Aesthetic Nurse Training

Posted on November 1, 2014 | No Comments on Aesthetic Nurse Training

Formal training on aesthetic or cosmetic nursing is very rare in the Philippines. More often than not, the trainings that are available are conducted by a foreign training institution (e.g. American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine) sponsored by a local organization. In the Philippines, the most common way for a nurse to learn about aesthetic nursing is to get employed in aesthetic clinics or hospitals in which one gets hands on training and experience in fat grafting, skin aging evaluation, liposuction, botox injection, chemical peeling, Mesotherapy, Face Lifting, dermal filler, post-operative care and prevention or dealing with complications. This is why getting employed in derma clinics also involve rigid training.

However, there are training programs or courses which can possibly provide knowledge on aesthetic nursing such as Plastic and Reconstructive training at the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital as well as fellowship training on the same subject in the Veterans Memorial Medical Center, Makati Medical Center, University of East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial medical Center and Rizal Medical Center. This programs and fellowship included lectures and training on Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Alar Base Trimming, Cheek augmentation, Dimples Creation, Facelift, Mammoplasty, Mastopexy (Breast reduction), Liposuction and scar revision. As such, they apparently touch subjects or issues on aesthetic nursing. However, these fellowship and trainings are primarily and exclusively available for surgeons.

Perhaps, one can inquire if there are similar programs available for nurses. Others institutions that offer training program on cosmetic surgery included the Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Manila. One can also opt to inquire with the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery if they have aesthetic nurse training programs available.
