Clinical and surgical dermatology

A variety of sub-categories in dermatology will provide a wide base of knowledge to the attendees. Areas explored include various types of dermatology, medication and protocols, cosmetics and cosmeceuticals, and dermatological devices/equipment. Two sessions on trichology will provide an insight into different aspects from the more basic issues, such as hair dyes — harm and benefits, to different trichology related diseases, medication, and treatments (e.g. folliculitis). Tools and technologies for diagnosis and highlights in dermatology will explore different modalities and areas, such as FRAXX systems, dermastoscopy, melasma in men, and more. The one-day programme on ‘How to treat…?’ will address practical aspects on a range of treatments of basic and complicated issues, such as acne, hair loss with lymphoma, and scleroderma.

Aesthetic dermatology

The main subjects in non-invasive aesthetic treatment strategies will be covered, ranging from chemical peelings, dermal fillers, and lasers, to new treatments and technologies, including the use of supplements (anti-oxidants and nutraceuticals). Attention will be paid to facial rejuvenation and stretch mark elimination, as well as rejuvenation below the face — from the neck, upper limbs to thighs, and lower body parts without forgetting potential complications and management.

Four intensive sessions focusing on ‘Tips and Tricks for Best Results’ cover various topics from a scale of least to most problematic. Treatment of early and advanced facial ageing will be discussed in detail with basic, advanced, and more complex procedures discussed to cover early and advanced ageing accordingly.

Healthy ageing

Educational sessions regarding effective and safe strategies to promote healthy ageing represent an important part of ICAD BRAZIL 2016. These sessions will run across the full 3 days of the congress, covering a variety of topics.

Updated subjects related to healthy ageing, such as lifestyle medicine, nutrition, stress, and inflammation through mitochondrial disorders will be addressed. Longevity health is targeted with topics ranging from gut microbiota to iodine prescriptions. The session on obesity will cover its modern management, newly approved FDA drugs, and the role of exercise in weight loss. The ‘Sport and Exercise’ session provides nutritional guidelines for muscle mass, exercise for the elderly, and specific muscle training.

The sessions related to healthy and successful ageing will explore the effects of one’s lifestyle, statins and stress inhibitors, and the potential pitfalls of ageing, including how to reduce the risk of cancer as one ages. Related topics, such as cognitive stimulation, sleep, and an individual’s healthy weight will also be discussed. Safe administration of hormones will be addressed covering prescription for the elderly as well as for those suffering from diseases, such as prostate cancer.
