volume and elasticity. This in turn highlights hollow cheekbones which can cause someone to appear gaunt and tired-looking.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a hyaluronic acid based natural substance. A substance that is found within every person’s body. As we inevitably begin the ageing process the amount of hyaluronic acid found in the skin begins to diminish – causing skin to look tired and lose its youthful glow. Dermal filler injections reintroduce the hyaluronic acid back in to your body. Dermal filler injections can be used in a variety of areas to add volume to the skin. A popular area being the cheeks.

Sometimes the cheeks can look sunken and the face profile doesn’t meet your desired taste. Fillers help you to regain a youthful curve to the cheeks and a strong facial contour. It restores the lost volume and encourages a gentle lifting effect by injecting filler into the desired areas.

Which celebrities have had dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a very popular non-surgical procedure in the showbiz world. The quick fixes are perfect for busy schedules. It provides an uplifting effect whilst being a less invasive treatment than traditional plastic surgery.

What to expect from your treatment?

First things first, you will discuss with one of our expert practitioners the desired lCheek Filler Diagramook you want to achieve from cheek augmentation using dermal fillers.

The dermal filler injections will be injected across both sides of the face while focusing on target areas.

The treatment will last about 30-45 minutes. You may experience slight swelling and redness afterwards but this will go down within a couple of days.

Are cheek fillers painful?

As with all treatments it is expected that you will experience some slight discomfort throughout the procedure. A numbing cream will be applied to help reduce any pain. This will also help with pain after the treatment.

Which products do you use for cheek fillers?

We use Juverderm products for our cheek filler treatments. This is a highly recognised brand producing fantastic results.

Are cheek fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers are not permanent lasting approximately 12 months. The areas treated can then be “topped up” after this with further treatments.

How much does it cost?

You would normally pay approximately £400 per syringe of filler for cheek augmentation in a high street clinic but with Cosmetic Courses this is offered at almost 1/3 of the price from £125 per syringe.

Why become a model for cheek filler treatment?

If you think that you may benefit from cheek fillers and are considering becoming a cosmetic model, there are a number of reasons why Cosmetic Courses may be the right choice for you:

You may have seen it splashed over the tabloids, uploaded onto social media or you may not even be aware of its existence. ‘What is dermaroller?’ We hear you ask. Read on to find out more about dermaroller treatment with Cosmetic Courses.

Dermaroller, also known as microneedling is the treatment to the stars and the beauty trend that everyone needs to know about. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks (the list goes on).

And the best bit? It’s a completely natural process which wakes up your collagen – the component of your skin that helps you to look healthy and fresh. 

What is Dermaroller? Your Questions Answered

The dermaroller device

Dermaroller Device - Cosmetic Courses A Dermaroller is a small hand-held device with a handle that leads up to a wheel covered in tiny needles of no longer than 1.5mm.

It’s appearance may look a little frightening but it’s these very needles that lead to the amazing results it can achieve for your skin.

How does dermaroller work?

It’s wheel is rolled over the skin causing pin pricks, tricking your skin into thinking its experienced an injury. The body is then alerted and sends collagen to the surface to repair the ‘damage’.

This influx of collagen begins to fix certain problems in that area;

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimising acne scarring
  • Refreshing the skin

What to expect from a dermaroller treatment?

Overall the treatment takes around an hour to perform. This includes the time allocated prior to your appointment where anaesthetic cream is applied to the face to numb the area which will greatly reduce any pain.

The dermaroller is then rolled over the skin causing slight pain and possible bleeding, neither to be concerned about. The quick and fast motions are over in no time and as the saying goes “no pain, no gain”.

On leaving your appointment your face will be slightly red but this will reduce relatively quickly and by the following day a majority of the redness should have disappeared.

When will I see results?

Results vary from patient to patient, some begin to notice the difference straight away, others a few weeks later. The average time is 2-6 weeks before you will start to see the maximum effects of the treatment. For specific skin concerns you may need a course of 3 treatments to see maximum results but this can be discussed with your aesthetic practitioner on the day of treatment.

Is it safe?

The procedure is completely natural with its sole purpose to wake up the collagen in your skin. The device itself is sterilized and no foreign substances are introduced into your skin during the procedure, making it one of the safest non-surgical treatments available.

Are dermaroller results permanent?

The procedure is repairing your skin, so results are effectively permanent. As skin ages we recommend to have further sessions of the treatment enabling your skin to be at its best.

At Cosmetic Courses we are continually trying to improve the services we provide to our models. In order to do this we regularly ask our models to complete a satisfaction survey. In our most recent survey we had some excellent feedback which we’d like to share with you. We would also just like to say a big thank you to everyone who filled out the survey; it really does help us evaluate the services we provide.

We had over 180 of our models fill out the survey with 70% having already come for treatment and 30% awaiting an appointment. Out of the 126 models who have already had treatment with us 105 of them rated our services as either a 9 or 10 out of 10, which is an excellent result! Please find below the feedback for a number of key categories:

  • Information provided on our non-surgical treatments
  • Treatment pricing
  • Booking an appointment
  • Results from the treatment
  • Overall customer service levels
  • Level of care from our aesthetic trainers

Information provided on our non-surgical treatments

At Cosmetic Courses we want to make sure that you understand the treatments available to you and make sure you pick a treatment that is suitable. Therefore we wanted to measure your thoughts on the information we provide on our website, via email and over the phone.

The results showed an incredible average of 9.19 out of 10 and 71.2% of responses rated the information received on treatments 10 out of 10.

Clear information if you have a query.”

“The quality of trainers is excellent. They explain everything and allow you as much time as you need. Very friendly reception staff as well. All very knowledgeable in their own field.”

We are constantly looking to improve the information given, in particular on the new treatments we introduce. As a result we have added more information to our website including FAQs for each treatment including aftercare and expected results. We will also be introducing short videos on each of our treatments so you can see what to expect on the day of your appointment.

We are now offering over the phone and face-to-face consultations prior to appointments to help you understand which treatments are best for you.

I like the free consultation clinics where practitioners make suggestions on where to have treatment (they suggested cheek fillers which I would never have chosen for myself and I loved it!!!)”

Treatment Pricing

One of the questions asked in the survey was ‘how fair do you think the pricing is?’ As the treatments are carried out by delegates who are training we offer much lower prices than a regular high street clinic, however we wanted to know whether you believe the pricing of the treatments we offer is fair.

The results from the survey showed that the average score was 8.09 out of 10, a brilliant result reflecting the value for money. When asked why they became models for Cosmetic Courses, 44% said it was because of the reduced price!

Here are some of the comments from our models:

 “It is made affordable for me to have the treatments that I would like”

“Great treatments at an affordable price”

I cannot afford to pay the full price, but as a model can get the same treatment from highly skilled professionals for less than a third of the normal cost.”

“I like the range of treatments available and the discounted prices models pay – for hyperhidrosis treatment especially, the savings here are amazing”

We agree with our models and believe that our prices are a fair reflection of the quality of the treatment and aftercare you receive.

Booking an Appointment

One of the aims of the survey was to discover how easy our models felt it was to book an appointment.

The results from our survey showed that out of 10 for the ease of booking an appointment, the average score was 8.46. Whilst this is a very high score, we would like to make sure that the process of booking an appointment is quick and simple for everyone.

One area that presented as needing improving is the availability of more advanced and varied treatments across our four locations.

This is something we are continually working towards and across the next year we hope to make our full range of treatments available at every training centre.

Results from the treatment

One of our main aims from the survey was to find our how satisfied our models are with the quality and the results of the treatment they have received at Cosmetic Courses.

We are very pleased to find that our models have rated the results of their treatment with a brilliant average of 8.51 out of 10.

When asked their favourite part of attending Cosmetic Courses our models explained:

“The overall improvement it made to my face was fabulous”

“The results have been amazing”

“The results firstly – the whole experience was a positive one. But appreciated how considerate the trainers were to my needs as well as the trainee’s needs.”

We currently offer a free of charge review 2-3 weeks post-treatment and will continue to offer this service. Remember if you ever have a problem with a treatment or would just like to ask a question then please don’t hesitate to contact the team who will be more than happy to assist.

Overall Customer Service Levels 

A core aim in Cosmetic Courses is to ensure the customer service we deliver is of a high standard. So it was important for us to include this in our survey to find out any improvements we can make.

We are proud to say that the results from the survey reflected our efforts to deliver great customer service with an average score of 9.05 out of 10. We also received many comments on the friendliness of our staff:

“Everyone is so lovely and welcoming. Everything is explained well. When you are feeling nervous about a procedure, they are there with reassurances and advice.”

“I like all of the service from start to finish!”

The reception team are lovely to talk to and were very helpful.”

“The customer service is fantastic “

Level of Care from our Aesthetic Trainers

We pride ourselves on the care delivered by our trainers and it is important to us that our models feel like they are being well looked after.

We are very pleased to say that the models that took part in the survey rated the care received from the trainers at an average of 9.3/10, and had plenty of lovely comments about our trainers:

The whole experience was a positive one. But I appreciated how considerate the trainers were to my needs as well as the trainee’s needs”

“The quality of trainers is excellent. They explain everything and allow you as much time as you need. Very friendly reception staff as well. All very knowledgeable in their own field”

The trainer is wonderful I want her every time I have a treatment”

We just want to say a big thank you to all of our models for providing this invaluable feedback and your continued support.

Cosmetic Courses is the UK’s largest training provider of medical aesthetic treatments. With the cosmetic industry booming, the demand for our training courses has never been so high. Because of this increased demand, we are always in need of new models to join the team.

What do we mean by ‘models’?

For  the past 15 years we have trained over 4500 medical professionals in a range of advanced skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatments. Through this, we require models who are happy to have these skin treatments in a training environment and the major benefit is you receive your treatments at greatly discounted prices. So if you don’t want to break your bank balance but still want a first class treatment, then becoming a model with Cosmetic Courses is a fantastic alternative.

One of our loyal models, Rebecca explains the major benefits of becoming a Cosmetic Courses model:

Like a large number of our models, Rebecca was recommended to us by a close friend. She also saw the financial benefits as a huge motivation to come to Cosmetic Courses over another skin clinic. She describes her treatments as excellent with very natural results. Our aim at Cosmetic Courses is to produce subtle enhancements that slowly rejuvenate your skin over time rather than completely change how you look. As supermodel Christie Brinkley says, “You still should look like you!”

Even though Rebecca has only been attending as a model for 6 months she has already had a couple of treatments with us, including:

  • Dermaroller (Skin Needling)
  • Upper Face Botox

“I was made to feel very comfortable, very professional. I’d definitely recommend it” – Rebecca

Modelling for Cosmetic Courses

We have a wide range of non-surgical skin  treatments available to our models including Dermal Fillers, Botox, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy and Microsclerotherapy. These are offered in our 4 training centres across the UK: Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire,  Alvechurch in South Birmingham, Harley Street in London and Bingley near Leeds.

If you are interested in registering to be a model please fill in our contact form and one of the team will be in touch to discuss upcoming appointments.
