The UK’s leading dermatologists, plastic surgeons and aesthetic practitioners will be coming together on Friday 10 November in Birmingham, to explore the latest in new skin treatments and technologies.
The Medical Convention 2017, which will be in its 13th year, will be held at The Vox Conference Centre, Resorts World Birmingham and is expected to draw in up to 200 delegates. The event, which includes a conference and exhibition, aims to provide delegates with a hub of industry expertise and a chance to gain a better understanding of brand new treatments and emerging technologies.
The one-day convention will consist of medical seminars and provide attendees with networking opportunities, an aesthetics and skincare exhibition, CPD points and lunch and refreshments. It aims to harness knowledge and experience from across the aesthetics sector with the hope of inspiring industry-leading care and improving patient outcomes. “Anyone who’s interested in skin treatment, whether they’re a dermatologist, nurse, or a professional interested in aesthetic practice, I would definitely recommend attending this event,” said consultant dermatologist Dr Irshad Zaki. “It’s a good way of learning new things, networking and meeting people who deliver similar treatments.”
The programme will include talks on: patient consultation, treatment planning using MD Codes, a review of data on nutraceutical Fernblock, advancements in skincare, supplements for skin health, skin peels, treating female facial hirsutism, acne scarring, laser technology and a panel discussion on how to avoid complaints and litigation, chaired by group medical director at sk:n, Dr Daron Seukeran.
Dr Seukeran said that the seminar topics chosen for the event are selected with the specific challenges of aesthetics practitioners in mind, “What is really important is for us to have a programme that is relevant to consultant dermatologists, consultant plastic surgeons and doctors in aesthetic medicine – and also to nurses, therapists and clinic managers,” he said.
There are a limited number of spaces available and delegates are encouraged to book now to ensure they do not miss out.
