Loved the course! It shows there's a huge difference between the theory and the practical. Technique, theory and patient care are three pieces you need to practice aesthetic medicine well. Also as a physician, record keeping is paramount to quality patient care. I liked that Dr Aicken has an out of the box software system called Flourish. That was a concern of mine. The course was great and we touched on a lot of topics and I certainly learned a lot. I certainly will continue in another course! Thank you Dr Aicken

I had a great time during training at Visage Aesthetics! Life models, a lot of interaction and a personal approach made it a valuable experience. Thank you Michael and Ruth for your charm and professionalism.

Cannot fault my training with Dr Aicken. Nothing is a problem for him or Ruth and I really think their method of teaching is the best. Mike is always at the end of an email when needed, is always very pleasant and nothing is a bother. I have learnt so much through Visage and will be using them for all my training needs.

I have been to Visage academy for couple of aesthetic course and I am so pleased with the training that I have received. Dr Michael explains everything in detail and I always leave the training with confidence! I highly recommend Visage aesthetic training academy to any aesthetic practitioner who is looking for quality training!

I attended training in November and this was the best decision I have made!!! I’m a PMU artist specialising in brows and work with needles and faces on a daily basis and due to demand from clients and also my love of anti-wrinkle treatments I decided to take this course. Incredible knowledge, detailed and relevant course and great practice with plenty clients on the day of training. Would highly recommend

I have attended many training events with Michael since 2006. I have recommended many other Nurses and Doctors to him for training. He is very professional easy to watch educational online tutorials and face to face practical sessions are spot on. Any time I have had issues afterwards and have required help advice, he always responds to any queries.
The course also makes up part of our “Anti-wrinkle & Dermal Fillers Non-medics & Medics Diploma” This course is compliant with HEE (Health Education England) guidelines and adheres to the regulatory framework as approved by the PSA (Professional Standards Authority) who authorise the JCCP (Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners) and Save Face to improve the safety of non-surgical cosmetic procedures.

e-Advanced Product Description 

This online Advanced Course is aimed at practicing Aesthetic practitioners who are looking to expand upon courses already undertaken either with Visage Academy or elsewhere.  It covers techniques not typically taught on Foundation courses and also deals with the treatment and correction of many of the side effects from therapies.  The course has been developed by Dr Michael Aicken who has been practicing and teaching the administration of Botulinum and Dermal Filler for 8 years, in conjunction with the most up to date clinical guidelines and research.

Modules include:

  • Cheek Augmentation using Dermal Filler
  • Advanced lips filler (correcting asymmetry, fixing mistakes)
  • Advanced Botox treatments (bunny lines, poppy chin, depressor oris angularis, lipstick lines, lower extended crows feet)
  • Botox complications and follow-ups
  • Dermal filler related complications part 1 (Skin ischaemia and blindness)
  • Dermal filler related complications part 2 (Infection)
  • Dermal filler related complications part 3 (Dissolving lumps using hyaluronic acid)

This course can be taken as a standalone course for £240 or as a package with our Foundation/Refresher course which will go over all the basic botulinum and filler administration material covered on standard courses for £420, a saving of over 10%.  Each course has online support and follow up via email and we are interactive with trainees when they have questions about course material.
