Aesthetics reveals what to expect from the free Expert Clinic sessions at the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2017
On March 31 and April 1 2017 the Business Design Centre in London will open its doors to the UK’s leading educational event in medical aesthetics – ACE 2017.
In 2016, the Expert Clinics were immensely popular, remaining consistently full for the two-day event and, with exciting new changes planned for 2017, it is certain to remain a highlight of the comprehensive agenda. The sponsored programme will be presented in one large space located in the Exhibition Hall, with improved seating, sound quality and access, ensuring that delegates have the best experience and opportunity to benefit from the advice and guidance on offer.
Each session will encompass practical workshops and demonstrations performed by world-renowned aesthetic practitioners on a variety of topics from injectables to lasers and cosmeceuticals. Aesthetic companies supporting the Expert Clinic agenda will feature their most knowledgeable speakers, including those representing AesthetiCare, AestheticSource, AlumierMD, Church Pharmacy, Cynosure UK, Fusion GT, HA Derma, Lynton Lasers, Merz Aesthetics, Mesoestetic, Neocosmedix, Rosmetics and Teoxane UK, with more to follow.
Planning for the sessions and live demonstrations is well underway, and we are thrilled to provide some exclusive details of what to expect. Aesthetic technology manufacturer Lynton Lasers will sponsor the session: The Truth Behind the Picosecond Laser Phenomena, which will include a discussion on the number of picosecond laser technologies released into the industry alongside multi-million dollar marketing campaigns over the past three to four years. In particular, the session will explore how campaigns promote devices’ clinical benefits for the reduction in the number of treatments required for clearance of unwanted tattoos and pigmented lesions. The speaker will aim to uncover the clinical data and financial benefits of the rapidly evolving technology, and will deliberate findings from a number of case studies carried out in clinic.
Skincare developer AlumierMD will sponsor the session Mindful Peeling, which will include a live demonstration of an AlumierMD Radiant chemical peel. A leading KOL for the company will discuss patients’ sensitive skin following a peel and will also showcase how to perform ‘mindful’ application and removal techniques to create a much better overall experience for patients.
Aesthetic distributor HA Derma will support two Expert Clinic sessions at ACE 2017. On Friday afternoon Dr Irfan Mian will present an introduction to Profhilo, for practitioners looking to learn more about the new hyaluronic acid injectable, which aims to treat skin laxity without the use of 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE). On Saturday morning, Dr Ravi Jain will give an advanced presentation, which will include discussion on a new indication for Profhilo, and new advanced protocols for soft tissue filler Aliaxin.
Laser and light-based aesthetic treatment and manufacturing company Cynosure will also sponsor an Expert Clinic session on Saturday morning, which will focus on the SculpSure laser for body contouring, a treatment area which has been a huge trend in 2016, and looks set to continue in 2017.
Consultant plastic surgeon Mr Adrian Richards, who presented at ACE 2016, said, “Attending the Expert Clinic is a great way to see many practitioners and experts discuss a variety of topics which you often don’t get the opportunity to see at many other events. There is a wealth of experience, knowledge and information available at the clinic for delegates to pick and choose which is most relevant to them. It is also an excellent opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and share learning experiences.”
All of the 17 Expert Clinic sessions will last 30 minutes and will be worth 0.5 CPD points each. Those who register for ACE 2017 will not only have free access to the Expert Clinic sessions, but will also be able to attend the Masterclasses, which will comprise presentations and live demonstrations from leading industry KOLs; and the Business Track sessions, which will be situated on the ground floor of the Exhibition, with talks from experienced practitioners, consultants and advisors, all aimed at helping practitioners to improve the running of their aesthetic business.
