Cosmetic dermatology procedures and treatment options in injectables, devices and minimally invasive techniques have continued to dramatically increase in popularity in recent years. With an abundance of cosmetic dermatology procedures and treatment options for patients to choose from, it is imperative that medical practitioners are familiar with the scientific evidence, efficacy and safety of the different treatments to best meet their patients’ needs. The New Frontiers in Cosmetic Medicine and Medical Dermatology (NFCMMD) Symposium will discuss trends in cosmetic medicine and medical dermatology, while taking care to educate attendees on the science behind the multitude of procedures and treatment options available. The Symposium will utilize several proven learning techniques, such as live patient workshops, expert panel question and answer sessions, and interactive roundtable discussions.
