We Provide the Most Comprehensive Dermal Filler Training
The dermal filler market continues to grow every year and with over 94% of the soft augmentation filler market being the commercial hyaluronic acid products (HA) adding these safe, simple to perform injection procedures is beneficial to any healthcare professional looking to expand their skills or integrate within their practice. Worldwide, the global dermal filler market is 2x greater than the Botulinum Toxin sales. With over 17 years' experience and a record of successfully graduating over 30,000 medical professionals (Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Dentists and other licensed healthcare professionals) can be assured that our Comprehensive Dermal Filler Training will give you everything you are looking for in a CME workshop. To start, you will thoroughly understand how to differentiate from among the variety of dermal fillers available and know which product will best suit your patients. This workshop provides very intensive didactic material in the morning and following lunch in the afternoon you will spend ample time practicing these injections on volunteers until you are comfortable with the technique. You will be closely supervised and instructed during this time.
Our instructors have many years of experience in the field of Aesthetics and will share with you their "Pearls" on injecting Dermal Fillers. There is more to learning to perform these procedures than just knowing the protocols, dosages, and prices. This is where our experience as an educational organization will benefit you.
As part of our commitment to excellence, Empire continually updates and improves our programs; we have done this since our inception in 1998. The Dermal Filler Training workshop has been updated and improved and now includes additional, more advanced, procedures you can take home (or to your practice). So, in addition to learning how to inject Naso Labial folds and Lips you will now understand how to perform the “liquid face lift” for cheek enhancement and other facial contouring procedures. To truly maximize the benefits of using these procedures, why not learn as much as you can about Fillers from the start?
Included in the course is training on blunt tip cannulas which allow for additional areas of the face where traditional needles are contraindicated. The blunt tip cannula training will train you on the various sizes, lengths, and facial features that can be utilized using cannulas for the injection as well as the benefits of reduced bruising and the elimination of possible occlusion of vessels. Blunt tip cannulas are available for the hands-on portion of the training and is utilized within the program.
It is estimated that there are over 60 million Americans that make up the "Baby Boomer" market for aesthetics and the need for aesthetic procedures will continue to rise up until the year 2025. Soft tissue augmentation procedures, specifically dermal fillers, are the second most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure performed in the United States annually with over 6 million injections. The reason for the popularity of dermal fillers is the semi-permanent nature of the procedure which yields instant results that have long term results while softening or eliminating folds and wrinkles for a number of facial features your patients will present to you. The varieties of HA dermal filler products now available allow for immediate correction of these areas of deficit and can improve certain facial features as well as the signs of aging. The average professional fee or profit to administer the various dermal filler products can range from $350 to over $400 per syringe.
Typical for other Empire Medical workshops such as our Comprehensive Botox Workshop, the Dermal Filler program is a complete certification program for physicians, nurses, dentists, and other licensed healthcare professionals whereby each attendee will be required to demonstrate their proficiency in performing these techniques after receiving extensive hands on training with live patients.
Empire Medical's Comprehensive Dermal Filler Training will prepare Physicians, Nurses, Dentists and other licensed healthcare professionals in the proper selection and application of the various HA dermal fillers such as Belotero Balance, Restylane and Juvederm Ultra. Our expert staff of physician instructor and other specialists will give you a full understanding of the facial areas, patient selection, techniques for placement, and product selection to eliminate or enhance the following areas:
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lip Enhancement (lip plumping and vermillion border)
- Submalar Hollow
- Cheek Augmentation
- Tear Trough
- Pre-jowl Sulcus
- Other Advanced Injections (i.e. hands, dimpled chin, laugh lines, etc.)
Included within the course study are specific protocols associated with each of these injections including zones of adherence and other pearls to ensure compliance and methods for you to follow a standard of care for your patients. Each of the attending healthcare professionals will participate in the “hands on sessions” in the afternoon so that they are proficient in these procedures. The afternoon course sessions are intensive and attendees are required to administer product in order to become certified. Our staff will make sure you have plenty of hands on experience to feel confident in the procedure. Incidentally, Empire Medical offers this unique guarantee that provides additional one on one instruction at no cost to you if you feel additional hands on education is needed.
Dermal Fillers is an art and a science in that you have a limited amount of product in each syringe and strategic placement of the product is imperative to get the most correction in as many places as possible to be able to achieve an overall improvement for patients. Setting patient expectations and being able to identify the various aesthetic conditions that can be corrected or improved using these soft tissue augmentation procedures will allow for you to successfully integrate these procedures within your practice.
