TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - July 24, 2014) - THE Aesthetic Show™ is an annual meeting for aesthetic medical and dental professionals. Los Angeles plastic surgeon Christine Petti, M.D., F.A.C.S. explains that the multi-disciplinary conference allows top physicians in the field to share contemporary techniques, services and products that are at the forefront of cosmetic medicine. "This is where each attendee will have the opportunity to absorb knowledge and meet professionals at all levels of aesthetic medicine in order to share ideas so that each attendee leaves the meeting feeling more confident about what they can offer their patients." THE Aesthetic Show™ 2014 was held at The Wynn in Las Vegas, July 10-13.
This year, Dr. Petti was invited to present at THE Aesthetic Show™ on the subject of body contouring, due to her expertise in laser-assisted liposuction (Smartlipo™) and laser treatment of cellulite (Cellulaze™). She has reported on the use of these techniques in surgical literature and has a unique method of treatment that she was able to share with those in attendance at THE Aesthetic Show™ scientific session.
At THE Aesthetic Show™ 2014, Dr. Petti conducted an educational workshop on PrecisionTx™ -- a laser-assisted, minimally-invasive neck and lower face contouring treatment. Dr. Petti's presentation included a review of the laser technology, patient selection, and treatment outline for an aesthetically-appealing, efficient, and safe outcome. She says PrecisionTx™ is typically completed in an hour under local anesthesia. According to Dr. Petti, it is often a good option for jawline and neck rejuvenation for patients who do not desire a neck lift or face lift, or are not yet candidates for these procedures. In a recent blog post titled, "Laser Assisted Facial Rejuvenation and Neck Lift," she says PrecisionTx™ can be beneficial for young patients with a thick neck and middle-aged patients with early skin laxity and fat below the chin (submental fat). She adds, "It can also be a great option for patients who have had a previous face and neck lift, but are not ready to undergo another surgery to maintain their youthful appearance."
During the four-day conference, Dr. Petti also presented on an abstract she authored entitled, "Treating Cellulite and Fat Simultaneously." During the lecture, she presented a series of 16 patients who underwent both laser-assisted body contouring of the thighs and buttocks (Smartlipo™) and simultaneous laser treatment of cellulite (Cellulaze™) of the same areas.
Regarding her experience as a presenter at THE Aesthetic Show™, Dr. Petti says, "I was excited to share my laser expertise with other aesthetic surgeons to facilitate their understanding and successful use of the unique and rewarding minimally-invasive technique of PrecisionTx™." She explains that many surgeons are not comfortable with laser technology, so she enjoyed having an opportunity to educate them so they can safely and effectively add the technology as an option for their patients.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
