                                     they have all been truly amazed that it is a pain free treatment.

     Cosmetic News Expo 2010 | Show Review

                                             We celebrate the success of
                                             the uK’s biggest aesthetic
                                             meeting, the Cosmetic news
                                             expo, and give you a round up
                                             of what happened

                                             april 16 and 17 saw the first ever
                                             Cosmetic news expo taking place at
                                             the Business Design Centre in Islington,
                                             london. Despite a natural disaster
                                             stopping some of our delegates, speakers
                                             and exhibitors from attending, the show
                                             was a great success with more than 600
                                             visitors across the two days.
                                             The Cosmetic News Expo was the UK’s first free of charge trade event for the
                                             aesthetics industry, offering aesthetic professionals the chance to gain CPD
                                             accredited education at the same time as networking and exchanging
                                             information with their peers and finding out about the latest technologies and
                                             products on the market, all under one roof.

                                             The philosophy behind the event came from Body Media’s extensive
                                             experience in running shows for other niche markets and the company’s passion
                                             for making education available to everyone, no matter what their budget.
                                             The event was attended by cosmetic doctors, aesthetic nurses, dermatologists,
                                             plastic surgeons, cosmetic dentists, aestheticians and practice managers from
                                             across the UK, with many new faces from other medical specialties, keen to
                                             move into the field, also taking part. The show also had huge support from
                                             the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers with more than 60 exhibitors
                                             showcasing their products and treatments.

                                             Cosmetic News publisher Charlotte Body was delighted with the success of the
                                             company’s first aesthetics event. She said, “Expo has proved that an event of
                                             this scale is an asset to the industry in the UK, and the quality of professionals
                                             that attended the show is a perfect testimony to this. We are already looking
                                             forward to 2011 and feel that, with one successful show under our belt, that the
                                             event will be much anticipated and the most prominent date in the diary for the
                                             UK aesthetic calendar. On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone who
                                             supported the event, especially my fabulous team that pulled it off.”

                             The association of advanced laser Body Sculpture (aalBS) was promoting its new
                             collaboration with the Clinical Exchange in Guildford. The specialist training organisation, headed up by
                             leading vascular surgeon Mr Mark Whiteley, who was a speaker at this year’s Expo, will now offer AALBS
                             training in laser sweat ablation and endovenous occlusion. AALBS is dedicated to training and educating
                             physicians from all over the world in the field of aesthetic laser lipolysis and has not only established
                             treatment regimes but is continually consulting physicians on the best laser lipolysis procedures available
                             to ensure the greatest possible results in the treatment. The association was also promoting its new
                             reference clinic and training centre, the Epsom Skin Clinic, headed up by Dr Paul Stevenson. Dr Stevenson
                             is one of only two people in the world to have carried out laser lipolysis blepharoplasty and AALBS will
                             be announcing course dates for training in this procedure soon. Dr Stevenson will also provide training in
                             other laser lipolysis and advanced laser lipolysis procedures.

                             aBC lasers was showcasing its market-leading systems including the new Soprano Blue, which has a
                             lighter handpiece and higher fluence than its sister system the Soprano XL, as well as a large interactive
                             touch screen display (see this month’s Editor’s Choice p4 for more information).

                             aesthetiCare® was promoting its wide range of products. The company has had particular
                             success in the last year with its Genuine Dermaroller™. Dr Sach Mohan presented on the treatment
                             and gave a lecture entitled ‘Genuine Dermaroller™ Therapy: Medical Device Technology, Clinical
                             Procedures and Outcomes’ as part of the Medical needling session, which was incredibly well
                             received by delegates. The company’s managing director Roger Bloxham said, “We got a lot of quality
                             leads to justify going and that will generate a return for AesthetiCare®. There was a good mix of new
                             and existing clients, and overall it worked very well.”

                             aesthetic recruitment’s            founder Vivienne Smith presented on ‘The Need for Adequately
                             Trained Professionals in a Competitive Market’ as part of the Managing Staff and recruitment
                             Workshop. Aesthetic Recruitment’s aim is to provide practitioners with the degree of help needed to
                             raise the standard of care to which practitioners and their patients have come to expect, by means of
                             mentoring and ongoing support.

                             arC recruitment picked up a number of leads for high profile projects from the event and was
                             particularly pleased by the number of new faces in attendance. managing director John Sellers
                             also took to the podium to present on ‘How to Make Yourself Employable in a Competitive Market’
                             as part of the Managing Staff and recruitment Workshop on the final day of the event. He said,
                             “We were impressed with the quality and calibre of the delegates and we had several conversations
                             which we hope will lead to long term relationships. In that respect, we view the Cosmetic News Expo
                             as a great success”
