Aesthetic practitioners were invited to join Dr Suzan Obagi, Dr David Eccleston and business consultant Marcus Haycock in what was the second Achieving Aesthetic Excellence event on Saturday June 30.
The event, held at the Royal College of Physicians in London, aimed to educate delegates on skin health, customer service and dermal filler complications. It was also Dr Obagi’s first ever trip to the UK.
Dr Obagi held lectures throughout the day, discussing skin anatomy, clinical studies and patient results. Haycock then presented on how to deliver ‘five star customer service’ before Dr Eccleston discussed prevention, recognition and management of dermal filler complications.
Talking exclusively to the Aesthetics journal Dr Obagi commented on the main purpose of the day, “It’s all about education. I am educating practitioners about skincare, breaking it down into basic building blocks and then advising how to address conditions, given the numerous topical agents that are out there. Once I have done that, it really is up to the practitioner to decide what they need to do for their patients. I’m not here to market but instead am arming practitioners with the knowledge to help them get the best results for their patients.”
She added, “I love sharing knowledge, I learn so much by doing these events too! I like showing people what you can do when you fix skin.”
The event then concluded with a focus group session and drinks reception.
Steve Joyce, marketing and technology director of Healthxchange said, "We would like to thank all of of guests, speakers and exhibitors for making Achieving Aesthetic Excellence 2018 such a huge success. To hear from leading experts such as Dr Suzan Obagi on the latest skincare innovations from Obagi and Dr David Eccleston on managing complications with injectables was inspiring, with many of our clients are looking forward to another event next year. Alongside the live demonstrations of ULTRAcel and Envy Facial, advice from Allergan, Hamilton Fraser, Observ and Imagebox PR as well as the official launch of Obagi Medical's first body care product for rough/bumpy skin, KeráPhine, it was a thoroughly successful event."
