Skin Care 2007 - Skin in the City

Looking at Hot Topics in Skin Care at the 13th SPSSCS Annual Meeting

(press release from Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists)

NEW YORK, April 19 -- The Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists (SPSSCS) celebrates its 13th Annual Meeting in New York. This year's theme: Skin Care 2007 - Skin in the City. The meeting offers educational seminars and sessions for nurses, aestheticians and other trained skin care specialists working in the offices of plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Also featured are exhibits from companies manufacturing the latest products for medically-supervised skin care.

"Skin care has come a long way in the past 13 years," says SPSSCS President Elizabeth Smith. "One size does not fit all -- not only are techniques different for people with different skin types but the concept of what is beautiful differs as well."

Two highlights from the Skin Care 2007 include:
According to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), racial and ethnic minorities accounted for 22 percent of all cosmetic procedures performed last year. Expertise in treating skin of color involves more than knowing how a certain laser or injectable might affect a patient. It also requires an understanding of cultural differences and sensitivity to those issues when discussing treatment options with a patient. Renato Saltz, MD, Secretary of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will moderate a discussion between cosmetic plastic surgeons of different cultural backgrounds. Buthainah Al-Shunnar, MD, a surgeon in Dubai, will share experience as a female plastic surgeon in the Middle East; Katherine Au, MD, will share perspectives on Asian ideals of beauty; and Larry Leverett, MD, an African American surgeon from Arizona will talk about having an increased awareness of ethnic concerns.

Another highlight of the meeting will be legislative and regulatory issues regarding aesthetic care. As states begin to apply more regulatory pressures on nurses and aestheticians who perform procedures, it is becoming increasingly important to let people know exactly who is qualified to perform specific procedures. This panel will discuss the current regulatory environment for nurses and aestheticians as well as proposed educational standards.

WHAT: Skin Care 2007 - Skin In The City
Annual Meeting: Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists (Note: SPSSCS meeting is during the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), New York's Javits Convention Center, April 19-24)
WHERE: New York Marriott Marquis - New York, NY
WHEN: April 19-22, 2007
FACTS ABOUT MEDICALLY-SUPERVISED SKIN CARE:
Medically-supervised skin care, administered by qualified staff, provides patients with safe, clinically-tested treatments that are proven effective.

Medically-supervised skin care offers patients expert guidance in selecting appropriate products for home use -- products with stronger, more effective ingredients than are available over-the-counter.

Medically-supervised skin care has become part of today's plastic surgery practice. Among members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), 49%* employ a skin care specialist on staff. An additional 9%* of ASAPS members contract the services of an independent skin care specialist.
