How did our training go?

February 9th, 2020 | Nathalie Fennell

It was a huge day for Dr Nathalie and Dr Becky and everyone at The Clinic really when we opened our doors for the first time to our delegates training in Toxin and Filler.  The training school has been a long time in the set-up and has required Dr Becky to complete an additional teaching qualification.  We are proud to announce that we are fully sponsored by Merz Aesthetics for our training school, which means that we can provide all delegates with their high end online learning platform access.

We are also proud to announce that we are a Hamilton Fraser recommended course, this means that you can be insured by Hamilton Fraser (the UK’s leading cosmetic insurance) after training with us.

So, once all the paperwork was done – how did it actually go?  Well, our course coordinator Penny put on an excellent show of hospitality with food and drink provided throughout the day.  So that was a good start.  Our courses are deliberately kept to a small number of delegates, once they’ve been taught the basics (fundamentals of ageing and how to deal with emergencies) we can make the course very delegate led to learn at the rate that they’re able to and to make sure that they get out of it what they came for. 

We had four procedures for each of the delegates to do which is double the amount of models you can usually expect for an aesthetics course.  All models were carefully chosen to be appropriate for the course.  They knew what they wanted and had been seen by our doctors before the course to make sure they fully understood the process. All of our candidates were offered the opportunity to follow up with the models they had treated on the day in a fortnight when they come back for their follow-ups with our doctors.

Our delegates received training in the ageing face, managing expectations, delivering treatments as well as how to follow up and deal with complications or results that just weren’t quite right.

We loved having our delegates at The Clinic and we can’t wait to release our new dates to get the next lot of health care professionals through our doors!  We hope that all of our lovely ladies (but we do hope to take some blokes too next time!) left the course feeling fantastic, excited to face the aesthetic world and knowing that they’ve got Team Clinic in their back pocket if there are any issues.

And as always – we are always open to hearing your questions or feedback. Don’t be a stranger and send us an email to reception@theclinicburton.co.uk, DM us on Facebook or Instagram and we’ll be happy to help.

Love, Team Clinic 🖤

Training at The Clinic

January 19th, 2020 | Nathalie Fennell

What does it take to be a good aesthetic practitioner?  The truth be known, it is really hard to define this.  At The Clinic, we believe in two different aspects of training that we hope makes us the best in the business. 

Firstly we believe that the ethics of aesthetics are incredibly important; this is why we have an ethical injecting policy at The Clinic.  It helps to focus the mind, away from a money-driven environment to force practitioners to think “Is this the right thing that I’m doing for my patient?”. Patients, seeking aesthetic procedures, can be vulnerable, they can have low confidence and can struggle, in the extreme, with body dysmorphic disorder.  For us, if you as a practitioner can answer truly that you are only doing procedures that are right for the patient, then you’ve conquered the first major hurdle.

Secondly, it’s an appreciation of the actual art of aesthetics, and this appreciation has to be underpinned by training and understanding of the products available and the best way to deliver them.  Obtaining this second step is hard, and we appreciate that. 

We opened our training school this month and our first courses will run on 1st and 2nd February. Each day can be taken as a separate entity and we will train healthcare professionals in basic toxin and introductory fillers.  Each of our courses can then be used as a contribution to the holy grail of aesthetics, the Level 7 qualification.  Our courses will stand out from the crowd as they set out not only how to deliver the more simple treatments in aesthetics but also, how to fully assess your client and manage their expectations about what you can achieve for them.  In our experience, making sure that you know the results you can get, is fundamental to making sure that you have a trusted relationship with your patients.

You will leave one of our courses, delivered at our state of the art training school and taught by our two most senior clinicians who both work as plastic surgery registrars in the NHS (Nathalie Fennell and Rebecca Rollett), knowing that you have a support network with The Clinic that if you want it, will always be there.  Following your training day, you will be able to book further shadowing days where we can assess your abilities further and help you to develop in particular, your consultation skills.  You will of course also leave with a good understanding of the products we use, all by Merz Aesthetics, and the building blocks to set up your own practice.

Agenda for both days:

Day 1:  Introduction to Toxin

  • The consultation process
  • Managing patient expectations and consent
  • Medicines management
  • Prescribing toxin
  • Administering upper face toxin (2-3 models provided to train on)
  • Follow up and best practice guidelines
  • Introduction to managing adverse events/complications/dissatisfactory results
  • Setting up your aesthetics business

Day 2:  Introduction to Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

  • The consultation process
  • Managing patient expectations and consent
  • When is surgery more appropriate?
  • Prescribing fillers and other associated medications
  • Treating nasolabial folds, the lower face and cheeks
  • Complications of fillers
  • Follow up and best practice guidelines
  • Introduction to managing adverse events and dissatisfactory results
  • Setting up your aesthetics business

On completion of the training, you will receive a certificate from The Clinic Academy, which is recognised by the insurers Hamilton Fraser and enables you to start your own journey in aesthetic practice.

Finally, we can never promise, but, we are always looking for people who will fit well into our team.  And if that’s you, and you like how we work, please do tell us.  If you would like to train with us please contact penny@theclinicburton.co.uk who is our training course co-ordinator.  All courses are £1000 per day incl. of VAT. 

Looking forward to see you all!

Love, Team Clinic 🖤
