The MCA-Live conference gathered the best international specialists, doctors, professors, leading brands and latest technologies in the field of anti-aging medicine.

The conference consisted of the several complementary sectors. Pre-congress on 20th September was named “ONE2ONE” and was a hands-on training for facial aesthetics that gave an opportunity to sharpen the injection skills under the direction of a private tutor.

The favorite facial zones chosen by young professionals to practice were lips – pumped with hyaluronic acid fillers; foreheads – numbed by botulinum toxin; and “the 5 minutes” nose jobs – a fast emerging trend that replaces the need for traditional plastic surgery. The effect lasts about a year or two.

The other part of the congress was VISAGE, theoretical and practical part (21-23 September), where attendees gained skills and competence in the facial anatomy, various rejuvenation techniques associated to aesthetics and, nevertheless, complication prevention knowledge.

Every participant received a certificate from the European Council for Continuing Medical Education and Sunday’s groups even continued their internship at the Head and Neck Institute in Nice.

The most interesting topics presented by distinguished anti-aging experts like Prof. Claude Dale, Dr. Thierry Besins, Dr. Philippe Kestemont and Dr. Cecile Winter were: sexual antiaging, non-invasive fat removal, acne scar treatment, profiloplasty and regenerative stem cells ethical use.

For local Monaco spectators, even with a simple VISITOR’s PASS you could have an exciting tour around the exhibition area, where well known “beauty magnates” exposed their goods.

Average visitors were able to try beauty machineries like CO2 lasers, LED lamps and other “forever young” equipments. Some of the industry giants like CROMA, Universkin, Teoxane and Filorga revealed their bespoke products and offered an exhibition price for keen-to-buy guests.
