An introductory facial dermal filler course. Learn how to cautiously add facial volume and reduce deep facial lines and folds with dermal fillers. Level 4 is a comprehensive facial dermal filler course that reviews the anatomy, injection treatments and results of cases in Level 1 through 3, and presents them in combination with dermal fillers to complete the 3D analysis and rejuvenation of lost volume with predictable results.
This course proudly welcomes Dr. Kimit Rai as the Clinical Director.
Level 4 includes an online component (20 hrs), plus an extensive two-day clinical session held in Vancouver, BC.
The online portion of Level 4 includes five sections:
Learn how to use dermal filler to add volume to lips, cheeks, deep facial lines and folds. Level 4 begins with a review of how advanced techniques of botulinum toxin therapy are used in the mid and lower face to relax the muscles. Repeated treatment with botulinum toxin diminishes the subconscious habits that resulted in lines, depressions, lumps and bumps and can prolong the results of dermal filler.
The clinical portion of Level 4 includes a two-day hands-on session always held on a Friday and Saturday.
Dr. Roberts & Dr. Rai provide an in-depth review of anatomy focused on the of the mid-face and lower face. In this integrative skull & cadaver lab, learn how surface features and bony landmarks relate to underlying musculature.
Day 2 is an advanced clinical hands-on practicum where you have the opportunity to watch a live demonstration and then inject dermal filler on your own Level 2 offers you the most clinically-based course within the industry. Our goal is to maximize your hands-on experience so that you are confident providing treatment the first day back in your own practice. As such, you should have the opportunity to inject 8+ patients. On Day 2 (Saturday), you will be scheduled to see patients all day in an operatory alongside a dedicated Instructor with four to five other practitioners. We work diligently to schedule the clinic with as many patient models as possible for experience and benefit. As such, each practitioner is required to provide at least one patient model for aesthetic upper face treatment or therapeutic treatment. You will participate in the PTIFA Marking Template on each model in your operatory, and will also have the opportunity to inject a specific area on each patient. This maximizes your hands-on experience in a controlled environment, and provides you the opportunity to inject a variety of tissue types and treat 8+ cases. Pati. Each practitioner must provide at least one patient model for treatment (and brining multiple patients is highly recommended).
Level 4 includes an online didactic section (20 hours + exam), and 1.5-days of hands-on (12 hours). Level 4 includes 32 CE/CME credits upon successful completion of the hands-on session. Upon registration, access to the online Level 4 course materials is provided for one year.
