Aesthetic medical professionals have voiced their concern following the launch of a facial dissection course designed to offer training to beauty therapists. Cosmetic Couture, a company that offers aesthetic training to beauty therapists, ran the two-day course in December, which aimed to raise the safety standards of those participating in aesthetic training and increase the anatomical knowledge of practitioners. An external anatomist who provides anatomy teaching through cadaver dissection performed the dissection. Following the release of Cosmetic Couture’s promotional video on YouTube, which has since been removed, aesthetic professionals voiced concerns with beauty therapists receiving training using a cadaver and subsequently offering injectable treatments.
