The answer to this question comes down to the level of training that you wish to receive and what kind of practitioner you want to be!
If you want to be a confident and safe practitioner you will want to have focused training on that one particular area that you are learning about, knowing that you will be able to effectively analyse any case that walks into your clinic and treat them from start to finish with confidence.
Most other training providers will teach non-surgical rhinoplasty treatments amongst lots of other dermal filler procedures, and sometimes even along with advanced botulinum toxin treatments as an “Advanced Botox & Dermal Filler” course, all on the same day! You can’t learn lots of different unrelated dermal filler treatments all in one day without compromising on the knowledge of each treatment area and the skills to perform them. Something has to give! Unfortunately, these courses leave delegates lacking in confidence to assess patients properly and without the necessary skills and confidence to perform the treatments in practice. 40% of our delegates have been to other cheaper providers, to their own regret, before deciding to invest in our courses! As they say “pay cheap…pay twice!” Don’t make the same mistakes!
On these other courses, you will also be forced to share models with other delegates (injecting one point, passing the syringe to another delegate to do another single injection point and so on – we call it ‘pass the parcel injecting’!). You will therefore receive very little injection experience, although you have ‘treated several models’, yet not treated a single whole patient case from start to finish. For dentists learning how to do a crown prep, this would equate to you only preparing a millimetre of a tooth margin, then another delegate taking over and doing another millimetre, and then another delegate doing another millimetre, and so on! For doctors and nurses this would equate to learning how to cannulate a patient and you only putting on the tourniquet whilst the other delegates did the rest! Crazy! For maximal confidence you need to perform the whole treatment yourself, from start to finish on a patient and then watch other delegates treat their patients to integrate your knowledge and skills further, like at Avanti!
As medical professionals you have a duty of care to the safety and wellbeing of your patients. This includes the comprehensiveness of the training you receive and the results you can deliver, especially in regards to dermal fillers. If you are the type of practitioner that wishes to compromise on the level of that training, confidence, and the resultant patient care and results, there are plenty of lower cost, lower quality training providers out there for you! We are not the academy for you! We are only looking to only work with medical professionals that are looking to be the best aesthetic practitioners they can be, and are willing to invest in themselves to gain the highest quality theoretical knowledge and practical injecting skills possible to make their career goals a reality.
After completing this Masterclass training focusing solely on non-surgical rhinoplasty, you will feel confident to perform these treatments in your clinic reproducibly and safely. That is our Avanti guarantee!
