Texas Botox Certification Requirements

botox certification requirements texasTexas Botox Certification Requirements are a bit complex. Nowadays, anyone interested in treating must be certified. An interest in Cosmetic injectables, including Botox and dermal fillers, has pushed the need for a big training market. And, as Botox can help address signs of aging, it has a wide range of appeal.

Botox not only has wide appeal, but both sexes also find it quite useful. In fact, Botox has helped more than 1m male and females to date! This explains the spike in searches near the end of 2019, as well as the estimated rise for 2020+. Why are so many professionals interested in their Botox Certs in Texas? The answer is, money! With 29 million people living in the Lone Star state, falling short only to California, there’s more than enough clients to go around.

Our vision at the National Laser Institute is to help anyone looking to expand their skill-set. We offer a CE/CME injection course that covers everything the medical professional needs to know. That’s not to mention our emphasis on real world hand-on training.

Why Get Botox Certified in Texas?

When you get your cert to inject Botox, you’ll have the skills required to work in any office in Texas. Plus, potential employers usually look for certs. first, and prioritize accordingly. This means, anyone who’s completed training will stick out in a pile of applicants right off the bat.

Rest assured, anyone who receives instruction from NLI will have what they need to deliver results. And, because we focus on safety, your employer’s will also have peace of mind hiring.

Day Spa or Med Spa’s?

We’ll take a look at some of the possible places you can work after with a Botox Certification:

Day Spa

Day Spa’s typically offer cosmetic only services. Here you will find massages, facials, body, and nail treatments. Similarly, make-up  services are also offered.

However, as these services are non-invasive and do not require medical tools, they’re restricted to the first layer of skin. All Botox treatments require a physician be present, no exceptions! And, as day spa’s typically do not have a Physician on staff, they do not offer Botox.

Med Spa

Opening a MedSpa can have it’s perks. Medical professionals already have many of the skills and know-how required. So, naturally, this makes the transition from a Hospital setting to a MedSpa pretty easy.

If you do choose to open a MedSpa on your own, hiring trained staff should be priority number one. And, in Texas, that means anyone with a cert. A direct result of having more certified workers is a larger list of services to offer.

For example, you can offer the following treatments with a well staffed office:

  • Hair removal
  • Acne treatment
  • IPL Photorejuvenation
  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Spider vein removal

On the same note, you’ll also find laser facials, abrasion treatments, skin care, peels, and skin tightening in any med spa. If you still have questions in regards to Texas Botox Certification Requirements, just give us a call: 800.982.6817

Aestheticians In Texas

Texas Botox Certification Requirements state that, you must be a licensed medical professional to inject. But, that doesn’t mean others are out of luck when it comes to finding a job. Any professional practice will benefit greatly from having laser techs on staff.

Botox Injection Certification In Texas

If you haven’t met Texas Botox certification requirements, you cannot perform any treatment classified as medical. Because dermal fillers affect the soft living layers of skin, they fall into the medical category. Therefore, you cannot inject Botox at a med spa unless you are licensed.

Botox Injections

Botox was first approved by the FDA in 2002 (man how time flies!). And, we’ve been using them ever since. You can use Botox for anything wrinkle-related, from forehead lines to crows feet. Likewise, Botox can also deliver results when used “off-label.”

Most treatments are quick, require little down time, and deliver results in as little as 24 hours. Likewise, quick treatment times normally equals more clients serviced per/day.

Off Label Use

Along with general uses, Botox has also been used to treat other things as well. That is, conditions not listed on the label. You may think off-label sounds scary, but it’s really nothing to be worried about. It simply means a practical use has been found outside of FDA guidelines.

FDA Approved Uses:

  • Chronic Migraines
  • Excessive underarm sweating
  • Overactive bladder
  • Severe neck spasms
  • Crossed eyes

Non-FDA Approved Uses:

  • Depression
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Abnormal heartbeat
  • Severely cold hands
  • Cleft Lip scars in babies
  • Painful sex
