Aesthetic medicine courses treatment demonstrations at Harley Academy


As medical aesthetics is a rapidly evolving field, we don't recommend specific textbooks as these tend become outdated quickly

You can, however, try: The Face: Pictorial Atlas of Clinical Anatomy, 2nd Edition. Ralf J. Radlanski; Karl H. Wesker

We recommend using journals to stay up-to-date with the latest research. Libraries such as PubMed and journals such as the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery are great sources

Comma, the online Community for Medical Aesthetics, is a useful tool to stay on top of industry news and studies. This is also a great place to share your own textbook recommendations and ask other practitioners around the world for theirs

Taking before and after aesthetics treatment photos


You'll need your aesthetics clinic to abide by a few requirements. A good place to start navigating this is the CPSA Clinical and Practice Standards document

Bear in mind that, at this time, thread lifts, PRP and hyperhidrosis treatments are CQC-regulated activities for medical professionals

There's more helpful advice on emergency protocols for aesthetic practitioners in our dedicated article on the subject
