Get started with comprehensive botox & dermal filler training

The Fundamental 5 course package is designed for medical professionals such as Doctors, Dentists, Nurses and Midwives looking to expand their skill set and incorporate Botox and dermal filler treatments into their practice.

Whether you are new to the aesthetics industry or have some experience but lack confidence, this comprehensive and hands-on training programme will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver exceptional results for your patients.

Course Overview

The Fundamental 5 course package equips you with the necessary skills to provide safe, skilled, and confident patient assessments, treatments, and aftercare in the following areas:

Upper Face Botulinum Toxin

You will gain the skills to offer customised botulinum toxin treatments for the three main areas of the upper face: the forehead, the glabellar lines (frown lines), and the periorbital lateral canthal lines (crow's feet around the eyes). You will also learn techniques for slightly elevating the outer arch of the eyebrow (medial and lateral eyebrow lifting).

Our approach to teaching botulinum toxin injections is unique. Unlike other courses that may use a "paint by numbers" method, we believe every patient is different and requires a personalised treatment plan. Our expert trainers will guide you in performing comprehensive dynamic muscle assessments, allowing you to create tailored plans with individualised injection patterns and dosages for each patient.

We emphasise safe treatment for male and female patients with varying muscle activity and the importance of knowing when not to treat specific areas rather than following a one-size-fits-all approach.

Lower Face and Neck Botulinum Toxin

You will be trained in providing customised botulinum toxin treatments for the entire face, including the midface, lower face, neck, and underarms, instead of being limited to just the upper face. This comprehensive approach will allow you to achieve exceptional results for your patients, set yourself apart from other practitioners, and maximise your earnings from botulinum toxin treatments.

You will learn to assess and treat a variety of conditions such as bruxism, clenching, gummy smile, perioral wrinkles, jawline slimming, bunny lines, nasal flare reduction, nasal tip drooping, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, dimpled chin, platysmal neck bands, Nefertiti neck lift, and excessive underarm sweating.

Additionally, this course will enhance your dermal filler results by providing knowledge on how botulinum toxin treatments complement specific filler treatments. If you are a dentist, this course is essential as it will help you offer additional services to your patients, such as treating bruxism, clenching, gummy smiles, and perioral wrinkles.

Cheek Enhancement

You will learn to address the root cause of facial ageing by restoring volume loss in the cheeks, leading to a revitalised, youthful appearance. Our systematic, anatomical approach focuses on sculpting the lateral cheek, mid-cheek, and anterior cheek, with an indirect impact on the tear troughs.

Instead of just treating the symptoms of ageing like nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls, we believe in first addressing the midface volume loss. Our training will teach you the proper technique for treating cheeks first, which in turn will improve the appearance of other areas without the need for additional treatments.

Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines

You will learn to enhance the harmony of the lower face by treating the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, which will also complement your lip enhancement treatments. This comprehensive approach to mid and lower-face assessment will allow you to achieve holistic improvement in these areas.

You will be trained in the use of safe and effective techniques, such as micro-cannulas, to treat the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, ensuring a safe and effective procedure compared to outdated needle techniques. These techniques will also allow you to improve the appearance of the oral commissures and labio-mental crease for a happier, rested look.

With the knowledge and skills you acquire from this course, you will be able to successfully and confidently treat mild, moderate, and deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines, resulting in safe and predictable outcomes for your patients.

Lip Enhancement

The third practical day of the programme is dedicated solely to lips. It covers the most popular and effective needle techniques, allowing you to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to create stunning results. You will learn how to:

  • Define and enhance the lips with treatment of the vermillion border and philtrum
  • Volumise the body of the lip using our unique Avanti technique
  • Lift the mouth corners for a more relaxed lip appearance
The art of lip enhancement is crucial to master for success in facial aesthetics. With the increasing demand for lip treatments in the last decade, it's essential to offer bespoke, natural-looking lip enhancement that enhances your patients' beauty.

We will teach you the science and technique behind lip enhancement to produce custom, beautiful results that respect a patient's anatomy and proportions. Other courses may only teach basic lip techniques, leading to a lack of confidence and ability to achieve satisfactory results, especially when taught alongside other treatments.

What else is included?

How do we help you achieve success?

Navigating the aesthetics industry can be challenging, but with our expertise and guidance, you'll be able to avoid common pitfalls and achieve success. Our Fundamental 5 course provides extensive hands-on training and support that sets you up for success in the aesthetics industry. Our commitment to delivering the best training possible has been recognised through numerous awards and accolades for our training programs.

Comprehensive learning

Right from the start of your journey, you will have access to our state-of-the-art learning portal, accessible from your desktop or on the go with our App on iPhone, Android, iPad, and Mac devices. Our comprehensive evidence-based e-learning package includes essential anatomy modules and guidelines for managing complications.

The course includes detailed video tutorials, taking you step-by-step through the injection process, ensuring you can master and refresh your techniques at any time. Plus, we have included essential marketing and business setup modules to help you establish and grow your aesthetics practice.

One-to-one Training

Our focus on individual attention ensures you receive the best possible learning experience. With a strict 1:1 delegate-to-trainer ratio during hands-on injecting sessions, you'll receive personalised instruction and guidance from your dedicated trainer. Our small group sizes allow you to observe and learn from others as they analyse and treat their patients.

Clinical experience that sparks self-confidence

On each practical day of the course, you will have the opportunity to enhance your skills through hands-on training. First, you will practice facial assessment and marking up injection points on fellow delegates, gaining valuable experience and confidence in preparation for treating live patients.

Additionally, you will learn the key techniques of reconstituting, drawing up, and injecting precise volumes of botulinum toxin or dermal filler on life-like mannequins, ensuring that you are fully equipped to perform these treatments with accuracy and confidence when treating live patients. These pre-practical sessions will be a crucial part of your journey towards becoming a successful aesthetics professional.

All Models Included

On each day of this course, you will be given the opportunity to fully oversee and execute every aspect of your patient's treatment without having to share models with other delegates.

From conducting the initial consultation, taking pre-operative photos, analysing the patient, marking up injection points, performing the entire treatment, and providing aftercare instructions, you will guide your patients through the entire process from start to finish.

Quality Of Training

As medical professionals, you have invested years of dedication and hard work to reach your current level of expertise. Continuing your education in the aesthetics field is no exception!

Our expert trainers will guide you every step of the way to ensure that you meet the standards required for certification. Your designated instructor will conduct informal evaluations of your performance and provide valuable feedback and guidance throughout each hands-on training day.

With our Fundamental 5 course, you'll receive premium support at no additional cost. We understand that entering a new field can be intimidating, especially when it comes to treating patients. That's why we're here to provide you with the guidance and support you need to succeed.

Answers to Your Most Common Questions

We provide both, unlike some other botox and dermal filler training courses that will ask you to treat fellow delegates or bring your own patient.

At Avanti, you will treat your patients from start to finish, taking them through the whole patient journey, from consultation, taking photos, analysis, performing the entire treatment to providing aftercare instructions, as you would in your clinic.

You will also treat your patients under the direct one-to-one supervision of an expert trainer and will not have to share with other delegates. You will also watch other delegates analyse and treat their patients to integrate these skills further.

If you would like to bring a model, please let us know so we can help you arrange it. It is an excellent idea to bring your own model, so you can review the patient and take photos for marketing purposes once healing is complete.

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 whole patient case on each training day under one-to-one supervision from start to finish. You will also get invaluable constructive feedback throughout.

You will take 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, that can often be barriers in getting started no matter how simple!

From experience, not only do our delegates benefit from treating their own model 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 come with observing lots of patients. 

Prior to even going anywhere near a live patient, you will be able to practice injection techniques on dummy mannequins and also observe a demonstration by one of our expert trainers treating a live patient before you get a chance to treat yours.

Your Botox and dermal filler training will be with highly experienced and qualified Avanti trainers led by Dr Rikin Parekh, who has over 16 years of experience in the Aesthetics Industry. He is also a trainer and Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for many aesthetic companies such as Galderma (manufacturers of Azzalure & Restylane).

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.

You will receive an unhurried and supportive 1 on 1 injection experience with one of our expert trainers whilst treating your patient for all face indications, neck, décolletage and both hands.

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.

We will comprehensively cover how to avoid, manage and treat complications associated Botox and Dermal Filler treatments.

Alongside our comprehensive Botox and dermal filler training, we are renowned for our unparalleled free support before, during and after our courses.

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. We have various methods of support available for our delegates:

The Avanti Aesthetics Academy Delegates Groups

As soon as you finish your Botox and dermal filler training with us, you will be added to our closed Avanti Aesthetic Academy Delegates groups.

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 Dermal Filler orders. You will find it difficult to find lower prices!

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 tricky case or if they encounter a problem like a patient complication, then we would be there for them.

Delegates often remark that they would pay our course fees just for this support alone! It’s truly worth its weight in gold!

Yes! Our Delegates are given our 24-hour emergency contact number on completion of training. If you have any emergency issues, e.g. a patient complication, you will be able to contact an expert for immediate support.

Training takes place at our modern and well-equipped training venue in the heart of Central London. Transport links are plenty, and we will be more than happy to recommend routes and/or hotels.
