Clinical Applications - Cutaneous - Abstract Session

Saturday, April 14 | 1:30 PM - 5:30 PM | Room: Trinity Ballroom

Participants This session is for all health care practitioners, engineers, scientists, or any interested individuals working with lasers and energy-based devices. All heath care personnel will benefit by learning how to maximize results of treatment of cutaneous conditions while minimizing complications.

Background Requirements Participants with a basic understanding of skin biology and physics will derive maximal benefit from the presentations, however, all meeting attendees are welcome to attend and contribute.

Educational Needs/Expected Learning Objectives This session will explore the use of lasers and energy-based devices to treat a wide spectrum of cutaneous conditions. Controlled studies demonstrating objective evidence in support of new devices and new uses of established devices will be presented. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in discussion of the presented data. Updating current knowledge on the use of energy-based devices as well as maximizing results and minimizing complications will be a prime objective of this session.

Hot Topics

  • Pigment: Treating it becomes cool
  • Picosecond Technology: Expanding horizons and applications
  • Fat Removal: Getting closer to making the scalpel obsolete

Chair(s) Paul M. Friedman, MD; Omar A. Ibrahimi, MD, PhD

 Expert Q&A Panelist(s) Tina S. Alster, MD; Jeffrey S. Dover, MD, FRCPC; Arielle N. Kauvar, MD; Christopher B. Zachary, MBBS, FRCP
