Avanti aesthetics Academy

The Avanti Aesthetics Academy has risen to the forefront of medical aesthetics training over the last 6 years. We are a teaching organisation that stands apart with its comprehensive training and support on a wide range of aesthetic procedures. 

From our experience traditional one or two day courses leave delegates with very little confidence in carrying out procedures due to lack of comprehensive knowledge, hands-on practical injecting and post-course support. 

Our intention is and always has been to cultivate conscientious practitioners who are sufficiently supported, knowledgeable and skilled not only to deliver clinical excellence but also to put their patients’ safety and wellbeing first.

We see our role as a training provider as a great responsibility, not only for the furtherment of the industry by nurturing the practitioners of tomorrow but also to safeguard patients undergoing non- surgical procedures.

Harley Academy Post Graduate Aesthetics Courses

Harley Academy Post Graduate Aesthetics Courses

Harley Academy

The first in the UK to provide healthcare professionals with a Level 7 qualification in Botulinum Toxins and Dermal Fillers, Harley Academy’s training is unique. Students never learn simply by watching others carry out a procedure: each student is required to practice supervised injectable techniques on at least 30 patients, who are provided by the Academy. The Level 7 can be carried out flexibly so as to accommodate busy schedules and the course is future-proofed as it has been carefully designed to protect the practitioner against changes to regulations, and meets all current guidelines. Uniquely, the examination of trainees is carried out by an external body. Harley Academy currently has an encouraging pass rate of 75-80%. 

At the core of Harley Academy's success to date is its belief in personalised training and its ability to deliver a highly structured Level 7 experience at scale without compromising on quality.

Interface Aesthetics

Interface Aesthetics is an injectables training academy with a simple philosophy: small group training, on real patients, with safety and anatomical learning at the core. The academy was created with a single objective: to become THE STANDARD for injectables training in a largely unregulated industry. In addition to campaigning for greater regulation and improved standards of care, director and lead trainer Dr James Olding (MBChB BSc MRCS) mandates that all training is exclusively for registered healthcare practitioners, this being fundamental to improving patient safety and bringing about meaningful change in the industry.

Interface Aesthetics is a training partner of Allergan, works with Hamilton Fraser and Cosmetic Insure, and is one of a small number of providers of the Ofqual-regulated Level 7 Certificate in Injectables in the UK.

In order to broaden access to training and reduce risk during Covid-19, Dr Olding and his team have created a unique online learning platform which is video-based, covering the entire Level 7 Certificate syllabus. Interface Aesthetics boasts a diverse team of trainers, assessors and non-clinical staff, and delegates are able to draw on the expertise of experienced clinicians, who bring knowledge and skills from across medicine, surgery and dentistry.
