Topic: THE NEW STANDARDS REVOLUTION
Presenter: Tina Viney, CEO of APAN

Ever-evolving and constantly changing our industry is currently exposed to incredible choices in technologies, new techniques and the option of moving forward in specific areas of specialisation. Meanwhile, with these opportunities also come new challenges and threats – can you deliver the specific level of results that you are promising, and can other practitioners within the healthcare profession provide consumers with better options? Clearly, the industry needs higher levels of education to ensure continued growth and business success. Additionally, new industry structures and platforms are also needed to better support this new era of rapid advancement that is redefining the scope of practice of our industry.

Tina Viney is an industry governance expert and visionary who meticulously studies consumer and industry trends for the purpose of alerting the aesthetics industry on what lies ahead. As the CEO of APAN she is relentlessly and passionately committed to the protection of the aesthetics industry through her close involvement with government regulators and in identifying innovative pathways to support a more secure and better future for practitioners and their businesses in the aesthetics industry. In this lecture she will present compelling information on the launch of three new industry initiatives, their purpose and aim in supporting you and providing the pathway for current and future regulations and securing a strong future for you, your business and the industry.

Topic: THE BENEFITS OF ACCREDITING YOUR BUSINESS
Presenter: Mr Stacy Kambouris – QIP consultant and assessor

As competition becomes fierce many businesses are reverting to discounting in order to gain access to new clients. However, research is confirming a new trend – consumers are now looking past the price point to the quality, credibility and value of what they are paying for as the key deciding factor that will determine their choice, especially when it comes to services. In support of the aesthetics industry APAN has established a Strategic Alliance Partnership with Quality Innovation Performance (QIP).

QIP is Australia’s most comprehensive accreditation provider, supporting health, community and human services organisations. Through the QIP Health Service Accreditation Program clinics and salons in the aesthetics industry can now be assessed against the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS) and gain external validation for complying with the highest possible health and service standards. Stacy Kambouris is a QIP consultant and assessor with extensive experience and knowledge in the area of assessment and compliance in quality standards. He has helped numerous businesses gain certification and accreditation. In this lecture he will share the value and benefit of the QIP/APAN accreditation program and how this can help propel your business to greater recognition and growth.


At this lecture you will learn:

  • The importance of external validation
  • Understanding Risk Management
  • Good Governance
  • Outcomes and measure

Topic: THE POWER OF THE AMAZING CELL MEMBRANE
Presenters: Gay Wardle and Lynette Rouse

With new advances in technology and increased competition every business is challenged to continually reach new levels of treatment outcomes. This is now the expected norm by results- driven consumers. However, following standardised procedural protocols alone may not necessarily guarantee the results your clients are expecting. The reasons may be many and varied, but often they are due to a compromised or dysfunctional cell membrane that is inhibiting the delivery of nutrients through the cell wall, or even the release of wastes from within. Gay Wardle and Lynette Rouse both have many years of experience as practitioners, business owners and trainers and educators.

Furthermore, they both hold tertiary-level qualification in health sciences, so their information is both scientifically sound and practical. In this presentation Gay and Lynette will deliver some amazing information in a fun, interactive and dynamic way that will allow you to clearly understand the cell membrane and the communication mechanisms that directly influence all intracellular and extracellular activity, what compromise them and ways to overcome them.

At this lecture you will learn:

  • The biology and physiology of the cell and the role of the cell membrane
  • What compromises its function and how this can sabotage your treatment results
  • How to create a wellness environment to optimise the function of the cell membrane
  • Ingredient choices to help you optimise skin health and treatment results.

Topic: COMBINATION THERAPIES FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS IN SKIN REJUVATION
Presenter: Dr Ingrid Tall MBBs, Dip. Comn., F.R.A.C.G.P, F.C.P.C.A

Cosmetic medicine today has moved well beyond the frontier of simply using spot treatments with dermal fillers and injectables. Cosmetic clinics can now offer a multitude of treatments affecting various layers of the anatomy, which can be used in combination to help achieve the desired refreshed and natural look. Currently the greatest fear consumers have is that the treatment results may leave them looking unnatural and overdone. Enhancing and refreshing a client’s look can be achieved by incorporating multiple approaches and techniques. These may offer an emphasis on collagen stimulation or collagen boosting to help achieve these goals. Several of these clinical techniques will be discussed in this lecture.

Dr Ingrid Tall is a cosmetic doctor and General Practitioner, former AMA Qld President and TV Medical Journalist, who has over twenty years’ experience in cosmetic medicine. In her lecture Dr Tall will explore some of options (both collagen boosting and non-collagen stimulating) that are available to cosmetic practitioners to enhance clinical outcomes through a combination of therapies in cosmetic medicine and aesthetic practices. These will include IPL, laser, cosmetic injectables, CoolSculpting, Ultherapy, Carboxytherapy, fractional resurfacing, PRP, skin needling and hydra facials etc.

At this lecture you will learn:

  • Updates on cosmetic techniques
  • Valuable proven combination therapies
  • An introduction to Carboxytherapy
  • Key challenges in cosmetic medicine
