  • This course is perfect for those getting started in aesthetic medicine.

Your comprehensive hands-on training will be supervised by highly-skilled and experienced aesthetic trainers.  The training sessions run in groups of 4-8 students, ensuring your opportunity to practice is enhanced. We encourage you to receive treatment and/or bring along a model to assist you with your ongoing learning and follow up of treatment results. All treatments are performed on live cosmetic models and you will have plenty of opportunities to inject models on the course training days.
