Because Dr. Elizabeth Roche believes that innovation and beauty go hand in hand, the Elizabeth Roche MedSpa philosophy has always included a commitment to ongoing education. As aesthetic tools and technology evolve, so does Elizabeth Roche MedSpa.
With that in mind, Dr. Roche, representing Elizabeth Roche MedSpa, recently attended the 2011 Aesthetic Show™ in Las Vegas, a multidisciplinary conference that brings the latest aesthetic procedures, products, and technologies together in an intensive and interactive educational format. There, she met keynote speaker and special guest, plastic surgeon and reconstructive surgery expert Dr. Andrew Ordon of the CBS television series The Doctors.
But as thrilled as Dr. Roche was to meet Dr. Ordon, she was equally excited to learn about the latest procedures, products, and technologies emerging in the field of aesthetic medicine. Some of the most interesting innovations Dr. Roche encountered at the Aesthetic Show™ were:
- The use of cannulas (blunt needles) to reduce bruising during dermal filler injections. The needle-less filler injection is one of the most monumental changes that has emerged in the field of dermal fillers in the past few years because cannulas have been shown to deliver better results, more safely. Overall, dermal filler injections performed with cannulas require less downtime, making this a major advancement.
- The unique benefits conveyed by a Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (brand name Selphyl). Selphyl is a safe and quick way to smooth out wrinkles and give skin a more youthful, appearance. What is unique about this system is that the filler used is the patient’s own platelets, which may stimulate new collagen production for true, natural skin rejuvenation.
Dr. Roche is pleased to be able to bring her patients the most ground-breaking advancements in the field of aesthetic medicine, and will continue to research new procedures, products, and technologies to ensure that Elizabeth Roche MedSpa is always on the leading edge.
