Medical Esthetics for Doctors, Nurses, and Nurse Practitioners

There are a handful of reasons why physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals are entering the field of medical esthetics in order to learn how to perform cosmetic Botox and dermal fillers. Medical esthetics is a billion dollar industry. The top nonsurgical treatments in the nation include Botox, dermal fillers, and laser skin rejuvenation procedures. Clients seeking these services will typically pay good money to continue to improve the youthfulness of their appearance. A typical Botox client may pay around $400-$500 while a dermal filler client may pay as much as a thousand dollars for one treatment.

“I have a family full of doctors, and they’re getting killed by insurance,” says Louis Silberman, CEO and founder of National Laser Institute. Many medical professionals aren’t getting properly reimbursed by insurance. Because medical esthetic treatments are a cosmetic service, there is no hassle of insurance included.

Physicians, nurses, and doctors don’t have to work long hours to make more money with medical esthetics. Botox may take about 5 minutes to perform while a few syringes of dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm or Voluma can be safely and effectively completed in 30 minutes or less.

Not only that, but cosmetic medicine is a fun and exciting business to be involved with. Clients love seeing youthful and rejuvenating improvements and will keep coming back to maintain their appearance or even try new services that you may offer.

Doctors, nurses, physicians, and medical professionals can check out National Laser Institute’s medical esthetic courses to learn more about Botox, dermal filler, and laser training. Whether you choose to offer these services part time or full time, medical esthetics is an amazing opportunity for any medical professional out there.
