MediSpa Conference 2014
Join keynote speaker Susanne Warfield, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Sept. 16, at The Institute of Beauty and Wellness' annual MediSpa Conference at the OC Hanson Auditorium in Milwakee inside the Aveda Building. Susanne will present on on the business, ethics and liability of the medispa industry.

Medical spas, also known as mediSpas, blend the best of both worlds — a spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor's office.

MediSpa's use more aggressive treatments and are a great way to get treatment for acne, aging skin, hair removal and more.

This year's impressive panel boasts all of the above — skin care expertise and a touch of spa added to every treatment. The conference will also touch on upcoming medusa trends like skin rejuvenation, injectables, industry trends, skin rejuvenation and body contouring.
