Dr. Michael Persky has jumped out in front with his blog entries about The Aesthetic Show, the new aesthetic medicine-related meeting (trade show) currently unfolding in Las Vegas.
I considered going to this show and will likely clear my schedule for it next year. Seeing as how I'm not there, I am happy to present and link to Persky's blog and the entry titled, What Happened in Vegas Won't Stay in Vegas.
It's a fun, well-written adventure. Excerpts:
The largest buzz of the meeting was non-invasive aesthetic treatments for fat sculpting and facial rejuvenation. Laser and light treatments are definitely in, and the wars on cellulite have officially begun. Fractionated CO2 lasers for facial rejuvenation (Fraxel repair, Deep FX, mixto, smartxide dot, and others) are the wave of the future for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Fat and cellulite are very popular treatment options. Smartlipo and Vaser high definition body sculpting were featured with impressive results.
David Matlock, MD presented his Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation techniques, including The G-Spot Shot. Imagine my surprise when I arrived to the meeting on the first day a little late (as a facial plastic surgeon) into the large, darkened convention center general session room with a vagina projected on the screen. After rushing from the airport to the convention center, I thought that I had walked into the wrong medical convention.
