Pre-treatment care

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

Who Is This Course For

Essential requirements for joining this course:

  • A Level 6 (undergraduate) degree in medicine, nursing or dentistry
  • A valid GMC/NMC/GDC number with an active license to practice in the UK. Please note that we do not accept dental nurses or dental hygienists on any of our injectables or cosmetic dermatology courses including those with GDC numbers.
  • English as a first language, or English Language Testing System (IELTS) 7.0 in all components

International students may be accepted if an equivalent level of education can be demonstrated, and you are professionally registered. Please refer to our Entry Requirements Policy for details.

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.
