During training you will learn these patterns along with injection techniques which you will practice, under supervision, on a live model giving you as realistic a ‘clinic’ experience as possible.

Filler treatment techniques will include Lip augmentation, nasolabial, marionettes and cheeks, using needle.

How many delegates will be on the course?

A maximum of 10 delegates will attend each Foundation Course with an average trainer ration of 1:3. This allows for maximum hands on practical experience under 1:1 supervision on live models.

How long is the course?

This is a 2 day course taking place over one weekend. Delegates must attend both days to complete the course.

Which products will be used?

Bocouture, is a Botulinum Toxin which helps to relax muscles, by initially blocking the nerve impulses. Bocouture is injected into the muscle area to relax muscles by preventing  constant contraction. This effect is reversible and temporary and requires further treatments to maintain its longevity, making it a safe option for patients who choose this medicine.

Revolax Fine, Deep and SubQ  is the UK’s number 1 dermal filler. Made of the highest purity of Hyaluronic Acid, the non-animal based crosslinked dermal filler is a completely natural substance that synchronises with skin tissue, in order to create a natural-looking result. Working to plump, refresh and rejuvenate, REVOLAX dermal fillers have been praised by many medical professionals for its unique technology and longevity.

  • Taking and assessing client’s medical history
