Upon completion of the module, the participant will:
Demonstrate a working knowledge of aesthetic energy based devices including Lasers (KTP, Ruby, Pulsed Dye, Diode, Nd:YAG, ErYAG, YSGG, CO2), Intense Pulsed Light, Radiofrequency, Ultrasound, and Light Emitting Diodes and the important features in selecting each device and their appropriate aesthetic applications
Demonstrate the ability to accurately diagnose dermatologic conditions requiring energy based aesthetic treatments including lentigenes (brown spots), atypical lesions, dysplastic lesions (cancers), telangiectasias (redspots), wrinkles, elastosis (skin laxity), melasma, cellulite, acne, dysplasia, unwanted hair, veins, and tattoos
Recognize abnormal skin conditions requiring biopsy prior to light based treatments and effective treatment protocols
Review the technical considerations of energy based devices with expert luminaries and understand what these mean in clinical practice
Gain experience in conducting aesthetic consultations with patients desiring correction of dermatologic conditions or aesthetic defects with aesthetic devices. This includes experience in diagnosis and effective treatment planning with "best practice" standards in choosing the correct device and energy
The necessary treatment forms and protocols are included with patient information, pre and post procedure care, procedure record, and patient consent forms
Gain experience in Fitzpatrick skin typing to accurately prescribe the correct modality and treatment parameters for optimal results and avoidance of complications
Understand how to adjust the parameters of fluence, pulse width, cooling, and treatment times on aesthetic devices to provide safe and effective treatments
Recognize the desired clinical endpoints and tissue interactions for the treatment of lentigenes (brown spots), atypical lesions, dysplastic lesions (cancers), telangiectasias (redspots), wrinkles, elastosis (skin laxity), melasma, cellulite, acne, dysplasia, unwanted hair, veins and tatoos
Review the treatment protocol used in photodynamic therapy and it's clinical application in skin rejuvenation, acne, actinic keratosis and skin cancer.
Participate in an interactive session with aesthetic experts demonstrations offering energy based aesthetic treatments for all indications according to "best practice" standards on live models.
Provide energy based treatments for all aesthetic indications on live patients including the aesthetic consultations, treatment planning, pre and post care, choosing the appropriate device and treatment parameters and delivering the treatment. These treatments will be done in a clinical setting with expert luminaries to ensure safety and efficacy
When combined with Module II of The Aesthetic Fellowship, attendees will achieve both expert knowledge and expert clinical skill to provide true excellence in the delivery of energy based aesthetic treatments
