Conference Injection Workshop
Dermal filler selection, as well as the skills to use it, is crucial for a subtle but optimal enhancement of the lips and jawline. There are two main fillers, hyaluronic acid (HA) and polyacrylamide (PA), which are widely available. HA is used most frequently due to the sheer number of reports worldwide confirming its safety and efficacy. There are many commercial preparations of these fillers, each with their own safety and efficacy profiles. In addition to choice of dermal filler material, a comprehensive understanding of both the anatomy of the perioral region and jawline as well as specific injection site techniques are foundational in performing effective facial augmentation. It is important that clinicians planning to perform injections for these facial areas are aware of the key anatomical features and appropriate techniques for optimal results.
Because of the increasing need for these minimally invasive procedures and due to current gaps in practical training, a live, hands-on workshop at SBS 2022 will give clinicians an opportunity to receive education about adequate injection techniques, as well as clinical insights from renowned leaders in the industry.
What to Expect
This course offers facial anatomy instruction and comprehensive training in dermal filler injection techniques for rejuvenation of the lip and jawline. The hands-on injection workshop allows participants to see and understand anatomic structures of the face through cadaver prosection and adopt dermal filler injection techniques under the formal instruction of expert faculty.
