Training on blunt tip cannulas is included in this course. Blunt tip cannulas allow additional areas of the face to be reached where traditional needles are contraindicated. The blunt tip cannula training will teach you the various sizes, lengths, and facial features that can be reached using cannulas, as well as the benefits of reduced bruising and elimination of possible occlusion of vessels. Blunt tip cannulas are available for the hands-on portion of the training and are utilized within the program.

The need for aesthetic procedures is on the rise, and dermal fillers are the second most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure performed in the United States with over 6 million injections annually. The reason for the popularity of dermal fillers is the semi-permanent nature of the procedure which yields instant but long-term results by softening or eliminating folds and wrinkles. The average professional fee or profit to administer the various dermal filler products can range from $350 to over $400 per syringe.

The Dermal Filler program is a complete certification program for physicians, nurses, dentists, and other licensed healthcare professionals. Each attendee will be required to demonstrate their proficiency in performing these techniques after receiving extensive hands on training with live patients.
