What are dermal fillers
DERMAL FILLERS are a group of substances normally classified as medical devices. These substances usually are gel-like in composition and come in pre-filled syringes. Hyaluronic acid is the generic name of one of the most popular dermal fillers worldwide. It is more well-known under brand names such as Restylane and Juvederm.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to physically fill in wrinkles and also to augment and sculpt facial features. As opposed to Botulinum Toxin, dermal fillers are more versatile and can be used to treat all types of wrinkles throughout the face. Dermal fillers are useful for mild, moderate and deep facial wrinkles. Another popular use includes lip filling and cheek augmentation. Temporary dermal fillers are normally quite safe when used by appropriately trained personnel. The side effects may include local effects related to the injection, including bruising, redness and swelling. These effects normally pass after several days. Infection requiring antibiotic treatment is another potential complication.

Introductory Dermal Filler Training Courses
Basic dermal filler training for beauty therapists gives beauticians the tools to begin administering dermal filler safely. Normally only beauty therapists with several years of experience and advanced training diplomas are eligible for dermal filler training.

Introductory courses typically include the following modules:
– Anatomy and physiology of the skin
– Pharmacology of hyaluronic acid and temporary dermal fillers
– Client assessment for treatment suitability
– How to know which clients should not be treated
– Injection Techniques
– Informed consent

Basic dermal filler training normally focuses on treatment of fine facial wrinkles and superficial injection techniques.

Following completion of a basic course, beauty therapists will be able to treat:
– Fine upper lip lines
– Crow’s feet using dermal fillers
– Forehead lines using dermal fillers
– Other fine facial lines

Advanced Dermal Filler Training Courses
Advanced dermal filler training should only be undertaken by aestheticians who have successfully completed a basic course and mastered the introductory techniques.

Once practitioners are competent with filling of fine lines they will be able to learn more complex techniques. Advanced dermal filler training really expands the variety of treatments aestheticians can offer their clients and will lead to greatly increased client satisfaction.

Advanced techniques involve the filling of medium to deep facial wrinkles, which are far more challenging to treat than fine lines. Successful treatment can achieve results similar to post-surgical therapy for a lesser cost and reduced side effects. Besides wrinkle filling, advanced training also teaches augmentation and enhancement of facial features, such as the lips and cheek.

Advanced courses will teach beauticians to treat the following areas:
– Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
– Marionette lines
– Lip Augmentation
– Cheek Augmentation

The following modules are typically included in advanced dermal filler training:
– Anatomy of the lips, deep facial anatomy
– Dermal filler indications, contraindications and pharmacology
– Patient assessment
– Matching the appropriate filler to the treatment area
– Practical experience
