As Aesthetic Medical Practitioner enters its third year (where has the time gone?), we’d like to thank you for your support in helping to make it essential reading for health practitioners in the aesthetic medicine field.

We have quickly established a reputation for publishing topical, interesting and sometimes controversial articles relevant to this ever-changing field.

This issue is certainly no different. On page 58 we report on new research that links bacteria on breast implants to increased risk of anaplastic
large cell lymphoma (ALCL). We look at the steps recommended to help reduce this rare but deadly cancer and what you should be telling your patients.

The ever-blurring lines of advertising medical services are examined on page 30. Refresh your knowledge on the relevant laws and guidelines and learn about the recent amendment affecting social media.

We also ask the question: will dermal fillers continue to dominate non-surgical facial rejuvenation? Turn to page 68 to read what experts have to say and what’s new on the horizon.

In part one of our Global Festivals lifestyle feature (January-June) on page 132 we take you around the world, one month at a time – from Carnaval in Rio to the Film Festival in Cannes.

Plus, our Tesla feature on page 124 will also get you ‘torquing’ – the company’s recent releases and a 0 to 100km/h acceleration time of 2.64 seconds offer drivers a whole lot more than a reduced carbon footprint.

As always, we keep you up to date on the products, services and devices making waves in the industry (from p64), giving you detailed information to arm you with the latest tools, techniques and technologies for your practice.

This magazine is created especially for the aesthetic medical industry, so if there’s anything you’d like us to report on or want to share with your peers, email or call us on 02 9398 2755.

Thank you for your ongoing support!
