How Can I Become a Cosmetic Nurse?

How Can I Become a Cosmetic NurseAre you a registered nurse who is tired of working long hours in a hospital setting?

Now is the perfect time to consider a career as a cosmetic nurse!

The training to become a cosmetic nurse doesn’t take a month or even a year to complete.

In fact, at National Laser Institute, you can receive Botox training in as little as two to three days!

What is a Cosmetic Nurse?

Cosmetic nurses are registered nurses who administer aesthetic treatments and procedures. RNs receive specialized training in cosmetic treatments like Botox injections, dermal fillers, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacials, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal and more.

While cosmetic nursing is a relatively new and evolving field, an industry-standard training path hasn’t been finalized as it has for most other nursing specialties.

The good news, however, is most training programs for cosmetic nursing can be completed in as little as a weekend to two full weeks of training, depending on how much training you are looking to receive.

What Training Do I Need To Become a Cosmetic Nurse?

Aesthetic nursing training programs focus on skin and skin care, particularly facial skin and cosmetic treatments that alter a client’s appearance or repair damage. During Botox training, expect to learn things like:

  • Skin anatomy
  • Common dermal afflictions
  • Botox and dermal filler injection technique
  • Patient selection criteria
  • Pre and post-treatment care
  • And more!

What Will My Job Duties Be?

Regardless of which type of practice you work for, you will study the medical history of your client and consult with them about:

  • The results they hope to achieve.
  • The number of treatments needed.
  • What each type of cosmetic treatment is likely to achieve.
  • Any side effects or potential complications.

As a cosmetic nurse injector, you will create a personalized treatment plan to address their specific concerns.

Possible aesthetic treatments a Botox nurse administers may include Botox (botulinum toxin), dermal fillers, laser hair removal, cellulite reduction, body contouring (CoolSculpting) and more!

After completing a treatment session, you’ll assess the outcome of the procedure and provide advice on proper skin care.

At National Laser Institute, we offer a variety of Botox and dermal filler courses that can be completed in just two weeks. In a rush? We even offer courses that can be taken in two to three days.

Each cosmetic injection course is divided into two sections: didactic (classroom) and clinical hands-on training.

The classroom portion will prepare you for hands-on training. You will learn about Botox injection techniques, types of facial fillers, facial anatomy, patient selection, pre- and post-patient care, and more.

During hands-on training, you will watch comprehensive Botox and dermal filler demonstrations and have the opportunity to administer these cosmetic treatments yourself!

While other esthetic schools have their attendees administer Botox and dermal fillers on each other, we spend millions of dollars each year to schedule clients for you to work on and gain real world experience in a medical spa setting!

By the end of your course, you will feel comfortable and confident performing some of the most popular cosmetic injectables, including Botox, dermal fillers, Kybella, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and more!
