Warren B. Seiler, III, MD, Becomes an Honorary Member of the American Laser Study Club
Warren B. Seiler, III, MD was awarded the prestigious Kumar Patel Prize in Laser Surgery at the ALSC’s second annual Symposium March 29-31, 2019, in Phoenix, AZ and is now an Honorary Member of the American Laser Study Club (ALSC). At the Symposium Dr. Seiler presented on “Cosmetic Laser Protocols and Regimens.”
Dr. Seiler is a board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon, the owner and Medical Director at Seiler Skin and the founder of the Seiler Skin Aesthetic Institute. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame, where he graduated with honors. He graduated medical school from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. After training in general surgery at Carraway Methodist Medical Center in Birmingham, Ala., Dr. Seiler, completed extensive additional cosmetic specialty training, which extends well beyond any traditional residency or fellowship program. This includes in-depth training on the use of lasers and injectables, as well as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in cosmetic medicine under Dr. Charles Runels, the inventor of the Vampire® procedures. He is also a fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
Dr. Seiler completed his specialty board certification through the American Board of Laser Surgery (ABLS). After gaining national recognition as a prodigious provider in laser medicine and surgery, Dr. Seiler was appointed as the Executive Director of the ABLS. He subsequently went on to co-author multiple editions, including the current, ABLS examination textbook and certification exams (written and oral). Most recently, Dr. Seiler co-authored the sixth chapter, Anesthesia in Laser Practice, in the “Textbook of Lasers in Dermatology.”
As Executive Director, he currently serves as a trusted advisor and educator to ABLS members and non-members who seek expert training and higher education opportunities in the field. Dr. Seiler also works with state medical boards, health departments and laser safety societies in the U.S. and abroad to help create stronger safety and training regulations that govern practitioners who provide these procedures.
Dr. Seiler trained and examined practitioners in 11 countries in laser, injection and aesthetic procedures. In 2008, Dr. Seiler founded the Seiler Skin Aesthetic Institute (SSAI), a premier provider of online and hands-on injection, laser, and Vampire®– certified PRP training courses for physician and non-physician cosmetic practitioners. Dr. Seiler’s flagship online course is a comprehensive, CME-certified neurotoxin and filler injection training that empowers practitioners, of all experience levels, with increased confidence and proficiency to enhance their craft and produce superior patient results. Dr. Seiler also has trained practitioners for Allergan—the maker of Botox, Juvederm, SkinMedica, Kybella, and Latisse—and is one of the few expert hands-on trainers for the popular Vampire® procedures.
For nearly a decade, Dr. Seiler has served in the capacity of an expert witness for both plaintiff and defense attorneys in dozens of civil and medical-malpractice lawsuits concerning laser, injection and cosmetic procedures.

About the American Laser Study Club
The ALSC was created to fill the void in current laser dentistry and laser surgery education (i.e., the physics of laser-tissue interaction, such as absorption, scattering, ablation, coagulation and hemostasis, soft and hard tissue ablation, laser safety, etc.) and help Physicians, Dentists, Veterinarians, and Practice Staff Members excel at efficient and safe application of laser energy in everyday practice. ALSC has designed its curriculum based on the peer-reviewed physics reviews on the foundations of laser-tissue interaction and laser surgery, the detailed physics of soft tissue ablation and coagulation with a laser beam and hot tip (non-laser) devices.
