Botox® is increasingly being offered in more than just the dermatologist’s office. It’s popping up in the most unexpected places because everyone wants it. To meet the demand, surgeons, internal medicine physicians, naturopathic physicians, doctors and nurses of every kind are looking for Botox training courses. But along with this trend, there is an interesting fact that you would not expect to see.
“These doctors and nurses are not quitting their practices to start fresh in the medical aesthetics industry. They want to take Botox training courses so they can work with well patients and have happy results. Everyone wants this. And it helps them to basically enhance their own practice,” says Louis Silberman, Founder, and CEO of the National Laser Institute.
Naturally beautiful, wrinkle-free skin is what people want, whether they are 35 or 65. We are seeing the younger generation between the ages of 24-35 come in regularly for preventative Botox. And the older generations between the ages of 35-65 visit us every 3 months for corrective and restorative Botox.
When it comes to Botox, your patients are looking for the right cosmetic injector to help them achieve naturally beautiful results. Because Botox is so popular, you need to differentiate yourself as an expert Botox injector. If you are looking to provide Botox and dermal filler treatments, we will show you how you can advance your career in the medical aesthetic industry with the most advanced cosmetic injectables and Botox training courses.
Botox Training Courses: 5 Questions To Ask
1)Does the school offer hands-on clinical practice on live patients?
Hands-on training with live, paying clients offers huge value for your learning experience. By training with actual paying clients who are models in our luxury private med spa environment, you will feel comfortable as you gain confidence in your new skill set.
Classroom instruction when attending a Botox training course should be the first step in your training. This is your chance to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the face and injection sites. You will gain background knowledge pertaining to the medical aesthetics field. There will also be practice activities to help you learn how to properly inject Botox.
The Botox training course should then provide you with hands-on experience. This will be your chance to work with patients directly under the direction of your instructor. You will be able to receive expert coaching as you are administering Botox injections when you are gaining this experience.
The National Laser Institute is the first school in the country to provide clinical hands-on instruction via it’s on-campus luxury retail medical spa. We have a dedicated call center staff of 15, who are always ready to schedule live, paying clients to model for Botox treatments in our training environment. We are open 7 days a week with early morning through evening appointments available.
2) Who teaches the classes?
At the National Laser Institute, we train doctors and nurses from around the world how to expertly administer medical aesthetics techniques and technologies. We take pride in knowing the doctors and nurses who train with us master our world-class injection techniques, and the aestheticians and techs gain hands-on experience in the best aesthetic industry practices.

3) Is it an approved course for CME / CEU credits?
If you are a physician or a nurse practitioner who is thinking about expanding your practice with medical aesthetics, you will want to make sure you get CME or CEU credit for any classes you take.
The National Laser Institute offers the most comprehensive courses ranging anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks. The Arizona Board for Private Post Secondary Education licenses National Laser Institute as a vocational training program in the state of Arizona.
The American Academy of Family Physicians has reviewed National Laser Institute’s Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses and approved them for up to 66 prescribed credits. This continuing education activity was approved by the Western Multi-State Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
The National Laser Institute is approved as a career school by the Texas Workforce Commission and is authorized as an agency approved laser hair removal training course by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
4) What kind of track record does the school have?
The popularity of Botox has created a huge demand for highly skilled injectors. Botox has gone mainstream, and you can expect to see a plethora of new medical aesthetic “schools” opening their doors. Not all medical aesthetic schools are created equal: just because someone says they can train you, it does not mean they have the track record to prove it.
How many years has the school been training nurses and doctors? The longer a medical aesthetics training program is in place, the more solid the infrastructure will be. Any kinks in the training programs will have been worked out so you will know what to expect, and your training experience should run smoothly. Your training provider should have a proven track record, with proper accreditation and licensing which is essential for your training success. The National Laser Institute was a pioneer in the medical aesthetics industry offering required training by the State of Arizona in 2004.
5) Where are they located?
Botox training courses are an investment in your future success as a medical aesthetic practitioner. As with any investment, you will want to make sure your return on investment in sound. You will want to factor in travel expenses if you need to travel out of state to attend your Botox training courses.
At the National Laser Institute, over fifty percent of our students fly in from out of state and out of the country to our Scottsdale and Dallas locations. But we also bring our training to you to make it more affordable for our students. The National Laser Institute also offers destination events in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Nashville.

Are you a medical professional looking for ways to advance your career in medical aesthetics? Or maybe you’d just like to take your career into a new direction away from the hospital floor? “The great thing about Botox training courses, is they give you the opportunity to start offering Botox even one day, or one hour a week. You can pick up $2000 in revenue at $1000 product cost. That’s $4000 per month, or $48,000 a year working one hour a week if you have 4 clients in that hour,” says Louis Silberman.
Botox training courses can provide you with a very lucrative career in the medical aesthetic industry. Everything in this business is reputation. The National Laser Institute is recognized across the United States and around the globe as the gold standard of education in the cosmetic laser and medical aesthetics industry. The following review from Nurse Practitioner, Gina, provides a sneak peek at what our Botox training courses are like.
“I have been in the medical industry for the past 5 years as a nurse. I enjoy what I do however was looking for something that offered me a sense of renewed passion. I went to the National Laser Institute because I wanted to see what medical aesthetics was all about! I have never had training outside of a hospital and like the idea of having a clinic to practice cosmetic medicine in and move away from the burnout of working in a hospital that so many RN’s like myself experience with long shifts, high stress jobs and not a ton of time to have a nice social life! I heard about the National Laser Institute and after doing my due diligence and looking into my options, I decided the National Laser Institute was the only choice for me. I am so excited not only was the course everything I hoped it would be but it exceeded all my expectation immensely! Everyone at the National Laser Institute was great. In fact, Chelsy, who works in graduate services, landed me an interview with a doctor’s office in San Diego looking for cosmetic nurse injectors! So the best part is, within 2 weeks of receiving my training certifications of Botox, fillers and lasers course I landed the perfect job! Yay! I am so excited I would highly recommend the National Laser Institute, not only did I receive the best education but they delivered so much more. I am happy to say I have found the passion I was looking for and I’m excited for my new career in medical aesthetics! Who could ask for anything more.”
