How Much Can I Make Performing Medical Aesthetics Treatments?

medical aestheticsThis is probably one of the most common questions we get asked.

Medical aesthetics is a multi-billion-dollar industry that’s expected to see continued growth. One of the reasons many physicians, nurses and medical professionals seek continuing education courses is to add an additional revenue stream to their practice.

Treatments like Botox are relatively quick as they can be completed in just a short office visit or during a lunch break. But overall, medical aesthetic treatments are cash-based procedures, meaning insurance will not cover the treatments.

How Much Revenue Can I Expect?

Last year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) published the national average for cosmetic treatments. We took those averages and calculated the potential revenue after one hour.

Medical Aesthetics Training

At National Laser Institute, we offer cosmetic laser training courses and CE/CME training courses for Botox and other cosmetic injectables. These courses can be completed in one to two weeks!

Our courses are led by some of the industry’s leading nurses, cosmetic laser techs and skincare specialists with seven to 20 years of experience in the medical aesthetics field. We want you only learning from the best!

Each course is divided into didactic and clinical hands-on training to give you the ultimate learning experience! In the classroom, you will learn things like treatment overviews, tissue interaction and patient care.

Clinical hands-on training is done in a luxury medical spa environment, complete with multiple treatment rooms and professional medical spa staff. You will watch comprehensive demonstrations no more than just a foot away from the training bed and have the opportunity to perform these treatments on scheduled clients. Your instructor will be by your side to answer any questions you might have.

We invite you to check out tens of thousands of National Laser Institute reviews from previous attendees like Dr. Ryan Krch who took several of our CE/CME courses. You can hear about his training experience in the video below!
