Description: This participation course will present the history, development, and characteristics of dermal fillers, as well as a cadaver review of facial anatomy. In addition to the P.M. hands-on, live patient session, this content-rich participation course will present injection techniques and safety issues, as well as address the recognition, management, and treatment of complications.
