AACM’s Certified Botox and Filler Courses


Although called the beginner course, this course dives deeper than a basic understanding of Botox and filler injections. It will help equip them to create cosmetic patient plans and advise patients on the best treatments for them. In this course, NPs will learn:

  • Learn the standard facial muscles and anatomy that are used when injecting neurotoxins and dermal fillers.
  • Learn how dermal fillers and neurotoxins help delay and reverse signs of aging.
  • Understand the various neurotoxin options and the structural/functional differences between them.
  • Understand the various dermal fillers and the structural/functional differences between them.
  • Learn the correct injection placements for neurotoxins and dermal fillers for each area of the face.
  • Understand the best injection points and how to mark the face for standard cosmetic injections through studies and practice.
  • Understand the best way to prepare neurotoxins
  • Learn the top techniques and practices for patient pain management and preparation.
  • Participate in hands-on learning with 90 units of Dysport or 30 units of Botox. NPs can purchase more units during training at a discounted price.
