Aesthetic regulations may change, Empire have you covered.

The Nervousness Surrounding Aesthetics...

The Aesthetics industry has grown exponentially over the last 10 years becoming one of the fastest growers worldwide boasting over £50 billion pound of market wealth covering both Medical and Non-Medical Aestheticians. 

Despite such growth there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the information aspiring aestheticians often receive regarding what can and can't be achieved as an Aesthetics professional. At Empire Academy of Aesthetics, as well as training thousands of amazing students every year, we strive to debunk any false information surrounding such an amazing industry, allowing people to thrive in such an independent profession. 

The biggest misconception within the Aesthetics industry is that you need to be a medic to start a career in injectables including the likes of Dermal Fillers and Anti Wrinkle Injections. Not only is such narrative completely untrue but it can sometimes deter students from training not just with us here at Empire, but in the industry in general.

A large proportion of students who train in the industry are in fact non medics, speaking from experience with our own academy, have gone on to become extremely successful in the industry, creating successful business and working for large Aesthetics organisations. Moulding such independent and successful individuals is something we specialise in here at Empire Academy of Aesthetics by offering the highest quality training you can imagine from an Aesthetics academy.

With tutors boasting decades of experience, 5 star facilities and equipment, in-depth course study material and fantastic relationships with industry leading insurers. All of which are essential to allow students to qualify feeling confident and more importantly offering safe practise to their clients. 

Granted, there are some rogue Aestheticians out there who can ruin it for other people in the industry but it is important not to tarnish the majority due to the actions of individuals. In the most part, Aestheticians are professional hard working individuals are highly motivated to offer the best possible service to their clients in the safest manner possible. 

On a regular basis, we get people coming to us to discuss how they trained with other academies and left feeling nervous, confused and with a lack of confidence when it comes to the treatments they learnt. It truly cannot be stressed enough the importance of choosing the right academy of your training. Aesthetics boasts a host of truly amazing invasive products that cannot be taken lightly when administering. The training that is received in Aesthetics will reflect on the treatments that is provided to clients, where safety is of the upmost importance.
