"Injecting Botox and dermal fillers is as much of an art as it is a medical procedure. Nurse Practioner's, Physician Assistants, and Registered Nurses are being called upon more and more frequently to perform procedures of injectables previously done only by physicians. This course will teach participants the basics of the knowledge and skills necessary to become a competent injector in the growing field of cosmetic medicine".
