Course Overview

Introduction to Cannulas at Aesthetic Mentor is a course for medical professionals interested in learning the skills required for safe and effective dermal filler treatments with cannulas. Cannulas are a valuable tool for aesthetic injectors and may decrease the risk of bruising and vascular occlusion when used by expertly trained experienced injectors. Cannulas can effectively deliver dermal filler or PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to a large area with a single point of entry, potentially decreasing patients’ risk for complications and downtime.

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. Our student advisors are always available to direct you along your learning path and answer any questions you may have.
