About CIOA

It is an educational organisation established by a team of doctors who are leaders in the field of cosmetic medicine and education.

Courses include introductory information sessions, specialised topics, certificates, and diplomas.

We deliver quality educational events with hands-on training on introductory modules, specialised topics as well as higher training in certificate and diploma courses.

Our Aim

To build a solid evidence-based foundation which will guide the practitioner to make the most effective choice of treatment

Why us?

We provide non biased independent training and post course support to ensure you continue to practice confidently. We provide education not just in one segment of the cosmetic industry but the entire syllabus (ranging from skin care, peels, RF Technology, microneedling, injectibles to lasers). We have extensive knowledge on market dynamics. We are able to guide our participants to the next level of learning. We provide only locally relevant topics.
