Injectable Dermal Fillers Training

In this certificate program you will be trained to use dermal fillers to restore youthful fullness to face and lips and enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles. Dermal fillers have been called "liquid facelifts" because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. Although they can't help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery.
