Rewarding career options,
As the beauty sector evolved into the technology led industry that it is today, opportunities for cosmetic nurses, midwives, and dentists opened up as well.
Aesthetic or cosmetic nurses have a solid career path, Botulinum & Filler injectables, TCA Facial Peels, PRP Therapy, Micro-Needling and Laser treatments are just some of the tools available. Nurses are in high demand for the entire beauty/aesthetics industry.
Our dermal filler training course is designed specifically for nurses, and taught by doctors that practice aesthetic medicine. We only train Nurses, Doctors and Dentists in injectable cosmetics. Our course for nurses is formed from the Level 7 curriculum and offers in-depth theory plus practical training. The theory is delivered through our virtual learning environment, meaning you study at your pace in your time. The course is delivered first through an introduction day with demonstrations plus practical training on silicon heads. Then you go off and study the theory side of the course. Once you are ready you return back to ATAI for your practical training on models provided by ATAI.

Laser & Light
Even though many nurses wish to pursue injectable cosmetics, a well-rounded aesthetics education is paramount to career options and longevity. Starting off with a Diploma in Laser & Light aids in broadening the skillset for multiple treatments.
Skin rejuvenation underpins the entire aesthetic sector. With nurses having the opportunity to extend their skills beyond very superficial peels, it offers unique business and employment options.
Micro-needling has gone from strength to strength and many clinics have forgone laser resurfacing for skin needling. With advancements in medical devices similar to the INNOPen, while also offering the ability combine the treatment with therapies like PRP, for example, makes micro-needling a mainstay therapy in the fight against premature ageing. Moreover, it is also an effective treatment for:
- Acne scarring
- Post-traumatic burns and scar alopecia
- Post-surgical scars
- Stretch Marks
Deep theory & practical hands-on
Dermal Science is an emerging tenet of study in the aesthetics sector once only the realm of dermatologists and doctor-led fields. Comprehensive units covering the theoretical principles and the practical knowledge of dermal therapy procedures to form a strong foundation for clinical excellence.
