WELCOME What an evening! It was wonderful to come together once again to celebrate the outstanding achievements and hard work that everyone has put into enhancing the aesthetic specialty in 2018! Many congratulations must go to the Winners, however it’s also very important to recognise all our finalists; we received an extremely high standard of entries across all categories. Well done to you all! Congratulations to Sharon Bennett in particular, for winning The Schuco Aesthetics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Aesthetics, a lady who has done so much for the specialty. Huge thanks must go to our judging panel, who take great care in assessing all entries carefully, accurately and considerately, ensuring the impartiality and integrity of the Aesthetics Awards continues. We are also grateful to everyone who voted – it’s fantastic to see everyone in the specialty supporting each other and recognising the amazing products and services available today. Finally, thank you to our sponsors for their continued support and participation. From the comments we’ve received, it seems that you all agree that Russell Kane and voiceover Jon Briggs were fantastic hosts and our live band did an amazing job of keeping everyone dancing into the early hours! We hope you all enjoyed the night as much as we did!

AMANDA CAMERON EDITOR, AESTHETICS JOURNAL

CHARIT Y PARTNER Our chosen charity for the Aesthetics Awards 2018 was the British Red Cross. In particular, we asked guests for donations towards relief for the 18 million people living in Yemen who are living in extreme hunger, without access to nutritious food and clean water. According to the British Red Cross, disease and conflict are killing an estimated 75 people every day, while more than 80% of the population urgently need emergency aid. The organisation works with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Yemen Red Crescent. Together they provide food, clean water, medical help and essential household items. In 2017 alone, the Red Cross helped the ICRC and the Red Crescent reach more than 800,000 people with basic aid.

Thanks to your donations, £2,400 was raised for this extremely worthy charity, which will go towards providing food and supplies such as blankets, water containers and soap. If you would still like to support the British Red Cross contact Louisa on lmclellan@redcross.org.uk or call 020 7877 7602.

THE EVENING

It was a spectacular night of glitz and glamour at the prestigious Aesthetics Awards 2018. Professionals from across the specialty gathered at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in central London to celebrate another successful year with more than 800 attendees. Guests had their picture taken at the Aesthetics Awards press board, caught up with friends and colleagues, and enjoyed drinks and live music from singer songwriter Alice MC at the networking event, before moving to the beautiful ballroom for a delicious three-course dinner. Amanda Cameron, the Editor of the Aesthetics journal and Aesthetics Awards judge welcomed guests to the ceremony, thanking the sponsors, judges and voters for their support. She also introduced this year’s comedian and host, Russell Kane, compère Jon Briggs, the original voice of Apple’s iPhone assistant Siri, and the chosen charity of the year, the British Red Cross. Guests then enjoyed a hilarious comedy set by Russell Kane featuring bespoke aestheticrelated jokes that kept everyone entertained. Dianne Burkhill, marketing manager at Syneron Candela UK Ltd, said of Kane’s performance, “The comedian was great, I think it’s important to really jolly the crowd along – he was excellent.” The Commended and Highly Commended finalists were then applauded for their achievements, before Winners in the 26 prestigious categories were welcomed to the stage to collect their unique ‘A’ trophies and take their winners’ photographs. The first Winner of the night was the NeoStrata Skin Active Tri Therapy Lifting Serum, which was awarded the accolade for Skin Product or Range of the Year. Other product winners included Teosyal RHA, PicoWay and SkinPen Precision, which was awarded The Barry Knapp Award for Product Innovation of the Year, supported by Medical Aesthetic Group. The clinic categories were recognised for commitment to excellence in customer service, patient care, safety and evidence of good feedback from patients. Aesthetic companies were also awarded for their achievements, as were training providers and support partners. Agostina Murgia of Bottled Science, the UK distributor of Skinade, was presented with The Healthxchange Group Award for Sales Representative of the Year. She said, “I’m shaking and so overwhelmed! It’s the most prestigious and rewarding awards ceremony so it means a lot. I really have to thank everyone who voted for me.” A first in Aesthetics Awards history saw the recognition of two winners for The PHI Clinic Award for Professional Initiative of the Year. This important category appreciates initiatives that have demonstrated evidence of activity designed to benefit the industry as a whole. Congratulations went to the Black Skin Directory and Visual Loss Management Guidance in collaboration with Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Complications Management for their work. Finally, the highly anticipated practitioner categories closed the ceremony. The Teoxane Award for Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner of the Year went to Jane

Laferla and Dr Simon Ravichandran took home The ABC Lasers Award for Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year. He said, “I am overwhelmed – it’s still not sinking in as this was totally unexpected and I think every finalist in this category deserved to win.” Finally, to conclude the remarkable ceremony, The Schuco Aesthetics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Aesthetics was presented to a practitioner who has demonstrated commitment and passion for regulation, industry growth and patient safety. Nurse prescriber and chair of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) Sharon Bennett received the award, chosen by the Aesthetics team. Bennett said, “It’s just amazing! It is a great recognition of all that I have done, particularly with the BACN and the work that we are doing to try and regulate the industry.” Following the awards presentation ceremony, guests moved out of the ballroom to continue networking and dance the night away to a live band and DJ. Iain Ashby, marketing consultant at John Bannon Pharmacy, sponsor of two awards, said of his evening, “My highlight tonight has been the networking, it’s very important, especially as we are new to the UK. Meeting old friends and making new friends has been great – the networking is very important.” Sharon Allen, business development executive from category sponsor Enhance Insurance, summed up the night, “I really enjoyed the ceremony tonight and how well it was organised. The comedian Russell Kane was absolutely fantastic, and the whole evening was so professional. We come back to the Aesthetics Awards every year because of the whole ethos that it has – it is what this specialty needs.”

The Aesthetics Awards is the pinnacle of the specialty and it is recognising that women of colour have specific needs and concerns which weren’t being addressed. Being recognised with this award validates the women’s concerns that I hear every single day! Thank you!”

“We’ve had an amazing time since opening and this is the pinnacle!” Dr Julia Langford, Winner

Amongst the eight noteable finalists, it was Tay Medispa that was crowned the Winner of The AestheticSource Award for Best New Clinic, UK & Ireland. The clinic was established by husband and wife team Simon and Dr Julia Langford in February 2017. Dr Langford had been providing aesthetic treatments in Perthshire since 2009 and wanted to centralise her services. According to the clinic’s entry, the concept was born out of changes on the horizon in relation to Healthcare Improvement Scotland and the need for a high-end clinic in the area. Dr Langford said of the win, “We’ve had an amazing time since opening and this is the pinnacle of it really – this is a big Award! We are so chuffed and really lucky to have such a great team around us!” Lorna McDonnell-Bowes, director of AestheticSource, which sponsored the Award, said, “The new clinic category is important to support because it’s often where people are coming in and learning about how aesthetics works. I think it’s good for new clinics to come to the Awards and learn what can be done well and to see the established clinics winning so they can learn from them – it’s just great to celebrate the new people coming in.”

“Sharon has been a pioneering figure in medical aesthetics through her work as a clinician and her work with the BACN” Edward Fox, Sponsor

Sharon Bennett, aesthetic nurse prescriber and BACN chair was presented with The Schuco Aesthetics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Aesthetics due to her dedication, commitment and passion for the specialty. In 1996, she flew to Sweden with a colleague to clear the UK distribution for a promising new product, which we all know today as Restylane. Since then, she has co-founded and become Chair of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, as well as representing the UK for standards in Europe and working tirelessly to develop the education, training and regulation of aesthetic nurses across the UK. Bennett said, “It’s amazing, just amazing! It was such a shock and although this is an honour to win, I feel like I have got a lot more to achieve. It is a great recognition of all that I have done, particularly with the BACN and the work that we are doing to try and regulate the industry. It’s the biggest awards ceremony in our specialty and it’s so nice that this night brings us all together.” Edward Fox, marketing manager of category sponsor Schuco Aesthetics, said, “This is the third year that we have sponsored the Outstanding Achievement Award and we continue to do so because we feel it is important to reward and celebrate the work of clinicians that have made exceptional contributions to the industry over the course of their careers. There is no better platform than the Aesthetics Awards to do this. Schuco Aesthetics would like to congratulate Sharon on this award – she has been a pioneering figure in medical aesthetics through her work as a clinician and her work with the BACN. She has achieved so much during her career and this award recognises and celebrates that.”
