upper face aesthetics course

Cheek Enhancement Course

SkinViva Training’s Cheek Enhancement Course will train you in all aspects of this advanced procedure.

Cheek enhancement is an essential component of your aesthetic skill set.  The procedure is a highly effective way of both making people look younger, but also more beautiful.  Trainees often express a much higher degree of reward as a result- nothing quite beats the feeling of seeing someone get more beautiful before your eyes!

Like all of our courses, we will train you how to consult and assess your clients so that you deliver a tailored treatment and achieve the best possible results.

We will share with you the essential artistic principles that will help you design treatments that fit each face using a simple 5 step assessment process designed by our Clinical Director, Dr Tim Pearce.    We also teach you industry leading safety protocols to greatly limit the chances of your patients having unnecessary complications and side effects.

This course has been specifically designed to develop a more advanced practical and theoretical knowledge of this complex and artistic treatment.

Previous attendance on SkinViva Training’s Foundation Botox & Dermal Filler course is not required, but it is recommended in order to provide the core building blocks of experience in carrying out Dermal Filler procedures.

Trainees attending this course can expect to leave being confident with Juvederm Voluma and Volift products from the long-lasting Vycross range.

Trainees are provided with a certificate of attendance.
