Welcome to the AVI Partnership!

Jacob Sanchez, APRN, CRNA, founder of Get Refreshed and Aesthetic Vision Institute (AVI) and renowned injector/trainer is launching his AVI Channel Partners that promises some very exciting benefits for its members across all disciplines of medicine.

In fact, Sanchez hosts the #1 accredited injectables training course in the U.S. and has trained thousands of injectors with over 20 of them starting their own successful practices in 2021 alone. Through AVI Channel Partners, he references the saying: if you want to get somewhere fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. In addition to the amazing opportunities providers would otherwise not be able to create on their own, AVI offers the following top-notch benefits available to its members


Aligning ourselves with Merz Aesthetics has been the single most successful influential move in our organization.
