The Awards

The Aesthetics Awards brings together the very best in medical aesthetics and leaders in the profession to celebrate the achievements of the past year. Special categories have been designed to recognise the finalists and winners for their services to the profession and industry. Awards are presented to those clinics, individual practitioners, manufacturers and suppliers who have worked hard to represent the highest standards in clinical excellence, product innovation and practice achievement, while truly excelling in the field of aesthetic medicine.
