W009 - Hands-on: Practical Anatomy for Dermal Fillers

Monday, February 19; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify structural and functional facial anatomy relevant to filler injections.
  • Utilize proper techniques for soft tissue augmentation pan-facially.
  • Implement peri-procedural assessment and strategies for avoidance and management of complications.


This hands-on training session for dermal fillers will begin with a video review of anatomy presented by Dr. Braz. Participants will then break into groups of beginner/intermediate or intermediate/advanced injectors. Faculty will circulate through each of stations focused on a specific anatomical region of the face. Each demonstration table will be equipped with high fidelity cutaneous surgical training models for practice injections using both needles and cannulas. This activity has been approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) for up to 30 MOC Component 2 Self-Assessment points.
