Advanced botulinum toxin

AK  Training Academy’s Advanced Botulinum Toxin is designed for delegates who have already built up some Botulinum Toxin injecting experience and are keen to move forward with more complex and sophisticated treatments. 

Overview

The course will enable practitioners to offer a fuller portfolio of treatments to clients, including:

  • Gummy Smile  
  • Headaches  
  • Lower face   
  • Hyperhidrosis  
  • Nefertiti lift  
  • Jawline  

Aesthetics clients are increasingly demanding in terms of the results they expect. They are also keen to explore more sophisticated and complex procedures. This course includes the more technically difficult and skilled ‘premium’ procedures.

As with all AK Training Academy courses, the Advanced Botulinum Toxin course provides a carefully constructed combination of theory and practical teaching, with demonstrations plus opportunity to practice new techniques on live models under the guidance and supervision of our trainers.

We recommend a minimum of 6-12 months of frequent aesthetics injecting experience.
