Sophie Dickens BSC (Hons), RGN NIP – Aesthetic Nurse, Skin Deep Clinic

I started my nursing career in 2010 on secondment in a Nephrology ward in Shropshire and from 2012-2015 I completed Nurse Training at Staffordshire University, graduating with a BSc (HONS) Degree as a registered nurse. Following my formal qualifications, I undertook seven years of Community Nursing from 2015 to 2022. During this time, I was promoted to Community Nursing Sister which involved managing a small team of nurses and a large caseload of patients within Shropshire.

 

I have always had a passion and interest in aesthetics and skin health and with that aim in mind in 2017 I completed a Foundation Course in Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers with Harley Academy. However, as the BACN (British Association of Cosmetic Nurses) recommends at least three years nursing experience and 80% of their members have ten years NHS experience, I made the decision to continue in my Community Nursing role to get optimum experience before embarking on a formal career in Aesthetics.

 

”Sophie and Wendy are the absolute dream team in every way!

I felt the time was right for this in 2022, when I was delighted to join Wendy at Skin Deep Clinic in June. I then spent the time refreshing my knowledge from previous courses as well as learning, qualifying in and perfecting all the treatments we offer at Skin Deep Clinic. This included shadowing Wendy for over 100 hours and covering all key procedures including Botulinum Toxin, Dermal Fillers, Viscoderm, Profhilo and consultations. This gave me invaluable insight and experience and far more practical experience than many aesthetics nurses ever get initially
 Wendy was determined that my ability and knowledge was at the highest level before I started treating patients.

 I am fully qualified and trained in Profhilo (Theory and Practical), HydraFacial (Theory and Practical), Dermal Fillers and Botox Intermediate Course (1-1 with Anthea Aesthetics Training who has over 16 years’ experience) as well as ZO Skin Health Theory Session. I continue to learn and build on my training.

Like Wendy, I am also very proud to be a Save Face accredited practitioner. Save Face is a UK register of Accredited practitioners who provide non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. The Register is accredited by Professional Standards Authority and is recognised by the Government, The Department of Health, NHS England and The Care Quality Commission.
