CME Information

Jointly provided by and continuED Medical.

Supported by an educational grant form Allergan and Galderma

Intended Audience

This continuing medical education (CME) activity is developed for healthcare professionals seeking information to improve the skills and competency related to the practice of aesthetic medicine.

Learning Objectives

After participating in activities associated with The Aesthetic Blueprint, participants should be able to:

  • Implement into practice a comprehensive multi-modal three-dimensional (3D) approach to achieving an outstanding cosmetic outcome based on volume loss, structural changes, and subtle modifications of the different regions of the aging face;
  • Explain Injector Anatomy and target areas for optimal facial enhancement;
  • Identify injection “danger zones” of the face and approaches to both avoid and address complications;
  • Show how treatment approaches differ between female and male aesthetics patients through an in-depth understanding of anatomy and variations;
  • Compare and contrast injection techniques, product ‘personalities’ and strategic approaches to restoration and contouring the aging face;
  • Demonstrate alternative approaches to off-the-face treatments, including hand restoration and buttock (lift) enhancement.

Statement of Need

The practice of aesthetic medicine has evolved considerably over the past few decades. Non-surgical approaches such as neuromodulators, dermal fillers, energy devices, and cosmeceutical skin care products have become the mainstay treatments for beautification and the creation of a more youthful-looking appearance. Advances in surgical and non-surgical techniques now offer physicians and their patients a range of effective options that can be tailored specifically to the patients’ needs and desires. However, these innovative advancements have created several practice gaps in aesthetic medicine that are not being adequately addressed by today’s training activities.

The paradigm shift in aesthetics to a more three-dimensional focus will revolutionize the practice of aesthetic medicine. It will create growth opportunities for practitioners willing to embrace this best practice approach. However, it is a major shift from traditional aesthetic dogma and strays from conventional principles and teaching, thus resulting in a change in aesthetic training and education as well. The Aesthetic Blueprint training initiative is built and taught by real innovators in aesthetic medicine who are willing to share their experience and successful insights as part of this advanced training initiative.

To address these unmet educational needs, The Aesthetic Blueprint training initiative conducted a series of 2.5-day nationwide training seminars — each seminar comprised intense instruction that includes live lectures and clinical demonstrations. The seminars were moderated by several well renowned aesthetic experts who provided guidance and instruction throughout the course of the individualized training.

The 2019 Immersion Seminar was videotaped and made available as an enduring online CE activity in the Blueprint Digital Library. It is designed to reach a broader audience of interested practitioners who are unable to attend the live event. The video content will stream in real-time to any desktop or mobile device and will be readily available 24/7.

The Aesthetic Blueprint training initiative will provide participants with the learning experience and follow-up resource to ensure successful implementation into clinical practice.
