Is a certified plastic surgical nurse a title that would be beneficial to qualifying someone to inject with fillers and botox?
Certified plastic nursing title does not exist
Experience is important and nurse injectors are very valuable team players in many offices, including mine. The skill and artistry they have can be learned over time and experience is the key for everyone. Make sure whoever is injecting your filler or toxin is skilled and experienced.

It is possible that a nurse can be well trained and do a good job but a physician is more likely to be well trained. If you are paying for an expensive procedure, why would you have it done by a nurse. In addition, if you have a complication or problem you will want a doctor to take care of it so it is best that you establish a relationship with someone that will see you all the way through.
Physician vs. Nurse Injector
Please interview your potential injector to evaluate his or her experience with fillers and neuromodulators. Ask of his or her poor outcomes or complications. If he or she has never had a complication, your injector does NOT have enough experience.
In my practice, I inject each and every patient. I evaluate every patient. Fortunately, I am referred complications to correct. As a result, I am cautious but able to take care of most any potential complication. I hope you find an injector with whom you feel the ultimate confidence.
Best of luck,
