Welcome to the summer edition of CosBeauty Magazine. It’s been a turbulent three months, and if you turn the page of any newspaper today, you’ll almost certainly be faced with images of destruction from around the world. While avoidance isn’t going to solve any major global issues, in these difficult times it is especially important to embrace the sense of sanctuary Christmas affords us by making a conscious effort to acknowledge and connect with the good in our lives.Read More

Welcome to the spring 2017 issue of Aesthetic Medical Practitioner. In this issue we examine one of the biggest challenges facing individual doctors – and their families – burnout. Australian ENT surgeon Dr Eric Levi shines the spotlight on the increasing demand for the long hours, physical expectations, intellectual stamina and the emotional resilience required to be a surgeon in this must-read article.
The tragic death of the owner of a Sydney beauty salon has highlighted the need for more stringent quality control on all premises providing cosmetic medical procedures. Although a police investigation is being conducted, on page 24 we note both the accompanying media restorm and resultant position statements from the key stakeholder bodies in the industry.
On page 32 we discuss the ever-increasing prevalence of robotic technologies aiming to deliver surgery that is more e ective, less invasive and easier on both surgeons and patients. We also report on new research into drugs that could transform the way we approach ageing (p58), proving that slowing down the degenerative process of ageing may be closer than we think.
As well as examining the future of medicine, we look back into the past at the early years of ‘Big Pharma’ with Norman Ohler’s powerful book Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany. Ohler’s research reveals a ‘drug-addiction emblematic of the whole Nazi era.’ This book is both disturbing and enlightening and I am sure you will be amazed at the extent of drug dependence in the Third Reich (p120).
As always, from page 74 we report on the products, services and devices making waves in the industry, allowing you to consider all the latest technologies and techniques for your practice. With this in mind, our best practice articles from page 46 highlight the importance of sta hiring and retention as well as reveal the key marketing weapon you can’t a ord to overlook, producing powerful results for patient referral and retention.
Continuing education is a key component of a successful medical practice and we invite you to join us at Aesthetic Medical Practitioner’s inaugural COSMEDICON meeting from March 15-18, 2018 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Sydney’s Double Bay. Don’t miss this boutique meeting as our magazine virtually comes to life – be prepared for a world- class scienti c program, novel ways of learning about new technologies and some must-attend social activities. Whether you’re an experienced aesthetic practitioner or new to the industry, this meeting will change the way you do business and give you invaluable tools you can implement immediately.

Welcome to our spring edition. If you’re after the tricks and tools to have you looking your best for summer, you’ve come to the right place. On page 42 we take a look at the exciting non-surgical treatment to blast away unwanted fat, and our 12-page guide to breast augmentation is essential reading for anyone considering breast enhancement (page 52).
We also bring you the latest anti-ageing treatments and skincare innovations (from page 66) that promise to help you turn back the clock – from thread lifting and cosmetic injectables to the heavyweights of skincare, there’s never been a better time to invest in your appearance. And these aren’t just for the ladies – there’s also an interesting article on the rise and rise of skin solutions for men on page 78. While the vast majority, or 80 percent, of men already use grooming products, you may be surprised to know that it’s one of the fastest-growing segments in facial skincare.*
There’s good news for acne sufferers, too. On page 32 we investigate a new acne vaccine in the works that could spell the demise of this hard-to-treat skin disorder that affects a whopping 85 percent of us at some stage of our lives.
Another area receiving a lot of media coverage at the moment is gut health and, while its importance has been known for a long time, it’s become a real buzzword lately. But with so much information ying around, it can be easy to be bamboozled. Our article on page 38 will get you started with the basics to keep your gut healthy.
The hyper-real nish our favourite Snapchat effects give our skin are often so good that it means we’re constantly on the hunt for products that can do the same thing in real life. Take a look at our guide on page 104 for a killer range of products that will have you taking those lter effects into the real world.

Welcome to our 10th issue of Aesthetic Medical Practitioner. We can’t believe we’ve hit the double digits as it seems like only yesterday we were working on the first edition. In this issue we continue to bring you information you can utilise daily in your practice as well as topical and hardhitting articles on the current trends and issues in aesthetics.
While the industry continues to grow and techniques are constantly evolving, safety remains paramount and it’s as important now more than ever to keep abreast of new issues and possible risks.
We examine one of the fastest growing aesthetic procedures, the Brazilian butt lift, and take an in-depth look into the potential risks involved, including the ASERF Task Force recommendations to increase safety (page 30).
On page 50 we give you the latest updates on BIAALCL and a review of the joint Task Force findings. We also shine the spotlight on the risks of highlighting these research findings in the mainstream media (page 55). With this in mind, we can only note with pride the high quality and standards relating to cosmetic medical and surgical procedures upheld by our Australian surgeons, specifically in relation to patient safety.
AMP is not all business – turn to page 128 for part two of our Global Festivals lifestyle feature (July-December) – we have your bucket list sorted! Plus, on page 134 we talk Wimbledon 2017 and take a look at the next generation of prospective contenders in the world of professional tennis.
As usual, we keep you up to date on the products, services and devices in the industry (from page 66), giving you detailed information to arm you with the latest tools for your practice.

It’s already that time of the year again when it’s getting darker and colder by the day. And this is the time most of us find it difficult to stick to those healthy eating and exercise regimes we put in place after the holiday blowout. Well, no need to be swayed from your goals because even though reaching for your favourite foods may soothe your winter blues, we’ll show you how to reclaim your energy, the healthy way, in our article on page 84.
It’s also that season when our skin is crying out for moisture. On page 76 we kick off our winter beauty school session with some go-to skin solutions for a healthy, hydrated and glowing complexion this winter – no filter needed!
Almost everyone is guilty of being over-enthusiastic with their Instagram posts, but while it’s fun to create a picturesque online presence, there’s no denying that the perception of the ‘perfect’ life online can cause us to be swept up into a spiral of fake reality. So maybe it’s time to stop and smell the roses and take a look at the truth behind Instagram in our article, ‘A filtered life’ (page 28).
There’s no doubt that social media platforms have influenced the everincreasing popularity of cosmetic procedures. If your newsfeed is anything like mine, it’s full of beautiful big lips and sleek, contoured bodies. So turn to page 48 and hazard a guess at which procedures are hot (or not) in our cosmetic surgery trends feature. While there are some old favourites there are some surprising new entries on the list.
As always, our beauty pages are packed full of tried and tested products and lots of new and shiny makeup must-haves. Whether you stick to the basics or aren’t afraid of experimenting, we take a look at the top makeup personalities to take you from day to night (page 20). We also showcase some of the latest fragrances to hit the shelves and take a lesson in the art of perfumery. To top (knot) it off, on page 100 we bring you the tips and tools for this season’s new head-turning hairstyle and you’ll be surprised what’s making a comeback!

There’s so much change and unrest in the world, sometimes it’s important to distance ourselves from all the negativity and focus on feeling good about ourselves. Don’t feel guilty about needing a timeout, as the way we project ourselves can positively affect all those we meet and interact with.Read More
Well, it’s hard to believe the year has sped past and we are already making plans for 2017. It’s been a busy 12 months and, on reflection, the markers this year in the aesthetic industry include an increase in the popularity of non-surgical body contouring devices, vaginal rejuvenation, stem cell treatments and fat grafting. Plus, in Australia, the new industry guidelines brought changes to cooling-off periods, post-operative care and people under 18 seeking surgeries.Read More
