Train With Us

A leading advocate for industry regulation, safety and training, The Face Place Academy is proud to offer premium, best-practice training for doctors, dentists and nurses in the cosmetic medicine industry.

The Face Place Academy team has more than 20 years’ experience working with aesthetic injectables. Back in 2002, Dr Cat trained with Dr Jean and Dr Alastair Carruthers, the ‘pioneers’ of BotoxⓇ for cosmetic treatment.

Since then she has been dedicated to her own pursuit of knowledge and training in this field.

Today Dr Cat is a global trainer for the Vampire®️ treatment series, and is also part of the Allergan Training Faculty, training healthcare professionals in Botox®️ and Juvederm®️ along with several advisory boards.

Since then, we’ve been fortunate to have other team members selected as trainers for their respected fields.

Dr Cat’s commitment to training was at first something she shared only with her handpicked team of medical injectors at The Face Place, but it’s now something she is proud to offer to the wider industry.
