Cosmetic Procedures - Certification for GP

Recommended Posts

Hello peeps, I'm a 2nd year student and I'm planning to be a GP when I grad. I've recently seen a lot of GP clinics in Ontario offering simple derm. procedures (like laser hair removal, botox, Leg/facial varicose vein treatments), circumcisions or vasectomies. I was wondering If anyone know where I can find more info on how to get certification for those procedures?


ty for your help in advance guys,

There’s no official certification. You hang a sign and call yourself a “skin expert” and that’s all ....and of course manage any complications that come along with it. 

Of note, if cosmetics is the primary thing you want, you could also just become a nurse since it’s all unregulated.
