Providers and patients alike continue to reap the benefits of utilizing radiofrequency (RF)-based energy for non-surgical, no-downtime body shaping and skin rejuvenation procedures. As a versatile example of this trend, the Thermi250® device from Thermi, an Almirall Company (Dallas, Texas) employs temperature-controlled RF that delivers a tailored treatment for non-invasive, non-ablative body rejuvenation for people of all skin types.
Two significant mega trends have developed in aesthetic medicine: male aesthetics and women’s intimate health services. Practitioners should not ingnore these.
With educational offerings ranging from hands-on injectable courses to excellence in practice management, The Aesthetic Show will offer physicians and their teams many opportunities to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits through a progressive scientific program, including hands-on injectables courses.
For many attendees at The Aesthetic Show, the biggest highlight is The Aesthetic Awards gala. This year, The Aesthetic Guide, The Aesthetic Channel and The Aesthetic Show are partnering to honor the gifted individuals and organizations who are driving innovation and developing best practices in our field.

The use of lasers, radiofrequency (RF), and light-based technologies in cosmetic procedures has swelled in recent years, as device manufacturers explore the outer limits of safe energy-based approaches and physicians increasingly purchase new, clinically proven devices.
Though surgical options remain a gold standard in many aesthetic cases, the energy-based body shaping industry has experienced substantial growth in recent years. The latest generation of less invasive technologies and products has shown considerable improvement over past iterations, with improved patient safety, efficacious outcomes, reduced treatment and recovery time, as well as less pain.
For over 20 years Lutronic (Boston, Mass.) has been a successful leader in laser and energy-based devices. While the company continues to expand worldwide, the clear objective is to leap ahead of competing companies, many of whom are located in North America.
The next revolution in medical aesthetics involves advanced point-of-care devices and accessories for internal procedures that require stem cells and other biocellular components to perform a variety of external aesthetic functions. At the forefront of these systems, Healeon Medical (Newbury Park, Calif.) offers a next-generation solution that delivers on this innovative concept.
Utilizing its novel StarWalker™ MaQX Q-switched laser system to address tattoo removal, Fotona (Dallas, Texas) has released the new FracTAT™ procedure.
A revolution is taking hold in medical aesthetics. Increasingly, the use of stem cell-based therapies is starting to replace the need for more invasive surgery, as well as drug or chemical-based treatments.
