Getting started

The Clinic Ready Programme

Our award-winning Clinic Ready Programme, (previously known as Fundamental 5) is the most comprehensive, hands-on Botox and dermal filler training possible.

The Most Popular Programme for Ensuring Confidence and Success in Aesthetics

By completing this programme, you will incorporate Botox and dermal filler treatments into your practice successfully and confidently.

Using our unique full-face approach, you will learn how to assess and treat patients with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. In addition, you will stand apart from other practitioners, having achieved the highest level of hands-on experience.

By training with Avanti, you will be able to prepare, analyse and treat your patients straight away – safely, skillfully and with confidence.

The Clinic Ready Programme includes:

You will learn to offer tailored treatment of the three upper face botulinum toxin indications. These indications include; 

  • Forehead
  • Glabellar (frown lines)
  • Periorbital lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet (around the eyes))

You will also learn how to slightly lift or enhance the outer arch of the eyebrow (medial and lateral eyebrow lifting). 

We don’t believe in teaching botulinum toxin injections with a painting by numbers method of treatment planning or injecting, like many other courses teach you. Every patient is different, and we will teach you how to perform comprehensive dynamic muscle assessments to ensure that you can formulate the perfect, bespoke treatment plan by individualising the pattern of injections and dosages for each patient. 

In addition, we will teach you how to safely treat males and females and patients with varying muscle activity and when not to treat certain zones, rather than blanket treating everyone with the same areas.

You will learn to assess and treat patients with botulinum toxin using a bespoke full-face holistic approach rather than restricting your skillset and results to the upper face. This full-face approach will allow you to achieve optimal results for your patients, stand apart from other clinicians and maximise your profits from botulinum toxin treatments. 

You will learn to offer tailored treatment of all the midface, lower face and neck botulinum toxin indications along with the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating). These indications include:

  • Bruxism & clenching
  • Gummy smile
  • Perioral wrinkles
  • Jawline slimming / masseter reduction 
  • Bunny lines (nose scrunch lines)
  • Nasal flare reduction
  • Nasal tip drooping
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Dimpling chin
  • Platysmal neck bands
  • Nefertiti neck lift
  • Axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive armpit sweating)

As many of the indications taught on this course compliment specific dermal filler treatments, this course is a must if you wish to enhance your dermal filler results.

If you are a dentist, this course is crucial for you so that you will be able to treat bruxism/clenching, gummy smiles and perioral wrinkles to compliment your dentistry.

The cheeks are one of the first places we start to lose volume, leading to the sagging of tissues downwards and inwards, resulting in nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls. For the aged patient, it is essential to treat the cause first (the midface volume loss) rather than treating the symptom primarily or alone (nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls). 

You will learn to offer your patients a systemised, anatomical approach to correcting volume loss in the aged face and sculpting cheeks for beautification/masculinisation. Indications you will treat include:

  • Lateral cheek
  • Mid-cheek
  • Anterior cheek
  • Indirect treatment of tear troughs

We will teach you how to treat patients as you should in your own clinic, that is, treat cheeks first and then treat nasolabial folds and marionette lines after, as they will indirectly improve once you have treated the cause.

Treatment of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines will ensure lower-face harmony and complement your lip enhancement treatments.

Assessment of the mid and lower face as one unit often leads to treating these areas simultaneously. You will learn how to treat cheeks together with nasolabial folds and marionette lines to get a holistic improvement of the mid and lower face.

You will learn to treat the nasolabial folds using a micro-cannula and safe needle techniques. Using a cannula is the safest technique for this higher-risk zone compared to outdated and unsafe needle techniques.

You will also learn to use micro-cannulas and safe needle techniques to disguise the marionette lines and turn up the oral commissures (mouth corners) for a happier rested appearance. In addition, you will learn how to treat the labio-mental crease (crease in between lower lip and chin).

You will be able to successfully treat mild, moderate and deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines confidently, safely and predictably.

Lip enhancement is the most popular dermal filler treatment in aesthetic practice. Over the last ten years, the demand for lip enhancement has soared, and therefore it is an essential treatment to master to be successful in facial aesthetics. 

You will learn the fine art and science of lip enhancement, so you can create bespoke, beautiful, natural-looking lips that enhance your patient’s beauty rather than diminish it. For patients who want a more voluminous lip, we will show you how to deliver this whilst still respecting the patient’s anatomy and proportions.

Many courses will teach you how to treat lips using only basic techniques. Unfortunately, this lack of experience will often leave delegates without confidence or the technical ability to create acceptable results – especially true if being taught alongside other dermal filler treatments or botulinum toxin! 

The third practical day of the programme is dedicated exclusively to lips. We will cover all the most popular and effective needle techniques so you can develop the technical skills and knowledge required to create beautiful results! On this day, you will learn how to:

  • Artistically enhance and provide definition by treating the vermillion border and philtrum
  • Volumise by treating the body of the lip in a bespoke manner using our specific Avanti technique
  • Create a happier resting lip by lifting the oral commissures (mouth corners)

The art of injecting is just one aspect of this course; other elements 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 with botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments.

We provide our delegates with 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.

Invest in Your Knowledge and World-Class Education

Learn on the Avanti Portal or mobile app

As soon as you book, we provide you with access to the Avanti Portal and mobile app. Here you will learn theoretical knowledge through our comprehensive, evidence-based modules, step-by-step video treatment guides, and interactive quizzes.

We place a major emphasis on anatomy and comprehensive complications avoidance and management so that you can be the safest practitioner possible.

Combining this with the best hands-on practical training available and access to our free unrivalled post-course support is what sets our courses apart from the rest.

Face to face training with industry experts

No compromises on your experience, whatsoever

Many other training providers will tell you that you will have the opportunity to treat multiple patients during their courses. Unfortunately, in reality, you often get minimal hands-on injection experience. You will share patients and treat one injection point on one patient and then another injection point on another.

At Avanti, we know this “pass the syringe” training method is a compromise that results in a lack of confidence and a poor standard of clinical care. Consequently, we provide one-on-one, hands-on training with expert trainers who will give you the confidence required to build a thriving aesthetics career.

On each practical day, you will get the opportunity to practice facial assessment and marking up injection points on fellow delegates before treating your patients.

You will also practice reconstitution, drawing up, and how to inject precise volumes of botulinum toxin or dermal filler accurately on life-like mannequins. These pre-practical sessions will enable you to make the most of your botox and dermal filler training experience when treating live patients.

At Avanti, you will not have to share patients between other delegates or treat each other with saline. Instead, we provide suitable model patients for you to treat each day. 

Before treating your patients, you will observe our expert trainers demonstrating treatment on theirs on each practical day. You will then complete your cases as you would in your own practice (the whole treatment journey). The journey will include:

  • Taking pre and post-op photos
  • Undertaking a thorough consultation and assessment
  • Delivering treatment and providing post-operative instructions

By completing the entire botox and dermal filler journeys repeatedly under direct one-to-one supervision and guidance, you will be perfectly prepared to do the same for your patients when you leave us. You will also get the opportunity to learn by watching other delegates complete their own patient journeys, which our delegates find invaluable.

Our Botox and dermal filler training courses and programmes are for medical professionals who wish to excel at what they do, with confidence and with the safety and well-being of their patients being a priority. We believe that you should never compromise on your level of training, professional registration or the safety of your patients.

As Doctors, Dentists and Nurses, you have trained and worked hard to get where you are. Training in aesthetics is no different! 

Our expert trainers will work with you to ensure you meet the standards required for certification. On each practical day, your supervising trainer will informally assess your work and provide constructive feedback on the following criteria:

  • Medical and aesthetic history taking
  • Consultation and communication skills
  • Informed consent
  • Patient assessment and mark-up
  • Knowledge of anatomy
  • Overall understanding of treatment indications and procedures
  • Preparation of materials before treatment
  • Injection technique 
  • Aseptic technique
  • Post-procedure management and advice
  • Patient feedback
  • Professionalism

Unparalleled Support that's Worth its Weight in Gold

Frequently asked 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 with chin, jawline and jowl 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, Harley Street. Transport links are plenty, and we will be more than happy to recommend routes and/or hotels.

Our Address is:

The Avanti Aesthetics Academy – 96 Harley Street, Marylebone, London, W1G 7HY
