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
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
