Botox and Dermal Filling Training Courses Belfast
MATA (Medical Aesthetics Training Academy) is a popular UK Botox and Dermal Fillers training academy, offering courses across the UK. Belfast is the largest city of Northern Ireland and was granted city status back in 1888; it is a wealthy city full of opportunities for delegates to train in Botox and Dermal Fillers. We host practical sessions across the UK, in London, Belfast, Dublin, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and even Dundee. MATA prides itself in creating new courses for both beauty therapists and medical professionals to deliver the highest level of teaching within aesthetics. Our Botox and Dermal Filler Courses are only open to Doctors, Dentists, and Nurses.
When did MATA first begin?
Our lead director Dr Faizeen Zavahir (MB.ChB, MRCS, MSC) began MATA in 2015, with one vision, to create aesthetic courses that could revolutionise the aesthetics industry. Back in 2010, there was an immediate outrage within the UK because of the PIP scandal. Since the release of the Keogh Report (2011) which highlighted the urgent need for courses to protect patients and physicians alike; MATA has created several aesthetic qualifications. Our most recent is the MATA Level 7 Diploma in Facial Aesthetics: Incorporating OTHM Level 7 Certificate in Clinical Injectable Therapies. Our Diploma is one of a kind, unique to MATA as an independent training provider. Self-assured by its partnership with OTHM, the UK based Awarding Organisation regulated by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations), we directly follow Health Education England (HEE), The Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority (CSPA). Essentially, this means we feel more than confident in our ability to offer Botox and Dermal Filler courses to the Belfast Community.
Are all the training days held in Belfast?
No, but we do hold some of our training days there, with others located in various parts of the UK. However, we will do our best to accommodate your needs. One significant advantage of our courses is that we have a lot of core content available on our virtual learning environment (VLE). Meaning as long as you have an internet connection, you can keep up-to-date with the core content and complete SAQs (short answer questions), end-of-unit questions as you train. All we would ask is that you come to training days, either for foundation, advanced or exclusive mentorship days. Additionally, we pride ourselves in using a blended practical approach to teaching; as we continually assess you through the course using direct observational practices (DOPs), where we can provide constructive feedback on your performance, and improve practice with Botox and Dermal Fillers.
- What do the foundation courses entail?
Our foundation courses are a fantastic bitesize introduction into the world of aesthetics. We introduce you to Botox and Dermal Fillers, basic techniques, the competence of practice and experience with real-life models. From there on, you can get constructive feedback about your performance and improve with repetition.
- I completed the foundation course, but I am wondering if it’s worth my time doing the advanced or enrolling for your Level 7 Diploma?
Well, it comes down to competence and experience of practice. Like many delegates before you, we recommend that you enrol for the Level 7 Diploma because it goes much deeper into the Botox and Dermal Filler concepts. Additionally, you are eligible for exclusive mentorship days, where we focus on advanced techniques, again using live models. Furthermore, with advanced training, you will not have a certified qualification within aesthetics compared to the Level 7 Diploma.
- I heard you offer masterclasses are these separate to the Level 7 Diploma?
In most cases yes, however, our masterclasses are fantastic for diving deep into the practicality of practice. For example, we may focus on Lip Fillers and address specific complications using real-life case studies. Alternatively, we might focus the day on Nose Augmentation, where we discuss techniques involving surgical and non-surgical methodologies.
- I am struggling with the core content on the VLE, can you help me?
Yes, we can do our best to narrow down which areas you are struggling with, you can drop us an email ([email protected]) or give us a call and speak directly with a MATA representative on 020 3126 4870. Alternatively, if you can try your best to complete as much of the content online before the practical sessions, then you will be able to ask direct questions to the tutors, who are always happy to provide feedback.
- I missed a practical session: what happens next?
Depending on your situation, we can try and enrol you on the next available class. However, it is imperative that you have a good reason. In the future, if this were to happen again it would be wise to contact us, and we would be able to reschedule your practical day.
- Are written assignments difficult?
It is entirely dependent on how much learning you have done or revision of the content. We like to think all our assessments are relatively straight-forward as long as you have prepared in advance.
- Can I bring my own models on the practical days?
Yes, of course, you can, if you contact us beforehand, we will be able to put your models on the specific training days.
- I want to learn Botox but do I have to do the Dermal Fillers part of the course?
The course is created to include both Botox and Dermal Fillers; truthfully, it’s beneficial that you learn both since many patients ask for either of the two.
- I completed my foundation training with another academy, can I still enrol for the Level 7 Diploma?
Yes, we should be able to accommodate your needs by replacing the foundation training days with useful mentorship days.
- Do you give me notice that a practical session is near?
Yes, we will notify you with several days in advance, generally by email.
