The Sculptra Aesthetic Training covers the use of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) injections for facial rejuvenation and addressing aging signs. These injections are known for enhancing facial volume, minimizing wrinkles, and achieving improved skin texture, often referred to as the coveted "Sculptra glow."

  2. Live Model Demonstration: Following the presentation, there will be a live demonstration on a model to showcase the application of Sculptra Aesthetic. Lauren will illustrate the injection techniques and treatment areas that are her favourite.
  3. Hands-On Experience: Each session is limited to three attendees to ensure personalized attention. Each attendee will have dedicated one-on-one time with Lauren for hands-on experience. This practical segment involves supervised injections, allowing participants to apply what they've learned.
