Botox and Dermal Filler Training for Nurses

Botox and Dermal Filler Training for Nurses

At Facethetics Training we have helped many nurses in the North West transition from traditional nursing to aesthetic practitioners through our aesthetic training courses.  

Why Should Nurses Train In Aesthetics?

There are many reasons you personally want to make the career change. But here are the top reasons Facethetics have heard:


No matter what nursing career you choose, the pay will be better in aesthetic practice. An Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner can expect to make more than their NHS counterparts with less time investment per hour of work as compared to that seen within a Nursing or Midwifery position which is why it's an excellent option.

Quality of Life

Unlike NHS roles, the cosmetics industry has a much more sustainable work/life balance. Especially as the work hours tend to be much more sociable.

Further Existing Skills

Nurses are very well suited to aesthetic treatments as they are already very well versed in administering injections and how to follow all the appropriate hygiene protocols. Botox and Dermal Filler courses will expand your knowledge and skills.

Career Options

Similarly to the previous point of expanding your skills, with your new skills you will have a much wider scope for career progression and opportunities.


Currently, the NHS has seen many changes, with many sectors becoming privatised. Particularly treatments for excessive sweating and acne scarring, both treatments we offer aesthetic training for here at Facethetic Training.  

Working With A Prescriber

We're aware that prescribing is a key concern for those considering whether or not you should embark on the course in aesthetic medicine training. At Facethetics Training we are able to link you up with a qualified prescriber local to your area as soon as you complete one of our Foundation courses. A doctor, dentist or prescribing nurse can prescribe the botulinum toxin. This medical professional could be someone you already know or we can connect you to a qualified prescriber. Alternatively, you may be a prescriber and would like to join our network of prescribers.

All our trained medical practitioners are excellent at prescribing and work with you to write the proper documentation. They charge a fee between £25-50 per prescription, depending on the experience level of the provider. Contact us today if you would like to join our network of prescribers. Please note: it is the responsibility of the prescriber and non-prescribing practitioner to come to their own agreement regarding fees and/or commission. Facethetics Training Ltd will have no involvement in any communication between the two parties following the initial introduction.
