Science & Beauty Advancement Course Information

Beginner or Advanced Injection Course

The injection course starts with the fundamentals of head & neck anatomy as well as the basic aesthetic principles. Both beginner and advanced courses will thoroughly take the injector through the rigors of evaluating the patient, selecting the correct treatment plan and understanding how to execute the treatment plan. To optimize the results, we will discuss combining modalities such as threads or energy-based devices, as well as when to consider surgical options and an introduction to those surgical procedures. We will learn how to deal with all potential patient outcomes (short term and long term), identify and treat vascular emergencies, the rheology of each injectable, bio stimulatory capability and long term sequelae.

  • An online pre-test will determine placement in beginner or advanced courses.
  • A suggested reading list will be provided prior to the course starting.
  • Injectors are asked to bring 2 models.
  • There is a full day or half day option for this course.

Energy Based Devices Course

The energy-based device course will begin with the basics of laser physics and fundamentals of technology. We will discuss the different modalities, different stimulations, different wavelengths and their different results. We will go over how heat interacts with the tissues on different levels to cause a controlled desired aesthetic outcome. One must understand the basics before achieving successful outcomes and before progressing. The course will take place in the office of Dr. Halaas where she has over 40 devices. We will walk you through the details of how these devices work. This will enable you to become extremely comfortable using these powerful tools. Dr. Halaas will be teaching the course with Raechel Lowe.
