IMCAS Wrap Up: Day 2

Drs. Michael Kane and Mark Jewell presented the initial science behind Liposonix, while Dr. Afschin Fatemi from Germany presented his early clinical experiences. Most interesting were the combined deep and superficial treatments he performed with this ultrasound device. Dr. Goldberg recently talked about ultrasound devices with Self Magazine (PDF).

Dieter Manstein, MD presented his work with the Zeltiq cryolipolysis device, which Dr. Goldberg is also working with for a clinical study. For the uninitiated, Cryolipolysis is a patented method that removes fat via a precise cooling process.

It's going to be an interesting next few years with the war between the fat removal devices. We posted on this a few months ago after the ASPS conference. Dr. Goldberg was a coauthor of an abstract recently presented about the early clinical wok with the Zeltiq device.

Here's Dr. Goldberg sharing a moment with Bob Tyson from Zeltiq at their booth:

On another note, it was standing room only in the lectures about fractional laser resurfacing. Many physicians presented about the different fractional lasers out there, including Dr. Goldberg and myself. I spoke about fractional laser complications as did Dr. Christopher Zachary shown in the photo below sharing a moment with Dr. Michael Kane.
