Title: Combining Lasers and other energy Sources

Biography:

Mahaveer Mehta is Chairman and Medical director in his own medical Center in Dubai since may 1990. Prior to this he was Chairman of the Dept. of Dermatology at Qatar armed Forces medical unit and Chairman of Dermatology at International Hospital Bahrain. He has also worked as Faculty member in Al Fateh University , Tripoli ,  Libya and SMS medical college , Jaipur . Dr. Mehta is internationally well known in the field of Dermatology and Lasers. He is a pioneer in introducing Lasers to the Middle East. He is successfully practicing in Dubai since 1990.

Abstract:

Threory of selective photothermolysis:

Threoy of selective photothermolysis means Laser injury confined to target chromophore such as blood vessels, Pigmented cells , an unwanted hair without injury to adjacent structures. To make this happen Must meet following criteria
Wavelength that is highly absorbed by target chromophore
Fluence- Sufficient thermal energy to damage target
Pulse duration - equal or shorter than thermal relaxation time
Spot size- big spot size for deep and small spot size for superficial targets.

Background
CO2 Laser resurfacing still considered Gold standard since 1994 for fine and coarse wrinkles , scars of various origin , open pores , uneven pigmentation etc. but some drawbacks like pain , recovery time ,long lasting erythema, risk of Hypo or Hyper pigmentation and scaring has limited its use and we started looking for new safer and effective device.

And 1540 nm lux etc. with good result
To overcome these drawbacks Erbium Laser became very popular but too little result.
Concept of Non ablative Fractional photo- thermolysis was introduced in 2003 to overcome previously mentioned side effects and improve results with Near infrared wave lengths 1550 nm Fraxel and 1540 nm lux  etc. with good result and safe but significant pain and down time and needs few treatment sessions to achieve desired result.

Medical breakthrough
Use of ablatative CO 2 Laser in Fractional mode was introduced in 2006.After nearly twenty two years CO2 Laser is back in Fractional mode. depth of tissue necrosis can be controlled with less pain ,improved result and short recovery time and new collagen production , skin tightening and hardly any  side effects. Our fractional Laser device is with new scanning algorithm that uses 180 and 300  microns beam and keeps longest possible interval between two adjacent spots in order to minimize heat accumulation around treated area This significantly reduces pain.

Indications
Post Acne Scars and other origin scars
Open pores
Fine and Coarse wrinkles
Skin tightening
Stretch marks
Skin Dyschromias
Dark Circles
Photo aging

Title: TBS Lift - (Therma Bio Stimulation Lift)

Biography:

Graduated at the Liceo Classico Cristoforo Colombo in Genoa, Tiziana Lazzari graduated in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Genoa in 1988 with praise and specializes in Dermatology and Venereology at the same University. After specialization she attended master classes and courses in Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery in Italy and abroad.
From 1991 to 1998 she collaborates with the Dermatological Clinic of the University of Genoa, where she performed dermatosurgery activity. At the same time, she worked at the Istituto Medicina Domani in Genoa as Director of Clinical Activity (1991-1993) and Clinical Research (1993-1994). From 2010 to July 2016 has been director of the Lazzari Medical Center (C.M.L.), a dermatology and aesthetic medicine clinic with a surgical outpatient.

Abstract:

One of the main consequences of skin aging is the progressive reduction of the subcutaneous tissue with loss of firmness and tone of the tissues.

By the association of high-intensity focused ultrasound and biostimulation threads, a lifting-like effect can be achieved without the post-operative and the risks of surgical lifting.

The TBS Lift is indicated in all those cases in which there are signs of body aging related above all to skin laxity. High intensity focused ultrasound used in this study causes tissue warming and contraction to a depth of 4.5 mm.

They also stimulate the collagen genesis in the superficial and deep dermis at 1.5 mm and 3.0 mm.

In my experience it is useful, in order to amplify the results of high intensity focused ultrasound, the association with the polydoxanone biostimulation threads, a medical device already widely used in general surgery and cardiovascular surgery.

By inserting the threads into the skin tissue immediately after performing the high-intensity focused ultrasound , an improvement of the final effect is obtained and an increase in the duration of the obtained improvement.

This is because in turn polidioxanone stimulates the production of collagen and cell metabolism, while increasing the microcirculation and therefore the flow of blood in the treated areas.

The whole procedure is outpatient, takes just around an hour, does not require anesthesia or at most a local anesthesia for the insertion of the threads in particularly sensitive patients.  The results on the firming and compacting of the skin are appreciated gradually until obtaining the maximum result in about 3 months.

Results stable one year from treatment.

The TBS Lift is aimed at patients who have a slight breakdown of body tissues or who want a preventive intervention. The treatment is indicated to counteract the skin failure of arms, thighs and knees.

The association of the two methods in the same session also allows a clear economic advantage.

Abstract:

Objectives: 1) Know different factors contributing to the nasal ptosis. 2) Acknowledge different methods for correction of drooping nose with the advantages of augmentation. 3) Learn and apply efficient augmentation techniques for prevention of nasal ptosis during rhinoplasty.

Abstract: Maintaining long term results in rhinoplasty is the state of art in nasal plastic surgery. Numerous parameters in nasal wound healing and nasal support mechanisms have made rhinoplasty as the most difficult plastic surgery. In the recent years the role of augmentation for nasal support has been emphasized by many authors to prevent unwanted long term changes. Unpleasant appearance on animation, inducing aging face and impairing nasal valve function are considerable effects of ptotic noses. The profile view of the nose is the standard view for assessing tip rotation by measuring the nasolabial angle. The nasolabial angle is measured by a line from the subnasale to the superior vermilion and by a tangent of the columella from the subnasale. The ideal nasolabial angle is 90-100° in men and 100-110° in women. The most common indication for correction of the nasal tip ptosis is primary rhinoplasty. It is also a common feature of nasal aging in the aging face. Most rhinoplasty operations include techniques to attain and preserve acceptable tip rotation. Nasal ptosis is a common complant in secondary rhinoplasty due to damage of nasal tip support and subsequent nasal ptosis. Aesthetic nasolabial angle and tip location are affected by different factors. These factors include the cartilaginous framework of the lower third of the nose and the motor unity of this portion consists of levator labii superioris alaeque nasi and depressor septi nasi. The cartilaginous framework and these muscles stand for the static and dynamic factors respectively. This presentation will demonstrate advanced features of the most effective augmentation techniques to make stable aesthetic results and prevent nasal ptosis.

Abstract:

The use of peptides brings excellent results in all cases in which the efficiency of the skin has decreased relaxation, expression lines, lack of firmness and for this reason, they are also used in different pre-treatment formulations and support for aesthetic medicine treatments. Here follows some effects: increase the effectiveness of cosmetic formulations and meso-formulations (including fillers), anti-aging, anti-pigmentation, hair loss reduction, promotion of skin re generation, anti-cellulite action, degradation of skin fat Can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, other matrix proteins and glucosaminoglycans. The GHK (Liver Cell Growth Factor) is an example of a signal peptide and was one of the first peptides discovered in this bioactivity. In cosmetics we tend to use only very short chains with peptides composed of 3, 4 sometimes 6 amino acids. This allows a considerably broader field of action, a greater effectiveness, but above all they have a particular specificity of action. In cosmetics are used bound to lipophilic molecules, or alternatively inside liposomes (obviously in order to optimize skin absorption). In dermatology and in aesthetic medicine, currently, peptides are known in relation to all possible applications for the stimulation of collagen synthesis, as well as for the "botox-like" effects related to the treatment of wrinkles.

Title: Contemporary liposculpture techniques for male patient

Biography:

Huseyin Kandulu graduated as a medical doctor in 2003 and began his residency training in the field of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery in which he had a strong interest during his medical education. In addition to many reconstructive operations, he was strongly involved in nose, breast and body aesthetics during his residency training and carried out many surgeries. He delivered his thesis, entitled “The Effect of Chitosan on Microvascular Anastomosis Applications with Minimal Suturing Technique” in the field of microsurgery in 2010 thus completing his residency in Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and has specialized in this branch. He has more than twelve year’s surgical experience, performing all manner of body surgeries and reconstructive surgeries, in addition to various other aesthetic surgeries and procedures. In the last seven years however, he has focused almost exclusively on hi definition body sculpting, working closely with world renowned surgeons to develop and hone his skills. With his vast experience, and knowledge of the latest techniques he has become one of the foremost surgeons in the field of body sculpting. Because of his unerring commitment to patient safety and happiness, he believes that all surgeons wishing to specialise in body sculpting should seek the best training available and is therefore able to provide advanced liposculpture courses.

Abstract:

In the field of plastic surgery liposuction succeeded in becoming the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedure during the last decade in both man and women. First liposuction was described with curettage technique and then dry, wet and superwet techniques performed as suction assisted liposuction (SAL). The first aim with liposuction is removing excess fat and making body smaller. On the other hand in last year’s everything was changed and liposuction techniques are become different due to understanding fat anatomy under the skin. In order to get better results all innovative plastic surgeons need more superficial liposuction with less complications, so more dynamic liposuction or liposculpture techniques was essential. When we want to get shaping on the body we have to do more superficial liposuction. In this point plastic surgeons needs to get experience about dynamic zones, transition zones, positive and negative spaces. These zones provide us as a key what will be going and what will be left. Advanced body liposculpture provides more attractive and more successfull results. As we are aware the ideal male body form is V shape therefore this technique focused to succeed this body form. In order to achieve the ideal body form, deltoids, pectorals, latissimus, abdominal rectus muscle and external oblique muscles are the most important dynamic parts. Between this muscle groups have transition and negative zones. Also we have positive zones that fat stays above the muscles. Some surgeons keep the fat on positive zones and thinks they can achive more definition, this however is not the case. In order to achive permanent, attractive and naturel results most important part of surgery is patient selection. Even if you use the best technique you cannot achive best results if your patient is not eligible. Patient selection depends on the BMI, degree of skin excess, skin elasticity, patient's sportive history. Between December 2010- August 2018, More than 1300 Patient have undergone liposculpture. 40% cases were male and 60%Cases were female. In these cases advanced liposculpture procedure was performed to 70% male patient. All patients satisfied with aesthetic results of their liposculpture within the time of follow-up. Seroma rates were %7, unsatisfied definition rates were %1 due to patient selection, hematoma rates were %1, and skin necrosis did not occurred.

Abstract:

Plasma electro-surgical devices have long been used for coagulation, cutting tissue, drying, and burning. Notwithstanding all the advantages, these technologies cause tissue warming, and their effects are mostly thermal. Recently, significant progress made in atmospheric pressure plasma science and engineering (CAP), by which the temperature of the CAP is controlled and works at temperatures below 40 ° C. In the past decade, an innovative new field has emerged from the combination of plasma physics, life science, and clinical medicine, which is

known as plasma medicine (Heinlin J Isbary G Stolz W Morfill G Landthaler M et. al., 2011; Isbary et al., 2011). Thanks to these modern systems and plasma-medicine, the use of plasma in the human body is made possible. The purpose of this field is to employ the effects of cold plasma by managing the interaction between plasma elements with particular structural elements and features of living cells. Recent advances in comprehending the phenomena of the physical plasma, along with the development of new plasma sources, have opened a new way to cold atmospheric plasma healing, particularly in skin infections. The active components of the plasma such as molecules, atoms, ions, electrons and photons, reactive species, UV, and heat enable, control and catalyzes the reactions and complicated biochemical methods. Thermal and non-thermal (cold) plasma is now extensively used in medicine. It has very high potential in dermatology, for example, in wound healing, disinfection, sterilization, the treatment of various skin infections, or tissue recovery, and ultimately skin rejuvenation. This review is a general overview of the potential of plasma therapy in medicine, including recent research on skin diseases and interactions of plasma and living tissue (Choi et al., 2017) .

Thanks to both better understanding of plasma phenomena and the development of new plasma sources in the past few years, plasma medicine has become an innovative research field with a high potential for healing. While thermal plasma is used in various medical fields (for example, to burn and sterilize medical devices), current research focuses mainly on the use of non-thermal plasmas. Experiments show that Cold-Air Plasma (CAPs) allows efficient, non-contact and painless disinfection, even in microscopic openings, without damaging healthy tissues. CAP can affect the biochemical processes. In the skin, new horizons open for wound healing, tissue regeneration, treatment for skin infections, and possibly other illnesses. The first clinical trial demonstrates the efficacy and tolerability of plasma in the treatment of chronically infected wounds (Gentile, 2018; Heinlin et al., n.d.). An important task is the introduction of plasma into clinical medicine and simultaneously examining the mechanisms of plasma action at the cellular level.

Abstract:

Autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a role in the intrinsic skin ageing and it could be minimal compared to external factors induced, especially sun exposure. Most of the cutaneous vascular functions controlled by ANS such as the local blood flow and the loss of fluid through sweat. A recent hypothesis about a possible relationship between wrinkles and ANS activity and reversible wrinkling of the skin in response to water immersion is a marker of the limb sympathetic function. Factors that increase sympathetic activity such as stress, smoking and amphetamine may induce skin wrinkling. Heart rate variability (HRV) is the indirect measures of global ANS activity like high frequency [HF], low frequency [LF], LF/HF ratio. Facial xerosis was related to a decreased HF component that means impairment of parasympathetic autonomic activity. It might be associated with a decrease sweat production and stimulate vasodilatation which in turn leads to skin xerosis. Application of local and systemic administration of drugs and medical devices which electrically modulate autonomic nervous system activity and prognosis of skin ageing.

Abstract:

Skin is the outermost part of our body which is continuously exposed external assaults especially UV radiations. Prolonged exposure of unprotected skin to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) includes inflammation, premature photoageing, DNA damage, photocarcinogenesis, and immunosuppression. Five most significant signs of aging skin are; wrinkles, dark spots and uneven skin tone, sagging, dry skin and open visible pores. Sunscreen will continue to be an important component of Photoprotection. The active ingredients in topically applied sunscreens generally fall into two categories: organic or inorganic. Among inorganic actives, nanosized TiO 2 and ZnO are being used since 1980. These first generation nano sunscreens shown various disadvantages which will be discussed in this talk. The current sunscreens on the market are more aesthetically acceptable and superior to older generation sunscreens due to more advanced nanoparticle technology. Emphasis of discussion will be on encapsulation efficiency, stability and degradation in blood circulation, endocytosis by target cells, endosomal escape, delivery efficiency, and toxicity of nanoparticles. To overcome these obstacles, many types of nanocarriers are proposed; broadly into three categories; (i) lipid-based nanoparticles, (ii) polymer-based nanoparticles, and (iii) inorganic nanoparticles.

Abstract:

Objectives: (1) Know different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony. (2) Detect the specific facial imbalance of the nose and chin in any patient who is seeking correction of facial profile. (3) Apply different surgical techniques for chin advancement with the least complications and best results.

The chin like the nose is in a prominent position on the face and plays very important role in facial profile. The important relationship between the nose and chin may be ignored by many patients who are seeking rhinoplasty and may be underestimated by facial plastic surgeons who perform rhinoplasty This is the task of a facial plastic surgeon to mention this relationship and emphasize its importance for the patient. It is estimated that approximately one fifth of patients requesting rhinoplasty have an underdeveloped mandibular symphysis with normal occlusion (Angle, class I) can benefit from chin augmentation. The relationships between the nose and face were formulated by many authors considering the nasofrontal angle, nasolabial angle, nasofacial angle, and nasomental angle as important aesthetic parameters. Each facial component affects the perception of the balance of the other facial components. An underdeveloped chin with deficient projection will stimulate the image of an over projected nose. For this reason, we evaluated nose-chin proportions and nasal projection before and after genioplasty in rhinoplasty patients. In this presentation different nose and chin parameters contributing to the facial profile harmony will be described. Chin analysis will be discussed according to the most consistent methods. Surgical techniques for osteoplastic chin advancement will be demonstrated. All procedures were performed under general anesthesia with intraoral incision. After exposing the mentum, mental nerves were explored. After markings 5mm below the mental nerves, horizontal osteotomy was performed for chin advancement at the extent which was estimated on preoperative evaluation. The advanced segment was fixed in place with titanium plates or screws. Genioplasty could be performed in patients with chin problems during, before or after rhinoplasty to make a beautiful profile. Our experience with osteoplasty showed satisfactory results with no significant complication.
