4 Key Learning Points from Wigmore Presents 2023

18 May 2023

On April 29-30, Wigmore Medical hosted the latest Wigmore presents event at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

The event welcomed more than 350 delegates and 55 speakers to enjoy various content streams, with 14 CPD points on offer in total. A variety of content was discussed by dozens of the UK’s top aesthetic practitioners, plus some from further afield. Here are four key topics discussed on the agenda:

  1. Dr Zein Obagi’s approach to skin health was the star feature of the event. The US board-certified dermatologist and founder of ZO Skin Health spoke on both days, first offering an A to Z of skin diagnostics and treatment approaches, before taking a closer look at the endless possibilities that skincare holds in treating a variety of concerns. Dr Obagi shared that his key to successful skin transformations is to take a proactive approach to tackling chronic inflammation first, inducing acute inflammation for four to six weeks before creating a tailored regime for specific skin complaints. 
  1. Innovative use of filler was explored on both days, with practitioners including Dr Emma and Simon Ravichandran, Dr Vincent Wong, Dr Raj Thethi and Dr Mayoni Gooneratne discussing uncommon treatment areas like the earlobes, ‘cankles’, knees and vagina.
  2. A toxin review with Dr Shirin Lakhani, Dr Tapan Patel, Dr David Eccleston, Dr Simon Ravichandran and Professor Syed Haq offered a chance to compare some of the biggest toxins on the market. Alluzience, Bocouture, Letybo and Nuceiva were discussed, and questions were raised such as new toxin indications like oily skin, erythema and rosacea.
  3. Regenerative medicine was spotlighted, with Professor Haq and Mr Ali Ghanem leading the session exploring exosomes, plant-based stem cells, growth factors, platelet-rich plasma and more in aesthetics. The symposium provided an overview of current research on regenerative methods, and addressed the potential efficacy of such treatments in aesthetics.

Raffi Eghiayan, product development and marketing director of Wigmore Medical, reflected, “In 2022, we launched Wigmore Presents to test the water and see if there was appetite in the industry to go back to a smaller boutique conference, and 2023 showed us that there is. We hosted an excellent agenda across the two days, covering all aspects of aesthetics, with some new faces and old friends headlining and showcasing their skills.”
