Botox Training Courses: 5 Questions To Ask

Do the Botox courses have an extensive overview of anatomy?

Botulinum toxin is a facial cosmetic treatment that is injected into the muscles to relax and reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles. A Botox administer must have a basic understanding of complex facial anatomy to be able to deliver these cosmetic injections. There are several nerves, muscles and blood vessels present beneath the skin, so care should be taken while injecting. Knowledge of facial anatomy will have treat patients more accurately and produce excellent results.

Does the school offer clinical hands-on practice on live patients?

Botox training should include extensive hands-on training. At National Laser Institute, we schedule real, paying clients, so you will feel comfortable as you gain confidence in your new skill set. Practical experience is necessary to build confidence and proficiency as a cosmetic injector. Hands-on training is important for injectable treatments because it helps attendees understand how they can achieve the desired results and minimize the risk of any complications.

What kind of track record does the school have?

The popularity of Botox has created a huge demand for highly skilled injectors. Botox has gone mainstream, and you can expect to see a plethora of new medical aesthetic “schools” opening their doors.  Not all medical aesthetic schools are created equal: just because someone says they can train you, it does not mean they have the track record to prove it.

The longer a medical aesthetics training program is in place, the more solid the infrastructure will be. Any kinks in the training programs will have been worked out so you will know what to expect, and your training experience should run smoothly. Your training provider should have a proven track record, with proper accreditation and licensing which is essential for your training success. The National Laser Institute was a pioneer in the medical aesthetics industry offering required training by the State of Arizona in 2004.
