We Provide the Most Comprehensive Dermal Filler Training

The dermal filler market continues to grow every year and with over 94% of the soft Dermal filler market being the 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 20 years' experience in Dermal Filler training and a record of successfully graduating over 100,000 medical professionals (Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Dentists and other licensed healthcare professionals) you can be assured that our Comprehensive Dermal Filler workshops 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. Learn how to evaluate Dermal Fillers based on their G-Prime and be able to determine the appropriate product choice and placement of an HA dermal filler to match specific patient needs and indications. 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? 

Recommended Preparation:

Advanced Facial Anatomy Cadaver Workshop for Aesthetics (LIVE OR VIDEO PROGRAM): A requirement for all non-core (other than Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists) attendees who wish to participate in any Facial Aesthetic Hands On Course. This valuable program will serve to help practitioners avoid complications while performing Aesthetic injections and procedures. Learn from “the best” how to avoid poor outcomes, complications, as well as legal and malpractice issues.

Empire strongly urges participants to complete either the live Facial Cadaver Workshop* OR the Video ON Demand* program which will satisfy the requirement. The Video ON Demand* program can be viewed at any time from your "".

Graduates will receive a Certificate indicating their completion of this Advanced Facial Cadaver Course and a written statement on each Certificate earned in Aesthetics. Certificates should be submitted to your malpractice carrier.

The program is approved for 9 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

Dr. Ramtin Kassir - Facial Anatomy Training


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 Botulinum Toxin 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.

Our Newest Training: Master Injector Series-1 Practicum™
Next course June 23 Los Angeles

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.)

Small Group Training with Physician Supervision

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.

Throughout the course study and hands on sessions you will be provided with invaluable information and our specialists who will be there every step of the way as you learn and master these easy to administer procedures. All attendees will need to participate in the hands on sessions to demonstrate proficiency in performing these procedures to receive their Certificate of Completion.

Pearls on Injecting the Lips - Dr. Rebecca Gelber

Join the thousands of physicians nationwide who have successfully integrated dermal fillers into their practice and enjoy the benefits of these aesthetic cash basis procedures. There is little or no capital cost associated with these procedures and the demand for dermal filler procedures continue to rise. Patient satisfaction is very high for injectables such as Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers as many of the same patients within your practice will receive both. Receive the instruction needed and give your patients what they are asking expanding your practice into aesthetics.

Dermal Fillers are by far the most enjoyable, most rewarding procedure in Aesthetics. True, this is just an opinion but you will soon learn that injecting Fillers is probably the only cosmetic treatment that gives such a rewarding result in the shortest amount of time. As mentioned, you will learn how to differentiate and use the most common fillers that cosmetic practices are using throughout the US but we will also give you the foundation to begin using some of the more advanced fillers such as Sculptra and Belafil. Even before you can begin with this particular procedure, the company will want to make sure you have a certain level of proficiency with all the Hyaluronic Acid products first. As you begin seeing more and more of these cosmetic procedures, you will see that you can offer patients even more benefits with some of these other products compared to just the traditional HA products.  


Upon successful completion of the Comprehensive Dermal Filler Workshop each of the attendees should possess a thorough understanding of the following:

  • Practice and perform procedures such as dermal filler injections competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications with these treatments.
  • Apply generally accepted protocols for the administration of the HA dermal fillers for various aesthetic conditions. Learn the proper guidelines for the acquisition, patient charting, administration issues (i.e. medical intake forms, informed consents) and the corrective measures for adverse events.
  • Assess who is a candidate for the dermal filler procedure, patient benefits, and anatomical areas that dermal fillers are acceptable for treatment. Increase patient awareness and offer enhanced patient care in relation to the dermal filler procedure and their desires aesthetically.
  • Identify the mechanism of action and basic facial anatomy, differences between the product characteristics and areas of injection, patient preferences, managing expectations, and after care for follow up after the dermal filler procedure.

Additional Learning Objectives
