Symposium Featured Latest in Aesthetic Medicine

More than 800 cosmetic surgeons, clinicians and industry professionals descended on the Music City Center May 10-12 for the 13th annual SCALE conference.

Hosted by the Tennessee Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (TSLMS), the Symposium for Cosmetic Advances and Laser Surgery (SCALE) is an annual educational event focused on lasers and energy-based devices, injectables for cosmetic concerns, skin care, research updates, practice management and medical dermatology. The conference was founded by Nashville-based cosmetic surgeons Brian Biesman, MD, and Michael Gold, MD, and has grown to become one of the largest and most respected industry events nationwide.

Attendees received 21 hours of continuing medical education over three days and learned from some of the most respected leaders in the field. Guest faculty included experts from UCLA, Cornell, Harvard, NYU, Yale, the University of California and numerous other cutting edge programs in the United States and abroad. "We had an all-star faculty this year with phenomenal guests, and it was really helpful for attendees to hear from the top physicians in the field," Biesman said.

In addition, more than 120 vendors were on hand to showcase the latest products, answer questions, and discuss industry needs with SCALE attendees. "Besides looking at existing approaches, attendees learned a lot about new treatments from injectables, topicals, and devices that aren't yet on the market," said Biesman. "It's really a glimpse into the future and very interesting to get insight from the people working on those new products."


Breaking Ground

A highlight of the May event was the first-ever facial dissection cadaver lab. Led by John Moore, MD, and Jason Pozner, MD, the full-face surgical anatomy and injection course was designed to improve the safety of neurotoxin and dermal filler injections for clinicians. "The workshop was a really neat addition and was well received by attendees," Biesman said. "Our goal was to demonstrate those structures that are considered danger zones, which we want to avoid during injectable treatments and surgery." Following the cadaver demonstration, the workshop's 80 attendees continued injectables training on live models.

Founders Gold and Biesman also hosted presentations and moderated panels with live patient demos, including seminars on treating facial acne scars, injectables and body contouring. The conference included special symposiums devoted to acne, psoriasis, scar and wound healing, and atopic dermatitis and chronic skin disease.


Looking Ahead

Plans are already underway for the 2019 event. Biesman said the conference's high energy combined with the upbeat atmosphere of the Music City Center create a positive, unparalleled environment in which to mingle, network and learn.

"SCALE is a phenomenal experience for physicians and anyone interested in either aesthetics or medical dermatology," Biesman said. "You can't find a better or more efficient way to get that amount of quality education, faculty and presentations in such a short period of time."
