Course provides a great opportunity to have a direct give and take dialogue with experts in the field of laser medicine and surgery.

The course is suitable for novices just getting involved in laser work to a more advanced level of skill.

The latest techniques and treatments in aesthetic laser medicine will be presented the Laser Aesthetics Course November 10 – 11, 2018 at the Beckman Laser Institute in Irvine, California.

This popular weekend course, hosted by the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc. (ASLMS), is designed for physicians, clinicians, scientists, and industry professionals who use or are investigating the use of lasers and other energy-based technologies. The course provides a broad overview of devices used in aesthetic applications to achieve optimum clinical outcomes. Topics include: basic science of lasers and related technologies, tissue interactions, safety procedures, skin tightening, hair removal, fat treatment, acne, psoriasis, vascular lesions, tattoos, scars, photodamage, and injectable neurotoxins.

The distinguished course faculty, led by J. Stuart Nelson, MD, PhD, course director, includes Emil A. Tanghetti, MD; E. Victor Ross, MD; and Gerald N. Goldberg, MD. The course is located at the prestigious Beckman Laser Institute and has limited registration.

“The Laser Aesthetics Course, held at the Beckman on the UC-Irvine campus, is one of my favorite meetings.” said Dr. Goldberg. “It’s a stimulating environment for both faculty and participants, in a small, intimate setting where we can learn from each other and talk about issues coming up in our practices.”

For 2018, the course will feature new ways to use ablative lasers to achieve optimal results for skin rejuvenation, acne scarring and complex vascular malformations, plus several newer devices and techniques that combine ablative and non-ablative technologies. The newest picosecond devices will be compared for optimal treatment of pigmented lesions. The use of photodynamic therapy (PDT) to treat skin conditions will also be explored. The course finishes up with video demonstration and discussion of end points.

“The course is suitable for novices just getting involved in laser work to a more advanced level of skill. A wide range of people will benefit from the material we present, including dermatologists, other specialists, general practitioners, nurses, physician’s assistants, and medical aesthetic personnel,” said Dr. Goldberg.

Course registration is $950 for ASLMS members or applicants, $1,250 for non-members, and $200 for students, residents and fellows-in-training (five student/resident/fellow seats are available). To register, or for more information, visit, call (877) 258-6028 or email information(at)
