  • AAI is pleased to offer the highest-quality, and widest selection of instructional aesthetic training courses in the industry. Because we have several types courses and scenarios for taking our courses (onsite or at a location near you), most course attendees find it easiest to speak with one of AAI’s professional Aesthetic Education Liaisons for additional information pertaining to pricing for the training scenario best suited to their individual needs.. You can reach AAI’s Aesthetic Education Liaison team at 800-714-4811 or by completing the Request for Brochure form.

     

  • For the injectable training sessions, please note that injectable product is not included in the course fee. Students will simply need to bring their own product to the injectable course if they intend on participating in the hands-on training during the afternoon session.

     

  • In states where scope of practice allows administration of injectables by allied health professionals with less than an R.N. degree, AAI will allow this medical professional to take part in the course only if they are accompanied by their Medical Director (i.e. MD, DO, PA, and in some states NP) who will pay a program auditing fee for the course, and will be eligible to report for credit.

     

  • For injectable hands-on aesthetic training courses, it is recommended that the students bring their own model in which to inject the product that they are bringing. Many students choose to bring a friend, family member, or colleague for this treatment. If the training circumstances make it impossible for you to bring a model, your Aesthetic Education Liason will be happy to work with you to determine the best course of action for your situation. Once confirmed, the schedule for your model will be sent to you with the confirmation for your registration.

     

  • Please note: All cancellations must be received (not postmarked) in writing or by fax transmission to 888-205-1434.

    A refund will be given, less a $150.00 administrative/processing fee if canceled 14 days prior to the start of the course. Any cancellation less than 14 days or “No Shows” will not qualify for a refund. If we are within the 14 day period and we are able to find a “replacement participant”, we will gladly switch your course fee to another applicable training date without penalty; however, if a replacement is not found the full amount of training will not be refunded. Due to this policy, weather related cancellations are considered “No Shows” if the program is conducted.

    As we do require a minimum number of registrants per each class, and if we do not meet this minimum (14 days prior to the training), or for any other reason beyond our control the course is canceled or postponed, the registration fee will be refunded in full. Please note Aesthetic Advancements, Inc. is not responsible for deposits to hotels, fees associated with necessary airline changes or non-refundable airline tickets.

    Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Some classes fill well in advance, so it is advised to register as soon as possible. We cannot reserve space in this program without receipt of registration packet and payment. You will receive written confirmation from our office when we receive your payment/registration. If you have not received a confirmation within 10 days, please contact us. Your registration is not finalized until you receive a confirmation from our staff. Confirmations are generally sent via the email address you provide on your registration packet. Due to the limited space available in this class, we are unable to accommodate unregistered participants the day of training.

  • The main difference in each course level is the amount of prior experience required for each participant and the sites of injection that are covered during each class.  Our fundamental course is intended for beginners, the advanced course requires a minimum of 6 months-1 year of prior consistent experience, and the masters course requires at least 3 years of prior, consistent experience.  For a full list of injection sites covered in each course, please click here.  While we do cover all FDA approved neurotoxins (BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane), Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Beletero Balance, Radiesse and Sculptra) during the lecture portion of each course, the dermal filler Juvederm Voluma may only be used during the hands-on of the advanced and masters courses.  Also, the dermal filler Sculptra may only be used during hands-on of the masters course.  Neither may be used during the fundamental course.

  • Due to the very high demand for AAI instructional courses, and the limited size of our hands on courses, an Aesthetic Education Liaison will contact you within 24-48 hours (M-Thursday) of receipt of online registrations to confirm your registration. Registrations received after 4 pm on Friday will be replied to on Monday (or next business day if holiday).

     

  • AAI courses are held within a medical office, within your facility, at one of our National training centers, or in a hotel conference room.

     

  • Licensed practitioners whom are acting in accordance with their state license may attend AAI hands-on instructional courses. The subject of the instructional course must be within your scope of practice for your licensure in your state. For legal and insurance reasons, AAI’s corporate staff may require written documentation affirming this prior to final registration for the course.

     

  • Product procurement of F.D.A.-approved products for use in the hands-on injectable training session will be the responsibility of the student. Product should be purchased directly from the manufacturers. Use of product brought in from outside the U.S. will not be permitted; this includes “FDA approved” product purchased outside the US. Students who bring these products to the hands-on training session will not be allowed to inject the imported product at the AAI instructional course. “FDA approved” neurotoxins include BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin.  “FDA approved” dermal fillers include the line of Juvederm products, the line of Restylane products, Beletero Balance, Radiesse, and Sculptra.  Click here to download AAI’s product ordering guide for contact information of the manufacturers of these injectables.
