Aesthetic treatments have advanced considerably over the last few decades. These treatments might have previously been seen as rarities or as a last resort, but now they are an incredibly commonplace way for men and women to improve their physical appearance. Treatments such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers provide a simple, non-surgical option for those who wish to reverse the signs of aging, or prevent aging from emerging in the first place.
As the field of aesthetics grows in popularity, it presents unique opportunities for skilled providers. If you have ever considered a career as an aesthetic specialist, you may benefit from aesthetic training courses, including the classes offered by The Aesthetic Immersion.
Medical Aesthetics 101
The Aesthetic Immersion focuses on medical aesthetics, which is a very broad field, with the basic goal of helping patients look and feel as confident as possible. More precisely, medical aesthetics is devoted to altering a patient’s cosmetic appearance without resorting to any kind of surgical intervention.
For example, those who work in medical aesthetics may help their patients minimize the visibility of scars, conceal wrinkles, or remove unwanted hairs.
Professionals who work in medical aesthetics can create truly life-changing results for their patients, allowing them to gain a more youthful appearance and a greater sense of self-confidence. It is important to be well-trained in anatomy, patient care, and the latest medical aesthetic treatments to provide these results. That is where courses from The Aesthetic Immersion become invaluable.
Who Should Seek Training in Medical Aesthetics?
Our courses are primarily for professionals who have some formal training and experience in the medical field, including doctors, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Those professionals, who already have a medical background and thus know the basics of facial anatomy and patient care, have a solid foundation on which to build their skill sets. Training courses in medical aesthetics start with that foundation but provide greater depth and detail regarding specific treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers. The goal is for providers to feel much more confident in their ability to treat patients, and deliver optimal results as well as total safety.
Who We Train
Some specific examples of who we train include:
- Dentists – In many states, a dental license is sufficient for administering Botox and/or dermal fillers, particularly around the mouth. With the right training, dentists can expand their practice and supply their patients with a broader range of cosmetic solutions.
- Nurses – Many nurses decide to go into medical aesthetics because it can be a break from the most stressful or frantic nature of a hospital or medical practice. Aesthetic training allows nurses to seek new opportunities at medspas, plastic surgery practices, etc.
- Nurse practitioners and physician assistants – Nurse practitioners and physician assistants. These professionals can expand their treatment options and seek new areas of practice, so long as they work under the guidance of a physician.
Why Seek Training in Medical Aesthetics?
There are numerous benefits to getting trained in medical aesthetics, including:
- Finding a new place to work. By developing skills in medical aesthetics, healthcare professionals can look for new opportunities in fun, fast-paced work environments, including medspas and dermatology practices.
- Keeping up with patient demand. Each year, more and more patients seek cosmetic interventions, such as dermal fillers or body contouring. Aesthetic training can help you keep up with this demand, allowing you to expand your career and explore new sources of income.
- Providing direct patient care. One of the most rewarding aspects of medical aesthetics is that it enables providers to interact with their patients directly, listen to their goals and aspirations, and offer treatment options that deliver immediate results. The experience can be deeply satisfying for providers and patients alike.
- Expanding an existing practice. Training in medical aesthetics does not mean you have to completely change careers. Many dentists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants seek training to expand the services they offer to their current patient base, and develop a more robust and comprehensive practice.
- Maintaining patient safety. When misapplied (or when performed DIY), aesthetic treatments can potentially be quite dangerous. With the right training, you can ensure that you have the skills necessary to keep patients completely safe throughout their treatment.
