How To Avoid Skull Foramina With Dermal Fillers

 How To Avoid Skull Foramina With Dermal Fillers

Want to know how to avoid skull foramina with dermal fillers? Use this tip from Harley Academy experts to safely place deep supraperiosteal dermal filler deposits.

When treating a patient, you can palpate the supraorbital foramen. This allows you to approximately predict where the infraorbital and mental foramen are located, in a straight line down the face. It also typically correlates to the position of the second premolar.

As an aesthetics practitioner, you can use this to protect the neurovascular bundles emerging from the foramen when placing deep supraperiosteal dermal filler deposits, particularly with a needle. Doing so will help you to avoid skull foramina when treating filler patients. 

Anatomical knowledge is fundamental to delivering safe aesthetic treatments. Become an expert practitioner on our Level 7 Diploma in Botox & Dermal Fillers, a postgraduate level course consisting of 142 CPD hours.

On the course, which uses blended online and hands-on training, you will build in-depth anatomical knowledge, This theoretical and practical learning will allow you to safely deliver botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatments.

For those wishing to perfect their needle technique or improve their confidence as an injector, specialist one-to-one training is now available.
