Poinciana 1-3
Speakers: Dr. Jason Pozner, Dr. Chris Robb, Dr. Kian Karimi, and Dr. Joel Cohen
We will discuss the importance of evaluating the patient goals and building a comprehensive package of care with multiple technologies. Patients may come in asking about a single procedure (e.g. Botox) or with a specific concern (periorbital wrinkles), but it’s important to assess the whole patient and provide a complete treatment plan. Having a platform such as the Joule, enables practitioners to offer multiple treatment options from a single device. And when you combine these options will fillers, toxins and in some cases surgery, the results that can be achieved are far superior.
