Target Audience: The Aesthetic Extender Symposium is designed for an audience of physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners who work under the direct supervision of dermatologists, facial plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, and plastic surgeons, and commonly assist with cosmetic surgery and medicine.

Statement of Need: In recent years aesthetic products and treatment options in injectables, devices and minimally invasive techniques have continued to dramatically increase in popularity. With the influx of new therapies, technologies and procedures in dermatology and aesthetic medicine it is imperative for aesthetic physician extenders to remain up to date on the safety and efficacy of these products for the best patient outcomes. The Aesthetic Extender Symposium will provide innovative education, skills and techniques that attendees can immediately adapt into their current practice environment to provide safe, effective, and high-level patient care. This will be done utilizing several proven learning techniques, such as hands-on learning, cadaver dissection sessions, expert panel discussions, and didactic lectures.
