Where Can a Registered Nurse Do Botox?

There are so very many peoples that nurses employ injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers. Injectable trained and certified RNs work in spa settings, physicians’ offices, fitness centers, niche boutiques and anywhere else Botox is present.

Where Can You Inject Botox?

As a nurse injector in Botox training, you will initially learn the areas of the face appropriate for Botox administration. There are 3 areas of the face in which Botox injections are commonly used:

  • Between the brows. To reduce frown lines, Botox is administered directly into the muscles between the eyebrows.
  • The forehead. A lined, furrowed face is softened when Botox is applied to the forehead.
  • Crow’s feet. If you ever notice fine lines on the side of your eyes, Botox can be injected into the crow’s feet to create a more youthful appearance.

Advanced Injectable Techniques
As a cosmetic nurse, you will learn:

  • Off-label type Botox and dermal filler treatments. A Botox “Lip Pop,” one of the most popular off-label treatments, is designed to give patients a fuller lip.
  • Botox for an eyebrow arch. In fact, Botox injected into the brow depressors can create an eyebrow lift.
  • Botox for platysmal bands. Amazingly, Botox injections can relax this area and soften the platysmal bands.
  • Dermal fillers for under the eyes. To eliminate those dark circles that come with aging, dermal fillers are administered to the tear troughs to reduce the appearance of under eye bags.

For Physicians

Botox training is a wonderful opportunity for physicians who want to expand their practice. Doctors can increase revenue when they add cash-based procedures such as Botox/cosmetic injectables and laser treatments. In turn, the physician’s expanding practices subsequently require nursing staff. Many RNs take these courses to broaden their skill set and gain additional income or start a new full-time career as a cosmetic nurse. This is most certainly an ideal opportunity for professionals that wish to add variety to their work. Furthermore, it’s wonderful for anyone any eager for continuing education or ready to start a new career path.
