The Annual Conference of the British Medical Laser Association (BMLA) has introduced aesthetics orientated sessions into its agenda for the first time.
The 35th annual conference, which will take place in Manchester between May 17-19, will include three sessions focused on using lasers for aesthetic treatments.
Consultant dermatologist Dr Firas Al-Niaimi will be chairing two sessions, Non-laser Aesthetics and Lasers and Light Sources in Aesthetics and a session titled Lasers and Light Sources in Aesthetics will be chaired by Claudia van de Lugt.
“BLMA is a scientific meeting that combines scientists, physicists, doctors, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals who use lasers that incorporates a nice balance between science and applications of lasers, said Dr Al-Niaimi, who is also on the BMLA executive committee.
Dr Al-Niaimi added, “For the first time the BMLA is going to have an aesthetics oriented session – delegates attending the conference can look forward new parallel sessions on aesthetics, two of which will be chaired by myself. There are also courses for beginners in lasers for those who are newer to using these devices. I am really looking forward to the conference this year as it’s a great opportunity to interact with colleagues and fellow laser users and to share knowledge and experiences.”
