When you tell your friends and family that you’ve booked a space on a dermal filler training course, you might be met with strange looks that sort of say ‘you did what?’.
The truth is that not much is really known about the industry. Let's have a look at the 7 secrets about dermal filler training that many people might not know.
1. Dermal filler training is massively popular
The first secret about dermal filler training is that the courses are more popular and more in demand than many people think. We’re at a time now where aesthetics is moving from an emerging field to a fully fledged area of medicine, and it’s growing rapidly.
2. Dermal filler training has roots in other areas of health care.
A big part of becoming a successful aesthetic practitioner is understanding not only the technical side of the procedures you carry out, but also the importance of patient care. Many of the core aspects of dermal filler training have solid roots in general healthcare.
3. Trainees practice on real models
Probably one of the biggest secrets of dermal filler training is that it’s not just about gaining theoretical knowledge but practical knowledge as well. What many don’t know is that trainees are given opportunities to practice on models to improve their skills.
4. There's more than expected.
Although a big part of dermal filler training focuses on the use and the administration of dermal fillers, the courses themselves actually provide a pretty comprehensive overview of many associated and complementary aspects, like injection technique for example.
5. The right training can lead to a recognized qualification.
Many people don’t know that the right aesthetic medicine course can actually lead to a recognized Level 7 Certificate in Injectables. Level 7 training in dermal fillers and Botox has been designed to comply with both HEE & GMC guidelines for aesthetic medicine.
6. There are lots of opportunities for qualified practitioners.
Dermal fillers are a very safe, very quick, and very effective way to boost the appearance. There’s a lot more demand for this type of treatment than for the more invasive cosmetic procedures, and demand for qualified practitioners is on the rise.
7. You’ll meet people from all backgrounds
One of the most surprising things for many people that attend dermal filler training is that trainees aren’t just from aesthetic backgrounds. You’ll find people have come from dentistry, nursing, midwives, pharmacy, therapy, and even non-medical backgrounds.
We hope this has answered some questions that you and your family may have about dermal filler training and provided more insight into what to expect from your training.
After the Combined Foundation and Advanced Botox and dermal filler training course, the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine focuses on botulinum toxins and dermal fillers and allows students who complete the course to achieve formal recognition of their skills. It also gives the opportunity to be part of a register which will allow the public to check aesthetic qualifications.
