PALO ALTO, Calif. –  Aug. 17, 2016 — Sciton, a leading manufacturer of aesthetic and surgical medical light-based devices, will host a dermatologist-focused strategic advisory board meeting at the upcoming 3rd annual Masters of Aesthetics Symposium.

The seven expert dermatologists participating in the meeting will include:
