Advanced Injectable Training for the Experts, by the Experts
Learn advanced cosmetic techniques immediately with unlimited online video viewing.
Developed by Cynthia Elliott, M.D., ExpertEsthetics provides both hands-on as well as online video-based medical esthetic injection training for advanced practitioners. Online video training is unique in that it's true learning on demand, when and where you want it. Designed to maximize your time, this innovative training model is geared toward helping you achieve specific goals without having to travel or sit through unnecessary topics.
Online video training provides detailed instructions you won't find from watching demonstrations or YouTube. Each ExpertEsthetics video segment focuses on a specific facial area and technique, featuring a close-up, narrated description of the specific procedure you select. This specialized approach is an ideal choice for the practitioner who is already performing esthetic injections but would like to refine their skills in new techniques.
The dermal filler techniques are applicable to all current dermal fillers and the instructions clarify whether a 27-gauge filler (Radiesse, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, or Perlane) is recommended for the technique being demonstrated or a 30-gauge filler (Juvederm Ultra XC, Restylane, or Prevelle) would give the best results in that area. Each video also summarizes the average estimated amount of filler needed for each area as well as recommended needle lengths.
Learn From Experts
Cynthia Elliott, M.D. is an expert in the field of cosmetic medicine and is the owner of Skinspirations, a practice devoted exclusively to aesthetic medicine. Dr. Elliott has done over 4,000 dermal filler treatments and over 7,000 Botox Cosmetic treatments, with 75% of her practice devoted to injectables alone. Even though she uses most of the dermal fillers available currently in the U.S., Allergan, the company that makes Botox® Cosmetic & Juvederm, awarded Dr. Elliott Platinum Plus status for being one of the busiest injectors of their products in the country.
Because of her reputation, multiple aesthetic medical companies including Allergan, the makers of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm, have requested that she teach her techniques to other practitioners. Dr. Elliott has been designated an Expert Trainer for Suneva Medical (the makers of Artefill). Artefill is a semipermanent dermal filler that can only be administered by injectors who have been certified by a Suneva trainer.
Dr. Elliott is also a faculty instructor forSetting Up Aesthetic Success: Hands-On Injector Training programs, sponsored by the University of California, Irvine, and Stratamed. These programs provide hands-on injection training to dermatology and plastic surgery residents. Since 2006 she has provided more than 250 practitioners with hands-on training in proper techniques for fillers and neuromodulators.
"I just wanted to take a moment & thank you once again for the training session yesterday. I really felt that I learned some very valuable techniques. I plan on implementing them immediately." Dr. M. Hopkins
In addition to teaching, Dr. Elliott is a Speaker for the Allergan Facial Aesthetics Program. She's written multiple newspaper and online articles about cosmetic medicine and has been featured as a go-to expert on 10 Connects News.
Corinn Ziegler, PA-C, is another ExpertEsthetics trainer with extensive experience in both injectable procedures & teaching. Like Dr. Elliott, she was chosen by several companies to train other practitioners in injectable techniques because of her experience & reputation for results.

ExpertEsthetics' Online Aesthetic Injection Videos are Technique-Specific & Convenient
Although there are excellent training workshops available, up until now it has been impossible to find an immediate, convenient way to learn the most advanced techniques. Dr. Elliott found that many of the physicians and other aesthetic injectors who were interested in having her provide dermal filler training were already experienced and only wanted demonstrations of 1 or 2 specific techniques. Since there was no other way to get this experience they'd have to schedule a date in advance and take time out of their usual office hours to arrange a personal workshop.
"I wish that I had access to video clips demonstrating advanced aesthetic medical techniques when I was trying to learn them," Dr. Elliott says. "Instead, I had to travel to conferences to see live demonstrations of what usually turned out to be basic techniques I had already mastered. Either that or I'd buy training DVDs that were also too basic or photographed too poorly to really see how the procedure was done. Now, combining the tips and wisdom I gathered from some of the best injectors in the world - along with trial and error in my daily practice over the last 9 years - I'm thrilled to be producing specific, detailed demonstrations of the techniques I'm most frequently requested to teach in person."
