Botox Training

Why should you choose our course?

We are a recognised provider of aesthetic courses for medical professionals with over 18 years of experience in providing these courses for medics. All our courses include extensive injection time with patients, we do not use mannequins. The injection time is the most important part of any course. When you attend your course with us the majority of the time is dedicated hands-on practical. We provide all your patients for the practical injection workshop. This ensures a good range of indications for you to assess and treat.

The foundation course is the first choice for many medical professionals starting out in aesthetic medicine. Botox is a very effective treatment for the lines and wrinkles caused by muscle activity (dynamic wrinkles). This course will teach candidates how to assess the face and inject the three most requested treatments in aesthetic medicine.

What botulinum toxin products are used?

We will review the full range of botulinum toxins available in cosmetic medicine. Theses include Azzalure®, BOCOUTURE® and BOTOX®. For the practical injection session, the Bocouture® product will be used.


The injection technique that you will learn is applicable to other botulinum toxin products (dilutions and units are not interchangeable). Ultimately the choice is yours.

Will the course include injection time and do you provide the patients?

Yes, if you look at the outline you will spend the majority of the time injecting the patients provided by us. We believe the only true way to learn is to have extensive hands-on practical experience for each procedure. Our insurance covers you for your practical injection time. You are welcome to bring your own model or even have a treatment yourself.


Please inform us in advance as the model appointments will be scheduled in advance.

Botox information for a nurse or pharmacist who is a not a qualified prescriber

*Botulinum toxins are prescription-only medicines, as a result, they must be administered following prescribing guidelines. Consequently, nurses and pharmacists require the V300 qualification to provide a private prescription. Alternatively, they will need to work with a prescriber to practice on completion of their Botox training course.
