Models FAQ

Our model appointments are usually booked on a first come, first served basis. We regularly send out emails to our models mailing list with details about upcoming training sessions and the first people to get in touch with us will be booked in for those dates. First and foremost, we need models to be reliable and easily reached. If you sign up to be a model but then do not respond to our emails or calls, we may pass your place on to the next person.

On some occasions, we may need to check that you are suitable to actually have the treatment in question. This will usually be done by asking questions over the phone. For example, for advanced chemical peels, we will need to check whether you have any existing skin conditions such as rosacea.
As mentioned above, we require models to be reliable. Our training sessions are carefully scheduled so if a model cancels at the last minute or fails to turn up, this can be a major disruption for the people being trained. For this reason, we ask models to pay a deposit to secure their appointment. For skin treatments, this is the full price of the treatment (normally £20 to £30). If a model cancels their appointment on the day or fails to turn up at all, they will lose their deposit.
Occasionally, your treatment may be carried out by one of our trainers as a demonstration, however, most of the time, your treatment will be performed by one of the people we are training that day, under the guidance and supervision of our trainer.

We have very specific entry requirements for all of our courses and always make sure that we only train people who hold relevant qualifications and experience. Our skin courses are open to medical professionals and qualified beauty therapists.

Please do not worry about the practitioner’s experience – our trainers are all highly skilled, highly knowledgeable aesthetic practitioners themselves and will guide the trainees through your treatment every step of the way!
As your treatment is taking place during a training session, it will normally take longer than it would in a regular clinic. During your treatment our trainer will discuss the procedure with the delegates and they may ask questions, which can make the whole process take a bit longer. We try to keep everything running on time, but due to the nature of training, we can't guarantee that you will be finished by a certain time.

There may also be some waiting around, however, we are happy for you to relax in our lounge area if this is the case - you can even watch TV if you want! We usually advise models to allow themselves up to two hours in total for their visit to us, although more often than not, they won't be here for that long.
Treatments for models are significantly discounted from what they would be in a normal aesthetic clinic. Individual prices for treatments are detailed on the emails we send out about upcoming training sessions, however, you will normally receive a discount of at least 50% for your treatment.
As mentioned above, our training sessions are very carefully scheduled and planned. We also keep our training groups very small so that our delegates do not feel under pressure when carrying out the treatment for the first time in front of an audience. For this reason, we politely ask that models do not bring friends or family with them to their appointment. If you do need to bring a friend or family member with you, please bear in mind that they will not be allowed to accompany you into the treatment room and will be asked to stay in the waiting area during your treatment.
This will depend on which treatment you are having. For skin treatments, downtime is generally very minimal; you may find that your skin is red following a treatment, however, this usually subsides fairly quickly. The only skin treatment which may require downtime is the TCA peel, which is carried out during our Advanced Peel course, as this causes the skin to flake and peel away quite significantly over a number of days.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding downtime for a particular treatment, our team is available on 0151 559 0865 to offer advice and guidance.
For the majority of skin treatments, no check up or follow up appointment is required as they are not invasive treatments. If for some reason, our Educator feels that you do need a check up, this will be booked in with one of our medical practitioners at our aesthetic clinic, which is located next door to Facethetics Training.

If a model ever has any concerns following a treatment, or on the very rare occasion that they have a complication, they will also be booked in for an appointment with one of our medical practitioners.
