Glimpse of the future at IMCAS conference...

There are a wide variety of excellent cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery meetings in the US each year. However, there are almost no meetings in the US where these 2 groups can learn from each other. This is not true in Paris where the annual International Masters Course on Aging Skin (IMCAS) meets from January 8-11, 2009. This international forum brings cosmetic dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other aesthetic physicians all under one roof at the Palais des Congress de Paris – the major meeting convention center in Paris.

IMCAS, a meeting that I have co-directed for almost a decade, represents the place where US dermatologists and plastic surgeons have a chance to learn about a variety of cosmetic treatments not yet available in the US. Similarly the large US faculty, including Dr. Pozner and myself have the opportunity to teach our colleagues from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East about some of the latest techniques that are popular in the US – yet not available elsewhere in the world.

The topics run the full gamut from true surgical procedures, to the latest in lasers, fillers and botulinum toxins – as well advances in the treatment of cellulite, skin stem cell anti-aging advances for beautiful skin and mesotherapy.

The 20 US physicians who will teach at this meeting will not only bring US knowledge to their international peers, but will come back with the latest cosmetic treatments for our US patients as well. Stay tuned in a couple of weeks for highlights of the meeting.
