The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) will hold the RSM Aesthetics conference, which is now in its 10th year, on Friday February 23.
This year’s theme is ‘multidisciplinary, evidence-based and patient-centred aesthetics care’ and will aim to bring together a multi-professional faculty to identify and discuss options for aesthetic care.
The format will include short presentations, panel discussions, case presentations and clinical demonstrations, while promoting peer-to-peer interaction.
There will also be two sets of one hour workshops running concurrently with the main scientific conference, which will include sessions on fillers and threads for beginners.
Among the topics covered at this year’s conference will be stem cell technology and cosmeceuticals with Dr Mitchel Goldman, skin tightening with Dr Julia Sevi, chemical peel protocols by aesthetic nurse Shannon Lister, as well as ethical marketing by consultant plastic surgeon Mr Paul Harris.
Dr Harryono Judodihardjo, who is president elect designate on the committee, said he really enjoys the RSM because of the high-quality of speakers. “Delegates can expect unbiased sharing of experience from the lecturers. The lectures will cover both surgical and medical treatments to correct aesthetic problems that will be delivered by experts in their field,” he said, adding, “On the day, doctors and nurses who are interested in aesthetic treatment can also join the beginners course. The conference is only one day long so it cannot cover every subject, therefore a new topic will be chosen for each year. This year there is a section on ethical marketing and how to identify, avoid and manage doctor-patient relationship break-downs.”
Biotech company CellResearch Corporation will also be unveiling its stem-cell based cosmeceutical range CALECIM at a breakfast symposium which delegates can also attend.
