OBJECTIVES

 
Upon completion the participant will be able to discuss the fundamental tools for aesthetic light application with both lasers and intense pulse light in patient care. The discussion will include basic and advanced light theory, safety, and application including safe and effective parameters and avoidance of both pain and complication.
     

INSTRUCTOR/SPEAKER DISCLOSURE STATEMENT

     
  The instructors and/or speakers who provide training services for Medical Laser Dynamics, Inc. do not have a financial interest or affiliation with the manufacturer of any of the products, devices, or services to be discussed in the content this activity.

Success with patient treatments and outcomes continually boils down to a few topics. The most common is 'how do I adjust the laser to get the best outcome for my patient going forward through the treatment series?' Users find themselves in a quandary when they need to step outside factory presets for the best outcome for the patient. What can be changed without complication to the patient? Is there a reason why the presets are chosen and which is the better component to change for this patient? Which makes more sense, a change in pulse time, energy level, cooling or even wavelength?

Just like any other prescription a physician will write, the selection of laser parameters, timing and frequency of treatments must be defined and explained. A physician will not say 'here is a bottle of pills now go take them'. Instead he will give a specific dosage, titrating it to the individuals needs.

Both new and experienced laser users ask how and why lasers do what they do and how to best use them. Most want the ability to better understand lasers and pulsed light. We provide a non-biased academic 'look behind the curtains' for the user to understand the same basics and advanced concepts of clinical use that manufacturer's use in development of these devices.

In all our years of academic training we find there are core questions from every user. We don't provide clinical answers; rather we do try to provide the building blocks of light tissue interaction for the user to better determine how they can come up with those answers.

The concept is simple, small interactive classes (no more than 20 attendees) with an eye on the endpoints, potential risks and what key components determine and influence those endpoints. With that in mind our attendees have been delighted with the two day course.

The course is great at any experience level, and in fact, most attendees learn best when the course mix is a little of all experience levels. We promote communication between the attendees and those discussions open doors to topics we, and they, never imagined. Manufacturers often spend time with the physician and staff on how to use a device. We concentrate on what the components of the usage are and help the course attendee better understand why.

We appreciate you considering us as an educational option and believe that you will find the same successes with your clients that others have.
