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.

Trial Is Studying Whether Botox Can Help Diplegic Children Walk Better

Trial Is Studying Whether Botox Can Help Diplegic Children Walk Better

Botulinum toxin A injections could help diplegic children walk better, and few things are as important to living a productive, independent life as being able to move from one place to another. A new study is working to determine if Botox when combined with ankle weights can improve the gait of children who use ankle and foot braces.

The research project was conducted in 2021 by Nahla Mohamed Ibrahim, a lecturer in physical therapy at Cairo University. Final results have not been published.

The researchers involved 60 children in this controlled trial. A third were treated with classical gait rehabilitation techniques, a third with the same training plus ankle weights and a third with rehabilitation, weights and Botox injections. Testing was done to determine range of motion and other indicators of gait improvement over 3 months. Participants were asked to walk forward, backward and sideways on a balance board, among other things.

What is Diplegia

Diplegia is a form of paralysis associated with cerebral palsy. Other research has shown that Botox injections can help with muscle stiffness and over-activity in people with CP. If these conditions are not treated in some way, deformities of the limbs and spine are possible. While Botox for children with CP is considered safe, infections and other side effects are possible, just as with any injection.

Other conditions that can be treated with Botulinum toxin A injections include teeth clenching, migraine, TMD, bladder overactivity and more.

Dentox’s in person, online and on demand Botox and dermal filler training programs are constantly updated to include the latest information. Instructor Dr. Howard Katz is a longtime researcher in the field of injectables who keeps up with new developments in the industry to share with trainees.

Botox And Filler Banned For Minors In UK, And Some Want Ireland To Be Next

Botox And Filler Banned For Minors In UK, And Some Want Ireland To Be Next

Starting in October 2021, administering Botox or injectable dermal filler to anyone under age 18 for cosmetic purposes is a crime in the United Kingdom, even if an adult gives permission. Some in Ireland believe that nation should be next in banning the procedure to put an end to an out-of-control situation that sometimes results in teens having injectable treatments at home from people with no training.

In the United States, there is no minimum age for Botox and filler injections in many states, but some medical professionals set their own rules.

In Ireland, regulation of Botox is lax, sometimes leading to unskilled, untrained injectors doing procedures at beauty salons or private homes. Many teens have been subjected to injections that may not have been done safely or correctly. Some are calling for regulations to be tightened to improve safety and level the playing field for injectors.

One cosmetic injector said recently in Irish media that the industry is simply out of control. She is among industry leaders in the nation who believe something must be done before there are serious injuries or even deaths that result from untrained injectors not following established procedures and safety protocols.

She admits that Botox for medical reasons can be safely used on those under age 18 and can be very effective for migraines or the jaw condition TMD. It can also be used to prevent excessive sweating when injected into hands or underarms and can sometimes treat other medical conditions, including bladder problems.

Those who choose to follow high standards in their practices and exclude teens from treatments are fed up with laxity. There is no governing body willing to tackle the situation, the cosmetic injector said, so harm continues to be done by people with no training.

For Ireland, it’s the Health Products Regulatory Authority that regulates medicines, including Botox, and it has recorded at least five reports of Botox adverse reactions in the first two-thirds of 2021. Most of these, however, were mild or moderate and included blurred vision, rashes and swelling – all reactions that line up with listed possible side effects of injectables.

Training Is Key

No matter what nation an injector chooses to operate a practice in, training is key to avoiding unanticipated effects and adverse outcomes. Good training includes specifics about injection depths, dosages and angles as well as details on what needles to use, how to manage consent forms and more.

Most U.S. states have restrictions on who can administer injectables, and many require training and certification before a medical professional can work on patients.

Dentox’s injectables training programs include these and other key pieces of information, including how to market new skills for maximum benefit to the practice. All Dentox courses are taught by Dr. Howard Katz, a longtime instructor who has been teaching since the beginning of the industry and who is named on the patent application for Botox and related products because of his research.

Botox For Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesias: Careful Injections May Get Results

Botox For Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesias: Careful Injections May Get Results

An astounding 45 to 85 percent of people with Parkinson’s disease experience dyskinesias – erratic, involuntary and writhing motions of the face, trunk, legs or arms – that aren’t caused by PD but by the medications that treat other symptoms. Botox for dyskinesias is not well-studied, but it can help with some of the symptoms that people with this condition have.

Dyskinesias happen as a side effect of levodopa, and symptoms can often be reduced if medication dosage is reduced. In addition, other medications can be added to partially control the symptoms, but the condition is stubborn and often goes without successful treatment.

More on Botox For Dyskinesias With PD

Research into Botox for dyskinesias has been insufficient, according to experts, to prove that injections can have the desired effect of reducing or eliminating symptoms. Still, Botox has been used successfully in patients with conditions like pain-producing foot dystonia, blepharospasm and JC-OMD, so it makes sense that Botox could help with dyskinesias as well. The key is limiting dosage to prevent muscle weakness and getting the injections into the precise location to do the most good.

Another PD symptom, freezing of gait, is often unresponsive to dopaminergic therapy, but Botox injections have been shown to have some impact on it. Benefit was inconsistent, however. This related muscle disorder is often seen in conjunction with levodopa-induced dyskinesias.

Offer New Solutions… And Hope

Patients with PD experience a range of symptoms, and their lives are better when some symptoms can be controlled. Skillfully injected Botox can help. Train with Dentox to learn medical uses as well as cosmetic uses of injectables – and learn to offer solutions to patients who can’t find them elsewhere.

Botox For Blepharospasm: A Remarkable FDA Approved Solution Since 1989

Botox For Blepharospasm: A Remarkable FDA Approved Solution Since 1989

Botulinum toxin has proven to be a remarkable treatment for a range of movement disorders, including blepharospasm – the uncontrolled blinking, narrowing or closing of one or both eyelids that is considered a type of dystonia. Onabotulinum toxin A, also called by the brand name Botox, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1989 for treating this condition which, until that time, had no effective clinical or surgical treatment.

Initial studies showed that doses of 25 to 50 U were effective for blepharospasm with few side effects. Adverse effects that could happen include blurred vision, ptosis (eyelid drooping), cornea problems and eye dryness. While there is no good randomized and controlled efficacy data to support use of Botox for blepharospasm, studies have shown it to be safe and effective. As many as 90 percent of patients in some studies have seen benefit.

More About Botox For Blepharospasm

Allergan, the makers of Botox, promote Botox for blepharospasm through online content. On a website devoted to the topic, the company points to three studies that show effectiveness, including the one in which 25 of 27 patients – or 90 percent – improved in just 2 days.

Doctors noted in another study that they could more easily hold open the eyelids of patients treated with Botox than before treatment.

Botox treatments block the signals to nerves that cause blepharospasm and usually have to be repeated every 3 months for continued effectiveness. They can be used on patients as young as 12 years old.

Botox For Migraine Offers Lower Cost And Higher Persistence Than Newer CGRP mAbs

Botox For Migraine Offers Lower Cost And Higher Persistence Than Newer CGRP mAbs

A study presented at this year’s American Academy of Neurology Virtual Annual Meeting offered important new data about how much it costs to be treated for migraines with onabotulinumtoxinA – usually called by its widely recognized brand name, Botox – and how likely patients are to return for future treatments.

While it has long been known that Botox provides a significant reduction in the duration, severity and frequency of migraine headaches for many patients, the new research took a look at a year of real-world data and found that patients who got Botox injections for migraines were more likely to return for additional treatment and that patients paid less for migraine treatment overall than they did when turning to newer CGRP mAbs treatments.

Calcitonin gene-related peptide monoclonal antibodies (CGRP mAbs) are a relatively new treatment for migraines that have been considered revolutionary because they are the first preventative medicine for migraines developed specifically for the purpose. All other preventatives were developed for other purposes and later found to be useful for migraines.

The CGRP mAbs treatments involved in the study include Eli Lilly’s Emgality (or galcanezumab), Amgen’s Aimovig (or erenumab) and Teva’s Ajovy (or fremanezumab).

What The Study Found About Botox For Migraine

The analysis of past insurance claims by AbbVie, the parent company of the maker of Botox, looked at nearly 2,700 adult claims on commercial insurance or Medicare for chronic migraine that involved treatment with either Botox or CGRP mAbs. Nearly 41 percent of patients treated with Botox persisted with the treatment while less than 28 percent treated with CGRP mAbs persisted.

The finding was surprising because CGRP mAbs treatments are often considered more convenient and comfortable than Botox since only a single injection is necessary per treatment – an injection that can be done at home.

AbbVie also looked at cost differences between Botox treatments for migraines and CGRP mAbs. After necessary adjustments, the analysis found that treatment costs were similar. Botox treatment, however, resulted in much lower costs for acute migraine medicines – a difference of $639 vs. $883 for the year. Botox treatments also resulted in lower costs of oral preventatives for the patients, at $313 vs. $413. Additional research could later determine specific reasons for the differences, which might include factors involving insurance coverage, tolerability or efficacy.

Hundreds Of Millions In Revenue With Botox For Migraines

Both Botox and CGRP mAbs are intended to be provided as a third-line therapy option for patients with chronic migraines who didn’t get good results from two of the daily preventatives usually prescribed. These include beta-adrenergic receptor blockers, antidepressants, calcium antagonists and anti-epileptics.

AbbVie’s study found that those with migraines are more likely to stick with Botox treatments and spend less per year on preventatives and acute treatment medicines than those who choose CGRP mAbs, which may be more convenient.

Further, Botox has proven through years of use to be well-tolerated by patients and to reduce migraine symptoms when given every 3 months. It can also help with shoulder and neck pain, which may accompany migraines. It is used to treat patients who have at least 15 migraine headaches per month but do not respond to first-line and second-line treatments.

Research has shown that CGRP mAbs treatments given once a month or once every 3 months as recommended by the maker can reduce average monthly migraine days for patients. Still, Botox for migraines is expected to generate more than $268 million in revenue by 2030 in the 7 nations where it is prescribed most.
