Providing Botox can be very lucrative, given that the procedure is such a simple one and that it’s in such high demand.

If you have a background in medicine, it’s easy to learn how to provide this versatile procedure. So, how long does it take to become a Botox doctor?

How Long Does It Take to Become a Botox Doctor With Certification?

The first step to being a Botox doctor is to go to medical school and be a doctor. But if you would still like to provide Botox injection services but aren’t a doctor, never fear! In many states you don’t need to be a doctor to be certified in these treatments, though you will need to be overseen by a doctor.

Check your state licencing board to determine if you can practice in your state. In Maryland, you must be a licensed RN, NP, PA, MD, or DDS to provide Botox.

Once you know that you can legally provide these treatments in your state, you should get certified through a reputable training course provided by licensed medical professionals, starting with a beginner course for those new to cosmetic injections.

How Long Does It Take to Become a Botox Doctor If I’m Already A Doctor?

If you are already a practicing, licenced doctor, you are likely able to apply Botox in any state in the country. Always check the laws with your local state licence board, especially if you want to oversee nurses or physician’s assistants. 

You will need to take a comprehensive Botox training course to become certified in administering facial treatments and make sure that any of your employees who want to practice Botox are also certified.
