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.

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.

Today marks the 15th birthday of the ever-popular botulinum toxin brand: Botox. Brought into the UK market in 2002 by pharmaceutical giant Allergan, the non-invasive injectable has gone from strength to strength. In the US it’s reached total sales of $21.1 billion since its launch and has grown in demand by an outstanding 797%.

Botox is quite literally changing the face of the world. To celebrate these past 15 years we bust 15 of the most common myths surrounding Botox…

1. “You should only get Botox when you have wrinkles”

Preventative Botox is very much a thing. It has been made apparent and widely supported by aesthetic practitioners in the past couple of years. Younger patients in their 20s who see lines forming on their face when they make expressions such as scowling or squinting are sometimes advised to have Botox at a younger age to relax the muscles that are causing the expressions. By stopping the face repeating these face movements we see a reduction in the build up of deep static lines and therefore fewer treatments are needed in later life.

“Prevention is better than cure.” – Desiderius Erasmus

2. “If you stop having Botox, your wrinkles will be much worse”

This is not necessarily the case. Botox injections is a non-permanent treatment lasting from 3-5 months. After this time it will begin to breakdown and dissolve. By not “topping it up” the face will go back to how it was before, with wrinkles forming from the muscle not being relaxed. This doesn’t mean you will have worse wrinkles than before your treatment!

3. “Botox is just for wrinkles”

The development of Botox and it’s uses is outstanding. Every day our inboxes are full of new Botox treatments, from “Scrotox” to migraine use. The injections are to make the muscles relaxed, which in turn can help a variety of needs in the body. At Cosmetic Courses we offer Hyperhidrosis. This uses Botox to prevent sweating under the arms by stopping the signal from your brain telling your body to sweat excessively.

4. “Only women get Botox”

15 botox myths busted

Ever heard of “Brotox?” it’s the name the media has given to the male population getting Botox. It had to have a name due to the massive influx of male patients demanding this beloved treatment. We also recently uncovered “Protox”. The professional Botox taken up by lawyers and politicians alike to provide an “expressionless” face giving them an upper hand in their industry.

5. “Botox isn’t safe”

Approved in 1989 by the FDA (Food & Drug Administrative) and later approved for Cosmetic use in 2002. Botox has undergone intensive testing to be where it is today. Botox is slang for Botulinum Toxin Type A. Granted the word toxin is a bit scary to hear but the amount administered in a cosmetic procedure is so minuscule. Botox is a very safe treatment when performed by suitably qualified practitioners in a clinical environment and is enjoyed by millions of patients in the UK every year.

6. “Botox will leave my face frozen”

This is one of the most common myths we see and hear. It’s easy to search Botox and be greeted by a celebrity looking more like a doll than a human. More times then not this celebrity has not just had Botox  but a combination of various treatments to get to where they are. Botox does not leave your face frozen. Facial muscles are relaxed not completely stopped so the next time you squint for the sun or raise your eyebrows you will still be able to move but the movement will be significantly lessened.

7. “People will know I have had Botox”

15 botox myths busted

As with all procedures the results can be as intense as you want them to be with the guideline from a qualified practitioner. In the right clinic with the right practitioner you will leave looking a better version of yourself. Never a stranger glancing back in the mirror from too many treatments.

8. “Botox injections are painful”

The needle used to insert Botox is very fine and plenty compare it to the sensation of a tiny pinch. The treatment is also very quick only taking around 15 minutes to complete so any pain will be over in no time.

9. “Botox is permanent”

The effects of Botox last from 3-5 months. After this time it will begin to dissolve and disintegrate within the skin. “Top-ups” can be administered 12 weeks post-treatment to keep up with the desired look.

10. “Botox and filler are the same”

It’s easy to think these injections carry the same qualities, but this is wrong. To make it simpler to understand:

  • Botox is for dynamic lines, the lines that appear on your face when you pull expressions. The injections relax the muscle causing the lines to not appear when pulling these expressions.
  • Dermal fillers are for static lines, areas that are apparent when the face is still i.e. nose to mouth lines or mouth to chin lines. They are also used to re-introduce volume, something Botox does not achieve which is why we commonly use dermal fillers for lip augmentation and cheek re-volumisation.

11. “You don’t have to be medically qualified to inject Botox”

This is in fact true. However, Botox is a medical procedure and therefore we always recommend that if you are considering Botox you go to someone who is medically qualified and has completed the relevant aesthetic training. Although Botox is an extremely safe procedure if something were to go wrong, a medical practitioner would be able to quickly resolve the situation.

If you want to make sure your practitioner is medically qualified you can look online at the following sites:




12. “A face cream can do the same job as Botox”

It’s an easy marketing tool to say “just like Botox” or “better than Botox” on a face cream. The thought of just applying a cream instead of having an injection is comforting to some. While we do promote a good skin care routine to go alongside your procedures, we are also honest in the fact that no cream can do what Botox does which is temporarily relax your facial muscles. A combination of both a high quality skincare regime and Botox injections can provide fantastic results.

13. “Botox is expensive”

The average high street price for Botox is £350 for 3 areas. It’s tempting to look for the cheapest clinic around but be careful of low prices. Ask your practitioner:

  • Why is the price so much lower than your competitors?
  • Is the procedure in a clinical environment?
  • Are they suitably qualified?
  • Are they actually using Botox or another brand?

The only occasions when a lower price may be safe is in a training environment. If you are a model for an aesthetic training company the prices are normally a third cheaper than high street costs. But being a model doesn’t mean the quality of your treatment is compromised. As long as the training company has expert trainers, uses genuine Botox, treats you in a clinical environment and offers you aftercare and reviews following your treatment then you are likely to be receiving excellent value for money.

 14. “Botox is addictive”

There is no drug within the injections that is addictive to patients, so this cannot happen. The only thing “addictive” is the feeling of wanting to look young which with the right practitioner, they will monitor and never let you over do it.

15. “Botox is Botulism”

Botox is made from a purified protein taken from Botulinum Toxin. It does not carry botulism. Many medicines have been taken from toxins, the testing on these are extensive and have to pass many guidelines and regulations in order to be allowed for public use. The toxin side of Botox is incredibly low. Adminstered by a professional this procedure is safe and carries great results.

Now we have seen our fair share of odd cosmetic procedures. From “Bull Semen Hair Conditioner” to fish pedicures but even we had to hide a gasp at this new trend…

Snail facials

Picture of Snail Facial (Source The Guardian)

In the heart of Chiang Mai sits a salon, this salon only homes one treatment for its clients, snail facials.

Known (only until doing research were we made aware…) for their anti-aging benefits, the snails helix aspera muller glycoconjugates (we call it mucus) contains nutrients and antioxidants.

The Snail Facial Treatment…

The treatment involves placing snails on your skin. They are then left to roam around and are only nudged when they go off course.  The treatment lasts for 40 minutes and beauty-goers are told the results are gradual resulting in firmer and softer skin.

As they become accustomed to their new surface they leave behind a trail of mucus. This is something they do when they are stressed. Mixed into the skin, the mucus is said to heal wounds, scars and leave skin glowing.

Before we go any further, please do not go into your garden and stick a snail on your face expecting to look 10 years younger.

Snail facial farm

Luc Champeyroux, co-owner of the snail spa in Chiang Mai inside his snail farm.

These snails are “special snails”. Kept on an organic farm within the clinic and fed only the finest chemical free fruit and veg. They are then handpicked for their starring  moment.

While the treatment itself has only appeared within the last few years. The multi use of snails have been apparent since ancient Greece. With remedies made up to cure skin infections. The french have also developed numerous creams and lotions from these slimy friends in order to achieve a brighter glow, or shall we say “Escarglow”.

The trends stems further than Thailand with Japan, Russia, China and our very own London opening up their own Snail Spas to name a few.

We look forward to seeing how far this treatment progresses. In the meantime, I think we’ll stick to our scientifically proven Neostrata range of skincare products!

Alternative treatments to get that glow

If you’re looking for that Summer glow, but aren’t brave enough to try the Snail facial then we have some great alternatives here at Cosmetic Courses:

  • Microdermabrasion – a deep exfoliating treatment to clear out pores
  • Facial skin peels – a rejuvenating treatment that removes the top layer of dry skin
  • Platelet rich plasma therapy – an intensive treatment that’s completely natural stimulating collagen production

For more information on these treatments please visit our model page. As a model at Cosmetic Courses you have access to the latest skin treatments and products, with the top 300 aesthetic practitioners in the UK but 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.

celebrity fillers

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:

Directory of Nottingham Beauty SalonsNottingham

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 banne showing, Male trends

Independent Pharmacist Shailesh Patel chats about the increase in cosmetic procedures in men over the past year.

The male market has been steadily growing over the years as male consumers increasingly seek out treatments to support their lifestyle choices.

Although a small segment of the aesthetic market, recent data from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) has shown Cosmetic Courses; picture showing close up of man with facial markingsthat male clients made up 9% of the total number of those undergoing cosmetic surgery operations in the UK. These numbers have nearly doubled over the past decade (from 2,440 procedures in 2005 to 4,614 in 2015). However, treatments for men tend to be less invasive than for female clients.

This trend could be driven by the subgroup of the millennials known as young urban males  (Yummies). These individuals tend to focus more on personal grooming and health than other age groups. This age group tends to marry later, meaning that they can invest in themselves and their appearance for longer than other age groups.

It is also important to remember that men are unique both physiologically and behaviourally. Having an in-depth knowledge of the male anatomy and suitable training is important to meet the needs of male clients 3.

You should have a separate marketing strategy to target males. Options include; advertising to men through your female clients (husbands, boyfriends, sons, etc.), having specific areas for male clients in your clinic and sections on your website and social media activities focusing on male clients.

Cosmetic Courses have also seen an increase in enquiries for male models. By having a diverse range of sexes, this gives our delegates the best experience in understanding the differences between the sexes, and the techniques that would work best when treating male and female faces.
