The presentations at the meeting, according to Dr. Carruthers, will include topics on the latest in innovations in reversing volume loss, all methods of facial rejuvenation from wrinkle reduction enhancing facial harmony to smoothing and tightening, as well as procedures for hands and décolletage.

Carruthers, Dr. Andre Vieira Braz, Dr. Seth L. Matarasso, Dr. Susan S. Weinkle, Dr. Rhoda S. Narins, Dr. Sue Ellen Cox, Dr. Suzanne L. Kilmer, Dr. Sabrina G.

ASDS offers opportunity support, insights from peers

The ASDS was founded in 1970 and became a member of the American Medical Association House of Delegates in 1987. It has grown steadily over the years and now has nearly 6,000 members. The educational and networking initiatives that ASDS undertake provide tremendous benefits for everyone in the specialty, regardless of experience level, Dr. Carruthers said.

He noted that there are significant benefits to joining the ASDS and he encourages others to join.

“There is strength in numbers. We all have times in our careers when we can benefit from the support and insights of our peers, and joining ASDS is the best way to connect with many of the best and brightest dermatologic innovators worldwide,” said Dr. Carruthers.

“The camaraderie among ASDS members makes engaging in our specialty all the more fulfilling.”
