What about Facial Aesthetics Training?

Facial aesthetics training is one of the most popular course subjects at Este, and that’s why we offer a range of training options. If you’re already an aesthetic practitioner you can enrol on to our PROFHILO® training course. It’s a one-day hands-on course at our Birmingham clinic. If you’re interested in lip fillers, then our Lip Filler Master Class training will give you everything you need to know about lip lining and plumping.

If you’re just starting out on your facial aesthetics training, and you want a thorough grounding in working in injectables. Our one-day Foundation Anti Wrinkle and Dermal Filler training will give you all the tools you need. You’ll receive a full practical lesson, manuals, demos, hands-on supervision, as well as mentoring and live models. At the end of the course, successful delegates will receive a certificate of attendance and you’ll be legally certified to practice in injectables.

Perhaps you’re more interested in Botox. If this sounds like you, then our two-day Advanced Anti Wrinkle and Dermal Filler training ticks all the right boxes. At Este Training Academy, we want you to feel confident in your advanced aesthetics training. That’s why we make sure you get as much hands-on practice as possible. We’ll also make sure you have the information you need in order to set up insurance and pharmaceutical accounts.

Do I Need to do a Course if I want to Perform Laser Treatments?

Are you more interested in careers in medical aesthetics that use laser? That’s great. We can help with that too. In order to treat clients with laser therapy you’ll need to have an NVQ3 or equivalent. This is the most basic level of qualification you can have if you want to carry out laser treatments.

At Este, we offer Laser Level 4 Hair Removal, Skin Rejuvenation & IPL training. It’s a three-day course that covers using laser for a range of skin issues. This course has been designed for beauty therapists and medical specialists who would like to move on to becoming a qualified laser technician.

Anything Else?

So, you’ve nailed all the training, you’ve impressed your course practitioners and now you want a job. You’re half-way there! If you’ve showed the people who matter that you’re good, you’re ready to learn, and want to keep learning; you’re a great candidate for a career in the aesthetics industry.

After all, aesthetics isn’t just about the art of making someone look good by using dermal fillers or laser treatments, it’s about interacting with them, understanding what they want, helping them appreciate the different intricacies of each treatment.

A great aesthetician doesn’t just know how much Botox to inject, they know what’s right for their client because they’ve built up a relationship with them. So, learn your craft, keep learning, and be a people person who listens and understands.

If you’re ready to move forward in careers in medical aesthetics, get in touch with Este Training Academy and we’ll be happy to help.
