First official day of the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology Conference 2013
I particularly got a lot great ideas and info regarding Botox and Fillers (Juvederm). I was very interested in the way they treated complications.
I also attended sessions that talked about social media, habits of very successful cosmetic practices, blogging, reviews, thank you notes, patient surveys, and the usage of YouTube videos. I hope to act on much of this. It was almost info overload. And this was only day 1.
Plastic Surgery Related Booths we visited
- Operative headlamp company – about $800 for a head lamp. 3 hour-4 hour battery life. LED bulb!
- Zein Obagi. Looked at the differences between Zein Obagi and Obagi
- Touch MD – incredible stuff indeed. Touch MD is a technological way to visually share the plastic surgical consultation with the patient. There’s a program component which resides on the computer and then there’s a “cloud” component where the data resides. The data can be accessed from many other devices and webpages via secure methods. This is a great addition to EMR. And perhaps would be a great addition to our plastic surgical practice in Modesto, CA. They said that currently they don’t have any doctors in Modesto, CA who have Touch MD. It also has a back end for picture management.
We were originally going to see a show, but instead we talked with the guys at Touch MD.
TiZO3 and Lip Balm
We found an an amazing Sun Screen for the lips. It is made by the Fallene company in their Solar Protection Formula line. TIZO is among one of their products. Dr. Tammy Wu said that she has been looking for a lip balm that is a physical / mineral based for awhile. We just found the LipTect product at the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery conference. Along with this, we also found the TiZO3 sunscreen for the face. It has Titanium, Iron, and Zinc. It is Paraben, Oil, PABA and fragrance free. It is also tinted and is a very water resistant formula. We will have the LipTect (Lip balm) and TiZO3 sunscreen available for purchase at Surgical Artistry, Modesto, CA. Dr. Calvin Lee (me) takes credit for introducing Dr. Tammy Wu to the booth, and Dr. Wu made the decision to make an opening order! One more reason for this – it would be an great product to protect a lip augmentation investment.
