“I felt that this meeting was terrific in many ways.  for many years, I have felt that the future of aesthetic medicine and surgery will depend upon communication and educational exchange between the “best of the best” of facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, oculoplatic surgeons, and dermatologists.  This meeting consistently addresses that effort.”

Michael A. Persky, MD presenting at Cosmetic Surgery 2011Cellulaze Treatment


We are looking forward to hearing about the latest 1 to 2 year results with the cellulite laser, Cellulaze, from some of the earliest users of the technology.  Cellulaze is a minimally invasive laser treatment that reportedly treats cellulite with lasting results.  When presented at last years meeting, it was reported that over 90% of Cellulaze patients were still happy with their results one year after their treatment.  We hope that the results are still positive, and that Cellulaze meets our practice criteria of being both safe and effective.  If so, we may be incorporating the treatment into the practice.

Please don’t get us wrong, it won’t be all fun and games.  Dr. Persky has been asked to perform as a Sonny Bono impersonator during the faculty dinner!As always, what happens in Vegas won’t stay in Vegas, as Dr. Persky looks forward to sharing the latest in facial aesthetic surgery with you after Vegas Cosmetic Surgery 2012.  Be well!
