Just back from a refresher aesthetic dermatology/plastic surgery course with international speakers, held in Singapore. This 3-day congress with live demonstrations treats Asian skin with the latest injectables, laser, threading techniques. In addition, extensive attention has also been paid to cosmeceuticals and nutriceuticals, or skin products and supplements that keep the body in ‘Shape’. The take home message of this course is that different skin types require a different approach , Asian skin differs from white skin in several ways. It is very important to recognize these differences to achieve a good result.
