If you are ready to take your skillset to the next level, Dr. Cho can help you get there. Integrated Aesthetics Academy offers individual coaching, small group teaching and larger group seminars to help those advance their own journey as aesthetic and lifestyle providers.
Integrated Aesthetics Academy aims to provide educational hands-on training for injectors and aesthetic providers. Trainings are organized in half-day or full-day sessions. Below are some suggested topics of trainings. Depending on experience level, course content can be customized to suit individual training goals. Half-day trainings include discussions of pertinent anatomy, patient assessments, hands-on training, and addressing complications. Each half day session can accommodate 2-3 models depending on the experience level of the injector.
Skills to succeed in the aesthetics industry
ONE ON ONE
Introduction to Muscle Relaxers
Muscle relaxers such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Jeaveau and others are among the most requested aesthetics procedures. Pertinent to a consistent and predictable result is an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and ability to assess the individual patient in front of you. During this course, Dr. Cho will review pertinent anatomy, patient assessment, safe and predictable injection techniques, dosing and more. Most commonly injected areas include forehead, frown lines and crows feet. But many other areas can also be addressing including bunny lines, brow lift, lip flip, gum smile, masseters, depressor muscles of the lip, plastysma (Nefertiti lift) and more.
Introduction to Dermal Fillers
After muscle relaxer treatments, dermal fillers are amongst the most requested aesthetics procedures. There are many common and advanced injection techniques that can be learned, depending on where you are on your own educational journey. Procedures that can be covered include: nasolabial folds, lips, marionette, cheeks, chin/jawline, tear troughs, neck lines, and forehead. Dr. Cho will review pertinent anatomy, patient assessment and injection techniques. The amount of content covered during this hands-on session will depend on injection technique and number of attendees and whether a half-day or full-day session is chosen. Both needle and cannulas approaches can be taught.
Advanced Dermal Fillers
Experienced injectors may want to consider more advanced training with Dr. Cho. Topics can expand to advanced cannula use, blending of injectable products, combination therapy with PRP/PRF/threads, the use of Ultrasound for facial aesthetics assessment and treatment of complications. Participants will want to discuss with Dr. Cho directly based on their learning objectives.
This courses is designed for providers that want to learn to incorporate PRP/PRF into their practice and become certified to provide Vampire procedures such as: Vampire facial, Vampire facelift, O-shot, P-shot, Vampire breast lift and more.
Ultrasound for Facial Aesthetics
Ultrasound is considered a new frontier in enhancing safety and assessment in facial aesthetics . During this course, Dr. Cho will review the fundamentals of ultrasound, teach patient-specific anatomy and learning to incorporate the use of ultrasound in your facial aesthetic practice. Participants can take their injection practice to the next level and set themselves apart from other providers in their local area.
Cannulas have the distinct advantage of improving patient outcomes by decreasing the risk of bruising, swelling, and the need for multiple injection points. Cannulas can also teach you a great deal about the patient specific anatomy and where you are anatomically while you are injecting. Despite this, there are many hurdles to incorporating cannulas into an injection practice. Learn how to use cannulas for all the common injection areas including lips, cheeks, jawline, chin, marionette regions and more. Dr. Cho can help increase your confidence and overcome common hurdles associated with cannula use.

WHAT TO EXPECT
As an educator, I expect all my trainees to leave feeling more confident, knowledgeable with respect to the topics covered. Attendees will leave with an enhanced understanding of anatomy, product knowledge, hands-on techniques and patient safety regardless of where they are on their educational journey.
You can start injecting as long as you are properly licensed to do so. For example, if you are a physician and you have developed the skills and confidence, you can start immediately. If you are a nurse, PA or FNP, then you will need to discuss with your medical director before proceeding.
As the courses are customizable, you can first decide whether you would like to devote a half day or full day to your educational experience. We suggest you discuss with Dr. Cho your objectives, and he can discuss with you whether a full or half day will be more appropriate to address during your time together.
2 vials of neuromodulators are included for the muscle relaxer course. Up to six syringes of fillers are included for the dermal fillers courses. Additional product will be the responsibility of the trainee or can be purchased in addition to the course fee.
All participants will receive a certificate of completion stating whether their course was hands-on or as an observer and the high-level course content.
Trainings will take place at Dr. Cho’s office or at the trainee’s office. For extended travel, there may be additional fees to cover travel expenses.
