Cosmetic injectables have become incredibly popular among those looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or boost their facial volume. Injections are a non-invasive and quick option to look younger and refreshed with results that last up to two years depending on the type of injectable used.

In this course, you will learn to use both neurotoxins (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and dermal fillers such as Restylane, Belotero and Juvederm. You will also be instructed on the physiology, anatomy and pharmacology of these injectable products. You will receive hands-on training using these products with a variety of clients. You will be able to practice your skills in a safe and realistic setting while being mentored by experienced injectors.

You will receive a certificate upon completion of this course. This cosmetic injectables course certificate can be used to apply for your Australian registration as a Certified Injectables Practitioner. You will also be provided with a comprehensive reference book and all course materials are available on our website for 12 months.

Botox-type injections: Botox works by selectively paralyzing the muscles in your face that cause wrinkles and fine lines, like frown lines and crow’s feet. It can also help smooth out the texture of your skin, which gives a more youthful appearance.

Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers that can add natural-looking volume and smooth out your skin’s texture. They can plump up thin or crepey lips, fill in nasolabial folds (the lines that appear around your mouth) and give definition to your cheekbones or jawline. Hyaluronic acid fillers can also address deeper wrinkles such as glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet. These wrinkles are caused by repetitive movements and can be reduced with injections that target the muscles responsible for them.

Sculptra: This injectable, which uses poly-L-lactic acid to boost your natural collagen production, takes several treatments over 4-6 weeks before you will see the best results. It is particularly effective at addressing deep creases, such as the ones that can develop around your nose or lips and can also be used to fill in and define hollow areas.

You should be aware that, as with any medical procedure, there is a risk involved with the use of cosmetic injections. Your prescriber should fully explain any risks to you and be able to provide aftercare advice. You should also ask about the product or brand of cosmetic injections that your prescriber is going to use, as not all products are created equal. Make sure that the brand is listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).

Be aware that a cosmetic injection is a serious medical procedure and should only be performed by a health professional. It is important that you choose a practitioner who has extensive experience with injectables, a well-developed aesthetic eye and an excellent understanding of facial anatomy.
