Interested in becoming trained to be a cosmetic injector? Here are a few details you need to know!

To start, in Utah (and most states) you have to be licensed as a registered nurse (RN), physician’s assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP), physician (MD/DO), or dentist (DDS) in order to be trained as an injector. An RN must work under an NP or MD as their medical director for proper supervisory requirements. Many states require a PA to have an MD as a medical director as well.

A certificate or extra license is NOT technically required in order to inject as long as the aforementioned licenses are maintained because Botox/Fillers are prescription medications, just like you would prescribe/administer Metoprolol or Oxycodone. (Hence why an RN needs an NP/MD/DO to sign off or write a standing order such as you would in a hospital setting).

Cosmetic injections in the untrained hand can cause significant safety issues and health concerns for clients. To achieve the proper training and provide high-quality care there are a few options. There are many options for training across Utah and the United States. Some more expensive than others (i.e. $4,500+) as well as other “pop up” training sessions that float to various cities across the country. Ultimately, you need to find an opportunity that best fits your budget and schedule! Some larger courses may have 10-15 students and may or may not allow practice on a model!

Dr. Hillary Taggart has found after several years of teaching and experience, that too much information is crammed into a 1-2 day injector training course with dozens of students leaving them overwhelmed and underprepared. She believes the best approach involves learning the basic principles of neurotoxin placement first, followed by how to inject basic fillers with several different models. With this experience and observation, Hillary offers training opportunities that start as low as $2,900 with opportunities to shadow her in her own clinic. Between her expertise in injecting, track record of organically growing her own private practice, and AMPLE teaching experience, she provides high quality, and thorough resources to teach and train the future of cosmetic injectors!
