Reduce headache/migraine. Improve the lives of your patients with proven threshold dosage levels of botulinum toxin.

Improve patient care with a deep understanding of how botulinum toxin fits into your diagnostic and treatment armamentarium, and thereby improving the well-being of your patients.

Practice Revenue Opportunity

According to the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics report, botulinum toxin (ie: Dysport®/Botox®) procedures has grown over 819% from 2000 to 2017.  Are you taking advantage of this expanding market? Learn how you can improve patient care and increase practice revenue with minimal overhead.

On average, a new botulinum toxin patient requires 50-70 units of treatment. At $12 per unit, that visit equals $600-$840 in practice revenue. Seeing only six botulinum toxin patients per month produces approximately $3,600 – $5,040 additional revenue per month.

In one year, six botulinum toxin patients per month will produce a minimum of $43,200 in practice revenue.

Initial Outlay

Tuition Expense:

Total Tuition: $5,894

Supplies Expense:

  • Set-up Tray (syringes, ice packs, saline etc.) $250
  • Cost of botulinum toxin product ($270 – $365 /vial)

Total Cost = $6,414

Family physicians will see a complete return on their training investment in less than two months (based on seeing six botulinum toxin patients, not including cost of Dysport/Botox® product). Besides ordering product and incorporating a tray system, offering botulinum toxin as a treatment requires no additional equipment or investment. Upon graduating from Level 2, you will be able to offer both the aesthetic treatments for reducing the signs of aging (ie: fine facial lines and wrinkles), as well as the therapeutic treatments (ie: migraines/headaches).

Do these courses satisfy my medical college requirements?
The courses at PTIFA typically exceed the requirements laid out by the medical colleges. However, please appreciate we train practitioners from across the world, and it is up to each participant to contact their local licensing college for scope and guidelines prior to registering.
Can I earn CME credits?
You will be provided a course certificate with your CME credits (Category 2) upon successful completion of the course. To view course details & CME, please click here.
Can physicians delegate cosmetic injectable services (ie: botulinum toxin, dermal filler) to a nurse?
Typically, yes nurses can provide these services to patients. Please appreciate that PTIFA trains medical graduates from across the world, and that we always recommend that you check-in with your local licensing college for details.
I’m an international graduate. Can I take this course?
Our courses are available to international dental, medical and nursing graduates. However, some of the treatments include the use of prescription medications (ie: botulinum toxin) and require the ability to prescribe and/or administer prescription medications. Please appreciate we train practitioners from across the world and that regulations vary. Please contact the local licensing college within the jurisdiction you plan to practice for details prior to registering.
Do you have a combined botulinum toxin & dermal filler course?
Our educational content is thoughtfully created and structured to allow dental and medical graduates to be successful in achieving predictable results - with little to no side effects. To do this, practitioners require a deep understanding of underlying anatomy, as well as a specific treatment and injection practices that provide the highest level of patient care. Both topics of botulinum toxin (Dypsort®/Botox®) and dermal fillers require ample anatomy-based instruction and clinical hands-on practice. It is not possible to obtain the depth of skill needed to be successful at both in a combined botulinum toxin/dermal filler course.  
I've already taken a Botox® course or have already been doing injections for a while in my practice. Where do I start?
The best way to assess your current level of knowledge and training is to take our free online Botox IQ Test. We have found that typically only 1 in 50 practitioners who have taken another botulinum toxin course can confidently and correctly answer all of the nine questions. As all of our hands-on courses are based in the anatomy taught in the Level 1 course, we require each practitioner to complete Level 1. We invite you to contact us to discuss your involvement and registration.
How are your courses different from others?
PTIFA is an advanced anatomy-based educational provider who has more than 8,000 dentist, physician and nurse alumni around the world. Our graduates have been trained to provide the highest level of patient care in the field. PTIFA’s courses provide an unprecedented depth of clinical teaching in the field of facial rejuvenation with an emphasis on anatomy and evidence-based learning, clinical efficacy and proficiency, as well as complete practice and team integration. We offer a unique educational format that includes a combination of online courses, extensive hands-on clinical experience and an online Support Study Club. You will not find a more comprehensive and anatomy-based injectable course. Many licensing colleges are now adopting our educational curriculum to establish the “Standard of Practice” within their jurisdiction.
I only want to learn the therapeutic use of botulinum toxin. What course do I take?
There is significant overlap between aesthetic and therapeutic treatments. Therapeutic treatment can have aesthetic side effects and vice versa. A thorough understanding of how the two are related is required for effective and appropriate treatment. The PTIFA Therapeutic and Aesthetic Templates illustrates their synergy. Precise anatomical placement and proper dosage is required in each case. Higher dosage than that used for aesthetic treatment alone results in reduction of headaches and migraines (see Allergan’s PREEMT study). A threshold dosage, carefully placed, must be reached in order to obtain therapeutic relief. At this juncture, the secondary and tertiary mechanisms of action of botulinum toxin (Dysport®/Botox®) come into play, and there is a synergy between aesthetic and therapeutic outcomes. That's why our Level 2 course has been designed to teach you the aesthetic use of botulinum toxin in the upper face, as well as the therapeutic use for reducing pain (migraines/ headaches/ TMJ/ bruxing/ etc). For learning therapeutic treatment skills we recommend the Level 1 online and Level 2 hands-on courses as a minimum. Level 3 takes the therapeutic training deeper. To learn more, review Dr. Roberts' article "Botulinum Toxin: Not Just a Pretty Face".
Can I bring my team to the course?
Yes! We highly encourage you to register your team for the Level 2 – Team Training course. This course is geared specifically for non-injecting team members (receptionists, office managers, chair-side assistants, hygienists, medical office assistants, pharmacy assistants, etc) and has been developed to aid successful integration into the medical or dental office.
How much hands-on instruction will I have?
Our goal is to maximize the amount of hands-on experience you have so you are confidant offering treatment on your own after the course. At the Level 2 course you can expect to inject 10+ different patients. This is achieved by sharing patient models amongst all practitioners to ensure an opportunity to experience multiple tissue types and areas of the face.
I’m currently in medical/dental/nursing school. Can I take this course now?
Yes. As Level 1 is all online, anyone can register for the course.
How do I integrate botulinum toxin into my practice? Is it different for medical vs. dental practitioners?
The Level 1 and Level 2 curriculum has been uniquely developed to help you successfully integrate botulinum toxin treatment into your practice immediately after taking the course. We understand that incorporating a new treatment modality can be challenging. Our Level 2 graduates can expect to receive all of the training, tools and clinical requirements so that they can begin integrating treatment into their offices immediately after the course.
