The program was wonderful! I loved the lecture and info/questions portion of the day, and will compliment what I learned from Dr. Russo with some research/rationale, etc. to become confident in the knowledge of Botox. I was really uneasy at the beginning portion of the ‘hands on’ training, but I have to compliment you again – I went from nurse to nurse and also Dr. Russo to learn each of their individual techniques and by the time I treated my 4th model, I was very comfortable with my technique and just needed to practice what I had learned. I was thrilled to be able to treat multiple areas including forehead, glabellar, crows feet, and lips.

Since I became a registered nurse I always wanted to become certified in Botox and fillers. There was nothing more frustrating than wanting to do something so bad but unable to find training in Massachusetts. I searched on the internet for a couple of years only to find courses either in Florida or on the West Coast. Not only did I not want to take the time off of work for training that I would have to pay for but the thought of paying for flights and hotel rooms was just not in my budget. Finally I found a course last June that was coming to Boston and training was only 1 day. Sounds great right?! The course was nothing but a waste of time and money. I was the only RN in the course, there was only one doctor who was training 25 people who were in the course. Everything seemed so crammed in 1 day and I felt alone and unsure while I was injecting my model. Needless to say I walked away with a certificate that I felt I never deserved. I still had that urge to inject but wanted to find the right course for me….I finally found it! I attended AM-Aesthetic Mentor a 2 day Botox and filler course. Not only was the class super informative but the hands on training was incredible! Having had the experience in another course, AM’s course blows them all away. Dr. Russo himself oversaw all the RN ‘s as they were injecting as well as having your own experienced RN stand next to you and critique you. I felt so confident after the course that I’ve been injecting Botox and fillers every week since and finally feel deserving of the certificate I earned. If I could give any advice to those looking for an amazing experience then the Aesthetic Mentor should be your first choice. It’s worth the money and you won’t regret it!

My Botox® and Fillers education classes at AM were extremely positive and rewarding! Dr. Russo, his nurse injectors Julie and Julie, and office manager Laurie did an amazing job teaching and facilitating the didactic and hands on training. Dr. Russo’s calmness and support throughout the training weekend helped me me feel less intimidated and I was able focus on learning the skills necessary to be a proficient nurse injector. The most valuable part of the classes was the hand on training. Jaclyn, Director of Education at Catherine Hinds provided us with an environment conducing for learning and practicality. I was able to bring friends to inject and the team made everyone feel welcome and safe. On the day I did not have any friends for models, Catherine Hinds provided plenty of models to perform the treatments. If you are looking to become a nurse injector, AM is the place to advance your education. You will gain the confidence and skills needed to be safe and successful. Also, once you join Dr. Russo and his team, your education and support does not end, you will always have a resource and a team who is behind you 100%! I would highly recommend Dr. Russo’s classes and learning from the best practitioners.

I had heard about nursing aesthetics from fellow RNs. I decided to take the Botox and Juvederm class with Dr. Russo. Dr. Russo gave a great presentation both days with techniques to use to make sure you are doing the procedures correctly. During the hands on portion of the course every nurse was able to inject the models. Dr. Russo and three registered nurses, who assist him in his practice, were there to help guide each student. It was a great experience and I enjoyed every bit of the class.

I’m so grateful to have taken Dr. Russo’s course offered at Catherine Hinds. By the end of both days I felt confident in both Botox and Juvederm injections, I loved how an entire day was dedicated to each product. Dr. Russo and his staff are fabulous!

I felt the classroom discussion with Dr. Russo and his staff was great and very informative. All in all, it was a blast and I’m thrilled that I finally took the steps to move into this field of medical aesthetics, as it’s been a goal of mine for the past few years. As you know, most courses for nurses trying to break into this field are not offered in Massachusetts, so ‘hooray’ for Dr. Russo and his staff!
