International doctors, dentists and nurses attended a dermal filler and skin booster workshop presented by plastic surgeon Dr Aref Alsoufi at the Scandinavian Skincare Academy in Gloucestershire on March 19.
Delegates from the UK, Sweden, Israel and Norway reported that the highlight of the day was Dr Alsoufi’s technique for lip enhancement and contouring.
The dermal filler and skin booster products chosen for the masterclass were German-made hyaluronic acid products, Hyabell, which are made with lidocaine and are cross-linked using BDDE methods.
Marianne Olavesen-Stabb, founder and president of Scandinavian Skincare Systems, which organised the event, said, “We were delighted to welcome Dr Alsoufi to the Cotswolds as part of our on-going programme to learn and share as much information as possible about the rapidly developing world of dermal fillers and skin boosters, and their combination and techniques. His visit and knowledge has added an additional facet to our advanced medical skincare and aesthetic courses.”
Dr Alsoufi has delivered more than 60 national and international workshops on hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers and has also published several studies in new developments in HA fillers for lip enhancement and contouring.
