Course Overview

Our Tear Trough & Cheek Cannula Masterclass focuses on mastering the treatment of tear troughs and mid-face - the earliest signs of ageing that can make patients appear tired, aged, and even ill. Through this course, we offer you a unique approach to treating these areas as a single aesthetic unit, thus providing a more natural and balanced aesthetic outcome.

We've tailored this training to equip you with the skills to reduce under-eye hollowing, dark circles, and facial drooping by restoring volume using safe and effective cannula techniques.

Treating the Tear Trough and Mid-face Safely

Safety is paramount in aesthetic treatments. By teaching you how to use cannulas in treating the tear trough and mid-face, we significantly reduce the risk of common side effects like bruising and swelling, as well as severe complications like vascular occlusion. This course will break down the often complex tear trough treatment into a systematic, step-by-step approach that you can easily and safely replicate in practice.

Understanding the Anatomy and Ageing Process

To effectively treat the tear trough and mid-face, you first need a deep understanding of their anatomy and how they age. This includes knowledge of the neurovascular anatomy, danger zones, and the specific ways the orbital and mid-face regions age.

We will also look at the impact of ethnicity and sexual dimorphism in treatment approaches, ensuring you have a comprehensive understanding of how these factors influence treatment plans.

Effective Consultation and Assessment Skills

The consultation process is a critical factor in ensuring your success. You will learn how to conduct an effective consultation, take medical and aesthetic history, assess the periorbital zone, tear trough, and mid-face, and identify suitable and unsuitable candidates for treatment.

We'll guide you on how to manage patient expectations, understand contraindications and cautions, and get consent for treatment.

Practical Skills and Complication Management

The course provides hands-on training, where you will perform treatment of the tear trough and cheeks under expert supervision. You'll learn to choose the right products, calculate the required quantity, sterile decanting of filler into insulin syringes for safe and precise tear trough injection, and tips and tricks specific to cannula and needle use in the tear trough and cheeks. We'll also cover critical aspects of complication avoidance, management, and treatment-specific post-operative instructions.

Marketing and Photography

Lastly, we understand the importance of showcasing your work to attract new patients. That's why we've included a session dedicated to taking optimal photographic records and marketing your tear trough and mid-face treatments effectively.


This course is designed for practitioners with some existing cannula skills. If you're a beginner, you might find it beneficial to complete an intermediate course first.
