Botox treatments can be divided into two different categories: cosmetic and medical. When used for medical purposes, Botox is capable of treating migraines, uncontrolled muscle spasms, overactive bladders, and more. As a cosmetic service, a Botox treatment can rid unwanted wrinkles in the forehead, within crow’s feet, and more.
Millions of people actively seek out Botox cosmetic treatments. In fact, Botox is actually the #1 nonsurgical cosmetic treatment performed in the United States. Not only can a Botox treatment restore your youth, but it does this without any downtime.
Botox was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002 and works by temporarily freezing targeted muscles so that they relax, which provides an overall smoother appearance. When injected, a Botox treatment may last between 3-5 months.
In the U.S., cosmetic Botox treatments must be performed by medical professionals who have been trained and certified to perform these injections. For medical professionals looking to add a new skill set, National Laser Institute offers Botox training courses.

In order to provide a well-rounded aesthetic knowledge to clients, many medical professionals choose to also become trained in dermal fillers and sclerotherapy.

Our Botox training classes focus highly on safety. We thoroughly cover patient selection, how lines and folds occur, how to properly treat wrinkles, the science and history of Botox, risks and benefits, and–of course–advanced injection techniques with hands-on Botox treatment experience.

While some may think clients only seek out dermatologists or plastic surgeons for cosmetic treatments, that isn’t always the case. Many people prefer building relationships with their family doctor, nurse, gynecologist and feel more comfortable seeking them out for other treatments, such as Botox. Instead of clients seeking treatments elsewhere, medical professionals can capitalize on providing these in their own work place. And because there is no hassle of insurance with cosmetic services, medical professionals can also capitalize on the benefits.
