A E Skin has been named Best Aesthetic Practice for the third time. This disctinct honor was given at THE Aesthetic Academy conference in Newport Beach on October 31, 2015. The winner was determined by the support of the patients who voted for the practices. At A E Skin we work hard to provide the best outcomes and experience for our patients and their support means so much to us. We cannot thank our patients enough. Dr. Alex was able to accept this award on Halloween night accompanied by his son Adam dressed in his doctor costume. Everyone at the awards ceremony said that Adam stole the show. He was so excited that he is planning to enroll in the injectable training course next year so he can do Botox treatments on his own patients. THE Aesthetic Academy is a smaller and regional version of the annual Aesthetic Show. Dr. Alex had the opportunity to participate in the injectable course, a full day training session designed for doctors and nurses to improve their skills. The morning session included lectures on various topics such as preventing Botox complications, using fillers for facial rejuvenation, and new injectables such as Kybella to treat fullness in the neck. Expert speakers from around the country included Dr. Andrew Ordon of the hit television show The Doctors, Dr. Alexander Rivkin of Westside Aesthetics inventor of the non-surgical nose job, and Dr. Phil Werschler. The afternoon session allowed Dr. Alex to observe live injections by these experts. Dr. Alex learned new and different techniques to improve outcomes, decrease pain, and minimize side effects. One of the new and exciting injectable treatments Dr. Alex learned about is Kybella, an injection done in the neck to dissolve fat and reduce the fullness in the neck. Made by Allergan, the company that makes Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, and Latisse, Kybella training will be available in 2016 and we plan to offer it shortly thereafter. Other new and exciting treatments include skin tightening, non-invasive body contouring, tattoo removal, cellulite treatment, and feminine rejuvenation. Dr. Alex makes significant efforts to attend conferences regularly to learn about the newest techniques and devices in order to provide his patients with the best outcomes.
