The introductory course is designed in 2020 and is much different from the previous beginner courses we hosted. Based onthe latest insights in risk level of facial injections, we teach inexperienced physicians the facial indications that will have the lowest chance of serious adverse events. For example, we immediately start teaching use of non-traumatic cannulas as they are associated with lower risk of adverse events than sharp needles. 

The first theoretical part covers botulinum toxin type 2: the mechanism of action of, reconstitution, indications and musculature (frown lines and crows feet), contra-indications, complications and management of complications. We have dedicated practice time to assess the musculature of fellow delegates and mark the injection points. 

The second theoretical part covers hyaluronic acid. We will cover the mechanism of action, needle vs cannulas, infection prevention, low risk indications (cheeks, chin, marionette lines, jawline), choice of product, contra-indications, complications and management of complications). 

We will assess the acquired knowledge with a multiple choice questions examination. The delegates have the opportunity to have the failed questions explained to them. 

After lunch, the practical sessions will cover hands-on injecting on live patients with both botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid fillers. We will guide the delegates step by step through the injection process and we will assess the practical competence with an objective structured assessment os technical skills (OSATS). 

With both MCQ and OSATS passed, a certificate of successful completion of the course will be awarded to the delegate.
