Aesthetic Medicine

The aesthetic medicine sector incorporates a wide range of clinical roles and skills focussing upon client-centred care and appearance. Aesthetic treatments can be divided into surgical (e.g. hair restoration surgery and other surgical procedures tailed to individual client needs) and non-surgical (e.g. application of botulinum toxin and/or dermal filer, skin rejuvenation therapies and laser hair removal) cosmetic procedures.

Over recent years, the prevalence of cosmetically focussed treatments has dramatically increased. Consequently, Health Education England (HEE) has recently published guidelines as to the qualification requirements of aesthetic medicine practitioners (2016).

These guidelines sought to improve client safety through highlighting and standardising cosmetic procedure dependent practitioner training requirements, regardless of the practitioner’s professional background.

Our aesthetic medicine qualifications have been designed to adhere to and represent the aims identified by HEE. They have been developed through partnership and collaboration with leading industry experts and councils. Content aims to incorporate cutting edge knowledge and technology with the diverse requirements of client-centred care.

Achievement of any qualification within this portfolio will evidence a level of treatment specific practitioner knowledge and competence that can be relied upon within this safety critical sector.
