Course abstract.

This course brings you facial anatomy teaching from a highly specialised expert in cadaveric dissection and aesthetic medicine; led by qualified anatomist and consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon, Mr. Dalvi Humzah.

Split into a morning and afternoon session, this multi-award-winning training includes both educational theory through demonstration and presentations, alongside a practical workshop, aimed at those delivering facial aesthetic treatments.

The morning session features presentations and discussions on current anatomical literature, including developments related to all aspects of facial anatomy that are pertinent to clinicians practising non-surgical facial aesthetic medicine.

The afternoon session allows delegates the opportunity for practical, hands-on dissection of full face anatomy. It explores, in detail, the upper face (including the tear trough and peri-ocular anatomy), as well as the lower face and neck. Delegates will learn, through simulated soft tissue filler injections and thread insertion, correct product placement and appropriate injection techniques.

Unembalmed cadaveric tissue is used to expose each anatomical area, and Mr. Humzah will discuss technical considerations, in relation to the anatomy, for facial aesthetic treatment using non-surgical devices such as needles, blunt cannulae and threads.

Course goals.

Clear understanding of facial anatomy – identifying skin layers, fat pads, nerves, vessels and other relevant structures, including ‘danger zones’ when approaching facial aesthetic treatments

Appropriate use of pharmaceutical products and medical device in relation to the underlying facial anatomy

Correct placement and injection techniques in relation to the underlying facial anatomy, through simulated filler injection or thread insertion, inspection and discussion

Use of TSK products and protocols to achieve different injection techniques

You will be better able to assess strategies to rejuvenate the skin by relating anatomical knowledge to product use, injection technique and your choice of devices. By participating in a hands-on injecting session with a live dissection, you will get a deeper insight and understanding of the effect of various injection techniques, thus increasing your confidence and expertise as a facial aesthetic clinician.
