Mechanical, Light Based, and Laser Light Therapies for the Treatment of Moderate and Severe Acnes including Acne Scarring

acne therapies training session

Acne Therapies Training Session

It is estimated that the market and revenues from Acne Treatments in the United States is 8 times greater than the entire cosmetic laser treatments combined. Don't miss out on this opportunity to effectively treat and control acne for your patients by simply prescribing or referring these patients out to Dermatologists. With 34% of men and 27% of women in the United States between the ages of 15 and 44 years suffering from acne, Dermatologists simply cannot fulfill the demand, sometimes waiting 2 to 3 months before seeing a patient. In this 1-Day course you will learn conventional treatment protocols as well as the more advanced, but simple methods to treat acne and acne scarring.  

You will learn about prescription drugs, compounded medications, cosmeceuticals, dermal delivery systems, thermal and non-thermal light sources, microdermabrasion, lasers and chemical peels designed specifically for treating acne and other skin conditions.
