Botox and Dermal Filler Training
Other Online Training
Is this a Certified course?
Botox®/Dysport® and Dermal Filler injection is not currently limited to a board specialty in medicine. Any physician may learn and inject Botox®/Dysport® and Dermal Fillers into patients under the scope of their practice. Therefore, there is no “Board Certifying” for this procedure in the USA. You will receive a Certification of Completion that is recognized by the vendors and malpractice insurance companies. Some states have passed legislations regarding the specific types of training. We recommend that you contact your state licensing board to ensure that our training meets your state’s requirements. Mid-level providers should contact their states as there are various laws regarding supervision of this procedure that your state may require of you.
Will I receive a training certificate?
Yes. You will receive a training certificate after you view the online training material that you will be able to download from your computer.
Can I get CME credit for this course?
Yes, you can. According to the AMA, "Participation in activities that have not been certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™" is a AMA PRA Category 2. The course at Cosmetic Medical Training is currently not an AMA PRA Category 1 course.
According to the AMA policy:
Organizations may not certify activities for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ or advertise that an activity qualifies for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™.

Each physician is responsible for claiming and maintaining a record of their AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™.
Each online courses take over an hour to complete. Our hands on courses ranges from 4 to 8 hours long, depending on the location.
How long is the course?
The duration of time spent in your office will vary from training to training. It depends on the desires of the trainee and the amount of patient models that are available. We’ve had trainings that lasted over 8 hours to trainings that were only 4 hours long. We are highly flexible to the needs of the practice while focusing on direct patient contact with hands-on training.
Are there additional cost?
Currently, New York, Los Angeles, Tampa, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm metro areas are the only areas that do not require additional travel expenses. Typically, we have to fly our trainers to your location and spend the night in your city. We require that you pay the additional travel expense to our trainers directly. This typically includes airfare, hotel, car rental and gas. This additional charge varies depending on many factors such as airline ticket costs, distance from the airport, and etc. We cannot give you a quote, but typically the total travel cost is under $500.
Are models provided?
We ask that you use your staff, friends and family to become models for you. In select cities, we have a list of models that we can contact to see if they are able to come to your office. However, we find that most models prefer to stay local and we are unable to rely on them to be your model for your training.
How do I get models?
Ask your staff, friends and family members to be models for your injection. We have been teaching Botox®/Dysport® and Dermal Fillers injection training since 2006. You can reassure your acquaintances that we have not had any MAJOR complications from any of the models. If your training starts at 10am, you'll want to schedule the first model at 11am and then schedule each one every half hour. The first hour of the course will be spent going over all of the course material with the trainer.
What are models charged?
Your office is required to purchase the products (Botox & Juvederm) ahead of the training course. Your office may charge your models a fee to pay for the cost of products used on them or charge nothing. This depends on your desires.
Below is a sample pricing fee to charge your models for the cost of the products used:
What if I want to pay for my models the cost of the products?
Then you should discuss with the trainer how many products that you should purchase before your training. Here are the typical prices with the vendors:
How much product will I have to use during the training?
We typically go through two vials of Botox®/Dysport® and 2-4 syringes of a filler. Restylane and Juvederm are similar hyaluronic acid dermal filler that we typically use.

Each additional person that you want to train above 2 people is an additional $500.
