Leading the way through innovation in medical aesthetic teaching, Dr Sabrina’s new Oculo-Facial Aesthetic Academy (OFAA) Virtual Reality App will bring aesthetic training into the twenty-first century. For the very first time, medical practitioners from across the world will be able to watch live training procedures through the eyes of Dr Sabrina without even leaving home.
Renowned for her bespoke eye and face restoration and rejuvenation, Dr Sabrina is utilising the latest innovations in technology to make it easier than ever to access leading industry training. By using the app, practitioners, especially those based overseas, can save time and money by avoiding lengthy and strenuous travelling.
Wearing the headset, medical practitioners will learn holistic facial assessment, advanced filler injection techniques, detailed cadaver anatomy and gain practical knowledge on how to use hyaluronidase to manage complications. This will enable trainees to access valuable and up to date, relevant knowledge all at their fingertips.
It’s the first device to see everything in a 3D way and everything is so clear as if you are in a real situation in the room.

It’s not just for overseas or remote practitioners –providing unrivalled flexibility, the new technology also enables medical practitioners to maintain continuous professional development following their initial formal training and in the event of a vascular emergency, skills can be refreshed within seconds, by accessing techniques on a handheld device, to support a practitioner in managing catastrophic emergencies all alone.
“I want to unleash the potential of aesthetic training by fusing it with modern technology, to give practitioners the best possible learning experience,” said Dr Sabrina. “We have come a long way from traditional classroom lectures and paper-based learning and more and more practitioners are looking to update their knowledge using modern technology. Delegates want to learn in their own time, without the expense and challenges of attending conferences and this is exactly what the OFAA Virtual Reality App offers.”
As an avid educator, Dr Sabrina has become aware that a one or two-day training course, without access to scientifically relevant updates, was failing in upskilling or re-skilling practitioners, something she feels can be resolved through the app.
“Ongoing CPD assessments allow learning to be conscious and proactive rather than passive and reactive,” added Dr Sabrina. “Aesthetic practitioners will find this app extremely beneficial to enhance and maintain their skills and proficiency throughout their careers.”
“I have a strong passion for teaching and I want to carry on contributing to raising the bar high in our specialty.”
