Botox Injection Training composite

You want to increase your clientele, but your resources are limited, your time especially so. Adding new services in order to acquire new patients usually involves a significant investment in equipment and training. We understand and we want to help. This year, according to Google, more than 246,000 searches are done for information on Botox every month. Botox typically isn’t covered by insurance, so individuals seeking Botox Injections have the disposable income to pay for it. No anti-aging treatment offers results as quickly or as long lasting as Botox. This is why Botox is the most widely sought after anti-aging treatment in the United States.

botox injection training certificateOur Botox training doesn’t stop at teaching you how to administer Botox injection, we also teach you how to explain the benefits of treatment to your prospective patient and how to turn your patients into huge fans that will recommend you to everyone they know.New injectable products are being approved all the time, and injectable products are consistently being approved for new uses. This is why is it so important to make certain you find a course that teaches the most current FDA approved as well as off-label treatments for both aesthetic and therapeutic uses and how they should be used with dermal fillers. Many Botox injection training courses will get you qualified, but our course will offer you added credibility. Course director Dr. Howard Katz is named on the patents for all current Botulinum toxin products. The course is offered online, but on successful completion, you will receive a certificate of completion from Dr. Katz himself.

interactive botox training materialsYou’re probably wondering how in the world you can learn to administer Botox injection over the internet.  Prior to the course, you will receive a kit that includes a foam head along with all of the needles and syringes needed.  Throughout the course, the instructor will demonstrate each treatment, showing the placement, angle and depth from multiple angles.  You will inject the foam head in the same manner and submit photos of each.  We will assess the location, angle, depth and dose of each and either verify the accuracy of your technique or coach you on how to improve.  Once you have correctly demonstrated accurate technique for all treatments, we will send your certificate.

botox training on laptopDuring the course, you will watch the class in high definition from a computer, tablet or smartphone and you’ll be able to talk to the instructor just as you would if you were right there in the classroom.  You don’t have to be a computer expert to attend.  If you can send an email or surf the internet, you’ll have no trouble.  When you sign up, you’ll receive an email with a link to the class.  As you watch the class, type any questions you may have into the chat box.  Use the camera on your computer, or any other digital camera to take pictures of your technique and upload them.

Maybe you’re still skeptical.  One notable advantage to taking a course online is that you still have access to all of the recorded lectures and other course material anytime, day or night.  Missed something?  Still not quite clear on something?  Just got lost at some point and don’t feel as comfortable as you’d like with the procedure?  Not a problem.  Go back and rewatch the class as much as you want whenever you want.  Of course, there’s also the fact that you don’t have travel costs or time away from the office and online Botox injection training becomes rather attractive.

Botox For Palatal Myoclonus Or Tremor: Small Doses May Do The Trick

Botox For Palatal Myoclonus Or Tremor: Small Doses May Do The Trick

Palatal myoclonus is a rhythmic jerk of the soft palate that can cause an annoying clicking sound in the ears as the Eustachian tubes open and close. Now classified as a tremor rather than myoclonus because of its electrophysiology, this condition is most commonly caused by nerve damage that results from stroke, multiple sclerosis or even a tumor. It can develop a year or more after a stroke.

Research has found that this is among the involuntary movement types that can be successfully treated with Onabot-A, usually called by the brand name Botox. In the case of Botox for palatal myoclonus, very small doses may be all that are necessary to control symptoms for months.

More About Botox for Palatal Myoclonus

Treating with Botox for palatal myoclonus usually requires EMG guidance. Injections are placed into the soft palate in small doses at specific locations. Injections placed in the tensor-veli-palatini muscle at about 2.5 U usually work for the clicking sound while a similar dosage on each side of the uvula into the levator-veli-palatini muscle can control the movement of the palate.

There is a low risk of swallowing problems following treatment with Botox for this condition, but the risk can be minimized by first injecting a low dosage and increasing it gradually if necessary in future visits. It is important to note that in some cases the injections won’t work at all, and this is often because the palatal myoclonus has a psychological origin and should be treated with psychotherapy.

Improve Patient Lives… And Your Practice

When you’re trained in therapeutic uses of Botox, you can improve patient lives by helping them resolve stubborn and uncomfortable muscle conditions while enhancing the bottom line of your practice.

Fine Line Injections? You Have A Range Of Injectable Treatment Options

Fine Line Injections? You Have A Range Of Injectable Treatment Options

Cosmetic procedures can’t turn back the clock, of course, but they can make us look like we haven’t ridden around the sun quite so many times.

Many of us can age more gracefully with the help of fine line injections. There are many options on the market, and they don’t all work the same way. While you could try dermal fillers or perhaps laser skin tightening, let’s focus on neuromodulators for a moment – those wrinkle-reducing shots that relax away lines. While Botox is both the most common neuromodulator and sometimes a blanket term used for all botulinum toxin A neurotoxins, there are four on the market today:

Botox

The grandfather of all neuromodulators and the first on the market, Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002. Even patients who get other brands often say they’ve had “Botox treatments.” Injectors trained before 2009 were trained only on Botox. The FDA approved it for use on the lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet, but it is widely used for other kinds of wrinkle and fine line injections. It can also be used medically for TMJ clenching and pain, sweating, muscle tension in the shoulders and neck, migraines and more. For cosmetic purposes, results happen subtly within a day or two and improve for up to a week or longer. Results last an average of 3 to 4 months, but this varies widely.

Dysport

Dysport has been gaining patient recognition in recent years and is sometimes asked for by name. Dysport has FDA approval only for the glabella lines of the forehead, but it is used off-label for other cosmetic purposes. Some medical professionals report that Dysport diffuses – or spreads – more than other products so it can cover a large area better than Botox. This spreading can cause side effects if used incorrectly. As with Botox, results last 3 to 4 months or more, but they start to become visible more quickly, some doctors observe. Each unit generally costs less than Botox because the product is more diluted, but more units may be required, making overall treatment cost comparable.

Xeomin

Xeomin is a type of botulinum toxin A injectable that varies from the others in an important way: It contains only the toxin and nothing else. The others contain protective proteins and additives. Because there are no additional proteins, the product may be less likely to cause an allergic reaction, especially in those with autoimmune disorders. Xeomin is only FDA approved for frown lines but is used by injectors in much the same way as Botox and Dysport. It can also help with twitching eyelids, neck muscle spasms and other muscular irregularities. Maximum benefit is visible at around 30 days. Some medical professionals say that it wears off quicker than Botox or Dysport while pricing is similar.

Jeuveau

Approved for cosmetic use in 2019, Jeuveau is intended for frown lines but used for other purposes including fine line injections as well. The brand is a bit less expensive and targets millennials. Whether it can take over a significant share of the market isn’t yet known, but it seems to have similar effectiveness and duration to the other products while costing a bit less. Millennials tend to be early adopters in general, according to experts, meaning that the product should catch on quickly if it catches on at all.

A well-trained injector can make sure a patient is a good candidate for neurotoxin injections and help the patients decide which product or products is right for their needs. Dentox trains doctors, dentists, nurses and others to inject neuromodulators and dermal fillers. Each hands-on class is led by company founder Dr. Howard Katz, the leader in injectables training. Classes are available in person, live online and on demand.

Urinary Incontinence Is More Common Than You Think, And Botox Is Among Proven Solutions

Urinary Incontinence Is More Common Than You Think, And Botox Is Among Proven Solutions

Urinary incontinence is the most common bladder control problem, according to the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. This lack of bladder control can seriously impact life by causing disruptions to the normal course of activities, embarrassment, impact to social relationships and decreased ability to work for a living. But Botox and other solutions can help.

Incontinence should not be considered a disease, however, and instead be looked at as a symptom of a larger issue, according to experts. Underlying causes can include aging, general poor health, being overweight, smoking and diseases including MS.  Prostate problems can cause incontinence in men. Women can experience incontinence because of pregnancy, childbirth and menopause, all things that weaken the muscles of the pelvic floor. It can also be a side effect of radiation treatments.

The precise number of people who experience urinary incontinence isn’t known since many cases are not reported, but some organizations believe at least 10 percent of the population has the problem. Others believe the number is much higher.

Understanding Incontinence Better

There are several types of incontinence, and the treatments vary depending on the cause and symptoms. Among the types are:

  • Urge incontinence, the intense need to go to the bathroom immediately. This can be caused by an infection, diabetes or a neurological disorder. This type responds well to Botox treatment because it involves sudden tensing of bladder muscles in many cases, which Botox injections can lessen or eliminate.
  • Stress incontinence, caused by weak pelvic floor muscles and occurring when laughing, sneezing, exercising, lifting or having sex.
  • Overflow incontinence, the failing of the bladder to empty fully so that small amounts drip over time.
  • Mixed incontinence, a combination of two or more types.
  • Total incontinence, when the sphincter muscle no longer works and urine flow cannot be controlled at all.
  • Functional incontinence, a rare condition that happens when arthritis, cognitive decline or other conditions cause someone with normal bladder control to be unable to get to a bathroom when needed.

While the primary symptom of incontinence of any kind is leakage of urine, the condition can also be caused by a urinary tract infection, which may have the following systems:

  • Pain during urination
  • Pink, red or dark urine
  • Urine odor
  • Back or abdominal pain
  • Frequent urination
  • And more.

Treating Incontinence

A doctor can determine the cause of a patient’s incontinence and create a treatment plan based on a physical exam and review of history and symptoms. Tests may be conducted as well. Some cases clear up on their own over time.

Experts point to a wider range of treatment choices than ever before. In many cases, a doctor will suggest lifestyle changes, bladder control training and pelvic floor exercises. If these things don’t work, medication might do the trick. There are also medical devices, biofeedback treatments and surgical procedures that may help.

Many patients are surprised when their physician recommends Botox for incontinence or overactive bladder. When Botox is used for bladder control, the treatment is injected at a clinic or medical office, and most patients have few or no side effects.

The injections don’t cause any pain, but there can be some brief discomfort similar to cramping. Most patients get improvement in their symptoms in only a few days, and the results can last up to 6 months. Urine retention can happen, so the procedure is not recommended for men with enlarged prostates.

If you’re a medical professional interested in exploring this use for Botox and many others, consider attending a Botox and dermal filler training seminar from Dentox, the leader in single day, in-person injectables training. Online and on demand training is also available. Register for a seminar near you or reach out for more information.

Botox For Rest Tremor: Another Alternative For This Parkinson’s Symptom

Rest tremor is a Parkinson’s disease (PD) symptom that happens when muscles of the hands, arms or legs are relaxed. In many cases, the fingers or hands are the only parts of the body impacted. The condition is associated with altered activity in two brain circuits: the basal ganglia, which are impacted by the depleted dopamine levels associated with PD, and the cerebello-thalamo-cortical circuit.

Botox for rest tremor is an alternative to medications that may or may not work. This condition is a stubborn sign of PD that often doesn’t respond to treatment, so patients may have to try more than one approach to see symptom reduction.

More About Botox For Rest Tremor In PD

The standard for treating rest tremors is levodopa, a medication that is converted in the body to dopamine to reduce PD symptoms. The effectiveness of Botox for rest tremor isn’t well-proven by published data, but a few studies have suggested that injections of Onabot-A, sold under the name Botox, or Incobot-A, a similar product sold under the name Xeomin, can help.

The method of treating with Botox for resting hand and arm tremors involves injecting the product into the forearm muscles. Finger and hand weakness with this treatment is common, however. Improvement may only be modest and may not be good enough to tolerate the weakness in some cases. A study of 34 patients indicated that Xeomin for rest tremor may provide the greatest symptom relief with the lowest level of unintended consequences.

Offer Patients More Hope

Rest tremors are among the most obvious symptoms of PD and often occur early in the disease’s progress. When you train at Dentox, you learn about both medical and cosmetic uses of Botox to help patients get the results they need.

Will At-Home Conotoxin Products Replace Botox Injections

Will At-Home Conotoxin Products Replace Botox Injections

Conotoxins – or cone snail venom products, as they are also called – are starting to get attention as a potential at-home replacements for Botox. But can these creams and serums really have the same impact as professionally injected Botox shots? We’re skeptical. Still, conotoxins are a development in the aethestics industry that bears watching.

American consumers are willing to go to extremes to fight wrinkles and have younger, more toned skin. But what about snail venom? If a product exists that can mimic the positive impact of Botox but can be used at home with no medical or aesthetics office visit necessary, it could be a game-changer. So far, however, conotoxin products haven’t taken the world by storm – and consumers aren’t exactly clamoring to get them.

What Are Conotoxins?

Some are calling conotoxins the secret Botox alternative because many people haven’t heard about them yet. Also referred to as MU-conotoxin, conopeptide or snail venom, conotoxins are synthetic compounds that mimic the effects of the venom from a specific type of snail to relax facial muscles. The result is an instant but temporary smoothing of lines and wrinkles.

Snails are not harvested to make products that contain conotoxins, so no creatures are harmed and there’s no negative environmental impact to the southwestern shores of Australia, where cone snails are native and use their venom to paralyze enemies so they can consume them.

How Do Conotoxins Work?

Conotoxins relax away expression lines and wrinkles. A neuropeptide found in natural cone snail venom as well as the lab-created synthetic product blocks NAV1 receptors on nerve endings and therefore inhibits muscle contraction. The structures under the skin relax, making the face look less wrinkled and more youthful. Just 2 hours after topical application, wrinkles are visibly reduced, according to promoters of the limited clinical research that’s been done.

What Are The Benefits Of Cone Snail Venom?

Those who purchase over-the-counter synthetic cone snail venom products may get quick reduction in the look of deep wrinkles, crow’s feet and other lines. A 2-week study conducted by AMA Laboratories found that women who used one such product got a 64 percent reduction in visible wrinkles. Some got a reduction of 90 percent or more. That’s better than many other topical creams, and it’s better than results from 6 months of treating facial skin with retinol, according to some experts.

But it isn’t better than Botox, which can provide a dramatic reduction in wrinkles that lasts for weeks or months from just one in-office treatment. Botox is also specifically targeted by experienced injectors to the sites that can do the most good rather than used at home by someone who may not be trained in how to get the most from the product. When combined with dermal fillers to reduce the creases left by deep, longstanding wrinkles, Botox results can be even more remarkable.

Not much is known about the long-term benefits of conotoxins or potential cumulative side effects. There are no proven long-term benefits, however it may work to train muscles over time to relax. This benefit is also possible with repeated use of Botox.

So what should a patient with facial wrinkles and lines do? The best bet is the aesthetic treatment proven through years of research and used by millions of patients. To reduce the signs of aging, turn to Botox.
