How long are the courses?
Our courses vary depending on which one you choose to do. Generally, however, they run from 0845 until 1700 on either a Saturday or Sunday.
What do the courses cover?
We cover a vast amount of material during our courses including the background of the aesthetics industry, a detailed demonstration of facial anatomy, dermatology basics, how to prescribe and reconstitute products, indications, contraindications and pharmacology of products. We also cover how to take a full aesthetic history, the correct consent process, injecting techniques, management of complications and how to establish a successful aesthetics business.
You will be able to find more detail on the exact procedures covered in any given course under Training Courses > Our courses > Book Now.
Will I get to practice on live models?
Yes. Our expert trainers will supervise you to inject live models with both Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers on all of our courses. We ensure that our trainer: delegate ratio remains very low to give every candidate the opportunity to practice with both Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers under direct supervision.
What qualification will I receive on completion of the course?
Upon successfully completing the Foundation Course, you will receive 6 CPD points and a certificate demonstrating your competencies in injectable procedures using Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers. These competencies are approved by the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS), in accordance with the GMC, GDC and Health Education England guidelines.
If you complete the Level 7 Certification, you will be awarded this in accordance with Industry Qualifications.
Can I start injecting on clients as soon as I complete any of the courses?
Yes and we would encourage you to do so! We will explain how you can keep in touch if you have any questions when setting up your business- we are here to support you along the way.
Can I contact insurance providers and get advice on how to prescribe the products?
We will provide you with all of this information on the course including the direct telephone number that you need for various insurance providers. We will also take you through step-by-step prescribing with Healthcare Xchange and give you a direct email address for their department to set up your prescribing account.
Is there a group discount available?
Yes. We offer a 5% discount on 2 or more bookings. This can be redeemed through our bookings page.
Where is the course held?
The course is held at the Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB. The building is directly opposite Euston station- with excellent over and under ground links. We have a map location at the bottom of this page.
Do I need to bring anything with me on the day?
You won’t need to bring anything with you on the day- we will provide everything including the course book, pens to write with, lunch and refreshments.
How large are the supervised teaching groups?
We provide intimate supervised teaching groups of up to 4 delegates per model for optimal exposure and practice. Acquisition Aesthetics’ Courses are designed around the principles of ‘hands on’ teaching. Your supervisor will guide and support you whilst you inject and provide you with feedback throughout the session.
If I have already completed my Foundation and/ or Advanced course with another provider, can I still enrol on the Level 7 Certificate with Acquisition Aesthetics?
Yes of course. We even offer a discount off our Level 7 Certificate price if you have completed a Foundation Course in Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Please contact us via our web form for more details.
Do I have to use the aesthetic practitioner mentors from Acquisition Aesthetics to undertake the competencies for the Level 7 Certificate?
No. We would be happy for you to undertake your minimum number of procedures with a recognised mentor as long as he or she has more than 3 years of non- surgical injectables experience in Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers.
Where do I obtain a portfolio from in order to record my procedure log for the Level 7 Certificate?
If you enrol on the Level 7 Certificate with Acquisition Aesthetics, you will gain password- protected access to our online portfolio system where you will be able to store and log all of your procedures that will count towards your certificate.
After any course, what support will be offered?
Every candidate that successfully completes one of our courses will be provided with our unique after-course support package. We will provide you with a number of documents to help you get started, including consent forms, medical history forms, manufacturer information and a practical guide. We will provide you with help and support as you launch your aesthetics business and in the event that you encounter any complications. Finally, all delegates have the opportunity to return for a discounted refresher course or one- to- one private tuition to refresh and refine your skills and develop your confidence.
Can I contact Acquisition Aesthetics for a refresher course if I do not feel confident?
Yes. You can either use our bespoke one- to- one session or you can re-book onto one of our courses again. If you have previously completed a course with us, you will be entitled to 20% off the total cost of a new course.
Can I recommend a friend to be a model?
