You have to be a doctor, dentist, or suitably qualified and insured nurse.
I don't know which insurance companies would insure a beauty therapist to do it, and there has been much debate over the sagacity of this anyway.

Spot on lynne. Its also a contraversial area which has been on here before regarding the appropiateness of the doctor or dentist conducting a telephone consultation with the client that a non prescribing nurse is with when the dr or dentist has no idea of what the client looks like!

To administer botox you need to be a prescriber, of which beauty therapists cannot legally become one nor joe bloggs off the street. Nurses who are not prescribers should now not be administering botox either so if you are a salon owner who has a nurse coming in to run clinics and they call doctors so the client can speak to them, that should not be done.
