Are you a prescribing nurse looking to improve your dermal filler technique? Or are you learning completely new to facial aesthetics and planning a bold new career move?
At OFAA, we specialise in dermal filler training courses for nurses and other medical practitioners, teaching both basic and advanced filler techniques. Our one-day cadaveric classes allow delegates to deeply understand the facial anatomy before trying out our research-led techniques themselves.
With small class sizes and hands-on instruction by leading international surgeons in facial aesthetics, OFAA courses are the perfect way for nurses to learn safe, effective filler techniques.
Why nurses should consider dermal filler training
The demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments has rocketed in the last decade – with demand for dermal fillers and Botox® growing by 45% in the past year. This is because many patients are opting for instant non-surgical results over invasive surgical procedures.
Many prescribing nurses on our courses have their own clinics and offer a range of injectable treatments. However, even as an individual practitioner, a dermal filler training course can be of great benefit to your career by improving patient outcomes. We teach a range of transferrable, highly demanded skills, which will add broad experience to your CV – helping you to become even more skilled.
Why OFAA dermal filler courses are perfect for nurses
At OFAA, our dermal filler training courses for nurses teach both the anatomical theory and the latest injectable techniques. To maximise the safety of filler treatments, we teach appropriate patient selection, how to choose safe filler planes and how to minimise complications. We also then advise on how to restore and rejuvenate key areas of the facial anatomy, with advice on which filler products to use and how much filler is required – before giving delegates lots of hands-on time to try the techniques out themselves.
Every one of our courses also goes into much greater depth on one set of techniques – for example, restoring female and male facial profiles, perioral and periorbital rejuvenation & the prevention and management of dermal filler complications.
Delegates leave our courses confident with the knowledge and understanding for delivering treatments on live patients.
Who are your trainers
OFAA courses are led by Mrs Sabrina Shah-Desai (MS, FRCS), one of UK’s leading Oculoplastic Surgeons specialising in surgical and non-surgical peri-orbital rejuvenation. She is a global KOL for Galderma and has developed “Eye-Boost™” and “Perfect360 ™”.
On each of our courses, we’re also joined by other leading anatomical & surgical experts to compliment the course content.
Career development for nurses
As well as learning the latest research-led techniques, every course also gives delegates 7 hours of accredited CPD time and a certificate of attendance.
