The North American facial injectable market is expected to grow to $5.8 billion by 2024 – wow!
With the popularity of Botox, dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables on the rise, more doctors, nurses and medical professionals are seeking out medical aesthetics training and offering their clients more treatments than ever before!
If you have a passion for helping people look and feel their best, you can learn some of the most in-demand injectable treatments with just 1-2 weeks of training from the National Laser Institute.
What Injectables Will I Be Learning During Training?
During cosmetic injectable training, you will have the opportunity to learn and work with some of the most popular products, including:
The first category of injectable treatments you will learn during training is dermal fillers (sometimes referred to as facial fillers.) Fillers are used to replace volume loss in the face. The most common areas fillers are used are:
- Nasolabial folds. These run from the outside of your nostrils to the corner of your mouth.
- Marionette lines. These are the lines that run from the corners of your mouth down to your chin.
- Nasojugal groove (tear troughs). This is the area under your eyes.
Dermal fillers can also be used to restore lost volume in the temples, reduce the appearance of protruding veins on aging hands and lift drooping eyebrows and eyelids. And who can forget fillers to plump the lips?
Fillers are divided into two types: hyaluronic acid (HA) and non-hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid fillers work like a sponge; They bind with water in the skin and plump the areas in which they are injected. Non-hyaluronic acid fillers, on the other hand, stimulate collagen production in the area into which they are injected.
The next category of injectables is neurotoxins, which includes Botox. Neurotoxins are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movement by paralyzing the muscles. Three areas commonly treated by Botox are:
- Between the brows. Botox between the eyebrows can be used to reduce the look of frown lines – the two vertical lines between your eyebrows that create an “11” when your face is relaxed.
- The forehead. Botox can be applied to the forehead to reduce the appearance of a lined, furrowed face.
- Crow’s feet. To reduce the appearance of noticeable lines on the side of your eyes, Botox is injected into the crow’s feet to create a younger appearance for your face overall.
Neurotoxins can also be used to treat “smoker’s lines,” platysmal bands in the neck and fine lines in the cheeks. Botox typically lasts between 3 to 4 months before the muscle regains strength and movement.
The latest category of injectables is fat-dissolving compounds. Kybella is currently the only FDA-approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, or “double chin.” Kybella treatments are done in-office and generally require 3 to 5 treatment sessions about six weeks apart for the best results.
