Rewarding career options,
for the RN.
As the beauty sector evolved into the technology led industry that it is today, opportunities for cosmetic nurses, midwives, and dentists opened up as well.
Aesthetic or cosmetic nurses have a solid career path, Botulinum & Filler injectables, TCA Facial Peels, PRP Therapy, Micro-Needling and Laser treatments are just some of the tools available. Nurses are in high demand for the entire beauty/aesthetics industry.

Laser & Light
Even though many nurses wish to pursue injectable cosmetics, a well-rounded aesthetics education is paramount to career options and longevity. Starting off with a Diploma in Laser & Light aids in broadening the skillset for multiple treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is not new, used in sports medicine for some years even in aesthetics it has been around for some years. However, it is often underappreciated, with the focus in the industry moving more towards rejuvenation and utilising the bodies natural growth factors, becoming qualified in PRP offers niche skills and employment opportunities.
Skin rejuvenation underpins the entire aesthetic sector. With nurses having the opportunity to extend their skills beyond very superficial peels, it offers unique business and employment options.
Micro-needling has gone from strength to strength and many clinics have forgone laser resurfacing for skin needling. With advancements in medical devices similar to the INNOPen, while also offering the ability combine the treatment with therapies like PRP, for example, makes micro-needling a mainstay therapy in the fight against premature ageing. Moreover, it is also an effective treatment for:
- Acne scarring
- Post-traumatic burns and scar alopecia
- Post-surgical scars
- Stretch Marks
Dermal Fillers & Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Even though some restrictions are in place for nurses and anti-wrinkle injections it should not stop nurses pursuing qualifications in injectables. We have developed a group of courses for injectable cosmetics that offer options for nurses, doctors, and dentists. It is possible for nurses to become Level 7 qualified, the most sought-after qualification in injectables. However, we have also developed a course suiting Irish nurses not looking at practising outside the country. We have the full Level 7 Qualification, and we also have courses based on the Level 7 curriculum that facilitates a high level of practical and theoretical knowledge. It was our goal to provide the highest level of education for injectables, and with our new course structure, we are confident we have achieved that goal.
Dermal Science is an emerging tenet of study in the aesthetics sector once only the realm of dermatologists and doctor-led fields. Comprehensive units covering the theoretical principles and the practical knowledge of dermal therapy procedures to form a strong foundation for clinical excellence. Educators take an evidence-based approach covering the principles of clinical microdermabrasion, chemical peels, injectable therapies, skin needling, laser, intense pulsed light, radiofrequency and other light-based therapies. Our practical hands-on focus allows learners to develop a keen sense of technique while we maintain a strong focus on hygiene and occupational health and safety. With small class structure to support a high-quality learning environment.
Traditional beauty therapy will always have a central place in the industry, however; the sector has changed, ATAI draw a line between the conventional beauty therapy field and the technology-driven clinical practice.
