Prollenium Toronto Symposium

22 Aug 2022

For the first time since the pandemic, Canadian-based aesthetic manufacturer Prollenium Medical Technologies invited 300 clients from across North America and the UK to its Toronto Symposium.

Ario Khoshbin, founder and CEO of Prollenium, opened the event and delivered an inspirational talk on business entrepreneurship. He said that growing your business takes time and advised not to skip any of the small steps in your journey.

Consultant cleft and maxillofacial surgeon Mr Mark Devlin and consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon Mr Jeff Downie were then welcomed to the stage, wearing Scottish ‘see you Jimmy hats’ which were met with applause from the North American audience. They discussed lip complications and anatomy, and shared their literature research on labial vascular compromise (LVC), suggesting a classification system into type 1 and type 2. They proposed that if accepted, this new classification could allow for better comparison of outcomes and treatments with a common endpoint.

International practice management consultant Jay Shoor then presented several talks, including his top 10 ways to credential your practice and why doing so is important, as well as the art of the patient follow-up and how to keep patients coming back.

World-renowned Canadian plastic surgeon Dr Arthur Swift took to the stage on the second day, explaining his vectors for assessing facial ageing: deflection, deterioration, descent, disproportion, dynamic discord and direction of ageing. He then outlined different injection techniques, with accompanying cadaver anatomy videos from anatomist Professor Sebastian Cotofana. “Understanding the anatomy is still the number one way to prevent complications,” Dr Swift emphasised. He then performed two full-face live demonstrations using the Revanesse range of fillers by Prollenium, explaining how to get consistent, reliable and reproducible results.

The learning was accompanied by three lavish evenings of networking events, including a welcome dinner at the ballroom in the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, a cocktail party at the Gardiner Museum and an elegant gala dinner at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Following the event, Khoshbin and president Khasha Ighanian said, “We would like to thank each and every one of our clients for joining us for our 2022 Prollenium Toronto Symposium. We like to give back to our clients, and we hope everyone had a wonderful time learning and networking. We are looking forward to inviting delegates from the US, Canada and UK back again next year!”

Attending the event from the UK as delegates were aesthetic nurse prescribers Lou Sommereux, Anthea Whiteley and Sharon Bennett, aesthetic practitioner Dr Lorraine Hill and surgeon Mr Dean Rhobaye.

Dr Hill said of the event, “It certainly felt like a real privilege to be invited on such an exclusive trip. The speakers at the meetings were all high calibre, and provided good insights and ideas. The highlight of the symposium had to be a full-day of absorbing the knowledge and inspiration of Dr Swift. I came away with new tips, tricks and techniques that I have already put into practice. He is a delight to learn from, the day went far too quickly.
