Advanced Dermal Filler Course Overview

The Advanced Dermal Filler Course is usually taken after the Dual Introduction to Toxin and Basic Filler and the Lower Face Cannula course. It is also suited to individuals who have been injecting for some time in their clinics and who want to add in the advanced areas of temples and tear troughs. This program is highly recommended to further increase filler injection skills and is best suited for injectors having some prior injection experience. Extensive pre-course online material is provided to you prior to a personalized hands-on injection training day.
