Clinical Pearls – Botox & Fillers Training Videos Part 5

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 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.

In the last installation of the blog series, Dr. Katz talked a bit about needles and painless injections. We thought the topic of painless injections deserved its own post (how many of your patients would appreciate anything but?) So, today we’re including painless injections part 2 and 3.

You can do something about pH

Part of what causes the pain in botilinum neurotoxin injections is the acidity of the solution. We’re required to mix the botilinum neurotoxin with saline for injection, and saline has a pH of around 4, which is fairly acidic. So, how do we reduce the acidity of a solution with such specific parameters?

As you will see in a minute, Dr. Katz suggests using bacteriostatic saline, which has a less acidic profile (around a 6). Watch the video, and your future patients will thank you.

It’s been said that the true test of whether you understand a concept fully or not, is if you can explain it to a child. Notice in these videos (and, indeed all the videos in the YouTube hidden gems series) how concisely Dr. Katz renders his tips of the day. As we have mentioned before, our Dentox training courses, online and in-person, offer a full day of learning that features nothing but the best in medical aesthetics knowledge.

Dentox training courses are not sessions in which such above-mentioned concepts are elongated to fill the time; nor are participants subjected to prolonged lectures. Our courses are packed with straightforward learning about the practical strategies and tools for not only succeeding but thriving in this field. We do this by offering only useful and impactful tips, like are presented in Dr. Katz’s videos.

It is with the utmost enthusiasm and confidence that we share this learning, but we digress!

In his next tip of the day, Dr. Katz discusses another tried and true tip about giving painless injections.

Painless injections – part 3

In the last two videos addressing pain and injections / needles, Dr. Katz spoke of the importance of angling your injections proportional to the thickness of muscle in order to avoid hitting bone and also simply to use 30 rather than 32 gauge needles to avoid having to replace the needle with every injection. In this final video on the topic, he adds one more crucial component to the latter tip.

A thicker (30 gauge) needle is logically going to cause more pain, right? The answer is yes, but you can mediate this by selecting needles with the sharpest bevels. It’s much more elegantly explained in the video below, so give it a watch.

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 from Dentox’s YouTube channel!
