Dermatology has always been evolving. While the pandemic may have hastened some aspects of our evolution and emphasized others, it’s important that we not forget that our field has always innovated in the ways that we treat patients, communicate, and, of course, learn!

In this vein, we always approach Cosmetic Surgery Forum as a completely different meeting each year. By this, I mean that we attempt to have completely different discussions and introduce new ideas and faculty who can enliven any discourse. This year, we have added four new faculty and three new injection faculty who will show their “art” of injection. It is always exciting to see how others practice in a live and up-close manner!

As dermatologists, we all are challenged to keep up to date on the latest treatments and to understand patient demand. According to recently released data from Allergan’s global trends report, “The Future of Aesthetics,” the North American medical aesthetics market is expected to grow by more than 10 percent annually through 2026. The report predicts 23 million dermal fillers and 14.6 million body procedures worldwide by 2025. Physicians around the world are seeing an increased volume of younger patients, more patients from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds, and more male patients than ever before.

To help dermatologists offer the highest levels of care for the growing market, we have added topics on threads, cellulite, hair care/hair loss, cosmetic treatments for skin of color, ethics, nutracosmeceuticals, microbiome challenges, new topical medications and health care consumerism, among others. As always, we will have different cases for our laser, fillers, neurotoxins and other sections. It is going to be a completely new version for 2022.

Access to education has increased in recent years, and virtual learning has its benefits. But there is surely a place for dialogue in the learning process. You can always count on our meeting to challenge you and promote an unbiased reflection of the topic at hand. We embrace “back and forth” dialogue in order to better understand the pros and cons of each treatment or procedure.

This year we will be sponsoring residents who will present on topics that are new and informative. The input of residents is yet one other feature that makes CSF different.

Education in an informative and discursive manner is our goal and for the 12+ years we have produced CSF, thousands of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, oculoplastics, and facial plastic physicians and residents have not only attended, but participated in the conference. I say “participated” because it is important to me to have an interactive faculty and audience in order to achieve the best learning atmosphere. Additionally, CME credit of 22 hours will be available to attendees.

Of course, there is the exciting venue: Nashville. Not only is “Music City” the hottest and most evolving place for music and fun, but it is a great place to relax after a day of learning. We hope you join us at the JW Marriott this year!

Note: This year, Allergan, Galderma, RVL Pharmaceuticals, and Revision Skincare will be sponsoring events at CSF that will be educational and buttress the talks presented in CME form. The live laser demonstration and live peel/devices session on Thursday afternoon will have more than 10 entities present to gain education on how they work in practice. Friday afternoon will conclude with the live neurotoxin, filler and cellulite treatment sessions. For information:
