Continuing Medical Aesthetic Education

Training for  HA Dermal Fillers & Botulinum Toxin

 

“We must thank you for coming so far to help us acquire these new skills. What a honor to have you as a expert and teacher to help make us comfortable in treating our patients and to learn the skills.

My experience was far beyond than what I expected! I really felt comfortable, walking out of the course and start to treat my patients. Which I personally think is the most important. To treat the patients with confidence and knowing what to do. This is really a way of extending everybody’s artistic gifts of “making beautiful people, more beautiful”.

At first I was really worried about the fact of knowing so little of aesthetics. The relaxed environment and your approach of involving everybody personally make it so easy to just enjoy it and at the same time learn so much! You totally changed my outlook on aesthetics.

It was a honor to be able to attend your courses.” NW
