I have taken three courses and have been thoroughly pleased with all of them. The basic and advanced Botulinum Toxin Type A/ Filler course I attended with Jill not only gave me all of the basics I needed to build a successful injectable practice, but gave me the confidence that I would have a support system in the rare event that I had an additional question after the training course. The sclerotherapy course with Terri Harper was also very beneficial. In the two years I have been practicing sclero in my practice I have had to contact Terri two times with a question and she has answered within a matter of minutes and offered additional help in the case of further issues. I could not be happier with the training and follow up support I receive with AAI and the talented staff I have met along the way. I would highly recommend these classes and this fantastic group of professionals to anyone.
