“This was another training course with Dr Joney De Souza which I thoroughly enjoyed. He is an incredibly knowledgeable doctor with many years’ experience in aesthetic industry and he is happy to share all pros and cons of procedures.

His passion for making you a really good professional is visible from the beginning to the end of the training. I started my aesthetic training somewhere else but later on had one at Wigmore. I stayed with them to the advanced level and I have never regretted it.

Especially when I hear what students from others academies are saying. If you want to be good, be trained by Masters. Once again Thank you, Wigmore.” – Ewa Simelane RNP, Crystal Clinic, Essex

“Great staff. Nice venue. Excellent handouts. Would recommend to others.” – Sharon Sherriff RNP, Orchid Aesthetics Ltd, Sunderland

“He was amazing, and a lovely guy.” – Susan Ellwood RNP, The Southlands Centre, Middlesborough


The Advanced Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®) for Facial Aesthetics and Dermal Fillers training course delivered by Dr Joney De Souza. This is an intensive and educational hands-on day for any aesthetic professional who wants to go beyond the basic toxins and fillers stage. The course deals with Hyperhidrosis (underarms, face, hands, feet), Tear Troughs, Periocular, Mid Face, Nose, Lip Lines, Chin, Neck, Mouth, Cheek Augmentation and Brow Projection.

Our aim is to give you the skills to assess your own patients. As there are so many variations on individual anatomy, we review which products to use and at what depth of dermis, before going through the most frequently requested anatomical areas, such as tear troughs advanced lip techniques (tracking, volume), cheeks, chin, mental crease and brow volume. We also have a discussion on areas where hyaluronic acid is not the product of choice, but do not delve in any mid cheek, peri-auricular or temple work, as those are covered in other courses.

To maximise hands-on time during these somewhat intense sessions, we will send you the course slides prior to your training day and request a prompt start. You are encouraged to bring your own models, but please inform us in advance if you will. Class size is a maximum of six.

NOTE: You must have previous experience of treating at least 10 – 20 patients in toxins and/or fillers.


Both courses will cover the following topics:

-          Basic face anatomy for injections and risk areas

-          Dos and Don’ts (good practice, health and safety, consenting)

-          Selecting the right product, volume and injection technique

-          Analysis of areas (ageing process and dynamic lines, treatment challenges)

-          Complications and their management

-          Case studies – delegates to select one patient that they have treated or that they would like to treat and have found challenging (bring picture on USB stick or the patient as a model)

-          The practical sessions will have 2 or 3 couches depending on numbers, with each delegate going through the model assessment, preparation and injection process with the trainer.

GMC/GDC/NMC Registration Number (Within EU). Please contact us if you are outside of the EU but have relevant professional qualifications.

Models for practical sessions

If you are unable to provide a model, we will endeavour to find one on your behalf. However, we strongly encourage that you provide a model. Challenging cases are most welcome.

Important Notes & Experience

Please make sure you have sufficient experience to attend this course

We will email you a brief questionnaire before you are admitted:

  • You must display full control of the injectable used, at least in the areas that you were trained on (e.g. fillers – lips and nasolabial folds)
  • You should have been actively injecting for the six months prior to the course
  • You must have previous experience of treating at least 10 – 20 patients in toxins and/or fillers.

The dermal filler session offers training to two different sets of people depending on knowledge and expertise. If you are an established practitioner with plenty of hands-on experience and experience of using cannulas, then we would suggest you attend a session that includes treatment of Tear Troughs.

On the other hand, if you are not quite at that level we would advise you attend a session that does NOT include Tear Troughs. Treatment of this area requires a high level of skill and experience of injectables, and for that reason we will not risk the safety of the live models.
