Who Can Administer Botox?

botox trainingBotox (Botulinum toxin type A) is a cosmetic injectable used to smooth away wrinkles, and can be performed by doctors and physicians (MD and DO), nurses (RN), physician’s assistants (PA), and dentists who have received certification of Botox training. Before medical professionals enter a Botox training course they must show proof of their medical education. In Botox training courses, medical professionals will focus strongly on Botox injection safety. This is to ensure proper protocols when treating clients so safety measures can be carefully carried out.

Clients should be very cautious when considering “Botox parties,” “Botox bars,” and “esthetician injectors.” You do not want to receive Botox anywhere but a professional setting. This is because places like doctor’s offices and medical spas have materials on hand as well as a safe way to dispose of injection needles. Also, estheticians cannot legally practice Botox because they are not medical professionals. Seeking Botox from estheticians is not recommended.
