Brush up on your skills this autumn with our exciting new training courses, all designed to add real value to your clinic or practice


Recently launched, this course offers a multi-layered and multi-compartmental approach to achieving a refreshed look with ReLife R Technique filler—specifically designed to target the lateral part of the face which is often overlooked in practice. The approach uses fillers of differing viscosity in the temporal region, zygoma and the lateral temporal cheek fat to help support ligaments in the face. This technique is suitable for patients with volume loss in the lateral compartment and is suitable for all ages, all gender permutations and skin types. The course will encompass anatomy, theory and patient selection. With a maximum class size of six delegates, key learning objectives include: best practice—patient selection; reviewing facial anatomy; practical key injection points; how to perform the R Technique— theory and practical; hyaluronic acid filler rheology, and recognising and managing potential complications.

Attendees will learn an injecting technique focusing on an area that is often overlooked in practice—the lateral part of the face. Delegates will learn best practice in patient selection and master a skillset to offer patients the best procedure and personalised treatment over prescriptive.

This course is open to healthcare professionals only—doctors, aesthetic nurses and dentists, visit to book.


This recently launched course is an intensive whistle-stop tour into facial anatomy for medical aesthetics. We are often taught ‘anatomy’ as an afterthought in medical aesthetics, and it is often superficial at best—and at worst is over simplified. However, one thing is for sure, anatomy must be respected and appreciated. This course will rewire your knowledge, starting from basic principles
to high level expertise to ensure you stay on the cutting edge.

With a maximum class size of 10 delegates, key objectives include: the five layers of the face; the differing layers across the face (temples, forehead, midface, lower face); principles of facial ligaments and facial compartments; anatomy of the deep and superficial fat compartments; basic osteology of the facial skeleton; major foramen of the facial skeleton and their contents; nervous anatomy including sensory, motor and autonomic supplies; the arterial supply and venous drainage, and clinically revenant anatomy to medical aesthetic complications.

New and intermediate injectors will gain exposure to high level anatomical concepts, and can make more informed clinical decisions for patients. The course will navigate clinically relevant and pertinent anatomy to ensure treatments are as safe and efficacious as possible.

This training is only for registered medics, including doctors, dentists and nurses, visit to book.


Wigmore Medical has partnered with Dr Rita Poddar who has over 4000 polydioxanone (PDO) treatments under her belt, to offer an introductory PDO Threads training course, designed to ease practitioners into this treatment area. This foundation level threads course will focus specifically on the use of basic (aka mono) and screw threads in the mid, lower and peri-oral areas. It has been designed to give delegates an in-depth understanding of why there are different types and lengths of threads, and what to use where to optimise skin rejuvenation and definition.

Dr Poddar will demonstrate on a live model, covering appropriate thread selection and insertion techniques, after which each delegate will be able to practice on their own model and under guided supervision from the trainer. In collaboration with Croma Pharma, this training uses the Princess threads range, with a focus on the basic mono threads for rejuvenating and supporting the skin. Post-training support will be available, as well as additional training opportunities for those looking to further advance their knowledge and experience.

Limited to a maximum of four delegates, the comprehensive half day programme will cover the history and theory of threads, including essential anatomical knowledge, assessment and best practice and techniques, as well as managing expectations and hands-on practice. Complication avoidance and management, and post treatment management will also be covered.

Delegates must pass the theory training Q&A assessment with at least a 75% pass mark before commencing the practical session. Delegates are required to bring their own model (a video consultation will be arranged to assess suitability).

This course is designed for proficient aesthetic practitioners looking to offer additional treatments beyond toxins, fillers and skin boosters. If you have often thought about learning how to use PDO threads but then decided against it as the prospect was too daunting—this is the course for you!

Our CPD certified course is open to doctors, dentists and nurses who are new to thread lifting and looking to acquire the foundation knowledge and basic hands-on practice. It’s also suitable for those wanting a refresher in a relaxed, peer to peer environment.
