Dermatologists Explore Electrology at the AAD Annual Meeting
Dr. Lesly Davidson to speak on common misconceptions about electrolysis and laser hair removal.
January 07, 2011
NEW ORLEANS, LA . The American Electrology Association (AEA) today announces that Lesly Davidson, MD, FAAD, will present at the 69th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatologists in New Orleans, LA on Feb 4, 2011. Her presentation, "Electrolysis: When Laser Isn't the Answer," is intended to educate attendees in the differences between electrolysis and laser hair removal methods.
Patients suffering from excess or unsightly hair growth often seek treatment from a dermatologist. Many dermatologists, however, are unaware that laser hair removal is not the best option for removal of certain types of unwanted hair, or they have been exposed to misleading information about the permanence of laser hair removal.
Dr. Davidson's seminar is designed to provide her professional colleagues with accurate information about available hair removal options. "People have been misled into believing that laser hair removal is permanent or that it is always the best solution. That really isn't true," says Davidson. ".There are many situations where electrolysis is a better option. Dermatologists need to understand this, so they can refer their patients for the proper care.".
This seminar is currently scheduled at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Room 285, on Friday, Feb 4, 2011 from 2:30PM to 4:00PM. Attendees are eligible for 2.00 CME credits.
