The idea of training for botox or fillers has been in the press recently.
Despite recommendations back in April, there are still no national guidelines for training for cosmetic treatments; which means that untrained and unqualified staff can administer botox (as long as they have a prescription for the patient).
When it comes to Dermal Fillers, these are not even a prescription medication.
While the media have focused on the lack of regulation in the sector, there is also concern about the availability of suitable quality courses for non-medical professionals. Again, there are no minimal standards for this, so it is good to know that there is a company who take training for non-surgical treatments extremely seriously.
SkinViva Training in Manchester is the brainchild of Dr Tim Pearce, who founded successful skin treatments company SkinViva back in 2008.
Now SkinViva Training Academy has been established to share the skills and knowledge that have made SkinViva a retail success.

I would like some information please on courses for unqualified staff wanting to administer Botox etc. I am currently finishing my 2nd year of a Beuaty Therapy course at Gasgow Uni and I also work part time at a Skin Rejuvination clinic.
Hi there, due to the risk of complications, insurances, side effects and the requirement to deal with prescription drugs, we only train medical professionals who are registered with a professional body (i.e. doctors, dentists, midwives, paramedics and nurses). The aesthetic market is ever-evolving however and there is discussion around allowing non-medical people at Level 7 (post-graduate) to be able to carry out procedures in the future for injectables. No time frame has been set as yet. Hope this helps you somewhat.
