Facial Anatomy Training


We are running a cadaver dissection teaching session on Facial Anatomy This training will cover in detail the upper face (including the tear trough and peri ocular anatomy), the lower face and neck.  With each anatomical area, Mr Humzah will discuss technical considerations when treating using non-surgical (blunt cannulae and needle) and surgical procedures; as well as complications and their anatomical basis. Adequate time is permitted during and after the session to allow for discussion as this will be a very interactive class.
The session numbers will be low to allow those who attend to get the most from the training and we encourage individuals to specify particular areas that they wish to address so we ensure that we incorporate this. There will be a maximum of 6 delegates per tutor, we will run a morning session which will commence at 9am and finish at 12:30pm and an afternoon session from 1:30pm until 4pm, with light refreshments included. The cost for each session is £550 which includes a comprehensive delegate pack with anatomical illustrations, a reference list and certificate of attendance.

The training is independent of any pharmaceutical endorsement with the sole aim to promote a better anatomical awareness when performing Aesthetic  treatments.
