Dr. Fitzgerald, well-known Los Angeles Dermatologist and Sculptra Master Trainer, presented at the 2010 annual meeting of the International Master Course on Aging Skin (IMCAS) held in Paris. IMCAS is a huge globally-recognized and globally-attended professional gathering of dermatologists and plastic surgeons. This year's IMCAS was attended by 3200 delegates from 40 countries with 300 speakers.
Dr. Fitzgerald was an invited Expert Lecturer on the Advanced Uses of PLLA (Sculptra) and combined therapies. In a videoed presentation she provided live demonstrations along with her close colleague from Geneva, Switzerland, Dr. Danny Vleggaar and Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jonathan Sykes from Sacramento, Ca. Their joint presentation “Optimizing Outcomes in Aesthetic Rejuvenation” focused on volume restoration.
Discussions included experiences using fat verses synthetics for volume restoration. Dr. Fitzgerald was able to provide in-depth early-on development of Sculptra use gathered from the ‘lessons learned from treating HIV lipoatrophy patients’. Also integrated into the presentation was an overview of the anatomy of aging and how volume restoration using PLLA and Hyaluronic Acids impact facial balance and contouring changes caused by the natural aging process of fat and bone loss.
Dr. Fitzgerald is a Master International Sculptra Training physician for Dermik Laboratories, the cosmetic arm of Sanofi Aventis, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical providers. She frequently provides expert level training to physicians here in the United States and across Europe.
