Facial Injectables Cadaver Hands-On Workshop
Natausha Spears, RN, BS, Dr. Terry Alford, DMD, Corinn Singletary, PA-C & Marianne Azneer, PA-C, International Injectables Trainer
Anatomical knowledge is fundamental to becoming a highly skilled, safe injector. The Facial Injectables Cadaver Workshop provides the highest level of anatomical training to expand your repertoire of facial injectables. Working in small groups, participants will dissect cadavers to identify pertinent anatomy (muscular structures, fat pads, dermal depths) and learn correct injection techniques to avoid complications and adverse effects.
This hands-on workshop, exclusively at the 2019 IAFA Aesthetic Symposium, will give participants a high level understanding of the essential anatomy of the face as it pertains to facial injectables.
Workshop Bonuses: This year the cadaver workshop will feature an interactive pre-dissection lecture featuring expert guided markings on mannequin heads. Participants will also receive a cadaver workbook to fully guide them through the workshop, serving as an excellent post workshop review.

Absorbable PDO Threads Training Workshop*
Facilitated by: Marianne Azneer, PA-C, International Injectables Trainer &
Dr. Kian Karimi, MD, FACS
This innovative workshop features training on the latest advancements for Absorbable PDO threads, an innovative, minimally invasive & effective technique to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. This workshop training will show participants various techniques using basic (Nu-Mesh) PDO threads. These new non-invasive procedures consist of using absorbable PDO (Polydiaxanone) threads to achieve safe, in-office tightening and repositioning of the skin. The procedure requires no surgical skills and delivers great results with virtually no complications. The threads are placed in the superficial tissues and can be used anywhere on the face and body.
The procedure is performed in-office without any anesthesia. The treated area then mounts a controlled inflammatory response to the threads to provide the desired effect. Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in treatment and observe various cases for maximum learning during the 4.5 hour workshop.
*Advanced Practitioners Only
Certificate of completion will be supplied to each attendee as part of the registration fee.
