Introduction to Dermal Fillers Overview

Introduction to Dermal Fillers at Aesthetic Mentor is a CME accredited course for medical professionals interested in learning the foundational skills for safe and effective dermal filler treatments.

Injectable fillers have become a popular fixture in the cosmetic treatment landscape in recent years. Depending on the formulation used, facial fillers are temporary to long-lasting solutions for cosmetic lip enhancement, facial volume loss, correction of age related static wrinkles and scars. Some of the most popular dermal fillers available in the United States are marketed under the names Juvéderm, Restylane, and Belotero.

If you are a healthcare provider seeking a career change, or perhaps you are frustrated with diminishing insurance reimbursements, adding aesthetic injectable treatments to your practice can provide powerful revenue streams paired with high patient satisfaction rates.

Introduction to Dermal Fillers is an 12 hour-long course led by Dr. Joseph A. Russo, a Harvard trained, board-certified Plastic Surgeon with more than 30 years of experience. Dr. Russo and his team of expert mentors will guide you through a blend of didactic and hands-on dermal filler training, beginning in our virtual classroom, with a comprehensive look at available dermal fillers, anatomy, treatment protocols, and safety. This is followed by hands-on injectable training in a clinical environment. Our 2:1 student-to-educator ratio provides an unsurpassed learning experience, giving you the support and confidence you need to begin treating patients right away.

Upon completion of Introduction to Dermal Fillers, students can continue to develop their skills by advancing to our Intermediate class offerings. Our student advisors are always available to direct you along your learning path and answer any questions you may have.

When you choose Aesthetic Mentor for advanced training in aesthetic medicine, our investment in you continues far beyond the classroom, with ongoing support resources including; compliance, safety, continuing education, employment assistance, business development leadership, and access to professional and patient marketing tools.

What are our Graduates Saying?

I felt the discussion withDr. Russo and his staff was great and very informative. All in all, it was a blast and I’m thrilled that I finally took the steps to move into this field of medical aesthetics, as it’s been a goal of mine for the past few years. As you know, most courses for nurses trying to break into this field are not offered, so ‘hooray’.

My instructors made me feel so comfortable and helped walk me through every step. Dr. Russo used his own experiences to help train us which was so helpful.
