Clinical Pearls – Botox & Fillers Training Videos Part 1

This blog post is the next installation of a multi-part series of articles exploring the hidden gems of Dentox’s YouTube channel. Each article briefly explores a pair of videos in each of which Dr. Howard Katz’s shares his famous tips and tricks. These are the same tidbits of professional insider knowledge that put Dentox courses at the head of the pack in medical aesthetics education.

The drool

If you’ve read the Dentox YouTube hidden gems blog series before, then you know that a good deal of the hacks Dr. Katz talks about are elegant solutions to common issues. Among issues most professionals encounter over a career in medical facial aesthetics “the drool” is the one that sticks out the most. No one wants to develop drooling after their Botox procedure.

An injection below the nose is what correlates with the drool in some patients. The causative agent, however, is not the Botox or any injectable, but rather a pre-existing condition; Bell’s Palsy.

As usual, Dr. Katz provides a simple solution to wrap this one up, but it might prove disappointing for your future patients. Have a look below.

What is “the bulge”?

A solid overview of facial anatomy is a key component to all of our Dentox training courses. There are good reasons for this, of course, and one relates to the recurring theme of our YouTube hidden gems blog series; balance.

The muscles in the face each naturally push or pull in a manner specific to their function and often the muscles push or pull in opposition to one another. The oppositional forces create a balance like what nature intended. When one muscle is paralyzed by botulinum toxin, it throws a wrench in that system. The inactivity of one muscle causes the activity of other muscles to over represent, causing some of the common problems that providers encounter.

The bulge is just such a problem. A bulge forms when a muscle, such as the masseter, is injected incorrectly. Dr. Katz explains that it’s not only about the location (like with the forehead’s frontalis and corrugator muscles), but the depth of the injection.

Give this a listen for what might be the most important hidden gem of the series.

We’re proud to share our expert knowledge with a wider audience on a platform like YouTube. If you liked this video, you can check out one of our many other “genius minute” and testimonial videos or you can simply check back in here when we share our next hidden gem!
