First Malaysia Singapore Conference for Aesthetic Medicine, July 2012

Here are some photos from the conference jointly organised by the Malaysian Society of Aesthetic Medicine, and the Society of Aesthetic Medicine (Singapore), recently held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Kudos to the organisers who put together a very illuminating and worthwhile event. Much knowledge was gleaned from experts from Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, France, Thailand and many other countries.

to strive for international excellence in line with the push for medical tourism.

A light-hearted moment as the minister is invited to examine some of the tools of the aesthetics trade

I was also honoured to have been invited to speak at this conference. This presentation
is on the Fraxel Re:store Dual, the latest platform in the fractional rejuvenation market

A very interesting talk by Assoc. Prof Chin Sze Piaw on the power of stem cells for
anti-aging and healing

One of the most popular exhibitors - Many attendees grabbed the chance to purchase some very rare  medical books

At the booth of one of the largest exhibitors, Allergan 

The crowd turnout was surprisingly good, given that this was the first such effort
from the organisers. Committee members are already planning for a bigger and better
bash in 2013. 

The good response to the conference pointed to the growing interest in the opportunities in the aesthetic market, and was an excellent chance for many up and coming new practitioners to learn the ropes from the old hands in the field. With technology and globalisation fuelling the growth of the aesthetic practice in Malaysia, we can foresee only positive changes ahead. The growing innovation and sophistication in the aesthetic and cosmetic market can only mean cheaper, more effective, pain-free and best of all, more aesthetic results for everyone.
