Benefits of Training in Botox and Dermal Fillers For Pharmacists
1. Earn More
The return on investment in aesthetics training for pharmacists 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.
2. Be Flexible
Practising in cosmetic medicine allows you to work flexible hours, so you can decide when you wish to work. For pharmacists, training and then working in aesthetics comes a welcome break from some jobs which require regular full time hours, and it’s even possible to practice on a part time basis whilst keeping your regular role as a pharmacist.
3. Develop Your Career
Aesthetics training also gives you new clinical skills beyond injectables. Our level 7 learning objectives contain training in facial anatomy, ageing and health, and psychological assessment for issues such as Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
These will more often than not, be new and exciting topics to add to the varied and extremely capable skill set pharmacists entering aesthetics training will undoubtedly already possess.
4. Build Relationships
Cosmetic practitioners have the opportunity to build solid relationships with their patients through regular treatments and practice. After an initial consultation, you’re able to follow up with patients for repeat procedures every 3-6 months, enabling you to build and maintain a strong professional relationship through years of practice.
5. Have Your Work Valued
Cosmetic procedures are elective, and all of our practitioners on our level 7 qualification have invested significantly in their aesthetic education and training. Training in aesthetics as a pharmacist gives you a fantastic opportunity to have your expertly performed procedures appreciated, leading to great overall job satisfaction.
Reasons to train with Harley Academy
1.We will support you
We support our graduates throughout the course and beyond. We are always on hand to provide advice on procedures, products, and careers. Our pharmacist graduates who have undertaken their cosmetic training will be the best placed in the aesthetics industry.
2. Our qualification is fully accredited

4. We offer clinical experience
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.

Compared to annual university fees, our qualification is the best value option available to pharmacists wishing to train to the new, postgraduate standard expected in the aesthetics specialty.
