At the 30th annual American Society for Lasers in Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) meeting in Phoenix. Arizona last weekend, I presented a variety of talks. These included: 1) Pearls and Problems in the Laser Treatment of Unwanted Hair and Pigmented Lesions; 2) My Approach to Laser Facial Rejuvenation; 3) Problems with Laser Treatment in Medspas; 4) The Use of the Cutera Pearl Fractionated Er:YSGG laser for wrinkles around the mouth; and 5) a 10 Year Look at Laser Treatments of Tattoos in our Offices.
The highlights of my talks focused on the novel laser treatment concepts including the use of 1) the new Syneron eMatrix fractionated radiofrequency device for acne scars; 2) treatment of resistant melasma with multiple sessions of Q-switched Nd:YAG laser treatment; 3) the increasing incidence of complications seen at poor quality, low priced medspas; 4) the success we can now have in treating wrinkles around the mouth and 5) the future of newer lasers for more effective treatment of tattoos.
Last weekend we were in Phoenix. This week, Dr. Pozner and I are both lecturing at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) meeting in Washington, DC. Stay tuned!
