Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), infrared treatments and laser procedures are some of the most popular anti aging treatments currently available, and have proven to be effective at reducing the sign of wrinkles, tightening up the skin and bringing back 'that youthful glow.'
As technology continues to improve, more anti aging doctors and medical professionals are turning to a lineup of innovative energy devices that complement dermal fillers and other skin rejuvenation procedures, claiming that a combination of heat, light and radiofrequency waves may be the ultimate solution for restoring the skin to good health and maintaining a youthful appearance.
The Art and Science of Using Injectable Agents and Energy-based Devices for Facial Aesthetic Enhancement event will be held from March 27 to 29, 2009 in Las Vegas, and the symposium will be reviewing several innovative treatments and technologies designed specifically for the anti aging market.
One of the educational objectives at the symposium is to "Perform a comprehensive facial aesthetic analysis to determine which areas would benefit from treatment with injectable agents, energy-based devices, cosmeceuticals, surgery or a combination of these techniques to achieve optimal results."

Wrinkle reduction and skin firming technologies such as ReFirme, FotoFacial RF Treatments, the Fraxel C02 Repair and Thermage are a few brands and procedures under scrutiny, even though they have been approved for consumers in the U.S. market.
Some people experience dramatic results with a series of these procedures, while others experience mild to moderate complications from the treatment. The AboutFACE conference will be reviewing each of these treatments, along with a lineup of new procedures on the horizon, to determine which ones are indeed a legitimate solution for long-term wrinkle reduction.
