4. Tailored Approach to Your Training
At aesthetictrainingenhancement™ we do not believe in a “1 size fits all” approach to aesthetic training. Most delegates start with the introductory Level 1 courses but this is just the beginning of their Journey. 72% of Cosmetic Course delegates continue to our Advanced Level 2 & Level 3 training (concentrating on more complex techniques and advanced Dermal Filler applications) and bespoke 1-1 packages focusing on additional practical experience in the areas they particularly want to develop. With Dr Alek’s aesthetictrainingenhancement™ courses, you control your training: we are very flexible.
5. We Give You More
Most Botox® training courses divide their introduction and advanced courses into the upper and lower face respectively; our Level 1 course teaches you in how to approach the entire face when administering Botox® treatments. Each course in Level 1 runs for a full day to ensure you get the appropriate length of theory, watching live demonstrations, and your own personal hands on experience.
