Juvederm was perfected for nasolabial folds but has found its place as the 'best-yet' lip augmentation injectable, a short-term nose reshaping and nasal bridge building agent, a support for the brow. The list continues to grow as we discover facial area balancing techniques that prove to be a big appearance booster.
Orange County, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
Board Certified Dermatologist and Dermasurgeon Nissan Pilest, medical director of Total Dermatology in Irvine, Ca., recently attended a closed session invitation-only speaker training program for Allergan Medical Aesthetics. Subjects included advanced techniques and applications of Allergan cosmetic dermal fillers Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus as well as the flagship wrinkle fighter Botox Cosmetic.
A select hand picked group of only 150 physicians from across the country were invited to a 2 day Allergan Medical Facial Aesthetics Speaker Training program held at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, Ca.
Dr. Pilest is a nationally recognized filler and Botox training physician and claims a Platinum Plus Botox provider status. His private practice, Total Dermatology has for years been designated as a national Botox Training Facility. For the past year he has presented to hundreds of doctors on the full use and injection techniques for Allergan's Juvederm filler product.
"I've always been a first adopter of forward-use applications for dermal fillers and Botox. Both Juvederm and Botox have the power to accomplish dramatic corrections and improvement in appearance. Sharing with my medical colleagues in these advanced use trainings is rewarding for all of us," shares Dr. Pilest.
"Although the FDA typically only evaluates injectables based on one use, as physicians we have the opportunity to evaluate additional uses that are of great benefit to our patients. Such is the case in the wide variety of uses for Botox - once only in use for eye spasms. Today this product eliminates frowns, reduces wrinkles around the eyes, lifts mouth corners, smoothes necks…and those are just a few uses.
"Juvederm was perfected for nasolabial folds but has found its place as the 'best-yet' lip augmentation injectable, a short-term nose reshaping and nasal bridge building agent, a support for the brow. The list continues to grow as we discover facial area balancing techniques that prove to be a big appearance booster."
The group of invited physicians shared an array of injectable uses, including how to use fillers as an alternative to surgical fat transfer to fill hollows under the eye. Due to the delicate structures and nerve network around the eye, only the most advanced injectors are capable of safely addressing this concern.
Dr. Pilest will be expanding his speaking engagements to reach more physicians who require both basic and more elevated levels of injection techniques. Physicians who are interested in access to the special training and demonstration seminars are encouraged to contact their Allergan representative.
