Tear Troughs Masterclass

Tue 25 January 2022 in London

What does this masterclass cover?

During this course Dr Michael Aicken offers 90 minutes of online learning, followed by a 90 minute face-to-face and one-to-one practical session in London or Belfast. Our masterclass on this advanced dermal filler technique will give your patients new confidence, as well as extending your business offering. Teosyal Redensity II is the only dermal filler currently licenced for treatment around the eye. The eye area is extremely delicate, and so injections must be perfectly placed at the correct depth in order to avoid the later formation of lumps.

On this tear troughs masterclass, led by one of the UK’s leading aesthetic trainers, Dr Michael Aicken, you will learn how to vibrantly improve the appearance of dark circles using dermal filler. Here he will share with you his technique on this notoriously delicate area of the face, so you can add it to your portfolio of future treatments.

What are tear troughs?

These notoriously difficult to treat areas under the eyes are one of the biggest challenges for any practitioner. These areas often appear worse when dehydrated or tired. Effective and professional treatment of these areas will boost your patients’ self-confidence and poise.

What’s involved in this treatment?

The treatment involves three or four injections under each eye. Before this, the skin can be anaesthetised using anaesthetic cream so that the whole procedure is virtually pain-free. It takes around five minutes to complete each treatment, making this a brilliant return on investment for your clinic.

*COVID-19 update: This course will have a maximum of four trainees and will be condensed into two days online and one day of intense, small-group, face-to-face training (instead of two days of face-to-face training with a larger group).

    Often adding Aesthetics to an existing MDU/MPS or dental equivalent policy can prove more expensive than having a stand alone Aesthetic specific policy. There are many companies and options out there below are an example of two that approve our courses:
