The Aestetic Show 2012 - Las Vegas
COZmedics are dedicated to ongoing professional development and Melissa Drury RN went to America to find out more about the latest procedures and techniques being used in cosmetic medicine internationally.
THE Aesthetic Show™ assembled the world's leading aesthetic practitioners and industry experts at the April 2012 Las Vegas event.
Doctors and RN’s from America and international locations were immersed in everything relevant to medical aesthetic business – from the latest anti-aging and aesthetic procedures to the rapidly advancing cosmeceutical skin care developments.
Melissa Drury RN meets celebrity & TV host on "The Doctors” Andrew Ordon and shares her favourite things from her amazing trip to Las Vegas
What a sight! Flying over the parched uninviting Nevada desert, to then see Las Vegas erupt out of the landscape was amazing. With buildings that seem to touch the sky and fluro lights flashing in every direction, this was a perfect venue to showcase the latest procedures, products and technologies utilized in the science of rejuvenation.
The most significant advances I saw were in body shaping - non invasive removal of fat using ultrasound and radiofrequency, Cold lasers, Laser caps - a home treatment for thinning hair, which fits in most sun and baseball hats and will create thicker, fuller hair in 60 days. Other advances were in Cosmeceuticals - skincare focusing on DNA repair, the "Vampire facelift" which uses hyaluronic acid fillers to revive the shape and fullness of skin and by using your own blood and platelet rich plasma repairs and strengthens skin.
I also had the opportunity to meet Dr Andrew Ordon on the red carpet referred to as "the governor of plastic surgery and surgeon to the stars" by Dr Phil, he also is a TV host on "The Doctors". Aesthetic TV made its debut at the conference; it was created in response to the publics increasing demand for information regarding aesthetic medicine. Clinics and their staff had the opportunity to learn skills and film a segment for TV.
So watch this space and COZ clinics for ongoing innovative treatments and solutions to keep you looking healthy and youthful on the inside and out.
