The Aging Process

From an aesthetics perspective, facial aging can be understood as a progressive and predictable loss of volume and skin elasticity. Understanding how the skin naturally ages can greatly benefit you as a medical professional, and it will help you perform aesthetic procedures in a way that will achieve the most natural look. 

How To Use Your Equipment

Knowing how to use the tools at your disposal lessens your chance of error and allows you to do your best work. You will be provided with syringes and two different types of needles. It is important to know which equipment is necessary in different areas of the face for specific treatments. Giving your patient what they want in a way that is effective and safe for both you and them is very important.

Injection Techniques

In the Facial Mannequin Training program, you will learn a range of techniques to give your patients their desired look. You won’t just learn how to properly mark the skin—you will also learn the techniques required to achieve any look. You will learn how to mark and inject virtually every area of the face and gain a better understanding of which techniques will be the most effective in each instance.

Facial Analysis

It is important to know how to properly treat your patients without running the risk of complications or poor performance. In this aesthetic course, you will train with a facial mannequin to recreate the feeling of administering injectables to a patient. The facial mannequin offers the look and texture of human tissue, so you will become accustomed to the way the skin feels and responds before treating your actual patients. The mannequin will also aid you in familiarizing yourself with surface marking and injection techniques, which we previously discussed.

The Clinical Uses of Botox And Dermal Fillers

In this program, you will learn the multiple ways botox and dermal fillers can be used for non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Because the face is constructed of multiple regions with various nerve blockings, it is important to understand if Botox or dermal fillers will work best in a specific area.
