Full-Day Intensive Workshop

Program Description:
This all-day program includes a unique morning session in the anatomy lab (featuring cadaver head prosections), as well as one of our standard, full-length, PALETTE hands-on workshops in the afternoon.

During the morning session, faculty will guide you through expert prosections that exquisitely demonstrate structural changes associated with aging as well as clinically relevant anatomy to help you improve injection technique and minimize complications.

The afternoon session will consist of one of the following hands-on workshops:

Level I:
<1 year experience

Provides practical instruction on nonsurgical facial rejuvenation approaches in the upper and lower face along with expert mentoring on improving injection techniques. This session specializes in the use of neuromodulators and HA fillers.

Please note: Participants must have passed the online prerequisite CME Activity “Anatomical Context of Facial Aesthetics” in order to participate in this workshop.

Cannula Technique:
≥2 years' experience with dermal fillers

Focusing on the use of cannulas to inject dermal fillers. Flexible, microcannulas, an important addition to the aesthetic injector’s toolbox, are designed to provide excellent results with less bruising, swelling, pain and other more serious complications (such as schemia and possible necrosis) than conventional needles. They are quite effective and safe for dermal filler placement over a large area from a single entry point, resulting in greater patient satisfaction.
 
Please note: Participants must have passed the online prerequisite CME Activity “Anatomical Context of Facial Aesthetics” in order to participate in this workshop.

Rejuvenating the Lower Face—Lips to Neck:
>2 years' experience with dermal fillers

Provides advanced instruction on nonsurgical facial rejuvenation approaches in the lips and perioral area, jawline, chin and platysma along with expert mentoring on improving injection techniques. Advanced techniques for lower face rejuvenation will be addressed. This session specializes in the use of neuromodulators, HA fillers and Deoxycholic acid.
 
Please note: Participants must have passed the online prerequisite CME Activity “Anatomical Context of Facial Aesthetics” in order to participate in this workshop.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the program, participants will be better able to:

  • Interpret principles of facial anatomy and physiology, including gender- and ethnic-relevant differences and the effects of aging, in order to assess the need for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation
  • Perform comprehensive and individualized patient assessment and manage expectations – in the context of relevant cultural and gender aesthetic considerations − in order to improve patient satisfaction
  • Interpret areas of muscle activity and facial volume deficits as they contribute to aesthetic appearance, in order to properly target injection sites
  • Demonstrate injection techniques for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, in order to assure the most beneficial product placement
  • Improve injection skills, in order to optimize patient outcomes
  • Incorporate strategies for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation in younger patients, in order to optimize the quality of outcomes over time
  • Recognize the normal and atypical anatomical positions of critical vascular and neurologic structures within the face, in order to assure patient safety and avoid/minimize treatment complications

Hands-On Injection Training Workshop Requirements:

Attendees will have the option to participate or observe during the hands-on training. If you are planning to participate, you must provide the following on-site:

  • One model (Please ask your model to arrive at 1:00PM)
  • A valid medical license (for the state in which the program takes place)
  • A copy of your credentials documenting your current academic status as a resident or fellow.
  • PLEASE NOTE: If you do not provide us with these Mandatory Documents, you will not be able to participate in the workshop.

Target Audience

The program has been developed for dermatologists, plastic surgeons and ophthalmologists as well as other physicians, nurses and physician assistants who have an interest in gaining and /or increasing their knowledge and technical skill to perform facial aesthetic procedures with injectable agents.
