Opening Remarks from Chair

Dr Ronald Feiner, Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Proceduralist, Cosmetica Medical Aesthetic Clinic

9:00 am

In October 2016 the Medical Board of Australia (the Board) issued Guidelines for registered medical practitioners who perform cosmetic medical and surgical procedures. The guidelines apply to all medical practitioners, including specialist plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons and cosmetic physicians regardless of their qualifications.

The guidelines follow major reviews into cosmetic surgery and a recommendation from Australian Health Ministers, concerned about inconsistent regulation of this industry, that the Medical Board of Australia act to safeguard consumers. The Board consulted widely with the profession, the industry and the community about the best way to protect consumers seeking cosmetic medical and surgical procedures from medical practitioners. There was a wide range of views in the hundreds of submissions that the Board received, however, there was support from stakeholders for clear guidance in this area.

The guidelines aim to keep patients safe, without imposing an unreasonable regulatory burden on practitioners. Associate Professor Bradshaw will outline some of the requirements in the Board’s Guidelines that address key areas of concern for stakeholders including informed consent, cooling off periods, responsibilities of medical practitioners in relation to post-operative patient care and when they are using sedation, anaesthesia or analgesia and requirements when a medical practitioner prescribes and then delegates administration of schedule 4 (prescription only) cosmetic injectables to another health practitioner.

9:20 am

  • Standard operating policy & procedure
  • Roles and responsibilities of registered and non-registered staff
  • Educational standards
  • New initiatives.

9:40 am

Patients often prefer subtle improvements in augmentation of facial features such as lips, cheeks and tear troughs. Strategic placement of dermal fillers may achieve this at lower volumes with reduced cost, less down time and without others being able to tell that have had a procedure performed.

Video demonstrations of techniques for mixing and decanting dermal fillers and low volume filling of facial areas will be shown.

The author has used incobotulinumtoxinA (Xeomin) almost exclusively in his practice for the last 24 months, since its launch in Australia. This paper is a summation of this experience in terms of patient and doctor satisfaction and cost effectiveness of the product.

Treatment Plans of the Face with Non-Surgical Treatments

Dr Chris Lee, Medical Director, Cosmos Clinic Canberra

10:40 am

Treatment modalites for acne include: topical agents, oral medications, medical skincare, chemical peels, lasers, PDT and now the AGNES RF device (selective sebaceous gland destruction, using the Kobayashi method). The Agnes RF device employs micro-coated needles specifically designed to deliver appropriate fluences and pulse durations to targeted acne prone sebaceous glands while coating needles at exactly the right depth to protect the epidermis and upper dermis while being of sufficient exposed length to permanently destroy the entire sebaceous unit. While the face has approximately 250,000 sebaceous glands less than 5% of these may be acne prone hence the advantage of selective destruction as opposed to total suppression of all sebaceous glands with unwanted side effects with oral isotretinoin or temporary suppression of P. acnes with PDT or oral antibiotics.

Eye bags may be currently surgically treated with lower lid blepharoplasty (via skin incision) and trans-conjunctival fat removal. Alternatives are masking of the bag with dermal fillers plus tightening of dermal collagen with laser resurfacing. The AGNES RF device is a new device that employs micro-coated needles specifically designed to deliver appropriate fluences and pulse durations to targeted rhytides and fat pads with coated needles at exactly the right depth to protect the epidermis and upper dermis while being of sufficient exposed length to permanently stimulate new collagen and permanently destroy herniated fat containing adipocytes. The thickness of eyelids is clinically very significant because it is too thin(less than 1mm) to be treated through laser, HI-FU and other cooling system equipped devices which requires the minimum thickness of 1.5mm for its energy to be applied effectively.

11:00 am

Morning Tea

11:20 am

This talk will present on the use of topical therapies for facial rejuvenation using clinically tested formulations, how to ensure excellent outcomes and ongoing benefits for patients with rejuvenation programs.

11:40 am

Skin aging is a complex, multifactorial event common to all individuals. Aging starts after post-pubertal hormonal stabilization and continues – at different speeds – the whole duration of life. Genetic, intrinsic, and extrinsic factors are variably responsible for the clinical progression of body and skin aging. Irregular pigmentation, superficial and deep textural changes, capillary and venular telangiectasias, dermal structural modifications are common signs of skin aging. There is no single technique, EBD-assisted treatment, or surgical procedure able to effectively address all different characteristics of skin aging. Combination treatments are the best option to improve the complex variety of its multiple clinical signs. Full body skin analysis associated with general health assessment need to be performed to elaborate effective, personalized treatment strategies. All sequential steps of proposed treatments need to be properly described and discussed in advance. Perfect understanding of post-treatment tissue recovery and overall expectations of possible clinical improvements are fundamental steps to be considered for a smooth patient-physician relationship. Observers’ perception of skin aging is strongly influenced by the degree of irregular pigmentation present on visible skin regions: face, hands, and décolletage in particular. Skin colour uniformity is one of the major aims of patients interested in improving their skin.  Rejuvenation procedures should therefore take into high consideration this particular aspect of skin aging and possibly implement effective strategies to achieve significant improvements of skin colour uniformity on top of all other anti-aging treatments. Spotless rejuvenation consists of a sequential combination of different light and energy treatments logically “layered” within affected skin structures in order to achieve positively balanced synergistic effects.  Treatment combinations are tailored to effectively address skin alterations present on each specific anatomical region of the body. Procedural complexity depends on the degree of clinical alterations. Spotless rejuvenation is usually divided into two main categories: initial overall corrective treatments to achieve the best possible improvement of specific skin alterations in a single session; and subsequent personalized maintenance treatments to be periodically performed in order to prolong the corrective benefits achieved by initial treatments. Today’s trends are focusing on minimally invasive procedures to be easily accepted by patients according to personalized long-term anti-aging protocols. These procedures must have the possibility to be sequentially combined when complex skin aging signs are present.  Dermal toning, vascular and pigment uniformity can be easily performed during the same treatment session using different combinations of short and long pulse IR laser, Q-S laser, intense pulsed light, gentle ablative and non-ablative fractional resurfacing, and superficial chemical peels. Recovery time, after more complex spotless rejuvenation treatments, is usually 5-7 days on facial skin but may be progressively longer as we go down on the body. Anatomical areas below the umbilical line heal too slow and are prone to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Careful judgment should be performed before treating these potentially problematic areas.  Maximum post-treatment oedema is usually observed 48 hours on facial skin. Immediate and late post-treatment skin care is of fundamental importance to optimize healing time, reduce possible side effects, and prolong skin improvements.

SKYPE SESSION: Complications of Dermal Fillers

Dr Patrick Treacy, Cosmetic Doctor & Medical Director, Ailesbury Clinics (IRE)

9:10 am

Planning and implementing effective post-treatment strategies should be considered as an integral part of any invasive and micro-invasive skin procedure. We are strongly convinced that none of such procedures is really concluded until treated tissues are completely recovered. Post-operative skin care is therefore as crucial as the procedure itself since a consistent proportion of events leading to good clinical results depends on optimal wound healing processes. The main purpose of post-treatment wound healing strategies is to help traumatized tissue to recover as fast as possible, minimizing side effects and possible complications, providing minimal discomfort during dressing changes.

The advantages of moist wound healing over dry tissue repair are well recognized. Acute wounds heal 40% faster in a moist environment compared to air exposed ones. Keratinocytes migrate faster and more efficiently over wounded surfaces, neo-angiogenesis is more responsive, injury-related growth factors persist longer within healing tissue, spontaneous and induced wound debridement are easier and more efficient, the infection rate is lower while wound tissue-related superficial electric fields are working undisturbed in a moist wound healing environment.

Acne is the curse of our youth but is also being seen more frequently in our older population. The aetiology remains multifactorial and the treatment is broadly divided into prescription medication and the use of cosmeceuticals which are increasingly being used as many patients are moving away from harsher preparations which often have side effects to clinically proven topical therapies that will achieve the same, if not better, results. My presentation will aim to highlight the data and discuss regimes which produce sustained results, with treatments that are tolerated by patients.

This talk discusses the new Guidelines for Registered Medical Practitioners who Perform Cosmetic Medical and Surgical Procedures released by the Medical Board of Australia on 1 October 2016 with reference to:

  • The legal weight of the guidelines;
  • How they might be relevant to civil proceedings;
  • The impact of the guidelines on those other than registered medical practitioners; and
  • The types of claims that might arise.

Lasers and IPLs have now been in use in the cosmetic industry for a number of years and are used in a variety of medical and non-medical procedures. The existence and extent of regulations for lasers and IPLs varies widely across Australia. Where jurisdictions have moved to implement specific measures it has usually been in response to local concerns about issues such as safety and the quality of procedures. There are currently only three jurisdictions that regulate lasers and only one that regulates IPLs for medical and cosmetic use in Australia under their Radiation Protection/Safety legislations. Whilst Class 3B and Class 4 lasers are regulated in some States and Territories there is no National Uniformity in Australia for lasers and IPLs. There has been growing concern in the Australian public regarding the lack of a national uniform approach to ensure that lasers and IPLs used for cosmetic purposes are used appropriately and the risk for injury and mistreatment is minimised. The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is working with State and Territory regulators to develop a nationally consistent and appropriate control of the use of lasers and IPLs for cosmetic procedures.

2:00 pm

Session TBA || Stream: SESSION 3: REGULATION AND BEST PRACTICE

This pigmentation disorder is the cause of a significant amount of distress to patients who suffer from this. Although there have been a lot of hypotheses as to the cause of this condition, there is no universal consensus as to the cause yet a multitude of treatments on the market which attempt to treat it. These range from topical therapies including peels, topical retinoids and mesotherapy with varying success. Further treatments include intense pulsed lights sources and lasers including the Nd:YAG which attempts to destroy the pigment. Other practitioners have used destructive lasers which aim to resurface the skin. However all these modalities have been reported with varying success both short and long term. This talk will attempt to weed out the various treatments and the evidence frothier success in clinical practice and highlight my approach to this distressing condition

Medicolegal Risk and Practitioner Obligations in the Cosmetic Industry || Stream: SESSION 3: REGULATION AND BEST PRACTICE

Kate Gillman, Head of Medico Legal Advisory Service, Avant Mutual Group

Rosacea is a frequent chronic skin problem in caucasians. Its prevalence may vary from 9.6% to 16% according to different statistical studies. General population of ≥ 30 years of age may show one or more primary features of rosacea, like erythema (21%) and telangiectasia (18%). The majority of rosacea patients exibit erythemato-telangiectatic alterations even if papulo-pustular features are consistently represented. Topical and general treatments associated with proper diet and sun protection are the mainstay of rosacea therapy even if anti-inflammatory photo-biomodulation, laser and intense pulsed light are becoming major players on the scene. Their specific effects on the different components of affected skin are able to generate positive synergistic reactions which will progressively decrease the number and intensity of facial flushing. Periodic light-based treatments can effectively reduce the amount of medications needed to control clinical manifestation of rosacea. Personalized approaches are nevertheless needed to tailor the sequential steps characterizing modern combination treatments which are showing the best clinical outcomes.

2:40 pm

Consumer safety, quality service provision and high standards of care are imperative within the cosmetic medical environment. Accreditation can support your cosmetic medical practice to achieve better outcomes through effective risk management, and safety and quality systems, while reassuring consumers of your commitment to continuous review of systems and processes to assist in driving quality improvement initiatives. To support improvements across Australia’s healthcare system as a whole, undertaking the process of accreditation can also contribute to your practice’s journey towards achievement of the Quadruple Aim (an extension of Berwick, Nolan and Whittington’s Triple Aim framework).

LUTRONIC INFINI is the high intensity focused RF solution to create targeted and robust coagulation zones in aging, sagging skin with pigmentation, wrinkles and laxity. Complete control over treatment depth and energy levels enables a multi-layered targeted approach for truly customized treatments, regardless of patient’s skin type or tanned skin.

3:00 pm

A significant challenge for practitioners is to determine before undertaking cosmetic procedures, which patients are likely to do well and who might do badly. There is a need for appropriate and comprehensive pre-procedure screening which should include discussion on body-image concerns and motivation and expectations of procedures to help determine any underlying psycho-social problems, especially for younger and more vulnerable patients, and which may impact poorly on the outcome of any cosmetic procedure.
