U049 - Avoiding Complications and Maximizing Results in Laser Surgery

Sunday, February 18; 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify and avoid common complications in laser surgery.
  • Implement and apply strategies for managing laser complications.
  • Discuss some basics of laser physics and skin biology as it pertains to laser surgery, and apply this knowledge to diagnose which conditions are amenable to laser treatment.

Description

A comprehensive overview of lasers and other energy-based devices will be covered. An introduction to the physics and biology behind laser-tissue interactions will be presented to enable avoiding common complications and maximizing results of laser surgery. The presenters have extensive experience with a very wide range of devices and can offer their individual pearls and approaches to using modern lasers and energy-based devices. At the completion of the course, attendees should have a better understanding of lasers and energy-based devices, how to use them more safely, and apply this knowledge to manage complications more effectively when they occur.
