UNDERSTANDING THE DIVERSITY OF HA FILLERS

“HA: Understanding the Diversity of HA Fillers: An Innovative Approach to Maximizing Facial Beauty” is a CME accredited educational initiative program designed to help core aesthetic physicians understand the diverse applications of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and how the use of a methodical, comprehensive aesthetic evaluation can help achieve more satisfactory patient outcomes. The full-day course features lectures, panel discussions, and demonstrations in the morning and an afternoon hands-on injection workshop.

During the workshop, attendees (who bring their own patients) will have an opportunity to learn tips and techniques from a team of talented and seasoned faculty including Drs. Julius Few, Derek Jones, Arthur Swift, and Heidi Waldorf. The morning will address the aesthetic evaluation and the patient consult. Time will be spent reviewing the differences among the HA fillers and how each can be utilized to achieve the best aesthetic effect. Focus will be placed on volumizing and reshaping the face. Live patient injection demonstrations will enhance the learning experience. The afternoon is dedicated to hands-on injection training. Participating physicians will bring a patient and be grouped with several of their peers. Faculty will provide one-on-one guidance and answer questions throughout the afternoon. Space is limited— only 40 spots for each course. Courses will be held in New York City at the Eventi Hotel on April 12, in San Francisco at the Clift Hotel on May 3, and in Chicago at the Hyatt Magnificint Mile on June 28.

Cost is $349 and includes product and all supplies. To register, visit https://x-medica.com/ha.
