Dr. Alex attended the 73rd annual conference of the American Academy of Dermatology March 19-24, 2015 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. This is a large conference with of 10,000 people in attendance where dermatologists from all over the world come to learn about what is new in dermatology. There are hundreds of lectures starting at 7 AM every day as well as many ancillary events sponsored by various companies. Dr. Alex attended many courses and learned about cosmetics, treatment of melasma, fractional lasers, treatment of acne scars, chemical peels, injectables, and treatment of those with darker skin types. The exhibit hall featured various companies from pharmaceutical companies to laser manufacturers to skin care lines. This year there were so many exhibitors that the exhibition was expanded to halls in three different buildings. Some of the new investments that A E Skin made there included new, more comfortable eye shields for laser treatments and custom ice packs for Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma treatments. In the evenings Dr. Alex attended lectures sponsored by In Mode lasers, Allergan (makers of Botox, Juvederm, Latisse, and Voluma), Sciton lasers, Cool Sculpting, and Fotona lasers. Throughout the conference Dr. Alex caught up with old friends and colleagues from around the country. It was a busy and exhausting, yet most enjoyable and valueable trip. Dr. Alex will be speaking at the 2015 Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas in July 2015, another outstanding conference and looks forward to the American Academy of Dermatology conference next year in Washington, DC.
