On September 14-15, the British Association on Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) hosted its annual Autumn Aesthetic Conference at the Eastside Rooms, Birmingham.
Across the two days, 250 delegates were treated to talks from a variety of top practitioners and industry figures. The first day began with a regulatory update, touching on the government licensing scheme and financial considerations for VAT.
Other talks on the first day included aesthetic practitioner Dr Mayoni Gooneratne speaking on perimenopausal patients, aesthetic nurse Tanya Khan delivering a live demo showcasing natural lip results, and Dr Tom Decates discussing how genetics can influence late-onset filler complications.
The first day was rounded off with a networking drinks reception sponsored by FILLMED, offering an opportunity to build further connections. Delegates had the chance to capture photos at the flower wall photobooth, sponsored by Aesthetics and CCR.
The second day brought talks from aesthetic nurses Sharron Brown and Karen Hunter on treating HIV-related facial lipoatrophy, a panel discussion on off-licence toxin use, and marketing expert Alex Bugg speaking on the marketing possibilities if one decides to delete social media.
The event will return on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September 2024.
