Foundation Dermal Fillers Workshop
Location: 1 Leicester Avenue, Glen Waverley
Date: Sunday 5th December
Time: 9:00am to 5pm
Our Foundation Dermal Fillers Workshop aims to provide new injectors with a solid foundation to perform basic filler treatments to the lateral cheeks, anterior cheeks and lips. You will receive an introduction to different dermal fillers currently available on the market, focusing primarily on hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Filler selection and rheology of hyaluronic acid fillers will be discussed. The course will also cover complications specific to each area of filler injections, including managing and preventing serious vascular complications. You will acquire comprehensive anatomical knowledge relevant for beginners, which is meant to complement the hands-on injecting experience.Upon completion of this workshop, you should be able to start offering dermal fillers in your rooms with minimal set-up. Learning to perform dermal fillers can help you tap into the growing aesthetics industry and its increasing consumer demand, and offer an additional service to your existing patient base.
1. Online Course
After enrolling, you will receive immediate lifetime access to the online component of the workshop. You may preview the course content at the bottom of this page. You will need to review the material and pass the tests to complete the course before attending the hands-on workshop. During this process, you are encouraged to reach out with any questions. Completing this course may also help you with applying for insurance if you have not already, and deliver proper informed consent to your model prior to the practical training.
2. Hands-On Workshop
The practical workshop will cover important theory information and focus mainly on the hands-on approach of the procedure where you will have the opportunity to treat your own patient. This includes treatment consultation and planning, choosing the appropriate product tailored to your patient, taking clinical photos and much more. This is carried out in an actual medical aesthetics clinic, where health and safety standards are met according to local regulatory guidelines.
3. Ongoing Mentorship
Aesthetics training requires more than just attending a workshop. You will need to build experience in order to ensure competency. After completing the workshop, you will have 6 months access to ongoing mentorship with our team of qualified trainers so that you have someone to reach out to should any challenges arise. You may also be able to come into their aesthetics practices to observe how real in-clinic treatments are carried out. This will open up more pathways to more advanced learning and help you build confidence in offering treatments independently.
