Welcome to the Avanti Aesthetics Academy


The Avanti Aesthetics Academy has risen to the forefront of medical aesthetics training. We are a teaching organisation that stands apart with its comprehensive training and support on a wide range of aesthetic procedures.

From our experience traditional one or two day courses leave delegates with very little confidence in carrying out procedures. The Avanti Aesthetics Academy was established after our Medical Director, Dr. Rikin Parekh B.D.S, noticed the real need for more comprehensive hands-on training and ongoing post-training support.

Choosing a course provider


It is important that you choose an appropriate course to set your foundations in this field. We get a lot of delegates coming onto our courses that have been on one, two or even three previous foundation courses before finally coming to us. The main reasons being a lack of experience and confidence due to inadequate or incomplete training.

We know the common pitfalls and barriers to success that medical professionals face when entering the aesthetics industry. This is why we have designed our courses to provide you with the most comprehensive training that will maximise your experience and confidence to treat patients safely and reproducibly.

Frequently Asked Questions

The main reason practitioners fail to achieve success in aesthetics can be attributed to very little hands on experience during their training, leading to a lack of confidence in carrying out procedures on their own patients.

We pledge to you that unlike the majority of other courses we will provide suitable models for you and you will not share these models with other delegates. You will get to treat a minimum of 5 full cases under 1 to 1 supervision from start to finish over the 5 day course, maximising your hands-on experience and hence confidence. You will also get invaluable constructive feedback throughout.

You will take all your models through the whole patient journey from taking optimal photographs, carrying out medical and aesthetic histories, consultation, patient analysis, marking up, injecting, and finally giving post-operative instructions, precisely as you would in practice after you leave our course. Key elements which are missed on other courses, which can often be barriers in getting started no matter how simple!

From experience, not only do our delegates benefit from treating their own models but have found observing other delegates treating theirs to be invaluable! This enables you to solidify the treatment process, assessment and analysis skills and pick up useful hints and tips that comes with observing lots of patients. You will treat and observe up to 70 cases in total throughout the course!

Prior to even going anywhere near a live patient, you will be able to practice preparation of all injectables, and inject life like mannequins to practice injection techniques and positioning. This will then be followed by a demonstration by one of our expert trainers treating a live patient before you get a chance to treat yours.

Yes, both are provided. You’ll practice injection techniques and positioning on mannequins before injection of real live models. Unlike other course providers, we don’t think training on mannequins alone provides adequate experience.

Your training will be with highly experienced and qualified trainers led by Dr Rikin Parekh, who has over 12 years of experience in the Aesthetics Industry. Our trainers remain at the cutting-edge of Facial Aesthetics to ensure all course content covers the latest and most up to date techniques in Facial Aesthetics.

The art of injecting is just one aspect of this course; other aspects include knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, consenting issues, aftercare and, more importantly, complication management.

Unlike many courses, we comprehensively cover how to avoid, manage and treat complications. You will be taught how to:

  • Recognise complications arising from HA fillers & Botulinum Toxin
  • Understand the risks of administering Hyaluronidase (Hyalase®)
  • Patient management
  • Reconstitute, patch test and administer Hyaluronidase in both emergency and non-emergency situations

Alongside our comprehensive training, the Avanti Aesthetics Academy is renowned for its unparalleled free support to its delegates not only before and during our courses but also after.

We know how daunting it can be learning a new skill on a course and then going out into practice and treating patients without proper support and guidance. We want all of our delegates to feel safe in the knowledge that if they need any questions answered, whether it be a reminder of what things to order, which products to use, treatment planning for a particularly difficult case or if they encounter a problem like a patient complication, then we would be there for them.

We do not believe in charging for any of our support methods. All we want is that you feel confident in the knowledge and skills that you have learnt with us, take them into practice and have us for support if and when you require it, to ultimately be the successful aesthetic practitioners that you want to be.

Delegates often remark that they would pay our course fees just for this support alone! It’s truly worth its weight in gold! We have various methods of support available for our delegates:

The Avanti Aesthetics Academy Delegates Group

As soon as you finish any courses with us you will be added to our closed Avanti Aesthetic Academy Delegates Facebook group.

Here you will be able to ask any questions you may have amongst colleagues like yourself who have been trained at the academy. No question is silly in this forum! Whether it be help in treatment planning, assistance with a problem of any sort or any other question from the most basic to more complex, we are here for you!

All of our expert trainers and Dr Rikin Parekh himself will be available on this group to help, alongside your colleagues, who will also be more than willing to help. We aim to respond to any questions on the group as soon as possible so you can get a speedy response to your enquiry.

This method of support has proven invaluable for all of our delegates. It also serves as an excellent learning resource as you learn from your colleagues’ experience together with all the ancillary learning material that is posted on here by us. It is a great place to get to know like-minded colleagues and network also.

Email Support

If you feel more comfortable sending us an email in private to our designated support email address, by all means, you can do so.

Dr Parekh or one of our experts will endeavour to answer your emails asap. We may then arrange to call you depending on the nature of the enquiry.

Emergency Telephone Hotline

You will be given our Avanti Aesthetics Academy Emergency Mobile Hotline number on completion of your training. If you have any emergency issues e.g a patient complication you will be able to contact one of our experts for immediate advice if required.

In addition to the above, we provide access to our unique Avanti Aesthetics Academy discounts for future Toxin and Dermal Filler orders with pharmacies. You will find it difficult to find cheaper prices!

Yes! If referred by an existing Delegate of ours we offer £150 off the course, the referrer will also receive a reward of £150. There may be other temporary discounts throughout the year, check for this with our Course Coordinator.

We provide monthly payments options to make your training affordable and accessible, please feel free to discuss finance options with us.
