2017 AWARDS SUPPLEMENT
2 N D D ECE M B ER , PA R K P L A Z A W E S T M I N S T ER B R I D G E
WELCOME Well, what another fantastic year in medical aesthetics! It was truly wonderful to see so many happy faces catching up with friends and colleagues, while celebrating a year’s worth of achievements at the Aesthetics Awards on December 2. As always, we came together for a memorable evening of rewarding the highest standards in clinical excellence, product innovation, practice achievement and company support, as well as first-class entertainment and, of course, a spot of dancing! Congratulations to our Winners, as well those Highly Commended and Commended, and all who made it to the Finalist stage, which, given the extremely high standard of entries, is a huge achievement in itself. I must give a special mention to the Winner of The Schuco Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Aesthetics. I first met Dr Elizabeth Raymond Brown in the early 90s when we were both speaking at a training session in Nottingham. Her vast knowledge and ease of delivery endeared her to the audience immediately. To this day, she remains humble and, I believe, unaware of the true impact her educational skills have brought to our specialty. To read more about her outstanding achievements, turn to p.55.
AMANDA CAMERON EDITOR, AESTHETICS JOURNAL
Many thanks must go to our panel of more than 60 judges, whose precious time spent carefully assessing each Finalist ensures the integrity and impartiality of the Aesthetics Awards is consistently upheld. Also thanks to all of you who voted – it is wonderful to see everyone in the specialty getting behind each other to acknowledge the valuable work and support that is provided by so many. Finally, huge thanks must go to our sponsors, without whom the Aesthetics Awards simply cannot take place. On behalf of the Aesthetics team, we hope you enjoy reading this special Awards supplement and have another a successful year in this remarkable specialty!
CHARITY PARTNER Healthxchange, sponsor of Sales Representative of the Year, put forward The Tumaini Fund as Charity Partner for the Aesthetics Awards 2017. Since its formation in 2003, the charity has supported thousands of AIDS orphans and widows in Kagera, north-west Tanzania. The Tumaini Fund also rebuilds derelict houses, has installed 80 clean water-points throughout Kagera, and completed the re-build of a primary school in 2017. Chairman of the Tumaini Fund Dr Susan Wilson, MBE, spoke at the Aesthetics Awards and asked for support in raising funds to go towards the completion of a Dispensary and Cottage Hospital that will provide healthcare for tens of thousands of people who have no access to medical assistance. She explained that the facility will be used for local AIDS testing and treatment. In total, £3,000 was raised at the Aesthetics Awards. Dr Wilson said, “Thank you so much for the funds raised which, within the
next couple of months, will go towards beginning work on the Dispensary. The funds will help us to save children’s lives who, at this time, have no access to medical care. Huge thanks to Dr John Curran and his wonderful Healthxchange team for their unstinting support of our work.” To continue to donate to the charity, visit www.tumainifund.org. uk or visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/healthxchange where group chairmen of Healthxchange and Dr Robbie Hannah will match all donations £1 for £1 until the £15,000 target is reached.
THE EVENING With more than 800 guests and tickets selling out weeks before the night, the Aesthetics Awards 2017 was truly the biggest and best ceremony yet! Professionals from across the specialty met at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in central London, for drinks and networking, before moving to the glamorous ballroom for a delicious three-course dinner. Amanda Cameron, Editor of Aesthetics, then welcomed guests to the ceremony, thanking the sponsors, judges and voters for their support. International comedian Stewart Francis was the host for the night, while the original voice of Apple’s iPhone assistant Siri, Jon Briggs, provided the commentary. Commended and Highly Commended finalists were applauded for their achievements, while Winners in the 26 prestigious categories were welcomed to the stage to collect their unique ‘A’ trophies. The first Winner of the night was NeoStrata from distributor AestheticSource, which won Cosmeceutical Range / Skin Treatment of the Year. Another winning product from AestheticSource was Clinisept+, which won The Barry Knapp Award for Product Innovation of the Year. Product winners also included Belotero® from Merz Aesthetics for The Harley Academy Award for Injectable Product of the Year and Dermalux LED which won its fifth Aesthetics Award, this time for Energy Treatment of the Year. In the clinic group categories, La Belle Forme was presented with The Profhilo Award for Best Clinic Group, UK & Ireland (3 clinics or more), while The Private Clinic was celebrated with The Alumier Labs Award for Best Clinic Group, UK & Ireland (10 clinics or more). Aesthetic companies were also recognised for their achievements, with Lumenis, Lynton, Med-fx and Healthxchange each picking up Awards. Deirdre MacMahon, who works for Merz Aesthetics supporting its Irish clients, was the Winner of the Healthxchange Award for Sales Representative of the Year, while Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training was recognised at the ceremony, winning the Enhance Insurance Award for Independent Training of the Year. Clinics in Ireland, Scotland, South England, North England, London and a combined category of Midlands & Wales were celebrated for their commitment to excellence in customer service, care, safety and evidence of good feedback from patients. Winners in each of the respective regions included Ailesbury Clinic, Clinetix, S-Thetics, Discover Laser, The Cadogan Clinic and Cellite Clinic, while Temple Medical won the Consentz Award for Clinic Reception Team of the Year. The establishment of new clinics is a vital aspect
of the progression and development of the aesthetic specialty. The 2017 category for The AestheticSource Award for Best New Clinic, UK & Ireland included eight extremely worthy finalists, however it was Emma Chan Ltd that won the trophy. Founder and director, nurse prescriber, Emma Chan said, “It feels great to win and have the team recognised for all of their hard work. They put 100% into everything they do and provide 100% patient satisfaction, so we are absolutely thrilled.” In a first for 2017, a new category recognised noteworthy support partners, which included finalists such as insurance companies, PR agencies and digital providers. However, it was patient enquiry service Aesthetic Response that took home The e-MASTR Award for Support Partner of the Year. The PHI Clinic Award for Professional Initiative of the Year was another new category, which had finalists from across the specialty that played an important role in promoting consumer education and patient safety. The Aesthetic Complications Expert Group was presented with the trophy thanks to its work creating consensus guidelines for practitioners on complication management and helpful documentation for the public on aesthetic procedures and the risk of complications. Two of the most respected awards of the night were The Institute Hyalual Award for Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner of the Year and The SkinCeuticals Award for Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year. The deserving Winners were Anna Baker and Dr Beatriz Molina, respectively. Both were praised for their commitment to continued education and improving the specialty as a whole, alongside running successful clinics. To conclude the spectacular ceremony, The Schuco Award for Outstanding Achievement was presented to Dr Elizabeth Raymond Brown. A laser specialist with more than 30 years spent dedicated to enhancing education through her teaching, speaking and writing commitments, Dr Raymond Brown received a standing ovation from the audience who toasted her success and celebrated her distinguished career in medical aesthetics. After the presentation of the Awards, a live band and DJ got guests dancing until the early hours in a fantastic end to a truly memorable evening. Dr Tapan Patel, a Winner in previous years and category sponsor for two awards in 2017, concluded, “Events like the Aesthetics Awards are so special because they celebrate the hard work everyone puts in over the years. It’s a fabulous surrounding being able to network with friends and colleagues, and takes place at the right time of year when everyone is in festive spirits.”

The first Award of the evening was Cosmeceutical Range / Skin Treatment of the Year, with NeoStrata taking the trophy. According to the entry, clinical skincare brand NeoStrata is heavily invested in research and development, launching new technologies and new products every year. The UK distributor for NeoStrata, AestheticSource, explained that for each individual ingredient incorporated in the products, in vitro studies are performed, followed by in vivo studies, penetration studies, final formulation studies – product vs. vehicle assessments, skin biopsies, silicone replicas, and ultrasound scans to measure skin density. The company’s effort in accumulating clinical data was acknowledged by the judges, with one commenting, ‘NeoStrata is a tried and true cosmeceutical range that is well formulated and has good scientific data’. After the win, director of AestheticSource, Lorna Bowes, said, “I can hardly speak! It’s so amazing – we have worked so hard this year and the competition is so strong. It’s just brilliant to have the support from our clients and judges.” She added, “The Awards are important to enter because it’s important to have proper measures to determine what works and what doesn’t. The balance between part judging and part voting for this category just shows that both the judges and our customers love what we do and our focus on science.”

It’s great that our clients have voted for us and that we have been recognised. We are the oldest manufacturer in the industry, so it’s nice.” Campbell-Adams added, “We love the Aesthetics Awards because it’s nice to network with our customers and with other people in the industry and it’s really good to meet new people. It’s good that the Awards recognise all the different aspects in the specialty such as the different manufacturers and clinics – it’s also a great event leading up to Christmas.”

FINALISTS: • ABC Lasers • Lipoelastic LTD. • Venus Concept UK
Our Chemical Peel Philosophy Many compounds hydrolase, denature, degrade or become inactive at the very low pH of a chemical peel. This is dependent on the chemistry of the compound and the effect that a low pH has on the structure of the active molecules. There are not many compounds that survive and remain active at pH 3. As an example, MatrixylTM synthe 6TM, like most other peptides has a great chance of being hydrolysed, not only at the palmitoyl site (fatty peptide linkage) but all the way to individual amino acids. This would make the ingredient less functional in the skin. AlumierMD peels use only pure acids. The antioxidants, anti-ageing and brightening booster ingredients are applied post-peel in our Brightening Accelerator so all components remain effective. Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel.

“If I have helped in any way to raise standards and the importance of training and education, then that’s a fantastic thing” Dr Elizabeth Raymond Brown, who has spent the last 30 years developing protocols and teaching practitioners how to deliver the safest, most effective laser and lightbased treatments, was presented with The Schuco Award for Outstanding Achievement in Aesthetics.
Dr Elizabeth Raymond Brown, Winner
The Award recognises the outstanding achievements and significant contribution made to the aesthetic profession – highlighting remarkable commitment to education, best practice and excellence within the medical aesthetic profession. Dr Raymond Brown, who has a PhD in Laser Science, began her career in laser education in the mid 1980s as a lecturer in laser safety at The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Loughborough University, where she authored the original BTEC qualifications in medical and industrial laser and light-based therapy applications. Since then, she has published numerous scientific papers and articles on laser safety, technical and educational training manuals for several laser distributors and suppliers, and comprehensive materials and courses for the safe administration of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Following the ceremony, Dr Raymond Brown said, “I am overwhelmed to win this award! I had no idea this was coming, it’s a fantastic honour to be recognised. I think the Aesthetics Awards is about showing that it’s a serious specialism and, at a time where we haven’t got a whole lot of regulation, it’s important to come together and show that patients should be at the heart of what we do. If I have helped in any way to raise standards and the importance of training and education, then that’s a fantastic thing.” Paul Huttrer, CEO of Schuco, said, “It’s the third, year that we have sponsored this award, and we love being involved in such a prestigious accolade. I think this Award highlights issues around safety and the responsible side of the industry and it makes sure that we recognise people that put in the hard work around training and education, not just getting the glamour, which is important.”

Indications: Temporary improvement in appearance of moderate to severe: • Glabellar lines seen at maximum frown, and/or • lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet lines) seen at maximum smile in adult patients under 65 years, when severity of these lines has an important psychological impact on the patient. Dosage & Administration: Botulinum toxin units are different depending on the medicinal products. Speywood units are specific to this preparation and are not interchangeable with other botulinum toxins. Reconstitute prior to injection. Intramuscular injections should be performed at right angles to the skin using a sterile 29-30 gauge needle. Glabellar lines: recommended dose is 50 Speywood units (0.25 ml of reconstituted solution) divided equally into 5 injection sites,; 2 injections into each corrugator muscle and one into the procerus muscle near the nasofrontal angle. Lateral canthal lines: recommended dose per side is 30 Speywood units (60 Speywood units for both sides, 0.30 ml of reconstituted solution) divided into 3 injection sites; 10 Speywood units (0.05 ml of reconstituted solution) administered intramuscularly into each injection point. All injection points should be at the external part of the orbicularis oculi muscle and sufficiently far from the orbital rim (approximately 1 - 2 cm); (See summary of product characteristics for full technique). Treatment interval should not be more frequent than every three months. The efficacy and safety of repeat injections of Azzalure has been evaluated in Glabellar lines up to 24 months and up to 8 repeat treatment cycles and for Lateral Canthal lines up to 12 months and up to 5 repeat treatment cycles. Not recommended for use in individuals under 18 years of age. Contraindications: In individuals with hypersensitivity to botulinum toxin A or to any of the excipients. In the presence of infection at the proposed injection sites, myasthenia gravis, Eaton Lambert Syndrome or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Special warnings and precautions for use: Care should be taken to ensure that Azzalure is not injected into a blood vessel. Use with caution in patients with a risk of, or clinical evidence of, marked defective neuro-muscular transmission, in the presence of inflammation at the proposed injection site(s) or when the targeted muscle shows excessive weakness or atrophy. Patients treated with therapeutic doses may experience exaggerated muscle weakness. Not recommended in patients with history of dysphagia, aspiration or with prolonged bleeding time. Seek immediate medical care if swallowing, speech or respiratory difficulties arise. Facial asymmetry, ptosis, excessive dermatochalasis, scarring and any Adverse events should be reported.

alterations to facial anatomy, as a result of previous surgical interventions should be taken into consideration prior to injection. Injections at more frequent intervals/higher doses can increase the risk of antibody formation. Avoid administering different botulinum neurotoxins during the course of treatment with Azzalure. To be used for one single patient treatment only during a single session. Interactions: Concomitant treatment with aminoglycosides or other agents interfering with neuromuscular transmission (e.g. curare-like agents) may potentiate effect of botulinum toxin. Pregnancy, Lactation & Fertility: Not to be used during pregnancy or lactation. There are no clinical data from the use of Azzalure on fertility. There is no evidence of direct effect of Azzalure on fertility in animal studies Side Effects: Most frequently occurring related reactions are headache and injection site reactions for glabellar lines and; headache, injection site reactions and eyelid oedema for lateral canthal lines.. Generally treatment/injection technique related reactions occur within first week following injection and are transient. Undesirable effects may be related to the active substance, the injection procedure, or a combination of both. For glabellar lines: Very Common (≥ 1/10): Headache, Injection site reactions (e.g. erythema, oedema, irritation, rash, pruritus, paraesthesia, pain, discomfort, stinging and haematoma). Common (≥ 1/100 to < 1/10): Temporary facial paresis (due to temporary paresis of facial muscles proximal to injection sites, predominantly describes brow paresis), Asthenopia, Eyelid ptosis, Eyelid oedema, Lacrimation increase, Dry eye, Muscle twitching (twitching of muscles around the eyes). Uncommon (≥ 1/1,000 to <1/100): Dizziness, Visual impairment, Vision blurred, Diplopia, Pruritus, Rash, Hypersensitivity. Rare (≥ 1/10,000 to < 1/1,000): Eye movement disorder, Urticaria. For lateral canthal lines: Common (≥ 1/100 to < 1/10): Headache, Temporary facial paresis (due to temporary paresis of facial muscles proximal to injection sites), Eyelid ptosis, Eyelid oedema and Injection site disorders (e.g. haematoma, pruritus and oedema). Adverse reactions resulting from distribution of the effects of the toxin to sites remote from the site of injection have been very rarely reported with botulinum toxin (excessive muscle weakness, dysphagia, aspiration pneumonia with fatal outcome in some cases).
