Getting started by treating the ideal Botox® patient

After graduating from our Level 2 course in Vancouver, BC or Alberta, it’s an exciting time for you to get started with Botox®. Dr. Roberts recommends that all dentists, doctors and nurses begin their journey by focusing on developing their confidence, diagnosis and technique. The best way to do this is to focus on treating the “ideal Botox® patient” for your first few cases.

Who is the” ideal Botox® patient”?

The “ideal Botox® patients” are typically females, between the age of 35 to 45 years, who have initial lines forming. When you’re getting started, it’s best to avoid treating patients who are 50+ years in age, as they often have more components of the aging process (ie: functional Frontalis, hooding of the eye and sun exposure).

What sort of treatment do they require?

To get the greatest “WOW” effect, Dr. Roberts recommends that you treat the following three areas: Glabella, Frontalis and Crow’s Feet.

Who are some potential candidates?

Start by selecting your first 20 Botox® cases from your biggest fans – ie: your team, family members, friends and your top patients. We recommend that you treat each of your team members at no cost. Nothing can replace the enthusiasm and excitement they will have after having treatment. Team members are the best advocates for you within your practice, and so encourage them to share their before and after photos with patients.

What resources are there available to help me?

In the membership section of the online Botox® Study Club, you can refer back to a number of Botox® videos after the Level 2 course. Dr. Roberts has recorded the PTIFA Marking and Injection Techniques for treating the Glabella, Frontalis and Crow’s Feet. Log-in and review how Dr. Roberts marks the areas of treatment, and then injects a patient using the PTIFA Injection and Wheel Technique. There are also a number of patient education tools you can download to help show your existing patients about the benefits of Botox® treatment. If you would like additional support, you can always upload your case for Dr. Roberts to review using the Case Support form in the Study Club.
