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

  • Setting up your aesthetics business

Day 2:  Introduction to Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

  • 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 🖤
