Aesthetic medicine is a developing clinical subspecialty, primarily due to the popularity of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments meant to enhance a patient’s physical appearance. Facial aesthetic treatments using neurotoxins and soft tissue fillers have come a long way since they were first introduced. While main indications related to facial aesthetic products continue to be localized for use on the upper face, treating the lower face with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers is now a common practice among aesthetic professionals. To achieve safety, success, and patient satisfaction, practitioners must be well versed on the anatomy and function of the lower face, and understand how to perform specific procedures that not only improve the lower face, but a patient’s overall appearance as well. In this educational gaming-based web activity, knowledge is tested on strategies that optimize patient management.
