Course Description

Please Note: This course is only available to Doctors & Dentists

Medskills faculty member, Dr Sujata Garach, has designed a detailed and comprehensive course in facial anatomy with a focus on injection anatomy. A surgeon can visualise where he/she is but an injector has to rely on their knowledge to know what lies underneath.


This is a comprehensive facial anatomy training course for practitioners who are looking to gain an understanding of facial aesthetics and the different treatments in aesthetic medicine.

Medical aesthetics has fast developed into a new sub speciality in medicine. Specialists, doctors and dentists have developed a keen interest. Anatomy learned at medical school is not enough to gain a respectable understanding required for injectable procedures. Understanding how the different layers of the face interacts with each other and that everything connects, will give the injector a better and greater understanding of the anatomical structures and its vasculature.

The course integrates your present knowledge of facial anatomy and helps you apply it in the clinical setting. Identifying and learning landmarks, the participants will gain a thorough perspective of safe and safer techniques, to avoid unwanted complications. The face like the rest of the body has a complex neurovasculature system and the risk for injury is always a probability.
