Botulinum Toxin Courses

Botulinum toxin is our most popular treatment at Cosmedic Skin Clinic and the number of people having this procedure each year continues to grow meaning this is the perfect business opportunity for qualified practitioners. Botulinum toxin is the ideal treatment to smooth any lines or wrinkles of expression that are caused by facial muscles and the most popular areas that are treated are the periocular rhytids (crow’s feet), glabellar complex (frown lines) and horizontal forehead lines. These indications are all covered on our botulinum toxin foundation course.

Although the vast majority of botulinum toxin treatments performed in aesthetic medicine are for one or more of the three common indications (periocular rhytids, glabellar complex and horizontal forehead lines), it can also be used for treating several other areas of the face and neck. This course is suitable for any practitioner who has become experienced in the basic indications and has been practising for a sufficient amount of time on a sufficient number of patients. It is paramount that the delegate can arrange suitable models for treating on the various indications. The advanced course offers a refresher on the science and evidence behind botulinum toxin as well as specific training in advanced techniques and areas tailored to the delegate’s needs.
