SCALE Conference 2018: What to Expect

CEUs, Training & Trends

From May 10-12, Nashville will play host to nearly 800 medical professionals at the 13th annual SCALE conference at the Music City Center.

Hosted by the Tennessee Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the Symposium for Cosmetic Advances and Laser Surgery is the nation's most recognized educational event focused on lasers and energy based devices, injectables for cosmetic concerns, skin care, practice management and medical dermatology.

Founded by local cosmetic surgeons Brian Biesman, MD, FACS, and Michael Gold, MD, FAAD, the SCALE conference has grown to include an international audience and faculty members from across North America who are widely recognized as industry leaders. Attendees receive 21 hours of continuing medical education over the three-day event.

"In the cosmetic and aesthetic space, there are a lot of meetings, but Dr. Biesman and I continually bring in the best and brightest new faculty, which allows attendees to stay ahead of the curve," Gold said. "Being in Nashville, we're also in a healthcare mecca and are very fortunate to be a part of that change in this city."


What to Expect

SCALE has continually evolved to address the latest in industry changes. For 2018, plenary lectures offer attendees three distinct tracks each day, with topics ranging from hair replacement and scar treatment to psoriasis and feminine health. Additional courses are designed specifically for practice managers, including a session on navigating negative social media reviews - a dilemma faced by most providers at some point.

Also new in 2018, SCALE will include its first-ever facial dissection cadaver lab. Led by John Moore, MD, and Jason Pozner, MD, the full-face surgical anatomy and injection course is designed to improve the safety of neurotoxin and dermal filler injections for clinicians.

"Part of what we preach is knowing the anatomy under the skin, so we're bringing in phenomenal plastic surgeons to help attendees," Gold said. Patients will be injected on stage following the four-hour CME demonstration. Utilizing multiple camera angles and presented on two screens in high-def, attendees will have the opportunity to immediately correlate the pre- and post- injection appearance of the live patient with the exact anatomic location on the cadaver. Working in small groups, participants also will probe and explore specimens under faculty guidance in order to observe subtle differences in facial anatomy and muscle structure variations likely to be observed in their own practices.


Always Improving

"This conference has grown up nicely because of a lot of hard work from our organizers," Gold said. "The interesting thing is that we're never satisfied so as soon as we're done, we'll regroup and say, 'What did we do right and wrong?' We're always making improvements. If you want to learn from the best, there's no other meeting like this around."
