Getting Started in Aesthetics

Here are the three first steps you need to take to begin administering injectables as an aesthetic doctor:

  1. Enrol on practical training with a reputable provider. The very first step you’ll need to take is, at minimum, Foundation Training. This will give you the essential knowledge and skills for popular injectable treatments and allow you to gain the appropriate insurance to begin practicing. Above, we’ve listed courses that are relevant to aspiring aesthetic doctors.
  2. Gain your facial aesthetics insurance. Once you have completed your Foundation Training, you will be able to gain the appropriate insurance to begin practicing. This will allow you to practice alongside more advanced training so that you can begin earning back your investment in this new career.
  3. Start small and keep building. Medical aesthetics is a broad and innovative industry – it can be thrilling to imagine the new technologies you’ll bring into your practice, from devices like lasers to complex treatments like tear troughs. But doing too much, too soon, and not executing it to the best of your abilities, can have a negative effect on your reputation. Be sure to nail down the basics before exploring more advanced techniques.
