7 Years of Level 7: Injectables Qualification hits milestone

Injectables Qualification hits milestone

In 2015 Dr Tristan Mehta had an idea for a new way to provide healthcare professionals with a safe and regulated hands-on aesthetic medicine education. After a wealth of research, he put pen to paper and the result was the UK’s first Ofqual-regulated Level 7 injectables qualification.

Now, in 2022, we are proud to be celebrating 7 Years of Level 7.

The Level 7 Diploma in Botox & Dermal Fillers is an Ofqual-regulated and JCCP-approved postgraduate qualification in injectables. Furthermore, whilst it remains mapped to the Health Education England guidelines for providing aesthetics courses, it now goes above and beyond these. Aesthetic medicine is a fast-moving field and we work hard to ensure our trainees always receive the most up-to-date education in injectables.

Dr Tristan Mehta creator Level 7


Harley Academy founder, Dr Tristan Mehta has published an interview to celebrate 7 Years of Level 7. As the creator of the Level 7 injectables qualification, his story on how he came up with the idea, through to where he sees the future of aesthetics, is a compelling one.

You can read his full interview, Setting the Standard for Medical Aesthetics Education – 7 Years of Level 7, on Medium.

Alternatively, watch his full length video below. This in-depth conversation is a must-watch for anyone interested in aesthetic medicine, especially in the UK.
