ARI COURSE INFORMATION

We recommend taking the Intro to Neurotoxins course first, as it is a prerequisite for all our other courses.
Entering the field of aesthetic medicine starts with training and researching your state laws and regulations.  First, you’ll want to take our Intro to Neurotoxin course as it is a prerequisite for all our other courses. Next, take the Intro to Dermal filler course and then finally the Lip Augmentation course. After those three courses, we suggest practicing the basics for 6 months to a year and then consider taking more advanced training to further your skills.

Our On-demand courses for Intro to Neurotoxin and Intro to Dermal fillers are a great option for someone eager to get trained and may not want to wait for our next in-person course date or if they have a scheduling conflict for the upcoming course date. The On-demand curriculum allows students to do the didactic portion on their own time through a pre-recorded webinar. Students come in at a later scheduled date to complete the hands-on portion in person.
Our hybrid course and live course have no difference in content or credit hours. The only difference is the didactic portion is simply over a live webinar instead of in person. The live webinar is a small class size allowing everyone to participate by asking questions and through group discussion.
