The Australian Society of Cosmetic Dermatologists Symposium took place from February 25th to 27th at the Crown Conference Centre in Melbourne.

Having a strategic alliance with the Australian Society of Cosmetic Dermatology we were delighted to have Professor Terry Everitt represent APAN at their recent face-to-face conference. 

Here is his report on what was featured:

While this conference is primarily for dermatologists, it is a must for those serious about working with or alongside cosmetic dermatologists or in associated areas.

Not precisely the year of freedom, yet it appeared that way as the Crown Conference Centre was taken over in February by well-attended face to face presentations by a cascade of thought leaders in the cosmetic medicine and dermatology space.

Headed by Professor Greg Goodman, the range of topic matter was vast.

Over three days, each stream has a host of speakers telling of their experiences with the various techniques and better performing client services.

All came together to begin the day for the plenary sessions covering such rich topics as Finessing the cosmetic consult; Predicting the future; Personalisation vs Standardisation; Innovation in social media; Hyaluronidase – a clinical view among many others.

Then a choice of streams to attend under sessions such as

  • Controversies and innovations
  • Energy Bases devises- good, bad and the future
  • Practice management
  • Injectable controversies
  • Non-laser favourite techniques 

A blend of Australian and international speakers, live in-person and electronic, kept the flow of information.

Not only the presentations, yet a wide range of the exhibitors presented their latest wares in devices and cosmeceuticals.

Lots of food and drinks at each break, allowing ample time to see all the excitement that the exhibitors had to show and, of course, always the welcome drinks and gala dinner as different social events.

The dinner was off-site at the newly opened Centrepiece, Melbourne Park – the home of tennis.

Congratulations to the Society and the Production House for such another fantastic event, and patiently waiting to see what the 2023 symposium will bring – again at the Crown Convention Centre in Melbourne.

The images tell the story more than my words can.
