One course many options
A brand agnostic approach to tissue stimulators using market leading technology and brands. Cellular level regeneration is not new, Sculptra® (previously branded as New-Fill®) was launched in the U.K. in 2000. Injectable Tissue (Collagen) Stimulators such as Sunekos, PROHFILO & Ellanse providing a visible result in treatment outcome.
In Ireland especially many nurses and doctors do not wish to provide dermal filler procedures. Other training courses, the one day variety require a background in injectables due to the short nature of the course. Our foundation level course provides the depth of knowledge required to practice with confidence and competence.
Dermal filler acts as an implant, filling wrinkles, folds and depressions in the skin. Tissue stimulators & skin boosters use combinations of mechanical damage and injectable product to stimulate new collagen and elastin production.
Tissue stimulators & skin boosters
Both are buzz words at the moment and have been for some time. On the injectable side, PROFHILO, Ellanse & Sunekos would be the most popular with variations on application. Mechanical stimulation such as medical micro needling stimulates collagen and elastin production through a wound response. Platelet rich plasma is similar with the introduction of plasma to the wound response.
All procedures and product set out to.
Reduce skin laxity – Environmental factors that contribute to skin laxity include ageing, genetics, stress, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, and smoking which reduce the collagen and elastin in our skin.
Increase skin elasticity – Skin elasticity is skin’s ability to stretch and return to its original shape. Loss of skin elasticity is known as elastosis. Elastosis causes skin to look saggy, crinkled, or leathery. Areas of the skin exposed to the sun can get solar elastosis.
Restore volume – As we age and lose collagen and elastin the skin starts to sag, a hollowing out of facial areas begins as we lose volume from the facial fat pads. Injectable collagen stimulators aid in the restoring of facial volume loss and often incorporated with traditional dermal filler.
Skin tightening – Through complimentary therapy such as combining micro needling, PRP, and traditional injectables a more youthful appearance can be achieved with immediate visible results in many cases.
Collagen production – Collagen is such a central building block of the body, contained in bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth. Etymology of the word is Greek, “kólla,” which very aptly means “glue” there are at least 16 types of collagen in the body we concern ourselves with the four main types, type I, II, III, and IV.
Regeneration, that is the end goal of transdermal therapy, making the body better at its job as we age. One of the newer buzz words to surface is ‘3D biomodelling’ due to the overall inside out rejuvenation that tissue stimulators provide through transdermal therapy.
Suitable for multiple areas

How much is the tissue stimulator course?
The course is €1995 and covers multiple techniques and brands, not comparable to one day courses on offer.
Who is able to attend this course?
Nurses and doctors can attend this course. We only accept NMBI registered nurses, IMC & Dental Council Ireland, doctors with current valid registration.
I am a beauty therapist can I attend this course?
Sorry due to insurance protocols and the problem of beauty therapy being an unregulated qualification, we are unable to facilitate training for beauty therapists.
Is there a practical component to the course?
Yes, the course is structured with the delivery of theory of approximately 113 hours through our virtual learning environment. In addition, the practical days see you observing injectable treatment plus hands-on administering of dermal fillers. All our courses have a strong focus on practical skills.
Do I need to bring my own model?
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.
