Foundation Fillers Course Overview

(Part 1 – Cheeks, Part 2 – Lips, Part 3 – Nose to Mouth, Marionettes and Perioral Lines)


Dermal Fillers have become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures and have advanced beyond their primary indication as a treatment for facial wrinkles and folds to become a more sophisticated application of facial sculpting and contouring.

They can be used to:

    • restore and add volume to the skin and facial contours.
    • smooth static lines and wrinkles.
    • augment the appearance of certain facial features such as the cheeks and lips.

This course includes in-depth anatomy and physiology and live models for all participants, and is open to both medics and non- medics.

This comprehensive training course will enable successful delegates to safely deliver dermal fillers to the mid to lower third of the face, specifically the lips, cheeks, nose to mouth and marionettes. Most of the underpinning theory to Dermal Fillers will studied online and the reviewed in class when you attend for your practical training. Online study is provided in advance of the course so that on the day theory aspects can simply be re-enforced, enabling us to focus more on the practical hands-on training.

For your practical training we will provide sufficient live models for your practical sessions. Students will be very carefully observed and guided to ensure that they are confident enough to go and work on their own or as part of a professional Aesthetics Clinic.

As this course contains specific requirements (please see entrance requirements below), delegates who do not meet the entry criteria are strongly recommended to complete our Access to Injectables course prior to enrolling on this course.
