Upper Face Masterclass

Advanced techniques and using the cannula

Suitable for practitioners that have already completed our foundation courses in Botox® and or Dermal Filler or have been practicing in injectable cosmetics for some time.

Staying abreast of the latest innovations in facial rejuvenation we know is essential in the rapidly changing medical aesthetics industry. The ability to deliver the results your patients are looking for and the expectation to offer current knowledge for exceptional clinical outcomes requires constant professional development. Our upper face masterclass is developed by our expert trainers using the latest products and techniques to stay ahead of the curve and your competition.

We know brand training can offer valuable knowledge; however, it is often centred in one product line and administering skill. In the upper face masterclass, we cover temples, periorbital rejuvenation, forehead contouring, sleep lines, glabellar, and using the cannula technique.

The course outlines the benefits of using cannula techniques, but also when it is more appropriate to use needles. Mastering injecting with a needle is the foundation of injectable cosmetics. However, for many filler procedures mastering cannula techniques offers a safer treatment pathway, reduced bruising, bleeding and client discomfort. This leads to fewer complications, quicker recovery time, and increased patient satisfaction.

Who is able to attend this course?

I am a beauty therapist can I attend this course?

Sorry due to insurance protocols and the problem of beauty therapy being an unregulated qualification, we are unable to facilitate training for beauty therapists.

In addition, the practical days see you observing injectable treatment plus hands-on administering of dermal fillers. All our courses have a strong focus on practical skills.

No, we provide all models for the practical component of the course. If you do wish to bring along a model, please let us know at the time of enrolment.

No, our insurance covers you on the practical treatment days. Once you have qualified you will, of course, need to organise your insurance to practice.
