A wide variety of medical health professionals are expanding their scope of practice to include cosmetic injectables, both fillers and neurotoxins, and laser and light therapies. It is incumbent on each practitioner to equip themselves with the appropriate knowledge and understanding of the products they intend to utilise in their practices, as well as any licensing requirements for each state. Similarly, it is a requirement to gain an appreciation of the anatomy of the structures and regions they plan to treat.
A further element in this Scope of Practice is an understanding of the concepts of beauty and how these may vary in different ethnic backgrounds. These elements provide the basis of this teaching curriculum along with recognition of and avoidance and management of complications.
Concepts of Beauty
- What features are deemed to be ‘beautiful’ or ‘desirable’ and how do we achieve this.
- Ideal proportions and facial shape and contour.
- Beautification as opposed to Rejuvenation. Are they the same? How to achieve the best outcome.
- Avoiding extremes, producing a ‘natural’ result.
- Surface anatomy of the head and neck.
- Deeper structures
- Danger zones
Fillers: Hyaluronic Acid, Hyalase, CaOH Apatite, Polyacrylamide, autologous fat.
What are they? How do they work? Where do they fit in?
(The use of and precautions of CaOH, polyacrylamide and autologous fat are only available in Advanced and Master Class).
Neurotoxins; available sub types (varies with jurisdiction).
