Session Descriptions & Times

Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD FACS - Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Medical Director of the Aesthetic Associates Centre for Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin Care

Sunday, 10:30am - 11:30am

Illuminating Medical Esthetics - Shining a Light on Low-level Light Therapy - 
Presentation with Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD FACS

Most everyone knows that light therapy, using deeply penetrating red wavelengths, can activate fibroblasts, increasing collagen and elastin production to effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles.  But did you know that low-level light therapy utilizing light emitting diodes (LEDs) is based on NASA research, and has been proven to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, and increase micro-circulation from the surface of the skin to 25mm below? Relaxing and versatile, light therapy (LEDs) can be used as a stand-alone, or as an adjunctive treatment, following most medical aesthetic procedures to enhance outcomes and decrease downtime. During this presentation, Samuel Shatkin will help you to gain an understanding of the science and technology related to LED technology and how to successfully integrate light therapy into your medical aesthetic practice.

- CIDESCO International PR Committee and founder of the Spa Academy LIFEXCELLENCE® - Italy

Sunday, 1:30pm - 2:20pm

Cosmetics and Rituals: Welcome to the Future - 
Presentation with Andrea Bovero, PhD

Scientists talk about neuro-immune-cutaneous-system (NICS), a new vision of the brain-skin connection that is changing the concept of cosmetics. Therefore, today’s beauty & wellness treatments must include not only the choice of products and the application methods, but also the consumer’s sensorial and emotional feelings.

Learn how beauty, wellness and regeneration can guide a client’s experience based on perfumes, flavours and sounds that bind people tightly to the environment and make them feel unique. Knowing the benefits of healthy nutrition, movement, massage and products will establish your practice as on the cutting edge of NICS.

Estheticians know breaking the skin barrier provides the same risk factor regardless of the tool or method. It is the esthetician’s responsibility to ensure the end result for the client is considered good practice. Jens Bergström will explain and point out where he sees the most problems, and how with small measurements estheticians can better themselves through knowledge and education.

Cynthia Malcolm - CIDESCO Diplomate and Owner of Edgar Renee Education

Monday, 1:00pm - 1:50pm

Incorporating Viennese Massage to Heal the Skin – Presentation and Demo with Cynthia Malcolm

At one time High Frequency Treatments were considered a staple for skin revitalizing treatments by estheticians. Today there are few spas or clinics that offer these treatments to clients.

Instead, consider enlisting the help of a Viennese massage, a treatment that aids in increased blood circulation, activates sebaceous glands which produce sebum/oil on the skin, and can improve skin texture because it aids in loosening of intercellular cement that aids in desquamation. Learn about this effective treatment to address many skin issues. It is also a relaxing treatment that has a light, enjoyably sedative effect on the client.
