Postgraduate diploma in clinical aesthetic injectable therapies for dentists and hygienists

Mata explains how its aesthetic injectable therapies diploma can help you grow your practice.

Being a dentist will mean that your knowledge of facial anatomy and your skill with administrating injections is second to none – so why not consider adding anti-aging injectable treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers to your clinic’s offerings? One in four dental practices now offers anti-wrinkle injections to their patients to meet the increasing demand for this type of treatment, stay ahead of the game and your competitors with the highest level of qualification in this field.

Adding Botox and fillers to your repertoire will increase your revenue significantly as the margins are high, and as dentists you will have minimal setup fees given that your dental practice is the perfect setting for this type of treatment. Patients return every three to six months for this kind of treatment, so it is guaranteed repeat business for you. In addition, it may be that you are attracting new patients to your dental practice who first come for aesthetic rather than dental treatments.

Registered dental hygienists are also eligible to undertake Botox and fillers training at Mata, including the postgraduate diploma, which can provide the most comprehensive training in this field and also deepen your knowledge of facial anatomy to benefit your cosmetic dentistry work.

Volunteer patients

At Mata, clinical injectable therapies training is on live volunteer patients only – you will not be training on mannequins. Mata prides itself on the amount of hands-on, practical training that each delegate gets, ensuring that delegates feel confident on completion of their training. Mata clinical trainers are highly experienced and some of the best injectors in the country who are happy to share their knowledge.

The Mata postgraduate diploma qualification covers all aspects of aesthetic injectable therapies, requiring delegates to evidence knowledge, clinical skills and understanding in all areas of aesthetic injectables. It reflects JCCP (Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners) educational competencies and Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA) guidelines and is targeted to both practising and experienced aesthetic practitioners.

The postgraduate diploma is comprised of theory e-learning on the comprehensive, university-standard learning platform, followed by practical sessions in one of our nationwide centres. Delegates will be required to complete a log book of treatments and complete the training with practical and written assessments. This qualification is worth 60 academic credits, which is 20 more credits than the level seven certificate.

If you are new to aesthetics, your pathway can include foundation training in Botox and fillers and if you are an existing practitioner you are able to do a fast track pathway to complete the qualification sooner and be amongst the highest trained practitioners in facial aesthetics.

We are currently offering the postgraduate diploma in facial aesthetics for £5,150 + VAT for readers. Please visit and use offer code DUK-0118.
