Day 3: Cheek Enhancement


  • Lateral cheek
  • Mid-cheek
  • Anterior cheek
  •  Lower Cheek
  • Indirect Treatment of Tear Trough

Summary


On this day you will learn about how to use dermal fillers to restore or enhance volume to the mid face and cheeks.

The mid-face is one of the first places that starts to loose volume. As a result we get sagging of tissues downwards and inwards resulting in nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls.

Hence it is important to treat the cause first which is midface volume loss rather than treating the symptom i.e. nasiolabial folds/marionette lines. Most other courses will teach you to do the opposite.

We think it is important to teach you to approach cases as you would in practice and this is why cheek enhancement is taught first in the Fundamental 5 course.

  • What are dermal fillers?
  • The evolution and use of dermal fillers in aesthetic medicine
  • Synopsis of major dermal fillers brands in the market

Day 5: Lip Enhancement


  • Vermillion border Definition
  • Philtrum Definition
  • Lip Body Volume
  • Mouth Corner Lifting

Summary


On this day you will learn the art and science of lip enhancement using all the most common needle techniques so you can achieve the most aesthetic and natural results for your patients.

This will include treating the vermillion border and philtrum for definition, treating the body of the lip for volume and treating the mouth corners to lift them to a more happy looking position. All the most popular and effective volume enhancing needle techniques will be taught including:

  • Linear thread technique
  • Microbolus/Micro-droplet technique
  • Macro-bolus technique
  • Tenting technique
  • Current trends in lip enhancement
  • Social and psychological impact of lip augmentation
  • The importance of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) screening in aesthetics
  • Anatomy of the lip and perioral zone
  • Restoring the aged lip
  • Beautification of the younger lip
  • Treating the male lip
  • Contraindications & cautions
  • Taking appropriate and optimum photographic records
  • Essential communication & expectation considerations
  • Choosing the most appropriate dermal filler for your patient’s lip
  • Bespoke analysis of golden proportion and symmetry
  • Taking appropriate and optimum photographic records
  • Effective medical and aesthetic history taking
  • Consent
  • Optimal injection techniques and positioning
  • Post-operative instructions
  • Review appointments
  • Common pitfalls
  • Complication avoidance & management
  • Marketing specific to lip augmentation treatment
  • Taking optimum before & after photos for social media marketing

Historically, we taught both needle and cannula techniques in the lips but found that delegates found it very overwhelming getting to grips with all the needle techniques and then cannula on top of that, compromising both their confidence and results.

Hence, we feel It is important to master all the lip needle techniques which are most commonly used in practice before using cannula in this zone. We recommend our delegates attend our Lips Masterclass once the necessary experience has been gained where we focus on lip cannula techniques.

Prior to treating patients you will practice:

  • Flow rates and handling of dermal filler
  • Injecting volumes with precision
  • Injecting life like mannequins to practice injecting skills and positioning
  • Marking-up colleagues to integrate muscle analysis

One of our expert trainers will treat a live demo patient.

You will observe the patient having their photos taken, being consulted, analysed, marked up, injected and given post-operative instructions.

You will treat a minimum of one patient per day from start to finish, taking them through their whole patient journey, just as you would in practice.

We provide all models and you will not have to share models with fellow delegates.

You will also observe up to 12 other patients being analysed and injected on the day, which is invaluable to integrate knowledge and skills.

FAQ's & Testimonials


Frequently Asked Questions

The main reason practitioners fail to achieve success in aesthetics can be attributed to very little hands on experience during their training, leading to a lack of confidence in carrying out procedures on their own patients.

We pledge to you that unlike the majority of other courses we will provide suitable models for you and you will not share these models with other delegates. You will get to treat a minimum of 5 full cases under 1 to 1 supervision from start to finish over the 5 day course, maximising your hands-on experience and hence confidence. You will also get invaluable constructive feedback throughout.

You will take all your models through the whole patient journey from taking optimal photographs, carrying out medical and aesthetic histories, consultation, patient analysis, marking up, injecting, and finally giving post-operative instructions, precisely as you would in practice after you leave our course. Key elements which are missed on other courses, which can often be barriers in getting started no matter how simple!

From experience, not only do our delegates benefit from treating their own models but have found observing other delegates treating theirs to be invaluable! This enables you to solidify the treatment process, assessment and analysis skills and pick up useful hints and tips that comes with observing lots of patients. You will treat and observe up to 70 cases in total throughout the course!

Prior to even going anywhere near a live patient, you will be able to practice preparation of all injectables, and inject life like mannequins to practice injection techniques and positioning. This will then be followed by a demonstration by one of our expert trainers treating a live patient before you get a chance to treat yours.

Yes, both are provided. You’ll practice injection techniques and positioning on mannequins before injection of real live models. Unlike other course providers, we don’t think training on mannequins alone provides adequate experience.

Your training will be with highly experienced and qualified trainers led by Dr Rikin Parekh, who has over 12 years of experience in the Aesthetics Industry. Our trainers remain at the cutting-edge of Facial Aesthetics to ensure all course content covers the latest and most up to date techniques in Facial Aesthetics.

The art of injecting is just one aspect of this course; other aspects include knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, consenting issues, aftercare and, more importantly, complication management.

Unlike many courses, we comprehensively cover how to avoid, manage and treat complications. You will be taught how to:

  • Recognise complications arising from HA fillers & Botulinum Toxin
  • Understand the risks of administering Hyaluronidase (Hyalase®)
  • Patient management
  • Reconstitute, patch test and administer Hyaluronidase in both emergency and non-emergency situations

Alongside our comprehensive training, the Avanti Aesthetics Academy is renowned for its unparalleled free support to its delegates not only before and during our courses but also after.

We know how daunting it can be learning a new skill on a course and then going out into practice and treating patients without proper support and guidance. We want all of our delegates to feel safe in the knowledge that if they need any questions answered, whether it be a reminder of what things to order, which products to use, treatment planning for a particularly difficult case or if they encounter a problem like a patient complication, then we would be there for them.

We do not believe in charging for any of our support methods. All we want is that you feel confident in the knowledge and skills that you have learnt with us, take them into practice and have us for support if and when you require it, to ultimately be the successful aesthetic practitioners that you want to be.

The Avanti Aesthetics Academy Delegates Group

Whether it be help in treatment planning, assistance with a problem of any sort or any other question from the most basic to more complex, we are here for you!

All of our expert trainers and Dr Rikin Parekh himself will be available on this group to help, alongside your colleagues, who will also be more than willing to help. We aim to respond to any questions on the group as soon as possible so you can get a speedy response to your enquiry.

This method of support has proven invaluable for all of our delegates. It also serves as an excellent learning resource as you learn from your colleagues’ experience together with all the ancillary learning material that is posted on here by us. It is a great place to get to know like-minded colleagues and network also.

Email Support

If you feel more comfortable sending us an email in private to our designated support email address, by all means, you can do so.

Dr Parekh or one of our experts will endeavour to answer your emails asap. We may then arrange to call you depending on the nature of the enquiry.

Emergency Telephone Hotline

You will be given our Avanti Aesthetics Academy Emergency Mobile Hotline number on completion of your training. If you have any emergency issues e.g a patient complication you will be able to contact one of our experts for immediate advice if required.

In addition to the above, we provide access to our unique Avanti Aesthetics Academy discounts for future Toxin and Dermal Filler orders with pharmacies. You will find it difficult to find cheaper prices!

Yes! If referred by an existing Delegate of ours we offer £150 off the course, the referrer will also receive a reward of £150. There may be other temporary discounts throughout the year, check for this with our Course Coordinator.

We provide monthly payments options to make your training affordable and accessible, please feel free to discuss finance options with us.
