Boston, MA: June 7 and 8, 2014

Quickly evolving advances in devices and techniques -- along with expanded publicity -- have increased patient demand and expectations for laser procedures. ASDS members performed 1.68 million laser/light procedures in 2012 according to the ASDS Survey on Dermatologic Procedures

Join ASDS experts during this interactive course to examine new treatment options, embrace emerging technologies such as skin tightening and hair stimulation, learn new techniques to add predictability and safety to procedures and identify and address peri-procedure assessment and possible complications.
