Aesthetic medicine nursing is a highly skilled specialty, which continues to evolve. A survey of 197 experienced aesthetic medicine nurses practicing in eight countries revealed shortcomings in the current approach to their education, training, and registration. Education and training are currently self-identified and self-funded and are often provided by the companies that manufacture or distribute the products used in aesthetic medicine treatments. Accreditation and registration schemes are not mandatory, and an international professional governing body is lacking to facilitate international cooperation and sharing of best practice. There is a need for an academic, coherent, and comprehensive approach to the training and education of aesthetic medicine nurses that will equip them with the knowledge and experience to not only administer treatments and attain natural looking results but also prevent, recognize, and manage any potential complications associated with such treatments.
