Notes From The American Academy of Dermatology AAD Meeting 2012

I have just recently returned from San Diego, California where I attended the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) meeting and having finally recovered from the jet lag thought I would give you a report about what is happening on the other side of the pond!

Skin Analysis and Digital Imaging: Getting under your clients skin

How do you prove to yourself and clients that what you are recommending to them and treating them with actually works?

VIVA LAS IAAFA! A round-up of this year's meeting.

I recently attended the Annual Conference of the International Academy of Advanced Facial Aesthetics (IAAFA), held at the Royal Society of Medicine on 3rd & 4th September 2010. The meeting, now in its fourth year, saw a good cross section of the U.K. aesthetic industry.

The Mad, Mad World of Medical Aesthetics

It has been reported that a company in Doncaster is once again offering botulinum toxin training to Beauty Therapists. The fact that this is allowed to happen demonstrates the ridiculous lack of legislation in this country regarding medical aesthetics.

Doctors to come off GMC register and retrain as beauty therapists?

It currently looks like a beauty salon, even if they have a visiting doctor, dentist or nurse doing injectables, carrying out skin rejuvenation and hair removal with a laser or IPL would not need to be registered.
