Harley Academy Aesthetics Clinic raising standards
Harley Academy’s qualification is making waves in the industry by revolutionising the way in which injectable procedures are taught to cosmetic practitioners. The Level 7 Qualification: Injectables in Aesthetic Medicine, was designed by the Academy to provide in-depth, advanced education in injectable treatments, thus producing highly qualified and sought-after practitioners from medicine, dentistry and nursing backgrounds.
As well as teaching practical techniques, the course also focuses on ethics and law in aesthetic medicine, cosmetic psychology and skin science. With the Level 7 in Injectables, Harley Academy’s key objective is to improve patients’ safety; both from a practical and a psychological point of view.
Harley Academy’s training is unique. Students never learn simply by watching others carry out a procedure: each student is required to practise supervised injectable techniques on at least 30 patients, who are provided by the Academy. The Level 7 can be carried out flexibly so as to accommodate busy schedules and the course is future-proofed as it has been carefully designed to protect the practitioner against changes to regulations, and meets all current guidelines. Uniquely, the examination of trainees is carried out by an external body. Harley Academy currently has an encouraging pass rate of 75-80%.
Harley Academy founder, Dr Tristan Mehta, launched the Academy in order to lift the level of aesthetic training within the UK: “In my opinion, we owe it to our patients to provide more than just the procedure. A specialist truly understands their subject matter, from the psychological drivers to the physical and mental effect of the procedure and the aftercare. At Harley Academy, we provide a comprehensive and systematic education in injectable treatments to ensure that we’re covering the speciality in-depth, in order to develop a thriving and much sought-after community of medical professionals.”
Harley Academy is the first Ofqual-regulated, JCCP-approved education provider and has the unique privilege of providing GMC revalidation and appraisal services for doctors studying Level 7 Qualification in Injectables.
