It will focus on vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, laser endpoints, how to avoid complications, laser assisted drug delivery and ablative and fractional lasers. Each of these topics will be systematically approached by an expert through 1) a short introduction, 2) an overview of available devices, 3) a review of indications, 4) an interactive panel discussion with tips, tricks and pitfalls. Questions from the audience are welcome throughout the whole workshop.

Level of proficiency:

The workshop is directed to beginners in the field, residents in dermatology and slightly experienced laser practitioners. Basic knowledge about laser physics and general aspects of laser skin interaction is preferred, but not required.
