Who Can Administer Facial Fillers?

In all states, licensed physicians, physician assistants, and nurses are authorized to administer Botox injections and facial fillers for facial rejuvenation. Dentists, doctors, nurses, naturopaths, and pharmacists typically do not graduate with any formal training in the field of cosmetic injectables. To provide treatment, they must usually complete postgraduate training before administering any treatments. It is important to note that PTIFA is not a regulatory body and only offers training courses.

PTIFA is proud that their curriculum surpasses all regulatory standards in the world, including the highest standard of practice developed by the Alberta Dental Association and College. It is recommended to check with your regulatory body for guidelines specific to your jurisdiction. Medical professionals such as doctors or nurses are eligible for Botox injections; however, beauticians are not allowed to inject Botox as it is not within their scope of practice. The difference between facial fillers and Botox injections is that facial fillers use collagen to stimulate natural collagen growth in the face and lift tissue to compensate for previous loss of collagen.

Professionals who have become highly skilled in facial contouring and improvement with various injectables such as botulism toxins, dermal fillers, and Kybella are highly sought after.
