Posted on July 6, 2009 with No Comments

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:

Anti-aging medicine is a medical specialty founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related diseases. The aim of anti-aging medicine is to extend not only the human lifespan but also the quality of life and to limit the debilitating affects of aging.

The global anti-aging products market is projected to be worth $115 billion by 2010, growing at a compounded annual rate of 9.14% and the South American market presents remarkable growth opportunities. Douglas Emslie, Group Managing Director, Tarsus Group
