Is it Legal? Is it OK?
SkinViva Training is regularly approached by non-medical professionals eager to get into aesthetic treatments.
While the law allows anybody to carry out BOTOX and dermal fillers, SkinViva Training offer training courses exclusively for certain medical professionals with active professional body registration. This is primarily due to insurance considerations, although we do also share the view that these are medical procedures and should be seen as such in terms of ensuring adequate levels of medical training for those seeking to practice non-surgical treatments.
Our recent survey looked at what those already working in the industry think about the issue of non-medical professionals carrying out BOTOX and dermal fillers.
At SkinViva Training, we’ve helped hundreds of delegates to start out on a new career.
Training is the first step, but many people are quite concerned about the business side too – what practicalities need to be worked out and ultimately, whether it will be worth it.
We have listed the most common perceived challenges for someone setting up an aesthetics business for the first time.
