  • Review basic dermatology and the dermatologic conditions requiring aesthetic enhancement including lentigenes (brown spots), telangiectasias (redspots), wrinkles, elastosis (skin laxity), melasma, cellulite, acne, dysplasia, unwanted hair and unwanted veins
  • Understand Fitzpatrick Skin Typing to effectively predict individual patient's reaction to both chemical and light based aesthetic treatments
  • Understand laser physics and the principles of laser and light tissue interactions. This includes a review of selective photothermolysis, ablative skin resurfacing, non-ablative skin resurfacing, fractional skin resurfacing, photodynamic therapy and photomodulation
  • Be conversant in all of the light based aesthetic devices including lasers (KTP, Ruby, Pulsed Dye, Diode, Nd:YAG, Er:YAG, YSGG, CO2), Intense Pulsed Light, and Light Emitting Diodes and the important features in selecting these devices and the appropriate use for each device
  • Understand the best practice standards for the light based treatment of dermatologic conditions requiring aesthetic enhancement including patient selection, patient education, treatment planning, treatment applications, and pre and post procedural care. These conditions include hyperpigmentation, telangiectasias, wrinkles, skin laxity, unwanted hair, unwanted veins, acne, dysplasia and cellulite
  • Review the important safety precautions for aesthetic use of lasers and light for the patient and the aesthetic provider
  • Discuss the potential adverse events when using lasers and light and how to avoid and treat these complications
  • Participate in an interactive session with prominent luminaries performing sate of the art laser and light based treatments on live patients demonstrating appropriate aesthetic enhancements and treatment planning
  • Review the Rubin skin classification system to determine the dermal depth of cosmetic defects requiring correction and understand how to achieve this depth with the various chemical peeling agents
  • Analyze the mechanism of action of the peeling agents used in aesthetic chemical resurfacing including retinols, enzymes, alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, Jessner solution, TCA, phenol, and combination peels
  • Develop effective treatment plans and protocols for dermatologic conditions using aesthetic chemical peeling including patient selection, choosing the ideal peeling agent, patient education, and pre and post peel care
