Our anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections course is for doctors and dentists. Derived from the Level 7 injectables for aesthetic medicine it provides a more in-depth curriculum than any other course on offer in Ireland. For practitioners wanting to continue their education into the fully fledged Level 7 qualification (available 2019), we have RPL in place, so your investment is not in vain. If you are a nurse in Ireland we have a course specifically tailored to your needs, please view the dermal filler course for nurses.

How much is the anti-wrinkle and dermal filler course?

Who is able to attend this course?
The course is open to degree holding Level 6 doctors and dentists. Nurses are also able to take this course but please be aware you are still unable to administer anti-wrinkle injections in the Republic of Ireland.
I am a beauty therapist can I attend this course?
No, due to the unregulated nature of beauty therapists and insurance protocols plus the legislation around prescription medicine beauty therapists are unable to study this course. Can I just enrol in the theory aspect of the course then? Sorry, no that is also not possible. We see that as encouraging rogue practices in the industry.
Is there a practical component to this course?
Yes, the course is structured with the delivery of theory of approximately 190 hours through our virtual learning environment. In addition, the practical day sees you observing injectable treatment plus hands-on administering of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. All our courses have a strong focus on practical skills.

No, we provide all models for the practical component of the course. If you do wish to bring along a model, please let us know at the time of enrolment.
Do I need my own insurance?
No, our insurance covers you on the practical treatment days. Once you have qualified you will, of course, need to organise your insurance to practice.
Can I practice after attending this course?
Yes, if you pass all the units in anti-wrinkle and dermal filler course for doctors and dentists it complies with all insurance needs.
ATAI was formed with one primary goal in mind, to provide the highest level theory and practical based education for the aesthetics sector. Our unquivering determination to ensure the best possible outcome for the general public starts in the education treatment pathway. We are an open and transparent vested interest group that believes injectable cosmetics have no place being taught to unregulated practitioners. Unregulated practitioners may not have the same training or accountability as regulated health professionals. Members of the public who choose to use the services of an unregulated practitioner have no way of holding that individual accountable for the care or services received. Training providers that facilitate training to an unregulated practitioner may not be breaking the law; however, it is unethical. Ultimately it is the general public that is the loser, often emotionally and or physically scared for life and as such, we disparage any organisation that encourages or upholds this practice.
