Presenter Disclosures

Educational Needs This session will explore parameters for laser treatment for different skin lesions for multiple medical indications still needs optimization. It is a challenge for the practicing physician to choose not only the right device for the intervention but also the choice of parameters remains a challenge as research is often still unsatisfactory. By actively exchanging and discussing device choices and treatments parameters for different medical indications the participant will enhance their knowledge about laser and energy-based devices, will be more at ease with laser and energy based device settings and ultimately will have satisfying outcomes for the physician and most of all for their patients.

Participants Any practitioner using laser and energy-based devices in medical applications.

Background Requirements A solid background knowledge of laser and energy-based device application will be helpful to join the in depth discussion. However even beginning laser and energy-based device  practitioners will have the opportunity to discuss their difficulties encountered in their daily practice.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives The attendees are expected to come out after the session with a better understanding about how to optimize laser parameters for specific indications to improve the outcome and avoid unwanted side effects. Attendants will also learn about new indications in which laser and energy-based devices might be a valid alternative treatment tool. Attendees will furthermore have the opportunity to learn about and share their own practical treatment pearls within the discussion of each presentation.

"Hot topics"

  • Non-ablative peri-ocular rejuvenation: significant improvement of the peri-ocular area with no or minimal down time can now be achieved.
  • MRI Assisted laser ablation of Prostate cancer: Finally instead of shooting in the dark, with the aid of the MRI, the malignant tissue can be better identified and treated with laser ablation which can significantly minimize the recurrence, a real breakthrough.
  • Treatment of chronic radiation dermatitis: although significant improvements have been made in the last decades in radiotherapy, radiation dermatitis is still a problem facing a large percentage of the treated patients. Effective tools are available to treat chronic radiation dermatitis once installed. Unfortunately these tools are not yet used in routine clinical practice.
