Basic Filler Training

Basic filler training will concentrate on the importance of patient consultation, setting client expectations, and explaining risks and contraindications. This portion of the course will also teach you proper injection techniques, from bolus to cross-hatching, and treatment processes that include the latest dermal fillers for cheeks, chin, jawlines, lip augmentation, melomental lines, smoothing lines, contouring, and overall rejuvenation of the face.

Toxin Injection Training

Injecting neurotoxins begins with an understanding of the different formulations, and reconstitution coupled with an in-depth understanding of the anatomy and appropriate dosing to achieve natural, subtle results. Toxin injection training covers all of the above, along with the practical hands-on injection aspect of the course. This includes a demonstration of injections on the upper and lower face followed by hands-on trainee injecting to treat frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet, brow lift, platysmal neck bands, chin dimpling as well as other lower face indications.
