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.
A medical director must be a licensed physician.
Yes, we offer a cadaver course once a year in the fall. It’s an unmatched educational experience focused on safety, anatomy, and complication management. You’ll leave this course with the confidence you’ve always needed to inject with ease. All while networking with thought leaders in the industry.
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.

No you do not. Once you’re under medical directorship through our referral program, then you do not need to pay the monthly membership fee. You will be given a code to bypass the billing section so you can create login credentials an explore our resources.

Aesthetic buddies are senior injectors, who we feel would make great mentors for beginner injectors. Buddies are a great support system that we provide to beginner injectors so you can ask questions or bounce ideas off them.

Once you are done with the onboarding process, you will schedule a virtual orientation where you will learn how to pick up product through your medical director

The Audrey Rose Institute was created to make breaking into the medical aesthetics industry easy and affordable for all. We pride ourselves on helping beginner injectors create their own personalized journey as they navigate the industry. We value hands-on practice and one-to-one class settings, as well as clear and concise communication.

There are endless opportunities in the medical aesthetics industry, and we highly suggest that you explore them by continuing your education and practicing. We encourage you to take Advanced Neurotoxin or the Advanced Lip Workshop.

If you have a medical director, you must contact them first in case of an adverse event. If you would like more support, you may also contact our Aesthetic Code Team. The Aesthetic Code Team or ACT is exclusive to our network members, and it is a team of trusted and experienced injectors within our network who have volunteered to provide advice to injectors experiencing an adverse event.

Our Fellowship Program was tailored for injectors within our Network who are interested in the highest level of training that ARI has to offer. The Fellowship is 6 months long and our fellows are expected to come to the office at least once a week for an 8-hour shadow day. After the first 3 months, the fellow will participate in their first personal hands-on clinic and another one at the 6-month mark. ARI Fellows will have the opportunity to shadow advanced injectors like Audrey Rose or another Age-less Weigh-less injector.

Our On-Demand courses are a great opportunity for those who are tight on time and may not have time to join us in the office for two in-person trainings. Our On-Demand courses allow for students to take the didactic portion of the course at home and on their own time. Once the didactic portion has been completed, we will schedule an in-person hands-on clinic, where the student will join us in office to practice injecting 4-6 models. We offer an On-demand option for Intro to Neurotoxin and Intro to Dermal Fillers.

We recommend that all beginner injectors start with our Intro to Neurotoxin Course. Intro to Neurotoxin will give beginner injectors a solid foundation of injection and aesthetic knowledge. Intro to Neurotoxin is also a prerequisite to all other courses offered at ARI.
