When Considering Cosmetic Injections, Proper Training Is A Must!

botox trainingHollywood elites are credited for propelling cosmetic injections into the spotlight nearly a decade ago in their quest for perfect skin and fuller lips.

Today, however, celebs and reality TV stars aren’t the only ones seeking Botox, dermal fillers and the like. In 2017, over 17.5 million minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were requested by men, women and even millennials.

Skin care specialists in the medical aesthetics industry find most of their clients seek non-invasive treatments to look and feel refreshed, as well as achieve a self-esteem boost!

For physicians or nurses thinking one day they would like to transition to the aesthetics side of the business, Botox training is a must!

Botox Training Is A Must

Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment and an essential part of aesthetic medicine. Medical practices that offer aesthetic treatments like Botox and dermal fillers can earn significant profits by adding these procedures to their list of services.

If you are interested in expanding your skill set to include cosmetic injections, training is a must! Medical professionals can earn their Botox injection certification by attending a medical esthetics school like National Laser Institute.

Not only will you receive classroom education, but you will also gain valuable hands-on practice during Botox injection training. CE/CME education is essential for providing your future clients safe and effective treatments.

Injection Techniques For The Best Results

During Botox training, one of the most important things you will learn is proper injection techniques. Administering Botox too close to the orbital rim, for example, may result in a brow and/or eyelid ptosis (drooping) during a Botox brow lift.

A dermal fillers lips treatment requires the injector to tent and aspirate. These techniques help avoid the vascular supply and avoid complications like skin necrosis, ulceration and scarring if an intra-arterial injection of filler occurs.

Other injection pearls medical professionals learn during a Botox training course include:

  • When treating around the eyes, inject obliquely to the skin to lessen the chance of deep injections or injuries in case a client suddenly moves.
  • Pinch or gently rub the adjacent skin to minimize patient discomfort by “confusing” the sensory sensation of the injection.
  • To reduce the risk of bruising and inflammation, inject into the subcutaneous tissue planes.
  • Stretch the skin in the lower orbicularis area to direct the Botox in the subcutaneous plane.
