Over 400 participants attended the 6th annual Laser and Health Academy (LA&HA®) Symposium, which took place on May 20th at the resort of Lake Bled in Slovenia's Alpine region.
During the symposium 46 experts from around the world gathered to present, share and discuss experiences in the field of medical laser treatments. The lecture topics were grouped into parallel sessions according to LA&HA's three main research categories:
- Lasers in Aesthetics, Dermatology & Surgery
- Lasers in Dentistry
- Lasers in Gynecology
Many of the topics presented at this year’s Symposium discussed the unique combination of Erbium-YAG laser and Neodym-YAG laser treatment modalities, which enables highly effective yet minimally invasive aesthetic treatments such as skin tightening and body sculpting, as well as applications in periodontology and dental surgery. In the gynecological program, the ‘magical’ minimally invasive, non-ablative Erbium-YAG laser treatment modality known as SMOOTH® mode was discussed in applications from stress urinary incontinence and atrophy treatment to laser vaginal rejuvenation. The symposium also included demonstrations of some of the industry's latest medical laser equipment.
During and after the Symposium there were plenty of opportunities for networking and socializing with lecturers and fellow participants. The Symposium was jointly organized by the Horizon2020 Photonics Public Private Partnership and the Laser and Health Academy.
