Botox® Training courses and Certification for Physicians, Nurses, Dentists, and other Licensed Healthcare Professionals

The Botox® and Filler courses from Empire Medical Training remain the most sought-after certification pathways in the aesthetics industry by physicians, nurses, dentists, and other licensed healthcare practitioners.

Our Botox Training courses are comprehensive with hands-on training as an integral part of the program in additions to testing to ensure each attendee has satisfied the requirements for certification in Botox and Dermal Filler injectables.

Attend the only AMA Accredited, evidenced-based training of facial aesthetic injectables using all commercially available Neurotoxin products. With so many so called “expert trainers” emerging on the internet, you can rely on Empire’s 21-year history of training in all the aesthetic injectable products from the different Neuromodulators such as Allergan Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau® to the plethora of Dermal Filler products like Juvederm®, (Juvederm® Ultra, Ultra Plus), Restylane®, (Restylane Lyft, Restylane® Silk, Radiesse®, Sculptra® , and many other commercially available Dermal Fillers in the United States.

Empire’s complete Botox® and Dermal Filler training programs allows students to choose between a full day of combined lecture and intensive hands-on in either Botox® or Dermal Fillers (single/full day Botox or single/full day Dermal Fillers), or the 1-day combined Botox and Filler Training course.

Since the Botox® Cosmetic in 2002 by Allergan, Empire has been offering full one-day courses in Neuromodulators which remains the recommended standard of training. A full day of either Botox® or Dermal Fillers provides more hands-on training in each area. However, to be competitive in our offerings and to provide a “fast track” for those who wish to complete their training in Botox® and Fillers in one day, Empire offers a 1-Day comprehensive certification course in Botox and Fillers.

The continuing medical education credit provided through our course is as follows:
Botox Training for Physicians - 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Botox Training for Nurses - 8.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education

1-Day Combined Botox®/Dermal Fillers Certification Course - registration info, dates, locations, upcoming courses

Provides the same complete training in Botox® and Fillers, but condensed into a one-day course. Get ready for an intensive training day! Shorter lunch, fewer breaks, less chit chat with friends, but a faster education!

botox training workshop

Empire Medical Training "Celebrity" Physician Instructors best in industry!

The workshop gives you the opportunity to use real Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) products on actual live volunteers, all medicines and supplies needed that would be used in the training are provided as part of your tuition price.

The hands-on portion of the training starts right after lunch and ends when the attendee completes the oral Botox® proficiency exam which is conducted by the Physician instructor. Attendees will not automatically pass and the decision to pass/fail lies solely with the Physician instructor. Attendees who do not pass may repeat the course at no charge. Our objective is to not only provide the highest quality education but also to produce competent practitioners.

Attendees are given the opportunity to work with some of the most renowned, expert Aesthetic practitioners in the industry, which remains one of Empire’s distinguishing features regarding our Botox Training courses.

Attendees have all afternoon to practice injections on live volunteer patients and there is no limit on how much product you can use or how many procedures (within reason) you may perform. The limiting factor falls within the time allotted. The objective is for the student to become proficient and “feel” comfortable performing all aspects of Botox® injections safely used in Aesthetics as well as being able to manage possible Botox Adverse Events and Complications.

Recommended Preparation:

Advanced Facial Anatomy Cadaver Workshop for Aesthetics (LIVE OR VIDEO PROGRAM): A requirement for all non-core (other than Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists) attendees who wish to participate in any Facial Aesthetic Hands On Course. This valuable program will serve to help practitioners avoid complications while performing Aesthetic injections and procedures. Learn from “the best” how to avoid poor outcomes, complications, as well as legal and malpractice issues.

Empire strongly urges participants to complete either the live Facial Cadaver Workshop* OR the Video ON Demand* program which will satisfy the requirement. The Video ON Demand* program can be viewed at any time from your "MyMembersPortal.com".

Graduates will receive a Certificate indicating their completion of this Advanced Facial Cadaver Course and a written statement on each Certificate earned in Aesthetics. Certificates should be submitted to your malpractice carrier.

The program is approved for 9 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

Volunteer Botox® Training Patients:

There is never a charge to volunteers for receiving Botox® injections, or any Aesthetic treatments during any of the Empire programs. Our volunteers typically receive a variety of high demand procedures during the Botox® training sessions, supervised by some of the most experienced, most renowned Aesthetic Physicians, you are welcome to bring along a friend or companion to train on and demonstrate your expertise. If you are unable to bring a volunteer to the course, Empire will provide you with a volunteer patient for the hands-on portion of the Botox® Training class.

Commercial Partners

Unlike other seminars, Empire is proud to partner with over a hundred important Vendors who participate in each program, sharing information on the latest and greatest in the Aesthetics industry.

Empire is the only organization to combine the classic “small group, hands-on workshop” with the larger scale, industry recognized “Convention or Aesthetics Show” with hundreds of suppliers filling the room with their exciting technologies and new products to discover. Empire events are not just educational, their fun and exciting and offer plenty of networking opportunities!

In between classes and during lunch, attendees have the opportunity to walk the exhibit hall, learn about new products for your med spa or practice. Set up your Botox® and Dermal Fillers injectable account with Allergan, Merz Aesthetics, or one of the other suppliers, get a head start on new Botox marketing strategies while talking to the most prominent digital media experts in the industry. Here’s the best part, as a result of Empire’s brand for quality education within the Aesthetics industry, our partners provide special discount opportunities, exclusive to Empire participants, nowhere else can you purchase your Botox® or Dermal Filler products cheaper!


Medical and Dental Professionals will receive detailed and complete information on all the protocols associated with each of the Botulinum Toxin Type A products such as Botox® Cosmetic as well as the newer, highly effective Xeomin® and Dysport®, and the newest Neurotoxin, Jeuveau®, all are FDA approved Botulinum-A products.

To operate a successful aesthetic practice, it is important to understand all the products on the market and their differences. It is common for patients to request their favorite brand or product so it’s best to be prepared and knowledgeable. Each of the FDA approved products will be available and used during the hands-on portion of the class so you can decide on your own which Botulinum product will best suit your practice objectives.

Botox® Certification and Board Certification in Aesthetics:

This is a Botox certification program intended only for qualified Medical and Dental Professionals. After completion of the Botox course and demonstration of proficiency, you will receive your certification and course certificate. Attendees also have the option to receive their certificate framed in an attractive wood and metal plaque.

Additional pathways are available for the dedicated professional who seeks further credentialing and certification in Aesthetics. Practitioners can become “Board Certified” in Aesthetics through the A.A.O.P.M which requires additional Botox inejction training and testing. Only qualified Medical and Dental Professionals will be accepted into the program. Feel free to speak with your account representative to see if you qualify.
