About the Workshop
Our Botox Training & Certification Courses are designed for physicians, nurses, dentists, and other licensed health-care practitioners. Hands-on instruction and training are always conducted by renowned “physician only” trainers. Botox classes cover the administration of Botox for all common and less common aesthetic and medical uses for the aesthetic practitioner. 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ provided.
Additional Course Information
With its combination of classroom learning and hands-on workshops, the Philadelphia Complete Botox® Training event is the ideal place to gain a complete education in aesthetic treatments.
The curriculum focuses on botulinum toxin Type-A, the way it functions, and how it is used for Botox injections. You also learn about basic and advanced Botox techniques, how to administer injections, and how to complete procedures safely.
While the didactic lectures are an effective way to learn, the hands-on training is an essential part of the process. You’ll be taught, step-by-step, by our board-certified instructors. These experts, all clinic owners with years of Botox experience, will teach you the proper techniques, offer in-depth feedback, and answer any inquiries you may have. Working with volunteer patients, you’ll also deal with an assortment of facial rhytids, ranging from dimpled chin to crow’s feet.
With the “Complete Botox Training” name, it is understandable which treatment type has the main focus. However, the two other program workshops boost your education for dermal fillers and other facial aesthetic treatments. By expanding into other areas, you can offer more services for patients.
Furthermore, once you have completed the training weekend, you are rewarded with an eight-hour 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
Attend our Philadelphia Complete Botox® Training program, and you will learn:
- Basic facial anatomy and key Botox injection sites
- The differences between botulinum toxin Type-A products (such as Botox®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®). For those interested in getting the most from the course training, we have conveniently scheduled the Dermal Filler Training program in the afternoon. This course will teach Dermal Filler products (such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Radiesse®, Belotero®, and more)
- Specific techniques and methods for injecting Botox procedures
- The mechanism of action for each type of medication and formulation
- How to identify ideal candidates for Botox treatments and exclude unsuitable candidates (such as those with medical contraindications)
- How to properly and effectively inject botulinum toxin Type-A while reducing procedure risk and patient complications
- The generally accepted protocols for botulinum toxin Type-A administration for both aesthetic and medical complaints
- The proper guidelines for the patient acquisition and charting, including management of required paperwork like medical intake and informed consent forms
- How to manage patient preferences and expectations before treatment

Who the event is for?
The Complete Botox® Training program is aimed at medical professionals from various different backgrounds. In the past, we have helped the likes of physicians, nurses, and dentists in their quest to step into the cosmetic treatment sector. Along with being certified to perform Botox, dermal fillers, and other aesthetic treatments, our training supplies you with the knowledge and confidence to provide patients with treatments at the best possible standards. With the event in Philadelphia, it is ideal for those based in the city or nearby areas such as Wilmington, Allentown, Cherry Hill, Vineland, Lancaster, and New York. However, with Philadelphia being one of the most connected cities in the United States, it’s also a suitable destination for those visiting from further afield.
Preparation is essential for the Philadelphia Complete Botox® Training program. Fortunately, we have covered all bases in that regard. Via our state-of-the-art online educational portal, you can access all prerequisite instructional materials – including professionally produced videos and a comprehensive color training manual – as soon as you sign up for the program.
From complication avoidance to in-depth protocols, the prerequisite materials cover various topics you need to be aware of before starting your in-person training.

Color Training Manual & Videos
The color training manual and videos are accessible via the EMT educational portal. These materials are viewable on all suitable devices, including smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. They also cover the likes of:

Additional Aesthetic Procedures and Advanced Injection Techniques
Despite what the name suggests, the Philadelphia Complete Botox® Training program teaches you about more than just Botox. It places a strong emphasis on teaching participants about other facial aesthetic procedures – such as dermal fillers. With this expanded knowledge, your practice can ultimately provide more services for patients.
To meet the policies and demands of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, the program’s workshops – Complete Botox Training, Dermal Filler, and Facial Aesthetics – were put together with incredible care and attention. By going to these lengths, we are able to provide 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to those that complete the program. The awarding of these credits is possible due to our association with the ACCME-accredited Medication Education Resources.
Another organization we work with is the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. This partnership is beneficial for nurses that sign up for our training. Once the program is completed, these healthcare professionals can claim 8.0 contact hours for their continued nursing education.

Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown
The Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown is more than just the host of our Philadelphia Complete Botox Training, Dermal Filler, and Facial Aesthetics workshops. It is a three-star hotel with all the facilities you could need for a productive, comfortable stay. The property’s main highlight, its downtown location, also means you are within minutes of some of the city’s most revered attractions.
To get a better idea about the hotel, here’s a quick rundown of the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown’s main features:

How to Get Here
Thanks to its location right in the heart of Philadelphia, you won’t struggle to find or reach the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown. It’s also less than ten miles from Philadelphia International Airport, which means you can get out of the airport and at the hotel within 20 minutes by car.
From Philadelphia International Airport
If you rent a car from Philadelphia International Airport, here’s how to get to the hotel without any issue – other than potential traffic!
- Exit the airport and drive onto Interstate 95 South to Exit 22
- Continue the journey on Highway 676 West, going until you reach the Broad Street Exit
- Get onto 15th street and continue for half a block until you reach Spring Street
- On Spring Street, turn right and continue for one block, taking a right turn onto 16th Street
- Travel a further quarter-block, and you will see the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown on your left
If a rental car is not on the agenda, there are alternative methods for getting to the hotel and around the city. A one-way taxi to the hotel will only set you back $25 approximately. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), ranking as one of the top ten in the nation’s best, also supplies a train service that takes you directly from the airport to the city center. You are then within comfortable walking distance of the hotel.
Getting around Philadelphia
When the time comes to travel in and around Philadelphia, taxis are available 24 hours a day, but cycling is another option for you. Philadelphia is among the best places to ride a bike because it is so bike-friendly. There are more than 440 miles of bike-only lanes, and you can easily rent bikes at 140 stations across the city. Simply jump off the SEPTA train and hire a bike to get you where you need to go. Tickets for a SEPTA day pass cost around $2.50. The subway trains will operate on a 24-hour basis while the other modes of transport will vary slightly with, on average, a 15-minute wait for the next bus, train, or trolley to arrive at their stop.
If you do hire a car, then these are the nearest car rentals to the airport:

Philadelphia is packed with things to do and see, ensuring there’s something for everyone to enjoy. For history buffs, there’s the Liberty Bell. For movie buffs, there’s the “Rocky Steps.” For those that want to sample local delights, look no further than Philly cheesesteaks.
Outdoor Activities and Attractions in Philadelphia
The museums might grab the headlines, but Philadelphia is also home to numerous parks and other outdoor spots. Here are our recommendations:
- Philadelphia Zoo: Known as the United States’ first true zoo, the charming Philly Zoo is home to almost 1,300 animals, exciting exhibits, and much more to entice visitors of all ages.
- Spruce Street Harbor Park: Positioned on the Delaware River Waterfront, this park exudes coolness. It features everything from eye-catching floating gardens to colorful hammocks.
- Schuylkill River Trail: While it’s technically not just Philadelphia that benefits from this attraction, the Schuylkill River Trail – a multi-use path that currently extends 30 miles – is worth a mention. Meandering along Schuylkill River, there’s no better trail to go for a walk, jog, or bike ride in Philly.
- LOVE Park: This attraction is famous for hosting one of Philadelphia’s most iconic monuments: the LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana. Once you’ve got your snap of this artwork, take the time to enjoy this small yet charming park.
Culture and Entertainment in Philadelphia
A haven of history and culture, Philadelphia is the place if you love a museum or two. Yet there are loads of other attractions for those seeking a more exhilarating experience:
- Philadelphia Museum of Art: The exterior area was made famous thanks to Rocky Balboa. Yet after you’ve bust a gut running up the “Rocky Steps,” make sure you take the time to savor the exhibits found in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
- Independence Hall: There are many historical sites in Philadelphia, but the highlight is arguably Independence Hall. Learn more about the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution as you stand in the room where both documents were signed.
- The Met Philadelphia: A recently renovated opera house, the 3,500-seater Met Philadelphia is the place to catch a live music or comedy show in Philly.
