UK distributor of IBSA Farmaceutici Italia, HA-Derma, invited guests to travel to the picturesque Italian town of Pavia for two days of learning on October 26 and 27.
IBSA's International sales manager, Leo Magnani, welcomed practitioners from the UK, Bulgaria, Georgia, Israel, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Tunisia and Ukraine to the IBSA International Masterclass.
The two-day programme began with an introduction to IBSA and its product portfolio, with the first day dedicated to combination protocols of Aliaxin dermal filler and Profhilo HA hybrid for skin remodelling. Magnani explained the key features of both products and why they are 'different and unique'.
Attendees also enjoyed theory presentations, which were complemented with numerous live demonstrations. Dr Antonello Tateo and Dr Giovanni Salti shared advice on periorbital rejuvenation, forehead and temples, while Professor Daniel Cassuto demonstrated neck and mandibular line techniques. Dr Filippo Brighetti presented and demonstrated non-surgical rhinoplasty.
On the second day, attendees heard talks about IBSA's multi-level tissue regeneration concept and learnt about recommended protocols and clinical studies for the products. These talks were complemented with live demonstrations of the appropriate injection techniques.
Iveta Vinklerova from HA-Derma said, "The feedback we have received was fantastic. We are looking forward to inviting more practitioners from the UK and Ireland in 2018."
Attendee, nurse prescriber Anna Baker said, "It was absolutely fantastic and surpassed my level of expectation."
