You will gain lots of hands on experience performing all the treatments in a small group setting under the supervision of Dr Aicken, an aesthetics practitioner with over 12 years experience.

Once we receive your course payment and application form we’ll send you the login details for the online content so that you can get started. The online content should take around 6-8 hours to complete – it’s an insurance approved, comprehensive guide to dermal filler and anti wrinkle injections; you can take a look at the online syllabus.

Why do Anti-Wrinkle Toxin / fillers?

There is potential for a high gross margin. Patients currently spend £150-£1,000 per visit and return 3-4 times per year.

For Dentists

There is little financial risk in you adding Cosmetic Injectables to your practice price list. Typically your dental indemnity will already cover you for Anti-Wrinkle Toxin / Dermal fillers – or at least can be extended to cover these with a relatively small additional premium. This course Meets the General Dental Council Educational Criteria for 8 Hours self-verifiable CPD.

For Doctors

There is little financial risk in you adding Cosmetic Injectables to your practice price list. Typically your medical indemnity will already cover you for Anti-Wrinkle Toxin / Dermal fillers – or at least can be extended to cover these with a relatively small additional premium. As a GP this course may meet your own professional educational objectives or may simply help you extent the high-profit services offered by your practice. Note that there is precedent for GPs from ROI obtaining locum funding in order to offset the cost of attending this course; you should consider enquiring locally about this option.

Who are the trainers?

Dr Michael David Aicken has been practicing Cosmetic Injectables for 11 years now and running this course, endorsed by Cosmetic Insure, Lonsdale Insurance and Cathedral Insurance for over 9 years. Michael setup the Visage Aesthetics UK LTD Franchise system which now supports and regulates six franchisees and employs four support staff. Michael has also, more recently founded Flourish, the Cosmetic Information Management App. He has experience using all of the major Anti-Wrinkle Toxin and Hyaluronic Acid products on the market. Michael has also written some in-depth ‘blog’ posts aimed at expert cosmetic injectable practitioners; these have since been commissioned for ‘repurposing’ within well-known cosmetic journals. Joining him on the Bangor course is Lorna Venus, a specialist nurse with 13 years experience in cosmetic injectables.

Why choose this course?

Small group training equates to intense, high-yield learning. You will be confident in both basic and advanced Anti-Wrinkle Toxin and Dermal Filler techniques by the end of the day. All models for practical training will be provided on the day of the course as well as full indemnity cover. This course is substantially better value than other UK courses. Similar courses will charge £1,600-£2,380 plus VAT. We can provide practical advice and support as well as specimen consent forms and patient advice sheets for you starting your own clinic.The Visage Academy Cosmetic Injectables training course aims to train delegates to a standard high enough to work for Visage Aesthetics UK. Basic and advanced Anti-Wrinkle Toxin and Dermal Filler techniques are taught all on one course. We limit our courses to 8 delegates per trainer.

Suggested Aesthetic Insurance Companies

Often adding Aesthetics to an existing MDU/MPS or dental equivalent policy can prove more expensive than having a stand alone Aesthetic specific policy. There are many companies and options out there below are an example of two that approve our courses:

Course fee

(contact us for discounts on multiple bookings)

By making this course payment, I confirm that I have read and understand the cancellation policy and eligibility criteria.

Eligibility Criteria

It’s really the insurance companies who make the rules for eligibility criteria as they offer insurance to practitioners following training. We highly recommend speaking with Cathedral or Insync about insurance requirements before making an enquiry with us.

Cancellation Policy

Full refund minus £50 administration fee if 21 days notice given. Group bookings provide discounts for each member of the group. If one person cancels their refund will therefore be reduced to offset the discount already given to other group members. Note also that we cannot refund any credit card fees paid by you during the payment. Please also note that if, for any reason, you decide that you would like to move your booking to a later date after making your course payment, this will be considered as a cancellation and re-booking, so the cancellation fee plus any other associated fees may apply. *Additional COVID-19 cancellation policy. If you pay your course fee and subsequently a COVID-19-related government restriction leads to this course being postponed, you will be offered three alternative course dates. If you choose not to accept any of these alternative course dates (excluding any that themselves become postponed due to COVID-19-related government restrictions), this will be considered a cancellation on your part, and the above policy will apply. If you accept an alternative course date in writing and then choose to cancel your space, the course date, for the purposes of this policy, will be the date that has last been confirmed in writing. This still stands true, even if you confirm the alternative course date within 21 days of it taking place.


    We know that times are uncertain, but if you’d like to find out more, without any commitment to join a course now, leave us your details. Currently our courses are still running in Belfast and London, so we can also get you booked in now online or via a callback.
