Online Dermal Filler Training for Physicians, Dentists and Nurses Course

This 8 hour course includes 2 hours and 29 minutes of easy to follow step-by-step online training videos.

Cosmetic injections have surged in popularity because they are a minimally-invasive and non-surgical treatment to help correct the effect of the aging process and the environment on the face. Facial fillers and Botox are the two most popular injectable options to help treat common facial concerns.

Dermal fillers are used to restore volume to areas of the skin surface, particularly on the face. These fillers can be effective at lessening the appearance of fine wrinkles, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds and melomental folds. Dermal fillers are also used to restore volume loss in the back of the hands.

As we age, collagen production decreases and our skin begins to sag, create lines from hyperfunctional muscles, and show signs of damage from the sun, environment, and our lifestyles. Dermal fillers temporarily reverse the resulting lines by smoothing lines, filling wrinkles, improving volume loss and correcting facial asymmetries.
