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 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.

Cornering the male aesthetic market
Modern Aesthetics
Market data show that men are a fast growing segment of the cosmetic surgery population and have a particular interest in minimally invasive procedures. However, physicians who hope to grow their practices by capitalizing on the growing male market need to make men a priority. Physicians should adopt an all-encompassing, gender-specific approach to patient care, treatment, clinic design, staffing and marketing.

Building an aesthetics team
Surgical Aesthetics
The challenge for practices that want to create a one-stop aesthetic care destination is staffing. Physician extenders, such as nurse practitioners and physicians assistants, and nonmedical providers, such as estheticians and massage therapists, can offer many of these adjunct treatments, allowing physicians to focus on surgery and consultations. But this approach requires careful communication and planning. Surgical Aesthetics spoke with three surgeons who work with both medical and nonmedical providers in their private practices and asked them to share their strategies for integrating ancillary treatments into a cosmetic surgery practice.
