Morning Anatomy Laboratory (Saturday and Sunday)
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. These sessions will be augmented by live injection demonstrations to provide clinical context.
Electives (2 sessions)
Choice of two of the following elective workshops:
  • Practical, consistent, high-quality photography for the aesthetic clinician:
    A hands-on skills session with your mobile device

  • Skin Care: What it means for Your Patient and Your Practice

  • Beyond Neuromodulators and Dermal Fillers: “Currently Playing and Coming Attractions”

  • Sharpening your Patient Assessment Skills:
    Essential for Optimal Outcomes and Key to a Successful Practice

Afternoon Hands-On Workshops (Saturday and Sunday)
Several specialty-focus workshops on Saturday and Sunday from which to choose.
>3 years’ experience
Advanced Cannula Technique
An innovative addition to the aesthetic injector’s toolbox, these blunt tip microcannulas are designed to provide excellent results with less bruising, swelling, pain and other more serious complications (such as ischemia 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. A variety of different microcannulas will be provided for your use during the workshop. However, please remember to bring your dermal fillers and other supplies with you to the workshop.

Toxins ONLY
Botulinum toxin type A (neuromodulator) injection remains the most common aesthetic procedure in the US. It is the most popular non-surgical procedure for women and men. These advanced workshops will provide insight and expert instruction on the latest uses for neuromodulators - going far beyond the traditional anatomic sites. Instruction and one-on-one hands-on training will focus exclusively on botulinum toxin injections for facial aesthetics.

Rejuvenating the Lower Face - Lips to Neck
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 course specializes in the use of neurotoxins, HA fillers and Deoxycholic acid.

Periorbital Area
The eyes are considered the focal point of the face, and we now have the products and techniques to make a meaningful improvement in this extremely important area. Provides practical instruction and expert mentoring on improving injection techniques in the periorbital area using both toxins and HA-fillers.

Male Facial Aesthetics and Rejuvenation
In recent years, the number of men seeking aesthetic procedures has been steadily growing. There are many possible reasons to explain the increased demand - including a desire to achieve a more youthful appearance, to elevate self-esteem, as well as the need to compete in today’s work force - and the trend is likely to continue. This workshop will focus exclusively on the aging male face and address important differences between the genders - both anatomic and aesthetic. This course will include the use of neuromodulators and HA-based fillers to rejuvenate the male face.

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 per hands-on workshop (Please ask your model to arrive at 2:00 PM)
  • 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.
