This in one of my favourite conferences as it provides a rare occasion for dermatologists to catch up with not only our immediate colleagues, but research scientists and plastic surgeons.   Organised by the University of California and the Skin Disease Education Foundation we discussed new treatments using lasers, light and radio frequency and a variety of combination treatments for skin rejuvenation and body contouring.

My lecture covered fillers and the latest combined treatments to replace facial volume loss and skin ageing, highlighting the benefits and safety of these methods.   I also touched on new concepts in treating scars, with lasers and radio frequencies to not only improve but reduce thickened and hollow scars.

Thank you to the organisers for such an inspiring meeting.
