Why doctors should learn cosmetic medicine?

Are you considering offering aesthetic treatments as a new part of your practice?
Do you feel tired of the daily stress of traditional medical and are interested in how you can boost your practice services with cosmetic injectables?

Learn how you can seamlessly integrate cosmetic injectables, including botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments, into your practice with Dermal Distinction’s proven clinical protocols and patient care practices. Increase your practice income and offer a service your patients will be happy to visit you for, that are rewarding and provide almost instant results for most treatments.

Cosmetic injecting for doctors is an incredible way to boost your enjoyment of your work day, whilst providing terrific results for your patients with botulinum toxin and Dermal Filler.


Which is the best cosmetic injecting course to do in Australia?

There are many cosmetic injecting courses for doctors in Australia. Many practitioners start with training through a pharmaceutical company. Unfortunately this can be biased. The best cosmetic injecting courses in Australia are Anatomy, Technique and Product based, with strong consultation and consenting (the ATPC approach). This means that your patient safety, results and scientific evidence is paramount to your pathway in becoming a cosmetic doctor.

Although our head trainer and director is a KOL (Key Opinion Leader) for Teoxane, Dr Giulia prides herself on Anatomy and technique first, as these two steps set you up to be the best cosmetic doctor, who can undertake cosmetic injecting for your patients.




What training is needed to be a cosmetic doctor?

Having the appropriate level of skill is very important when you are training to be a cosmetic doctor. We recommend that you start with our Level one course, Complete Lip artistry as you learn the most common Botulinum toxin treatments as well as lip enhancement. The most common dermal filler treatment in the world is lip filler, and our course will teach you how to be a lip filler expert and cosmetic doctor injector that is skilled in multiple techniques. Aside from that, you will also learn how to do dental block injections as part of your cosmetic doctor injector training, and the most commonly requested injectable treatments. You will be able to work as a cosmetic doctor right away.
Once you complete this course, you can then undertake the Level 2: Cheek Structure master course and the Level 3: Chin and Jawline course to complete the pathway of cosmetic doctor courses. Once you gain some industry experience, you can return and undertake an Advanced Private training course with us at Dermal Distinction Academy to master more complex areas such as the nasolabial folds and more.




Why should I learn to use a cannula for dermal filler?

When you undertake cosmetic injections, patient safety is the key to both great outcomes and reduction of risk.
Using a cannula to inject dermal filler will significantly reduce the risk of a vascular incident. In a recent study, the risk of a vascular incident when using a needle is 1:6410. However when using a cannula, the risk of a vascular incident (vascular occlusion) is around 1:40,882. This risk reduction is huge.
Whilst there may be occasions where the use of a needle is warranted, it is important that cosmetic injectors learn to use a cannula to deliver results in a safer way. The Global cosmetic injecting consensus is to use a cannula to improve patient safety and outcomes.

Cannula training benefits:

  • Improved safety
  • Improved patient satisfaction due to increased comfort
  • Reduced bruising
  • One entry point for wide treatment area
  • Change from superficial to deeper plane from one entry point

  • Reduced incidence of vascular event/occlusion [Needle risk 1:6410], [Cannula risk 1:40,882]
  • Multiple widths and lengths to suit all patients
  • Increased perceived level of care by patients due to higher satisfaction and reduced pain
  • Medical standard [Global injecting consensus compliant]

When a patient presents at your medical practice, you will find cosmetic injecting suitable for many of your patients. Ideal candidates for anti-wrinkle injections are those who have dynamic wrinkles that are visible when their face is moving. For patient that have deeper, static wrinkles (which are present even when the face isn’t moving), they may require a combination of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments to achieve the desired outcome, and we will teach you how to identify what will work best for different facial shapes. Cosmetic injecting for doctors will satisfy this demand from your patients.
