Botox and Filler Courses for Nurses

At Cosmetic Courses, we have trained many nurses and midwives in Botox® and Dermal Filler wanting to create the lifestyle they have always dreamed of. In fact, registered nurses currently account for over 50% of the delegates we see on our Botox and Dermal Filler training. This is a result of the high degree of transferable skills nurses hold that can be used in medical aesthetics.

Our award-winning CPD Certified Foundation level Botox and Filler Training Course is a great place for nurses to start their career in aesthetics. This one-day course is designed as an introduction to the basic Botox and filler treatments and is a perfect choice for nurses who want to learn more about the aesthetics industry and gain practice in these treatments.

Once you have your insurance in place, you can then begin to practice these treatments on your own clients.

Following on from the Foundation Botox and Filler training course, many nurses have continued to attend our Botox and Filler Bespoke Training Course or our Introduction to Lip Filler Course in order to further their knowledge, confidence and practice techniques, such as enhancing and defining vermillion border and bolus for volume. Our introduction to lip fillers training courses have been created to assist those who feel they need a little more practice in this area of dermal fillers, providing a thorough understanding of dermal fillers and lip injections.

Our team of dedicated trainers are passionate in providing the highest quality training for our delegates.

Can nurses do Botox injections?

All qualified nurses with a current registration with the NMC, or equivalent if you are an overseas nurse, are able to attend our Botox courses. If you are a non-prescribing nurse, you can still train in and perform Botox procedures. In fact, it is very common for medical professional without a prescribing qualification to train in Botox and Filler and go on to provide aesthetic treatments. This is evidenced by the many non-prescribing nurses we have trained who have set up highly successful and profitable aesthetic clinics over the past 18 years.

As a result of the transferable skills that nurses hold, we have found that nurses are very well suited to aesthetic training. Nurses are very experienced at drawing up and administering injections, as well as following hygiene protocols. These are all extremely relevant skills when dealing with cosmetic injectables. As Botox is a prescription only medicine (POM), however, as a non-prescribing nurse, you will need to look into a number of options available in regard to prescribing the Botox. Please find below the three different options available to you as a non-prescribing nurse:

Option 1 – work with a prescriber

As a non-prescribing nurse, you will need to work alongside a medical professional, such as a doctor dentist or nurse prescriber, who can do a face to face consultation with your patients to prescribe the Botox prior to you administering the treatment. This can be arranged with a colleague or friend. Alternatively, there are prescribing companies who provide prescribing services across the country. This will involve sending a prescriber to your clinic who will see your patients for a consultation and prescribe the Botox on your behalf.

Option 2 – become a prescriber

In the longer term, it is best practice to become a nurse prescriber if you are offering Botox treatments on a regular basis to your clients. To do this, you will need to take the Non-Medical prescribing (V300) course, which is a course provided by many 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 you will need to complete your Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler training course, begin to practise these treatments and then apply for the V300 course. Cosmetic Courses can also support you with your mentoring throughout your V300 training.

The potential income you can receive as an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner far outweighs what you can receive as a Bank Nurse for the NHS. As detailed below, the potential profit 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 Botox treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and a Dermal Filler treatment can take only 30-45 minutes. Training in Botox and other aesthetic treatments, therefore, can allow you to either supplement your supplement your income from nursing, if you want to stay in the profession, or to pursue a much more lucrative aesthetic career.

A standard 3 area female Botox treatment

  • 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 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

Previous aesthetic nurses and midwives we have trained have highlighted the major benefits of moving from working in the NHS towards the non-surgical aesthetics industry. These benefits include more sociable hours, a far higher potential earning than in the NHS, increased job satisfaction and less regulations than in the NHS. Many nurses we have trained have also discussed how their Botox training has been a great addition to their already broad CV of clinical skills. The cosmetic industry is continuously evolving and growing, with newer minimally invasive procedures being discovered and more awareness of non-surgical treatment becoming more widespread. The demand for aesthetic treatments is also continuously increasing, with 90% of all cosmetic treatments in the UK now being non-surgical. This makes now a great time to begin investing in these acquired skills with our expert team and beginning your career as an aesthetic nurse.

How long after Botox can I get fillers?

Clients should wait at least two weeks after having Botox treatments before getting fillers. On occasion, Botox and Filler may be injected at the same time, however, this depends on what area of the face is being injected. Botox will typically last for 3-4 months whilst filler lasts up to 12-18 months.

What kind of nurse do you have to be to inject Botox?

At Cosmetic Courses, we train surgeons, doctors, dentists and aesthetic nurses in a variety of treatments including Botox and dermal filler to skin rejuvenation including chemical ski peel, microneedling and microdermabrasion. Any registered nurse can inject Botox and as long as you have a current registration with a governing body ensuring you are able to attend our aesthetic training course. Training can be completed in one day and will qualify you to practice both Botox and Dermal Fillers on your own patients. Bear in mind, however, that Botox is a prescription-only medicine, so unless you’re a Nurse Prescriber, you’ll always need to work with someone else who can prescribe it.

At Cosmetic Courses, we also offer a number of training courses to nurses and Beauty Therapists NVQ Level 3 looking to advance their skills into medical skin rejuvenation treatments, such as chemical peel and microneedling. These training courses provide delegates with the knowledge and practice to move from working as a beauty therapy to an advanced aesthetic practitioner who will stand out in a highly competitive market.

Cosmetic Courses also offers a number of training options for overseas nurses who hold an equivalent qualification to a registered NMC. First, we offer a bespoke course package which includes your chosen courses over the space of a couple of days or weeks (depending on your time constraints). We also have a wide range of online learning options through our Online Academy which includes presentations, videos form industry experts, live demonstrations, business support and assessments to test your knowledge. On successful completion of the online training modules you receive a certificate of completion. If you are looking for remote learning option, this may be the perfect option for you. Please note, we would only be able to certify you to practise in the country that you are registered in.
