Discover new career opportunities in the world of medical aesthetics. Become a highly skilled cosmetic injector with APT Injection Training’s Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses. 

The first FDA-approved treatment for cosmetic use, Botox remains one of the most in-demand, non-surgical cosmetic procedures globally since its launch in 2002. In fact, in 2018 alone, over 7.4 million Botox injections were performed in the United States. 

APT Injection Training, one of the leading educational institutions, now offers US-based students the best medical aesthetic programs and industry-recognized certification. Our Botox training course in Los Angeles is open for registered nurses, nurse practitioners, practical nurses, physicians, and other licensed medical professionals who want to expand their professional practices and forge a career as expert Botox and dermal filler injectors.

Our Botox Training Approach

APT Injection Training spearheads some of the industry’s most impressive cosmetic injection training. We are best known for our introductory course, Foundation Toxin and Filler Certificate of Attendance, which students can upgrade to International Certification in Injectable Therapies.

Our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses offer extensive theoretical and practical lessons based on industry-established best practices and the latest innovations in facial rejuvenation using Botox and dermal filler treatment techniques. Aside from our Botox training for nurses, we also have a wide array of intermediate and advanced cosmetic injection programs for dentists and physicians looking to take their practice to the next level with cosmetic injection therapies.

We have produced some of the best cosmetic injection specialists in the US and Canada—a testament to the exceptional quality of our intensive Botox and dermal filler training programs.

Here are other excellent reasons why our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses are a cut above the rest.

1. Intimate Learning Environment with Strict 2:1 Trainee to Trainer Ratio

We ensure students get the best value for their money by maintaining an intimate learning environment with a set limit of only two students for each instructor. It is a tried-and-tested method that is deemed to be most effective in providing aspiring toxin and filler injectors with an immersive learning experience and uninterrupted access to everything they need. 

These include having the instructor’s 100% attention during lectures and practical hands-on training, allowing them to ask questions about everything without hesitation. Due to the intimate nature of each class, students do not have to worry about running out of time or waiting for their turn.  Instead, they are guaranteed multiple hours of dedicated training to practice and perfect their injection techniques until they become confident to do it in a clinical setting.

2. Learn from the Masters of Botox Injections

Our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses are led by our Head of Faculty and APT Founder and Lead Practitioner Patricia Pezzano, RN, BSN, B.Sc (Biol), (NANS). She boasts many years of experience educating aspiring cosmetic injectors and is the driving force behind the successful medical spa in Oakville, APT Medical Aesthetics.  

3. Hands-on Botox Training on Live Models

Like our other cosmetic injection programs, our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses offer at least seven hours of hands-on injection training, complete with expert demonstrations of treatment techniques and actual training on live models.  Each student will be provided with up to eight patients with different skin types and treatment concerns, focusing on the lower face.

Our Additional Training Courses

In addition to our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses, APT Injection Training also has other training centred on facial rejuvenation, such as:

1. Foundation Toxin and Dermal Filler Certificate of Attendance

This is a two-day training course intended for registered medical professionals. It combines critical theoretical university-level pre-course learning, practical demonstration of procedures, and extensive hands-on training on live models. It is a stand-alone course that acts as the minimum credit required to begin practising toxin and dermal filler treatments. It can also be used to credit toward the more intensive, internationally recognized International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies. 

2. International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies

APT Injection Training is the only training centre in North America to offer authentic third-party certification in conjunction with our UK partner, MATA training and OTHM—an internationally recognized awarding body. This means that you can apply the experience you have gained in our courses toward a globally recognized International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies. 

The international certification involves completing extensive, university-level pre-course work (representing 230 UK CME), three days of intensive training, completion of a logbook, and short answer questions that are all independently assessed by OTHM, who then awards the certification. Other courses that “certify” are only to their standards, not by independently developed and evaluated criteria. 

APT Injection Training has been independently assessed, including our processes, training materials, and other related matters, and is certified by a recognized independent organization. It is a valuable endorsement that promotes the level of expertise and quality that you can expect from our Botox courses for Los Angeles nurses.

3. Basic Lower Face Cannula Training–Hyaluronic Acid

Learn an adjunctive way to administer dermal fillers to clients via the cannula technique. This one-day course training will cover similar topics in the Basic Filler Training Course, including pre-course reading material, employing the same 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio with approximately seven to eight live models. Still, the hands-on training will involve the use of cannulas predominately in addition to needles. 

4. Advanced Dermal Filler Training–Hyaluronic Acid & Radiesse

This is the next course after taking the Foundation Basic Filler Injection and the Lower Face Cannula Training programs. It’s a 1-day training course that continues with cannula injections, focuses on more advanced treatment areas, such as the temples and tear troughs, and introduces the use of Radiesse – a longer-lasting filler composed of calcium hydroxyapatite. It includes pre-course reading material, employs the same 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio with approximately 7-8 live models for hands-on injections. This is highly recommended for professionals with prior experience injecting at least 50 patients before taking this course, as the adverse events in the temples and tear troughs can be severe and permanent.

5. Lip Filler Training

A comprehensive one-day hands-on training on live models and lectures, this course covers the latest types of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for lip enhancements. It involves the same comprehensive pre-course material as the other filler courses. This course delves into different lip injection protocols combining both cannula and needle techniques. The focus is on lip analysis and how to employ various techniques to achieve volume, definition, support, and contour but, most importantly, to obtain natural-looking, proportional lips that clients will love.

6. The Laser Module Course

This online training course is expertly written to support your theoretical learning on the safe and effective use of laser and intense light technology for cosmetic treatments, such as hair reduction and skin rejuvenation. Purchasing a laser machine is a significant investment that requires in-depth laser knowledge to make sure you make the correct purchase for your practice and client profile.

This course will help you make the right choice that by educating you on core laser technology. This course will help you understand the individual machine nuances and solutions, as you use them in your business. The objective is to enable practitioners to briefly assess the different laser machines available in the market to help you choose the right tool for your practice. 

7. Dental Filler & Botox Training

It is an intensive one-day training course for dentists seeking to add neurotoxin injection and lip filler services to their current scope of practice. It involves pre-course theoretical material (which covers both neurotoxin and dermal filler) that delves into anatomy, recognizing contraindications and potential risks, and using hyaluronidase for emergency interventions. The hands-on injection portion will include cosmetic toxin injections, TMJ injections, lips, and lower face dermal filler indications. We employ the same customized 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio in all of our APT courses to ensure maximum hands-on injection and confidence when leaving the course.
