How To Become A Lip Injector

Whether your client has a “gummy” smile, wrinkles above their lips or just want the perfect pout, there is a nonsurgical solution that can help: dermal fillers.

Facial fillers have become one of the most popular anti-aging in the medical aesthetics marketplace. Year after year, medical professionals are treating millions of clients who are seeking nonsurgical treatments to achieve fuller lips.

Since more clients are seeking dermal fillers treatments to enhance their lips, businesses are looking to hire cosmetic injectors who are well versed in cosmetic injections.

So how do you become a lip injector?

Before you can begin offering dermal fillers treatments, you must attend a medical aesthetics training school and receive your Botox and dermal fillers certification. The National Laser Institute offers dermal fillers training where you will learn cosmetic injection techniques in addition to other treatments for younger looking skin.

How To Become A Lip Injector

Dermal fillers training is a requirement for physicians, nurses and medical professionals who want to become a lip injector.

The National Laser Institute offers dermal fillers training where attendees will learn how to administer dermal fillers and other treatments. These courses will teach you the latest and greatest cosmetic injection techniques for fuller lips and other anti-aging services that can enhance these results.

For a comprehensive learning experience, these continuing education courses include classroom education and hands-on practice.

In the classroom, your instructors will lead discussions about the medical aesthetics industry and what to expect when you become a cosmetic injector. Topics include:

  • Recognizing the unique characteristics of a cosmetic client
  • How lines, folds and wrinkles occur
  • Cosmetic injection techniques
  • The risks and benefits of different cosmetic injections
  • The different types of cosmetic fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, etc.)

Dermal fillers courses also include hands-on training in a medical spa environment. You will be placed in a small, intimate group in which you’ll watch facial filler demonstrations as well as treat scheduled clients to gain real-world experience with various cosmetic injection techniques.

Cosmetic Injection Techniques For Lip Injectors

Dermal fillers are the most popular method of lip plumping. Made of hyaluronic acid (HA), facial fillers are a gel-like substance that can add fullness to areas that have thinned out over time due to aging. They are used to treat volume loss in the cheeks, lips and around the mouth.

One technique you will learn during dermal fillers training is called lip tenting, a simple method for better lip enhancement. Lip tenting involves lifting the white roll around the mouth to optimize the canine arch projection.

Instead of injecting parallel to the lip contour, you inject almost vertically from the white roll, which is formed by the bulging of the orbicularis muscle beneath the skin’s surface. This lip augmentation technique provides you with optimal control over the shape and volume of the lips, especially when the lips are asymmetrical.
