Whenever a new market develops, it takes time for regulation to catch up and, in the meantime, there can be problems with less than fully trained practitioners entering the area. In the field of facial aesthetics, it is important that patients have plenty of good practitioners to choose from so that they can get the right advice, the right treatment and the results they want. One subset of this growing field is that of dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections that are administered to areas of the face that are suitable in order to fill out certain areas of the face. There are a number of things that can be injected and choosing which one is right for each client is key. The special knowledge involved means that it is positive that the number of training courses available such as Botox Training Club.
A great training course will offer plenty of literature and small groups to learn in so that trainees have lots of focused attention. It is important that people research their course thoroughly and check testimonials and qualifications of the people involved so that they can be sure they are getting the best training. The course should also offer excellent back up once you have finished the course so that you can continue to learn and tackle any unexpected occurrences or new patient issues with confidence and the knowledge of an experienced practitioner.
Why are nurses learning to administer these injections?
Nurses are natural candidates for learning to offer dermal fillers. They are already well trained with a solid medical background which includes the administration of injections. They know how to empathise and listen to patients so that they can offer the right advice and care and they are already aware of the need for solid ethical grounding when talking to patients. This is especially true when offering elective procedures such as non-surgical cosmetic work. The patient needs to consent to the work involved and do so having fully understood what to expect in terms of procedure as well as result. It is also important that they consider other factors such as costs, longevity and possible side effects. Nurses are already trained in this type of dialogue and so any further training will simply be an extension of their skills.
