With the demand for non-invasive laser-based aesthetic treatments quickly growing here in Australia, Cynosure recently welcomed Dr. Emil A. Tanghetti, a California-based dermatologist and internationally renowned medical speaker to Melbourne to speak at the Australian Society of Cosmetic Dermatologist Symposium (ASCD).
Dr. Tanghetti led a dynamic education session examining a variety of laser-based non-invasive aesthetic procedures, including body contouring, fat reduction, skin revitalisation, pigmentation reduction and vascular treatments and discussed the impressive results of Cynosure’s various light-based technologies.
“Minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments are becoming more popular than traditional surgical procedures and are also more accessible for most patients,” said Dr. Tanghetti in an interview with Australian Woman’s Weekly.
With laser-based fat reduction technologies, such as SculpSure offering a highly effective, quick and painless means of body contouring, with up to a 24% fat reduction in treated areas, consumers are eager to experience the benefits of these revolutionary treatments.
“The shift in the body contouring space is indicative of a larger trend in the cosmetic market. Minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments are becoming more popular than traditional surgical procedures and are also more accessible for most patients,” said Dr. Tanghetti.
Bringing a wealth of expert knowledge to this special event, Dr Tanghetti discussed his experiences with laser-based aesthetic technologies in the USA, giving Australian medical specialists the chance to share their insights and talk through the different aspects of this exciting area.
In an interview with Australian Woman’s Weekly Dr. Tanghetti stated “10 years ago, this field did not exist. What we are now seeing is a field that is in its infancy and will only continue to grow and improve over time.”
Dr. Tanghetti has been active in clinical studies for over a decade and witnessed the growth of the market for non-invasive laser-based treatments. Offering dramatic results in a quick, painless non-invasive manner, laser based treatments continue to grow in popularity and are creating a major shift in the market.
“There is a significant shift away from liposuction. Among dermatologists in the US, the shift can be seen with the following statistic: for every one liposuction performed, there are 14 non-invasive body sculpting treatments performed. This certainly speaks for itself,” said Dr. Tanghetti.
