Fractional Laser & Light Based Technologies
Friday, March 01
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Tina S. Alster, MD, FAAD
- Henry H.L. Chan, MD
- Roy G. Geronemus, MD, FAAD - Handout
- Dieter Manstein, MD
- Andrei Metelitsa, MD, FAAD
- Jill S. Waibel, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Discuss the current indications, limitations, and potential for fractional laser and light-based devices in dermatology.
- Identify possible side effects and complications of fractionated skin resurfacing procedures and develop strategies to prevent and treat them.
- Devise a working algorithm for the clinical use of fractionated devices, including preoperative assessment, intraoperative treatment protocol, and postoperative follow-up.
This session is appropriate for experienced and potential users of fractional laser and light technologies. Specific treatment protocols will be outlined and tips to optimize clinical outcomes will be shared. The expert faculty will use evidence-based approaches to examine the strengths and weaknesses of current fractional technology. A review of fractionated laser skin resurfacing in varying skin tones and conditions as well as a discussion of future technologic applications will provide the attendee with the latest advancements in the field.
