The University of Salford has partnered with the ICE Postgraduate Dental Institute and Hospital to introduce a new PG Cert in Non-surgical Facial Aesthetics.
The training programme is aimed towards doctors, dentists and nurses who want to obtain a Level 7 qualification in botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments.
Run by dental and aesthetic practitioner Dr Tracey Bell, the course aims to enhance students’ knowledge on facial aesthetic treatments, ensuring they can demonstrate practical and clinical understanding of procedures. According to Dr Bell, students will also learn about evidence-based treatment planning, patient communication, legal and ethical considerations and related human factor concepts.
She said, “I am delighted that the University of Salford has recognised the need for a university programme and, I believe, by providing an overview of these facial cosmetic procedures, it will lead the way in an educational structure that will become a necessary framework for practitioners like myself to achieve.”
The first students enrolled on the course last month and have access to products, patients and mentorship in Salford Quays.
