Here’s your ticket to successfully advancing your professional career and breaking into the medical aesthetics industry in Ottawa. Discover the exciting opportunities that await you after completing APT Injection Training’s verified cosmetic injection certification at our training facility in Oakville, Ontario. 

Botox is one of the hottest injectable treatments of today. In fact, there are more than 6 million treatments performed annually all over the globe. Other brands of the Botulinum toxin offered commercially aside from Botox are Xeomin, Dysport, and Nuceiva. 

A favourite anti-ageing and facial rejuvenating treatment, it relaxes and softens the muscles that frequently move and contract for facial expressions. It effectively enhances fine lines, wrinkles, sagging jowls, and other visible symptoms of ageing. Botox has also been proven to address several medical conditions, including migraines, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome, neck spasms (cervical dystonia), and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Despite being in the market for many years, the demand for Botox has continued to rise. If you would like to take advantage of this promising and profitable treatment, our Botox training for medical aesthetics professionals in Ottawa is the perfect solution.

Our Botox Training Approach

APT Injection Training is a leading provider of top-notch cosmetic injection certification for Ottawa-based cosmetic professionals, offering third-party accredited training courses for individuals across Canada. Our comprehensive training courses are a brilliant mix of valuable theoretical and practical knowledge that would benefit healthcare professionals who are seeking to specialize in their practice and to become certified cosmetic injectors. We accept licensed physicians, dental surgeons, nurses, and practical nurses.

Intimate Classes (Trainee/Trainer ratio of 2:1)

One of APT’s stand out qualities is our strict adherence to maintaining a small class with any of our cosmetic injection certification applicable to Ottawa medical aesthetics professionals. Our classes observe a maximum ratio of 2:1 trainee to trainer ratio. We have discovered that our students had a better learning experience overall. They said learning had become more personal and experiential. 

  • Encourages discussion
    The intimate setup gives them the confidence to speak out and raise their questions because they are not intimidated by the large crowd, and they know they have their instructor’s 100 percent attention. 
  • Maximum hands-on experience

Students have the assurance that they get more than what they paid for with APT courses. They don’t have to take turns and are allotted the time they need individually to practice on a live patient model. They are closely supervised and guided by the instructor every step and are provided with insightful feedback and pointers.

Because of our personalized approach, we are able to support our students and keep track of their learning progress. They come out of APT’s cosmetic injection certification in Ottawa as well-trained and confident cosmetic injectors ready for the real world.

Learn from The Best Expert Injectors in The Country

At APT, we not only take pride in our masterfully crafted courses but also in our impressive team of instructors. We meticulously select our trainers and make sure they share the same core values we espouse in the organization.

Our Botox training for Ottawa medical aesthetics professionals is led by APT Founder and Lead Practitioner Patricia Pezzano, BSc, BSc (NANS), RPN. Sharing her passion for facial rejuvenation, she not only maintains a full-service medical aesthetics practise but also actively trains aspiring practitioners. With more than two decades of professional practice, she brings to the table valuable insights and expertly combines her impressive theory base with clinical expertise, her best-kept secrets in achieving the “perfect practice” in both toxin and dermal fillers.

Course Outline: Lecture and Hands-on

Once you sign up, you will be assigned with several hours’ worth of pre-course reading work. We encourage you to read and study them in preparation for your training. 

APT Botox training for Ottawa-based injectors is an action-packed one-day event. It will begin with a lecture in the morning where instructors will give an overview of the following topics:

  • Ideal beauty concepts and facial features
  • Facial anatomy and muscle physiology
  • The benefits and risks associated with Botox injections

The practical demonstration and actual hands-on training on live models will commence in the afternoon. At APT, we do not use saline substitutes in our demonstration and hands-on training. We only use the actual product to give the students an authentic injecting experience and make them aware of how the drug behaves, what to expect as a result and common post-treatment effects. 

During the hands-on Botox training in our Oakville training facility, the instructor, who is an expert injector, will tackle how to administer facial injections in both the upper and lower face. It will include the following treatment sites:

  • Down-turned mouth (depressor anguli oris)
  • Eye jelly roll (hypertrophic orbicularis)
  • Gummy smile (LLSAN)
  • Mental crease / peau d’orange / chin dimpling (mentalis)
  • Platysmal neck bands (platysma)
  • Smoker’s lines of the mouth (orbicularis oris)
  • Frown lines (glabellar complex)
  • Forehead lines (horizontal)
  • Crow’s feet (periorbital rhytids)
  • Brow lift (medial & lateral brow depressors)
  • Bunny lines of the nose (nasalis)

Our Training Courses

APT Injection Training has a wide selection of courses dedicated to facial rejuvenation. Aside from strictly Botox training for Ottawa medical aesthetics professionals, we also offer the following:

Foundation Toxin and Dermal Filler Certificate of Attendance

A 2-day training course intended for registered medical professionals. It combines critical theoretical pre-course learning, practical demonstration of procedures, and extensive hands-on training on live models. It is a stand-alone course that is the minimum required to begin practising toxin and dermal filler treatments. It can also be used as credit toward the more intensive, internationally recognized International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies.

International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies.

APT Injection Training is the only toxin training centre in North America to offer true third-party certification through our UK partner, MATA training and OTHM, an internationally recognized awarding body. OTHM, a globally recognized awarding organization, is regulated by the Ofqual (Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) and recognized by Qualifications Wales. This means that you are able to apply the experience you have gained in our courses toward an internationally recognized International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies. 

The international certification involves completion of extensive, university-level pre course work (representing 230 UK CME), three (3) days of intensive training, completion of a logbook and short answer questions that are all independently assessed by OTHM who then awards the certification. This is a true certification. Other courses that “ certify” are really doing it only to their standards, not independently developed and assessed standards. 

APT Injection Training has been independently assessed, including our processes, training materials, and other related matters and certified by a recognized independent organization. This is a valuable endorsement that promotes the level of expertise and quality that you can expect from our Botox training courses for Ottawa medical aesthetics professionals.

Basic Lower Face Cannula Training–Hyaluronic Acid

Learn an alternative way to administer dermal fillers on clients via the cannula technique. This 1-day course training will go over similar topics in the Basic Filler Training Course, including the same pre-course reading material, employs the same 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio with approximately 7-8 live models but the hands-on training will involve the use of cannulas instead of needles.

Advanced Dermal Filler Training–Hyaluronic Acid & Radiesse

This is the next step after Foundation Basic Filler Injection and the Lower Face Cannula Training Program. It’s a 1-day training course that introduces cannula injections and focuses more on advanced treatment areas, such as the temples and tear troughs. It includes pre-course reading material, employs the same 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio with approximately 7-8 live models for hands-on injections. This is highly recommended for professionals with prior experience of injecting at least 50 patients before taking this course as the adverse events in the temples and tear troughs can be severe and permanent.

Lip Filler Training

A comprehensive 1-day hands-on training on live models and lecture covering the latest types of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for lip enhancement. It goes in-depth on dermal fillers (history, FDA approval, and mechanism of action), establishing client expectations, recognizing contraindications, potential risks, including the use of hyaluronidase and emergency procedure. The focus is on different types of lip injections to achieve volume, definition, support and contour but, most importantly, to obtain natural-looking, proportional lips that clients will love.

The Laser Module Course

This online training course is expertly written to support you with your theoretical learning on the safe and effective use of laser and intense light technology for cosmetic treatments, such as hair reduction and skin rejuvenation. Purchasing a laser machine is a major investment that requires in-depth laser knowledge to make sure you make the correct purchase for your practice and client profile. This course will help you do that by educating you on the core laser technology, so you understand the individual machine nuances as they are trialled in your business. The objective is to enable practitioners to succinctly assess the different laser machines on the market to help you choose the right machine for your practice.

Dental Filler & Botox Training

An intensive 1-day training course for dentists who seek to add neurotoxin injection and lip filler services to their current scope of practice. It involves pre-course theoretical material covering both neurotoxin and dermal filler, including anatomy, recognizing contraindications, potential risks, the use of hyaluronidase and emergency procedures. The hands-on injection portion will include cosmetic toxin injections, TMJ injections, lips and lower face dermal filler indications. We employ the same, customized 2:1 trainee: trainer ratio as in all of our APT courses to ensure maximum hands-on injection and confidence when leaving the course.
