Botulinum toxin (Xeomin© , Botox Cosmetic©
and Dysport©
) Training

Through this advanced training, practitioners will understand how to decide on and perform any injectable procedure for your patient, going beyond just offering the basic HA products for naso-labial Folds, lip augmentation, and marionette lines. As you start to offer Aesthetics in your office, patients will ask for more and in order to expand your practice, you will need to master these additional techniques. For example, learning how to restore volume and dramatically enhance the contour and appearance of your aging patient is essentially the focus of these course. Using products like Radiesse© in the upper, lateral zygomatic area is a more effective method for treating the unwanted appearance of deep naso-labial folds, yet most aesthetic practitioners will focus only on injecting the naso-labial fold directly. The reason for this is their lack of training and experience. This course is intended to help you develop a thriving aesthetic practice by helping you learn all the necessary procedures and skills to provide your patients.

In addition, training will provided to learn how to correctly perform "tear trough" fillers under the eyes with Restylane© , as well as the newer HA products as well,  and the "11" wrinkle lines that develop between the eyes. Understand how Radiesse©, as well as other highly viscous products, can treat naso-labial folds with an advanced technique of injecting around the lateral zygomatic arch and peri-orbital bone.  Though these longer-term fillers are non-permanent they still offer patients results that can last four times longer than shorter duration fillers.

With our advanced course, you will learn techniques to inject the mid level face and understand how to perform a non surgical face lift which is a technique in high demand. Empire Medical Training has developed a proprietary method for performing the non surgical face lift which you will learn in addition to the other advanced techniques for performing this procedure.
