How do you become an aesthetic nurse?

At Cosmetic Courses, we have trained many nurses and midwives in Botox and Dermal Filler wanting to start a career in aesthetics. In fact, registered nurses currently account for over 50% of the delegates we see on our Botox and Filler training. This is a result of the high degree of transferable skills nurses hold that can be used in medical aesthetics. Our aesthetics courses for nurses are the perfect choice if you want to expand your knowledge on Botox® and Dermal Filler and become an aesthetic nurse.

Our award-winning CPD certified, Foundation level Botox and Dermal Filler Training Course provides an introduction to the aesthetics industry and is perfect for individuals interested in aesthetic nursing. This one-day aesthetic course provides education in the form of a group interactive lecture led by one of our expert trainers in the morning. This will be followed by an afternoon of hands-on training sessions, allowing participants to begin performing non-surgical Botox and Dermal Fillers procedures immediately. These treatments will include: upper face 3 areas Botox, nose to mouth lines, marionette lines and corners of the mouth. On successful completion of our Foundation Botox Training Course, you will receive a certificate of attendance which is recognised by all major insurance companies. Once you have your insurance in place, you can then begin to practise these treatments on your own clients.

Many nurses we have trained at Cosmetic Courses have also expressed the importance of attending our Botox and Filler Bespoke Training Course or our Introduction to Lip Filler Training Course following the Foundation Training Course. These fillers training courses have been created to assist those who feel they need a little more practice in the more advanced areas of dermal fillers. This will further your knowledge, confidence and practice techniques on a number of procedures such as: enhancing and defining vermillion border and bolus for volume. Previous aesthetic nurses have explained how the aesthetic world can be daunting at first, our fillers training courses, therefore, focus on ensuring that those of you who complete our training programme are left feeling confident in their practice.

Cosmetic Courses also offers a Botox and Dermal Filler Advanced Training Course that is designed for medical professionals who have completed and are confident with basic Botox and Dermal Filler techniques and are looking for more practise and to build their skill set to include more advanced treatments. This course will teach you how to use advanced techniques to create facial rejuvenation rather than simply eradicating lines and wrinkles by adding mid-face volume, jaw and cheek sculpting or raising the eyebrow. By attending this course, you will gain an understanding and practice of the following treatments: brow lift, mentalis treatments, lower face Botox, Nefertiti lift/platysmal bands, treatment of hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating), lip augmentation and enhancement, cheek augmentation.

How do I become an overseas aesthetic nurse?

Cosmetic Courses also offers a number of training options for overseas medical professionals who hold an equivalent qualification to a registered NMC, GDC or GMC. Please note however, we would only be able to certify you to practise in the country you are registered in. We appreciate you will be travelling a long way to receive your aesthetic training, so we try and make sure every step of your Botox training is hassle-free. We offer a bespoke botox training package which includes your chosen courses over the space of a couple of days or weeks (depending on time constraints).

On successful completion of these online training modules, you will receive a certificate of completion. If you are looking for remote learning option, this may be the perfect option for you.

What qualifications do you need for aesthetics?

At Cosmetic Courses, we have trained many surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses in a variety of aesthetic treatments who have gone on to set up highly successful and profitable aesthetics clinics. All qualified nurses with a current registration with the NMC, or equivalent if you are an overseas nurse, are able to attend our Botox and Dermal Filler courses. Non-prescribing nurses are able to train in and perform Botox procedures, however, it is important to bear in mind that Botulinum Toxin A (Botox) is a prescription only medicine (POM). As a non-prescribing nurse, therefore, you will need to look into a number of options available in regard to prescribing the Botox. Please see below the three different options available to you as a non-prescribing nurse:

Option 1 – work with a prescriber

Since non-prescribing nurses are unable to prescribe their own Botox, they often work alongside a medical profession, such as a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber, who will do a face to face consultations with the patients to prescribe the Botox prior to the non-prescribing nurse administering the treatment. There are also a number of prescribing companies who provide prescribing services across the country. This will involve paying a prescriber to see patients for a consultation and prescribe the Botox on the non-prescribing nurses behalf.

Option 2 – become a prescriber

In the longer term, many non-prescribing nurses have found it best practise to become a nurse prescriber if they are offering Botox treatments on a regular basis. This will involve taking a Non-Medical Prescribing Course (V300). This course is offered by numerous universities across the UK and takes approximately 6 months to complete. Due to the popularity of these courses, many universities are stipulating a minimum of 1 year practice in the aesthetic field before being able to apply for the V300 course. This means non-prescribing aesthetic nurses will need to complete their Foundation Botox training course, begin to practise these treatments and then apply for the V300 course. Cosmetic Courses offers support with mentoring throughout this V300 training.

Option 3 – train in other treatments

Many non-prescribing nurses also consider various treatments instead of Botox. Dermal fillers, chemical skin peels, PRP and dermarollers are all non-prescription treatments and can be administered without the need of a prescriber. These lucrative skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatments can still offer great results to your patients with the need for Botox.

How much do aesthetic nurses make an hour?

The potential income you can receive as an aesthetic nurse practitioner in the private sector far outweighs what you can receive as a Bank Nurse for the NHS. The potential profits on non-surgical treatments, such as Botox and Dermal Fillers, are considerable, especially when the time taken to perform these treatments is relatively short.

A standard 3 area female Botox Treatment

  • A Botox treatment can take as little as 15 minutes
  • Costs you an average £100
  • Depending on your area and expertise, you could charge around £250-£350
  • A potential 250% profit

A Dermal Filler treatment

  • A Dermal Filler treatment can take only 30-45 minutes
  • A syringe of dermal fillers depending on the grade would cost you between £50 and £130
  • Each syringe could be charged at around £200-£300
  • A potential 500% profit

As detailed above, the earning potential for aesthetic nurses in the private sector are considerable. Training in Botox and other aesthetic treatments can, therefore, allow you to either supplement your income from nursing, if you choose to stay in the profession, or to pursue a much more lucrative career in private aesthetics.
