How to Become Botox Certified

If you are a physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, or dentist, then you qualify to become certified in Botox. Botox is manufactured by Allergan and was FDA approved in 2002 for cosmetic use. Botox training allows you to administer Botox safely and effectively to your clients.

In order to become Botox certified, you must attend a medical aesthetics school. National Laser Institute offers CME and CE Botox training courses for medical professionals, which can be complete over the weekend. This Botox course awards Botox certification to medical professionals upon completion of the course.

Currently, Botox is the #1 nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the nation, according to the ASAPS. Over 5 million people in the U.S. alone received Botox treatments. The appeal of Botox is that it gives rejuvenated, youthful results without the downtime recovery period of surgery. Clients see results very quickly, so it capitalizes on instant gratification. There is also less of a risk with Botox than there is going under the knife.

Become Botox certified by attending National Laser Institute’s CME course and begin your full or part time practice of offering Botox.
