Dermabrasion: Old School or Here to Stay and Why?
Steven M. Levine, MD
Resurfacing procedures are not new, but they are often misunderstood. In essence, all resufacing procedures are capable of accomplishing similar goals. Frequently the decision as to which form to use is based on preference of the provider. This talk will examine the role of dermabrasion in facial resurfacing. Specific indications for dermabrasion will be discussed, as well as a comprehensive discussion of patient selection and avoidance of complications. Finally, we will compare and contrast dermabrasion to other resurfacing techniques such as laser or chemical peels.

Conscious Sedation Provided by Registered Nurses at an Outpatient Surgery Center: Is it Safe?
Stacey Weaver, RN
Conscious sedation is defined as an altered level of consciousness whereas the patient is in a state of relaxation, while maintaining the ability to protect the airway. It has gained substantial acceptance among plastic surgeons, as the number of ambulatory surgical procedures is continuously increasing. Avoiding general anesthesia generates benefits such as decreased operative risks, and improved postoperative recuperation. As more patients become aware of this option, it is important that surgeons and nursing staff become familiar with the technique. We present our experience with the administration of conscious sedation by qualified registered nurses, and the combination of drugs involved.

After an in-depth look at the muscles under the skin (Mrs. Hotta's lecture), this presentation will demonstrate how to isolate muscles of the face that contribute to facial aging. As importantly, this lecture will help the aesthetic injector to avoid and treat untoward responses.

How Do We Choose the Best Type For Neck Rejuvenation?
Patrick Sullivan, MD
How do we choose the best type for neck rejuvenation? We are excited to be able to offer so many options for neck rejuvenation. We are happy to be using Kybella for those excessive fatty deposits in the neck in selected situations. Kybella is the only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that helps address those deposits. What is Kybella? Deoxycholic acid (Kybella) is a naturally occurring fat dissolving agent that is already in our bodies. Kybella actually does its job by destroying the fat cells themselves. Who is a good candidate for Kybella or surgery? Dr. Sullivan will listen to what the patient is looking to achieve. Then he will do a careful examination.

Weird but True! When Filler and Toxin Does Goes Awry!
MK Maloney, RN, BA, CMR, CANS
Although all faces are different, we as aesthetic injectable providers are trained to accomodate these differences. Many times we may be presented with a patient from a different practice or state that has an obvious adverse event or unfavorable and less than optimum outcome. A visual presentation will demonstrate some of these common events.
