Clinical aesthetics is an industry booming. What with all the new technology and machines, and more and more clinics and medical centres offering laser and light treatments, injectables, fillers and all other types of appearance enhancing options, this is fast becoming a career choice with plenty of benefits.
Whether you are already in the industry and want to further your training, or you are a clinician/physician looking to install a machine in your workplace, or even if you just love all things beauty and would like to pursue a career in the field; studying the right course and gaining the right qualifications can mean all the difference to your success.
We love the Australian College of Health and Wellness, not least because they offer one of the only government accredited higher education courses specialising in the discipline of health science focusing on educating professionals for the health and wellness industries. Their Bachelor of Applied Health Science in Clinical Aesthetics is an excellent course that covers so many aspects of the non-surgical technologies, and we fully support their contribution to ensuring that Australia has such a wonderful training option for an industry that is still catching up with itself when it comes to regulations and training expectations.
