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.

In addition to live-patient hands-on training, this course covers the science of dermal fillers, safe injection techniques, proper patient assessment, requisite anatomy, safety protocols and so much more. No other course offers microcannula training at the foundational level. 

FACES dermal filler training is designed to build your confidence as an injector and prepare you to go back to your practice ready to safely and confidently inject patients. All FACES courses are designed to save you time and money by not requiring multiple levels of training. Reinvigorate your practice by adding dermal filler treatments with the only Anatomically Based, Academically Rigorous and Scientifically Driven© Seminar.

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

• Treating live patients
