Use of Botox in Your Practice

A Unique Hands-On Experience

Course Description

This course combines both didactic and practical training in cosmetic applications of Botulinum Toxin. Participants will have the unique experience of learning proper techniques using fresh-frozen cadavers. The cadavers will be prepared to enable participants to see the insertion site and follow the path of insertion in the facial muscles. Participants will review head and neck anatomy, and the physiological mechanisms of how botox relaxes the muscles.  Upon completion of the course, participants will have the knowledge and confidence to offer this lucrative therapy every day in your practice.

Course Schedule:

8:30 a.m. Registration (Continental Breakfast)
