Welcome

Amanda Cameron Editor, Aesthetics journal

Hello and welcome to our special Aesthetics Awards 2016 supplement, in which we will celebrate the Winners, Highly Commended and Commended finalists who were recognised at the prestigious ceremony at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel on December 3. Huge thanks must go to everyone who took part; we were absolutely delighted to see so many smiling faces on the evening and hope you all had a wonderful time. It is an honour to play a part in acknowledging the hard work, time and commitment that is put into aesthetics by everyone each year – it is fantastic to see so many people dedicated to making our specialty a safe and successful one. The glamorous event was even bigger and better than last year, with more than 625 guests in attendance and the hilarious comedian Hal Cruttenden hosting the ceremony, while sharing his unique take on the aesthetics industry! A special mention must go to Dr John Curran, who took home The Schuco International Award for Special Achievement, which recognises the outstanding effort of an individual working within medical aesthetics. John began his journey as a successful GP in Northern Ireland, before embarking on a career within aesthetics, becoming a founding member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine and serving time as president as well as chair of its ethics committee. He has worked tirelessly to promote excellence and safety within the industry so it was an absolute honour to celebrate his achievements with this award. Thank you very much to our sponsors, without whom the Aesthetics Awards wouldn’t be the amazing evening that it is. Many thanks must also go to our panel of more than 50 judges, who kindly gave up their time to carefully assess and score all entries. With such a high standard of entries this year, the bar was raised even higher than before so well done to all that made it to the finalist stage, as well, of course, to those who were Commended and Highly Commended. Huge congratulations to our worthy Winners on your triumph, we wish everyone continued success in 2017!

Charity Partner For the second year running, the Aesthetics Awards has supported Operation Smile. The international medical charity is one of the largest volunteer-based medical charities providing free, safe and effective reconstructive surgery for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. As well as running more than 150 international surgical programmes a year, Operation Smile has established year-round cleft treatment centres and provides local healthcare workers with medical equipment, supplies, education and training. Thanks to your generosity, almost

£4,000 was raised during the ceremony, all of which will be donated to Operation Smile. Sarah Kosciukiewicz, the business development officer at Operation Smile, said, “Thank you to everyone for your generous donations; together you have helped give 26 children in developing countries the gift of a smile. We’re thrilled to have the continued support of the Aesthetics Awards and that we share the belief that every child living with cleft conditions deserves access to safe surgery.” You can continue to donate to the charity by visiting www.operationsmile.org.uk


The evening More than 625 guests gathered at The Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel to celebrate another successful year in medical aesthetics at the Aesthetics Awards on December 3 2016. The glamorous event brought together clinical practitioners, front-ofhouse teams, associations, manufacturers, suppliers and distributors for an evening of entertainment and celebration, recognising Commended and Highly Commended finalists, as well as the Winners in 24 prestigious categories. Guests were invited to network with colleagues and friends at the pre-dinner drinks reception, before moving to the ballroom for a delectable three-course meal and comedy set presented by stand-up comedian and host for the evening, Hal Cruttenden. Amanda Cameron, the editor of Aesthetics, opened the ceremony with a welcome speech that thanked guests for their participation and continued support of the Aesthetics Awards, before Cruttenden and compère, Jon Briggs, who is best known as the original voice of Apple’s iPhone assistant Siri, then began the ceremony. The first winner of the evening was Heliocare® from AesthetiCare, which won Best Cosmeceutical/Product Range of the Year. This was followed by awards for injectable, treatment and treatment partner of the year, before Profhilo® from HA Derma and IBSA was recognised with The Barry Knapp Award for Product Innovation of the Year, supported by Oxygenetix. Clinics in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, South England, North England and London were all recognised for their dedication to patient care and commitment to safe practice, as well as ASKINOLOGY, based in the City of London, which won the 3D-lipo Award for Best New Clinic UK & Ireland. Medical director of ASKINOLOGY, Dr Askari Townshend said, “I am very happy. I think to be pitted against your peers and to be judged by somebody in the industry, who is the most experienced, is a really precious accolade.” Reception teams, equipment suppliers, distributors, customer service, sales representatives and associations were also all recognised, as well as clinic groups with 3 clinics or more and those with 10 or more. The winner of The Dermalux Award for Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year was Mr Dalvi Humzah, who also won The Enhance Insurance Award for Training Initiative of the Year for the Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Clinical Training Courses. Also recognised on the night was independent nurse prescriber and clinic owner Frances Turner Traill who won the Institute Hyalual Award for Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner of the Year, as well as being Commended in the Best Clinic Scotland category. The spectacular ceremony concluded with the presentation of The Schuco International Award for Special Achievement. CEO of Schuco International Paul Huttrer presented the trophy to Dr John Curran. Dr Curran was celebrated for his tireless work to promote best practice in the industry, always putting patients first and his efforts to push aesthetic standards forward. Huttrer said in his speech about Dr Curran’s dedication to aesthetics; “Often the voice of reason, John is a fantastic ambassador for the industry, and a great representation of outstanding achievements that can be reached through hard work and dedication, as shown by his work for over two decades.” Speaking of the evening as a whole, aesthetic practitioner Dr Benji Dhillon commented, “I think this is the number one event to go to in the Awards calendar so it’s something we couldn’t miss. The Aesthetics Awards are important for the industry because they really raise the bar of what we’re trying to do. At the end of the day, that’s better for us as an industry, better for our patients and better for a lot of the services we provide.” The Aesthetics Awards 2017 will take place on December 2 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel.

T H E S T E R IM EDI X AWA R D F O R IN JEC TA B LE P R O DU C T O F TH E Y EAR WINNER: TEOSYAL® RHA (Teoxane UK)

This category is sponsored by

“As a UK manufacturer, we believe it is important for us to support our home market” Richard Walker, sponsor TEOSYAL® RHA was the Winner of the The Sterimedix Award for Injectable Product of the Year at the Aesthetics Awards. Texoane Laboratories claims that the excellent results seen with the product are due to TEOSYAL’s innovative manufacturing process, which aims to allow the HA gels to better preserve their natural length and arrange themselves into a 3D, dynamic network. Sandra Fishlock, managing director of Teoxane UK, said, “We’re pleased and excited, it’s a brilliant product, it’s done really well this year and we’ve seen huge growth so we’re really delighted.” Comments from voters included, ‘I use this regularly in my clinic and love the results’, as well as ‘brilliant range, very versatile’. Fishlock added, “We decided to enter the Awards as we feel they are a really good thing for the industry and it’s nice to be recognised. Whenever you have a great product it’s really good to be voted for by your peers.” Richard Walker, head of sales and marketing at Sterimedix, the sponsor of Injectable Product of the Year, said, “We have sponsored the Injectable of The Year Award for the last two years because our product is inextricably tied to the use of injectables. We have to work closely with filler manufacturers to ensure we provide suitable delivery devices to optimise the performance of their products and, as a UK manufacturer, we believe it is important for us to support our home market.” He continued, “The advances being made in the industry are significant and there is no doubt that Teoxane is pushing the envelope, along with many other companies. We are delighted that their work was recognised. The ongoing enhancement of what we all do in the eyes of the wider public is important, and tonight we have celebrated products and people who are doing just that.”

We are hugely appreciative, grateful and proud.” Taylor also noted how taking part in the Awards has helped grow the company, explaining, “We put a lot of hard work and effort into what we do – just actually entering the Aesthetics Awards takes a lot of time and effort but I think if you’re very serious about doing it, the Awards gives a lot of credibility. It’s helped us not only in the UK, but internationally as well in terms of recognition, growing our brand, and the support – people say they have come to us just because we’ve been Treatment of the Year.” She added, “We’re very supportive of the Treatment of the Year Award in terms of how it’s actually judged, it’s very fair with the combination of judging and votes. For those who’ve never entered before, I would say, even just to get the recognition in terms of being a finalist would be a fantastic achievement.” HIGHLY COMMENDED: ULTRAcel (Healthxchange Pharmacy)

Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on low frequency

ultrasound. The Ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure

to fat cell membranes. A fat cell membrane cannot withstand this

pressure and therefore disintegrates into a liquid state. The result is natural, permanent fat loss.

the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over the course of several months.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Focus Fractional RF is the 3rd generation of RF technology. It utilises three or more pole/electrodes to deliver the RF energy under the skin. This energy is controlled and limited to the treatment area. Key advantages of this technology are high treatment efficacy, no pain as less energy is required, shorter treatment services and variable depths of penetration.

3D Dermology Combines pulsed variable vacuum and skin rolling for the effective treatment of cellulite.

The first clinic award of the night went to ASKINOLOGY, which first opened its doors in July 2015. Run by clinical director Dr Askari Townshend, the clinic is described as ‘the further information or a demonstration coming together of advanced beauty and medical aesthetics – a cosmeceutical boutique’. For call: 01788 550 440 The clinic is situated in the City of London and provides treatments to more than 1,250 patients. Roy Cowley, managing director of 3D-lipo, the sponsor of the Award, said, “We sponsored the Best New Clinic UK and Ireland again this year because we think that it is important to recognise the hard work that new clinics put in to achieving excellence in our industry. We were delighted to present this award to Dr Askari Townshend and his team from ASKINOLOGY as this clinic represents what should be achieved, which is commitment to patient care and safety and customer service. We congratulate Dr Askari Townshend and his team on behalf of everyone at 3D-lipo Ltd.” Dr Townshend was delighted with the win and said, “It is lovely to have the team here tonight and share in the excitement. It has been hard work for the last 18 months but it has finally paid off.” He continued, “When we didn’t see our names in the Commended list, we wondered if we were going to get anything at all, so we felt a bit nervous, but I am very happy. It really has been a lot of hard work, especially from the team, and so I think this is for all of us.” Before

Advertorial SkinCeuticals

SkinCeuticals – The Perfect Partner for Your Aesthetic Practice Great aesthetic results rely on sophisticated combinations of treatments and advanced skincare. Here, Linda Blahr - SkinCeuticals’ Education & Science Manager - introduces one of their core protocols and how it can complement and enhance your practice. The SkinCeuticals philosophy is about achieving the best possible patient results by combining stateof-the-art clinical protocols, professional treatments and advanced homecare. Our integrated skincare programme is built around clinical procedures, intended for use both before, during and after

IN DEPTH: SkinCeuticals Microneedling Protocol This treatment is designed to complement in-clinic microneedling therapies, and is customizable according to the treatment objective. Due to the skin-sensitizing nature of these treatments, this treatment should be performed at the practitioner’s discretion only. Step 1: CLEANSE SkinCeuticals Product: SIMPLY CLEAN Cleanse skin thoroughly using one pump of cleanser. Remove gently with warm water. Step 2: DEGREASE Saturate two 4x4 rough gauze pads with degreasing solution (alcohol or medical acetone) and degrease the entire face. Applying firm pressure, degrease the skin beginning at the forehead and work down to the chin. Ensure skin is dry before initiating the microneedling treatment. Step 3: TREAT SkinCeuticals Product: HYDRATING B5 Starting with the forehead, apply 2-3 drops of Hydrating B5, then microneedle the area. More drops can be applied if needed to

KEY BENEFITS: • By combining Hydrating B5 during the microneedling process, the hyaluronic acid will be introduced through the skin barrier where it can instantly work to improve hydration, elasticity and firmness • Immediate post-procedure application of

in-clinic treatments to help maintain and complement results. In recent years, microneedling has enjoyed a surge in popularity and is now one of the most popular aesthetic treatments on the market. However, aside from fears of a painful procedure - the top patient concerns revolve around the after-effects: will there be redness, bruising or swelling? How quickly can I return to work or social engagement? How long is the downtime? These are major considerations which can block patients from making a treatment decision, but you can help them overcome this by using an integrated protocol of SkinCeuticals products before, during and after the procedure to maximise the efficacy and minimise those unwanted side-effects.

provide additional slip and glide. Move to the cheek and apply 2-3 drops of Hydrating B5, then start the microneedling process. Continue with the chin, followed by the nose, and then the other cheek, each time applying 2-3 drops of Hydrating B5 before starting the needling process. Step 4: REMOVE Gently remove blood with antiseptic. Alternatively, to gently remove the pin point bleeding after the microneedling, apply Hydrating B5 Masque for 2 minutes and remove it with soft gauzes afterwards. In addition, this unique gel masque will cool & moisturise the treated areas and support a comfortable skin sensation after the needling. Step 5: PREVENT SkinCeuticals Product: C E FERULIC® Apply 3-5 drops to the treated area. Step 6: SOOTHE SkinCeuticals Product: Phyto Corrective Apply 3-5 drops to the face, neck, and chest. Step 7: PROTECT SkinCeuticals Product: Mineral Radiance UV Defense SPF50 or Mineral Matte UV Defense SPF30. Apply liberally to face, neck, and chest.

The association received high praise from both Aesthetics journal readers and this category’s judging panel; being described as an ‘amazing association, dedicated to its members and the safety of the public’. Chair of the association, Sharon Bennett, said, “At the BACN we work really hard and sometimes what we do may be unrecognised, because there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that is not seen by the aesthetics industry. So, for us, this year has been amazing and winning this Aesthetics Award just shows that there is recognition there, which is wonderful.” Having seen a huge growth in membership and activities over the last 12 months, the group of nurses has emerged as a leading voice in the sector in the debate over regulation and education. Eddie Hooker, CEO of Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance, the sponsor of Association/Industry Body of the Year Award, said, “The nurses have been in the industry and the backbone of the cosmetic world ever since it began – the BACN is an amazing association and they’ve all worked tirelessly, reinventing themselves over the last couple of years as well.” He added, “Winning an award and getting recognition raises the profile of the industry, which is really important as there’s a lot of negative press about the aesthetic world and the papers only pick up on what goes wrong. The Aesthetics Awards shows you how much actually goes right and what people are doing to help patients look and feel better.”

THE S C H UCO IN T ER N AT I O N A L AWA R D F O R S PEC IA L AC H I EV EM EN T WINNER: Dr John Curran

This category is sponsored by

“It’s been a fabulous ride, it’s so amazing to be given recognition for something I didn’t expect” Dr John Curran, winner Dr John Curran, the medical director and founder of Aesthetic Skin Clinics, as well as the founder of a medical aesthetics distributor, was awarded The Schuco International Award for Special Achievement. The Award recognises the exceptional achievements of one person within the industry – highlighting their outstanding commitment to education, best practice and excellence within the medical aesthetic profession. Dr Curran was chosen as the recipient for this prestigious award due to his continued efforts to improve standards and push the industry forward throughout his 20-year aesthetic career. Starting work as a GP in his native Northern Ireland more than 30 years ago, Dr Curran then moved to aesthetic practise, where he became a founding member of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine, serving time as president as well as chair of their ethics committee. He went on to found Healthxchange Pharmacy and Healthxchange Academy, while at the same time running his chain of clinics based in Guernsey, Jersey and Belfast. Dr Curran is also often called upon as an expert witness by the General Medical Council, as well as providing advice and support to colleagues and peers when needed. Following the ceremony Dr Curran said, “Winning the award for Special Achievement makes me feel humbled, I’ve had so much help over the years – from people at the beginning who mentored me and taught me, colleagues who’ve supported me, nurses, doctors, everyone within the industry – it’s been a fabulous ride, it’s so amazing to be given recognition for something I didn’t expect. It’s recognition from colleagues and friends, and people working within the industry, so it’s very special to me.” CEO of Schuco International, the sponsor of the Award, Paul Huttrer, said, “We recognise the hard work, the dedication and the talent that goes in to making a difference and really leaving a legacy. We jumped at the chance to sponsor this very prestigious award as we feel like the values are very aligned to those we have at Schuco and the category really draws on what we do in achieving amazing things.”
