Gigi Meinecke, DMD has been active in the field of facial injectables since 2004. Her organization, “FACES,” provides cosmetic and therapeutic injectable training for medical and dental professionals with a core focus on comprehensive facial anatomy. Her courses integrate cadaver study with live patient injections. In addition to teaching nationally, Dr. Meinecke is the Facial Injectables Course Director and Faculty at the Boston University School of Dental Medicine.

FACES provides the only dermal filler training that includes a cadaver anatomy review workshop and live patient training. This course covers the basic science of dermal fillers, safe injection techniques, proper patient facial evaluation and anatomy, safety protocols, pre/post procedure steps and more. No other courses incorporate blunt end cannula training at the beginner level. FACES dermal filler training is designed to build your confidence as an injector and prepare you to go back to your practice and be able to safely and confidently inject patients. All FACES courses are designed to save you time and money by eliminating the need for multiple levels of training. Re-invigorate your practice by adding dermal filler treatments with this Anatomically Based, Academically Rigorous and Scientifically Driven Seminar™. 

Only Massachusetts licenses are permitted to inject live patients, as per Massachusetts law.

Attendees will be:

• Treating live patients

• Each injector supplies their own model patient

• Patient treatment is not "required" to receive total credit if the practitioner is present during the afternoon live-patient treatment phase.
