Abstract:

Treatment plans in aesthetic medicine increasingly incorporate the use of energy based devices. 

Deficient and inconsistent longitudinal training in the use of such devices exposes patients to the risk of adverse effects which can be challenging to manage.

Abstract:

There is often confusion about the management of DONs, beginning with a failure to instigate a diagnostic process. Reactive prescribing, poly-pharmacy style, can render subsequent diagnostic steps ineffective, leading to a protracted recovery and increased risks to patients. What simple diagnostic steps can make a real  change to our patients’ outcomes?
