Biostimulation to tighten and lift the dermis, soft tissues and supporting fascial structures is a method with objective evidence for improving the appearance aged and/or photodamaged skin. Recognized techniques include the use of bio-stimulatory injectables in conjunction with energy based devices. It is incumbent upon the interested practitioners to understand the basic science, mechanism of action and proven techniques behind the rejuvenating benefits of this unique combination. However, in a post COVID environment the methods and practicalities of delivering the treatment have to be reconsidered in order to comply with best practices. There is a large need by nearly all providers for standardizing protocols for performing elective and cosmetic procedures in light of the recent COVID event. This CME educational event will discuss the details and theories behind bio-stimulation of dermal and subdermal structures as well as the most up to date protocols for performing the treatment with the least amount of infectious exposure to the patient, the provider and the staff.
Biostimulation to tighten and lift the dermis, soft tissues and supporting fascial structures is a method with objective evidence for improving the appearance aged and/or photodamaged skin. Hyaluronic acid based fillers to provide structural support and restore volume seen with bony resorption and fat repositioning in combination with neuromodulators to relax muscle tone to allow for facial reshaping is also common practice. It is incumbent upon the interested practitioners to understand the basic science, mechanism of action and proven techniques behind the rejuvenating benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers, biostimulators and neuromodulators, and when to combine them to achieve optimal outcomes. However, in a post COVID environment the methods and practicalities of delivering the treatment have to be reconsidered in order to comply with best practices. There is a large need by nearly all providers for standardizing protocols for performing elective and cosmetic procedures in light of the recent COVID event. This CME educational event will discuss the details and theories behind bio-stimulation of dermal and subdermal structures, and how this can complement restoring facial volume with hyaluronic acid based fillers, as well as reshaping the face with neuromodulators. The most up to date protocols for performing the treatment with the least amount of infectious exposure to the patient, the provider and the staff.
Both bony resorption and fat repositioning loss leads to poor support for the superiorly placed mid-cheek and suborbicularis oculi fat leading to prominent nasojugal folds and infraorbital hollows. Tear trough deformities and loss of cheek volume also occur due to widening of the orbital socket, which expands in a superomedial and inferolateral direction.
Restoring youthful appearing eyes requires volume restoration of the temple, cheek and surrounding structures, in combination with neuromodulators to reposition the eyebrow, open the eye aperture and relax the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Improving the appearance of periocular dyschromia, reticular veins and crepy skin, restores a brighter appearing eye. It is incumbent upon the interested practitioners to understand when and how to combine hyaluronic acid fillers, neuromodulators and energy based devices to achieve optimal outcomes. This CME educational event will cover the most up to date protocols for performing periocular treatments safely and effectively.
In a maturing patient, the lips and perioral areas lose volume, fullness and length during the aging process. Collagen and elastin are diminished, and bone is resorbed. Clinically fine radial lip lines, thinning and elongation of the lips lead to an aged appearance. Fillers, neurotoxins, biostimulators and resurfacing modalities are utilized to replace lost tissue as well to augment areas of atrophy and smooth surface irregularities. Additionally, a younger population is increasingly desiring cosmetically enhanced lips to forge a feminine pout. Fillers and neurotoxins can lift, project and plump the lip. Energy based devices can add in improving the appearance of radial lip lines and lifting the lip. Treatments need to be done with safety in mind first as well as an acute understanding of the anatomy, common aberrations and ideal lip proportions in order to achieve a natural pleasing result. If not done well lip enhancement can be one of the greatest detractors to cosmetic treatments but when done with attention to basic principles of anatomy, muscular physiology and tissue histology highly satisfactory patient reported outcomes are achieved with minimal edema, echymoses and downtime. Additionally, newer protocols recently developed will provide evidence based direction on how to treat safely in a Covid environment using mouth rinses and covering of the mouth prior to and during injections.
The nose as the leading feature is the primary subconsciously recognized determinant of facial symmetry. It has a major influence on the way one feels about their own appearance as well as the first impression one projects. Additionally, it is perhaps the most anatomically intricate area of the face with multiple independent cartilages tightly hinged together by ligaments and supporting soft tissues. Small changes in one part of the nose can lead to significant alterations in a different part of the nose. It is incumbent that the injector knows the ideal ratios and proportions of the nose associated with a natural pleasing appearance for all skin types. Additionally, there is a highly robust blood supply and the nose is the highest risk area in the face for a devastating visual compromise following intravascular filler injections. For these reasons and more detailed and specific training that describes the anatomical layers of the nose as well as basic physiology on breathing will be discussed. In addition, live treatments will demonstrate how to treat the nose safely with soft tissue fillers, neurotoxins and resurfacing devices. Special attention will be placed on the use of cannulas, arterial compression maneuvers as well as nasal rinses to create a safe environment for injecting the nose.
Join us as we tackle the jawline with our good friends and international experts, Dr. Shino Bay(Ft. Lauderdale) & Dr. Andre Braz (Rio de Janiero, Brazil). We promise to deliver a unique way of thinking, identify overlooked critical danger zones and at least 3 never before mentioned techniques on how to reverse the aesthetic appearance of an aging lower face. An ill-defined receded perioral complex melting into an amorphous jawline and chin is the reason the lower third of the face is now one of the most requested areas of treatment. The aging process results in mandibular and maxillary bone resorption, jowl and neck fat descent, platysma and skin laxity. But there are also those born with congenitally challenged chin and jawline architecture as well as abundant submental fat and bulging masseters who desire treatment. Fortunately, newer soft tissue fillers as well as neurotoxins can be used in combination to strengthen and feminize the jawline and fill in the perioral area. Neck fat can be permanently eliminated, and skin lifted non surgically.A scaffolding is set for soft tissue to drape and create an elegant neck- line. Detailed review of the potentially dangerous vascular anatomy as well as tips on how to use the facial ligaments to lift the face will be discussed and demonstrated during live injections. We also will touch on how to treat safely in a Covid environment. Extra attention will be placed how to gently consult with a patient about their neck and jawline appearance. And as always, we ask that you jump on and interact with us, as it allows for meaningful sharing, learning, and insights for all.
During the aging process mandibular and maxillary bone resorbs and fat repositions. The platysma pulls the face downward as it finds resting tone on a mandibular bone that is resorbing. Jowls, and ill-defined jawline, an amorphous chin and full submental region is the result. The lower one third of the face is often a common area patient’s present to address. Neck fat can be permanently eliminated, and skin tightened non surgically. For those with congenital retrognathia or a poorly defined jawline fillers can create a new scaffolding for soft tissue to drape upon and an elegant neckline is revealed.
Similar to the previous session, detailed discussion of bony, soft tissue anatomy as well as a review of the critical vascular anatomy will be discussed empowering the injector to better understand the safe zones of the lower third of the face. Tips on how to combine injectables with energy based devices and when to start with one modality over another will be covered. How to avoid facial arteries and nerves as well as how to use the facial ligaments, fascia and muscles to advantage to lift the face will be discussed. Special emphasis in this part 2 of lower facial contouring will be placed on the submental region and how to permanently and safely remove fat and tighten skin with chemical lipolysis as well as energy- based devices. When to choose one modality over the other or to combine them will be reviewed. Additionally, special attention will be placed on how to combine treatment modalities.
There has been an increasing interest in off the face non-surgical treatments of the buttock, abdomen and thighs. Injectable biostimulators and energy-based devices are being used in combination to treat lax, dimpled and atrophic skin of the body. The nonsurgical reduction of excess fat with energy based and injectable lipolytic agents have become more popular as result of less downtime, as has an increase in magnetic muscle stimulation to increase the tone of muscles. Areas previously only treated with surgery can now be cosmetically improved with high patient satisfaction non surgically. However, it is critical to know the anatomy, the appropriate layers to inject and or deposit energy as well as the ideal feminine and masculine proportions. Detailed anatomical descriptions, the reasons behind energy settings, filler dilutions as well as how to optimally combine modalities will be discussed. Post treatment protocols and avoiding potential complications and how to treat them if they occur will be reviewed. Live treatments will be demonstrated within the context of treating in a Covid environment.
The US is seeing an unprecedent number of neurotoxins enter the market with more likely to be approved in the coming years. While the currently approved popular ones are all of one serotype there remain minor but perhaps significant differences between their individual make ups. Details on the biochemical difference of the toxins will be discussed as well as how this may impact outcomes clinically. How to use each one and in which area of the face/body to maximize it to its fullest potential, improve skin quality and sculpt and contour the face while reducing unwanted side effects will be reviewed. Also, common complications will be discussed as well as not so widely known and obscured reported complications will be reviewed. How does increasing dose effect longevity of outcome and the risks associated will be touched upon. Tips and pearls for using neurotoxins for emerging indications will also be reviewed. This course will be highly current and on the forefront of neurotoxins in a period of rapid advancements in the thinking and use of Neurotoxins.
While there exists more similarities than differences between the various skin types there are differences in melanocyte shape and melaninstimulation potential that are noted and important to recognize in order to achieve ideal outcomes. Reducing risk for hyper and hypopigmentationas well as addressing melasma, rosacea, laxity and wrinkles in darker skin types will be covered . How to combine these energy based modalities with topicals to optimize results, and pre procedural preparation and post procedural skin treatments will be covered. Also at home care regimens will be discussed.
There’s lot of noise right now around whether high dose neurotoxins will lead to longer lasting wrinkle reduction results. But when it comes to increasing the dose, there is a lot more to consider than just wrinkles. Join Drs. Dayan and Fabi for a special episode of “Thriving in Aesthetics” as they debate the pluses, minuses, risks, benefits, and economic impacts of increasing the dose of neurotoxins used to reduce facial wrinkles. They are joined by expert guest physicians Drs. Jean Carruthers, John Joseph, Sue Ellen Cox, Steve Yoelin, Julius Few, and Joely Kaufman.
It’s a stacked panel of some of the most experienced minds in neurotoxins! This distinguished panel has participated in and published and presented on the clinical trials using high dose toxins. In this 2-hour CME program they will share all the nitty gritty, non-biased details of how well high dose neurotoxins really work and what it means to a practice.

Regenerative medicine is one of the fastest growing segments of aesthetic medicine. Recent research focused on how to stimulate collagen, elastin, ground substance, fat and bone has led to new excitement in cosmetic medicine. Joined by Dr. Kate Goldie from the United Kingdom and Dr. Daniel Coimbra from Brazil we discuss biostimulatory injectables and devices and their mechanism of actions with a renewed mindset and interest.
Biostimulation leads to the real possibility of long- lasting results. However, such thinking requires a measured approach clinically and a better understanding of where the fillers go, how to appropriately prepare and combine them safely with energy-based devices or other adjunctive treatments.
Deeper anatomy during live injections will be reviewed again to reassure knowledge of safe treatment zones. And potential as well as theoretical complications with biostimulatories will be reviewed. New advancements to look out for in the coming months will also be touched on as well.
