Botox Certification Training for PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS

Botox Certification Training for NURSE PRACTITIONERS OR NURSES

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™.

Documentation: the physician should self claim credit for appropriate AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ activities and document activity title or description, subject or content area, date(s) of participation and number of credits claimed. Physicians may not claim AMA PRA Category 2 Credit™ for an activity for which the physician has claimed AMA PRA Category 1 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.


For nurses and nurse practitioners, you are eligible for continuing education (CE) credits through our partner.  Botox CE and Dermal Filler CE.

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. Each trainings typically last about 5-6 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?

The cost of Botox® and filler is NOT included in the training price, because we won’t know how many models you will have at the training date. We typically recommend that you buy at least 2 vials of Botox® and 4 filler syringes.
(NOTE: Botox® comes in a multiple use vial that has 100 units of Botox® for $600. Each area of injection will use around 20 units of Botox®. One vial of Botox® can be used on 5 areas of the face. Fillers come in a one-time use syringe that can only be injected in one patient, which costs around $250. Fillers can be used in more than one area depending on the level of correction. Total recommend purchase = 2 Botox® vials at $600 per vial and 4 Fillers syringes at $250 per syringe)

At most training sessions, models are willing to pay for the cost of the products being injected into them. If you can charge the models a low fee, then this is a way to recoup the cost of the products. Also, another way is to get free products from your drug reps. Allergan has been very difficult about giving out free Botox or Juvederm for new training sessions. But you can still find your local rep and ask. We have found that other companies, like Galderma (which makes Dysport and Restylane) have local drug reps that are much friendlier about giving you free products for your training. Basically, if you know how to be nice to a drug rep, then you’ll probably get some free products for your training since you are setting up a new account.
Here is a list of those companies: (Botox® & Juvederm) Allergan – 800-377-7790 (Restylane, Perlane, and Dysport) Galderma – 1-844-GALDERM

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. 

What If I Want To Train More Than 2 People In The Office?

Each additional person that you want to train above 2 people is an additional $500/day. For example: 

  • Sign up for one day training and you want to train a third person, then it will be $500 additional.
  • Sign up for two days training and you want to train a third person, then it will be $1000 additional.

Can I Open An Aesthetic Practice After Taking This Course?

The laws vary by state. If you are not a physician, then it is best to contact your state licensing bureau to check whether or not you can inject by yourself, with onsite, direct, or indirect supervision by a physician. Many of the state’s laws are vague or incomplete in this area. We are unable to provide legal advice to anyone on their state’s laws.

Where Is The Training?

All of our trainings are held at your medical office or a location in your city. Cosmetic Medical Training used to hold our trainings in hotel conference rooms. We have decided that this is not optimal as it is unsanitary and does not replicate your actual practice experience.

Who Is Able To Take The Hands-On Training?

We only train Physicians (MD/DO), Dentists (DMD), Nurse Practitioners (NP), Physician Assistants (PA), and Nurses (RN). If you do not hold any of these degrees, then it is unlikely that your state will allow you to administer injections on patients. We recommend that you check with your USA/state licensing boards as new laws and regulations are passed each year.

Information about models for the training

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 10am and then schedule each one every 45 minutes. 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:
1 area of Botox®/Dysport® ~ $100
1 syringe of Restylane or Juvederm Filler (lasts ~ 4-6 months) ~ $250.

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:

Botox®: 1 vial = $600 (can treat up to 5 areas).

Restylane or Juvederm: 1 syringe = $250 (can treat only 1 patient).
