Aesthetic training provider Harley Academy has launched a new course called the Foundation Programme for Botox and Dermal Fillers.
It is designed for medical professionals who are looking to take the first step in aesthetics using botulinum toxin and dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation, the company explains.
The programme follows a three-step process that includes an eLearning platform designed to get practitioners ready for the course, an eight-hour foundation day led by aesthetic doctors, featuring case studies, live demonstrations, practical experience on silicone mannequins and details on how to manage complications.
The last step is a 60-minute one-on-one session with a mentor that will focus on a practitioner’s first treatment. Harley Academy explains that practitioners will be guided through consultation and treatment of the patient and advised on how to carry out follow-up.
Dr Tristan Mehta, founder and CEO of Harley Academy commented, “We have listened to student feedback and added the opportunity to treat a practitioner’s first patient, in clinic with us, as part of the Foundation Programme. This is a unique supervised opportunity to remove the risk from the first encounter and learn in a real clinic environment.”
