START YOUR JOURNEY

Becoming a cosmetic model

First things first, a cosmetic model is what we call our clients who visit The Academy Clinic.

No need to panic, you won’t be photographed for the cover of Vogue upon arrival. It’s a term widely used in the aesthetics industry – and we liked it so much we’ve made it part of our everyday vocabulary.

WHO CAN BE A COSMETIC MODEL?

At The Academy Clinic, we welcome everyone 18 years or older for cosmetic dermatology treatments. For injectables and to begin your journey towards becoming a cosmetic model, the minimum age is 21.

We only ask that you are suitable for the treatment you desire – which will be discussed in your consultation prior to treatment. This is to ensure we maintain an appropriate, ethical, and sustainable treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

WHO WILL BE TREATING YOU?

 

You will only ever be treated by a registered medical professional. All our trainees are doctors, dentists, nurses and clinical pharmacists, closely supervised by our aesthetics experts. You also have the choice to be treated by a senior trainer. To enable you to make the right decision on which treatment plan is most suitable for you, we have a selection of tiered pricing options, BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD and DEMO.

Bronze
When you opt for our Bronze tier, your treatment will be carried out by a registered medical professional who is undergoing training with us. Rest assured, their work will be closely supervised and guided by our experienced trainers. During this appointment, it’s important to note that other students will be present to observe the treatment, and in some cases, they might also participate.
Silver
Choosing our SILVER option means your treatment will be administered by a registered medical professional – and each treatment will be performed under the direct supervision of an expert practitioner. Your treatment will always also be performed by just one practitioner. ​​For teaching purposes, occasionally more than one trainee may be present during your treatment to observe.

Gold
When you select our GOLD option, your treatment will be administered by a registered medical professional who has been specially selected by one of our expert practitioners to build their aesthetics portfolio. Your treatment will always be performed without any trainees present.
Demo
Our DEMO option guarantees treatment from our leading aesthetics experts. Your treatment will be administered by one of our lead practitioners while they teach a small group of medical trainees. These trainees will be present in person (or via live stream) to ensure the exceptionally high standards of our professionals continues to develop and grow.

OUR ANSWERS TO YOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FOR INJECTABLES

    Each and every cosmetic model is different and unique. So, any aftercare advice is best given upon consultation. However, depending on the individual and treatment type, most cosmetic injectable treatments require very little recovery time.
