BCAM’s 2021 Virtual Annual Conference looks to the future post-Covid

The British College of Aesthetic Medicine’s 2021 Virtual Annual Conference focuses on the future of aesthetic medicine post-Covid with presentations from world-leading speakers, panel discussions and lunchtime wellbeing sessions.

MOVING ON: THE NEXT CHAPTER on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 September will offer delegates information, clinical guidance and advice about the future of aesthetic medicine post-Covid and is a chance to interact virtually with BCAM members plus aesthetic doctors and dentists from the global community.

Dr Catherine Fairris, BCAM Trustee for Education and Events, said: “We wanted to build on the success of last year’s virtual conference and provide our members and the wider aesthetic medicine community with a positive event that signposts the way forward for the sector as life returns to normal following the pandemic.

“We’ve put together a packed two days of lectures and panel discussions addressing some of the key issues for aesthetic medicine, including regulation, pioneering new treatments and complications surrounding Covid vaccinations. It promises to be an educational and captivating Conference!”

The event runs from 10am to 5pm on Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturday with four topic streams - skincare, fat reduction/muscle toning, skin tightening and injectable innovations. It will also feature lunchtime wellbeing sessions as part of BCAM’s 20th Anniversary Mindfulness and Wellbeing Initiative, which was launched to support members during the pandemic.

Lecture topics include transgender considerations in modern day aesthetic treatments, rejuvenation using RF in combination with skincare, data supporting pharmacological interventions in weight management, innovations in eye rejuvenation and treating pigmentation with efficacious skincare.

An eclectic array of speakers includes Dr Ahmed Al-Qahtani, Dr Nina Bal, Dr Ahmed El-Houisseny, Dr Elizabeth Hawkes, Dr Bhavjit Kaur, Mary Keltai, Dr Martyn King, Dr Selena Langdon, Dr Victoria Manning, Dr Kuldeep Minocha, Dr Beatriz Molina, Nigel Morgan, William Van Niekerk, Dr Sophie Shotter, Dr Judy Todd, Dr Andrew Winter, Dr Charlotte Woodward and Dr Vincent Wong.

BCAM President Dr Uliana Gout said: “We are so thrilled to be launching the second BCAM virtual conference after leading the way last year with our first virtual event. Having a record-breaking number of delegates register last year, we are excited to continue this journey for 2021.

"We are so grateful to our members for their constant support and we're proud to celebrate our 20th anniversary this year alongside our many new initiatives such as the newly-launched website, novel branding, virtual educational sessions and the BCAM 20th Anniversary Mindfulness and Wellbeing Initiative, which has supported members throughout the pandemic.

"We have embraced the virtual arena and connectivity with members and colleagues is crucial to BCAM, especially during Covid. We are all excited that BCAM is leading the way in Aesthetic Medicine."

Dawn Larcombe. BCAM Events Coordinator, was responsible for organising last year’s virtual conference and said BCAM led the way in the virtual events arena.

“Last year was a baptism of fire because we were the first association in our sector to hold a virtual event so we were really pioneering this new way of working. It was incredibly well received and delegates appreciated being able to watch the sessions either live or in their own time.

“This is something we’re doing again this year to make the sessions as flexible as possible because we appreciate how busy clinics are and how precious time is for clinicians. Once they have registered, delegates will be free to watch the sessions live as they happen or at their leisure for several weeks after the event,” she said.

Registration is via the BCAM Virtual Annual Conference website and is £99.50 for BCAM members and £125 for non-members. Please visit the website for full information including details of all speakers’ presentation and a programme of events across the two days.

BCAM is once again delighted to receive strong support for its annual conference, which is this year sponsored by Aesthetic Source, Allergan, Church Pharmacy, Galderma, Healthxchange, Inmode, Lynton Lasers, Novo Nordisk, Relife and Wigmore Medical.
