The Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine (ACAM) and the Australasian Society of Cosmetic Medicine (ASCM) are once again proud to support the 9th National Laser and Cosmetic Medicine Conference (LCMC 2013), being held in Sydney from 16 – 17 November 2013.
This important conference targets cosmetic physicians, cosmetic and plastic surgeons, dermatologists as well as nurses and other cosmetic practitioners from across Australia and the region.
The conference program features new treatments and procedures including regenerative use of stem cells, non-surgical facelift, liposculpture techniques and more familiar treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. New areas of anti-ageing medicine will be introduced and the latest advances in non-surgical and surgical management of skin cancer.
The recent inter-jurisdictional Cosmetic Surgery Working Group emphasised the need to ensure medical practitioners undertaking cosmetic, medical and surgical procedures are part of a program of peer review and ongoing education. To this end, LCMC 2013 is accredited with the RACGP QI and CPD program.
ACAM President, Dr Jass Narulla said, “New regenerative techniques such as stem cell therapies and less invasive procedures provide a greater treatment choice with excellent results and minimum intervention. This conference is an ideal opportunity to learn from leading practitioners in the field of cosmetic medicine, surgery and anti-ageing medicine.”
Running concurrently with the conference is a course for nurses and paramedical staff on IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and laser treatment techniques. This course, delivered by GrayClay Medical Aesthetics Education, is a solid entry point for any practitioner wanting to enter the industry with sound knowledge and understanding in a number of treatment areas including, vascular, pigmentation, rejuvenation, acne and hair removal.
The conference will also feature an extensive industry exhibition with the latest equipment and products on display and for trial.
