Aesthetic Medicine has continuously proven to be one of the fastest growth industries worldwide and subsequently exposed to tremendous change.  We see new devices, techniques, products, ingredients and information emerging from all sides of the world.  Unfortunately education on all the new material and the legislation is not keeping up with the tremendous growth.  -  Dr Riekie Smit

  What should you look for in a medical practitioner to avoid reputational damage for your spa.


  What are the risk factors, if any, involved in incorporating medical aesthetics to your services.


  How does payment work i.e. where the spa makes their money after the medical practitioner is paid.

  What are the various options available in terms of treatments i.e. peels, Botox, fillers etc.
