I recently attended the 10th National Laser and Cosmetic Medicine Conference (LCMC 2014) held in Melbourne from 14 – 15 November 2014. It was a fantastic opportunity to listen to and meet with some wonderful cosmetic practitioners and industry experts.
The main focus of the conference for 2014 was the latest cosmetic procedures and trends, the newest fractional lasers on the market and gaining in popularity, radio-frequency treatment which is preferred by some over laser, as well as various discussions and product demonstrations from renowned Australian and international dermatologists.
The conference also gave a real insight into what research is going into the body’s ability to regenerate and repair itself and how cosmetic treatments can take advantage of this. The speaker Ben Herbert highlighted this in his talk about stem cell therapy titled, “Fat – From Liposuction leftover to regeneration superstore” where he discussed how there were ways we might potentially be able to “stop the ageing clock”!
The conference showed once again how cosmetic treatments are only growing in popularity amongst the masses. Technological innovations are creating an industry where new products are being released all the time, to the point where it is often hard to keep up with it all, especially in today’s age of social media and the internet. The best part of the LCMC 2014 is that you get an insight into treatments, devices and products at the forefront of the industry.
We certainly had an absolute ball at LCMC 2014, and it was absolutely fantastic to connect with others so involved and invested in the world of cosmetic treatments and procedures. Stay tuned for upcoming videos and interviews with some of the amazing speakers, such as Dr Adrian Lim – a dermatologist with some terrific hints on how to wade through the world of cosmetic devices and which one is right for you.
DC Conferences and The Sofitel on Collins in Melbourne really put on a terrific conference and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the speakers, demonstrators and industry heavyweights I was lucky enough to spend time with and listen to. My brain is overloaded; I learnt a lot and can’t wait to come back next year!
