Educational Needs Laser and energy-based surgery is a rapidly changing field with many new devices coming out every year.  Aside from this, there is a very specific art in how and when to use these devices. While most training programs offer hands-on experience with a variety of devices, the objective of this activity is to have leading experts give their results in using specific techniques and protocols treating the most difficult conditions.

Participants This activity is designed for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and others who have experience in treating patients with laser and energy-based devices.

Background Requirements Attendees should have a strong working knowledge of lasers and energy-based devices.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives It is expected that participants in this activity will identify gaps in their knowledge, competence or performance in treating specific conditions such as scars, melasma, hyperhidrosis, cellulite and pigmented lesions and using lasers and/or energy-based devices in unique ways, such as the use of lasers to enhance wound healing
