About the course
The injectable form of Botulinum Toxin Type-A (BTX-A), is marketed and supplied under a variety of trade names such as Botox®, Bocouture® and Azzalure®. It is nowadays a popular cosmetic treatment for temporarily relaxing lines and wrinkles on the face and other visible parts of the anatomy.
However, before gaining popularity as a cosmetic agent it was initially developed as a medical treatment agent, and can be particularly effective when used by appropriately trained and qualified podiatrists in the treatment of various pathologies of the foot and associated structures, such as severe hyperhidrosis – and other conditions.
This course will inform the delegates on the background and developmental history of BTX-A, its method of action, pharmaceutical presentation and legal availability, preparation protocols, safety procedures and contra-indications, conditions which it may treat and methods and techniques of administration.
Delegates are invited and encouraged to arrange for one of their clients with problems such as hyperhidrosis to come along and be treated, under tutor direction and supervision, by the delegate.
Delegate places are limited (Max 12)
This course is approved and certified by The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists
CPD certificates given on completion of training (8 credits)
