What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected into skin and soft tissue to restore plumpness and volume that is lost through ageing. Dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face, to lift and enhance facial contours and to add plumpness and definition to the lips.
What does the dermal filler treatment involve?
Dermal fillers are injected in very small doses just underneath the skin in the area requiring treatment. The results can be seen immediately following treatment as the filler softens or plumps out the sunken area or lines on the face. Some bruising and swelling is to be expected following a dermal filler injection and this will go away naturally in the days following the treatment. Depending on what type of dermal filler has been used, results can last from 4 to 12 months.
The foundation dermal fillers training course is comprehensive in all aspects of incorporating these procedures into your patient practice. Some facial lines are best improved using facial line softeners and others by using dermal fillers. Fillers can also be used for temporarily restoring hydration and volume to the skin. Results of this treatment can be immediate and can also improve in the two-week post-procedure period.
It is important to learn about when to use which treatment and also that these two procedures can complement each other. During this course we will cover mid-face volume; cheek sculpting and nasolabial folds. Delegates will learn how using dermal fillers correctly can enhance appearance and contribute to overall facial revitalisation.
