The Facial Aesthetics Master Online Program includes the following three programs:

Introduction to Aesthetics 101 Online Program

This program starts with a brief introduction describing how the art of aesthetics directly ties into the field of facial aesthetics. This program introduces members to the concept of facial BeautiΦication, with an emphasis on the Greek symbol Φ, which represents Phi, described in this program as the Golden Ratio of Beauty. This program also introduces members to the ideal facial dimensions and how they relate to the overall appearance of the face. In addition, this program provides an in-depth look at the facial anatomy described as Facenatomy. Lastly, members will understand the aging process and how to apply the 4R’s of Aesthetics to restore beauty and youth in the face.

Botulinum Toxin 101 Online Program

This comprehensive program covers the history of neurotoxins, molecular structure, mode of action, indications and contraindications. In this program, members will learn about BotoxNatomy™, which details the different facial expression muscles anatomy and their associated actions. Members will also look at the clinical application of neurotoxins covering the proper clinical assessment, markings, dosage, the art of injecting neurotoxins to soften expressive lines and create upper and lower facelift, pitfalls and how to address them. Lastly, members will have a first-hand look at a collection of videos that demonstrate the art of injecting the forehead, droopy eyebrows, crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines, gummy smile, lips definition, chin enhancement, jawline and lower face contouring and platysma bands. This online program is designed to provide unexperienced practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of neurotoxins and further enrich the knowledge experienced injectable practitioners.

Dermal Fillers 101 Online Program

This detailed program explores the facial aging process and facial analysis pertinent to dermal fillers, classification of dermal filers, indications and contraindications. Also covered is the anatomy and techniques of regional nerve blocks of the face, injection techniques of upper, middle and lower face and how to avoid and treat dermal fillers complications. Lastly, members will be able to watch a series of demonstration videos covering eyebrow lift, glabellar and forehead lines, nasolabial folds and marionette line corrections. Members will see proper injection techniques for treating hollowness under the eyes, tear trough deformity, enhancement of the cheeks, creating natural fuller lips, and contouring the chin and jaw line.

In-Person Training Session topics:

Aesthetic Decoding the Façe | The MD Codes™:

The MD Codes™ are a series of precise sites that were created by Dr. De Maio designed to deliver natural harmonious Facial BeautiΦication results. They consist of a variable number of injection sites divided into anatomical areas. Each injection site is represented by letters and numbers. The letters represent the anatomical area and the numbers may indicate the sequence in which the injections may be potentially delivered. The MD Codes™ are a helpful tool to help patients understand their treatment motivation. By using the MD Codes™ patients will point out the areas of concern so that the injector may discuss and communicate the MD Codes™ for their Treatment Plan. It is not uncommon that patients are unaware of the precise injection sites that should be treated to assist the correction of the areas of concern. The MD Codes™ may explain why the improvement of an area may be achieved without direct injection but by treating a neighbor or distant area. Attendees will have the opportunity to apply the advanced aesthetic techniques and inject realistic facial mannequins under the guidance of experienced physician educators.

Once lifted, Juvederm is injected to hold the elevated tissues position in place at which point the cannula is withdrawn from treated area.
