[Online] Level 1: Advanced Anatomy & Intro To Botulinum Toxin & Dermal Filler – Online & Self-Directed Course
March 31 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmCAD $1,695
Level 1 is an online course including the following six sections:
1. INTRODUCTION TO FACIAL AESTHETICS
Learn how to arrive at the proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Botulinum toxin (aka Dysport®/Botox®) is often the first procedure of choice in many facial rejuvenation treatments. However, to ensure ideal treatment results the practitioner must also have knowledge and understanding of how diode lasers, intense pulsed light, fractional lasers, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers and other treatments can be used to treat various conditions. Develop a broad understanding of current popular therapies so that you can assess your patient’s needs and desires, document pre-treatment conditions and properly select the appropriate treatment and treatment sequence.
2. ANATOMY OF THE HEAD & NECK
Botulinum toxin type A (aka Dysport®/Botox®) acts on the terminal nerve axon ending, preventing the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACH) and chemically blocking transmission at the synapse. Developing a detailed understanding of the anatomy of the muscles of the face and neck enables practitioners to select the muscle, or group of muscles, to relax for a specific result. Detailed muscle knowledge and precise marking of these muscles leads to predictable results and minimal side effects.
3. PHOTOGRAPHY & RECORD KEEPING
Documentation of your patient’s pre-existing condition, the exact sites injected and the results of any treatment provided are critical for proper patient care and evaluation as well as medical-legal reasons. Photography and the treatment record form are invaluable tools. Theis taken at each appointment to record the pre-existing conditions and the changes that have occurred following each treatment.
4. OFFICE INTEGRATION
Safe patient treatment and an efficient office delivery of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers requires proper office integration systems to be in place. This section of the course deals with the nitty, gritty details of how to integrate botulinum toxin successfully into a medical or dental office.
5. E-ADVANCED ANATOMY
In-depth knowledge of anatomy is paramount in understanding facial rejuvenation and cosmetic injectable treatments. In this section we will study the muscles of the face, their origins, insertions, innervation, arterial supply, functions, and how they relate to the 3-D tissue planes.
6. E-CADAVER & E-SKULL
Building on tissue planes, we review the soft tissue relationship with the bony structures of the head & neck. A review of the sensory innervation in relationship to these hard and soft tissue structures allows us a better understanding of the sensory input involved in bruxing, grinding, TMD, headache, migraine and myofascial pain. This introduces us to a whole new world of therapeutics and the synergy with cosmetic treatment.
