A new mentorship and training programme named Aesthetication is due to launch in early 2022 to help aesthetic doctors to advance their independent practice.
Established by aesthetic practitioners Dr Selena Langdon and Dr Paris Acharya, the programme is designed to build on the existing practical knowledge of trainees and guide them through a structured programme to develop aesthetic skills. The first intake to the programme will be focused on training doctors with an existing knowledge of aesthetic procedures, through a series of nine modules covering different advanced topics such as patient assessment, consultations, surgical skills, complications, injectable product selection, devices, skin health, business matters and suppliers.
The programme also allows graduates ongoing support through the alumni network and allow trainees to access career and business opportunities. Aesthetic clinic Berkshire Aesthetics will offer graduates opportunities to take up either employment or operate new sites which are being established.
Dr Langdon commented, “In developing my career,
it was a real challenge to take the disparate skills learnt in the various
short courses and apply these in a meaningful way which could do more for
patients beyond a one-off treatment. The programme is designed to help those
who have taken meaningful steps to establish themselves in aesthetics to
develop into well-rounded aesthetic practitioners and clinic owners.”
