Boston College Connell School of Nursing  Professional Development and Continuing Education has partnered with LexRx to bring a new series of didactic and hands-on trainings for Clinical Aesthetics.

Complete all three courses to earn a Clinical Aesthetics Injectables Certificate. Please note: the Neurotoxins course is a prerequisite for the Biostimulators/Sculptra and Ha Dermal Fillers courses.

Neurotoxins - BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin® are injectable treatments that prohibit nerve signals from activating the facial muscles, effectively forcing the treated facial muscles to relax, smoothing out the whole face and making it younger and vibrant looking.

Biostimulators - Sculptra® Aesthetic/PPLA (Poly-L-lactic Acid) is an injectable treatment, which helps replace lost collagen and stimulate gradual restoration of the collagen framework, creating a subtle, refined correction of wrinkles.

HA Dermal Fillers - Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used specifically for lip enhancement and/or augmentation, marionette lines (corners of the mouth), nasolabial folds (smile lines and/or laugh lines), and midface volumization (cheek enhancement).

Advanced Hands-on Training

This additional training and mentorship opportunity allows you to gain more confidence as an injector and perfect your skill set.

You will inject and learn at a dedicated "treatment area" for the advanced hands-on experience, separate from the 1st time learners.

This 4 hour course includes a 30 minute planning session, 3 hours injection and observation time, and a 30 minute outcomes discussion. 

2 sessions available:

  • 8 am - 12 pm
  • 12 pm - 4 pm
