Our training faculty consists of Medical professionals with a valid NMC, GDC, GMC registration and are Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) as well as highly skilled medical aesthetic practitioners.
We are a passionate company that is committed to enhancing our delegates experience and knowledge. Ultimately our success is driven by our commitment to ensure that all of our students are happy and would recommend us as a reliable trusted and quality training provider.
We do not teach non medics in our training academy and our faculty only consists of Medical Professionals. You will see many unethical training academies who have very little experience in medical aesthetics and we want to assure you that we only work with like minded individuals.
