These services are a natural extension of therapeutic and cosmetic treatments that are already being offered in your dental practice. Many dentists are already using Botulinum Toxin A and Dermal Fillers to treat cosmetic/dental issues.
Today, dentists are becoming more aware of the desired look and are cosmetically savvy due to the high demand for beautiful lips. Dentists work with the lips and the perioral area every day. The lips are the drape to your platform and often times you cannot accomplish it all with dental work.
Harmony and balance of the face exists through a wide range of sizes, shapes and configurations of the individual parts. The practitioner must be able to appreciate this in order to understand the changes the face develops and endures over time. The oral-facial area and the dental field cannot be devided. Dentists need to establish a focus on mutual purpose of the two areas in order to achieve optimal results.
The Art and Science of Botulinum Toxin A (will include Dysport™ and Botox™) and The Art of Dermal Fillers is a 2-day comprehensive hands-on certification program (may be taken individually). Day 1 will explore the applications of Botulinum Toxin A for cosmetic purposes with a focus on the most popular areas requested for treatment. Presentation will include an introduction to history and new developments on the horizon of botulinum toxin A, as well as brief analysis of botulinum toxin B. Significant focus on pertinent facial anatomy and physiology will be presented (the cornerstone to safe and effective treatment). The presentation will include mechanism of action, safety and efficacy issues, management and treatment of complications, dilution guidelines, and comprehensive information on proper injection techniques and placement, for desired outcome. Focus will be on upper face application and an introduction to lower face and dental applications will be presented.
