Working within the aesthetic industry can sometimes be daunting with practitioners often left feeling isolated without a large public sector or corporate network to support them. By ensuring our members receive the guidance education and information they need we are gradually working to change this. PIAPA’s essential ethos is non-judgemental, practical support to fits all skill levels.

What is PIAPA

Private Independent Aesthetic Practices Association is the helping hand to medical professionals working within aesthetics. We provide invaluable help, support, educational opportunities and guidance from experienced practitioners and industry experts. Our association works closely with manufacturers, product suppliers, regulatory bodies, national councils and service providers to deliver up to date information and knowledge to our members. We help create long-lasting professional friendships that make individuals in the sector feel less alone and more confident in their practice.

What We Provide

Help & Advice

It’s reassuring to know that you have help and encouragement hen you need it.  Our team of experienced representatives are available by phone and email when you need a second opinion or trustworthy advice from regulation to medication we try to cover every base

Clinical Reflection

PIAPA always promotes clinical reflection. We host quarterly clinical supervision sessions where practitioners get together to discuss various topics, treatment protocols, best practice and above all learn from each other’s experiences

Support & Friendship

We are proud to have built up a loyal and diverse group of members over the years. From our association people have gained great professional friendships and a network of peers that has made them feel less isolated and more confident in their work

Education & Learning

Our main aim is to provide medical professionals with education and learning opportunities which can be so hard to find and finance when working independently. Members can gain new knowledge from events like our Step Ahead in Aesthetics Conference, Filler Forum, Skin Focus & Clinical Supervision Sessions

Exclusive Offers

We’ve been around for over a decade and in that time we’ve made great links with other companies who pass on multiple valuable promotions and offers just for our members. Companies such as MedivaPharma & Cosmetic Redress Scheme offer year-round discounts to PIAPA members

Online Resources

Our online member zone is a convenient base full of useful documents, links and resources that can prove essential for practitioners just starting out and remain valuable throughout your career when looking to renew your knowledge or explore other learning avenues and mediums.

"When I entered into aesthetic nursing I had no idea just how lonely it was. But through PIAPA I found, not only the support I needed professionally, but gained a great group of friends who support each other"

Neil,  Aesthetic Nurse ,  Merseyside

"Without question, the aesthetic industry is constantly growing and ever changing. PIAPA is invaluable to both my business and professional development."

Heather, Aesthetic Nurse, North Yorkshire, Bradford

"Having entered the industry over 15 years ago from the NHS, I instantly recognised the need for some professional support in the medical aesthetics industry so, with the help of colleagues in the sector, I created a group that welcomed the expertise of industry leaders and encouraged peer-to-peer support among members. PIAPA will always provide a friendly environment to learn and improve."
