What is Botox?

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a protein used to treat and prevent facial wrinkles. Botox temporarily relaxes the facial muscles, paralyzing the ones that cause fine lines and wrinkles. The neurotoxin is used to treat dynamic facial lines, which appear as a result of muscle movement around the eyes and mouth, as well as in between the eyebrows.

Botox is also used to treat medical conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the hands, feet and other areas). The botulinum toxin is marketed under the names Dysport, Xeomin and Botox.

 There are three common areas of the face where Botox is injected:

  • Between the eyebrows. A few units of Botox injected between the eyebrows can reduce the appearance of frown lines, the two vertical lines that create an “11.”
  • The forehead. Botox can be applied to the forehead to reduce the appearance of a furrowed face.
  • Crow’s feet. To create an overall younger appearance, Botox can be injected on the side of your eyes, which are most commonly referred to as crow’s feet.

Why Should I Learn Botox?

For one, botulinum toxin (Botox) is the leading nonsurgical medical aesthetic treatment in the nation. It’s been ranked as the #1 noninvasive, cosmetic service in the U.S. for the past decade. In 2016, there were over 7 million Botox treatments performed in the United States alone, with a 4% increase from the year prior.

Another reason Botox and dermal fillers are so popular is that the treatment can be performed in 30 minutes or less, making it a simple cosmetic injectable procedure to schedule in for a majority of clientele.

Because Botox averages at $500 per treatment, physicians, nurses and medical professionals have the opportunity to capitalize on this earning potential by becoming a cosmetic nurse and receiving their Botox certification.

Botox Injection Training: What to Expect

Our Botox injection training courses are divided into two parts: classroom education and clinical hands-on training.

In the classroom portion of this course, physicians, nurses and medical professionals will learn everything they need to know about injectable procedures like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin from industry experts who up to 20 years of experience in the field. Topics covered during didactic training include:

  • Patient assessment and consultation for cosmetic procedures like botulinum toxin (Botox) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma)
  • Indications and contraindications for Botox and dermal fillers
  • Aesthetics overview
  • The aging process: Why lines/folds occur and how to treat them
  • History and science of Botox and dermal fillers
  • Botox and dermal filler injection techniques
  • Safety protocols, risks and benefits of Botox and dermal fillers
  • Combining dermal fillers, Voluma and Botox, upper, mid and lower face contouring

During the clinical hands-on training portion of the course, students are put into small, intimate groups where they watch live demonstrations no more than a few feet away from the training bed. They will have the opportunity to perform Botox and fillers on real clients within an educational setting. Our expert instructors are by your side the entire time in case you have any questions. We want all attendees to benefit from individual attention from the multiple instructors who are training you.
