Botox training

Aesthetics training for Beauty Therapists

“Great three-in-one course! This is medical-grade training so I now feel super-qualified!

Michaela is a brilliant trainer. So easy to understand and so supportive. The hotel is great too! I made full use of the spa.

Thank you for a wonderful couple of days.”

Why train with us?

Our trainer, Michaela Kenworthy

Allison Roberts botox training

Michaela has been a skin care specialist for over 30 years and runs a highly successful practice. She is a qualified, government-approved trainer, assessor and quality assurer for VTCT and ITEC.

Michaela’s vast experience and knowledge make her one of the best and most recognised educators in the business. She has won numerous awards for her work over the years and is a highly respected judge for a number of industry awards.

Michaela works hand-in-hand with Allison McCarron who delivers our Botox and filler courses for medical professionals. Michaela trained with Allison at medical level and so is able to offer her training from both a beauty and medical perspective.

Michaela is an excellent practitioner, a highly knowledgeable and accomplished trainer and a genuinely warm and helpful person.


“I’d heard a lot of good things about Michaela and I wasn’t disappointed.”

” Michaela is a natural teacher, she immediately put me at ease and talked through everything step by step.”

Small training groups

It’s very important to train in small groups. Our groups never exceed three trainees.

This allows for a much more personal aesthetics training experience where you can really interact, ask questions and discuss as the course progresses. It’s also very important to get the right amount of time for supervised practice with the models, something that’s often lacking with larger groups.


“I would definitely recommend this course to others. I feel because it was a small group I felt involved and got to practice in everything. It felt personal.”

“I enjoyed the small learning group, my fellow trainee said that she thought it felt quite personal and I agree. I felt like I got so much more out of the class.”

Train in a working clinic

Your aesthetics training and practicals will take place in our beautiful clinic in Barnsley, South Yorkshire where you can get a real feel for a successful working environment. Everything needed for illustration, discussion and practical use is immediately at hand.


“It was a brilliant learning environment to be in.”

“Excellent first day of the four-day course. Made welcome, beautiful and comfortable venue.”

Accommodation included

We include accommodation with freshly-cooked breakfast at the excellent Holiday Inn, Barnsley. Here you can relax, get into the zone and discuss your training with your fellow students over breakfast or dinner without the disractions and duties of everyday life.

Hotel guests can unwind in the on-site Bannatynes Health Club with its spa and indoor pool. There’s a bar and a restaurant serving famous Barnsley chops and other local specialties.

The hotel is a 7 minute taxi ride (provided free) from our training clinic.



“Lovely welcoming atmosphere with comfortable and spacious rooms. Friendly staff who were able to answer any queries. Would highly recommend this hotel.”

Our treatment courses

We cover every aspect of each treatment, from consultation to aftercare, in a clear, concise and easy-to-understand way. Courses come with goody-bags and handbook versions of the presentation.

Michaela keeps everything interesting and the conversation flowing and our students feel free to interject with questions whenever they need to.

Our Three Course Package contains the following courses:

Chemical peels

We use the NeoStrata Pro System which gives you full control over the strength of peel used and the duration of exposure. In your goody-bag you’ll get a full size NeoStrata peel and after-care kit including:

  • Rejuvenating Peel 20%
  • Clarifying Peel 30%
  • Pre-peel Cleanser
  • Foaming Peel Neutraliser
  • Bionic Face Cream

This kit is enough for £1,500 – £1,800 worth of treatments.

Peels are a great thing to have in your toolbox, especially for young people with acne problems. A typical charge for a half hour treatment with this standard of peel is £50-£60.


You can address a whole range of issues including acne scarring, other scars, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and general skin tone. Microneedling is also one of the few treatments that actually induces new collagen growth.

We train you in electronic pen-microneedling which is not to be confused with the inferior roller. Pen Microneedling allows for the adjustment of puncture depths and is far gentler on the skin due to the needles entering and leaving the skin vertically.

In your goody-bag you’ll get:

  • An aluminium-bodied, cordless Microneedling pen kit
  • 10 needle heads (enough for £1,000 to £1,5000 worth of treatments)
  • A 250ml glass dispenser bottle of Hyaluronic Acid serum


We all know that skin looks its best when smooth and fresh but the vellus hair that we all have dulls this smoothness and interferes with makeup.

Dermaplaning is a simple yet highly-effective treatment that removes the fine vellus hair and the very top layer of dead skin cells from the face. This reveals baby-soft, smooth skin with an instant glow.

This is another great treatment to be able to offer as there is literally nothing else that can achieve these instant and profound results.

“The learning environment you’ve created is brilliant. I love that you encourage discussion and student interaction. I didn’t feel nervous or silly to ask any questions.”

Our Three Course Package

Our usual charges for our courses are:

Chemical Peels £600
Microneedling £600
Dermaplaning £450
Total £1,650
Our package price saving £400 £1,250


Our students travel to us once, get it all done in one go and return home with a portfolio of three new, profoundly-effective treatments to offer their clients.

“Going into this field of practice I really like that I’ll be able to offer my clients a range of treatments. I think Allison has got the training spot on.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can train to be an Aesthetics Practitioner?

Doctors, nurses, dentists, dental hygienists and dental nurses can take all of our courses.

Who will my trainer be?

Your trainer will be Allison Roberts.

Allison is Harley Street trained in advanced Botulinum Toxin and dermal filler techniques, a Board Advisor with the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses and a very successful aesthetics practitioner. Allison is also a great teacher with a long history of mentoring.

Allison creates a friendly, informal and interactive learning environment that really involves her students and helps them to absorb the courses well.

Why are the training groups so small?

We keep our training groups small for two reasons:

Firstly, it’s our experience that students in small groups are much more likely to interact both with Allison and each other. This creates a much better learning environment where we can be sure that our students are happy with, and have understood, each section of the course before moving on.

Secondly, it’s of the utmost importance that students feel they have had enough hands-on experience with the models. This can be difficult with larger groups.

Why train in a working clinic?

Training in a working clinic allows our students to get a feel for a successful working environment. It’s also important that everything needed for illustration, discussion and practical use is immediately to hand.

Our training takes place in beautiful surroundings at our clinic at the award-winning Vinery complex in Hudderfield.


What kind of accreditation do the courses carry?

All of our treatment courses are CPD certified and approved by Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance.

Why should I take the Six Course Package

Our Six Course Package includes:

  • Botox
  • Dermal Fillers
  • Lip Augmentation
  • Chemical Peels
  • Microneedling
  • Medical Aesthetics Practice Management

This package allows you to qualify in the five core treatments every rounded aesthetics practitioner should have and gain a huge amount of invaluable knowledge in practice management in one long weekend. It also provides an £800 saving over paying for the courses individually.

You can pay for our Six Course Package in 4 instalments over a year meaning you can be treating clients in all five treatments while you pay for your courses.

We believe our Six Course Package is the best and most affordable way to become a complete Aesthetics Practitioner.


Can I spread the cost of the Six Course Package?

Yes. The cost of the Six Course Package can be spread in 4 interest-free payments.

Upon booking


3 months after the course


6 months after the course


9 months after the course



Will I be ready to begin treating clients?

Yes. Our courses are designed to prepare you to begin treating clients straight away.

Do I need to be a prescriber?

No. Most aesthetic practitioners aren’t prescribers, other people do their prescribing for them.

Allison prescribes for several practitioners local to our clinics. The BACN keeps a list of willing prescribers which is searchable by area.

It’s also worth noting that only toxins and saline need to be acquired on prescription. Fillers, peels and microneedling supplies can be bought freely.

What is the purpose of the Practice Management course?

There’s no reason why a medical professional should know how to run a practice or a business and yet so many who are training in aesthetic treatments are being expected to do just that.

We offer the benefit of our experience in building a thriving aesthetics practice from scratch and cover a comprehensive range of subjects including:

  • The field of medical aesthetics
  • Transition from your current job
  • Support
  • Your approach to your clients
  • Client care
  • Reputation
  • Dealing with problems
  • Premises
  • Pricing
  • Prescriptions
  • Becoming a prescriber
  • Ordering
  • Consultation
  • Keeping records
  • Insurance
  • Complaints
  • Your accountant
  • VAT
  • Marketing
  • Your website
  • Starting up
  • Your business plan
  • Avoiding the early pitfalls
  • Growing your practice

This way we not only qualify you to practice but show you how to make a success of your practice too.

I'm travelling from outside of the area. What about accommodation?

Hotel accommodation with breakfast is provided free of charge to students travelling from outside of the area.

The excellent Holiday Inn is a short taxi ride (provided free by us) from our training clinic.

Do I need to bring models for my practicals?

No. We provide all of the models for demonstrations and the student live procedures.

Will I get any support after training?

Yes. We love our students to stay in touch with us and with each other.

All of our students are given our mobile numbers and both Allison and Don are always available for help and advice.

In addition to this we have our private Facebook group where practitioners who qualify with us can share news, tips, advice and experiences. This really helps new practitioners to grow in knowledge and confidence.

Are all training courses the same?

Definitely not. There are some important considerations.

  1. Who is my trainer?

Is your trainer a working practitioner with everyday experience of clients, new treatments and techniques?

Is your trainer an experienced mentor, friendly and approachable?


  1. What size are the training groups?

Are the training groups small enough for you to feel confident to engage properly with your trainer and ask questions?

Are the training groups small enough for you to get sufficient practice with the models?


  1. Does the theory training take place live on the day?

It seems unbelievable but there are some courses available that expect you to learn the theory at home on your own and have a quick “refresh” session on the day before going straight on to injecting the models.

There’s so much more to be gained from a live delivery of the theory along with chatting and interacting with your trainer.


  1. Are the courses CPD certified?

CPD certification means that the course has reached CPD’s standards in the delivery of the training.

If the course isn’t CPD certified there is probably a good reason. This can often be that the theory is not delivered live to save time or that the trainer is not properly qualified.


  1. Do the courses take place in a successful working clinic?

In a working clinic you have everything to hand for illustration and demonstration. It also helps you to get a good feel for how your clinic can be.


  1. Is hotel accommodation included in the price?

This can make a big difference to overall cost and takes the risk out of trying to choose a good hotel.


  1. Can I spread the cost?

Spreading the cost really helps to make the courses affordable and gives you the opportunity to pay for them from the profit you make doing treatments.


  1. Can I save time and money by grouping courses?

It’s entirely possible to save time and money without sacrificing any quality when grouping courses together.

There are several elements of learning that appear in more than one course (for instance we learn about skin-aging in Botox, Dermal Fillers, Microneedling and Peels and we learn about Hyaluronic Acid fillers in Dermal Fillers and Lip Augmentation). By grouping courses together over 2,3 or 4 days we can eliminate the need for repetition.

This is how we can offer an £800 saving on our Six Course Package.


  1. Is there a Practice Management course?

We believe this is very important.

Knowing how to treat clients is one thing, knowing how to run a thriving practice is another thing entirely.


  1. Are models for the practicals provided?

Being let down by your model can ruin your training. It’s always best if your trainers supply the models.


  1. Is any post-training support offered?

It’s not enough to qualify a new practitioner and push them out of the door. Especially in the early months you need to feel that you have someone to support you 24/7 and answer your questions.

The most important thing about training is not just getting a certificate, it’s becoming competent and confident enough to begin treating clients, move forward and thrive in this field.

Do I need the Level 7 qualification?

No. Despite what many people involved in delivering the course would like you to think Level 7 is purely academic and unnecessary.
