Course Description

Kick-start a Rewarding New Medical Career

Aesthetics brings great rewards in terms of job satisfaction, combining human interactions with clinical and artistic skills. This Foundation Day is the safest course on the market, grounding you with best practices you’ll keep throughout the rest of your career.

Gain Certification to Practice

Your Harley Academy Foundation Day certificate will entitle you to gain insurance to practice, and also forms your first step in the Level 7 qualification in Injectables should you wish to join our community.

Learn from Experts

All Harley Academy trainers are hand-selected for their teaching style and ability as well as their clinical skills and real-world success in the field.

Course Structure

This one day course combines:


Teaching by experienced aesthetic doctors. Includes case studies, live demonstrations of injection techniques on patients, and detailed instruction on how to manage complications and practice safely.

Hands-on Practice

Instead of allowing you to inject a patient on your first day, we run small-group confidence-building sessions on professional mannequins, which you can inject as many times and you like. Group sizes of 1:4 allow time for individual feedback on your injection technique.


We allow plenty of time for all your questions to be answered, including your concerns about getting into aesthetics, and what the best next steps for your career will be.

After Completion

You have two options after Foundation Training at Harley Academy:

  • Start Practicing Independently: Your Foundation Certificate permits you to gain insurance to inject both botulinum toxins and dermal fillers. We do not recommend this route unless you have your own private mentor who can observe and improve your skills until you’re confident and proficient enough to meet the new Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) training requirements.
  • Level 7 course in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine: We recommend all practitioners achieve a Level 7, the new minimum recommended standard of training for injectables. This Foundation Training Day is step one of the nationally-recognised Level 7 qualification in Injectables.

Get your Foundation Day for free: If you are accepted onto this more advanced programme, you will be eligible for a limited time to receive the cost of your foundation training off the Level 7 fees.

Note for Non-Prescribers

Botulinum toxins are prescription-only. If you are a non-prescriber you can find a prescriber to work with who can provide clinical oversight. This will also mean you can practice safely with the prescription-only reversing agents that you require in order to manage the more serious complications that can occur from cosmetic injectables. Let us know if you require help with this.

What Will I Learn

Foundation training covers the basics of botulinum toxin and dermal filler interventions for facial aesthetic rejuvenation. By the end of the day, you will be able to deliver both botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments in the private setting.

The day will enable you to offer:

Pre-treatment care

Recognise indications for treatment with botulinum toxins (also known as botox) and dermal fillers, including Glabellar Lines, Crow’s Feet, Horizontal Forehead Lines, Nasolabial Folds, Lip Volume, Cheek Volume, and Marionette depressions. Undertake a thorough assessment of your patient, and keep good clinical records.

Deliver safe injections

Understand the relevant facial muscles and vascular anatomy for accurate, safe injections. You’ll also get to know the types of different of botulinum toxins and dermal fillers are available, and how to formulate and administer them.

Post-treatment care

Deliver appropriate post-injection advice for optimal results. Recognise complications for botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments and deliver appropriate management.

Medical education

You’ll be able to empower and educate your patients about cosmetic injectables using your new understanding of the basics of skin science, the processes of facial ageing, and the biochemistry and mode of action of botulinum toxins.
