The team, led by Clinetix’s Dr Simon Ravichandran and Dr Emma Ravichandran, will provide training, which will comply with the recent and planned changes in legislation governing the aesthetic industry.

Commenting, Dr Simon Ravichandran says: “We are delighted to be opening the first aesthetic training academy in Scotland. We welcome the changes in legislation for the aesthetic industry, which will raise standards and outlaw dangerous practices by unqualified people.

“The academy will train a range of qualified professionals – including dentists, doctors, nurses, and appropriately-qualified beauty therapists – in the art and craft of aesthetic medicine.

“Given the growth of the aesthetic industry in Scotland, we expect a high demand.”
