Foundation Course in Botulinum Toxin Type A & Hyaluronic Acid (Dermal Filler)

This online Foundation course in the use of Botulinum Toxin Type A & Hyaluronic Acid (Dermal Filler) has been designed for medical professionals wishing to become certified to practice these treatments as an extension of their current practice. In the United Kingdom, currently certification requires some face-to-face training in addition to any online learning. For more information on training opportunities in the UK, visit www.visage-aesthetics.com/academy.html

The course also serves as part of the Visage Academy e-Diploma (when combined with the Advanced course) AND part of the 4-day Diploma course for non-medics.

It has been written by Dr Michael David Aicken, a medical Doctor based in the United Kingdom who has been practicing Aesthetics Injectables for 9 years and training other professionals for 7 years. Dr Aicken has also completed an MPhil at Queen’s University Belfast where he developed expertise in the development of medical education assessment methods.

e-Foundation Product Description

This online Foundation Course is aimed at practicing Aesthetic Technicians who are looking to refresh or revalidate courses already undertaken either with Visage Academy or elsewhere.  It covers all the essential basic techniques required for starting out in Aesthetics safely, covering the background to products, administration and good Aesthetic practices.  The course has been developed by Dr Michael Aicken who has been practicing and teaching the administration of Botulinum and Dermal Filler for 8 years, in conjunction with the most up to date clinical guidelines and research.

Modules include:

  • A General Introduction to Botox & Fillers
  • Basic ‘Botox’
  • A more indepth look at Botulinum Toxin Type A
  • Complication of Botulinum Toxin Type A
  • Anaesthetics
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Dermal Filler – An Introduction
  • Dermal Filler – Practicalnciples
  • Lips
  • Filler Complications and Side Effects

This course can be taken as a standalone course for £240 or as a package with our advanced course.  The advanced course will expand further on basic botulinum and filler administration covering techniques not taught on foundation courses such as the increasingly popular cheek augmentation and also deals with the treatment and correction of many of the side effects from therapies which can be costly to companies if wrongly managed.  The combination of Advanced and Foundation courses is £420, a saving of over 10% over both courses separately. Each course has online support and follow up via email and we are interactive with trainees when they have questions about course material.

If purchasing for several members of a Business group discount can be arranged please contact [email protected] for more information.  We can offer managers updates on employees progress through modules, marks and as always provide online support to answer questions regarding course material.

With revalidation coming in for professionals doing Aesthetics in 2018 we are also including access to our e-portfolio system with these courses and both courses can be used as part of self-verified CPD points. Trainees undertaking either course will receive a certificate of completion.  Those combining the foundation and advanced course will receive an e-Diploma from Visage Academy in the administration and the use of Botulinum Toxin Type A & Hyaluronic Acid Gel for Aesthetics.

  1. Leading The Way In Cosmetic Training : 5 star plus

    5

    All tutorials are Platinum level, course delivery, and format is excellent , in comparison to the array of training options available on the market today.

    5 star plus, I Very Highly recommended The Visage Academy.

    Doctor Mike Aicken, Is a leading Cosmetic Doctor, with a genuine passion for facial Cosmetics, and the continued support and success of his students.

    Course delivery, and support given to students is second to none , outstanding course format, quick response in relation to questions , and continuous support provided.

    In comparison, to the array of training options available to the consumer on the facial aesthetics market today.

    I highly recommend Dr Mike Aicken.

    After a previously, bad experience with a different training company, who wasted 12 months of my time and held me back , I feel very lucky and blessed to have Dr Aicken as my tutor.

    I personally have high expectations,and seek high end training, from a doctor who posses, a continued and updated knowledge and a clear passion, for training and delivery, along with the continued support and future success of his students , during training and thereafter , whilst establishing their business’s onto the aesthetics market.

    A doctor with a genuine passion for ensuring his students are confidant, and mentally equipped and prepared with the skills ,to provide a safe and high standard of high quality work.

    To ensure medical students, progress onwards to solidify a reputable and prosperous future,as a facial aesthetics medical practitioner.

    Visage Academy I highly recommend.

  2. Premium Aesthetic training

    5

    I cannot recommend enough this brilliant course. Dr Mike Aichen is a very experienced Aesthetic doctor and a brilliant trainer. He genuinely cares about his students and gives valid advise to each and everyone. The videos and slides are very clear and detailed and informative. I have thoroughly enjoyed the he online be modules as well as the face to face training days which enabled me to have practical training on models in adminstering Botox and dermal filler . I highly recommend Visage Academy.

  3. Refresher course of foundation training

    5

    I undertook the practical course with Michael 2.5years ago and have been carrying out Botox and fillers since. It was very good going back over the original course material for revision purposes and also honing my skill set.
    Very convenient being able to do this at home/work in my own time as opposed to booking designated time off to attend a specific course.

  4. 5

    Excellent course with easy to understand principles. Great foundation for Botox and fillers covering the essentials with comprehensive teaching on complications.

  5. Foundation course in botulinum toxin Type A and hyaluronic acid (dermal filler)

    5

    Absolutely superb, fully comprehensive with excellent use of slides, practical demonstrations and conversational styled lecture format

  6. A very good start

    5

    A good start to Botulinum toxins and dermal fillers, the handouts and lectures were succinct and well focused making it easier to understand and retain

  7. online foundation botox&filler course

    5

    Having went to a hands on course earlier in the year this course has actually been much more indepth with better notes to refer back to.

  8. BOTOX and dermal fillers

    5

    fantastic online course with really useful and well explained information. very helpful to be able to pause and re-watch tutorial videos.

  9. Foundation Course

    5

    Excellent.
    Very practical for everyday use and prep for the evening session.
    The use of video, text and slides was great.
    Rare complications also covered which will be a confidence booster starting out.

  10. Good foundation

    5

    Well explained and demonstrated videos as well as slides to have good foundation towards advance courses.

  11. Excellent

    5

    Really enjoyed the content
    Written with depth and clarity
    Especially found the videos helpful

  12. 5

    Mike is easy to listen to and explains things in simple terms, in a relaxed manner. I particularly liked the section on how to pass the practical assessments, because I can go to London for the practical training with confidence. The video training is an excellent idea for busy clinic owners like me because I can log in at my leisure & recap if I want to. I would suggest updating some of the quiz’s after each training video, with extra questions and remove some of the very simple multiple choice answers. I’m really looking forward to the practical course in London and I do hope I get to practice on several models because while the theory is important I feel practical experience is the absolute key to confidence with injectables. I have worked as an assistant to my visiting dermatologist for 9 years whom does injectable dermal fillers and Botox and whilst there is merit in me watching her do Botox & dermal fillers, nothing beats doing it yourself. The ultimate review of this course will be after the practical session finishes in London, so the more models I practice on the more confident I’ll be because I don’t need to go to London to watch injectables as I get this experience in my own clinic regularly. Mike I know a lot of hard work has gone into your training course, as its well thought out and put together. I selected your course because it was highly recommended to me and because I prefer to be trained by a doctor. There are other dermal filler & Botox courses in the UK run by beauty therapists & whilst I’m sure they can deliver the course well in pratcical terms I doubt very much the theory could possibly be as detailed as yours. keep up the good work & keep writing online courses.

  13. Good

    3

    Yeah good course , prefer face to face as you can ask questions see materials would be a welcome addition after teaching but would prefer tradition course. Makes the evening session very expensive would agree if it reduced price but it doesn’t !!
    Some errors loading website too which is annoying.

  14. Very Logical flow and informative

    5

    I appreciated the logical flow of information and practical visual sessions. Intricate detail presented in a straightforward manner with both verbal and visual structure. Thank You

  15. The best type of home learning.

    5

    Watching the videos and being able to stop/play on my own accord has made home learning super easy as I have been able to do it in my own time and go over things as and when I have needed.

    Thank you!!

  39. Very Precised and comprehensive online course

    5

    Very good online course delivered in a calculated manner. Recommended readings are really helpful and must be read in order to elaborate knowledge.
    Suggestion: Bit more detail in facial anatomy is required specially in relation to facial arteries.
