Facial Anatomy: Dissect and Inject

Our first Facial Anatomy: Dissect and Inject course was held earlier in the summer and received excellent feedback. It proved so popular that we already have a second course lined up, with a waiting list!

The course was attended by cosmetic nurses who had signed up to the class through the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN). It aimed to refresh their anatomical knowledge of the head and face in order to improve patient outcomes.
Cadaver dissection for facial anatomy training enables delegates to better understand the precise nature of the many tissues. A recent research study entitled ‘Effectiveness of teaching facial anatomy through cadaver dissection on aesthetic physicians‘ knowledge’ highlights the benefits of this training.

The study concluded that “…cadaver anatomy training improved applied facial anatomy knowledge for most of the aesthetic practitioners, which may enhance their confidence in performing nonsurgical facial aesthetic procedures.” – Narendra Kumar and Eqram Rahman – Postgraduate Medical Institute, Faculty of Medical Science, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, UK.

Lorna Jackson, writes for The consulting Room and reveals her thoughts on attending our Facial Anatomy: Dissect and Inject course, “Delegates were teamed in pairs, each with a fresh-frozen cadaver head laid out ready for dissection. Although I did not participate in the ‘hands-on’ aspects of the training, I was surprised how quickly I acclimatised to the environment, and the fascination for learning over took me with increasing and unexpected enthusiasm.” Continue reading here.
