Mission

Our mission is to set the standard of continuing education in the field of facial rejuvenation (including botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, lasers and more) by improving patient care worldwide, and by providing professionals with the highest level of clinical competency and proficiency possible.

The Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics was co-founded in 2008 by Dr. Warren Roberts and Dr. Jan Roberts. After attending several botulinum toxin and facial rejuvenation training programs earlier in their career, Drs. Roberts were concerned with the level of training that was being provided in the field of facial rejuvenation. To be an exceptional practitioner, Drs. Roberts both believe that you need not only a deep level of understanding of head and neck anatomy, but also a deep understanding of specific practices and injection techniques that make the patient experience remarkable. The result was the development of PTIFA – a training institute that provides an unprecedented depth of clinical theory, hands-on teaching and practice integration in the field of facial rejuvenation (botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, lasers, and more).

Dr. Warren Roberts, based out of Vancouver, BC is currently leading the facial rejuvenation industry. Since 2008, he has trained over 8,000 practitioners internationally, and has treated hundreds of botulinum toxin patients. Through his commitment to delivering excellence in this field, his program content and educational model is now being adopted by various regulatory boards across Canada to establish the “Standards of Practice”. In addition, PTIFA’s Roberts Facial Rejuvenation Photography™ series, which generates a 99% case acceptance rate, and the PTIFA Marking Template, the PTIFA Injection Template (Therapeutic & Cosmetic) and PTIFA Injection Technique, are also setting the standard for treatment in facial rejuvenation procedures.

What Makes Us Different

Anatomy & Evidence-Based Education
90% of negative side effects from botulinum toxin (aka Dysport®/Botox®) are injector related. That’s why we believe that in-depth knowledge of the relevant anatomy is essential, including reviewing facial anatomy in the lab, learning how to locate bony landmarks and facial muscle origins and insertions, permits accurate placement of the drug with no negative side effects. All of our courses are based on 16+ hours of advanced-anatomy learning taught in the Level 1 online course.
A High Caliber of Education
Our educational model provides such a high level of clinical competency and proficiency that it has been adopted by various regulatory boards across Canada to help develop the "Standard of Practice" for facial rejuvenation.
Extensive Hands-on Training
All of our hands-on courses provide the most extensive hands-on experience. You will have the opportunity to inject 10+ patients at the first hands-on course. Our goal is to give you as much hands-on experience as possible so that you can go back to your own practice and confidently treat patients on your own.
Proven Clinical Protocols
Learn PTIFA's proven Marking & Injection techniques through our integrative cadaver lab so that you can achieve predictable and desired results, a high-level of patient care and avoid negative side effects.
On-going Support Back in Practice
Once you have completed hands-on training, we provide on-going support to you back in your practice through the online Support Study Club. Receive help with your difficult cases, review videos on each facial muscle, train new team members with the clinical integration videos, post in the online Forum and more.
Complete Practice & Team Integration
We provide separate Team Training courses, as well as all of the tools and materials, so that you can go back and immediately start marketing and integrating treatment into your practice.
