Botox Training Courses


Take your first steps into aesthetic medicine…

MATA can help you get to where you want to go.  We offer a range of training courses and qualification for those who want to learn the basics of BOTOX and Dermal Fillers injections and those who already have experience but want to learn more advanced techniques.

Our training is different

We allow our delegates to learn their skills on real patients, we do not use mannequins in our training.   This gives you a better understanding of what it is like to inject on your own patients.

Our Botox and Dermal Filler classes are small

We hold small group sessions where our classes are no more than 6 delegates to a tutor.  We feel larger groups than this would compromise your learning experience.

Stand out from competitors

If you choose to undertake a Postgraduate Diploma in Facial Aesthetics you will learn the basics to advanced techniques and have access to mentorship days.  You will be provided access to our university standard online learning environment where you will learn all the theory required to pass your qualification.

Gaining a Postgraduate Qualification allows you to differentiate your clinic or show potential employers that you are qualified to the highest standard.

Introducing the New Post Graduate Diploma in Facial Aesthetics

Our mission at MATA was to develop a qualification that allows our delegates to have the best standard of specialist training and a qualification that stood out from the current Level 7 Certificate.

The New MATA Postgraduate Diploma in Facial Aesthetics is worth 60 Credits and provides more in-depth knowledge and more credits than our Level 7 Certificate which is only worth 34 credits.

Why MATA

HEE Guidelines

Rather than just meeting regulation requirements (see updated 2016 HEE Guidelines), Training at MATA gives you the added value of plenty of in-depth, hands-on practice which we believe is critical for professional confidence and patient trust.

Tutors

Our tutors are experts in aesthetics, with a great deal of tutoring experience in the industry.  And what’s more, our support team are always on hand for any questions and assistance you may require following your training.

Real Life Patients

We only use real-life patients, we do not use mannequins as we feel these do not give a realistic injecting experience for our delegates.

Online Learning

As part of our Postgraduate Diploma or Foundation Training, you will gain access to our comprehensive University standard online learning environment.

Our Qualifications are worth more

Our Postgraduate Diploma is worth 60 Credits versus 34 Credits for our Level 7 Certificate

What are the benefits of training in Botox and Fillers?

 

Flexible working hours

Working as a private practitioner allows you to control your working hours.  You can work as much or as little as you need.   If you are feeling like you are missing out on time with family and friends because of the long unsociable working hours of the NHS then a move into aesthetics may be what you are looking for to correct your work-life balance.

 

Release your potential

Many of our delegates find they are not moving forward in their career, with some having a limited opportunity for any kind of career progression. We help by giving our delegates an alternative path to realise their potential and satisfy their ambition.

 

Increase your earnings

Facial Injectable Therapies is an area of aesthetic medicine that commands high earning potential.  Many of our delegates choose to follow this path in addition to their current job which allows them to boost their earnings. Others, see the value in perusing this path full time, allowing them increased their earning potential.

 

Relationship building

One of the best parts of working in aesthetics is the long-term relationships you can build with your patients.   Successful practitioners have relationships with their patients over many years.  Giving your patients the time and focus they require can pay dividends over many years.

 

Postgraduate Diploma

Being one of the first qualified in this new industry leading qualification allows you to stand out.   You will have a greater understanding of facial aesthetics, hyperhidrosis, complications, risk, and management than your peers.    This gives you an edge over your competitors.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does Botox and Fillers training take?

Before you enrol, please ensure you can: 

  • Set aside time to study the learning materials and resources – some people may do this all in one go, others may want to fit it in around their work/life schedules
  • Attend the two day clinical hands-on sessions (call us for dates and times)
  • Complete the Log Book Assessment, either before or after the clinical hands-on sessions depending upon whether or not you are already in clinical practice.

The length of time it takes to complete your qualification depends very much upon your circumstances – normally this is around 12 months. If you already in clinical practice it may be quicker for you to complete the Log Book Assessment than if you don’t have access to therapy.

Most importantly, we want you to become part of the MATA learning community by sharing our forums and discussions as part of your life-long learning and development. MATA will support you at all stages of your learning and our course tutors will be happy to discuss how to get the most from your studies.

Can I build points towards another certificate?

Yes, as the course is modular, units from the qualifications are also available as stand-alone accredited short courses, offering learners the opportunity to build ‘credits’ whilst gaining valuable training and experience in safe practice of cosmetic therapies, in line with HEE guidelines and recommendations.

Who will conduct the Botox and Fillers training?

Your tutors and assessors are highly experienced medical experts with lots of tutoring experience.  It will depend upon the session or module, and availability but you can be assured you will be getting the very best in tutoring at any of the centres we conduct our training in.

Is the qualification right for my practice?

Unfortunately there are no short cuts to the qualification for administering BOTOX®.  The government outlines the regulations due to injectible procedures being semi-invasive and therefore not without risk.  It is therefore essential that only those who have already received Level 6 qualifications in the medical sector can attain this next Level 7.

Will I need to bring my qualification certificates?

As part of the enrolment process you will be asked to complete your certification section.  The Online learning portal can then be started.  For the day sessions at our clinics we do require you to bring your professional body registration documents (eg. PIN, GMC, GDC) and a form of photo ID as proof of identity on the day of the course to enable you to participate in the practical section of the training.

How many people are in the tutoring sessions?

This will depend to some extent on the demand but not usually more than 6 delegates per tutor.  We believe in small groups to aid learning and enjoyment of the module.

What if I fail the assessment?

MATA ensures that all assessments are clearly explained to you, together with the criteria you must meet to pass each assessment. If you do not meet the pass criteria, your course tutor will give you feedback and guidance on how to improve your performance and options open to you to retake or complete further assessments.

To achieve the qualification, you must achieve the required pass mark or grade for each assessed component. MATA OTHM centre policies explain our Assessment appeals and referrals procedures.

Can I build points towards another certificate?

Yes, as the course is modular, units from the qualifications are also available as stand-alone accredited short courses, offering learners the opportunity to build ‘credits’ whilst gaining valuable training and experience in safe practice of cosmetic therapies, in line with HEE guidelines and recommendations.

Do you offer accredited Botox Training Courses

Yes, our courses are accredited to Level 7.

Do you have to be a nurse to do a Botox Course?

No, our courses are open to Doctors, Dentists, Registered Nurses, Midwives, Pharmacist, ODPs and Other Health Care Professionals.
