Invitation to participate
The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia Inc. (CPSA) invite you to join them at what is undoubtedly the premier educational event for non-surgical aesthetics in Australasia. ASAPS and the CPSA take great pleasure welcoming you to Melbourne for the 2015 Non-Surgical Symposium, 4 to 7 June at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
” Master the basics to achieve excellence “
Once again the doors will be opened to all practitioners performing non-surgical rejuvenation. We will be welcoming plastic surgeons, cosmetic doctors, dermatologists, nurse aeshteticians and dermal therapists. The success of the past Symposia is due to a vital component which guaranteed it’s value and ongoing relevance: independent presentations by a long list of international and leading local presenters on state of the art concepts and practice in non-surgical rejuvenation. We will continue with this format.
In 2015 the program encompasses whole days on laser and skin care as well as a comprehensive program on neuromodulators, fillers and this year we will also examine the non-surgical body contouring realm. We will be combining educational lectures, live demonstrations and panel discussions with interactive debate. Additional workshops will run in the evenings and breakfast meetings in the morning.
On the day prior to the Symposium, Thursday June 4, ASAPS will run the Anatomy and Live Injecting Workshop (additional fees apply) at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons followed by the Symposium Welcome Cocktail Reception.
The workshop brings together the anatomical changes of ageing with the techniques we use to reverse the signs. Understanding the underlying anatomy clarifies the rationale behind current treatments. This is a truly unique educational experience and numbers for the Anatomy and Live Injecting Workshop will be strictly limited to maintain small groups with in-depth training and places have filled rapidly on previous occasions.
Lastly while science is our focus, lets not forget the social program of this meeting has reached legend status.
Don’t be disappointed. This year will be fresh, exciting and inspiring.
This event is not to be missed. . . . again.
