If you have already attended a foundation level course and have some experience delivering these treatments, and if you are ready to learn some intermediate/advanced techniques, then please see our Int/Advanced programme or give us a call on 0141 638 4098
Can I practise after my training?
Provided you reach the standard required at the end of the training course and the trainer is happy with your competence at the end of the course, you will be able to go out and start offering these treatments straight away. Remember we also provide you with ongoing support and mentoring so we are never far away and we always recommend attending further courses to develop your knowledge and clinical skills.
Do you provide mentoring and continued support?
We stay with you even after the course; you will have easy access to our trainers for on going advice and support. We also provide refresher training courses and masterclasses throughout the year.
What is the size of your training groups?
We restrict our numbers attending courses to ensure you get individual attention.
Can nurses prescribe Botulinum Toxin Type A?
We would suggest you read the guidelines issued by the NMC.
At present face to face consultation must be provided by a medically qualified person or a nurse prescriber. You may wish to work alongside a prescriber to begin with but we recommend in the long term you become a prescriber yourself and undertake the V300 prescriber course and we can give you details of the Universities where you can undertake these courses.
There is a wide range of treatments nurses can offer if you decide not to use Botox to start with, from skin peels to dermal fillers to laser treatments and so on and we can help you with training in all these areas.

We only use the best products to train with and we use the real products.

What does the new Healthcare Improvement Scotland law mean for me?
Regulation of independent clinics from April 2016
In April 2016, Healthcare Improvement Scotland started regulating independent clinics in Scotland.
Who is being regulated?
Independent clinics are defined in the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 as clinics that are not part of a hospital and from which a medical practitioner, dental practitioner, registered nurse, registered midwife or dental care professional (clinical dental technician, dental hygienist, dental nurse, dental technician, dental therapist, orthodontic therapist). provides a service, which is not part of the National Health Service. The term ‘service’ includes consultations, investigations and treatments.
This means that if you are offering botox and aesthetic treatment to patients outwith an NHS setting - you must register.
More information & a registration form can be found at
Who can attend?
For our Botox and dermal filler course you have to be a registered nurse, midwife, doctor, surgeon, dentist, dental therapist, or dental hygienist. We require valid up to date UK registration of your regulatory body such as GDC, GMC or NMC registration to accept you on our course, photo id on day of course and we may need further clarification of your previous training before being accepted on the course.
Do I require a Level 7 Qualification?
The Level 7 Qualification is not mandatory or a requirement to continue your aesthetic business at present. We do however strongly recommend you keep your training and CPD to ensure you stay up to date with the latest knowledge, treatments and clinical skills as well as maintaining high standards.
There are various training companies offering the Level 7 training - however there are also universities that offer both Masters and Post Graduate programmes in aesthetics and injectables, and we can provide you with information on universities offering these courses - call 0141 638 4098!
