Aesthetics Training for Nurses

Empower yourself with professional training in aesthetic medicine


Can nurses do botox and filler courses? What qualification is required to become an aesthetic practitioner? What are my career options? Read on below to help clear those misunderstandings and start your journey as an Aesthetic practitioner!

Working in clinics.

After completing our Foundation Botox and Filler Course, you are already set up to start your journey in Aesthetic Medicine. Working without a prescribing qualification is possible would require working in conjunction with a prescriber as Botox is prescription only. For those who would like to gain some practical experience prior to working independently and setting up their own practice, finding work in clinics is the preferred option as it provides support in the beginning period of your specialty.

You should aim to seek work in clinics and with practitioners that have prescribers that consult and prescribe for patients. Essentially, you will be working under them as they would also be responsible for clinical evaluation and management of any issues following the procedure.

Working with a Prescriber.

A prescriber can be a doctor, dentist or a prescribing nurse or pharmacist. It is possible you already know a qualified prescriber you can work with. However, if this is not the case, we would be able to link you up with a prescriber local to your area as soon as you have completed our Foundation Botox and Dermal filler training course.

It is very important to understand that although you would be administering the botox, the prescriber is ultimately the person who is responsible for the treatment and therefore the outcomes. Choosing a prescriber requires not just trust, but also confidence that they are appropriately trained and experienced in the knowledge of botox themselves.

Qualify for the V300 Course to prescribe yourself.

Working independently is also an option but requires you to be a prescriber yourself. This may be preferred for those looking to set up a practice for example. The course is available in several universities in the UK and would take an average of 6 months to complete. However, you would need to have practiced as a registered nurse for a minimum of three years to qualify.

Becoming a prescriber will allow you more independence. However, it would be recommended to undertake the Foundation Botox and Filler course prior to making the commitment (time wise and financially!) to such a demanding course.

Why Train In The Aesthetic Field?

It is well-known that the private sector pays well. The income of an aesthetic nurse significantly exceeds that of an NHS nurse. The financial prospects of an aesthetic practice is lucrative; aesthetic nurses can potentially double their current salaries by administering Botox and other fillers regularly.

A career in cosmetic medicine gives you the flexibility to be independent and work the hours and schedule that works best for your lifestyle.

As a nurse, you already have an edge in terms of aesthetics. You will be familiar with anatomy, how to interact with patients, and how to deal with patient problems. Most training courses at HSI may be completed in a weekend, with as much hands on experience as possible and as much ongoing support as needed.

A career in cosmetic medicine allows you to interact with patients on a one-to-one basis. The flexibility of the work allows you to better understand your patients and have continuity and follow-through as they visit you every 3-6 months.

As a nurse, you may feel short on time with patients. However, when you perform aesthetic treatments, you will discover that you may establish longer and stronger relationships with patients. As your patients return for repeat treatments, you will have a higher level of job satisfaction since you will be making them feel and look their best!

Cosmetic procedures are elective and patient satisfaction levels are high. Therefore, if you want to see happy, content patients, then you should definitely train yourself in aesthetic medicine.

💭Have You Ever thought :

👉🏼What lies beneath the orbicularis oculi ? 
👉🏼Why do I need to have the correct depth ?
👉🏼How to avoid an asymmetric smile, periorbital edema or a shelf like look at the lid/cheek junction ?

⚠️We all know that when treating crows feet, we are administering botox into the orbicularis oculi, and that there are complications but which and how? 
‼️Too inferior or deep🟰 an asymmetric smile 
(you’ve hit the zygomaticus minor muscle and major if you’re really too inferior!) 

‼️Too medially 🟰 periorbital edema 
(and you’re the periorbital region )

Located just underneath the skin, the orbicularis oculi has multiple origin and insertion points. A paired muscle, that overlies the periorbital region in a circular manner.

⚠️The wrong location, the wrong depth can result you injecting botox into a completely different muscle.
Welcome to the under eye region, an area of the face that can often show signs of aging such as wrinkles, hollows, and dark circles. Today, I want to share with you how fillers can be used to address these concerns by injecting them into different layers of the skin.

Using a needle, we can inject fillers into the dermis layer of the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This can help to smooth out the texture of the skin and create a more youthful and refreshed look. However, it’s important to note that injecting fillers into this layer requires specialized training and experience to ensure safe and effective results.

In addition to the dermis layer, fillers can also be injected into the bone to help address deeper hollows and shadows under the eyes. This technique requires a higher level of expertise as it involves precise placement of the filler to achieve the desired outcome.

Lastly, fillers can be injected into the fat compartment of the under eye region using a cannula. This method can help to add volume and smooth out any irregularities in the fat pads under the eyes. Again, specialized training and experience are crucial for safe and effective results.

Overall, the use of fillers in the under eye region can provide a non-surgical solution to address signs of aging and enhance the appearance of the face. However, it’s important to seek out a qualified and experienced provider who has received proper training in the use of fillers in this delicate area.

If you’re interested in learning more about how fillers can benefit you, please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule a consultation. Let’s work together to help you achieve your aesthetic goals!

The mentalis muscle is a facial muscle located in the chin area. It originates from the mandible and extends downward to the skin of the chin. The primary function of the mentalis muscle is to control the movement and position of the lower lip and the skin of the chin. It plays an important role in activities such as speaking, smiling, and pouting.

In addition to its role in facial expression, the mentalis muscle also helps to maintain the position of the lower front teeth and the shape of the lower lip. Dysfunction or hyperactivity of the mentalis muscle can lead to the development of chin wrinkles, which are vertical lines that appear on the skin of the chin. Understanding the anatomy and function of the mentalis muscle is important for healthcare providers when performing aesthetic procedures in the chin area.

Aesthetic medicine is an art. It's not enough to know facial anatomy or to be a good injector. The best aesthetic doctor has an artistic eye. Sometimes this is a skill that can be developed over years. Being able to assess a fa ce within seconds of walking into a room. Knowing exactly how injectables can be used for subtle and natural results.
The end result should not be obvious to an untrained eye.
It's such a shame to see overfilled faces exaggerating proportions. When really, the main aims are to restore volume lost or correct natural imbalances.

As the years some procedures get unnecessarily more complicated without much added benefits. Risks / complications have increased: more inexperienced practitioners , inadequate techniques, increasing consumer demand for bolder augmentation. 

There are many ways to enter aesthetic medicine from short one day courses to teach basics to longer fellowship programs for advance skills at @harleystreetinstitute
