I doubt any instructors still tell their students to practice on oranges any more.

No is it absurd to practice on oranges, in most practice it takes place first on artificial skin and then on patients. For more serious techniques, the teacher closely monitors in order not to injure the patient. For easy techniques such supervision is not required.

Before taking the dermal filler and botox courses, I received a nurse education so I can take additional qualification courses. I have a license to inject, but there is not enough practice in this. When did you go through the procedures, what role did the nurse play near you? If not a secret what other procedures did you go through?

Could you please elaborate on what a "nurse education" entails. Are you a licensed nurse in the US? There is nothing secret about the nursing curriculum. 

I would like to give answers if I better understood the question.

Who pays you for your services? I doubt insurance would pay for something so cosmetic.

So does that limit you to a clientele that has discretionary income?

Nursing education means I graduated from medical university. I received my nurse education there. So I have a diploma of graduation. After graduation, I tried myself in a public clinic, then in a private one. About 2 years ago, I became interested in injection procedures - dermal fillers, Botox, etc. I found and took courses teaching them how to introduce these products, what they consist of, which ones are best to choose. We practiced and in the end I got a license - permission to inject this products.

The patient pays for my services after the procedure. And further, I do not understand the substance of your question.

Are you outside of the United States, or in the United States? I think this may be causing some confusion and may help others answer your questions better.

No offense meant, nor was I being smarty-mouth. You did ask for some  thoughts on your practice.

I always think of the financial side of things. Like Medicaid patients wouldn't have the financial ability to manage cosmetic services. So you would be looking at private-pay clients. And locale - downtown Newark, NJ and surroundings would be vastly different than a more upscale cosmopolitan area.

I was just asking is if there really is a large enough pool of clients for your own practice/business. You were asking more for actual clinical practice information.

I always think of the money end of things. That's where we differed here.

I've retired and although I own my own home with some LITTLE savings here and there, I personally would not be thinking of your services (Oh, that I wish I could!)  It would be nice though!

Again, sorry for the miscommunication.

(And just an aside, in nsg school, I had an instructor who brought in a  chunk of roast pork/beef for we students to practice injections. The meat mass gave a more realistic 'feel' for real human arms/butts.)

It's outside the US now, but I'll be back to the states soon.

At the moment there are not many clients, so I still can't think of my private office) we also practiced on meat but raw, but then switched to artificial leather, so it looked more realistic.

Good luck on your practice.

And it was a RAW roast we practiced on. I just thought it was great of her to use her own freezer roast to then throw out. (Again, thinking of her cost back then!)  But I have good injection technique because of that roast!!!

It's very funny, but it works. Given the importance of the procedure, you can't learn how to inject people from day one as this can lead to not good ones.
