This presentation will cover how the evolution in practical techniques and clinical doses has changed over the years when using Botulinum Toxin for facial rejuvenation. Although there are a large number of well conducted studies demonstrating the efficacy of varying doses of botulinum toxin in varying applications, observations of real world experience are also essential to guide clinical practice. It is therefore essential that new comers to this field are cognisant of their learning needs from an early stage but also recognise that continual learning from peers can be as valuable as the published evidence.
This lecture will provide an overview of the applications of Botulinum Toxin treatment in the face and neck for the novice injector. Dr Tapan will present best practice guidelines and suggestions to ensure practitioners can get consistent and aesthetically pleasing results.
Patients will come for treatment with certain expectations. During consultation we must give a realistic picture of just what can be achieved. As much as we will discuss what toxin can do, we must also be clear in our explanations of what cannot be achieved.
For practitioners, having a good understanding of the facial muscles, their positions and actions, toxin treatments become a process of logic: and being able to explain this to patients will set out realistic expectations, which will mean that both the practitioner and patient will have a more satisfactory outcome.

LIVE DEMONSTRATION Treatment of the Upper Third: Frown, Eyes & Forehead This live demonstration is an opportunity to become familiar with predicting the outcome of treatments with Botox® in the three main areas of use in the upper face: crows’ feet; frown lines; and forehead lines.
· Learn the important differences in anatomy between individuals and adjust treatments accordingly.
· Understand how to assess the face and choose the most effective dose and injection techniques.
· Understand how to avoid common unpleasing results and avoid both common and rare side effects.
LIVE DEMONSTRATION Treatment of the Midface, Nasal and Peri Oral Region The implementation of Botulinum Toxin in this region is very challenging for many reasons. Essentially, an acceptable balance must be achieved between aesthetics and function. Over correction is not an option. Indeed, conservative management must the focus in most cases.
Prof Khanna will demonstrate his delicate approach and rationale for the treatment of the nose (bunny lines, nasal flaring, nasal tip lift), gummy smile correction, upper and lower lip vertical creases and oral commissures.
Prof Khanna will discuss the most appropriate techniques for injection and dose, so as to maintain this happy medium between aesthetics and function as a useful treatment modality to complement other treatment options e.g. fillers, lasers, peels and threads. Live Demonstration by: Professor Bob Khanna BDS, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dental Surgeon and International Facial Aesthetics Trainer

Treatment of the Chin, Jawline & Neck
Although most aesthetic practitioners are confident and conversant with treating the upper face, Botulinum toxin is an excellent tool to treat some lower face and neck indications. The practitioner needs to be familiar with the relevant underling anatomy and the appropriate indications for treatment. During this live demonstration; Dr Tapan will explain the selection, analysis, marking and treatment of the Masseter, mentalis, depressor angularis oris and platysma muscle.
The evolution of facial fillers stems first from the use of fat, followed by collagen, and now to modern day Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers. We will discuss how the different types of HA are now available and their use in today’s cosmetic patient.
Application and Patient Selection in Dermal Fillers
This talk will highlight how to ensure your practice grows and stays successful. How do you reach the ideal of happy patients and happy practitioners when using dermal fillers? Dr Ejikeme will guide you thorough who to treat, when to treat, when not to treat what should be used in different areas of the body.
Facial rejuvenation for men and women, feminisation and masculinisation of faces will require an in depth understanding of the differences between the skeletal and soft tissue morphology of men and women. Dr Samizadeh will discuss morphological differences between the skeletal and soft tissues in men and women, landmarks, treatment indications and treatment planning.
Facial filler treatment has evolved considerably from the early days of lip and naso-labial fold treatment. We can use the products for global facial re-volumisation and also target discrete areas such as tear troughs. We can use some basic concepts to help developing skills in these techniques. Dr Tapan will review these concepts and showcase the different training methods.
Treatment of the Neck: A Simple and Effective Technique
Neck rejuvenation procedures and associated modalities continue to evolve with a growing number of techniques designed to address the clinical consequences as a result of ageing.
An aged neck may manifest with signs of skin laxity, a thickened and coarse texture and visible lines, and dyschromias, yet patterns of ageing can be variable, with individuals with thinner necks, good skeletal support, and good neck height, potentially ageing differently than those individuals with heavy, shorter necks and poor mandibular support. In addition, extrinsic factors, the interplay of structures deep to the skin, and the skin’s ability to drape over them, can determine this presentation. This session will briefly explore the salient topographic anatomical structures of the neck, with analysis of the age related changes. A 10-point injectable technique will be demonstrated using a unique hyaluronic acid product for rejuvenation of the neck.
Dynamic partnership Dr Raj Acquilla & Dr Kate Goldie will take you on a comprehensive journey of the total face approach. Including detailed assessment, planning and injection technique. Target areas include, forehead, temple, eye brows, tear trough, cheeks, nose, lips, chin and jawline. Simple and reproducible methodology to allow our delegates to upgrade their results in clinic.
