Ace Preview: Train with The Elite in London

09 Mar 2018

Be mentored by leading aesthetic training providers in the UK at the new Elite Training Experience on April 27-28.

It is without a doubt that high-quality education is of upmost importance to medical aesthetic practitioners of today, with training being essential for professional development and revalidation.

As there are many training providers in the UK, and certainly throughout the world, often practitioners find it extremely difficult to choose which is best for them.

But, what if you had the opportunity to have a ‘taster’ session with a training provider before committing the time and money to their full training course? This is where the Elite Training Experience comes in. This year, at the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2018, some of the most renowned training providers and presenters in the UK will showcase their esteemed courses in three-hour CPD-verified sessions, at just a fraction of the usual price. Better still, delegates will receive 10% off a future training course with the provider following their taster session.


Friday April 27: 10am-1pm

Led by award-winning consultant plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon Mr Dalvi Humzah, Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training (DHAT) courses are structured to equip both the aesthetic practitioner and trainer to develop, enhance and refine their clinical practice.

The DHAT Elite Training Experience will include elements of the various DHAT courses, giving delegates a true taste of what they can hope to gain from booking the full training.

This unique session will share practical and interactive injectable demonstrations and provide top tips on how to enhance product knowledge and skills using cannulas, while also discussing how to address specific skin and facial areas. On top of this, delegates will also receive a 10% discount voucher for TSK Laboratory, Cosmetic Digital and other companies, to use at ACE following the session.

The multidisciplinary international expert faculty will include coaching from Mr Humzah, award-winning cosmetic and dermatology nurse prescriber Anna Baker, US dermatologist Dr Hema Sundaram and German-based general surgeon, Dr Wolfgang Redka-Swoboda. Founder and director of Cosmetic Digital Adam Hampson will also provide his expertise on how practitioners can further develop their business and enhance their position in a competitive market. Mr Humzah said, “DHAT is a multi-award-winning teaching course, and I am absolutely delighted to be able to put together a ‘taster training’ session to run alongside ACE. I have made sure that our three-hour session features the most elite trainers from not just the UK, but from across the world as I feel it is vital that today’s injectors are educated from many different international perspectives.”


Friday April 27: 2pm-5pm

Academy 102, led by renowned aesthetic practitioner and multi-award-winning London clinic owner Dr Tapan Patel, is a purpose built aesthetic training provider that is designed to set the bar at a new high for education. With the mantra ‘pursuit of excellence’, its methodology is to ensure that practitioners are fully educated in the latest techniques, product knowledge and complications management. At the Elite Training Experience, Dr Patel will provide an engaging and interactive training session that will give delegates an informed overview of a wide range of injectable procedures. Through live procedure demonstrations and interactive videos from Dr Patel’s new e-MASTR network of high-definition animated videos, delegates will learn expert injection techniques and improve their anatomy knowledge. Dr Patel said, “I believe that unlike many other medical disciplines, the aesthetic practitioner needs to be able to balance a strong scientific background with an eye for artistic beauty. Knowing who to treat, what to treat them with and how to do the treatment safely is the cornerstone of aesthetic practice. Those who attend my Elite Training session will learn all this, and more, to maximise their knowledge of how to provide safe and successful treatments.”


Saturday April 28: 10am-1pm

The second day of the Elite Training Experience will feature Medics Direct Training, presented by international speaker and distinguished aesthetic practitioner Dr Kate Goldie.

Dr Goldie will present a lively, dynamic session on the latest techniques in aesthetics at the Elite Training Experience. Dr Goldie will focus on aesthetic artistry – teaching the art of cheek and mid-face enhancements, lip sculpting, combining perioral treatments and the art of creating the perfect facial profile. After completion of the workshop, delegates will receive a complementary e-learning module with the highlights, technique videos and theory of the session. Dr Goldie said, “I regularly present at conferences and international trainings across the world so I can definitely bring new ideas to practitioners who want to enhance their treatment offerings. My session will include live demonstrations, techniques, facial analysis and evidence-based treatment approaches to boost your confidence, challenge your ideas and grow your practice!”
