The absorbable thread treatment, started in Korea, is now well recognized as a model treatment for anti-aging. Not only in improving anti-aging, but currently experts consider the absorbable thread treatment as a positive solution to solve various skin troubles and diseases as well, and have been trying new attempts, gaining constructive progress.
This symposium will offer an opportunity to learn about absorbable thread treatment in general and in depth - what clinicians must know for safer and more effective absorbable thread treatment, from anatomical basic knowledge to numerous clinical experiences of Korea’s prominent absorbable thread experts and to preventive measures and solutions for side effects.
In this session, we will learn the fundamental anatomic knowledge clinicians must know for safer and more effective absorbable thread treatment. Furthermore, we will look into the past, present and future of the absorbable thread treatment and discuss on the direction this treatment should take as it moves forward.
In this session, we will share the clinical experiences of prominent absorbable thread treatment experts. As we study their actual practices, we will not only look into their cumulated experiences, but learn special techniques and procedures and effectiveness of regional(부위별) treatments. Especially, we will focus on methods that will maximize the clinical results by combining with other procedures.
Clinicians can encounter unexpected side effects in any medical procedures. Moreover, in aesthetic treatments, patients’ aesthetic satisfactions must be reached. In Session 3, we will study various side effects, complications and unsatisfactory cases any clinician can experience and also find cases that solved such problems. Measures that can prevent side effects beforehand, solutions to solve side effects that already occurred and ways to enhance patient satisfaction will also be discussed in depth.
Session 1 & 2: The new Korean paradigm of surgical anti-aging fields
The existing anti-aging aesthetic procedures such as the filling of the hollow areas and the pulling of the sagging skin, methods that started 120years ago, or the paralyzing of facial muscles and thus reducing wrinkles by Botox, which was developed 50years ago, cannot safely and effectively solve aging problems. The limits of the past 100years must be overcome. Over these two sessions, the concepts and principles of the new paradigm of surgical anti-aging fields that is sweeping Korea fast and its detailed approaches will be open to the audience.
Session 3 & 4: LASERS & EBD for Tightening
For the last 20years, for the purpose of skin tightening and rejuvenation, various lasers and EBD have been used in the anti-aging clinics. This session will review the developments of new energy devices such as RF and HIFU and examine the principles that must be observed during procedures using those devices.
We will investigate the mechanism energy devices work within tissues so as to bring better clinical results.
We must understand that what is important is not to produce post-procedure temporary visual effects but to increase the ECM substances that maintain the reducing tightening of tissues in the long term and to completely understand the prerequisite conditions for surgical procedures to restore the functions of the structures supporting tissues.
We must have a thorough understanding that damaging the ECM environment within tissues for immediate effects will inevitably bring in results that are much worse over time.
