How to Become an Aesthetic Practitioner

New research from LaingBuisson suggests that while demand for cosmetic surgery in the UK has softened since the global economic crisis and PIP scandal, non-surgical treatments are booming. Indeed, with millennials being more open to nonsurgical cosmetic procedures than any other generation group, a career in aesthetics is the right move for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and, why not, dentists…

What is Aesthetic Medicine? Facts and Figures

Aesthetic Medicine comprises all medical procedures that are aimed at improving the physical appearance and satisfaction of the patient, using non-invasive to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.

The UK cosmetic surgery market is estimated at around £273m (US$345m) in 2017. However, estimates for the non-surgical market suggest it could be worth in excess of £3bn (US$3.8bn) within the next five years.

Dental practitioners are uniquely positioned to take advantage of this demand as aesthetic practice can easily be introduced within existing practice and compliments cosmetic dental work that is widely practiced by dental professionals.

“Dental practitioners represent one of the best suited classes of qualified professionals to train in Botulinum Toxin and fillers,” the leading cosmetic training body, Derma Institute says.
