The Live Demonstration session on Aug. 8 will focus on neurotoxins and soft tissue augmentation.

Summer Academy Meeting 2014 will feature one live demonstration session. “Neurotoxins and Soft Tissue Augmentation” will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 8 in Grand Ballroom A. The course will be directed by New York dermatologist and professor Ellen S. Marmur, MD.

The course is designed for the advanced practitioner to review the underlying pathology of rhytids and distinguish between static photo-damage, muscle hypertrophy, and subcutaneous tissue loss. The indications and technique for the safe administration of botulinum toxin for facial cosmesis will be addressed. The rationale and selection criteria for the use of all three of the commercially available toxins also will be discussed. The session will include live patient demonstrations of toxins based on the didactic presentations. Audience participation and interaction will be encouraged and practical guidelines regarding toxins will be addressed by the panel.

“Live demonstration sessions with different injecting physicians are an incredible way to appreciate new or subtle techniques that can make a profound difference in patient outcomes. Also, working with live patients with different anatomy is a wonderful opportunity to discuss anatomic variations, ways to avoid complications, management of complications, and to appreciate each other’s visions of aesthetics,” Dr. Marmur said.

Other invited speakers include Amy J. Derick, MD; Thomas E. Rohrer, MD; Ava T. Shamban, MD; Amy Forman Taub, MD; and Susan H. Weinkle, MD.
