Although any qualified aesthetic practitioner can order dermal filler, Botox is a prescription-only medicine. This can be a source of worry for healthcare providers who want to practice in aesthetic injectables but do not have prescribing rights; but truly, this should not be a barrier to you establishing a career in aesthetics.
At MATA, we are accustomed to training non-prescribing medical professionals, and their being unable to prescribe has not prevented them from achieving great success in the aesthetics industry. They have built and used their professional connections to find a prescriber; networking with delegates at MATA training sessions, or discussing prescribing possibilities with colleagues. Alternatively, they have used a Prescriber Service such as Aesthetic Associates to find a prescriber for their aesthetic practice. These services have a network of prescribers nationwide who, for a fee, will come to your business, provide a face-to-face patient consultation, and write a prescription.
Studying Towards a V300 Non-Medical Prescribers Qualification
Once you have gained experience of working in aesthetics and you are comfortable carrying out injectable treatments in association with a prescriber; the next step is to undertake a V300 course at University which will allow you to consult and prescribe yourself.
At MATA, we can assist you in your V300 study by acting as your Designated Medical Practitioner; providing 90 hours of shadowing in our clinic at No.1 Harley Street in London. MATA’s V300 Mentorship Training will allow you to gain experience in carrying out patient consultations, and our experienced clinical mentors will ensure that you are in the best position to achieve your V300 Qualification.
Admission criteria for the V300 varies according to the University applied to, and you may find that you do not meet their requirements for experience. If this is the case, then why not consider our Level 7 Diploma in Facial Aesthetics. Not only will this ensure you are practicing to the utmost levels of excellence in aesthetic injectables, but will also provide you with one year’s experience towards course requirements for the V300.
