Invitation to participate

The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA), the Australasian Society of Cosmetic Dermatologists (ASCD), and the New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine (NZSCM) invite you to join them at what is undoubtedly the premier educational event for non-surgical aesthetics in Australasia – the 2017 Non-Surgical Symposium, 23 to 25 June at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

For the first time this year we are excited to welcome members of the ASCD as official partners of the meeting. This is a multidisciplinary field and to combine all of the key elements into the one symposium is what gives this meeting its vibrant feel and outstanding program.

The meeting continues to grow and both the 2015 NSS and 2016 NSS in Melbourne were sold out.

This year we move to the Gold Coast and our focus will be Safety and Science.

The doors will be opened to all medical practitioners performing non-surgical rejuvenation and their staff. We will be welcoming plastic surgeons, dermatologists, cosmetic doctors and other doctors performing medical aesthetic treatments. We will also welcome your staff as well including the nurse aestheticians, dermal therapists and practice staff.

The primary ingredient ensuring ongoing value and relevance is unchanged: independent presentations by a long list of international and leading local presenters on state of the art concepts and practice in the non-surgical rejuvenation sector.

The Non-Surgical Symposium will again cover the entire spectrum on appearance medicine, from injectables, through to skin care, including laser/light devices and non-surgical body contouring tools. A lot has happened in the last year to bring you up to speed on.

We have an extraordinary array of speakers many who haven’t been to Australian meeting previously. We are going to work hard to make our program interactive, focus on expert discussions. In 2016 we introduced video injecting (rather than live injecting), so that we can make the process more efficient with better images and a more interactive learning experience.

On the day prior to the Symposium, Thursday June 22, ASAPS will run the Anatomical Dissection and Live Injecting Workshop (additional fees apply).
There will be a lecture program on the anatomical changes of ageing and how this affects facial aesthetics and guides treatment selection. The workshop will have a combination of anatomical dissection and live injecting, and the program is modified each year according to feedback.
Introduced last year, we demonstrated retrobulbar injections in the anatomical dissections.
We will again use the keynote presenters from the Non-Surgical Symposium as guest faculty for the workshop in both the anatomy and injecting areas alongside our local experts. Visit for more information.

Science is our focus but let’s not forget the networking and the social program of the Non-Surgical Symposium. The Gala dinner will be more laid back than last years black tie gala but will retain all the bells, whistles, and glowing gloves that we have come to both love and expect.

2017 will be fresh, exciting and inspiring. 2015 & 2016 were sold out and spaces are limited once again in 2017, so register early to avoid disappointment.
