Dr. Cohen is happy to share his unique use of lasers, energy-based devices (Ultherapy, ThermiTight, Thermi250, ThermiVa and ThermiDry), microneedling, Instalift sutures and synthetic fillers. FACES+ has developed a variety of "ThermiFusion" procedures that act in synergy to provide better non-surgical outcomes.

Florencio L. This training made it clearer to methe application and safety of fat grafting especially the nanofat or liquid fat or what I can call 'liquid gold'. The cadaver part made it more instructive.
