    Leo,

    I went to AEI, Aesthetic Enhancement Institute. They are based in Florida but do the seminars in several other states throughout the year including New Jersey, Virginia, and California. The have many courses-facial aesthetics (chemical peels and microdermabrasion), dermal fillers, sclerotherapy, tatoo removal, and other ones that I can't remember. You can take all of them or just one. I took the facial aesthetics one, because I can do those procedures where I live without a doctor. They run about $2000 for each course I think. Each course is 1-2 days depending on which one you choose. And sometimes they offer all the courses together at the same place spanning 1-2 weeks. So if you want to take all of them at once, you can. There is also a place in Texas I heard about that I really wanted to go to, but i couldn't work that one out. I can't remember the exact name, something like "Dallas Advanced Medical Aesthetics." The owner is Dr. Fam. He instructs too I think. I sent an email to the link provided at their site, and he wrote me back personally. Their program teaches all the courses together and is about 2 weeks. Its more expensive of course but cheaper than paying for each separate course taught at the other places. Hope that helps.

    I called today and found out that it will cost $100 to place an ad in the local ad mailer for my aesthetic business. I would only need to get two customers as a result in order to not lose money from placing the ad. Has anyone seen good results with placing these types of ads? This paper reaches 100,000 homes in the area.

    Sounds like a great idea.
    Also, remember most newspapers will post a "news release" for free where you can explain you business and your background as well a submit a picture of yourself.

    I am an RN and also have an esthetician license. I haven't been able to apply for any jobs yet due to an injury, but I attended an epidermal leveling class and one of the girls working in a plastic surgeon's office told me the

    Hi Tanya,

    I am new to this site and saw your posting of the course you are planning to attend in Texas. I would greatly appreciate any information you can provide about the course. I am currently in Aesthetician school expecting to graduate in February. Beauty school training is a whole other topic, but in my state, it is better to be a licensed esthetician in addition to RN for private practice. Good luck @ the course!!

    Who at the newspaper do you contact to get your news published? I feel like everytime I call I get directed to the advertising department.

    I am critical care nurse and have always been extremely interested in cosmetic surgery. I would like to make the transition from critical care to become an aesthetic nurse, and need to know the best way to do this. I have found teaching clinics but don't know which ones are worth the money or if I should try to get employeed by a cosmetic surgeon and let him send me to the classes. Any advice from someone with experience in this field of work?

    Rudy, I was in a similar situation. The information about Medical Aesthetics is very "all over the place". What I ended up doing is attending a training session at Esthetic Skin Institute as well as one at Aesthetic Enhancement Institute (seem to be the 2 biggest and most popular training companies around - both led by nurses).

    It's been a few months since your post? What did you end up doing?

    Hi I am a student nurse and about to graduate in May with my BSN. I am very interested in this area and was wondering if anyone knew the legalities regarding working with a physician if youre an NP and wanting to open up your own business? Also, if wanting to become a Nurse Practitioner, what area would I go into if wanting to open a business regarding esthetics? Thanks so much, I love this forum!

    Hi Nurse Ratched,

    Welcome to this forum.. I think it is great,too.

    You didn't mention which state you are in or plan to practice in, so I would suggest that you check with your state board of nursing to see what your scope of practice will allow. One of the real issues here is liability!!! If you work for a physician, you will most likely be covered under his malpractice policy, but if you are a private contractor, you will need to carry your own liability insurance. If you set up a private practice, in some states you may need a business license. And it might be helpful to incorporate as a business. All depends on the state you plan to practice. To my knowledge there is not a NP for esthetics, as a sub-specialty. There may be one in the future, but one would need to check with the academic world on that issue.

    This is a rapidly growing area for the healthcare and beauty industries. I would suggest that you gain some general experience after graduation, such as work in dermatolgy, surgery, or general nursing. Try to find additional training in skin care @ institutes that offer clinical experience, if your choice is to entry into this area immediatly after school.. Good luck to you!!
