The Gold Standard in Medical Aesthetics Training

As a physician, I have spent my professional life attending continuing education events. I was recently at “the botox course”, and I found it to be the best education I have ever received. The small class size, in combination with highly educated and personable educators, was beyond compare. The information provided, supervised injection practice, and unrushed opportunities to ask questions makes me feel totally comfortable to safely start my practice with neuromodulator injections. Hats off to this team.

— DR. JOHN JEFFERY, MD, FRCPC

As a former academic physician currently retraining in aesthetic medicine, this has been my fifth injectables course from various organizational bodies across Canada, I can attest to the botox course being next level; above and beyond all others. This course offers an extensive practical component that is evidence based and patient centered. There is also an exceptional focus on anatomy, physiology and patient safety. The instructors (Nurse Becky, Nurse Mandeep and Anne) were so professional and continuously offered confidence boosting guidance and clinical pearls. Last but not least, it has been an honour to have been taught by Dr. Andrew Dargie, a true master of this artful medicine, dedicated to upholding all learners to the highest standard of practice for the benefits of patients.

I have taken a few courses in Neuromodulators and never felt confident when I left them. The Botox Course went over and above my expectations. The staff are experts in the industry with the goal of having the best injectors out there. We were provided with just the right amount of anatomy and a tonne of opportunity to inject with constructive feedback given and opportunity to ask questions in a comfortable environment. Highly highly recommend.

This was truly the greatest course I have ever attended. I did the Botox and Filler course and couldn’t be happier. It was truly a great experience for me and I have met some stunning people in the process. We were educated on anatomy in great detail and this made me comfortable to know that I can be a safe injector. The best of all is that we got a lot of hands on experience and I am comfortable injecting both botox and fillers. We were also educated and informed on best business practices and advice was given on how to get started. The educators are awesome people with expert knowledge and experience in their field and I think it is very generous of them to share years of experience in this field with us.

I can’t say enough great things about the botox course! I took the botox course as well as the filler course and I am definitely so thrilled that I invested into this education. I’ve been wanting to get into this industry for so long and believe I chose the right course to get me there! The knowledge I’ve gained as well as all the hands on experience was unlike anything else. I felt confident and supported the whole time and it was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with Dr. Dargie as well as Becky! If you have been looking for a course to take, THIS IS IT!

— KYLA YAREMCHUK, LPN

Wow. Lots of hands on practice! Dr. Dargie and his team are extremely knowledgeable and approachable. They are there to share EVERYTHING with you! Even in times of COVID, following proper procedures and protocols, we were provided with a safe and very comfortable learning environment. Time flew by fast as we had so much fun while learning about the amazing world of neuromodulators! Double thumbs up to the botox course!!!

“I can honestly say I had the absolute best treatment as a patient model at The Botox Course. It was better work than I’ve received in expensive salons and spas. Everyone was knowledgeable, confident and kind. It was a great first experience for me and I will definitely return!”

After taking the botox and filler course I knew I wanted to continue learning through this program and the amazing educators. This Fellowship program did not disappoint. Not only does this program give you the opportunity to advance your injection skills but teaches you everything else that goes along with a successful medical cosmetic clinic. Whether you are new to injectables or an experienced injector you will undoubtably learn from this program as it is tailored to your specific needs. I was given the opportunity to work with Becky at External Affairs it was a privilege to learn from such a talented injector and business woman. Her passion for the industry is evident in her teaching.

So thankful Dr. Dargie has developed such a great program to learn from the best.

“At first, I did not know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised and quite impressed. The session took place at a fabulous hotel sandwiched in the financial district of Montreal, close to a metro station making it easily accessible for career people. Courtney was lovely and kind as I filled out intake forms. The students were warm and all were doctors, nurses, or dentists etc. Dr. Dargie is extremely professional, allowing his students to truly learn on their own, providing sound reasoning for why he might disagree with their initial assessment but still providing encouragement for where they were going… he surveyed the students and guided them during the entire process, from assessment to dosage, and then injecting. I could tell Dr. Dargie had extensive experience injecting botox and felt like I was in the most excellent of hands. I felt like I bought a Ferrari with a Honda budget given the reduced cost of botox because there was some teaching involved (heck, I even enjoyed learning!) Overall I HIGHLY recommend this course to both students and ‘patients’ alike!”

“Being a first-time patient for the Botox Course, I admit I was a little nervous at the start but it came highly recommended by a friend so I signed up for both treatments, the botox and the fillers. My tension went away when I got there and met Brynn, who was very kind and informative, and took pictures of my face, as well as Dr Brittany Macdonald and her 4 scholars. Everyone was incredibly considerate and seemed very well informed about the procedures, which themselves were done very quickly. The botox treatments were surprisingly painless. I felt a couple of stings with the fillers, even though my face was numbed but it was nothing unbearable, and I was offered a fruit juice which I believe actually helped. I also want to mention that because this is a course, the procedures are very affordable for patients. It’s a win, win!

Thank you so much, everyone, I’ll be seeing you again.

“I was super anxious arriving to my appointment with The Filler Course. However, all feelings left as soon as I walked into the room with Dr. Dargie and his team. The whole experience was not only super unique but also super personable. Dr. Dargie does not only have an amazing bedside manner, but he also is an amazing instructor and it shows with his students. I recommend this program to everybody, and I will most definitely be returning!”

“I have been getting botox for over 10 years and this by far has been my best experience. I was a little hesitant on my first appointment having students inject me. But rest assured you are in good hands. Dr. Dargie is an amazing instructor as well a the rest of the team. The students are well prepared for the treatments so no need to be nervous. Being a patient model allows me to have access to treatments that I would not be able to afford otherwise. As long as they are around I will continue my botox with the team.”

“Being a patient model for this course was one of the best decisions I made! The medical staff that was teaching the course as well as those taking the course were professional, skilled, and respectful. They explained each step along the way, and always ensured my comfort and understanding. I felt I learned a lot as well. They took their time, and I felt very safe and knew I was in good hands. I would absolutely do this again. Wonderful experience. Thank you!”

This course was sensational. The online material delivered the theory at the correct level of detail for a medical professional ( I am an emergency physician) and included relevant supplementary videos. Courtney and the team ran an amazing practical day where I got lots of hand on experience consulting and injecting on diverse range of areas on both female and male patients. I would highly recommend this course and personally look forward to participating in their filler training. 

— DR. MAKRIDES, MD

Wonderful hands on learning! The instructors are fabulous, and have the patience to guide you through the day taking the time to show you the right skills to learn to be the best injectors. The day is filled with models so there is no shortage of practicing what you learned in the online course, and what you observe your instructors teaching you. Would recommend to anyone looking to take a Botox course! 

— JOLENE M., LPN

I had a great time taking this course with Andrew and Becky. It is commendable how quickly this team is able to help medical professionals feel comfortable and competent in neuromodulator injection. The course is structured beautifully which aids in the learning process. There are plenty of resources available and the learner leaves the course feeling ready to work independently.

— DR. SOPHIE, MD

Amazing course, both online and the hands on portion. Very comprehensive, tons of hands on practice with clients. The best of the best for instructors who truly care for their learners and clients. Definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting the top of the line teaching for botox treatments. 

— LYNN, LPN

I highly recommend The Botox Course. The didactic online self paced modules were easy to navigate and provided many engaging videos. Dr Dargie and his team were friendly, knowledgeable and were fantastic at answering questions I had during the entire training process. The hands on portion of the training was exceptional. Well organized with many patient models’ to facilitate learning. During the hands on training, Dr Dargie and his team were patient and provided a calm atmosphere to promote learning. I would highly recommend The Botox Course to anyone interested in injecting neuromodulators.

— ERICA E., NP

The Botox Course was fantastic! Dr. Dargie and his team were friendly, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable. The didactic portion was engaging and easy to follow, but the hands-on training is what really took the cake… injection practice began at the very beginning of the day with lots of opportunity to refine safe and effective injection techniques on multiple patient models throughout the day. There was ample time to ask questions and every member of the team was able to answer appropriately and guide us in our learning based on our individual needs. The instructor to learner ratio was great as well. Overall, I would highly recommend The Botox Course to anyone looking to begin injecting neuromodulators and/or dermal fillers. 

— JEREMY B., NP

Amazing course! Dr. Dargie, Samantha and Courtney are truly a dream team. Great online content and lots of hands on practice. I loved how the course focused on all aspects to help you become successful in the business of injecting neuromodulators. Hands on training was fantastic. Great knowledge sharing and coaching. Lots of fun! Highly recommend this course to anyone! Thank you. 

— BRITTANY V., RN

Absolutely loved this course, both the didactic and hands on training. We had loads of expert training and injecting with Dr. Dargie and Samantha demonstrating where art meets science. Kudos to Courtney who kept everything going smoothly in an incredibly busy and fun clinic. 

— JOANNA E., NP

The Botox Course was one of the best educational experiences I have had. Dr. Dargie, Dr. Macdonald, Dr. Dale and all of the support staff at the Botox course were kind, upbeat and very knowledgeable. They all made learning and consolidating the online course fun and enjoyable. I would very much recommend this course. A big thank you to all who made this course so enjoyable. 

— MURRAY C., RN

Dr. Dargie, MacDonald and Dale brought their expertise and taught injection skills based on best practice as defined by an expert panel, credible evidence and years of personal experience. They passed down knowledge and technique that can be trusted. Neuromodulator injection is a highly technical endeavor and can only be done well if taught well. This is NOT a skill one should try to master on your own. Know your injector and, more importantly, know their teacher!!!!
