The Hands- On Facial Anatomy with Ultrasound Guidance Workshop will demonstrate how to achieve safer and better outcomes with injectables while integrating the use of ultrasound technology to injection anatomy. This workshop will provide innovative education, skills, and techniques that attendees can immediately adapt into their current practice environment to provide safe, effective, and high-level patient care. This will be done utilizing hands-on learning by offering a cadaver dissection session.
This activity is designed for an audience of nurses, physicians, and physician assistants.
Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the anatomy of the face in terms of volume loss and structural changes in multiple tissue layers
- Identify the functional aspect of facial muscles including surface landmarks
- Assess a patient’s candidacy for facial rejuvenation with neurotoxin, dermal fillers and deoxycholic acid
- Recognize the appropriate anatomical plane for injection when using dermal fillers and deoxycholic acid
- Differentiate among dermal filler agents
- Distinguish between sensory and nerve anatomy
- Perform neurotoxin, dermal filler and deoxycholic acid injections for a range of indications
- Identify anatomical ‘danger zones’ which may result in adverse events or permanent injury if neurotoxin, dermal fillers or deoxycholic acid are injected improperly
- Assess the benefits of utilizing ultrasound technology for guided anatomy mapping and injections
