Guide To Becoming A Cosmetic Nurse

Are you interested in helping people? Most folks who work in medicine share a core desire to help others. If that is you too, then perhaps cosmetic nursing might be the career for you. Cosmetic nurses work together with a medical team to provide a range of procedures, such as Botox injections, that help patients look and feel better.

Training in nursing takes hard work and an iron commitment and involves a lot of learning; so, being a dedicated hard worker is indispensable. The exact process of becoming an aesthetics nurse boils down to 3 simple steps. Have a look.

nurse injecting botox

Step one: study and get your nursing license

Go to college, take a nursing course (these range from one year certificates to masters-level programs) and take your license examination upon graduation.

All nursing programs at higher learning institutions involve study of biology, physiology, kinesiology, pharmacology, and other subjects relating to the practice of medicine. Every program also includes a practicum component to ensure that future nurses get plenty of first-hand experience in clinic or hospital settings.

You can become an LPN, RN or Nurse Practitioner. A Licensed practical nurse (LPN) focuses on the practical aspects of caring for patients, while an RN does the work most commonly associated with nurses. A Nurse Practitioner is a nurse certified to practice medicine within parameters more tightly defined than a doctor. An LPN can expect to be certified after as little as one year of post-secondary education, a nurse needs to complete a full university degree (3-4 years) and a Nurse Practitioner needs a minimum of a Masters education before being eligible to practice medicine.

You become a nurse upon completion of your examination, but that doesn’t mean your learning comes to an end. Education is not a product, it is a process and one that continues throughout your life and career. It’s incumbent on all professionals to stay current in their field. As research and discovery drive medicine into the future, you need to take the time to read up on all aspects of new knowledge that might benefit your patients.

Step two: specialize

One educational option in the cycle of continual learning in nursing is to focus on one area of expertise. This focus in one’s education and practice is called specialization.

The journey to specializing in aesthetic medicine can begin in college, where you can seek out a practicum placement at a clinic providing aesthetic procedures like, for example, Botox or liposuction. Most often, new nurses interested in specializing in cosmetic practice will look for a clinic providing such services. Though you can get started working at a place that provides aesthetic procedures when just out of school, you’ll more than likely need to start off somewhere else before you have the requisite experience most clinics will require from applicants.

Step three: get certified

Nurses do not necessarily require certification from an organization like the Plastic Surgical Nursing Certification Board or the Center for Nursing Education and Testing, among others. However, additional certifications do often provide a career boost as well as additional education in specific cosmetic and plastic surgical procedures.

Dentox’s own Botox Training Course, for example, is taught by a world-renowned aesthetic medical professional in Dr. Howard Katz. Not only do you receive certification in a variety of injectables through our courses, but you receive the best available training from the best people in the field.

Nurses at the end of a long educational journey who are looking to cap off this leg of their career cannot go wrong with professional certifications in the exciting and growing field of medical aesthetics.

Dentox’s Return on Investment

dentox training

If you’re a medical or dental professional, the financial math of the Dentox injectables courses is very simple. Your return on investment (ROI) is not only simple to calculate, but you’ll see it more quickly than any other investment you can make today.

The live, in-person group Dentox injectables training course takes place in one day. The one day in Los Angeles, New York, or Houston provides you with unequaled training in Botox, fillers and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) provided by the expert in the field, Dr. Howard Katz. On top of his world-class technical skills, Dr. Katz brings complete and accessible knowledge relating to the marketing and business side of the treatments.

Equipped with your valuable new skill set, and a vile of product, you can begin to administer treatments to patients immediately. This turn over means you see your ROI, fast.

The cost of the one-day live in-person training is $2500 and a vile of product is usually priced around 600 or less. For a total investment of $3100, you’ll see your new training pay for itself after as little as one treatment.

A few years back, when the market wasn’t as strong as it is now, the profit from each vial of product was 1000$. It takes around 5 minutes to inject 100 units at the appropriate sites. Let’s be conservative; If you use just one vial per month over a 20-year career the math works out to 240 months X $1000 = $240,000. That’s the absolute minimum return on your original investment.

This is just one area of growth. Though there is value in pursuing many different courses of study and adding to the breadth of your medical knowledge, this one area will account for the majority of your newly generated income.

Also worth mentioning is the liability component. Certified Botox and filler procedures are incredibly safe. Implant providers are not only looking at a longer wait to see a return on investment (after purchasing machinery and training), but also need to worry about the associated complications. Don’t lightly make the decision to study the implants option. It’s a valuable skill, but adds to your psychological workload by adding the worry about the potential for pathologies involved in placement of implants.

The ROI with Botox, filler and PRP training is beyond anything else available to medical professional today. The process is quite elegant in its simplicity and universal benefits.

Choosing Your Next Growth Opportunity

The marks of a competent medical professional are her up to date knowledge and her willingness always to learn. Aside from keeping up with the newest research, many doctors demonstrate their growth mindsets by regularly seeking out additional qualifications. There are a variety of training courses available to doctors in the US and abroad. So, how does one choose the next step for their career?

dentox class

Considerations

For those interested in pursuing the next best growth opportunities, here are a few things you might consider.

First, consider your priorities and the needs and desires of your patients. Do they align? And, would gaining certain knowledge and skill sets benefit them?

One thing to consider is on what medical services are your patients spending their discretionary money. For example, are many of them seeking out aesthetic treatments elsewhere, that you could just as easily provide at your location? If so, you may find a nexus between the needs of your patients and a potential area for growing your practice.

Facial aesthetics

Within your current client base, you only need a small cohort of patients to give you a feel for what learning is of most benefit. If a subset of patients expresses an interest in or are already pursuing, Botox, dermal filler or PRP treatments elsewhere, then that service would be much more conveniently provided by you.

Return on investment

As a business proposition, it is very logical. Aside from the convenience of it, your patients’ regularly scheduled visits and communications with your office are an ideal medium by which to inform them of the aesthetic treatments you also provide.

If the need exists in the community you service, the cost / benefit analysis is a simple matter of looking at the cost of the training; usually in the range of $700 to $2500. The upper-end figure gets you live, in-person training in all relevant injectables in one day and online courses start at $700. Comparing the cost of the training to a fair market fee for treatments reveals how lucrative this type of growth can be.

Learning with Dentox

The Dentox training courses are considered the premiere continuing education option because they provide an all-in-one course taught by a respected leader in the field. Dr. Katz has over 30 years of experience working in medical aesthetics. He’s travelled the world to speak as an authority on facial aesthetics, and he’s the originator of many patents (and his name appears on many others).

The feedback for the courses received at the Dentox homepage and here on the blog is consistently positive. Participants highlight the extent of Dr. Katz’s expert knowledge, and practical teaching style (he’s a “guide on the side” and not a boring “sage on the stage”, one nurse reported). The praise for the skills in Botox, fillers and especially PRP are unanimous.

If you determine, in consultation with your patients (and your pocketbook) that the next step in your professional learning might involve aesthetic treatments, consider learning with the best at Dentox. Our courses are not run by salespeople looking to sell you equipment, we’re lifelong learners, and we invite you to come learn with us.

All About Botox

botox vialEver-growing demand for facial aesthetic treatments has precipitated the continual growth of the industry and the variety of available Botox preparations for rejuvenating healthy skin. Of the many Botox preparations on the market today, Allergan Botox is a popular option.

There are a few things medical professionals must be familiar with before being licensed to administer Allergan Botox. Here’s what you need to know.

Aesthetics and facial anatomy

There are 43 distinct muscles in the human face. The small size of these muscles, plus the blood vessels and nerves woven through, make the face a very complex anatomical structure. Thus, undertaking any procedures with Botox requires a solid understanding of the intricacy of facial anatomy.

Contraindications and risks / benefits

Like all medical treatments, procedures with Allergan can carry certain risks. Foremost among risk factors are allergies to botulinum toxin or related products; if a patient reports such an allergy, Allergan Botox is not for them. There are also some muscle and nerve conditions which preclude the effective and safe injection of Botox. Though patients who report problems with breathing can receive Botox treatments, any issue with respiration requires that patients be monitored for a longer period after a procedure.

Any good training course, like the ones on offer at Dentox, will go over contraindications in detail. Always ensure that patients are provided the opportunity to report any and all medical conditions as well as medications currently in use. Of particular importance, of course, is any history of surgery on the face; in which case, precautions and additional monitoring are prudent.

Allergan is safe to use, but training courses will go over all confirmed (but rare) risks such as: issues with bladder control, problems swallowing, breathing and talking and generalized muscle weakness and vision distortions caused by the over-spreading of the Botox. Procedures involving the eye muscles can also cause bleeding behind the eye and have negative effects on the cornea.

The identification and management of these potential and severe problems needs to be covered in-depth in any training course. The Dentox courses are good because they don’t only remind participants of the more commonly expected side-effects such as redness or swelling at injection sites.

Other Uses for Allergan Botox

Allergan can be used to treat other conditions, such as: (1) muscle spasms (especially in the neck and hands), (2) Blepharospasm – uncontrolled blinking, (3) Urinary incontinence, (4) Hyperhidrosis, (5) Strabismus – lack of coordination of the eye muscles, and (6) Chronic migraines.

A good training program will be led by a professional with current knowledge of effective applications of Botox. New uses of the product are discovered regularly through medical research, and each use necessitates a good understanding of the associated anatomy.

Legal

Always inform yourself of the regulations and guidelines for Botox injections in your state. You need to know the necessary conditions for specific procedures, as well as who may legally administer Botox. These rules vary by state.

The potential uses of Allergan are relatively broad (compared to other Botox products) and will require that medical professionals have an especially comprehensive knowledge of their state’s associated regulations.

The Synergy of Learning in Dentox’s Training Courses

The term synergy is ubiquitous in the business world. The term can be misused and is definitely overused. Its overuse is due, however, to its validity as a concept in learning and business. Because the learning at Dentox courses is larger than the sum of its parts, it’s truly a synergistic experience for participants.

Feedback

The feedback on our online courses, such as the Botox aesthetics courses, reveals something quite remarkable. Participants frequently comment positively on not just the content of the training course, but the interactions between participants and the course leader, Dr. Howard Katz.

Alongside comments lauding the elegantly demonstrated professional skills are remarks such as, “made a ton of connections yesterday, and following up so far has been both beneficial and pleasant! Great experience! Things are looking good.”

This type of feedback is amazing to read for any organization that intends to provide premium training for professionals. It means the course is worth even more than the sum of its quality subject matter. The course sets itself apart from its competitors.

What exactly sets it apart?

Dr. Howard Katz wrote the book on Botox. There is simply no one better equipped to educate medical professionals on the subject of Botox, fillers and especially PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatments. He has been practising medical aesthetics for 35 years and educating groups across the globe.

Dr. Katz has led groups in Germany, Holland, Spain, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and has worked extensively in North America at prestigious institutions like NYU and NSU. He has collaborated with some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies like Allegan and Prollenium, is involved with the Facial Pain Association and is the president of the International Association of Dentofacial Aesthetics (IADA).

Dr. Katz also holds five medical patents and is named on the patents for all injectable botulinum toxins used today.

It’s simple; he is the authority on the subject matter.

The feedback we receive reveals that Dr. Katz’s depth of knowledge and professional experience is not only of benefit in the explicit teaching of the course content. Many remark on the value of his asides. His offhand comments and anecdotes about the business of Botox are another unique feature adding to the synergistic experience of our courses.

Continuing education

The techniques we teach are proven to accelerate the prosperity of medical practices. These modern techniques are also taught with a perfect balance of lecture and hands-on practice. But, beyond the excellence in teaching, the learning continues long after the course has ended.

Participants can expect to receive Dr. Katz’s support (via email) after the course has been completed. Dr. Katz provides support usually within 24 hours of receiving questions about specific problems that come up in practice. 

All online courses are recorded so that participants can return to review any section of the session. These recordings are available anytime online.

It’s these components of the courses we provide that set them apart and make them greater than the sum of their parts.

The Top 3 Reasons to Take the Dentox Injectables Course in Houston

The Dentox injectables training course will be in Houston February 24th at the Four Points By Sheraton Houston Intercontinental Airport. The session begins at 8:00 am and wraps up at 5:30 pm. This course is intense, with extensive learning (sometimes taught over days in other courses) in one powerful day.

botox training in houston

 

1. The learning is experiential

On our website, you’ll find that among the many perks of participating in this training, you are encouraged to bring one staff member to participate for free. Your staff will perform two functions vital to the programming. (1) They will participate, thereby building capacity at your operation, but they are also there to (2) assist in demonstrating the procedures (where a treatment is deemed necessary it can be done on the spot).

We believe that the practical (experiential) component of the program is essential. Thus, we have put together a workshop that honours this philosophy. There will be a lot of hands-on learning in the afternoon portion of the course.

2. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is a treatment that involves utilizing the patient’s own blood to provide an injectable that fills lines and naturally increases the speed of healing.

This treatment is what makes our training courses unique. No other program will offer PRP therapy training alongside Botox and Filler education. Our model is packed with valuable knowledge and skills that you can employ in growing your business and increasing its profitability.

PRP is effective, but still novel. You might be the first provider in your area to offer the treatment!

3. Marketing and bonus

There are two strands running continuously during this training. First, there is the training in aesthetic medical knowledge (delivered by an expert in Dr. Howard Katz); and, second is the marketing side of things.

Dr. Katz is equally an expert in the marketing and education relating to medical aesthetic therapies. While providing the training, he offers insights in how best to explain these treatments, ideas, and processes to patients. Even more importantly, he emphasizes key features of successful marketing in this area.

At Dentox, we feel we’ve put together the whole package in this training. Aside from a trailblazing medical aesthetician with 35+ experience in his field offering all that experience and expertise has taught him, the course also includes:

  • Certification
  • Free access to online refresher courses
  • Participants are added to Dentox online directory of certified practitioners.

We could go on and on. The best advice myself and my team can give you is: sign up for this training, and learn for yourself why the course’s reputation precedes it as a purveyor of genuinely revenue-generating skills. We also encourage you to read more at the Dentox web page for the Houston training course, or on this blog.

Best wishes in this new year, and see you in Houston!

The Dentox Injectables Course is Coming to Houston – Here’s everything you need to know

Note: Skip to the end of this posting to read about the when and where of this important opportunity.

Attention, professionals in the field of medical aesthetics! This is an announcement to promote the Dentox injectables course taking place this February in Houston, TX. We want briefly to tell you about what makes this course a unique educational opportunity for all professionals in the field of medical aesthetics.

Learning about PRP

As you may already know, platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP, is an innovative and increasingly popular therapy. Not only is it a natural way effectively to fill lines, but it’s also a method by which you can assist patients recovering from procedures to heal more quickly.

As described on the Dentox website, PRP is a process that transforms the patient’s own blood into an injection that fills lines, speeds healing and even regenerates bone. Its popularity is not just due to its novelty and its remarkable effects on the body, but also it satisfies a need in many patients that aesthetic services be provided using natural tools and processes.

Because PRP therapy is relatively new, completing this course can make you one of only a few providers in your area offering the service.

PRP training is only one part of this course!

 

Hands-on training

The schedule for the learning in this course is as follows (from the course’s Houston webpage):

Saturday, February 24

8:00am – 11:00am      Botox Training

11:00am – 1:00pm      Live Patients & Mannequins

1:30pm – 3:30pm        Fillers Training & DentoX LIFT

3:30pm – 5:30pm        Hands On & Platelet Rich Plasma

For each section there is a directed seminar, and then a practical (hands on) component to wrap up the day. Dr. Howard Katz, the facilitator and inventor of PRP therapy, guides learners through each part.

In our training course, we know that everyone learns differently, thus we differentiate instruction to provide a powerful experience. Every aspect of the business of offering these services is explored; this means that the course also provides proven strategies for marketing and educating potential patients about Botox, PRP and other filler-related procedures.

When and where?

Course date: Saturday, February 24th

Course time: 8:00 am – 5:30 pm

Course location: Four Points By Sheraton Houston Intercontinental Airport

We recommend you show up early to connect with your peers in the field. The learning need not be constrained by the hours of operation; in fact, we think learning is a lifelong process. Stick around and chat for as long as the venue operators let you, and make connections for long-term collaboration and discussion.

We look forward to congratulating you, Houston, as you open the door to the profitable opportunities we have on offer.

See you in February!
