Unleashing New Potential at the Medical Longevity Summit

07 Jul 2023

Discover the latest advancements in functional medicine and longevity at CCR

The medical longevity concept is one of increasing interest to practitioners in the aesthetics industry. As a medical aesthetics professional, you are well placed and qualified to discuss the causes of your patients' problems rather than just the symptoms. 

To explore treatments and solutions that are preventative, rather than reactive, and aim to increase health and lifespan. Aesthetics is delighted to introduce the new Medical Longevity Summit, taking place at CCR 2023 on October 19 & 20 at ExCeL London. As the UK’s largest medical aesthetics event, what better place to explore new and ground-breaking medical concepts that benefit patients?

CCR will host a dedicated summit and two-day agenda to educate practitioners on evidence-based practice in functional and integrative medicine, holistic wellbeing, lifestyle and wellness treatment approaches. The summit is free to attend, CPD-certified and open to all CCR visitors.

Longevity and wellness in aesthetics

By incorporating this emerging concept into clinics, practitioners can discover new ways to support their patients. They can expand their treatment offering, increase patient satisfaction and enhance aesthetic outcomes, as well as serving a greater purpose of promoting a healthier society. Medical aesthetic clinics and practitioners are already set up and qualified to offer treatments of this kind, and your patients are already engaged with self-improvement. 

An inside-out approach incorporating services such as patient testing, weight management, intimate health and regenerative medicine could be a perfect addition to existing clinics. Practitioners can help their patients live healthier, more fulfilled lives, whilst achieving their aesthetic goals through a holistic approach to treatment.

Meet the conference curator

The Medical Longevity Summit is curated by Dr Mayoni Gooneratne, with the support of editor and event manager at Aesthetics Shannon Kilgariff. Dr Gooneratne is the co-founder of the newly formed British College of Functional Medicine (BCFM) and founder of functional medicine treatment service Human Health. 

While running her clinic, Dr Gooneratne noticed a connection between enhanced aesthetic outcomes, patient satisfaction and a ‘whole body’ approach to consultation and treatment. By optimising patient care within aesthetic medicine, she believes aesthetic professionals can expand their clinic offering and provide better care to their patients.

Dr Gooneratne says, “Longevity medicine is the future of health, and aesthetics is the perfect place to explore the conversation. The aesthetics industry has always been ahead of the game – always looking at the bigger picture – and we are open-minded about treating patients holistically. You can find out more about so many ways you can implement this by coming to CCR 2023.”
