About The Course

International experts Gillian Murray, Dani Sher and Mike Clague are interviewed by myself during this online series. Their expert knowledge equips aesthetics practitioners with the knowledge they need to take the appropriate steps to avoid, recognize, and treat complications from facial injectables. Also, it provides the necessary tools for confident and successful problem-solving should they ever arise such as managing blindness as the bedside, delayed onset nodules, hylenex vs hyaluronidase, the controversy over aspiration, sterile field, ultrasound in aesthetics and much, much more. 

These candid interviews provide you with the facts without any pretense. Simply good folk who want to enhance the safety of aesthetics for all of us. Interviewing these experts was a privilege for me. I can't stress enough how crucial it is in this field to work together, develop connections and share experiences good and bad in order to advance the industry for both patients and us!

This important information will help you understand things easier while also easing your anxiety about potential problems. In the end, we want to provide the greatest care possible for our patients and avoid having panic attacks in the middle of the night.

Aesthetic Nurse BSc, Regenerate Skin Care, Publisher

Mike’s first qualification was his BSC majoring in anatomy at Monash University. In this course, Mike gained a vast insight into human anatomy and physiology through comprehensive theoretical work, and in practice by performing many dissections of cadavers.

Mike began his career in medical aesthetics with Allergan, the makers of anti-wrinkle injections and fillers, being educated on techniques from some of the best injectors globally throughout a six-year period. Mike worked with Dr Mauricio De Maio, Dr Michael Kane, Dr Ava Shamban, Dr Mary Lupo, Dr Alastair Carruthers, Dr Jean Carruthers, Dr Herve Respaldo, Dr Steven Liew, Professor Greg Goodman and many more talented ‘OG’ doctors. Basically, he learned from the best of the best.

Thereafter, an imperative part of Mike’s experience came from his yearly training at Allergan and for a further for 2 years, Mike managed the entire training process in Australia and New Zealand encompassing the launch Juvéderm for which he was the National Clinical Manager.

Since, Mike has performed over 40,000 injection treatments through a career spanning 18 years for both his own practice, Facelove and for multiple other clinics including Professor Greg Goodman AM’s Dermatology Institute of Victoria.

In the past 18 years, Mike has trained over 4000 doctors and nurses in the art of injecting both muscle relaxants and dermal fillers across the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, India, Malaysia and the Philippines in addition to consulting for such well-esteemed companies as Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Galderma Pharmaceuticals, FILL MED Art Filler, HUGEL aesthetics and Croma Pharmaceuticals Austria.

Mike is published in 8 peer reviewed medical journals. The most notable of which is the first reversal of blindness caused by dermal filler by injecting hyaluronidase deeply into the supra-orbital notch . Notably, this is now accepted as the gold standard for hyaluronic acid dissolving in a visual disturbance event after many other repeated cases vs the inferior retrobulbar injection.

In terms of his practice, Mike is passionate about natural, undetectable results for all of his patients, placing great importance on safe realistic and reliable outcomes
