Frequently Asked Questions
Do I get CME credits for taking the online courses?
Yes. Upon completion of the comprehensive, 10-module Neurotoxin and Filler Bundled Course, practitioners will earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. If desired, the 5-module neurotoxin and filler courses can be purchased à la carte and will earn practitioners AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Can the two courses be taken separately?
Yes, you can purchase the comprehensive Neurotoxin or Filler courses individually. If you purchase either the Gold, Platinum, or Diamond bundled package, you can still take the Neurotoxin and Filler courses separately – and at your own pace – as CME credits are awarded after each individual course.
Do I get a certificate, especially for my CV and for professional insurance proof of training and experience/qualifications?
Yes, you will receive an official certificate of completion after each course indicating the total number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ earned.
How do the courses work?
You can take a look at our comprehensive, user-friendly training interface via our virtual tour HERE.
Do I have access to additional course materials, study guide, resources?
Yes. If you purchased the Platinum or Diamond package of the 10-module Neurotoxin and Filler Bundled Course , you will receive access to downloadable materials that will empower you to quickly and effectively integrate injectables into your own practice. However, regardless of which package you purchase, each course comes with additional recommended reading materials – including third-party articles. As a member of Seiler Skin Aesthetic Institute, you also will have the ability to return to any of the module sections for review or additional clarity.
How long will I have access to the courses?
Once you’ve purchased a course, your access to the training videos and supplemental learning materials never expires.
Do I have access to you for follow up questions?
The Diamond membership for the Neurotoxin and Filler Bundled Course comes with a one-hour phone or online video discussion with Dr. Seiler to ask follow-up questions. You can even present patients to him to inquire about his treatment recommendations. Unfortunately, Dr. Seiler cannot accommodate individual discussions with non-Diamond members. In addition to seeing patients daily at Seiler Skin, Dr. Seiler dedicates all his available time and resources to developing valuable, supplemental training content (e.g., webinars, group discussions, Q&A sessions, etc.) to support his online comprehensive Neurotoxin and Filler courses. He also has immersed himself in creating his next comprehensive online training course – stay tuned for more information!
Do you have a course I can take to better understand SSAI and its training modules?
Yes! You can register for our free, one-hour course “The Potential Dangers of Filler: Addressing the Elephant in the Room.” This course walks through the potential dangers of filler and how to avoid/treat them. Upon completion of the course, you’ll be eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
What do I do when a patient is different than the ones we saw in the trainings?
The top concern we’ve heard from other practitioners who’ve taken other online or hands-on training courses is that they only are shown how to treat a limited number and type of patient. This is why we focus heavily on demonstrating injection treatments across a wide range of patients (various ages, ethnicities, genders, skin types, and concerns) in the lecture, whiteboard, and clinical sections of each module. We fully understand the importance and value of increasing your confidence and proficiency in treating any type of patient you may encounter in your own practice. If you anticipate having follow-up questions, or would gain value from asking Dr. Seiler for his opinion on treating specific patients, we recommend purchasing Diamond Membership for the Neurotoxin and Filler Bundled Course. This will provide you with a one-hour phone or online video discussion with Dr. Seiler to ask questions and even present patients to him for discussion. We also advise that you follow us on LinkedIn, where we will periodically post answers to commonly asked questions, videos featuring new treatment demonstrations, and more.
Are Seiler Skin Aesthetic Institute’s online courses designed to replace hands-on trainings?
Our online Neurotoxin and Filler Training courses are extremely comprehensive and designed to empower practitioners of all experience levels with the confidence and proficiency needed to safely and effectively treat any type of patient and/or concern. However, this is not a guarantee that after completing our course(s) practitioners new to cosmetic injections will be able to comfortably treat every patient they may encounter. As you will learn in our trainings, cosmetic injections are complex and have associated potential complications. For some practitioners, additional hands-on injection training may be required. For others, these courses will provide everything they need (and more) to begin offering these services. For highly experienced practitioners, our online trainings will take their skillsets to the next level by learning a better way to assess the patient/face, as well as by learning Dr. Seiler’s advanced injection techniques. Experienced practitioners likely will be able to immediately implement these philosophies and techniques into their own practices. As with any training (online or hands-on), much is dependent on the practitioner themselves.
Are there plans to create more courses in the future?
Yes! We launched with Filler and Neurotoxin courses as these skills are crucial to helping one become an expert injector and provide superior patient results We have plans to release additional modules around PRP and laser treatments. You can stay up-to-date on the latest SSAI news by subscribing to our email newsletter at the bottom banner of our site.
Can I refer other people to the course?
Yes! We offer the ability to earn commissions by referring our training courses to you colleagues and peers. To learn more, click HERE.
Do the courses certify people to inject?
Our online training courses have been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). You will receive a certificate showing completion of the course and the hours of credit received, not one giving “certification/permission” to perform the procedure as the authority to inject patients varies on a state-by-state basis.
What if I experience technical difficulties while taking the course?
Please email [email protected] with any problems or technical difficulties you are experiencing. We will do our best to respond to you as quickly as possible.
Can you provide testimonials on your courses?
Of course! Find out what others who’ve been trained by Dr. Warren Seiler have to say HERE.
What language do the training courses come in?
At this time, all courses are only available in English.
Does SSAI have terms and conditions?
Yes, our full terms and conditions can be found HERE.
