Botox® Treatments and Dermal Filler Training Courses for Nurses
Botox® and Dermal Fillers Training Courses for Nurses
Nursing professionals including midwives, nurse prescribers and non-prescribers, are eligible for Botox® training, and able to become highly skilled aesthetic practitioners in both botulinum toxins and dermal fillers.
The aesthetics industry faces increasing regulation after the Keogh Review (2013) and new HEE guidelines (2015; 2016). Employment opportunities in cosmetic clinics are increasingly going to nurses and other medical professionals. For nurses, this is good news: your career in aesthetics is protected against changes to the law around who can practice cosmetic procedures.
Harley Academy are the first in the UK to provide nurses with a Level 7 qualification in Botulinum Toxins and Dermal Fillers. Unlike others, this course is based specifically on HEE guidelines, and will allow you to meet the latest recommendations without needing to return to university to study a postgraduate degree.
Our medical training course is tailored to the skillset and needs of nurses who are entering, or already practicing in, the expanding field of aesthetic medicine.

Benefits of Training in Botox® and Dermal Fillers for Nurses
The return on investment in aesthetics training for nurses is probably even greater than you realise. Looking at the calculations:
Let’s say that you dedicate just one day each weekend in which you treat five patients for Botox® and fillers:
5 treatments of £500 = £2,500/week, or £10,000/month.
Hence you want to be able to demonstrate to new clients that you are trained to the highest standards with a postgraduate Level 7 qualification. You also want to retain those clients so that they come back. For this, high-quality training essential.
If you’ve been wanting more autonomy in your hours and decisions than you currently get in the NHS, aesthetics provides the ideal outlet for this.
Cosmetic nursing allows you to choose your own hours, and your own patients.
You can even practice aesthetics in a part-time capacity, whilst keeping your role in the NHS.
Aesthetics gives nurses the opportunity to gain more than just CPD points. Our foundation day will introduce you to new concepts and ways of looking at the face, as well as insights into a world many people know of, but few know much about.
Aesthetics training also gives you new clinical skills beyond injectables. The Harley Academy level 7 syllabus contains training in facial anatomy, ageing and health, and psychological assessment for issues such as Body Dysmorphic Disorder. These new skills add to a nurse’s repertoire, in a way that can be useful to their career development both inside and outside the NHS.
Know your patients
Cosmetic nurses have the opportunity to build solid relationship with their patients. Patients are seen one-to-one from consultation through procedure and follow up, and you can see your patients again every 3-6 months for repeat procedures. This means you can enjoy building and maintaining a professional rapport.
Unlike working in the NHS, cosmetic procedures are elective. This means that the high standard of care that you give is appreciated — and that means a lot of mutual satisfaction.

1:1 clinical mentoring
By shadowing and being supervised by an experienced aesthetic doctor or nurse, our mentoring scheme allows you to experience what it is really like working in a cosmetic clinic, and how you might build this as a career for yourself.
In 2016, the government released guidelines on qualification requirements for delivery of non-surgical procedures. Our injectables qualification has been designed to meet these requirements, so you won’t have to retrain when aesthetic medicine becomes regulated.
Level 7 Injectables Training
The newly formed JCCP and 2016 HEE guidelines mark the crest of a wave moving toward regulation of cosmetic medicine.
Harley Academy has built a Level 7 qualification based specifically on HEE guidelines, which allows doctors to meet the latest recommendations without needing to return to university to study a master’s degree.
