Aesthetic Nurse Training
Some people might ask, “What is an aesthetic nurse?” The answer is simple: An aesthetic nurse (sometimes referred to as a cosmetic nurse) is someone trained to perform Botox injections, laser treatments, dermal fillers, sclerotherapy, body contouring, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and other types of nonsurgical cosmetic services. These types of treatments fall into the medical aesthetics category.
Currently, the medical aesthetics industry is a $16 billion industry. Botox, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal are some of the most sought-after treatments with millions of treatments performed annually.
Medical professionals can receive training to become an aesthetic nurse and perform these in-demand services.
Career Opportunities As An Aesthetic Nurse
Potential employers include medical spas, private physicians, hospitals and clinics. There are even niche clinics that specialize in certain areas that may want to add an aesthetic nurse to their team.
Aesthetic nurses don’t just work in the medical field. Doctors in different industries are adding cosmetic nurses, because non-surgical aesthetic procedures are cash-based or a fee-for-service practice. You may find yourself working in a dermatology practice, laser clinic or fitness facility.
And there’s always the option to start your own business, too! While each state has its own regulations for becoming an aesthetic nurse, in most cases a cosmetic nurse must align with a medical professional. Make sure to do your research first if you are thinking about going this route to comply with your state’s regulations.
Becoming an aesthetic nurse is a wonderful opportunity if you want to add more skills to your repertoire. Many RNs take aesthetic nurse training to earn supplemental income.
