🌟 A single observation day is perfect for you if…

  • You possess your LPN/RN/NP/PA/MD/DO in the state of New Hampshire or another Nursing License Compact (NLC) state if applicable. You can check that here. If you do not have your license in New Hampshire, you can apply for a NH license by reciprocity on the state’s website.

📈 Why Aesthetic Medicine?

Making a difference in the lives of our patients is a desire we all share as medical professionals but long hours, inflexible schedules, insufficient compensation, and dealing with …ugh… insurance makes fulfilling that goal all the more difficult in today’s medical environment. Amidst the challenges of traditional healthcare, Medical Aesthetics promises better work-life balance, limitless salary potential, and the joys of patient care while allowing practitioners to build a reputation and business of their own. At DCCM™ Academy, we champion your journey to becoming an independent aesthetic injector, offering comprehensive training without gatekeeping and gimmicks, ensuring your success regardless of your prior experience.

Let’s talk numbers. We know aesthetics training is an investment and we want to show you just how much investing in yourself and your training at DCCM™ Academy can pay off perhaps sooner than you think! If we extrapolate annual gross income for injectors focusing on cosmetic neurotoxin treatments, we can see that achieving 20 clients per week can yield a gross income exceeding $300,000 annually! This thriving multibillion-dollar industry, driven by an ever increasing demand for aesthetic treatments, presents unparalleled opportunities for new injectors to enter the field. However, this growth comes with new and increasing levels of provider responsibility for malpractice, necessitating that providers continue to further their education and remain aware of the latest developments in the industry. DCCM™ Academy addresses this by providing the highest standard of provider education, constantly updating our course material to help our students become well-equipped to navigate the evolving landscape responsibly.

In Aesthetic Medicine, success is not just about financial gains but also about patient safety and outcomes. The industry’s exponential growth has outpaced safety protocols, necessitating a deeper commitment to education. DCCM™ Academy fills this gap with comprehensive trainings and a dedication to continuing education, empowering our students to exceed their clients’ expectations and forge lasting relationships built on trust all while protecting their community by enforcing the highest standards in patient safety.
