Practical Experience in Cosmetic Treatment Training

Learner practicePractice Makes Perfect!

There’s a lot of truth in that old saying. The best way to learn a new skill is to practice it. You couldn’t learn to drive a car without getting behind the wheel… You can’t learn to cut hair without picking up a pair of scissors… and you can’t learn to cook without getting hands-on in the kitchen.

Cosmetic treatments are the same. The best way to learn a good technique is by practising. That’s why SkinViva Training dedicate maximum amount of our courses to practical experience.

However, there are other conditions too

  1. Having good instruction before you pick up a needle to ensure that the theoretical knowledge is in place before practice
  2. Having supportive trainers to oversee your first patient experience, helping on the minutiae of technique and positioning

How much practical experience will I get?

This is one of the most common questions that delegates ask about our Combined Botox & Dermal Filler course. SkinViva Training’s Business Development Director Lee Cottrill explains:

A typical course starts with you arriving at the training centre and clinic at 8.45am.

After registration and some initial Q&A, we get started in the clinic rooms with some initial demonstration by 10.00am.

From there, the rest of the day to 6.00pm is focussed around small groups under close supervision building up your experience of treating forehead lines, frown lines, crows’ feet, nose-to-mouth lines (nasolabial folds), and mouth-to chin lines (marionettes).

In the weeks preceding the course, the clinic-based team at SkinViva Training work to build up a schedule of models who you will treat on the day. These are real, live models; so the experience on the day will also include the important consultation as well as injecting; making it a very rounded yet practically based approach to learning cosmetic treatments.
