Carla Hunter

"A truly excellent course in a superb location with very small class size and an opportunity for thorough hands on experience.

The course leader had a great approach to teaching, guiding me as a student through a refresher in facial anatomy, a quick yet comprehensive review of the pharmacology of Botulin toxin, and then onto very useful tips and tricks for my own practice.

I was initially quite apprehensive regarding dermal fillers, but I left with a new confidence and a desire to get started as soon as possible.

I couldn't recommend this course highly enough for anyone who wants to get started in this extremely exciting market; you will leave with the skills and confidence to set you apart from the rest of the field."
