Lower Face Cannula Course Overview

The Lower face Cannula training is the second course that practitioners typically take in their training journey after they have completed the Dual Intro to Toxin and Dermal Filler Training. Injectors already practicing in the field using primarily needles will also find this course valuable. While all aesthetic practitioners require the knowledge of how to use a needle to administer dermal filler, many choose to learn the cannula technique. The cannula technique has many advantages and has been shown to reduce swelling and bruising while increasing patient safety. This course will cover all areas included in our Basic Filler Training Course but does so using the cannula.
