The aesthetics industry is expanding every year, and the need for cosmetic nurses with expertise and empathy is growing with it (The Aesthetic Society, 2019). Are you a qualified nurse with a passion for aesthetics? Completing a highly regarded, formal cosmetic injectables training course is an important step in your journey to becoming a practicing cosmetic nurse.
In this article, we run through some of the essentials of being an exceptional cosmetic nurse and discuss how the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science AACDS’s 52852WA Diploma of Cosmetic Nursing and Injectables is an industry-leading training course for qualified nurses looking to gain new skills in the field of cosmetic nursing.
What makes a great cosmetic injector?
Being a great cosmetic nurse isn’t about perfecting one skill only. Beauty is a form of art. The best cosmetic injectors work with absolute precision and are able to assess facial features based on specific anthropometrical measurements and symmetry. They are also up to date with aesthetics developments across a broad field of aesthetics, i.e., not only cosmetic injectables. You’ll also need to be able to create a professional, supportive environment for your patients and manage your marketing campaigns.
Importantly, you need to have the expert clinical training to provide safe and effective cosmetic treatments. The AACDS offers nationally accredited training in injectable procedures (such as wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers), dermal therapies (such as laser, light and energy-based procedures) and cosmeceutical prescription so that you can achieve the best aesthetic outcomes for your patients.
Why take a cosmetic injectables training course?
Nurses are some of the hardest working professionals in the medical industry. As you may have experienced, nurses working in the public sector often work long hours in some challenging environments. Cosmetic nursing, which is offered through private clinics, can be an empowering pathway towards more flexible hours and greater financial freedom. Many nurses who make the move to the aesthetics industry experience a significant increase in income and a more rewarding work-life balance. If you’re thinking about making the transition, it’s important to think about how you can acquire the clinical and professional expertise to practice as a cosmetic nurse.
