Dr. Paula Hicks has devoted a majority of her continued medical education to cutting-edge technology, gladly taking any opportunity to expand her knowledge and expertise, while providing her medical staff opportunities to do the same. Dr. Hicks was recently accompanied by Deb Hoesing, R.N. at a very unique opportunity, participating in an advanced facial anatomy course at a Cadaveric Bioskills Laboratory in Baltimore, Maryland, VISTA Lab.

VISTA provides the most comprehensive training by offering the latest medical devices and techniques to medical professionals. During their independent lab, they gained new insights and perfected techniques, while delving into the latest developments in modern science.

Additionally, Lindsey Roder, Clinical Assistant, has just returned from CoolSculpting University, a comprehensive 3-day training program. CoolSculpting, a revolution in body contouring, is a non-invasive technology that uses a patented cooling process to target and eliminate fat cells, without surgery or downtime. With more than 6 million CoolSculpting treatments worldwide, it offers undeniable results with high patient satisfaction.

We offer all of the nine different CoolSculpting applicators that target different areas of the body, including abdomen, thighs, upper arms, love handles, and chin. Lindsey was able to gain expertise on all applicators, markings and measurements through her hands-on training, as well as the science behind Cryolipolysis (“cryo” -intense cold, “lipolysis” -fat cell death). All of this new information from CoolSculpting University will help our staff to provide our clients with the best treatments and plans possible!

We are very excited to have everyone back and to incorporate their findings into our work here. Our education truly never ends at Avé Medical Laser Spa!
