Frequently Asked Questions

Before Attending

During Training

After Completion

Who is suitable for training?

Yes, we are happy to tailor a course to an individual’s needs either within our existing courses or on a one-to-one basis. Please just let us know your requirements. All training is held in London and unfortunately we are not able to travel to other clinics for courses.

I am not a nurse prescriber, can I still complete the course?

As Botulinum Toxin is a prescription-only medicine, the Harley Street Institute only trains registered nurses that have completed their Independent Nurse Prescriber Course.

What do I need to bring on the course?

Each attendee will need to provide photo ID, such as a driving license or passport, and their GMC, GDC or NMC registration number.

Pens and paper will be provided on the day although you may wish to bring your own pad if you like to take lots of notes. It may be possible to take some before and after photos on the day so a camera or phone is useful but not essential.

There is no formal dress code so comfortable clothes are best.

Can we bring our own models?

We feel it is of great benefit for attendees to bring their own models when possible as it is helpful for them to be able to follow up their work. If you would like to discuss the suitability of potential models, please contact us. We are also happy to provide models and require a week’s notice before a course to arrange this. It is extremely helpful for us to have this information as soon as possible.

We prioritise practical teaching and every attendee will have numerous opportunities to inject under supervision. We believe that the best way to learn is through practise and we provide a safe environment to do so.

Will I receive a certificate following completion?

Individuals will receive attendance certificates following successful completion of the theory and practical sessions.

Will I be able to obtain insurance after attending these courses?

Our courses have been approved by major aesthetic insurers so you will be able to start practising as soon as you have contacted them and signed up.

We aim to provide you with the skills and confidence required to start or grow an aesthetic practise. If you have any specific questions or concerns our trainers can be contacted throughout the week via email or phone.

If you feel uncertain about any of the topics covered we will welcome you back for further training.

How soon can I get started?

We advise delegates on foundation courses to complete their insurance and start practising immediately whilst training and knowledge is still fresh. Most practitioners begin by treating family and friends to begin with if possible.

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.
