For 40 years, the Annual Conference of the ASLMS (American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery), is where the world’s leading experts in lasers and energy-based devices have come to share their most recent advances in both bench science and patient care.

This tradition will be maintained in 2021. The big difference this year will be the format. As a virtual program, ASLMS 2021 will feature the best of the Annual Conference, with new formats and features. Over 40 hours of CME content is blended with non-CME favorites, as well as new industry webinars, demonstrations and videos. And, a single registration fee provides access to all of the live sessions May 15 - 16, 2021, plus on-demand sessions available through July 15, 2021.
Practitioners can learn state-of-the-art techniques, treatments and tips to employ in their practice via the variety of courses, special sessions and workshops taught by key leaders in the field. Topics include vascular indica- tions, pigmented lesions, tattoo removal, ablative/non-ablative procedures, skin cancer, body contouring, laser-assisted drug delivery, scars and combination therapies. Top tips for laser safety, managing pain, side effects and complications will also be presented.
As the lifeblood of the ASLMS annual meeting, and the entire field of laser and energy-based medicine, there will be abstract sessions with authors presenting their original cutting-edge research in the field for the first time. Hundreds of clinical and scientific studies will be presented this year to highlight the most recent advances and technologies on the market.
“The ASLMS is a unique society where clinicians, researchers and engineers first share and discuss their ideas. Over the years, most major advances in the field of laser and energy-based device treatments were unveiled at ASLMS annual meetings,” said Thomas Rohrer, MD, a board certified dermatologist and ASLMS president in Boston, Mass. “It is the meeting where the information presented gets quoted and referenced at all other meetings the rest of the year.”
The 40th anniversary of the ASLMS and its Annual Conference will feature a wide variety of events and learning opportunities and will be a true celebration of excellence, both past and future. Highlights include:
- The Plenary Session special presentation, 40 Years in 40 Minutes, which will com- memorate the society’s history and highlight key breakthroughs and luminaries in laser and energy-based medicine.
- The sixth annual celebration of ASLMS’s Women in Energy-Based Devices (WEBD). This year’s theme is 40 Light Years: Illuminating Women in Lasers and Light Devices. This event will highlight the excellence of women involved in the ASLMS and feature inspiring speakers and panelists.
- The non-CME Tech Connect session is where experts share their unbiased and unfiltered preferences for specific devices and treatments. Presentations and discussions will include the newest developments in picosecond devices, women’s health, body contouring and scar treatment.
- During the Cutting-Edge session, industry luminaries will share the very latest in the recent offspring of selective cryolysis, expanded application of laser- assisted drug delivery and laser-based X-ray sources for disease detection and treatment.
No conference presents as much high-quality, new information on lasers and energy-based devices anywhere in the world. To stay on the cutting edge of this industry, register for ASLMS 2021.
