All cosmetic injectable Courses and Personal Training Sessions are face to face. Dermal Distinctions Courses are held at 3 Belmore Road, Balwyn North, which is a state of the art accredited dental practice, including both clinical areas and a lecture room.
Personal Training Appointments are held at the same location.
Webinars are recorded and will be provided to you on our website
We also offer a range of online courses to provide you with refresher knowledge, additional support and education.
The injectable courses are open to dentists, medical doctors and registered nurses ONLY and you MUST hold a current registration with AHPRA. DO NOT enrol in our courses if you are not currently registered with AHPRA as a medical doctor or dentist. We will immediately refund the course fees minus any payment-gateway fees. You should check that your insurance covers training for cosmetic injectable procedures prior to registering.
Certificates identifying the CPD commitment are issued to Dentists, Doctors and registered nurses who have completed Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training Courses, Personalised Training Sessions or other Courses. Certificates are not issued for complimentary Webinars.
We need to ensure that all of our course participants are registered with AHPRA. Please bring your ID, such as a passport or drivers licence to the face-to-face training so that we may verify and record your attendance. There is no need for loupes, but we do recommend your regular protective glasses. There will be no photography or video recording allowed in the clinical sessions.
+ Our courses provide you with a significant e-learning experience before the clinical session. Once you have accessed the e-learning component, only the practical component will be refunded, to the amount of $800 (inc GST). Alternatively you may reschedule for a future course.
+ Provided you have NOT accessed the e-learning component:
1. cancellations made 8 weeks or more prior to course commencement are subject to a 15% administration & pre-training material charge.
2. cancellations 4-8 weeks of course commencement are subject to a 25% cancellation fee.
3. cancellations 2-4 weeks of course commencement are charged a 50% cancellation fee.
4. cancellations within 2 weeks of course commencement are not refunded, but we may consider rescheduling your training to the next upcoming course if this is suitable.
Courses which do not receive sufficient enrolments are subject to cancellation. If a course is cancelled, a full refund will be provided. This is also the case with COVID restrictions. Dermal Distinction and Dr Giulia D'Anna are not responsible for any associated expense e.g. accommodation or travel, or for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of an event.
Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training is designed to give you the foundational skills to provide treatments after training. However, we recognise that all individuals learn at a different pace and some practitioners will require more study and time before proceeding with treatments.
You will need to acquire the correct equipment and medications to proceed. It is mandatory that you comply with insurance requirements as set out by AHPRA, and only proceed with treatments that you are competent to undertake.
AHPRA have included the use of dermal filler and botulinum toxin in the documents for dentists. It is important that you continue to provide all the relevant examinations and provide information to patients when considering any treatment option, including botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. To read the fact sheet on botulinum toxin and dermal filler AHPRA documents, visit here.
Our training does not provide endorsement or certification of your skills. You should use the AHPRA reflective practice tool when evaluating treatments that you perform within your scope of practice. This can be found here.
The Dental Board of Australia does not accredit continuing professional development courses or course providers, other than full Bachelor or University degrees. You may find more information here.
Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training is not a Registered Training Organisation and so does not offer Australian Qualifications Framework Vocation Education and Training qualifications such as Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas.
1 Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training reserves the right to exclude individuals from registering and/or participating in any course on reasonable grounds. This is inclusive of practitioners that Dr. Giulia D'Anna does not feel are suitable for training in our facility.
2 All course attendees must conduct themselves in a reasonable and professional manner. If Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training receives a complaint about the conduct of a course attendee from a member of staff, course presenter, patient, or another course attendee, Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training may, acting reasonably, cancel the attendee’s registration in the course and/or exclude the attendee from participating in the remainder of the course, or Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training courses held in the future.
3 If a course involves patient treatment there are additional mandatory requirements for participants which include but are not limited to complying with Patients’ Rights and Responsibilities. After care of patients is the responsibility of the treating practitioner. Dermal Distinction Cosmetic Training will provide mentoring and support.
