Picture of myself and Dr. Yoelin, the Botox
Master of San Diego
Botox injectors meeting
I think in this world the word meeting, course, and program are used interchangeably.
There was a course offering from a prestigious injection course which is offered in various places nationwide. It’s called the Palette Training program for cosmetic injections – and there are several meetings for different levels of injectors and also specialty sections for things such as tear troughs, cannulas and I believe lip augmentation. There happened to be a higher level course offered in Sacramento. Not too far from my location of Modesto, CA.
Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, Belotero, Radiesse
The word is neuromodulators – which includes Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. It’s less brand specific. This was a 4 hour long CME program (I earn credits for continuing medical education). The program I selected was led by Dr. Steve Yoelin of San Diego. He has a super busy Botox and Juvederm (I mean neuromodulator and filler) practice which I’ve heard is booked for many years. I met him before at the Allergan / Latisse speaker’s training program – this was a training session which guided us through the slide deck for our talks. I was very impressed by him – he was very supportive which I felt made him the perfect teacher. While I was on “tour” with my talk for Allergan, I met attendees of my talk who spoke very highly of learning from Dr. Yoelin. So I figured that I should check this course out for myself. He teaches all levels of injectors and I selected the highest level which was called a level III course. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and learned a few tips for my own practice.
Take home pearls on Lip Augmentation and more
I especially appreciated some ideas he gave me for lip augmentation and for filling of temples and lateral eye brow areas. He did say to use the non-dominant hand to help guide the cannulas in injections.
Another great tip I learned from the Tiger Woods of cosmetic injectors (at my recent trip to Sacramento): While injecting Juvederm, he said I had great control, but would be able to take it to the next level if I used my non-dominant hand more to drive the direction of the cannula (special needle).
