Level 2 - Basic Botulinum Toxin: Cosmetic Upper Face & Pain Management is organized by Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics (PTIFA) and will be held from Jul 26 - 27, 2019 at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 24 Credits. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 1 online (you may register for L1 and L2 at the same time) Conference Description : Level 2 is a comprehensive hands-on botulinum toxin course/certification which introduces practitioners to the cosmetic use of botulinum toxin for the superficial muscles of the upper face (glabella, frontalis, crow’s feet) and the therapeutic use for pain management (migraines, headaches, TMD/bruxism). The course involves an online component, as well a two-day hands-on program in Vancouver, BC. Level 2 also covers the Roberts Facial Rejuvenation Photography series – for improved records and patient care, the PTIFA Cosmetic & Therapeutic Marking Template, the PTIFA Injection Technique, and the PTIFA Injection Rules – to achieve no negative side effects. During this course, a separate training program – Botox and the Influential Team – is run concurrently for auxiliary staff. This part of the program is crucial to successful practice integration and cross trains your team on how to speak to patients about botulinum toxin treatment, how to take the Roberts Facial Rejuvenation Photography series, how to reconstitute & load syringes, billing, marketing, etc. By the end of the course, Practitioners and Team Members will have all of the tools and training necessary to start integrating botulinum toxin into their practice. Course Topics : • Research Articles Supporting Therapy • Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Mechanism of Action • Preparation, Dosage, and Procedure • Practical Pearls Conference Objectives : • Understand how to inject botulinum toxin (aka Botox/Dysport) to achieve predictable cosmetic results in the upper face. • Understand how to inject botulinum toxin (aka Botox/Dysport) to achieve predictable therapeutic results for pain management (migraines/headaches/TMD/bruxism). • Gain extensive hands-on experience integration/clinical applications marking each other after precise anatomical landmark identification on the skull and cadaver. • Develop a deep understanding of how to improve patient care with botulinum toxin – both therapeutically and cosmetically.
