What is the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine?
The Level 7 Certificate has been created to improve and standardise the training available to practitioners who carry out non- surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers. The requirements for practitioners have occurred after concerns regarding the regulation and safety surrounding non- surgical procedures.
The government Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) recognises a number of qualifications including those illustrated here.

The requirements set out in the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine “are aimed at ensuring that people are properly trained in the use and application of any products that they use – thereby making sure that patients’ safety comes first. This work follows an intensive engagement process with key figures from the cosmetics industry, regulators and professional bodies”.
