Learn to perform Botox injections and other aesthetic procedures during Empire Medical Training's weekend training programs. For your convenience, we have scheduled the Complete Botox Training, the Dermal Filler and Facial Aesthetics workshops on consecutive days over a weekend. These educational courses are the very basis for every aesthetics practice. Overview: The Botox Training workshop is very complete and all inclusive and created so that you can immediately begin performing these techniques on your own. The general format of the workshop is to receive very detailed lectures in the morning followed by intensive hands on training in the afternoon. The workshop gives you the opportunity to use real Botulinum Toxin products on actual live volunteers. In fact, a good percentage of your tuition is used to purchase these supplies as well as all the medicines you will be using. Attendees are also welcome to bring along a friend or companion if you choose to use them for your injections. (Why not, they are receiving FREE injections. We never charge our volunteers). Workshop Topics: You will learn all the protocols associated with each of the Botulinum Toxin Type A products such as Botox Cosmetic as well as the newer, highly effective Xeomin and Dysport products. To operate a successful aesthetic practice it is important to know about and be able to utilize the different products your patients may ask for. Each will be available and used during the hands on portion of the class so you can decide on your own which Botulinum product will best suit your practice objectives. Comprehensive Training and Certification: This is a certification program intended only for Physicians and qualified health care practitioners. After completion of the course and demonstration of proficiency, you will receive your certification and course certificate. Attendees also have the option to receive their certificate framed in an attractive wood and metal plaque. Empire provides you with everything needed to perform Botox injections safely and correctly in your practice so that you will not only become certified to perform Botox injections, but will also gain a level of confidence working on your own patients.
