Cosmedica 2011

Okay , I should have blogged this ages ago (just after I attended Cosmedica).
This year was only the second year of its existence but what a well-put together conference it was. With diverse international (Europe, The States and Asia) and local experts it was both exciting and  . Worldwide opinion leaders who are experts in the field of  Botulinum toxin treatments, dermal fillers, lasers, chemical peels, spider vein sclerotherapy and anti-ageing medicine congregated to share their wealth of experience as well as teaching skills.

It was great to meet docs there with the same interests and some old friends from medical school as well.

Gala Dinner - Melrose Arch, Moyo

Dr Jamuna Pai

I was actually more excited about this than the whole Dr Rey thing . Way back when I was in High School I used to read the Indian addition of Femina and religiously read her column. I was so excited to actually see her in person.

 Her history : A medical graduate from Nair Hospital Mumbai, Dr. Jamuna Pai made the switch to cosmetic medicine in 1994 following her lifelong passion for beauty. After completing her training in the United Kingdom and with acclaimed dermatologists from all over the world, Dr. Pai has perfected her well honed skills and has gone on to become a brand in herself. Being Indias leading cosmetic physician for over 15 years, Dr. Pai has always had the first mover advantage in the skin care industry. She constantly updates her techniques and extensive knowledge of the subject by attending training workshops and seminars. She is credited to have pioneered and introduced various skin treatments and techniques over the years such as Fraxel, Thermage, skin lightening peels and filler injections thus giving her the title of being the Pioneer of Cosmetology in India by many. Dr. Pai introduced Botox to India in the year 2000 and has become the single largest injector in India ever since.

Can you believe she is in her 60s?

Dr Robert Rey . I'd have to admit that yes I used to watch Dr 90210 but he was acting crazy at the conference. At the Gala dinner he failed to show up to speak and said he had a sore throat but on twitter he was tweeting topless pics of himself  with girls in his LingeREY at SET night club in Rosebank.  He also took off his shirt in the exhibitor stands area. Not sure if South Africa is really ready for him.

Dr Rey - Much ado about nothing

Dr Anushka Reddy with Dr Des Fernandes (Founder of
Environ) - Absolutely beautiful place in Newlands , Cape town. I once attended a conference here in third year. I was exhibiting and speaking about on an oral microbiology research project (IADR)

Taking into account the demand of the public for SAFE therapies to look and feel better and younger, Cosmedica 2012 has prepared an important program of educational sessions combining SAFE anti-ageing practice with non-invasive aesthetic techniques. A highlight of this years program is the facial cadaver dissection with international experts which will be broadcast LIVE from the University of Cape Town’s anatomy department. This is an important session for doctors who want to learn how to administer injectables safely.

A new addition to this year’s congress are the expert teaching courses. This will include the ‘Spider Vein Sclerotherapy’ course and the ‘Basic Surgical Procedures for General Practitioners’ course.

So if you interested in Aesthetics I suggest you check it out, it's well worth it and seems to be getting better every year.
