Facial Anatomy Cadaver Training By Award Winning Tutors
Take your skills and educational knowledge to the next level based on F.A.C.T.s. This course brings you facial anatomy teaching from a highly specialised expert in cadaveric dissection and aesthetic medicine; led by qualified anatomist and consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon, Mr. Dalvi Humzah. Five time winner of Training Initiative Of The Year and winner of Aesthetic Medical Practitioner Of The Year.
Split into a morning and afternoon session, this multi-award-winning training includes both educational theory through demonstration and presentations, alongside a practical workshop, aimed at those delivering facial aesthetic treatments.

The morning session features presentations and discussions on current anatomical literature, including developments related to all aspects of facial anatomy that are pertinent to clinicians practising non-surgical facial aesthetic medicine.
The afternoon session allows delegates the opportunity for practical, hands-on dissection of full face anatomy. It explores, in detail, the upper face (including the tear trough and peri-ocular anatomy), as well as the lower face and neck. Delegates will learn, through simulated soft tissue filler injections and thread insertion, correct product placement and appropriate injection techniques.
Unembalmed cadaveric tissue is used to expose each anatomical area, and the tutors will discuss technical considerations, in relation to the anatomy, for facial aesthetic treatment using non-surgical devices such as needles, blunt cannulae and threads.
- Clear understanding of facial anatomy – identifying skin layers, fat pads, nerves, vessels and other relevant structures, including ‘danger zones’ when approaching facial aesthetic treatments
- Appropriate use of pharmaceutical products and medical device in relation to the underlying facial anatomy
- Correct placement and injection techniques in relation to the underlying facial anatomy, through simulated filler injection or thread insertion, inspection and discussion
- Use of TSK products and protocols to achieve different injection techniques
You will be better able to assess strategies to rejuvenate the skin by relating anatomical knowledge to product use, injection technique and your choice of devices. By participating in a hands-on injecting session with a live dissection, you will get a deeper insight and understanding of the effect of various injection techniques, thus increasing your confidence and expertise as a facial aesthetic clinician.
This course is not designed to teach anatomical dissection techniques, but to explore the facial anatomy together during a cadaveric teaching session with an expert anatomist, making it specific to the knowledge and understanding required for delivery of non-surgical facial aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers and threads.
Delegates with have plenty of practical, hands-on time to individually explore the facial anatomy, inject simulated soft tissue fillers into the cadaveric tissue, as well as place threads. This allows delegates to scrutinise their own, current, techniques, as well as learn tips, tricks and improvements which could be made to achieve better patient safety and/or improved aesthetic outcomes.
The course will include anatomical examination of the upper face (including the tear trough and peri-ocular anatomy), as well as the lower face and neck.
This bespoke, small group course is held in an informal setting, with interaction sought from delegates, who help to guide their own learning experience.
Delegates will have an opportunity to discuss individual learning desires. The course is overseen and led by the award-winning trainers, speakers and key opinion leaders.
Although there is a mix of presentation-based learning and lecture, the emphasis is on spending as much time as possible during the day on hands-on learning with the cadaveric samples. In small groups of approximately 5 people, delegates can steer their tutor to assist them with their learning deficits, in terms of specific anatomical knowledge, product placement and technique honing.
- Small groups. Maximum 12 delegates per course day.
- 2 to 3 tutors
- Maximum delegate to tutor ration of 1:5
The TSK Cadaveric Anatomy Course has a maximum of 12 delegates per course day, with a maximum candidate to tutor ration of 1:5. This allows for a more personalised learning experience.
