This is not medical advice. Always talk with your own healthcare provider and medical provider for any cosmetic treatment and medical treatments.

You are looking for a provider and want to make sure that you are going to a safe provider who can give you the care that you need. And you’re wondering, can my medical esthetician give me Botox in the United States?

There are other places in the world that have other rules and regulations. The answers given are specific to the United States.

This is the overall information that you should know from the US from the vast majority of states, the way that we feel about prescription medication and the way that prescription medication should be safely delivered to a patient by medical providers. State laws and different states have little state regulations between them.

A RN or above in terms of anyone who can give Botox procedures or administers Botox injections to you.

Medical estheticians do not have the power in the United States to prescribe a medication.

Also, medical estheticians do not have the power in the United States to administer a prescription medication. Botox is a prescription medication.

Medical estheticians have a training that is really radically different than anybody who goes through nursing school or who goes through PA school becomes a nurse practitioner, becomes a physician. It is radically and vastly different.

Our medical esthetician at Blossom Medical, Tracy, is an angel from heaven, we all love her, she knows her skincare ingredients inside and out and can absolutely make a wonderful skincare plan for someone to really radically transform their skin using ZO Skin Health.

We still have products within our ZO Skin Health, our Hydroquinone and our Complex A, that are medical grade products that Dr. Nieman still prescribes to a patient even when Tracy has made up their whole skincare routine. When we get to those medical, those prescription grade ingredients, that is a conversation Tracy and Dr. Nieman have together.

Dr. Nieman actually will prescribe those to a patient.  That relationship and physician’s supervision has to happen in order for our patients to have safety, efficacy, follow up, and also somebody who is medically being responsible for any outcomes that that patient might have. Also for any concerns that patient might have in terms of their reactions or responses to that medication. That may require a physician to either make adjustments, may require supervision of a medical doctor to help with any side effects or anything else that happens with those medications.

It is critically important that relationship is intact and in place.  That’s the way that we work at Blossom Medical.

You could walk into the store to pick up Motrin or Tylenol. Also, at a store you could pick up vitamin C. You can walk into the store and pick up retinol. At the store you could pick up a product with hyaluronic acid.

Those are skincare ingredients that we’ve said are safe. So, a medical esthetician can offer you those products.

A medical esthetician can use those products, but can’t write you a prescription for an antibiotic. She can’t write you a prescription for Botox. You could not walk into the store to purchase Botox since it is a prescription.

Botox has to come from somebody who has a medical background. Whether it’s a nurse practitioner or a physician.

Registered nurses can administer medications because of their extensive training. RN’s do it all day long inside the hospital, inside clinics, giving vaccines, giving medications at the bedside, managing my ICU nurses manage a wall full of really critically important just cardiovascular drips and medications to keep people alive.

Registered nurses know how to and been trained. They’re highly specialized and trained to administer medications to patients.

With the RN background comes not only the ability, but the responsibility to administer Botox to a patient as injectable providers.

Sitting in your shoes, we would want a registered nurse or a higher degree to administer Botox and that treatment to me. A medical esthetician should not be administering a Botox treatment to a patient. In the United States, that’s a widely acceptable practice.

That registered nurse or a higher degree is able to administer Botox.

We care about your safety and best results. We care that you are making sure that you are seeing providers who are going to give you the best possible treatment. Not only do a treatment, but also make sure that that treatment is well done. And also manage any complications of that treatment. And that has to be in the purview of people with a distinct medical background.

We hope that that helps you make smart choices in the providers that you choose with this important information. If you happen to be in the Northern Virginia area, I would love to see you as a patient at Blossom Medical.
