Managing Complications

for Aesthetic Practice

If you are offering dermal fillers and botulinum toxins this is the essential course to do. The CTIA's Managing Complications for Aesthetic Practice is an absolute must for anyone who offers soft tissue injectables. Practitioners offering Botulinum Toxins and Dermal Fillers, must have the knowledge and awareness of the signs and symptoms related to complications and be prepared to confidently treat them. 

This online course will provide anyone who respects these treatments and the side effects that they may cause with the knowledge and protocols required not only to distinguish between complications but to understand how they have occurred and what action is required to remedy.  
Additionally, this comprehensive online course provides the learner with a much better understanding of the diagnoses and management of complications if they do occur.
