As the primary basis of facial rejuvenation, the midface is a fundamental treatment area to master. Descent from the cheeks and tear troughs leads to subsequent heaviness and advanced ageing effects on the lower face. Many practitioners often treat the cheeks with needle only and in isolation from the tear trough due to little available hands-on training. This inevitably creates limitations in the ability to deal with variable face shapes and anatomy.
This course is designed to equip practitioners with the knowledge and skills to safely and effectively treat the midface to give their patients industry-leading results.
Combination techniques will be taught covering in-depth anatomy and theory followed by plenty of hands-on practical training on live models in a real-life clinic setting.
Students will see and treat the midface area of 6 models as part of the course with a range of different face shapes, complexities, and techniques, combining both needle and cannula.
We have designed the course with a hybrid of techniques to create a midface structural reshaping approach, beyond the midface filling techniques of the past. This improves patient results as well as treatment safety and reduction in vascular complications.
The midface is a gateway area to ageing and once treated has a profound effect on supporting the upper face as well as lifting the lower face and midline features. Practitioners able to perform these techniques will further patient attraction and retention in practice by delivering high-impact results with minimal volumes of filler.
Expansion of techniques and skill also maximises your recruit-ability in larger clinics that want to be able to offer these highly skilled treatments. Comprehensive demonstrations and in-depth hands-on training by highly experienced practitioners will be provided, with more time allocated to practice than theory.
At Derma Medical, high-quality training is of paramount importance, so small groups and full guidance will be given to make sure you leave our rooms confident and ready to practice freely. Delegates should be comfortable with the basic injection techniques prior to attending this course and be ready to take their clinical skills to the next level.
