Level 2: Basic Botulinum Toxin: Aesthetic Upper Face & Pain
June 26 @ 8:00 am - June 27 @ 5:00 pm
[Multiple dates event] Level 2 includes an online component (8hrs), plus a two-day hands-on session always held in Vancouver, BC.
The online portion of Level 2 includes the following six sections:
The online portion of the Level 2 Course reviews the Glabella (in between the eyes), Frontalis (forehead lines) and Crows Feet (beside the eyes) allows practitioners to develop a deep understanding of what botulinum toxin is, how and why it affects facial muscles, as well as how to direct botulinum toxin to purposely achieve aesthetic facial improvements in the upper face. Practitioners will also learn how botulinum toxin is used therapeutically to treat parafunctional habits, TMD, temporal headaches, migraines and oromandibular dystonias. We will address the topic of prevention/interception and review the musculature of the face and neck. Analysis of muscle recruitment will assist us in determining the cause of the many wrinkle presentations and expressions. A review of the aging process will determine the exact location of placement and number of units of botulinum toxin. The analysis and differential diagnosis of parafunctional habits, TMD and headache will utilize EMG duotrodes.
DAY 1 – INTEGRATIVE CADAVER LAB (FRIDAY)
Practitioners will attend an anatomical and functional cadaver integration. Dr. Roberts provides an in-depth review of anatomy and relates surfaces features with underlying musculature and bones in this hands-on cadaver lab. Understanding the source, pathways and overlap of the cranial nerves provides the foundation for understanding myofascial pain. The synergy of facial and therapeutic botulinum toxin provides you with a new invaluable myofascial pain treatment modality. As Dr. Roberts reviews muscles on the cadaver, practitioners will practice marking each other. This integrative portion of the cadaver lab develops confidence prior to the clinical hands-on. The day is completed with a live model demonstration where Dr. Roberts will perform the PTIFA Anatomic Landmark Template, the PTIFA Therapeutic & Cosmetic Injection Templates & Techniques on a live model.
DAY 2 – CLINICAL HANDS-ON (SATURDAY)
Day 2 is an intensive clinical hands-on practicum where you will have the opportunity to inject 10+ patients using the PTIFA Anatomic Landmark Template, the PTIFA Therapeutic & Cosmetic Injection Templates & Techniques. You will have the opportunity to see how a patient is treated from the moment they walk into the clinic, how the necessary medical history and consents are collected on the FACETEC software, what photography is required and how it is stored on FACETEC, the consultation process, treatment (including markings & injection), how the patient is billed, as well as booking the patient’s post-op appointment. Our goal is to provide you with extensive hands-on experience so that you are confident leaving and going back to treat patients within your own practice. Team Members registered for the Level 2 – Team Training course assist practitioners in clinic – receiving one-on-one hands-on photography, reconstitution, loading of the syringe instruction, and more.
