BOTOX® is the leading non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the US and is used by millions of people every year who wish to erase wrinkles and fine lines. The result is a more youthful appearance – and it’s no small wonder why so many people are electing to undergo this simple, straightforward treatment. The same can be said of fillers. Of course, with an increasing number of patients comes the need for more nurses to administer BOTOX® and other injectable treatments. If you’d like to train to give BOTOX® and filler injections, you’re probably wondering how to achieve that goal.
Before committing to a course, you’ll want to ensure that it is accredited, reputable and meets all the relevant requirements. Joseph A. Russo is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can oversee training and provide expertise in Massachusetts. With first-class training from one of the most experienced surgeons in the area, you’re standing yourself in good stead to learn how to competently apply BOTOX® and filler injections to achieve the best possible results.
While classroom education can teach you a lot about how BOTOX® works and how to administer it, the only way to truly get a feel for being a BOTOX® and/or filler nurse is to be confident enough to be hands-on. The good news is that if you’re already familiar with other cosmetic and beauty techniques, you will likely already have the confidence to work with patients. If not, it’s something you can learn with time, and the key is to not be too anxious.
Cosmetic treatments are constantly evolving, and what is considered the norm today might not be in five years’ time. You should be willing to train and retrain to learn the latest techniques to keep on top of the latest advancements in the beauty and cosmetic industries, including BOTOX® and filler injections.
