Complete Facial Aesthetic

Medical Grade Hands-On Chemical Peel, Microneedling, and Facial Rejuvenation 1-Day Training

Facial Aesthetic Training - Testimonial

The Complete Facial Aesthetic Training program is a great workshop for physicians, nurses, aestheticians, and other health care professionals interested in having a complete array of facial treatment options for their patients. There are many highly effective, yet simple procedures that, though often overlooked in facial aesthetic in place of the exciting Botox and Filler procedures, can afford you a more complete facial treatment option for your patients. What good is performing a Botox procedure on patients if the surface of their skin is riddled with hyper pigmentation, acne scars, poor texture, tone, and color?

Our course is very complete and detailed, with written protocols for every step in each procedure and includes the opportunity to perform these hands-on procedures. Although not required, most attendees request a procedure for themselves or a spouse before adjourning the course.

The Comprehensive Botox Workshop, Dermal Filler Workshop and Facial Aesthetic Training programs are scheduled on consecutive days for your convenience and to maximize your education in relation to aesthetics. Please click on these programs to learn more.

Facial Aesthetic - Microdermabrasion by
Lorena Cosentino

Medical grade chemical peels are still considered the “gold standard” among Dermatologists due to the effective and controlled results. Chemical peels are an effective treatment for such skin conditions as Solar Lentigos, Age Spots, and other pigmentation of the face, décolleté, and hands. Our Facial Aesthetic Training will teach you the various protocols associated with the different types of acids as well as instruction in performing microdermabrasion (micropeel) including micro needling hands-on training. In addition, physicians will learn about the importance of integrating retail products (cosmeceuticals and growth factors) into their aesthetic practice as a means of benefiting your patients as well as providing an additional monthly revenue stream.

Included in the course will be micro needling training, you will receive complete protocols for micro needling either by needle pen (VistaPen™) including the various serums and growth factor topicals for enhanced results.  This procedure allows for correction of static rhytids, facial rejuvenation, scar revision and collagen remodeling (collagen induction) for damaged skin tissue due to UV damage or other signs of aging.  The hands-on portion of the program training includes the needle pen (VistaPen™) and all sizing charts needed for clearance of:

    • Acne Scarring
    • Linear and Boxcar scars
    • Skin Laxity / UV damage
    • Decollete Rejuvenation
    • Stubborn static wrinkles (rhytids)

Micro needling can be a stand-alone procedure or conjunctive procedure to be used in combination with Botox, Dermal Fillers or Platelet Rich Plasma, and the various medical chemical peels discussed within the course study.  The mechanical results from micro needling compare favorably to ablative laser energy type devices and does not have the same downtime or adverse results.

During the Facial Aesthetics program you will learn the various skin classifications (i.e. Fitzpatrick, Burton Scale) and their importance as it relates to each procedure. Attendees will learn the various protocols associated with AHA-Free Acids, BHA, and caustic acids as well as the complications that can arise from performing these medical grade peels. Different forms of microdermabrasion technologies are also discussed, and attendees will have the ability to perform microdermabrasion during the hands-on sessions of the aesthetic training.

Medical Training

Chemical peels and exfoliation treatments remain the most popular of aesthetic treatments as the skin is still the largest organ in the human body and must be maintained during the aging process. Learn the difference between “day spa” peels and medical grade chemical peels and learn how these treatments can correct a number of skin disorders in addition to rejuvenating the skin, rebuilding collagen, and adding density to your skin. These procedures are sold in packages, but the maintenance of a patient’s skin creates a long-term commitment between a doctor and patient.

After completing the facial aesthetic training seminar, you will have the know-how determine which peel or process would best suit a particular patient. You will also learn about the different classifications of chemical peels, their ingredients, and which peel will best suit each skin type and medical condition.

In addition to this training, you will learn how to explain to your patients the difference between medical grade cosmeceuticals, over the counter skin care products. By adding cosmeceuticals, various growth factor serums, or a prescription skin care product line to your office, creates an additional revenue stream while your clientele benefit from enhanced patient care. Many of these “physician only” skin care product lines are only available to be sold in medical offices by medical professionals.

Microdermabrasion Training

Equivalent to the Comprehensive Botox and Dermal Filler Workshops, the Facial Aesthetic Training is not a demonstration-only course. Attendees will be required to perform the various peels on actual patients as well as perform micro needling procedures. Empire will also provide written material that outlines these processes.
