SCALE, or the Symposium for Cosmetic Advances and Laser Education, is an annual conference in Nashville, TN that brings together physicians and healthcare professionals practicing in aesthetic medicine, surgery, and dermatology. For over 15 years, SCALE has been successful in bringing these practitioners, their staff, and representatives from brands in aesthetic medicine to discuss and demonstrate the latest and greatest in the field.
In 2020, we all faced challenges as the world shut down to face the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the SCALE Meeting was forced to change to not only comply with federal COVID guidelines but to also aid in preserving the health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees. In order to do so, SCALE went virtual for the very first time. Our very first virtual SCALE meeting was such a success that we wanted to be able to continue training and educating our audience regardless of travel and health restrictions. Thus, the SCALE Up Your Practice Webinar Series was created in December of 2020!
SCALE Up Your Practice with Us!
The SCALE Up Your Practice Webinar Series is an ongoing series of webinars aimed at helping those practicing in cosmetic and medical dermatology, plastic surgery, and aesthetic medicine to continue to learn and grow within their practice, from the comfort and safety of their own home or office.
These webinars are held once a month on Wednesdays from 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm, and not only include powerful information, discussions, and demonstrations from not just our co-founders Dr. Brian Biesman and Dr. Michael Gold, but we also invite guest physicians and experts to help lead and teach these sessions.
Additionally, we always have Mr. Tim Sawyer, of PatientNow, formerly head of Crystal Clear Marketing, to help us understand and utilize social media and other digital platforms to elevate and grow our practices while also connecting and engaging with current and potential patients.
The best part? Whenever you register for one of our webinars, you not only gain access to the live stream, but you can also watch and re-watch whenever you’d like on-demand for up to 90 days after the initial event. Plus, you can earn CME credits too!
To register you must be a: physician, resident/fellow, a non-physician provider such as an RN, NP, PA, or aesthetician, or an office staff member from a practice with a focus on aesthetic medicine.
