Hi All,

I was wondering if any aesthetic RNs received training from Empire Medical Training? I am looking into their courses and they currently have an annual membership special which would save $$ on courses. But just I'm concerned about the quality of education given from this place considering I would be dishing out more money at once than buying a course individually. Any RNs have any personal experience with this company?

Thanks!

Hello Martin Lie - I have not heard of Empire Medical Training. I took my aesthetics training in San Diego with the American Board of Aesthetic Medicine (ABAM). 

I believe the best place to start is laser/light therapies and botulinum toxins. To be honest, now that I am getting my feet wet in the field (as a side hustle) ... I would LOVE to get more training and learn more tricks. It really is such a fun field!!!

Best of luck to you.

Not much money in it, however.  Allergan has raised prices continuously through the last 14 years.  The middle (us) is getting squeezed.  There are not many discounts available, even to the larger practices.  Yes, discounts on fillers, no to neurotoxins.  The prices are so competitive in our market it makes it not worth competing.  Some people import from Canada (illegal, and yes you can go to jail!)  We could do this until July 2017 when it was cut off.

Thank you all for your response! Aesthetics nursing is something I am still considering. I may just take an individual course, see how I like it, and go from there.

I am looking into Aesthetic courses, and empire seems to have many bad reviews if you look at the better business bureau- BBB. they seem like a bit of a scam to me.

I do not know if this will help I know a NP that got some of his training from University of Phoenix which is also a online university. He is well respected by his peers.
