Meeting Information

A CORE SPECIALTY CONFERENCE

FACTS, PERSPECTIVES, AND CONTROVERSY

A balance between the science and business of aesthetic medicine.

Never before has the public had so many techniques, devices, and aesthetic providers to help them look their best. And yet some might question the current health of aesthetic medicine given the plethora those who practice in this space and quality of their devices.  A thorough critique of techniques, devices and aesthetic practices is in order.

The program consists of outstanding lecturers known for their skills not only in aesthetic medicine, but also in their ability to discuss their subjects in an energetic and compelling way.

All talks will be substantial in current content, brief, and pithy, allowing the majority of the time to be devoted to discussion. This is a conference for all who wish to learn and contribute.

Join us in June for a sharing of knowledge and techniques in order to advance the medical specialties focused on aesthetic medicine, and better treat our patients.
