This workshop focuses on the fundamental of FDA approved neurotoxins (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®). Some history and pathophysiology on the use of different serotypes of botulinum toxin as well as a review of pertinent facial anatomy will be presented.  Then discussion will follow between the differences between the various agents (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®) to optimize the treatment plan for your patients.  In addition, safety and efficacy issues, management and treatment of complications, and dilution and storage guidelines will be covered. The course will cover the fundamental instruction of mapping and injection techniques for the three most frequently requested areas of the upper face (glabella, crow’s feet, and forehead).  We will also touch on how to perform eyelift and bunny nose injections.  The participants will be able to practice mapping the injection sites on their peers and practice the injections on pig’s feet.
