MedEsthetics attended this year’s annual American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Conference and I am happy to share some of the highlights with our readers. I had the chance to get an inside look on the latest research into new treatment techniques, data on exciting new products and other exciting developments in the world of facial aesthetics, both here and around the world.
Faculty and doctors from the U.S. and abroad came to discuss innovations in treating facial aging and skin conditions of various ethnicities, exploring aging differences in the facial anatomy of different ethnicities, treating our increasingly gender diverse population, new and already approved toxins for facial aesthetic treatments and much more.
