Medical Spa/Botox

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or history being part of or owning a medical spa, or just doing Botox injections. Specifically I’d like to know what courses we as PAs need to do injections, what extra certifications or licenses, and any other pertinent info to get started. Thanks!

No additional certifications or licenses are required - your PA license is sufficient.

The best way to become skilled in aesthetic medicine is to work at a derm or plastics practice that provides those services and learn from the other providers you work with. Additionally, such practices can also have their local Allergan, Galderma & other reps set up trainings for you. Once you are comfortable with the anatomy and on-label treatments, you can then seek out additional private trainings with other aesthetic medicine providers you would like to learn from.
