Advanced Masterclasses In Injectables

Advanced Masterclasses In Injectables

As pioneers in aesthetic medicine training, we pride ourselves with continuing to raise the bar. This is why we have introduced our latest education product: Advanced Masterclasses in Injectables.

These intimate, interactive learning opportunities were devised by our founder, Dr Tristan Mehta.

Advanced Tear Trough Masterclass

Introducing Advanced Masterclasses

Dr Tristan developed the original Ofqual-regulated Level 7 qualification in injectables. This set the industry standard for safe, effective aesthetic medicine practice in the UK. Our Level 7 Diploma in Botox and Dermal Fillers continues to retain its best-in-class reputation today.

To support our ethos of “always learning”, he has crafted three Advanced Masterclasses in Injectables. These support further postgraduate education and career development in key areas.

• Advanced injectables.

• Complications.

• Tear trough filler.

Advanced Masterclasses – detailed below – offer new ways to learn, gain confidence and expand your skills as an injector. Each Masterclass lasts a full day and spaces for each are strictly limited. By keeping attendee numbers small, we facilitate a convenient, enhanced learning experience. We understand that time is a valuable commodity for practitioners, so this approach allows you to get the most from your investment.

“Explore the scope of advanced injectable treatments”

We spoke to Dr Tristan Mehta to learn how these new Advanced Masterclasses came about.

“Initially I wanted to create a new way to help practitioners explore the scope of advanced injectable treatments and techniques in facial aesthetics,” he told us.

“My colleagues and I are often approached by injectors wanting to shadow us to learn from our day-to-day clinical experiences. This led to the development of the Advanced Injectables Shadowing Masterclass.

“I wanted this particular Masterclass to provide interactive, experiential learning that equips attendees with valuable insights from experts. Observing a range of live treatments with a number of different patients and asking questions throughout allows you to focus on the in-depth information and insights being shared. From anatomy and treatment planning to product selection and injection techniques for advanced filler and toxin treatments, including tear troughs, temples, 5ml+ plans, masseter botox and non-surgical rhinoplasty.

“Removing the pressures of hands-on practical injecting allows you to really soak in as much as possible about more advanced aesthetic treatments. It can also really motivate you and improve your confidence – something injectors need to exude to put patients at ease.

“Ongoing training is vital for a safe and successful career in aesthetics and one area that can be neglected is developing our intuition. Whilst we all learn through our own experiences, shadowing seasoned aesthetics specialists exposes you to additional schools of thought and ways of working.”

Dr Tristan Mehta explained how this expanded into the current three-option roster: “The Shadowing Masterclass sold out within hours and the first sessions were so well-received that we devised two further additions. Based on feedback from our students, we developed the Advanced Tear Trough Masterclass – which includes eLearning and practical guided injecting – and the Advanced Complications Management Masterclass.”

“The aim – to have advanced aesthetics specialists share expertise and deliver enriched learning in an intimate setting – remains the same for each Masterclass. We’re excited to be offering this new approach to qualified practitioners looking to expand their practice. This type of expedited learning is targeted towards qualified injectors and provides them with invaluable insights for career development.”
