Introduction to Toxin Course Overview

In addition to comprehensive pre-course online training modules, enjoy a comprehensive 1-day hands-on toxin injectable training course.

This course covers the same material as found in the toxin section of the Dual Toxin and Dermal Filler Course but allows practitioners to integrate the toxin injections first into their practice and then train in dermal fillers at a later date. 

The course will ensure you develop the foundational knowledge and injection experience to begin integrating toxin injections into your everyday practice. During the training, you will learn how to take a full-face treatment approach using both upper and lower-face injection techniques.

Course material covers the latest toxin treatments for overall facial rejuvenation. It also includes a review of the patient consultation and treatment processes as students learn the steps involved in creating successful aesthetic patient results.
