Message from the President
Dear Fellows, Members and Colleagues,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy return from school holidays and trust the first quarter of the year you are reaching professional goals and revisiting & evaluating how you will achieve above and beyond.
A pragmatic approach to beauty should be a focus for 2016. There is no shortage of high-tech devices to reduce fat, tighten skin and diminish cellulite.

Two powerful demographic trends are emerging, feminine rejuvenation and male aesthetic treatments. Injectibles are the main requested treatments for women, however depending on age, feminine rejuvenation is fast becoming an area of interest. Hair loss and body shaping are most common reasons for men to visit a cosmetic physician, comfortably, with minimal concern for negative judgment.
