Hands-On: Cosmetics


Banner for hands-on cosmetics

Innovative. Interactive. Hands On.

Join us this Fall at the AAD’s popular Hands-On: Cosmetics course! This live event is where you’ll come to practice injection techniques alongside our expert faculty in a risk-free environment. It's a chance to ask questions and learn the ins and outs to confidently offer high-demand cosmetic services in your practice.

Throughout the course, you will work with simulated head models so that you can see what you are doing every step of the way to perfect your technique. Plus, watch live demonstrations with real patients.

Course information

November 19-20, 2022

Hands-On: Cosmetics is designed to expand on the popular workshops offered at other AAD meetings. Attendees will practice injection techniques with cutaneous procedural head models. Anatomy as it relates to injectable will be emphasized, and approaches to patient assessment, treatment planning, avoiding adverse events, and product selection will be covered.

Upon conclusion of this course, participants will be able to assess the benefits and risks of performing procedures commonly used in cosmetic dermatology according to a patient’s clinical situation, describe the risks of each cosmetic procedure and methods to minimize such risks and perform procedures commonly used in cosmetic dermatology, specifically botulinum toxin injections and fillers.
