Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX®) Dermal Fillers and Sclerotherapy

National Laser Institute has been educating health professionals on non-surgical cosmetic procedures ranging from BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers to laser and light based procedures. We are proud to have the reputation as the leading training center in North America. National Laser Institute will be opening new locations across the country.

Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX®) injections are far and away the most popular cosmetic treatment on the market today. Dermal Fillers are the second most common injectable treatment and Sclerotherapy is also a very effective and popular treatment. Over 4 million cosmetic injectable treatments were performed in 2007. Even in tough economic times more people are turning to BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers to help them feel better, look better and pay much less than surgical face lifts. In the third quarter of 2008 BOTOX® sales rose 13%!!

The course covers both clinical considerations as well as important cosmetic issues that enhance communication between the provider and the client. This course will also inform the participant on how to build a practice and capitalize on the enormous market that now exists in the United States for Botulinum Toxin Type A (BOTOX®), Fillers and Sclerotherapy and how providers are discovering their niches. Below is a list of the course objectives as well as sample agenda for the day. Please feel free to contact us with your questions.
