A meeting of minds

Now in its eighth year, the Aesthetic Medicine Live educational programme has gone from strength to strength with multiple conference agendas spanning the two days. We have the medical-only two-day CPD accredited clinical conference encompassing aesthetic regenerative medicine and current practices in nonsurgical aesthetics. For surgeons we have the UK Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (UKAAPS) and Consortium of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic Owners (CAPSCO) meeting being hosted at the event and for those working in the field of hair restoration we are once again hosting the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) meeting.

Featuring leading speakers from around the globe, our interactive conference format inspires discussion and audience participation to enhance the learning experience.


This year, the conference will be medical only and will start with a focus on the latest non-surgical treatments and protocols for the face and body.

Chaired by Dr Anna Hemming and Dr Shirin Lakhani, the Friday morning agenda will feature talks on topics such as Combination therapies for the eye area (Dr Rita Nandi); Fat dissolving injections side effects (Mr Arturo Almeida); Beyond RF Microneedling: The Next Evolution in Skin Resurfacing (Mr Kambiz Golchin); The natural touch of dermal filler (Dr Anna Hemming); Non Thermal Laser – How you can now treat BMI up to 40 (Dr Natalie Geary); Restoring youth to the upper midface by blending the lid-cheek junction (Dr Anna Maria Fenech Magrin); Communication styles and successful patient interactions (Dr Sharon Kaur) and Nutrition and dietary supplements for skin health (Kim Pearson).
