About Our Academy
Scottsdale’s premier med spa is excited to offer one-on-one aesthetician training in Scottsdale at our Inside Out Aesthetics Academy!
We offer advanced education opportunities to those who are passionate about entering the aesthetics industry. Come experience our 2-day comprehensive training on cosmetic injections, including Botox and/or filler. We will offer you opportunities to put your knowledge to use and practice on patients. Upon completion, you will have gained the skills to safely and confidently begin your career as an aesthetics injector.
Why IOA Academy?
IOA Academy was created by Terri Mazaheri to share her expertise, experiences and passion of being an injector for 20+ years. Our training programs and courses are uniquely designed to provide you with not only the injecting and safety fundamentals in an intimate setting, but also give you the tools as you progress in your career, while providing you with access to experts in the aesthetics field.
Individual Training Courses
We have Botox and Filler Training programs, which are separate courses consisting of two days each, where you must complete the Botox training course first. Terri believes the only way you learn and get more comfortable is by having the opportunity to have hands-on practice, so after the Botox training course, you have the opportunity to be part of our Botox Clinic. The Botox Clinic (approximately 2-3 dates available per month) is where you can obtain even more hands-on experience at no additional cost to you. We want to ensure you can master the basics before you begin to learn Filler (focusing on lips and cheeks), as it will come much easier and most importantly, safer. The Botox course is $2,899 and the Filler course is $5,899. If registering for both courses at once, the price is reduced to $8,000.
We have launched a condensed two-day course for Botox and Filler training where the first day is focused on Botox, and the second is Filler. This program is best for those who enjoy a fast-paced environment and learn quickly. The cost of the Accelerated Program is $6,000.
Continuing Education Opportunities
Advanced Filler Course – During this advanced one-day course, students will have the opportunity to learn more advanced treatments using cannulas and specialized treatments for the following areas: temporal, nasolabial folds, chin, and jaw. This course is offered to IOA graduates and non-graduates with approved prior training. The cost of the Advanced Filler course is $2,500.
One-on-one shadowing and mentorship days (6 hours) available upon request, where the injector will be observing only during their shadowing. The cost to shadow is $1,000.
In this training, you can expect:
- Anatomy and physiology lab
- Dilution and injection techniques from Terri, additional Master Nurse Injectors, and a board-certified plastic surgeon
- Business planning and preparation
- Hands-on training and injecting multiple models
- Knowledge review

What our students are saying.
Thank you so much Terri and Abbey for the Botox and Filler course at IOA! It was truly an amazing experience and I learned so much from both of them. Terri and Abbey are so compassionate and have such amazing talent. I highly recommend taking the course through IOA if your thinking of becoming an injector. I also highly recommend getting any treatments at IOA. Terri has an amazing group of aestheticians at her facility that offer a variety of facials and skin treatments.
AMAZING!! I did the National Laser Institute for my Botox and filler training prior to shadowing at Inside Out for their filler training and wow what a difference. Terri and Abby were so personable and took so much time to create amazing relationships and educate their students as well as all their patients. I am beyond impressed with this office and everyone who works there! It is truly such an amazing environment to be surrounded in. I HIGHLY recommend coming here for all your treatments and facials
Abbey, Terri, and all of Inside Out Aesthetics have been nothing but exceptional. I come all the way from Chicago to see the staff at Inside Out Aesthetics. I recently flew in to take the Academy botox course and it blew me away. I was able to get one on one time, hands on practice and an overall understanding of how this industry works. Having Abbey and Terri both by my side the entire time helped build my confidence, and appreciation for this industry. Special shoutout to Abbey for being the best mentor, friend and educator out there. These past couple of years she has helped me with my skincare needs through products, treatments, and has shared with me so much knowledge. I couldn't imagine what my skin would look like without Inside Out Aesthetics.I highly recommend taking the botox course, and/or going to see the staff at Inside Out for your skincare needs!
