Las Vegas – At the fall edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned which devices core aesthetic practitioners can’t live without.
Sarmela Sunder, M.D., said that in an informal poll of 20 colleagues, “The general consensus was there are 5 devices or device types that you want to have in your practice or have someone to refer to – IPL/BBL for vascular lesions, pigmented lesions and collagen stimulation; an ablative fractionated laser, with more people favoring CO2 over erbium; a cryolipolysis device; microneedling, which has a very high return on investment; and then radiofrequency, whether it’s microneedling or monopolar.”
For resurfacing, “An ablative laser is important to have in a practice. The trend has been away from non-fractionated ablative lasers just in terms of avoiding complications.”
For pigmentation, “There was an overwhelming preference towards IPL or BBL. Pulsed-dye and Q-switched lasers are also popular. I personally still like chemical peels for patients who don’t need a significant difference.” Dr. Sunder is an Encino-based plastic surgeon.
