From February 14-17, 900 aesthetic professionals were given the opportunity to observe and work alongside aesthetic practitioner Dr Mauricio de Maio as part of the MD Codes Tour, supported by the Allergan Medical Institute (AMI).
Dr de Maio took delegates through the ‘Immersion and DYNA Expression’ curriculum as the programme focused on understanding how to treat patients’ dynamic expressions, which introduces the MD DYNA Codes, for each muscle of the face. Also presented was the facial assessment tool, MD ASA, for assessment of favourable and unfavourable features for each patient.
The event sessions were live-streamed through the company’s digital platform, AMI Digital World and featured a session designed for clinicians to inject along with Dr de Maio, in their own clinics. Allergan explained that this allowed, ‘A greater number of clinicians to benefit from access to this world-leading educational programme, in line with Allergan’s commitment to improve standards and capabilities in medical aesthetics’.
Nancy Ghattas, Allergan associate vice president UK and Ireland country manager commented, “Allergan has a proud history of developing the highest quality aesthetic products and is committed to raising standards in medical aesthetics. The Allergan Medical Institute is dedicated to promoting excellence in clinical practice through the delivery of industry leading and innovative education and training to doctors, dentists and nurses.”
She continued, “Our focus on patient safety and outcomes, ensures that where our products are used, patients can be confident they will receive safe and effective treatment from appropriately qualified and experienced medical professionals.”
