Training Courses Glasgow

MATA’s Harley Street BOTOX® training is now available in Glasgow. Having won multiple awards since the academy was founded, the BOTOX® and dermal filler training provided by MATA is amongst the best in the industry. Our BOTOX® training courses provide delegates with a solid skill set to be able to effectively and safely treat paying patients.

MATA offer BOTOX® training at varying levels from a foundation course all the way through to our Level 7 qualification in Glasgow (equivalent to an SQA Level 11). The strong focus on learning facial anatomy, attention to safety and the provision of real-life models ensures anyone training with us leaves fully equipped to start treating patients upon leaving the door.

MATA training goes further than just meeting basic regulations, our industry-recognised BOTOX® training meets and exceeds requirements set out in the HEE 2016 Guidelines.

Why Train with MATA?

Whilst a competitive industry, due to the unfortunately unregulated nature of it, it is not difficult to stand out. With the highest possible standards of training under your belt and a certification from MATA you will already be leaps and bounds ahead of the competition.

MATA has always been an advocate for better industry standards and as a result all of our courses and qualifications have been developed with input from scientists and industry specialists. Our qualifications, including our Level 7 BOTOX® and dermal filler qualification, are quality assured and recognised by regulatory bodies. Upon completion of a MATA training course or qualification, a certificate which is recognised by all of the main insurance bodies is received. MATA provide our Glasgow delegates with everything they need to get on their feet in the aesthetics world including advice on setting up a private clinic.

Our trainers are widely recognised as some of the best in the industry with all of them actively practising injectable treatments and running their own successful aesthetics clinics. On practical training days delegates will have the opportunity to take advantage of our experienced trainers’ expertise and ask questions, hear detailed explanations and watch demonstrations from some of the UK’s leading injectable practitioners.

In addition to our robust standards and expert trainers we are thrilled to offer more practical, hands on experience than any other independent training provider. We offer learners the opportunity to practice techniques on fresh frozen material before moving on to live volunteer patients. MATA have a huge database of volunteer patients and ensure we keep our group sizes small. This enables us to maximise the amount of practice available to our learners before leaving our doors.
