Advances in Regenerative Medicine: Best Practices to Enhance Results in Facial Rejuvenation

Jason J. Emer, M.D., West Hollywood, CA
JD McCoy, N.M.D., Gilbert, AZ

To tailor treatments that address the anatomy, desires and expectations of individual patients, aesthetic clinicians need to understand how to effectively and safely use the growing variety of non-invasive therapeutic options alone and in combination. This is especially true regarding evolving, innovative, regenerative therapies for aging cells and tissues, such as long-acting biostimulatory soft tissue fillers, platelet-rich plasma and autologous fat transfer. This activity is designed to educate aesthetic clinicians regarding optimal use of regenerative therapies as a fundamental component of individualized facial rejuvenation.

This event is open to all registered attendees.
