Overall the UK is seeing a huge increase in the demand for anti-wrinkle injections and Leeds is of no exception. With the increase in demand for the treatment, there has also become an increase in the need for qualified and reliable practitioners. If you have been considering a career move into, or wish to develop your skills in injectable procedures there really has never been a better time to enrol onto a MATA BOTOX® course.
When practicing injectable treatments there are certain risks, because of this the UK has certain regulations surrounding the practice. Our injectable courses do not just adhere to these rules, they train delegates to a higher level than the basic requirements. This ensures that when our delegates complete and pass our courses they are able to treat patients safely in accordance with UK regulations.
BOTOX® Training Courses
MATA’s BOTOX® education and training is considered industry-leading. We champion safety in all that we do, and have won multiple awards for the work that we have put in to improve industry standards. The strong focus our courses put on learning facial anatomy and attention to safety ensures anyone training with us leaves prepared to safely treat paying patients. When it comes to safety, MATA and our trainers go further than meeting basic regulations, because of this, the industry-recognised Level 7 qualification for doctors, nurses and dentists goes above and beyond the HEE 2016 Guidelines.
The course begins with providing delegates access to an exclusive, university standard online resource portal for delegates to study the necessary theory in their own time. This ensures they are up to speed before entering practical sessions. MATA will only ever award certification once evidence of sufficient practical application is achieved. This proven approach gives delegates a fully comprehensive understanding of the BOTOX® treatments as they are practiced today.
Why train with MATA?
Before enrolling yourself onto a course, you need to be sure that you will be receiving the best level of training possible. Although there are a few options available in the UK, MATA is the best choice.
We emphasise safety in all we do, from training our course attendees to use safe techniques to ensuring we cover how to manage any possible side effects or complications which may arise. This detail to safety is recognised worldwide and because of this, a certificate awarded by MATA does wonders for any practitioner’s reputation.
We are a medical training organisation leading the way in education, going beyond basic government requirements on safety guidelines and fast establishing a global presence. Because of this our courses are internationally recognised, helping you to excel your aesthetics skills and career wherever you go.
When studying with MATA an in depth understanding of facial anatomy, how treatments work and how they should be administered safely is assured. Unlike most other training courses in the industry, our delegates have the chance to undertake cadaveric dissection on fresh frozen material to gain experience before moving on to injecting live models. This is because we recognise that a hands-on approach works best when desiring a career in facial aesthetics and experience must be built before anyone is ready to treat paying patients. When you have completed and passed your MATA training you will receive a certificate which is recognised by all of the main insurance bodies.

Leeds Points of Interest
Leeds is a large city located in Yorkshire. It’s a fantastic, bustling place rich with diversity and culture. A short distance to the picturesque Yorkshire countryside or the coast, other major cities such as Manchester or York and beautiful towns such as Harrogate there really is so much to see and do in the area. Whether you fancy a countryside walk or something a bit more cosmopolitan Leeds can certainly keep you entertained.
The city has recently opened its first major concert venue, the First Direct Arena, but even prior to this it had a wonderful nightlife scene with plenty of clubs and bars. There’s ample museums, galleries and outstanding architecture and the recently opened Trinity shopping centre can all service a vast array of interests.
