Learning Objectives

After this course, practitioners will better optimize patient outcomes (safety and efficacy) with the use of both Cosmetic Neuromodulators and Injectable HA Fillers in targeted areas of the face by being able to:

  • Employ different injection techniques and determine optimal injection sites for both needles and cannulas in each of the targeted areas.
  • Employ injection technique protocols to maximize patient safety.
  • Employ or direct emergency response protocols if required.
  • Accurately and consistently identify the veins, arteries, and nerves in the danger zones within the targeted areas of the face and the associated potential complications, (vascular occlusion, visual disturbances, nodules, granulomas, hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis) that can arise. Emphasis will be on eyes, lips, nose, and jawline.
  • Differentiate between the classes of injectable fillers with respect to viscosity, gel hardness, degree of cross linking, extrusion force, concentration, G Prime and duration of presence in the skin to select the most appropriate filler for the specific procedure, skin type, injection site, and injection device.
  • Design holistic, 3-dimensional treatment plans accounting for gender and ethnic diversity in facial structure and skin types.
  • Recite the signs and symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder to identify patients seeking excessive, unnecessary treatments with an aim to arrest the behaviour.
  • Design post-treatment plans and follow-up requirements for patients that are aligned with established protocols and reflect differences in skin types.

 

The specific goal for each rotation will vary as per the needs of the presenting patient but broad surrogate markers for successfully achieving the learning objectives include:

  • Participant selects the correct needle gauges.
  • Participant accurately landmarks the face with lines/dots accounting for gender differences.
  • Participant correctly draws the volume loss.
  • Participant injects into the correct skin layer for each procedure, target area and device.
  • Participant determines the correct unit range and or volume for each procedure and target area of the face.

PLEASE NOTE: Students must attend Foundations of Aesthetic Medicine or an equivalent course before registering for Level II: Advanced Injectables. In addition, all students must complete a minimum of 30 Neuromodulator and 30 Injectable HA Filler treatments prior to attending the hands-on training. 

Elevate your skill set during this course to discover advanced injecting techniques! This course reviews the basics of neuromodulators and injectable HA fillers before diving into advanced facial anatomy and aesthetic injecting areas. This course teaches advanced neuromodulator and filler techniques while emphasizing the importance of full facial assessments.

Areas in this course include, but are not limited to, tear troughs, temples, jawline, hands, SQ cheeks, neck, and more. We do discuss areas including nose, glabellar, forehead, and eyelids. However, these areas are extremely dangerous and injectors should ensure they are confident in all other areas of injecting before attempting these areas of the face. 

Our team has been training medical professionals in the art and science of neuromodulators and hyaluronic acid fillers for over 10 years. Many of our students wish to progress to advanced areas, so we have developed the Advanced Injectables Course.
