How A Botox Training Program Gives Doctors a Hands on Approach to Learning Botox Injections


Visitors: 353

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections are a highly lucrative addition to any doctor's practice. With that, Botox training is becoming more and more popular. What separates one Botox training program from the other courses out there is a particular course's willingness to go over, in great detail, several of the advanced Botulinum Toxin (Botox) techniques.

Some of the lessons you will learn during a Botox Training course are:

• The locations of Botox injections for the upper and lower face
• The storage and shelf life of Botox
• Medical protocols
• Business and marketing techniques are included in the training so a doctor can learn how to get the word out about the doctor's new specialty.

Most Botox training programs are not only extremely informative, but very hands-on. Doctors attending the training actually get to practice Botox injections on actual patients. Doctors can even bring in their own patient for the training. Bringing in their own patient gives the doctor the ability of being able to keep track of their patient's progress after the test injections.

Doctors will be also be working with both Xeomin and Dysport so that the doctor can come to a decision on which product they believe will be a better fit for their practice. You will also be working closely with board certified plastic surgeons who are can add their own personal experiences in working with Botox to the training.

Doctors will predominately be learning about cosmetic applications during the Botox training, but the training will also teach some of the practical medical uses for Botox as well. Some of the medical uses of Botox include these treatments which have been approved by the FDA:

• Achalasia (failure of the lower oesophageal sphincter to relax)
• Cervical dystonia (a neuromuscular disorder involving the head and neck)
• Chronic Migraines
• Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
• Strabismus (Squints)

Other conditions that doctors can learn how to treat during the training that haven't been approved by the FDA as of yet:

• Anal fissure
• Pediatric incontinence
• Diabetic neuropathy
• Excessive salivation
• Focal dystonias affecting the limbs, face, jaw, or vocal cords
• Movement disorders associated with diseases of the CNS and brain injury including stroke, MS, Parkinson's, and cerebral palsy
• TMJ pain disorders

Most training programs will provide each student with all of the supplies needed to complete the Botox training course, including the Botox injections. The instructors usually work very hard to provide doctors with the best Botox training program available.
