  • What defines ‘good skin’
  • Collagen and why this is so important for the skin’s quality and texture
  • How injectable patients often neglect their skin and the pitfalls to this
  • The basic of lasers and laser treatments
  • Ablative vs non-ablative lasers
  • Fraxel: the original non-ablative fractional laser
  • How energy based devices and injectables can be used synergistically
