I attended an advanced training with Sonya in November. It was by far the best training I’ve ever attended and the tips and tricks she shared and demonstrated have transformed my business! Plus, Sonya is so open and makes the training fun and high pace. And our patients are so grateful! Thank you for the amazing experience!
The L.A.B. Aesthetic Institute
the L.A.B. Aesthetic Institute offers personal training and development to physician’s, PA’s, NP’s and other Nurse Injectors who are looking to branch into aesthetic injecting or to current aesthetic medical professionals who desire to master their craft, learn new techniques and/or learn how to use products off label.
Individuals and small groups of no more then 1-3 attendees are preferred to ensure optimal hands-on experience for each trainee if we are doing live injections. We also host bigger educational events that are presentation only, so please feel free to choose the experience that is right for you and your level of skill. Educational material will be customized for each training based on their specific neuromodulator and dermal filler background and desire for advancement. The training facility located within the L.A.B. med spa is the ideal host for these private educational events, but on-site office training can be arranged.
Sonya Ellis, MSN, RN, CPSN, CANS is the lead trainer and co-founder of the L.A.B. med spa. She has been a nurse since 2000, she has been in plastic surgery since 2004 and has been injecting since 2007. She is one of only two nurses in the state of Texas not only certified in plastic surgery but also aesthetics. Her account is one of the top 500 in the US with Allergan. She performs around 50K procedures a year and carries a practice of around 3K patients. She injects around 700 syringes of dermal filler per year and around 32,000 units of neuromodulators. She has been training since 2017 for some of the top aesthetic companies such as Allergan, Merz and Prollenium, but her private off label trainings are the most popular by far.
