Dermal Fillers & Botox – Medics vs Non-Medics

Here at eclipse school of beauty and aesthetics, we pride ourselves on offering the very best training courses on Dermal Fillers and Botox as well as Profhilo and Sunekos. We do both foundation and advanced training courses at our academy. We take health and safety along with client safety at the very top of our priority. Injecting comes second to this.

Non-medics are often frowned upon by the medic community when it comes to dermal filler and Anti wrinkle injections training and treatments. However is this really something that should be the case?

Two of our aesthetic instructors Adam and Annie take on the question in their new podcast series.

  • Are all non-medics who have received training in Anti wrinkle injections and fillers a risk?
  • Is it possible that non-medics can be just as competent as medics with fillers and Anti wrinkle injections?
  • Is there a difference between non-medic Anti wrinkle injections and filler training and medic training?
  • Can non-medics who receive Anti wrinkle injections and filler training really get to a level where they can safely administer the treatments?
  • Is the correct support available to non-medics from medics with regards fillers and Anti wrinkle injections?

These are just one of the questions that are raised in this topical and current podcast but two people who are extremely passionate about the treatments and the industry in general.

What is your opinion? Leave us a comment down below and let us know how you feel about this interesting subject.

We believe at eclipse that we can offer a training course for both Anti wrinkle injections and fillers as well as other treatments like profhilo and sunekos. That we can offer a place that both medics and non-medics can go to learn in an environment that will enable them to go about their career in aesthetics in an ethical and moralistic way. With both competence and confidence.

Our Anti wrinkle injections and filler training courses are thought out and designed by extremely experienced professionals with huge amounts of knowledge. Our facilities are of the highest standard and are available in multiple locations around the southeast of England. Brentwood Essex. Bexleyheath London / Kent. Ashford Kent.

We use high-quality products from companies like Allergen. Revolax. Juvederm. Profhilo. and more. our consumables are also high quality from Clinell, BD microfine, Teoxane and more.

We work with reputable suppliers for all of our products and there would never be any sign of grey imports or corner-cutting at any stage. Surely with all of this added together, we can offer a filler and Anti wrinkle injections training offering that will enable people to become masters of aesthetics and go about their career in the correct way.

Many techniques are taught. Including on our advanced lip filler course. The very popular Russian lip training Technique. We use cannulas on the advanced course for a very different way of administering filler products. When we teach our training courses we spend a lot of time on health and safety.

Hygiene and most importantly facial anatomy. Not just where the various veins, arteries, and nerves travel but more importantly the depth they sit at. This aids us in being safe and always working across the correct plane under the skin to avoid any unnecessary complications and to be as safe as possible.

Complications are often neglected and we spend a lot of time covering off how we diagnose our clients. How we treat them in the event of a problem. And how we then look after them after the fact.

Consultations and setting expectations is a huge part of our Anti wrinkle injections and filler training. If a client expects a result which is unobtainable they are always going to have a negative experience. On the flip side of this its also very easy to scare a client with all of the details of the procedure and its important to help them understand how we overcome a lot of the risk with incredible knowledge, experience and safety precautions such as aspiration.

A lot of the time aspirations are too short. A mere moment of time. With the density of filler. The thickness or gauge of the needle. And the pressures involved. It can take a good few seconds to see a potential flashback or positive aspiration. We teach to always do a 10-second aspiration to make sure you’re as safe as possible. And always see that potential flashback to avoid injecting into an artery.

If you have any questions about any of our Anti wrinkle injections or filler training courses in Kent or Essex or London. Please do get in contact with us via social media or email or phone.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our Dermal Fillers & Botox training courses soon.

Aqualyx Fat dissolving. What we’ve all been waiting for!


Introduction to fat dissolving injections.

Aqualyx could possibly be the fat dissolving treatment at everyone’s been waiting for. This advanced new technique can be used in the face and body to great effect at the Eclipse School of Beauty. For small areas such as the jowls and chin, just one sessions can intensely reduce fat and return a more youthful and definite facial contour. For larger areas like, bingo wings and bums you may need up to 5 sessions to see dramatic results.

What is Aqualyx?

Aqualyx is a water-based solution that is injected into the fatty tissue in the face or body, it surrounds the cells and terminates them. The remains of the fat cells are then expelled by the body safely as waste. Aqualyx is perfect for people who want to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat in their face or body. This treatment has bee clinically proven for these purposes.

Treatment regime.

The time of the treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated.

Treatment for fat underneath the neck and chin, may require 1-2 treatments. While treatments for body fat may require 8 treatments

We must make it extremely clear that Aqualyx is not a substitute for diet and exercise and cannot fix you if you are overweight. It is for stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Hii Pen No Injection Fillers – What it is and how it works.

What is Hii Pen?

Hii Pen Fillers is the new reinvented treatment for bigger fuller lips without the injections. It is a quite simplistic device that engenders enough pressure to launch Hyaluron Acid into the skin.

Whats the difference between no needle Hii Pen injections to old-style needle injections?

Hii Pen Filler is a non-aggressive tool and distributes hyaluronic acid into the filler into the skin by causing pressure. During treatment the client will surprisingly minimal pain – it does not hurt virtually as much as injectable filler. Comparing them both with Hii Pen there is less bruising, swelling or needle marks.

What is involved in the procedure?

The procedure is quite simple, the HA (hyaluronic acid) filler inserted into the skin is completely safe as the body produces it. It is impossible for anyone to have an allergic reaction from the HA filler itself.
The more Hyaluronic Acid inside the epidermis and dermis layer of the skin, the more water is retained keeping its moisture and making the appearance of the skin more youthful.

What is HA (hyaluronic acid)?

Our Skin cells produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally in a proposal to maintain moisture levels. Due to ageing and environmental aggressors those levels tend to dip. Scientific studies have shown that HA helps improve skin hydration and production of collagen, maintain skin elasticity, and even has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help with wound healing.
This is why such treatments involving HA have been created to prolong these levels and create longer youthful skin.

Plasma Skin Tightening. What is it and how will it benefit you as a beautician?

This is the only cosmetic treatment which uses plasma to eradicate excess skin. It is low risk and more inexpensive than surgery! Plasma is known for its success with all its non-surgical benefits such as, Non surgical eye lift, skin tag removal, tummy tightening, stretch marks and so much more available.

How does the treatment work?

Numerous points are placed on the surface of the skin using a minute sterile plasma probe. Due to the variety and arrangements of all the points, it helps to reduce excess skin and results show that the skin is clearly tightened. There is a small plasma flash which due to its evaporation effect, instantaneously uses a healing and tissue tightening result. The elasticity of the skin and tightness is rapidly improved.

What are the advantages of plasma?

  • No Surgery!!! Due to this new and advanced treatment, surgery is now out of the picture. Unlike surgery there is no risk of ‘over lifting’ the skin.

BB GLOW and Micro-Needling! What is it and how will it benefit you?

BB Glow

BB GLOW and Micro-Needling! What is it and how will it benefit you?

Imagine waking up every morning with zero red spots and an even complexion! Getting ready to leave for work has never been easier with your base already prepared.Think about how much money you will save on buying BB creams and concealers! These are the promises that BB GLOW will provide you!

BB GLOW treatment

This semi-permanent treatment offers more visible and fast benefits out of all the facial treatments.
BB glow uses a Micro Needle Therapy System. It provides immediate coverage just like foundation!

The results include visible wrinkle improvement, appearance of the skin, even skin tone. Of course the GLOW all without over simulating the skin. It is achieved by using skin coloured pigment and peptides which is Micro Needled all across the face.

BB glow is recommended for both Men and Women with dark skin tones, acne scars, reduction of freckles, redness, age spots and skin discolouration on lighter skin types.

BB GLOW Microneedling

The process of the treatment is the same as a simple microneedling facial, this works by rolling tiny needles across the skin. This is a highly affective machine which helps increase skins collagen and elastin. These tiny pin pricks forces the skin to heal and build up stronger than before, the machine also deposits serum deeper into the skin.



How long does it last?

This all depends on the skin condition and amount of care taken, for first timers this will last a week or just over. Although having this done multiple times will lead to increased longevity and more coverage.

We advise for all first time clients to come back for a second session at Eclipse School of Beauty in order to provide better coverage and prolonged results.

Is there any down time?

No you can go back to day to day life however the bb glow treatment should be left untouched for 24 hours, your skin may look shiny for this time and gradually start to feel dry which is the skins natural response.

How many treatments are needed?

This treatment is great before a special event or weekend away, however if you would like the results to last much longer we recommend building up coverage over the course of 3-4 treatments spread equally over maximum 10 days apart.


Does it hurt?

The treatment is a little uncomfortable on some areas however tightness and tingling after treatment is completely normal.

As a Semi Permanent Makeup Artist, why is it important to be trained in both Microblading AND Machine Brow Tattooing?

As a Semi-Permanent Makeup Artist, why is it important to be trained in both Microblading AND Machine Brow Tattooing?


Microblading and Machine Brow Semi-Permanent makeup is completely different procedures that require incredibly opposing techniques and create such versatile results.

Although some clients will often suit either one of these finishes to the Brow, it is also common for someone to suit one finish, yet another be completely inappropriate for them. Not only is the aesthetic finish to the brow different, but the length of time before the brows start to fade is also different too.


Microblading is a much faster fading procedure, that depending on the client skin type. It can sometimes only last up to just a few months- contrasting with the finish of Machine Brows, which often at minimum can last up to 18 months.

Of course, the healing and lasting process is also dependent on many contributing factors such as the attention you pay to the aftercare guide given, skin type, sun exposure, washing routine, soaps and cleansers/shampoo and conditioner used etc.

If for example, Microblading did not hold particularly well on a client, by being qualified in Machine Brow Tattooing too, you will then be able to offer your client an alternative technique that would perhaps be the solution to a longer lasting Brow!

It is also common for some people to not always do their market research before choosing the beauty consultant they visit for the treatments- which results in unsatisfied customers with a tattooed brow they weren’t hoping for, incorrect pigmentation and undesired shapes.

By offering both Brow techniques, you are then able to rectify existing concerns by carrying out a correction treatment with the more appropriate procedure.

All client requirements and desires are different, which is why, as the Artist- it is most affective not only for your personal business to offer both, but for a client to feel like they are being offered a treatment that genuinely is the right thing for them.

The beauty industry is quickly, and vastly growing every day; so, as a professional within the industry, it is a great opportunity for professional growth and development to understand the various different techniques and styles available in order to keep up with trends, but also eliminate industry competition by offering the most up to date treatments from the offset.

What is the difference between Microblading and SPMU for eyebrows?

What is the difference between Microblading and SPMU for eyebrows?


First of all, it is important to know what “SPMU” actually stands for Semi-Permanent makeup -the technique that requires a specialist tattoo machine to create certain desired aesthetics in various areas of the body.

When it comes to Eyebrows, the beauty industry often refers to this as a “Powder Brow”.  So, now that we have that query cleared up – here’s to answer the main question!

Simply put, the difference between Microblading and SPMU eyebrows is everything; from the technique, the finished look, the shading to even the healed result and the top-up process.


Microblading is the method of Eyebrow tattooing that requires a specialist handheld blade that’s been dipped into the pigment the client is matched up with. The blade then gently cuts individual fine hairlines into the skin which gives the closest results to that of a natural-looking brow.

Because it requires a hand-held blade, it is far more accessible to intricately mimic the exact direction of the clients natural hair growth. The pigment is placed by the blade into a higher layer of the skin compared to that of machine tattooing- thus meaning the final result is less permanent.

Once the hair strokes have been etched into the skin, extra pigment is the rubbed over the brows to ensure that the skin is absorbing the colour fully into the hair stroke marks. Once the pigment has had time to sink in, excess ink is wiped away to reveal the initial templated shape.

This process is repeated 2-4 times over the entire brow, filling any exposed gaps each time till the perfect, natural looking eyebrow has been built. With microblading, a second appointment is needed 4-8 weeks after the initial treatment to fill any gaps that can appear during the healing process.

SPMU/ Powder Brow

It is a much bolder, more defined finish to the Brow with a far longer lasting result. This treatment is done using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine.

The pigment is gently applied to the skin using very fine needles to stencil over and fill a templated shape that is created during the consultation before the procedure begins. The sensation is that of a gentle electric toothbrush being held against the skin.

The process normally takes about one hour, but it varies from person to person depending on the individual requirements. The finish is heavier, bolder and what is known as a “block colour”, contrasting with the softer and far more natural look to Microblading.

Generally speaking, it is a much heavier look, although there are several advanced artistry shading techniques that can be applied to give different finishes (Ombre brows, etc).

A second appointment is usually required between 6-10 weeks after the initial treatment in order to fill any gaps or patches that may have appeared during healing.

Areola reconstruction


This particular form of aesthetic is technically known as a “medical tattoo” that was originally designed in order to reconstruct the nipple after a woman has undergone breast surgery. This process can also be applied to the breast in order to enhance the natural shape or colour of the nipple, as well as minimising the appearance of scars. It involves advanced techniques and training, and therefore some form of medical/ aesthetic or cosmetic experience is usually required by the consultant before this practice can be performed. When this treatment has been applied, it can massively increase ones self esteem, and the final result can look incredibly effective and realistic.


Scalp micro-pigmentation

Scalp pigmentation (alternatively known as Micro hair pigmentation or Trico pigmentation) is a treatment that is ideal for anybody who suffers from excessively thin hair, gaps of hair, hair loss due to illness or ageing, someone looking for that perfect shaven look or those too young for an actual hair transplant. This form of pigmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses a specialist tattoo machine to recreate the look of a full head of hair using Micro needles and tinted ink that is dotted sporadically over the scalp and matched intricately to the current hair follicles.


Semi-permanent makeup removal


This is a procedure that is commonly requested in the beauty industry. Whilst there are many experienced, qualified and talented semi-permanent makeup artists out there- clients finding and booking in with the right one isn’t always the case!

Semi-Permanent Makeup Removal is a procedure that is quite literally self-explanatory and in the title! It is a technique that is designed to reverse the results of incorrect Microblading or SPMU. Unfortunately, when the wrong artist has performed either of these techniques on a client- the desired shape the client required, or the expected colour can end up incorrect. The Removal procedure is not only able to correct colour bleeding or incorrect colour matches, but also entirely eliminate any remanence of SPMU work that the client is not happy with.


MCA- scar and stretch mark removal


MCA is the procedure used to permanently improve the physical appearance of all kinds of scarring on the body or face. This can include acne scaring, burns, appearance of regular scaring, stretch marks and even fine lines and wrinkles.

The idea behind this treatment is somewhat similar to that of “Dermarolling”, but the difference being that dermarolling is an ongoing ‘facial’ type treatment that needs monthly follow ups, whereas with this procedure, 2-3 treatments on one area (depending on the initial damage to the scar tissue) is usually enough. The results are long term-permanent, and the treatment involves the opening of the skin with tiny microneedles. The microneedle machine will move around the desired treatment area on the skin to stimulate collagen to move to the surface. This will then break down the knotted tissue and helps to flatten any raised scarring or damage.
