Today’s highlights involved meeting the worlds most prolific injector of Botox. He works in Singapore. He gave a great lecture about injecting Botox in a certain way which could work for some Keloid scars. The protocol is detailed and he shared it with the attendees of the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology Conference.
I attended a few sessions on laser and Cool Sculpting. Cool Sculpting is a method of non surgical fat reduction. It uses the idea of cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting is a trademark owned by Zeltiq. They hosted a cocktail hour at the conference at around 6:15pm tonight.
I got a chance to greet the reps for Allergan at the Convention. What was interesting today for me was getting more information about doing virtual patient follow ups. I didn’t think I was ready for such a thing, but it’s out there. It’s kind of like recording your post op visit on a secure youtube website and then having the doctor review it later and write you some secure email.
I particularly liked the sessions on TCA peeling.
We also spent some time with another cosmetic plastic surgeon from Modesto, CA. It was good to see another familiar face at the meeting.
In the evening, there was a dinner program put together by Valeant – the owners of Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra, Dysport, Obagi, and Renova (a form of Tretinoin). We saw some live amazing cosmetic injection techniques by some legendary doctors.
I am getting so overloaded with all this great information!
