This is a 90-minute demonstration on the evaluation and treatment of the aging face using non-surgical aesthetic lasers. The session will be hosted by Dr. Donald Groot and Dr. Richard Green.

The program will begin with a description of the aging face followed by a brief overview of laser physics. Physicians will demonstrate laser treatments on real patients and describe several clinical approaches to achieve skin rejuvenation. Specific subjects will include: facial vascular conditions, pigmented lesions, facial wrinkles, uneven skin texture, skin tightening-and a new skin resurfacing wavelength that provides full epidermal turnover with minimal patient downtime in only one or two 15-minute treatments.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 11.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the United States in 2006 with non-surgical procedures making up 83% of the total. Americans spent approximately $12.2 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2006.

Donald Groot, MD is a board-certified dermatologist and clinical professor of medicine at the University of Alberta and is considered a leading authority on cosmetic laser surgery and the impact of aging on the skin. Richard Green, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Vancouver, Washington and has successfully combined both surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures for more than 12 years. Both physicians bring expertise from two different specialties and will deliver a balanced overview of non-surgical aesthetic medical lasers.
