Birthed out of an industry demand for a publication that will deliver quality educational content, the APJ Journal was launched in June 2009 and was enthusiastically embraced by professionals
and business owners who were seeking support to excel in skin and age-management.


Over the past 13 years, the APJ Journal has been published every quarter, inspiring, educating and empowering industry professionals and their businesses to advance their knowledge and raise their standards to meet the ever-changing consumer expectations through sound, evidence-based practice.


As the official journal of the Aesthetics Practitioners Advisory Network (APAN), APJ is highly committed to covering a broad section of industry topics delivered with a strong focus on education.


Our primary objective has been to provide valuable educational content as the industry faces the challenges of rapid growth, technological advances and fierce competition, as cosmetic medicine merges within the aesthetic space.


Even though each issue may represent a seasonal theme, APJ does not steer away from its comprehensive, diverse, and robust educational content to challenge and inspire practitioners who are
seeking quality scientifically-sound information to base their decisions.


Each issue, therefore, aims to feature information from the
following 19 categories:
• Regulations and regulatory compliance
• Cosmetic ingredient science
• Scientific updates and evidence-based practice
• Advances in equipment technology
• Advances in treatment techniques
• Cosmetic medicine
• Educational qualifications and training
• Business innovations and social media
• Nutrition for skin and age-management
• Aromatherapy
• Health science
• Personal development
• Mental hygiene/mental health
• Professional development/conference programs
