Harley Academy dermal filler training in London Liverpool Manchester

Why choose Harley Academy for dermal filler training?

Dermal filler training is changing. Harley Academy is the first training course in the UK to offer Ofqual-accredited Dermal Filler training according to the 2016 Government guidelines. Rather than providing a weekend course – which are now not considered best practice – we provide our students with much more:

Future-proof your career

Dermal Filler treatments have come under serious scrutiny over the last 12 months because of their risk to patient safety in under-qualified hands. Whilst they still remain a medical device (meaning no prescription is required to acquire or deliver the treatment), the 2015 Government cosmetic standards review recommend that practitioners acquire university-standard competencies before delivering these treatments.

Once our students are ready for the clinical setting, they can flexibly attend a clinical placement. During your clinical placement, you will observe 10 treatments of Dermal Filler followed by 10 supervised injections of your own.

Students will be learning with real patients with unique expectations and consultation requirements; ensuring Harley Academy graduates gain sufficient experience in clinical aesthetic practice.

We arrange an assessment once student have received a reference from their supervisor. This will include an OSCE, MCQs and a portfolio review.

We are not affiliated with any manufacturer therefore our students gain competencies with any Dermal Filler product, including Restylane®, Teosyal®, Emervel®, and Juvederm Ultra®.

Through offering an accredited University-standard course in Dermal Fillers, we are pushing forward regulation and helping to forge aesthetic medicine as its own specialty rather than an extension of the beauty industry.

Student Testimonial

I just wanted to thank you for the mentoring Harley Academy arranged for me in Liverpool. I learned so much from the session. Previously I was lacking in confidence, but Dr Vikram’s teaching style is so pleasant and non-threatening, it made it very easy for me to pick up some really valuable skills. 

In that one day, I made so much progress with my knowledge in facial aesthetics I cannot thank you enough. I will definitely be booking further mentoring sessions with you.
