Only board-certified medical professionals, registered nurses, or physician assistants can administer BOTOX. To avoid the risks of a poor outcome, ensure your injections are performed by a qualified, certified professional. Training courses and certification in BOTOX administration is an added step for providers who are committed to delivering a superior outcome – like our team at Avalon Laser.
Most registered nurses have completed a minimum of four years at accredited universities to obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing. To become an RN, they must pass the National Council Licensure Examination, Registered Nurse (NCLEX)after earning their degree. They must also fulfill any additional requirements mandated by the state.
Some nursing programs offer experience in cosmetic procedures or areas relevant to aesthetic nursing. Knowledge administering BOTOX can be gained by working with a licensed medical doctor or providing injection services at a medical spa. At Avalon Laser, our RNs have completed additional training in BOTOX, dermal fillers, and laser treatments.
It is essential that your BOTOX injections are under the supervision of a certified medical professional. Dr. Tirgari, our founder, is certified in aesthetic medicine and is a licensed physician. His experience in the field of aesthetics is above and beyond many practitioners.
