Botox and Dermal Fillers Courses for Nurses in Glasgow
Nurses play a huge role in providing aesthetic treatments; the British Association for Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) reports nurses provide 54% of dermal filler and 52% of botulinum toxin; significantly higher than doctors (13%), dentists (6%) and clinics (26%). So why is there such a higher number of nurses moving into aesthetics? Nurses are fantastic with patient care, offering support and spending quality time with patients. Not to mention the regular professional strains nurses face working within public healthcare, more than any other healthcare professional are subject to pay cuts, longer hours and working more than 35 hour weeks. Therefore, it’s more than reasonable for nurses to want to shift force and move into a highly profitable industry estimated worth at 2.2 billion and increasing.

We are confident in expanding our aesthetic training into Scotland after notable success in London, with our prestigious facilities situated in Harley Street. Glasgow is a credible city, home to some of the most infamous physicians, not to mention our state-of-the-art facilities for our aesthetic training. Primarily as a nurse, I am sure you believe in the motto ‘practise makes perfect?’ We believe this is the case for newly qualified aesthetic nurses, which is why we are offering foundation, advanced and mentorship training. For example, on our foundation training days, we introduce you to Botox and Dermal fillers, specialising in techniques like Crow’s Feet, Forehead Lines and Glabella Lines. Our advanced course is designed to go deeper, essential for the necessary experience you need if you were to begin an aesthetics business or begin freelancing as an aesthetic nurse. For example, we will teach you the specialised injection technique for Dermal Fillers and Botox.

We guide you through the process by ensuring you have enough information available at your fingertips, with access from units 1-7 on our VLE (virtual learning environment) and regular practical assessments or direct observational practices (DOPs).

- How do you organise your practical sessions at MATA?
Generally, we try to accommodate newly training aesthetic nurses by running our training days in a two day weekend. This is great for balancing around your regular working hours, ensuring you can fully commit to the practical training. Our foundation and advanced training focusses one full day on Botox, including an introduction to Botox, advanced skills and essential injection technique. The second day focuses on Dermal Fillers using theory and practical sessions. Saliently, we use live models in all of our training days, meaning you get the necessary hands-on experience, essential for beginning a prosperous career as an asthetics nurses.
- What can I aspect as a newly qualified aesthetic nurse?
After completion of our foundation training, you are considered competent with aesthetics injectables. However, many nurses opt for our Level 7 Diploma in Facial Aesthetics: Incorporating OTHM Level 7 Certificate/Diploma in Clinical Injectable Therapies, meaning you get triple the core content and practical training; foundation, advanced and mentorship. Essentially this means you can begin freelancing work while you train, as many do. If you lack any medical contacts for Botox prescribing then, we also run another course called the V300 Prescribing Mentorship Training in partnership with universities, allowing you to eventually prescribe Botox while training. Additionally, we have the required contacts across the UK in aesthetics to aid you with making new contacts and provide support throughout your training.
