ASDS Opens Registration for Its Highly Rated “Advanced Injection Techniques” Course

Co-Directors Drs. Vince Bertucci and Sue Ellen Cox will lead a two-day educational course for experienced dermatologic surgeons in New York on Sept. 9-10, 2023.

Schaumburg, IL, June 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) is pleased to announce the return of its highly rated “Advanced Injection Techniques” course for experienced cosmetic dermatologic surgeons looking to stay on top of their craft and learn the latest techniques for patient safety and optimal results.

Up to 80 dermatologic surgeons will gather in New York City’s Financial District on Sept. 9-10, 2023, to learn from acclaimed experts led by ASDS President Vince Bertucci, MD, FRCPC, and ASDS Immediate Past President Sue Ellen Cox, MD. Through expanded live patient demonstrations, real-world case studies, advanced technique “how to” videos from expert injectors and faculty Q&A panels, the content will cover facial analysis and applied anatomy for the upper, mid and lower face; how to restore volume and augment features with natural-looking results; and a practical overview of complications.

“This course has become a staple in the Society’s educational curriculum for its effective instruction on proper techniques to achieve optimal patient outcomes with the utmost regard for safety to avoid complications,” said Dr. Bertucci, who has co-directed the course since 2016. “Year after year, attendees give the course 5-star ratings, raving about the ‘outstanding review of injection-related anatomy and approaches’ and ‘ability to visualize the art of injection through the faculty’s shared case studies.’ This feedback helped us formulate the 2023 agenda to include an entire session for live patient demonstrations, followed by a Q&A panel.”

The knowledge shared and procedural skills gained through this course will be invaluable and will earn attendees a maximum of 10.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ following their completion of the course evaluation. Attendees will also have dedicated time to converse with other experienced dermatologic surgeons and industry representatives in the exhibit area during networking meals and breaks.
