The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine has announced its fall Congress and Exposition in San Jose, CA on September 9-12, 2009.
It is a 4 day event and they have over 75 speakers slated for presentations together with workshops on In-Office procedures. Several focus areas include hormone replacement therapy, aesthetic venous treatments (spider vein treatments), detox and weight management, stem cell research updates, as well as fundamental and advanced topics on managing your “Anti-Aging” practice – medical, spa or medspa – a critical topic in today’s challenging economic environment.
They are currently accepting enrollment into the conference (http://www.worldhealth.net/) and it is not too late for reserving the best spots as exhibitors. If you are a manufacturer of anti-aging skin care products, equipment, cosmetic or plastic surgery aids, advertising, or other anti-aging systems, you want to make sure you are in attendance. Spa and med spa owners and managers as well as clinicians will be on-hand.
Here are some very interesting facts to know if you are in the industry or considering it:
