Botulinum Toxin Complications
How to Manage & Avoid Botulinum Toxin Complications
Dr Tim says:
“It’s my mission to increase patient safety in an unregulated industry.”
The most stressful situation you can be in as you build your practice is to be confronted with an unhappy patient who you treated with Botox and not know exactly what to say or do to stop things escalating out of your control.
Of course, I’m talking complications and it’s our worst nightmare. As a trainer, I know that many of you lose sleep over complications. When that Whatsapp message pops up or the phone rings from that person you just treated, part of you always thinks the worst.
It’s normal to have that anxiety – that this time you’ll be out of your depth, you won’t know what to do or to say, you don’t know how to solve it and you won’t be able to stop their distress or to even stop them from being angry with you, possibly slating you online or even hurting you with an insurance claim.
And worst of all, you won’t know what to do to avoid it happening again. So, every new patient you treat becomes a source of anxiety.
It takes years to get enough experience in complications through your own practice to become proficient. And while you wait for proficiency you lose sleep. It’s not enough just to know the facts, you need to know both the knowledge and the processes to feel ready for the inevitable complications even the best practitioners will get.
And this is the first goal of my online Botulinum Toxin Complications training. I’ve structured the course to prepare you for this eventuality and give you a structured process to go through that gives you everything you need – not only to manage the problems but to diagnose, explain and avoid them ever happening again.
You’ll see every problem broken down into 4 key pillars;
- Understanding what has caused the problem or the aetiology
- Diagnosing it accurately
- Knowing how to manage it and what to do to treat it well
- How to avoid it happening again in the future
A huge part of solving the situation is about how to solve the problem from the patient’s perspective. They need certainty about what has happened and why, what will happen next and what can be done to avoid it happening again in the future.
Who is it For?
SkinViva Training eLearning courses are aimed at medical professionals and do not replace the need for practical face-to-face training, which this course is designed to complement. This course is not suitable for non-medical practitioners and all medical practitioners should also seek practical hands-on training first, before purchasing eLearning.
Tim’s tutor style and the practical technique that he has developed and broken down into steps, has very quickly enabled me to advance my skills in lip enhancement. The little tips that are unique to Dr Tim make a huge aesthetic difference to the lips.
You get extremely thorough theory information, which includes initial consultation advice, right through to aftercare instructions and charts on management of side effects and complications. This differs from other courses that I have been which have solely concentrated on technique alone. I know that I am going to be referring to my manual for years to come! [Taken from a google review]
I have had two amazing 1-2-1 training sessions with Dr Tim Pearce. He is an amazing aesthetic doctor with his eye for detail and fantastic work ethic!
I feel very fortunate to have been trained by him – he’s friendly, patient, and passionate about his work.
He has instilled me with knowledge and confidence. I can honestly say I have finished both my training sessions at SkinViva buzzing and inspired to offer the quality treatment he does. What’s also great is that I know I’m not on my own, I can contact him anytime I have questions about treatments with my clients.
Without any hesitation I can recommend him to anyone interested in training in aesthetics.
Competent, confident and Safe.
I recently attended had training with Dr Tim Pearce. It was very hands-on and informative with plenty of models to get experience. Dr Tim has exceptional knowledge of anatomy and aesthetics and took time to explain things in detail with plenty of diagrams and examples. The resources I received prior to the course has been a valuable resource. I felt confident, competent and safe on completion of the session. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a course in facial aesthetics.
This was a fantastic course. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with people who needed to learn this.

Lip Masters Course
Fabulous resource. Real, practical advice – invaluable in dealing with the huge variety of lips presenting for treatment. The quality of videos and close ups is excellent.
I’ve attended lots of advanced training over the last 12 months and this really is value for money. I particularly liked the 2 types of filler approach and hyalase with cannula. Thank you and great work once again.

I have just completed the online e-learning for the Lip Masters course! I can assuringly say – that with the other aspects of Tim has promised it is definitely worth the price! In fact I’d be happy to pay for the videos alone for the price as his clear expertise and techniques for tackling various lip issues have been invaluable. If you’re umming and arring – I’d say definitely go for it.
I have done many lips but have learnt a few tips and tricks that I will now incorporate into my practice. I’m looking forward to the other aspects of mentoring and the instagym! Many thanks for sorting this out. It is evident from a mile away how much bloody effort it must have taken to put this together and I’m truly appreciative for this hard work and on going passion to improve us as practitioners and medical professionals! Thanks Tim!
