Course Overview

Cosmedica’s Foundation Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers Course provides its trainees with the best possible entry to the marketplace by learning how these two highly popular treatments work to rejuvenate the face holistically.

Unlike most basic training, this is a comprehensive introductory course, covering not only how to give effective injections, but all the skills and background knowledge you need to give your clients a comprehensive and professional service.
We cover everything from medicolegal aspects, consent, consultation skills, to managing and preventing rare side effects. You will leave us not only ready to inject, but also fully equipped to set up a business as a safe and competent aesthetic professional.

Cosmedica Training’s Foundation Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers Course is recommended for all suitably qualified and registered medical professionals who are new and inexperienced with cosmetic injectable treatments.
