Botulinum Toxin (commonly referred to as Botox®), is a neurotoxin that is used to treat lines and wrinkles on the face which are caused by facial movements such as frowning and smiling.
A very small quantity of Botulinum Toxin is injected directly into the muscles that cause lines using a fine needle. This relaxes the muscle and the skin in the affected area smooths out. Because the muscle is not able to move as much, the treatment also prevents new lines and wrinkles from forming, as well as improving the appearance of existing wrinkles. Results are typically visible 10-14 days after treatment and can last between 3 and 6 months.
You will be sent pre-course e-learning to study prior to the training. This has been created to provide our learners with substantial knowledge in preparation for their journey into the field of Aesthetics. You will be provided with materials and learning that covers:
Skin & Facial Anatomy
What is Botulinum Toxin
How Botulinum Toxin works
Storage & Dilution
Assessing lines and wrinkles
Patient selection and treatment options
Consultation, Contraindications and Aftercare
Practical Injection Technique & Observation
Various additional resources are provided that go into considerable detail to assist you with your role as an Aesthetic Practitioner.
An interactive presentation covering all aspects of the treatment, a review of your e-learning, a demonstration and a hands on practical session will take place on the day.
Following the presentation, each attendee will be given time to carry out a full medical consultation with their model, to assess their face, ensuring their suitability for the treatment and that they understand any risks or side effects. Attendees will carry out the treatment on their models under the supervision of our educator. As all of our training courses are limited to small groups, the practical session allows all attendees to observe a wide range of treatment indications and techniques, with ample opportunity for questions, feedback and guidance.
To ensure a structured approach to learning, a maximum of 5 to 6 attendees are permitted on this course enabling you to draw upon expert knowledge of anatomy and treatment options for the face. You will have the opportunity to learn by demonstration, consulting and assessing, along with a hands-on approach with close supervision and support.
You will have the option of attending a Supervision Day, should you feel you require extra support whilst injecting.
Once you have introduced the treatment to your clinics, our team will be happy to offer advice and guidance should you have any questions. We can be contacted by phone or email and we pride ourselves on our customer service. Your success is our priority! If you are lacking in confidence following training, let us know and we will invite you back.
