COURSE DESCRIPTION: Are you ready for an update? Have you already completed a Botox course, but feel you would benefit from a “refresher”? Was your last training over a year ago? Or maybe you completed training and still don’t feel confident? All dedicated practitioners know that updates and reviews are critical. Join us for this comprehensive didactic presentation and bring your knowledge, techniques, and skills up to date.
REQUIRED: To enroll in this refresher course, you should have completed at least 6 hours of a foundational Botox course. This refresher course only covers theory and anatomy and does not include a hands-on treatment component. This is not a certification course.
At the conclusion of this course the attendee should be able to:
• Discuss the mode of action of all current FDA approved neurotoxins
• Estimate dosing ranges for muscles of facial expression and masseter and temporalis
• Describe storage, handling and reconstitution for Botox
