In Review: VCS Virtual Format Hailed a Success image

After a decade and a half of bringing topline aesthetic education to Las Vegas, VCS went virtual this fall.

“While it wasn't live—it was virtual—I knew it was absolutely fantastic,” says meeting co-chair and Modern Aesthetics® magazine co-chief medical editor Steven Dayan, MD. “We had over 72 hours of content. Rich material. We covered everything from head to toe, from skin to bone. It was all there.”

In addition to cadaver labs and practice management sessions, the program included master classes.

Dermatologist Suneel Chilukuri, MD of Refresh Dermatology in Houston led a master class on hand rejuvenation. “When you talk about patients coming in for the hands or the backs of the hands, what are some of the options that we have for hand rejuvenation? One of course is fillers. When we talk about fillers here, is it safe?” asks Dr. Chilukuri, who uses hyaluronic acid fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite for hand rejuvenation. 

“We have seen excellent safety there,” he says. “I think there's quite a difference in terms of the way that they inject. And there's also a difference in terms of longevity. 

Several attendees commented on the clinical benefit of the program. "I enjoyed learning about all of the up-and-coming treatments that aren't quite out in the market yet,” observed one attendee. “It helps me prepare for some new things that our practice might want to provide in the future."

"The speakers were all extremely informative and engaged in the topics,” noted another attendee. “I appreciated that lectures were given and that there was a discussion panel amongst the presenters. This was different from most conferences and added a level of communication and education that I had not experienced in the past." 

“If you did not see it, go to VegasCosmeticSurgery.info,” Dr. Dayan urges. “There, you can still watch it till the end of the year. Over 35 CME credits are available to you.”
