BACN Updates - March 2021

02 Mar 2021

A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses


February’s In Focus theme ‘Trends in Complications’ kicked off with BACN Vice Chair Sharon King speaking with Professor Ewa Skrzypek in the second of the BACN’s In Conversation With digital series. Discussing implications in regards to COVID-19, and complications involving soft tissue inflammation, Sharon and Professor Skrzypek offered interesting insights into the challenges that medical practitioners will face in 2021 and beyond.

The event was a warm up for the digital webinar also focusing on the theme of complications. Sharon led a roundtable discussion with BACN Management Committee members Linda Mather and Rachel Goddard, and BACN Honorary Member and aesthetic medico-legal expert witness Liz Bardolph, sparking lively debate and advice for BACN members. BACN members who missed out are encouraged to watch the recording which can be found in the member’s area of the BACN website.

Finishing the month, BACN Honorary Member and Regional Leader for East Anglia Lou Sommereux led the peer review and social. The new format of BACN events has enabled members to engage with their membership each and every month to prevent isolation at this difficult time.


This month the BACN will be working directly with Church Pharmacy for the theme ‘All Things Temples’. Lou Sommereux will be speaking with Dr Vikram Swaminathan via Instagram Live on Tuesday March 16 at 6pm. Dr Swaminathan has been working in surgical and aesthetic specialties for more than 10 years. Having discovered his passion for non-surgical aesthetic rejuvenation, he went on to work for many of the national cosmetic chains and training providers, before providing aesthetic services through his own clinics. BACN members also have exclusive access to March’s digital webinar on Tuesday March 23 discussing Temples, Brows & Lateral Orbital Lifting using YVOIRE® with Dr Andrew Greenwood and nurse Yvette Newman. As before, members will be encouraged to send their questions to BACN Events Manager Tara Glover at
