Advanced Certificate of Aesthetic Medicine
The Advanced Certificate of Aesthetic Medicine is designed to meet the needs of medical practitioners who are interested in enhancing their clinical knowledge in aesthetic principles and the safe practice of latest evidence-based aesthetic medicine procedures.
Topics covered include laser physics and laser safety, hair removal techniques, facial nerve blocks, management of vascular complications, use of botulinum toxin (including masseters, Nefertiti lift, bunny lines and gummy smile), dermal fillers for the cheeks, tear troughs, chin, jaw line and hand rejuvenation, selection of appropriate cosmeceuticals for various clinical conditions, marketing of the aesthetic services.
Ideal for practitioners who are considering working in the field, the course provides a new level of confidence and competence relevant to primary care, enabling you to integrate cosmetic services into your day-to-day work.
With Medicare rebates frozen for consultations and the cost of providing medical care increasing, incorporating aesthetic medical services to your practice will enhance your patients' overall experience and allow you to operate a more proﬁtable and ﬁnancially secure practice.
The latest trends in health and skin care result in an increased demand for skin repair and rejuvenation services - and skilled practitioners. Meeting your patients' aesthetic concerns and helping them to regain their healthy appearance and conﬁdence at their local GP's clinic will build long-term loyalty and add non-Medicare based revenue to your practice.
The two-day face-to-face course combines interactive lectures, live demonstrations, case discussions and practical sessions on pork skin and simulated models.
This course is the second stage of the three-part Professional Diploma of Aesthetic Medicine, quality-assured by Bond University.
