A great success

September 25 saw Aesthetic Medicine North return to Manchester Central for the first time since 2019, reuniting practitioners in the Midlands, the North and Scotland.

The only conference and trade show for aesthetics professionals in the North, the event attracted a total of 479 visitors keen to gain valuable education and see leading suppliers and distributors all under one roof.

The event also gave visitors the chance to network face-to-face and catch up with industry friends, colleagues, mentors and peers for the first time in almost two years.

Georgia Seago, editor of Aesthetic Medicine, commented: “It was amazing to be back in Manchester again after so long with so many aesthetic professionals together, both wellknown names and those new to the field. We’d like to extend a big ‘thank you’ from the AM team to all those who made the show a success.”

ELEVATING THE INDUSTRY WITH LEADING BRANDS

Industry-leading suppliers took to the show floor, including HA-Derma (Headline Sponsor), Mesoestetic (Gold Sponsor), Barrier Healthcare, BestBrothers, Cambridge Stratum, Cosmetic Insure, Enhance Insurance, Get Harley, Harley Technologies, HydraFacial UK, Inbody UK, Inmode, Inspire to Outstand, L’Aesthetics, Lynton, Observ, PRP Lab, Roseway Labs, Solta Medical, and The National Medical Weight Loss Programme, plus many more. Here’s what they had to say about the event:

“We had a great show at Aesthetic Medicine North. It has been excellent. Everyone who has been here has been very interested and we have spent much more time talking to people that are interested in eventually buying the products. The North is vital. There’s so much happening up here. It has been very good for us.” – John Culbert, managing director, Cambridge Stratum

“We have been able to meet clinics from the North and this is who we were targeting to grow our business, which is primarily Londonbased at the moment. It’s been really good for us.” – Dr Shameema Damree, founder, EvoCyte

“We are a Northern-based company so we are all about supporting Northern events. It is nice to be able to come to an event in Manchester that is enabling networking between peers who have a similar demographic to each other. We are a spin-off from Manchester University so any opportunity to do a show in Manchester, we are here.” – Hayley Jones, sales and marketing director, Lynton

EDUCATION

A range of CPD-accredited education was held at the event, packing more variety than ever before into just one day.

The clinical conference gave the opportunity for delegates to gain new perspectives and make valuable connections. The programme featured multiple sessions on dermal fillers for the face, bringing delegates up to date with our faculty’s clinical experiences and advice on techniques and assessment.

Expert speakers and KOLs covered topics such as anatomy, combination treatments and non-surgical buttock augmentation. This year’s speaker faculty included Mr Arturo Almeida, Dr Raj Thethi, Tracey Dennison, Mr Ali Ghanem, Amanda Wilson, Dr Martyn King, Dr Uche Aniagwu, Dr Pradnya Apte, Dr Martin Kinsella, Anna Baker and Sara Cheeney.

The business workshops gave attendees tips that they could take back to their clinics and implement straight away. Sessions included: True wealth from aesthetics with Phil Elder and How to build (and keep) a million pound clinic, whatever the world throws at you, with Alan Adams. Other speakers included Vanessa Bird and Alex Bugg who shared the stage, and Laura Moxham, speaking on Treatment menus that sell and Five mistakes that’ll kill your Google ads (and how to fix them), respectively.

There was also a demo stage with Sara Cheeney speaking about how to tighten, brighten and lift with InMode and ZO combination protocols, featuring a live demo of Morpheus8, and Dr Ahmed El Houssieny with his talk on Rejuvenating vascular and pigmented skins with light-based facials, on behalf of Lynton.

Adrian Baker, Anna Baker and Dr Raphael Mohammed spoke for Headline Sponsor HA-Derma at its workshops. Workshop 1 was an introduction to the four pillars of the IBSA Derma portfolio – prevention, correction, volumisation and regeneration – while Workshop 2 showcased demonstrations of how to successfully combine mesotherapy, skinboosters, dermal fillers and biomodelling for results-driven treatment plans.

Sara Cheeney, who runs the Pure Perfection Clinic in Wrexham and spoke across multiple agendas said, “It’s really important for me that Aesthetic Medicine is in the North because it’s closer to home for me than travelling all the way to London. It’s really important that we have these events in the North because we need to raise the standards within the industry, share common practise, share what we do best and help each other grow. The North is a massive, growing area so it’s really important that people attend these events and we have more going on in the North.”

Dr MJ Rowland Warmann, lead clinician at Smileworks Liverpool, who spoke on the clinical agenda, said, “It has been absolutely wonderful speaking at a live event again.

It’s great meeting people face-to-face and network. Human interaction at these events is wonderful, so I have had an absolute blast. I think it gives people the opportunity to engage with people in their area. It’s not always easy for people to go down to London for a day.

“I always come to trade shows for the educational opportunities. I want to see speakers who are putting the latest techniques to use and sharing their outcomes and experience.”

COLLABORATIONS

Aesthetic Medicine North was delighted to partner with the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) for its annual meeting, bringing more education for trichologists and hair transplant surgeons. This year’s meeting was attended by those offering or looking to offer surgical and nonsurgical hair restoration treatments within their business.

We were also delighted to partner with the International College of Aesthetic Nurses (ICAN) for the first time for a halfday mini-conference designed exclusively for nursing professionals in aesthetic medicine, founded by independent nurse prescriber Amanda Wilson. Speakers included Neil Pybis and Sara Cheeney.

Aesthetic Medicine North will return to Manchester Central next year on Saturday 24 September 2022.
