FAQ

All registrations are submitted online for each AAI course.  To register for a nationally scheduled group training, please visit our online course calendar at https://www.aestheticadvancements.com/course-calendar/.  Follow the links for each individual course/date/location to get to the correct registration forms.  If you are interested in registering for an on-site, private training held at your facility with just your medical providers in attendance, please call or email us directly for setup and registration instructions.

Our nationally scheduled group training courses (all neurotoxins/dermal fillers levels and sclerotherapy) are typically priced at $1750 per person.  Pricing for a private, on-site training course depends on several factors, including, but not limited to, the number of participants planning to attend and the location of where the course will be held.  For a breakdown of general pricing for private trainings, please view our online course brochure at https://aestheticadvancements.com/2020-aai-brochure/.

In most instances, course participants will be required to bring their own injectable product and patient model if they intend on actively participating in the hands-on training during the afternoon session.  Additional details on the specific products that will need to be ordered, as well as model selection instructions will be provided upon confirmation of registration for each individual course.

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.

Yes, we do ask each person to bring along their own practice patient/model to inject during the hands-on portion of the course.  We suggest bringing a friend, family member or colleague for this treatment, or someone who is comfortable with you practicing on them and you are able to do your own follow up with after the training.  If the circumstances make it impossible for you to bring a model, AAI 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 email to admin@aestheticadvancements.com.
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.

Each course level requires a different amount of prior experience from participants and also covers different injection sites for neurotoxins and dermal fillers.  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 level course requires at least 3 years of prior consistent aesthetic injectable experience.  For a full list of injection sites covered in each course, please view our online course brochure at https://aestheticadvancements.com/2020-aai-brochure/.

Due to the very high demand and the limited size of our hands-on courses, an AAI representative will contact you within 24-48 business hours of receipt of online registrations to confirm acceptance.  Registrations received after 4pm EST on Friday will be replied to on the next business day.  Our corporate office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern Standard Time.

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, in some instances, AAI’s corporate staff may require written documentation affirming this prior to final registration for the course.

It is the responsibility of the student to procure and bring the FDA approved products ot be used during the hands-on injectable training session.  Product must be purchased directly from the manufacturers, and use of product brought in from outside the U.S. will not be permitted.  This includes “FDA approved” product purchased outside the U.S.  Students who bring products purchased outside the U.S. will not be allowed to inject the imported product at the AAI instructional Course.
“FDA approved” neurotoxins include BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.  “FDA approved” dermal fillers include the line of Juvederm products, the line of Restylane products, Beletero Balance, Radiesse, Revanesse Versa, the line of Teoxane RHA products, and Sculptra (though due to time restraints, Scupltra may not be used in most instances for our hands-on courses).  Participants are not required to bring all of the products listed above, but will be need to bring 1 vial of neurotoxins and 1-2 syringes of dermal fillers per practice patient/model.  Please visit https://aestheticadvancements.com/resources/student-training-forms/ to download AAI’s product ordering guide for contact information of the manufacturers of these injectables.

BoNTA is an abbreviated term for Botulinum Toxin Type A.  Other terms include neurotoxins and neuromodulators.  Aesthetic Advancements offers comprehensive training for the cosmetic applications of all FDA approved BoNTA products on the market, which include the brand names BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.

Aesthetic Advancements offers training on a variety of both Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers and also Non-HA dermal fillers.  HA fillers covered include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane), Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Beletero Balance, Revanesse Versa, Teoxane RHA 2, Teoxane RHA 3, and Teoxane RHA 4.  We also cover the non-HA fillers Radiesse and Sculptra.  Please note that while each of these dermal fillers are covered during the lecture portion of all course levels, Sculptra may only be used in very limited instances during the hands-on portion of the masters level course, and may not be used at all during the fundamental and advanced courses.

Each non-independent practitioner (i.e. RN, PA, in some instances NP, etc.) attending an AAI training will need to have a supervising physician sign an authorization form in order to be able to inject a model during the hands-on portion of the course.  The physician who signs this form does not need to be someone in the aesthetics industry specifically, but will need to be a physician (MD or DO) who is legally permitted to act as your supervising authority under their current license.  This form will in no way apply to the status of any previous, current, or future employment under this physician, but by signing this form, the physician is essentially agreeing to take liability for you on the day of the training itself.  To view the required physician authorization form, please visit https://form.jotform.com/aestheticadvancements/phyauth.
If you are not currently licensed as a physician, but are considered to be a fully independent practitioner in your state of licensure, then you will not be required to have a physician sign for you.  In those instances, we ask that you sign the required form yourself.
If you are a non-independent practitioner and are unable to submit a physician authorization form, then you may still attend an AAI training and just observe the hands-on portion.  However in order to be able to inject a model yourself, you will be required to have a physician to sign the authorization form.

In order to provide the most individualized instruction possible, AAI maintains a 5:1 student-teacher ratio in all of our courses.  In our nationally scheduled group trainings, there are typically 3-5 attendees, however we will occasionally have up to 10 students in a training course.  When there are more than 5 in attendance, we will send a second instructor to assist with the hands-on portion of the training.  For private, on-site training courses that are held at your practice, we offer one-on-one training for just 1 participant, or you can schedule up to 10 attendees.
