Dual Intro to Toxin and Basic Filler course covers the basics of toxins and dermal fillers to all registered medical practitioners including dentists, general physicians, and nurses. 

Students will have a deeper understanding of the anatomy, the mechanical functions of the facial muscles, and the numerous connections it has to the overlaying cutaneous tissues. 

Other factors that can help achieve the desired outcome will also be discussed such as:

  • Skeletal anatomy and changes to bony structures affecting dermal filler/or toxin injections;
  • Orientation and depth of facial muscles;
  • Facial nerves and vasculature;
  • Tissue layers and their implications in filler injections;
  • Structure and function of the skin;
  • Wound healing, etc.

Understanding the aging process is crucial in attaining the goal of the toxin and/or filler injection. Thus, these topics will also be touched upon:

  • Intrinsic and extrinsic types of aging;
  • Skin classification systems;
  • The role of fat, bones, and muscles in the aging process.

Injectors do not just inject anyone without first conducting patient assessment and consultation. In this section of the course, students will learn the following:

  • Assessment of the upper, middle, and lower face;
  • The process of an effective consultation;
  • Taking a patient’s medical and drug history;
  • Managing patient expectations;
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder;
  • Basic dermatology terms and conditions that impact injectable therapies;
  • Common skin conditions;
  • Legal and ethical considerations.

Students will move from theoretical discussion to watching actual demonstrations performed by our expert trainers. This is followed by hands-on training of students to live patient models.

There are a number of factors involved in achieving optimal aesthetic outcomes from dermal fillers. All those factors will be covered in this section of the course including:

  • Fillers: history, classifications, types, current offerings, mechanism, indications, rheology, etc.;
  • Contraindications including adverse reactions and treatment of adverse events;
  • Pharmacology, crosslinking, and stability of fillers;
  • Anesthesia for injection;
  • Understanding needles and cannulas;
  • Injection techniques;
  • Facial areas and treatment.

The hands-on training for both dermal fillers and neurotoxins has a 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio. This way, students are guaranteed to benefit from an in-depth, comprehensive experience that will teach them how to safely and effectively administer various brands of dermal fillers and neurotoxins.
