VIDEO: Hone aesthetic technique with upper face first



– For those starting to use toxins and fillers, “my first advice is to get a good education,” Christopher B. Zachary, MD, said in a video interview at Skin Disease Education Foundation’s annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar.

“Know … how to evaluate your patient, know where the problems are, know what the danger zones are, understand your anatomy,” advised Dr. Zachary of the University of California, Irvine.

“In general, the upper face is an easier place to start,” when learning to work with toxins , he noted. Procedures on the upper face, such as the treatment for crow’s feet or a brow lift, can be “a home run,” while the lower face is much more complicated, he said in the video interview.

Dr. Zachary disclosed relationships with companies including Solta, Zeltiq, Sciton, DUSA, Zimmer, Cutera, Alma, and Amway.

SDEF and this news organization are owned by the same parent company.
