Medical aesthetics offers a self-employed or private employment option which can work well alongside NHS commitments, allowing people to move gradually into a new career path without the risk involved in a full move straightaway.

Manchester-based SkinViva Training has seen a 136% increase in interest for its professional cosmetic treatment training courses in the first week of January 2015 – more than double the level seen a year ago. The courses are designed for medical professionals (such as Doctors, Dentists, Paramedics, Midwives and Nurses) to learn additional skills so that they can carry out anti-ageing injections safely and with a good aesthetic result.

Business Development Director, Lee Cottrill, explains:

“The January return to work is a time when many people reconsider whether they’re gainfully employed doing something they love. It’s a time when many consider alternative uses of their skills for a new career.”

“This year we’ve seen a remarkable surge in interest for our training courses and we attribute this in part to media exposure around ongoing changes to ways of working in the health service, prompting medical professionals to pursue career development options that they may have been considering for a long time.”

“However, a greater consideration for our course delegates is that working in the cosmetic treatments industry has a number of very appealing benefits; allowing them to learn new and more creative skills to complement their medical knowledge, as well as providing a good financial reward with more independence and freedom to manage their own work commitments.”

The world of medical aesthetics appeals on a number of levels.

Firstly, it is potentially lucrative, as good practitioners can earn good money from offering cosmetic treatments. It is a growth market, which is increasing in consumer demand, yet with media information, clients are becoming more demanding about the calibre of the practitioner and choosing medically qualified injectors. While there is no regulation as yet, it seems likely that in future cosmetic practitioners will have to be properly qualified and highly likely that skilled, qualified medical professionals will be well placed to take advantage of future changes in the sector.

Working as an aesthetic doctor, dentist or nurse also provides an attractive level of independence, where people can manage their own work time. It is a popular part time or flexible working option and many aesthetic practitioners continue their existing commitments alongside their aesthetic work.

One of the great appeals of the industry is that it is enjoyable. The use of artistic skills and talents, plus working closely with patients to help them improve their appearance and feel better about themselves is very rewarding work. Yet it also builds upon hard-earned medical qualifications with new skills.

Lee Cottrill continues:

“We’re delighted to work with our delegates, introducing them to the world of cosmetic treatments and helping them to develop their skills and knowledge to be safe and effective practitioners.”

“Medical aesthetics offers a self-employed or private employment option which can work well alongside NHS commitments, allowing people to move gradually into a new career path without the risk involved in a full move straightaway.”

“As a Company, we welcome the surge in demand and are gearing up for a busy year of training courses from introductory to advanced level, catering for the demand from medics who wish to develop their creative skills to work in non-surgical treatments.”

The SkinViva Training School was established in 2013 in order to teach best practice skills and techniques to other medical professionals. It offers specialist, professionally-led clinical training in non-surgical cosmetic treatments to Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Midwives and Dentists wishing to develop high standards of cosmetic injection skills and knowledge.
