This comprehensive hands-on training workshop explores the fundamental cosmetic applications employed by expert injectors of Kybella® (deoxycholic acid). The first FDA approved drug of its kind with an indication for submental fullness (double chin). Kybella® injections are used to contour and improve the appearance of the multiple body areas by reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck. We will discuss Kybella® for on and off-label treatments to include, jowls, anterior and posterior axillae, medial knee, and abdomen. Safety, side effects, contraindications, patient selection, treatment protocols and mapping, pre and post treatment considerations will be addressed. Procedures and techniques will be explained to bolster your knowledge and ultimately prepare you for the hands-on practice sessions.

This comprehensive hands-on-training workshop explores the multiple cosmetic applications of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF).

The didactic presentation will include; PRP theory, mechanism of action, and injection techniques.

We will discuss PRP as a stand-alone treatment and PRP with fillers. Discussion of other complementary modalities and protocols used with PRP to enhance treatments, such as micro-needling, and how to incorporate PPP (Platelet Poor Plasma).

Primary focus regarding treatment protocols will be on face and neck aging, breast, and treatment protocols for hair loss. However, we will also briefly discuss scars, acne, and more using PRP and PRF.

Procedure and techniques will be explained to bolster your knowledge and ultimately prepare you for the hands-on practice sessions.

Whether you are a new or seasoned aesthetic practitioner, you may feel the need to sharpen your skills, knowledge, and experience with neurotoxins and dermal fillers. This program will meet the needs of the practitioner desiring more hands-on and 1:1 support from our expert faculty, who can assist in taking you to the next level as an aesthetic injector. Coaching sessions are customized to meet your specific educational and training needs. With the focus being hands-on training, you will have the opportunity to inject more patients, build greater confidence, and learn new techniques to expand your aesthetic injectable practice.

The typical session will consist of a brief 15-20 minute review of questions and charts of patients. Each patient that is scheduled will be assessed for his or her aesthetic needs, and a brief review of the treatment plan will be conducted with the practitioner. The instructor will be there to coach the practitioner as he or she injects the patient. A review of the injecting technique and Q&A will be conducted privately following each patient treatment.

This session does not have a manual or a didactic component. In order to be eligible for a coaching session, the practitioner must have taken a previous aesthetic injectable course. Previous courses may be through other sources outside of IEE, or its trusted affiliates. This offering is not intended to be a formal instruction course. Rather, the focus is to sharpen your current skills and techniques through guided and customized injection experiences. The emphasis will be limited to treatment areas the practitioner has previous knowledge and experience with.
