Facial Expressions in the Upper Face and Pertinent Muscles
Gold Standards in Cosmetic Injectable Botulinum Toxin-A Treatments for the Medical Practitioner
Welcome to Facial Expressions in the Upper Face and Pertinent Muscles. This course is designed for medical professionals of all levels (MDs, DOs, DDS, PAs, NPs, RNs) and medical students who require up-to-date evidence-based knowledge in aesthetic injectable medicine.
Foundational knowledge and experience-driven gold-standards techniques are upmost in becoming masters of your industry. The information in this course will enable you to be confident aesthetic providers by building your foundational knowledge of botulinum toxin and the elements necessary to ensure predictable and consistent results in your patients. In addition to the most up-to-date information, you will gain insights and know-how to satisfy and retain patients/clients.
This training course is unique in that it allows you to learn at your own pace. Once you are enrolled, you will have unlimited access to this library of information. It is designed for working professionals who will return to the information as the need arises with their client and in practice.
All of our courses are specially designed with a focus on defining and improving standards in the practice of aesthetic medicine for individuals who have already undergone practical training. This course is suitable for medical professionals who are actively practicing aesthetic medicine or those new to the field who are seeking to overcome insecurities in injecting. In line with this, this course is for the true aesthetic provider, one who understands the importance of up-to-date evidence-based knowledge.
Every patient that walks through the door is unique, therefore we must not rely on a one-size-fits-all approach when providing injection treatments. The proper treatment protocol for each patient is determined by a series of decisions that you as an injector must make. This course begins to move you from foundational knowledge of Botulinum Toxin toward a deeper understanding of the anatomical structure of the face.
In this course you will:
- Begin to understand the relationship between facial expressions and upper face muscles
- Be able to identify pertinent muscles of the upper face as they relate to Botulinum Toxin treatments
- Begin to develop a deeper understanding of five core facial muscles as they relate to Botulinum Toxin treatments
- Learn common issues that can occur when treating specific muscle areas with Botulinum Toxin
- Develop strong foundational knowledge for more effective patient assessments
Our mission is to help you cultivate the knowledge and abilities needed to make decisions that will lead you to predictable and consistent patient outcomes.
