To cater to the varied interests of our students, the course encompasses both non-surgical aesthetic treatments and surgical aesthetic procedures. Non-surgical treatments are gaining traction due to their minimally invasive nature, quick recovery time, and cost-effectiveness. On the other hand, surgical procedures, while more invasive, can offer longer-lasting and more transformative results. Our Medical Aesthetics Diploma ensures students get a balanced view of both domains.

For those passionate about enhancing the natural glow of the skin, the section on skin rejuvenation techniques will be of immense value. The methods taught here target the revitalisation of the skin, bringing out its inherent vibrancy and youthfulness.

Scars and stretch marks often cause distress, affecting individuals’ confidence. The Medical Aesthetics Diploma course introduces techniques to minimize these imperfections, ensuring students can offer solace and solutions to those seeking a clearer skin appearance.

Hair plays a significant role in shaping our overall appearance. Hence, the course takes a keen interest in imparting knowledge on both hair restoration for those grappling with hair loss, and hair removal techniques for those seeking smoother, hair-free skin.

The world of aesthetics is not just skin deep. Aesthetic dentistry has become a prominent part of the beauty industry. This course introduces learners to the nuances of aesthetic dentistry, ensuring a holistic approach to the world of medical aesthetics.

An essential part of any profession is understanding its commercial aspect. The Business of Medical Aesthetics section of the course offers guidance on how to set up, manage, and grow a successful practice. Students will learn the ropes of business management, marketing, client relations, and more, ensuring they’re well-prepared to venture out on their own or elevate existing establishments.

Lastly, as with any evolving field, it’s crucial to stay ahead of the curve. The Future of Medical Aesthetics section offers a glimpse into the innovations and trends poised to shape this industry in the coming years. By acquainting themselves with future directions, students will be better prepared to adapt, innovate, and thrive in their professional journey.

In essence, the Medical Aesthetics Diploma online course offers a robust, comprehensive, and future-ready curriculum for aspiring professionals.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
