Dermal Filler: Cheek enhancement, nasolabial folds & marionette lines

Midface volumisation or cheek augmentation and nasolabial fold/marionette line treatment are the first steps in restoring the ageing face and cheek augmentation also plays a major role in female facial beautification and male facial masculinisation in younger patients.

The cheeks are one of the first places we start to lose volume, leading to sagging of tissues downwards and inwards resulting in nasolabial folds, marionette lines and jowls. For the aged patient it is important to treat this midface volume loss first then treat the symptoms – nasolabial folds and marionette lines to rejuvenate the mid and lower face.

On this course we will teach you a systemised, anatomical based approach of correcting volume loss of the aged midface and sculpting cheeks for beautification/masculinisation. You will learn how to treat the lateral, mid and anterior cheek and improve tear troughs indirectly through midface volumisation.

You will also learn how to treat the nasolabial folds using only safe micro-cannula techniques, which is essential for this ‘high risk zone’ for complications when using outdated and unsafe needle techniques as taught on most other courses. You will also be taught how to use micro-cannulas as well as safe needle techniques for disguising the mouth-to-chin lines (marionettes) and turning up the oral commissures (mouth corners) for a happier rested appearance. In addition, we will teach you how to treat the labio-mental crease (crease in between lower lip and chin).
