Dermal Fillers Basics is an introduction to HA fillers and starts with basic volumizing and effacing lines. Botox can only do so much and for 100% correction, dermal fillers are needed. Globally, the market for dermal fillers is nearly as large as the market for Botox, so every practitioner needs to have dermal fillers as part of their services. This course is a detailed examination of HA fillers as well as a discussion on why beginning injectors should only inject HA fillers and should avoid non-HA fillers.

The 174 slides with didactic lectures cover all the popular HA fillers, flow properties, products by Galderma, Allergan, Merz and Prollenium. Needles vs cannulas and injection techniques are covered in detail. The five applications covered are Marionette Lines, Nasal Labial Folds, Perioral, Mental Crease and Lip Augmentation. This course can usually be completed in 10 - 14 hours or less.
