CME Information

Jointly provided by Dannemiller and continuED Medical.

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 in terms of volume loss, structural changes, and subtle modifications of the different regions of the aging face;
  • Develop and execute a repeatable, full-face treatment plan including: appraisal of patient’s desires and expectations; an accurate anatomic assessment; level of facial aging; appropriate drawing of pre-procedure markings; the selection of appropriate agents; and the use of appropriate injection techniques;
  • Show how treatment approaches differ between the female and male aesthetics patients through an in-depth understanding of anatomy and variations.
  • Compare and contrast the traditional injection techniques versus the lift and fill antegrade technique as a means of restoring lost volume to specific regions of the aging face.

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 great 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 shift 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 advance training initiative.

To address these unmet educational needs, The Aesthetic Blueprint training initiative will begin with a series of 2-day nationwide training seminars. Each seminar comprises intense instruction that includes live lectures, hands-on training and clinical demonstrations. The seminars will be moderated by several well renowned aesthetic experts who will provide guidance and instruction throughout the course of the individualized training.  The Aesthetic Blueprint training initiative will provide participants with the learning experience, hands-on training and follow-up resource to ensure successful implementation into clinical practice.
