With the industry growing at a rapid pace, there are now a number of training providers in the UK offering dermal filler courses.
All have slightly different approaches and course programmes, and with so much choice, it can be difficult knowing which one most suits your requirements.
To give you an idea of our approach, we thought we’d create a quick summary so you can get a feel for our dermal filler courses at a glance.
Who do we train?
While there are still no legal barriers to anyone learning to inject dermal fillers, at Cosmetic Courses we only train qualified medical professionals. That includes, but is not limited to:
- Trainee Surgeons
- Registered Nurses
We feel this is an important safeguard when it comes to injectable treatments. Only medical professionals have the necessary understanding of facial anatomy, as well as the knowledge and skills to recognise and deal with any complications that may arise.
What do our dermal filler courses cover?
All our dermal filler courses are combined with training in Botox. These two treatments are often used in tandem, so learning them together gives you a more nuanced understanding of how best to use them with your patients.
We offer two levels of training, depending on your level of experience.
a) Basic Botox and dermal filler training
If you’re new to the treatments, our Foundation level Botox and Dermal Fillers course gives you a thorough introduction to the products, as well as plenty of theory and practice in the techniques used for basic facial rejuvenation, corrective and enhancement treatments.
You’ll leave the one-day course able to offer:-
> Facial Rejuvenation
Smoothing frown lines and forehead lines; treating crows feet and squint lines (periorbital lines).
> Facial Corrective Treatments
Reducing lines around the mouth (perioral lines and oral commissures); softening lines running from base of the nose to the corner of mouth (nasolabial folds); treating frown and forehead lines; improving facial wrinkles.
> Facial Enhancement
Creating an enhanced natural lip border; producing a pout.
b) Advanced Botox and dermal filler training
If you’ve already completed basic training and are looking to learn more advanced techniques, our Advanced level Botox and Dermal Fillers course has more emphasis on practical hands-on experience.
By the end of this one-day course, you’ll be able to offer:-
> Advanced Dermal Filler Techniques
Combined filling (using different strengths of product to achieve optimum results); cheek augmentation; vermilion border enhancement; advanced peri-oral sculpting; cross hatching techniques; extended linear threading techniques.
> Advanced Botox Techniques
Cheek and jowl lifting; chemical brow lift; mental is treatments; treatment of platysmal bands; upper chest treatments; treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
