Description: Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer from unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing the training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. EMT's comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today. Program Overview: The Sclerotherapy seminar is a combination lecture and workshop where learners will participate in didactic lectures in the morning followed by hands on training in the afternoon. Learners will understand how to use FDA approved sclerosants for various cosmetic vein indications and will also gain a proficiency in the administration as well. The purpose of the training is to help learners provide enhanced patient care to those who present themselves with various medical and cosmetic vein conditions. Procedures which have not been taught in their previous medical education. Learning Outcomes: • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate who will maximally benefit from the Aesthetic Procedures and will also acquire the technical skills to perform such skills to benefit patients aesthetically. • To educate physicians further concerning their base knowledge of venous anatomy and pathophysiology of medical and aesthetic venous disease. Improve their diagnostic skills concerning medical associated venous disease and improve patient outcomes. • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate for cosmetic sclerotherapy through physical examination and be able to administer treatments in a safe and efficacious manner for greater patient satisfaction. Educational Objectives: • Practice procedures such as cosmetic sclerotherapy injections competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications. • Apply and understand the generally accepted protocols for the administration of the (2) FDA Approved sclerosants for aesthetic indications (i.e. unwanted arterioles, telangiectasias, and reticular veins).
