Starting a new career in medical aesthetics is hard. Starting a private practice may seem near impossible. Aesthetic Mentor was created to help you build skills and break down barriers so that you can turn your dreams into ongoing realities.
Aesthetic Mentor was founded by Harvard-trained, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Russo with the goal of providing comprehensive hands-on medical aesthetic training with a strong focus on safety and continuing education. His experience as a practitioner and trainer for the major industry brands, such as Allergan, Merz, Galderma, and Cutera, inspired him to use what he knows to show students how they can become providers too. He started the Aesthetic Mentor in 2013, which evolved into Aesthetic Mentor after years of classes, lesson plan improvements, and team building.
The Aesthetic Mentor mission is to produce and cultivate safe, effective, successful medical aesthetic providers in the practice of non-surgical treatments including; injectable fillers, neurotoxins, lasers, and PRP rejuvenation therapies. Our curriculum and training model is designed to build your competence and confidence so you can get a job or start a practice early while concurrently building your skills. Our classes are led by board certified plastic surgeons and a team of highly qualified trainers, most who have been in the same classroom and now have practices of their own.
At Aesthetic Mentor you will receive an unprecedented amount of hands-on experience unmatched by any other aesthetic medicine training facility. Student to educator ratio is never more than 2-1 and in some cases is 1-1. Our class sizes are limited so each student receives individualized attention and you can practice your new skills with confidence.
When you choose Aesthetic Mentor for advanced training in aesthetic medicine, our investment in you continues far beyond the classroom, with ongoing support resources including; employment assistance, CME certification, business development leadership, group purchasing discounts for clinical supplies, and access to professional and patient marketing tools.
Best of all, Aesthetic Mentor graduates are highly sought after for employment opportunities in both medical practices and spas. In fact, many of our graduates have gone on to open their own medical spas with our partnership.
Dr. Russo and his very talented instructors have helped me to build many more skills clinically, and have been great support for every question or concern I have had. I don’t feel alone in my business- I have a great team that has my back.

Dr. Russo provided me with compliance, safety, education and an ongoing support system. Aesthetic Mentor has also offered me the opportunity to teach students, which I feel is important for my career and resume.
