May 2019: With five very nice colleagues from previous courses it was almost family. This made it even easier to fully adapt the curriculum to the participants*. In the end we had fun as always and enough time to gain practical experience.
I have been using botulinum toxin A and hyaluronic acid products for many years. I have always adhered to the MD Codes. In the Pöseldorf Clinic it has now become a major part of my work, which again has not gone unnoticed. In 2017 I received an offer from Allergan, the world’s largest producer of botulinum toxin A (Vistabel®, Botox®) and hyaluronic acid products. I should participate in the Allergan Medical Institute (TTT) “Teach-the-Teacher” program to become a teacher in this area. I agreed, of course. Through this, a good number of very different advanced training events were learned. These included courses on injection technique, aesthetics, presentation and communication. At the top of the hit list, of course, were the training sessions with Mauricio de Maio. He is a plastic surgeon from Brazil who travels almost exclusively around the world to speak on this topic. He is in turn the inventor of the MD codes, which for me are the most complete and best method for treatment with botulinum toxin A and hyaluronic acids.

In 2018 I was ready to give my first own courses in Hamburg. The participants and I not only achieved great results with the patients they had brought with them, and besides had a lot of fun.
