Botox Certification FAQs

Botox Certification

For medical professionals wanting to learn a little more about Botox certification and courses, we provide a tell-all FAQ section below in order to help answer all your questions.

What types of medical professionals can perform Botox?

It is always best to check with your state’s regulations, but for most, MD, RN, LPN, NP, DO, LVN, and Dentists are capable of earning Botox certification in order to offer this service to clients.

Do I need aesthetician certification before I enroll in a Botox course?

No, all you need is a Botox certification from a medical esthetic school saying that you’ve completed Botox training in order to practice Botox.

Do I need insurance to practice Botox?

You will need malpractice insurance and/or a form of professional liability insurance for aesthetic treatments.

How long does it take to get Botox certified?

National Laser Institute, the leading medical esthetic school in the nation, offers a Botox course that provides both classroom and hands-on Botox injection training in one full day. We also offer add-on days if you are looking to become trained in dermal fillers (two day course), cosmetic laser treatments, bioidentical hormone replacement, and other types of skin rejuvenation. Our longest medical professional course is 11 days, and it is by far our most in-demand course.

Botox courses at National Laser Institute are taught by experienced medical professionals who have been in the aesthetic industry for many years. You will receive hands-on training with scheduled clients in order to gain real world experience practicing the best injection techniques.

What other aesthetic treatments can I perform as a medical professional?

With the proper training, medical professionals can also become certified in cosmetic laser treatments (laser hair reduction, IPL skin rejuvenation, laser tattoo removal, radiofrequency skin rejuvenation, and many more), sclerotherapy, dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, etc.), chemical peels, and much more. We offer a wide range of these courses at National Laser Institute!

Allergan is the direct manufacturer of Botox, and it is wise to order from them in order to avoid buying illegitimate Botox treatments.
