The course objectives will emphasize new techniques and technologies while also critically evaluating current treatment practices, free of commercial interference from industry. Clinical endpoints and laser safety will be emphasized as well.

Participants will leave the course understanding new treatment paradigms with lasers, embrace emerging technologies such as noninvasive treatment of fat and understand where some of the current practices are irrational or based upon weak evidence. This will be a critical,
well-informed, clinically relevant course. Proper patient evaluation and proper aesthetic techniques will be emphasized.
