The most comprehensive and hands-on foundation training programme possible

Previously known as Fundamental 5, this programme is hugely successful, award winning and well renowned for being the most comprehensive and hands-on training possible.

You will learn how to assess and treat patients with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers using our unique full-face approach. Allow us to develop you into a confident and successful practitioner that stands out from the competition.

Who is it for?

Our foundation training programme has been designed for beginners and those needing a refresh with more comprehensive training alike.

In order to enrol on this programme you will need to satisfy three requirements:

  1. For UK citizens, you will require current registration with the General Medical Council, General Dental Council or Nursing & Midwifery Council.
  2. For international delegates, you will require evidence that you have completed a medical, dental or nursing degree (or equivalent).
  3. All delegates should have the ability to prescribe for their patients should an emergency situation arise.

Learn your way

At the Avanti Aesthetics Academy, we offer a blended delivery of training which incorporates both online and on-site learning at our Harley Street training clinic.

For best value and maximal learning we recommend practitioners follow the full foundation programme structure and schedule at least one mentoring session where you will treat an additional three patients under expert guidance.

Dermal Filler: Chin & Jawline Enhancement

On this course we will teach you how to perform chin and jawline treatments which are essential to improve lower facial balance and full facial harmony. We will also teach you how to tailor these treatments to rejuvenate the ageing lower face and optimise female beautification and masculinisation in men.

This is your opportunity to achieve dramatic results when combined with your level 1 foundation treatments. This course will also provide the necessary advancement of your cannula and needle skills required for our Level 3, 4 and 5 training.


Chin treatment using dermal fillers can balance facial proportions easily without the need for surgery and downtime. We can increase and decrease facial height, feminise or masculanise and improve the lateral profile of a patient dramatically all within minutes! Chin treatments are also integrally linked with lip treatments in terms of proportion and balance. It is imperative for you to be able to treat chins when treating lips.


Jowls are a common concern for patients and jawline definition treatments are one of the most popular treatments trending on social media currently. We will teach you how to combine chin and jawline treatments with treatments of the midface and botulinum toxin to massively reduce the appearance of jowls and create beautifully defined jawlines.

Botulinum Toxin: A Full Face & Neck Approach

This course day includes both foundation botulinum toxin and advanced botulinum toxin applications.

This day is focused solely on botulinum toxin treatments. It is essential to be able 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, like most other courses would teach you and most of your competitors are carrying out.

This course will allow you to achieve the most optimal results possible for your patients, stand apart from other clinicians and maximise your profits from botulinum toxin treatments.

As we all know every single patient is different. We don’t teach our delegates to inject using a “paint by numbers approach” but empower them to tailor their treatments to the needs of each patient. We will teach you our unique Avanti assessment techniques and how to predictably treat patients with individualised tailored dosing according to their muscle activity, rather than standard non-specific dosing taught on other courses. More importantly we will also teach you areas not to treat or cautiously in certain patients.

Dermal Filler: Cheek enhancement, nasolabial folds & marionette lines

Midface volumisation or cheek augmentation and nasolabial fold/marionette line treatment are the first steps in restoring the ageing face and cheek augmentation also plays a major role in female facial beautification and male facial masculinisation in younger patients.

The cheeks are one of the first places we start to lose volume, leading to sagging of tissues downwards and inwards resulting in nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls. For the aged patient it is important to treat this midface volume loss first then treat the symptoms – nasolabial folds and marionette lines to rejuvenate the mid and lower face.

On this course we will teach you a systemised, anatomical based approach of correcting volume loss of the aged midface and sculpting cheeks for beautification/masculinisation. You will learn how to treat the lateral, mid and anterior cheek and improve tear troughs indirectly through midface volumisation.

You will also learn how to treat the nasolabial folds using only safe micro-cannula techniques, which is essential for this ‘high risk zone’ for complications when using outdated and unsafe needle techniques as taught on most other courses. You will also be taught how to use micro-cannulas as well as safe needle techniques for disguising the mouth-to-chin lines (marionettes) and turning up the oral commissures (mouth corners) for a happier rested appearance. In addition, we will teach you how to treat the labio-mental crease (crease in between lower lip and chin).

Dermal Filler: Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement is the most popular dermal filler treatment in aesthetic practice. Over the last 10 years the demand for lip enhancement has soared and therefore it is an essential treatment to master to be successful in the field of facial aesthetics.

Unfortunately lip enhancement has a lot of bad press due to poor quality work involving incorrectly placed filler and disregard of natural anatomy, proportions and harmony. You merely have to spend a few minutes on Instagram to see the array of distorted lips being presented by many practitioners. This is not the type of practitioner you want to be!

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

Many courses will only teach you how to treat lips using very basic techniques, especially if being taught alongside other dermal filler treatments or even botulinum toxin! This often will leave delegates without the real confidence or technical ability to create the results that patients demand or they themselves are happy with. This Lip enhancement course day is dedicated purely to lips so you can really develop the technical skills and knowledge required to create beautiful lip results!

On this day we will show you 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 techniques and create a happier resting lip by lifting the oral commissures (mouth corners).
