Foundation Dermal Filler & Botox Training

SKilD Academy



The Skild Botox and lip filler course provides delegates with the best possible start to their careers by teaching how these incredibly popular treatments work to reduce muscle activity and volumise the face. Skild have combined Botox and dermal filler training to create an in-depth and structured way of entering the field of medical aesthetics.

This is an in-depth and multidisciplinary Botox and lip filler course, covering not only physical injection techniques, but the expertise and competence necessary to provide excellent client experiences when you put your skills into practice. Our experts will guide you through the techniques of delivering Botulinum Toxin (sometimes referred to as Botox) and dermal fillers on multiple live models. Upon successful completion of the foundation Botox and lip fillers course delegates will be ideally positioned to enter the field of injectable treatments.

Business aspects, medico-legal requirements, recognising ‘valid’ consent, consultation ability, managing complications and more skills are all taught to ensure that you leave us as complete an aesthetic practitioner as possible. This course is recommended for all professionals that are medically trained and qualified with the relevant regulatory bodies and looking into the field of medical aesthetics.
