On September 20, 140 delegates attended the third International Association for Prevention of Complications in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPCAM) Symposium to learn the latest information and advice on complication recognition, management, and prevention.
Conference director and aesthetic practitioner Dr. Beatriz Molina welcomed guests to the event, along with consultant dermatologist Dr. Sandeep Cliff, who chaired the meeting for the rest of the day.
Throughout the event, delegates were encouraged to interact with the presentations and speakers by casting their vote via a mobile app. This worked particularly well during the case studies, in which the audience was asked to identify the complication they thought was present and share what treatment options they would have chosen.
Delegates were then treated to a canapé style lunch whilst having the opportunity to network with peers and visit the small exhibition which featured well-known companies including Enhance Insurance, AestheticSource, Galderma, HA-Derma, SkinCeuticals and Medical Aesthetic Group.
During the afternoon, Dr. Hemming and Dr. Lakhani showcased a live demonstration of lower face treatment. Following this, the panel shared their complication case studies which encouraged audience participation once again.
The day finished with a short panel discussion where the audience was able to ask for advice, tips, and clarification on what had already taken place that day.
