Aesthetic Clinician Trainers
At SkinViva Training Academy, our team of Aesthetic Clinician Trainers are medically qualified individuals who also have extensive training, skill, experience and knowledge of injectable aesthetic treatments.
Our team includes carefully chosen doctors, dentists and prescribing nurses, many of whom also work within sister company SkinViva Clinic, where they carry out regular clinics offering skin treatments.
This means that they know first hand what it’s like to carry out a consultation, how to guide a patient on the most appropriate treatment.
As well as having exceptional injection skills, their training commitments mean they share their knowledge of medical safety with a keen eye for artistic results. Some have also chosen to maintain commitment to the NHS alongside their work in aesthetics.
SkinViva Training courses contain a high amount of practical experience which is mentored and directed by our experienced team. With small group sizes, you’ll get plenty of opportunity to talk about work in the industry as well as learn from the best.
Not all Aesthetic Clinician Trainers are present at all courses, so if you’d like to learn alongside a particular Aesthetic Clinician Trainer, please get in touch with our admin team.
