Course Description
This comprehensive course, designed for plastic surgeons and those who assist in their practice, is divided in two sections.

The first part of the day focuses on the use of energy-based devices and injectable treatments for improving male and female intimate wellness. The faculty will provide an update on FDA Warning letters, a review of devices by category, a summary of the published literature on the subject, the role of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and tips on how to incorporate these technologies into your practice.

During the second half of the course, the faculty will review new entries into the market and explore how combination therapy with neuromodulators, soft tissue fillers and suspension sutures, can help achieve a rejuvenated look that comes close to the results that were once only achievable with surgical procedures.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the mechanism of action of Radiofrequency (RF), lasers and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for minimally-invasive vaginal devices and list the clinical applications for their use for vaginal rejuvenation. Describe the risks and benefits of each.
  • Review and interpret the literature to assess the need for incorporating the use of minimally invasive vaginal laser devices, RF therapy and/or PRP treatments into their practices.
  • Describe the mechanism of action of high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology and its application in treating male and female urinary incontinence.
  • Describe the mechanism of action of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT) for treating erectile dysfunction (ED).
  • Outline key studies on Li-ESWT for ED and describe any safety considerations associated with Li-ESWT use.
  • Identify characteristics and benefits of resorbable suspension sutures.
  • Identify injection techniques that have demonstrated safe and satisfactory patient outcomes for facial enhancement and/or rejuvenation.
  • Implement strategies to minimize and manage adverse events of facial injectables including bruising, infection/biofilms, and lumps and bumps.
