If you are interested in a new career path into the world of non surgical cosmetic rejuvenation, you may have a number of questions regarding Botox and Filler training. In this article we explore some of the answers to these questions.
Do I need to be a medical professional to train in Botox and Fillers?
At present, in the UK, there is no legal requirement for you to be a medical professional in order to train in the administration of Botox and Fillers. Despite this, it is recommended to clients to use practitioners who have a medical background such as nurses, doctors and dentists. The main reason for this is that medical and healthcare professionals have a much deeper understanding of facial anatomy, the products, their contraindications and how to deal with any side effects or reactions.
One reputable company that offers Botox and Filler training is Dr Hennessy Academy. This is one of the leading academies in the North West, however it is important to note that they only offer training for medical professionals.
How long does Botox and Filler training take?
Training courses generally vary depending on the company offering the training. Typically, most beginners training sessions last a full day (around 6 hours) and involve a combination of methodology and practical training. The most effective courses should provide live models and close guided training sessions to ensure you have a full understanding of administering Botox and Fillers.
How much does it cost to train in administering Botox and Fillers?
Again, this is dependent on the academy you use. The average cost works out between £700-£1000 depending on the length of the course, the level of training etc. It is best to identify a renowned academy that is recognised in the industry. Like anything, sometimes paying the extra is better to ensure you get the best teaching which will allow you to become a successful clinician.
