Have you ever thought of making your own business? The business that involves aesthetic and Botox services? If you are, you might be thinking it’s a waste of money. It can also be hard for you to do. However, it isn’t as bad as you think it will be. You can actually make a great business out of doing aesthetic procedures or Botox injections. Here are some tips that will help you get started.


You will need certification, AANP CE credits, and proper training for you to be able to inject Botox into your patients. You will need proper Botox training for nurse practitioners and your prescribing rights. It strongly recommends that your Botox training for nurse practitioners includes extensive hands-on and practical training as well as education in the aesthetics industry’s best practices from proven experts on skin and dermatology. Please note, the AANP will also accept AAFP CME credits in place of CE credits.

Once you’ve completed the proper Botox training for nurse practitioners, make sure your practice is compliant with your state’s laws. Usually, if you have prescribing rights, you’ll be able administer Botox yourself. If not, you have to hire an on-site physician to act as medical director when you administer the procedure.


Before you can start, you need to prepare the infrastructure and the experience, before you can legally and safely begin. Here are some ways to start your preparations:

* Register as self-employed
* Get good cosmetic insurance
* Stock up on equipment and supplies
* Develop a robust consenting system

Keep in mind most cosmetic and aesthetic procedures aren’t going to be covered by a patient’s insurance. When you use Botox for medicinal purposes, like to help treat a patient’s migraines, you might be able to bill the patient’s insurance for the procedure. Check with the insurers you accept to find out exactly how they will and will not cover Botox injections.

You should also consult with your own insurance to make sure that any Botox-related procedures you administer are covered with your medical malpractice policy.

* Plan for problems
* Shadow and practice in a real clinical setting

It is so that you can get more experience, which will be useful for your own business and skill. Once you have done those steps, be patient. Taking your time in preparing your business and getting it organized is an effective way to making your business a great one.


The simple idea fuelling successful aesthetics practice is this: build a strong relationship with your clients and they will keep coming back, often every 3-4 months, and so will their friends. Word-of-mouth is the reliable way to establish a successful practice. The quality of your training will directly translate into the number of referrals you get from your first patients. Referrals bring with them loyal patients. With a strong foundation of trust, the increasing popularity of your aesthetic procedures can continue over the long term

If you have had patients for your previous medical practices, give out flyers and brochures to let them know that you are starting aesthetic medical services. Using the internet or social media is a need for businesses since it is the technology age now. Many people get their information from the internet and social media. It is also to know what your clients want.

Keep Learning

Once you have a solid foundation in the core injection techniques, it is advisable to advancing and diversifying your skills. Investing in training is a decision you won’t regret. So, in order to succeed, you need much dedication to what you do. Attend conferences, workshops, and augment your artistic and technical precision at every opportunity.

Seek Support

Sharing expertise is invaluable for independent practitioners. If you don’t already have acquaintances working in aesthetics, consider how you might find some. Although not mandatory, you may consider joining a body such as BCAM, which provides a network of support and advice from fellow aesthetic practitioners.

BCAM (for doctors), BACN (for nurses) and other voluntary registers also allow prospective patients to find registered medical professionals who have provided evidence of their insurance and training. As such they can lend additional visibility to your practice.

Listen to your patients

Listening to your patients comments are crucial. Since they can show signs of worry or concern which can only be seen if you are open to what they have to say. Always have sufficient time for a thorough patient consultation.

Following up on your patients post-treatment is also an excellent way to learn, improve your aesthetic judgement, and strengthen your relationship with each patient. By covering the above points your independent practice has the potential to be something great – both for you and for your patients.


These are just a few tips on how you can start your own business of medical aesthetic services. One thing is that you need to do some Botox training just so you would have enough experience in this medical procedure.
