What is Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin (commonly referred to as Botox®), is a neurotoxin that is used to treat lines and wrinkles on the face which are caused by facial movements such as frowning and smiling.


What does a Botox treatment involve?

A very small quantity of Botulinum Toxin is injected directly into the muscles that cause lines using a fine needle. This relaxes the muscle and the skin in the affected area smooths out. Because the muscle is not able to move as much, the treatment also prevents new lines and wrinkles from forming, as well as improving the appearance of existing wrinkles. Results are typically visible 10-14 days after treatment and can last between 3 and 6 months.

Following the presentation, each delegate will be given time to carry out a full medical consultation with their model, to assess their face, ensuring their suitability for the treatment and that they understand any risks or side effects. Delegates will carry out the treatment on their models under the supervision of our educator. As all of our training courses are limited to small groups, the practical session allows all delegates to observe a wide range of treatment indications and techniques, with ample opportunity for questions, feedback and guidance.

To ensure a structured approach to learning, a maximum of 5 to 6 delegates are permitted on this course enabling you to draw upon expert knowledge of anatomy and treatment options for the face.  You will have the opportunity to learn by demonstration, consulting and assessing, along with a hands-on approach with close supervision and support.

Do you offer support with prescriptions for delegates who do not hold a prescribing qualification?

If you are not a Prescriber , we will, where possible, try to put you in touch with a doctor or nurse in your area who can offer a face to face prescribing service for your patients, however, it is the delegates responsibility to arrange all consultations with the prescriber.
