Botox Injections and Dermal Fillers

An understanding of Facial anatomy is the starting point for our Foundation Level. From there, a solid skill-set for treating all areas of the face is built by developing on this understanding. Trainees will gain essential experience via demonstrations and real volunteer patients whilst learning the importance of patient assessment. Because our BOTOX® training compliments the Dermal Fillers training so well, most delegates opt to study both on one of our two-day weekend courses.

The Foundation and Advanced levels count towards our UK Level 7 BOTOX® Qualification, an industry and A SQA recognised qualification which is Level 11 on the Scottish CreditQualifications Framework.

Why train with MATA?

MATA will provide you with the skills needed to safely and effectively carry out anti-wrinkle injections to extremely high standards. You will learn about all aspects of BOTOX® treatments including facial anatomy, different brands and products, carrying out correct patient assessments, consents and medical histories, contra-indications, carrying out treatments and techniques, complications and how to deal with them, how to deal with complaints, post-treatment care and much more.

Our training is highly-comprehensive and involves blended-learning which includes:

  • Theory studied in your own time using our university-standard online virtual learning environment (VLE). MATA’s VLE is full of written resources and interactive tests and quizzes.
  • Practical face-to-face training where you will carry out hands-on treatments, starting with cadaverous materials and later progressing on to volunteer patients. Unlike most academies, we keep our practical group sessions small to ensure that you get the maximum face to face time with your tutor and as much hands on practice with the live models as possible.
  • Clinic-based assessments and completion of a log book
  • Written exams

After completion of the course you will receive your MATA certificate which can be used to obtain insurance to carry out treatments and start your journey into the world of aesthetics. Our tutors are experts in aesthetics, with a great deal of tutoring experience in the industry.  Following your training, our support team are always on hand for any questions and assistance you may require after completing your training.
