Winter Clinical Dermatology Conference
As much as Dr. Matarasso loves visiting with his patients in beautiful San Francisco, he also likes to get away. Fortunately for him, one of his most recent trips combined business and pleasure, as he had the opportunity to be a speaker at the Winter Clinical Dermatology Conference 2016 in Koloa, Hawaii.
A Prestigious Event Attended by Dermatologists from Around the Country
The Winter Clinical Dermatology Conference is one of the most important annual events for dermatologists in the country. Attended by more than 400 dermatologists this year, the conference featured discussions and presentations by 42 industry experts. During the conference, the visiting dermatologists were able to enjoy training, live patient workshops, panels, Q & A sessions, and lectures. This year’s event was held from January 15-20 at the Grand Hyatt Kauai.
Dr. Matarasso’s Presentation
A highlight of the event was Dr. Matarasso’s presentation on injectable neurotoxin treatments. He discussed Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, highlighting differences in cost and usage for these powerful treatments. These neurotoxins have valuable uses for treating fine lines and wrinkles (including crow’s feet, bunny lines, and frown lines), chin dimpling, and other cosmetic concerns. They can also treat medical conditions, including hyperhidrosis, migraine headaches, and masseter hypertrophy.
After advising physicians of the latest research regarding neurotoxins, he reminded them to treat the aging face not just with Botox, but to also utilize polytherapy. Dr. Matarasso recommends combining neurotoxin treatments with injectable fillers for the best results. As an experienced and well-practiced provider of injectable treatments, he is well aware of the synergistic effects that cosmetic treatments can have when properly used together.
Although we’re sure Dr. Matarasso enjoyed his time away teaching, learning, and hopefully spending time on the beach, we’re certainly glad he’s back. Call today and book your appointment with him.
