WHY AESTHETIC MENTOR

Founded in 2011 by Harvard-trained, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph A. Russo, Aesthetic Mentor has successfully trained over 3,000 medical professionals over the past 10 years. Our mission is to cultivate safe, successful medical aesthetic providers with industry-leading hands-on training and post-certification career development.

BEGIN TREATING PATIENTS RIGHT AWAY

Dr. Russo and his team of expert mentors will guide you through a blend of didactic and hands-on neurotoxin training, beginning in our virtual classroom of on-demand curriculum. This is followed by hands-on injectable training in a clinical environment where you will treat a minimum of 4 models. Our 2:1 student-to-educator ratio provides an unsurpassed learning experience, giving you the support and confidence you need to begin treating patients right away.

WHAT ARE NEUROTOXINS

Neurotoxins are purified forms of botulinum toxin A marketed commercially under the brand names; Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®. Since Botox received its first FDA-approval for cosmetic use in 2002, neurotoxins have revolutionized the way society approaches aesthetic treatments and aging. Neurotoxin is not only the most sought-after injectable treatment but also the gateway to all other injectable skills.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER TRANSITIONING MY CAREER TO AESTHETICS

The aesthetic market is booming, and the demand for aesthetic nurses and injectors has never been greater. The national average salary for an aesthetic nurse is around $90,000, with the capability of earning double or triple that depending on your experience. Compared to hospital work, many nurses find the private practice setting more conducive to establishing a greater work/life balance.

Neurotoxins yield compelling results and high levels of patient satisfaction without the expense and long recovery times associated with traditional plastic surgery.

If you are a healthcare provider frustrated with diminishing insurance reimbursements, or you’re a nurse seeking personal and financial freedom, adding aesthetic treatments to your practice can provide powerful revenue streams.

Introduction to Neurotoxin was an informative, organized class. Great instructors and I left feeling confident and comfortable with the skills that were taught. Thank you!

—Tristen D.

Dr. Russo is amazing. The class was small and intimate, which made for a better learning experience. During the hands on portion, the instructors were extremely knowledgeable but friendly and laid back. Which again, made for better learning. I loved everything about the course. Worth every penny. Thank you!
