Welcome to the Academy for Facial Aesthetics (AFFA
Botox and dermal filler training courses in Birmingham.
We are a medical aesthetic training provider that has a committed philosophy to our training courses.
This will enable you to launch your new career with confidence or boost your existing knowledge with our advanced courses. There is an emphasis on small groups or individual training based on safe practices and knowledge.
We believe this will allow you to go out and develop your new career in facial aesthetics with confidence following your training.
It will also help those of you who have previously attended other courses. Many of our delegates arrive with a lack of confidence from previuos training. We are then pleased to be able to inspire them to practice with confidence.
Dr Andrew Greenwood BDS Dental Surgeon
Botox and dermal filler training courses in Birmingham
We keep the group numbers small and employ a relaxed attitude to teaching. This we believe will give you the confidence to go out and put into practice everything that you learn on our courses
The aesthetic procedures you are learning are medical procedures and as such carry some form of risk. So, we build our courses around training you in the safest techniques possible
Sound Anatomical Knowledge
A sound understanding of anatomy is esential to practicing safe and effective aesthetic treatments. Therefore, we make sure that this is a fundamental part of our training
Your trainer Dr Andrew Greenwood BDS has a wealth of experience. He has been teaching and lecturing both here and with global pharmaceutoical companies for many years.
Hands on Practical
We underpin our courses with the sound knowledge of anatomy and safe treatment methods. However, you will have the opportunity for extensive hands on practical experience under the guidance of Dr Andrew Greenwood
All medical procedures carry a risk of complications. So, it is important that you know how to deal with any that may arise. This is why we include this section in our courses.

Advanced Dermal Filler
Lip and Perioral
This course is for those with previous dermal filler experience and wish to improve their confidence and learn new techniques. Lips must never be looked at alone. They are part of the peroral area and this course will teach you to look at the lip and perioral area as a whole.
The aesthetic masterclass is for those experienced practitioners who wish to expand their understanding and knowledge even further. It will combine the use of both toxin, dermal filler and often other modalities in treating patients. You will then enable you to create your own masterpieces.
