Sclerotherapy for Physicians & Nurses is organized by Empire Medical Training (EMT), Inc and will be held on Nov 01, 2019 at Hyatt House Charlotte/Center City, Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America. Description Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer with unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing EMT's training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. EMT's comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today. Target Audience This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of Health Care Practitioners involved in the care of the patients with Aesthetic requests. Credit Designation Physician Credit Medical Education Resources designates this live activity, for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Nurse Credit This CE activity provides 8.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education.
