With the most comprehensive and progressive medical aesthetic educational program ever assembled in the U.S., this unique venue is focused on accelerating and sustaining the development of a $34 billion global market for aesthetic treatments.
"THE Aesthetic Show offers a weekend immersion in everything new and relevant in the aesthetic procedure business," said Michael Moretti, President of Medical Insight, Inc. and Chairman of THE Aesthetic Show. "We specifically designed this sophisticated show to serve the needs of both aesthetic practices and the supporting industry by breaking down the artificial barriers between various competing medical subspecialties.

Faculty members of THE Aesthetic Show include the top anti-aging, cosmetic surgery and aesthetic medicine experts in the world, as well as some of the highest visibility celebrity physicians in the field. "Our attendees will enjoy three days of direct access to over 50 of the elite thought leaders who are driving the advancement and cultural mainstreaming of aesthetic medicine," explained Mr. Moretti. "Every relevant subject from the latest plastic surgery techniques to avant-garde body shaping and home use devices will be presented and evaluated in one weekend. This scientific program also offers 25 intensive one-hour workshops featuring interactive training sessions with patient treatments."
