Botox® Training (Neurotoxins) and certification for physicians, nurses, dentists, and other licensed medical professionals.

This full 1-day Botox® training workshop (approved 8-hour AMA PRA Category 1 CME™) is an intensive program providing live patient hands-on training and on-site testing for Certification in Facial Botox® Cosmetic Injectables. This course is dedicated entirely to Neurotoxins, providing extensive detail and valuable “aesthetic pearls” from industry leading physician specialists and “celebrity” trainers, using all commercially available FDA approved Neurotoxins including Allergan’s Botox® Cosmetic, Xeomin® from Merz Pharma, Dyport® from Galderma, and the newest product on the market, Jeuveau™ from Evolus.

Empire has been providing this level of training since 2002 when Allergan first introduced their brand of neurotoxin and is still the preferred choice of training for medical professionals looking for Botox® and Dermal Filler medical education.

Nowhere in the USA will you find more intensive hands on Botox® Training than through Empire Medical Training. Empire is the nationwide leader with over 125,000 graduates, more than any other provider. We have perfected our proprietary teaching protocols to ensure each student receives a thorough education.

For over 21 years, Empire Medical Training has remained the most sought-after teaching organization for medical and dental practitioners seeking the highest quality, most comprehensive, evidence-based, AMA accredited Botox® and Dermal Filler Training programs.

For practitioners interested in becoming certified in Cosmetic injectables using neurotoxins, our full 8-hour Day of combined lecture and hands on training has become the gold standard. This program is highly recommended throughout the aesthetics industry as well as by Empire’s independent Physician Advisory Board (Physician Advisory Board comprised of plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and "preeminent" multi-specialty trained aesthetic physicians). Empire also offers a 1-Day Combined Botox®-Dermal Fillers Certification Course, providing the same level of training.

Caution Regarding Botox Training: Practitioners who are new to Aesthetics are strongly cautioned to avoid the many online, home-study, and half-day programs offered in Botox Training. These offerings and many other Aesthetic courses do not meet the minimum standards for Aesthetic education and certification. Practitioners are further urged to inquire about the qualifications of the instructors teaching the course prior to investing in your education and career. The best education begins with expert level physician-only instructors.


Medical and dental professionals will receive detailed and complete information on all the protocols associated with neurotoxins. Information will be provided on 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 of which are FDA approved Botulinum-A products.

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

To operate a successful aesthetic practice, it is important to understand the available products on the market, their differences, and the nuances between the uses of neurotoxins and dermal filler cosmetic injections. Each of the FDA approved options will be available and used during the hands-on portion of the class so you can decide for yourself which Botulinum product will best suit your practice objectives.

Morning Didactics: The lecture portion of the training will cover each of the neurotoxin products in detail, including their usages, best practices, and decision tree processes relating to your choice product and patient needs. Your instructors, who are renowned aesthetic physicians, will provide in-depth training on neurotoxin protocols, guidelines and techniques, as well as share preferred methods utilized in their own respective practices.

Perform Botox Procedures Safely: Equally important in your training are the precautionary measures needed to ensure safe technique. We provide you with the understanding of how to treat unwanted side effects, poor outcomes, worst-case scenarios related to more serious Botox adverse events and complications. Botox training by physicians-only instructors is essential, and even more optimal are plastic surgeons and other more qualified multi-specialty trained aesthetic physicians.

Facial Anatomy: The training incorporates highlights from Empire’s advanced Anatomical Facial Anatomy Training conducted at Columbia Medical University and other medical schools throughout the country. This training is invaluable in helping the attendee understand the anatomical structures involved when performing a facial injectable procedure such as with neurotoxins or dermal fillers. This will be critical for any practitioner to master in order to perform safe, worry-free Botox® injections.

Hands-On Training: Empire pioneered this kind of training over 21 years ago. As a result, we have secured relationships with the most renowned, expert Physician specialists to train Practitioners and share their wealth of knowledge and expertise.

Prominent instructors remain a hallmark to the quality education provided by Empire. Not only the very best aesthetic physicians in the industry, but physicians who are willing to share their proprietary methods for performing and creating the most desirable patient outcomes.

Unlike some seminars, our programs are not demonstration only. In fact, attendees are required to perform procedures under the direct supervision of an expert physician instructor in order to receive their certification. The afternoon session is reserved for intensive hands on training, where instructors will be carefully monitoring your technique and style of injecting to help improve upon your skills.

The workshop gives you the opportunity to use real Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) products on actual live volunteers. All medicines and supplies needed 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 conducted by the physician instructor.

Attendees have all afternoon to practice injections on live volunteer patients until they gain a level of comfort and pass the oral proficiency exam.

Our objective is to give our members the best experience in education. We remain committed to ensuring our methods are safe, organized, and professional especially when it comes to any portion of the hands-on sessions. For more information, view our Hands-On Disclosure
