Our Story


Empire Academy of Aesthetics has established itself as the premier training institution for aesthetics practitioners in the UK, offering a comprehensive range of sought-after injectables and skincare courses. Originally starting as "Liverpool & Chester Lipo," our clinic provided the same treatments that we now teach, drawing on over a decade of specialised industry experience to meet the evolving needs of our students and their careers in aesthetics.

Initially, we launched as a standalone academy in Chester, focusing primarily on lip augmentation courses for the North West of England. Lip injecting has always been our core offering, and we have continuously enhanced these courses year after year.

In 2018, we expanded by opening a second academy within our Rodney Street premises, previously occupied by Liverpool Lipo. Our commitment to excellence led us to broaden our course offerings, ensuring our students could provide a diverse range of treatments to their clients. We take pride in the fact that over 90% of our trainees return for additional courses, a testament to our friendly approach, professionalism, and top-tier educational facilities.

2019 marked a significant milestone with the establishment of a valuable partnership with our long-standing insurance providers, Insync, who have supported our aesthetic ventures to this day. That year, we introduced the highly acclaimed Fast Track to Aesthetics course, now known as Pathway to Aesthetics. As the first UK academy to offer this program, we set a new entryway into the field of aesthetics for complete beginners, combining our foundational courses in basic dermal fillers and foundation toxins. We continually evolve these offerings based on current trends and demands, ensuring our courses remain relevant and sought-after.

The growth continued into 2020 with the opening of an exceptional facility in Warrington. This new location not only allowed us to offer greater scheduling flexibility but also featured state-of-the-art amenities including new treatment beds and top-of-the-line equipment, all set in a spacious environment with ample reception areas and classrooms.

A particularly proud moment for us was forging a significant new partnership with a Dublin-based insurer, extending our reach to include both medical and non-medical practitioners from the Republic of Ireland. We are now uniquely positioned to offer popular treatments like fillers, Profhilo, and toxins to students from Ireland, many of whom travel to our Liverpool academy and return home ready to embark on their own careers in aesthetics.

At Empire Academy of Aesthetics, we are dedicated to fostering the next generation of aesthetics professionals, providing them with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities to succeed in this dynamic industry.
