Are you a Dentist looking for the right Botox Courses? Our Botox Courses for Dentists have been tailored around the needs of medical professionals, helping you to enter the world of medical aesthetics and develop a successful business.

Why Dentists Should Train in Aesthetics & Botox

The lucrative industry of medical aesthetics is continually evolving, providing dentists with a valuable area to move or expand their services into. Botox and Dermal Fillers are often said to go hand in hand with dentistry, as professionals who already have training in oral and maxillofacial areas.

Botox Courses for Dentists has added benefits and value for both dentists and their patients. For example, Dermal Fillers can be used to enhance cosmetic dentistry work. Botox can also assist with non-cosmetic procedures by relaxing facial muscles and helping with symptoms experienced by those with Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. Botox treatments can usually be administered between 4 to 6 months apart, so they can even be incorporated into a patient’s routine check-up.

Transferable Skills

Dentists often make successful aesthetic practitioners thanks to their wide range of transferable skills. For example, you’ll already have an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy and injectables. Dentists are also used to working around the mouth and facial areas, so are familiar with many of the concepts covered, often giving you a head start. You may even have experience in cosmetic dentistry already and would like to receive a formal qualification or to develop your skills further.

The Benefits of Training in Aesthetics

Medical aesthetics, such as Botox training for dentists, is a highly rewarding field to move into. Professionals find numerous benefits of taking this path, including the control it gives them over their career and the increased contact time they can offer to patients. It often provides a solution for those struggling with their work-life balance, giving you greater flexibility over how and when you work.

The improved remuneration possibilities mean your earning potential will also be higher than when working in the NHS. You may even attract a new clientele to your clinic, as Botox and Dermal Filler treatments can give you the edge over your competitors.

Where to Start – What Botox Courses for Dentists We Offer

We have a selection of facial aesthetic courses for dentists. To start your journey, we’d recommend you begin with one of the following training routes.

Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training

This full-day Botox course for dentists introduces you to the world of Botox and Dermal Fillers, covering theoretical, practical and business basics.

Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine

Our Level 7 injectables course is an accredited qualification, providing comprehensive training in medical aesthetic techniques.

If you’re a nurse looking for the right Botox Courses for Nurses, why not complete your training with one of the UK’s longest-established course providers in medical aesthetics? Our Botox and Dermal Filler courses support you to develop your confidence and skills in an exciting, thriving industry.

Who Can Train?

Registered nurses and midwives are taking the leap and moving into medical aesthetics. Half of those who attend our Botox and Dermal Filler training programmes are nurses, and this is often due to the number of transferable skills you have to offer.

Non-prescribing nurses can also train in Botox, but you’ll require a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber to provide your patient with a face to face consultation before you can administer anything. Therefore, you may like to eventually consider completing a Non-Medical prescribing (V300) course after gaining some experience in medical aesthetics. Alternatively, you could also train in other non-prescription treatments, such as Dermal Fillers, chemical peels or PRP.

The Benefits of Training in Aesthetics & Botox for Nurses

As a growing industry, medical aesthetics provides registered nurses and midwives with an opportunity to not only improve their earning potential but gain a better work-life balance. The red tape of working in the NHS often leads to reduced patient contact time and a lack of flexible hours. Medical aesthetics is a rewarding field to work in because it gives nurses greater control over the way they work and the standards of care they can provide.

Where to Start – What Botox Courses for Nurses We Offer

When considering the right Botox course for nurses, we recommend starting with either of the following two training programmes:

Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training

One of the most popular courses for nurses to start with is our Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training. This is our entry-level course which provides the basic knowledge you’ll need to practice in these treatments. Once more experienced, we have over 20 other training courses to help you move into more advanced areas.

Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine

You may also like to consider our Level 7 Certificate in Injectables, of which the foundation course forms the first part. It’s an Ofqual-accredited qualification covering 277 hours of learning time for more comprehensive training in Botox and Dermal Fillers.

Why Choose Cosmetic Courses?

  • As the current largest and longest-serving Botox course provider in the UK, we offer some of the highest-quality training you’ll find.
  • Many of our hand-picked team of expert trainers are nurses themselves, so will tailor the training around your experience and needs.
  • We offer a variety of training opportunities, including practical, hands-on experience with live models in a clinical environment.
  • All of our courses are CPD certified, allowing you to easily gain the right insurance to practice.

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] 

Skincare, its a love hate relationship. We love the thought of it but we hate applying cream after cream trying to keep to a strict daily skincare regime. We are all quick to fill our shopping baskets fleur cosmetic courses trainerwith the latest high scoring products but do we really if they will work for us? We spoke to Cosmetic Courses queen of skin and lead skin rejuvenation trainer Fleur to find out her top tips and favourite go to’s when it comes to skincare.

  1. What is your morning skincare routine?

“My morning skincare routine can vary depending on winter and summer, it’s important to adapt your skincare to suit the weather conditions for optimal protection. First thing I’ll do is wash my face with NeoStrata Restore Face Wash, this gives my skin a fresh and clean base to

begin. After drying my face I will then pop on NeoStrata’s Intensive Eye Therapy, I LOVE this product as it has caffeine in it to help make me look awake as well as all the other goodies which helps with tired puffy eyes in the morning.

Next step in my morning skincare is to apply Redness Serum all over my face and then I finish off the routine with NeoStrata Sheer Hydration which includes the very important SPF!”

  1. What is your go to skincare saviour?

“My absolute go to skincare saviour has to be Gel Plus by NeoStrata which has a high percentage of AHA giving my skin a mini exfoliating peel and by the next day my skin look fresh and feels super smooth ready for make up”

  1. What do you wish you could tell your younger self regarding skincare?

“This is an obvious one for me as I’m sure you’ll all have your own advice for your younger selves! Mine is to use a daily SPF!! Back then I even used sun beds and smoked, not good!!”

  1. How do you treat a bad skin day?

“I treat a bad skin day by having a chemical peel with Microdermabraison. This helps to speed up clearing my breakout and penetrates deep into the skin to stop the cause of the bad skin day!”

  1. What are your favourite tricks for healthy skin?

” My advice for healthy skin is to be consistent with your skin care routine. We can all get a bit lazy with keeping up with our routines.  If my skin is looking pretty good, I’ll stop being so strict with my regime but then I kick myself as it starts to look dull, congested and a breakout begins! As long as I keep my routine up and exercise regularly my skin glows.”

  1. How do you prepare your skin for a big night?

“We recently attended the Aesthetic Awards and for this I had a few peels coming up to the event having my last one about 2 weeks before, this helped to clear my skin and leave it glowing. I also increased the strength and my use of retinol for at least 6 weeks before. And of course religiously kept to my daily skincare routine.”
