Foundation Botox & Dermal Filler Courses

Programme Objectives and Outline

A Mentorship based training on cosmetic courses

The Aesthetic Mentorship is a 1-day, combined foundation training programme in Botox and Dermal Fillers courses. It remains our most popular training programme and serves as a good starting point for healthcare professionals seeking to establish a career in Facial Aesthetics or those looking to apply their new-found knowledge and skills into an existing medical/dental clinic.

The course design is to cover the following:

Introduction to Botulinum Toxin (Botox / Azzalure):

  • History, Pharmacology & Mechanism of Action of Botox and Dermal Fillers
  • Concepts in Medicine and Cosmetic Practice
  • Indications and Contraindications
  • Storage and Reconstitution
  • Aftercare
  • Complications and Management

Consultation, Assessment & Treatment Planning:

  • Managing Client Expectations & Patient Selection
  • Holistic / Multidisciplinary Plan for Anti-Aging
  • Anatomy, Facial Mapping & Wrinkle Assessment
  • Post-Operative Instructions & Aftercare

Botox Injection Techniques:

  • Glabella
  • Forehead
  • Crows Feet
  • Eye Brow Lift

Dermal Filler Injection Techniques:

  • Lip Filler Training – hydration, volume increase & contouring
  • Naso-labial folds – reduce lines running from the base of the nose to corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines – reduce lines and restore volume surrounding the peri-oral region
  • Facial Lines & Wrinkles

The aim of the foundation course in botox and dermal fillers is to develop a technique for injection skills on the commonly requested areas. Competence achieved here will be the foundation for acquiring further skills, and hence we must focus on fundamental skills you require to be a safe practitioner.

Business Implications:

  • Setting up clinics
  • Pricing strategy & Marketing Guidelines
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Insurance
  • Consent Forms
  • Record Keeping

Our goal at Harley Street Institute is to deliver the highest quality training in Botox & Dermal Fillers using the safest and most up-to-date techniques via evidence-based practice. Unlike conventional courses, our Botox training is carried out on a 1-1 basis and at most, 1-2. This enables us to provide you with a training programme tailored to your needs, with more time and emphasis on the hands-on practical sessions.

For us to focus your training on the practical hands-on session, you will be sent self-directed online reading materials before your training day. The first part of your training day will cover an intensive level of theory; anatomy, consultation and examination, anaesthesia, facial mapping and techniques and learning how to manage complications.

Your comprehensive hands-on training will follow, which will be supervised by one of our expert aesthetic trainers. Much time and emphasis are placed on this part of the training session to ensure that you leave us feeling confident to practice independently. Each model that you see, you will be observed, critiqued and actively taught during the entire consultation and patient treatment procedure. You will be required to complete a Case Report form, which not only documents what you did but also encourages reflection on the experience.

On successful completion of your training, we provide a CPD certificate of attendance and complimentary support pack. We will train you not only as a successful aesthetic practitioner but also as a business professional. After each course, you will be eligible to sign up for our free follow-up mentoring service.

  • Surgeons and Trainee surgeons

Really enjoyed the course and we had an excellent teacher, really looking forward to beginning in the world of aesthetics and when I'm able I will definitely be back for the advanced course.

Carla Hunter

Absolutely brilliant. Loved small class size and the fact it wasn’t rushed. V approachable trainer, felt confident to ask questions. Brilliant teacher. Can’t wait to come back and observe for a day.

Dr. Niall Graham

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.

The training was fantastic, I have practiced the skills I learned on the day and have had good results! It was also great to be able to stay and observe Dr. Haq with his clients. I will definitely be recommending the course to my colleagues! Thank you for being so welcoming and helpful.

Having completed my full aesthetics fellowship with the Harley street institute, I feel confident and able to provide my patients with the best of care with the most up to date methods in a safe and controlled format. This bespoke program allowed me to grow with a speed I was comfortable with, and most importantly, made me feel safe to perform. I had the invaluable opportunity to observe, learn and apply in a direct manner under the careful supervision of highly experienced aestheticians on a one on one basis. This is the perfect program to improve and learn new skills to kickstart your career in the aesthetics world.

Dr. Rahul Shah

I have been on the fellowship programme with the Harley Street Institute for the past 6 months under the mentorship of Dr Haq. The programme has been extremely invaluable in augmenting my confidence, skills and knowledge in aesthetics medicine. Dr Haq has made the process thoroughly enjoyable by explaining things in an easily digestible manner through a variety of teaching methods including seminars, live demonstrations and most valuable of all, observed practice on clients. I feel thoroughly supported by the whole team at Harley Street Institute and can approach them with any questions I may have.
