CCR Expo 2016 was a great success, bringing together thousands of practitioners and suppliers committed to excellence across the whole spectrum of aesthetic medicine. Julie has worked with the faculty to provide the best educational content for aesthetic nurses and doctors nationally and internationally.
Over the course of two days, visitors were enthralled as 180 leading suppliers shared the latest trends and innovative solutions, launching a raft of new products and techniques. The workshop theatres were packed throughout the event and played host to some of the world’s leading experts covering both surgical and non-surgical procedures. The buzz around the hall was palpable!
Once again, we want to thank our exhibitors, visitors, show supporters, sponsors and media partners for helping to make 2016 the best show yet. CCR Expo will be back next year, so save the date…5th & 6th October 2017, Olympia, London.

Facial Anatomy Masterclass
Day 1
Chair: Miss Julie Brackenbury RGN, Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner
Danger areas vs safe areas when injecting
The rapid advancement and development of the field of non-surgical aesthetic procedures has driven the need
for clear knowledge of the risks and benefits of target injection sites across the face. This lecture examines
specific key injection zones of the face and considers how applied anatomy, product characteristics knowledge
and careful injection techniques can help Maximise the likelihood of great aesthetic outcomes with the lowest
risks to patent safety.

Diagnosis, management and treatment of injectables complications
Injections with botulinum toxin and fillers are by far the most commonly performed aesthetic treatment
worldwide. Injudicious injection technique or product choice can however lead unaesthetic results and possibly
disastrous complications. A thorough understanding of the anatomy as well as the nature and mechanism of
action of the injectable is quintessential to avoid these. An overview of anatomical key points is given to avoid
intravascular injection of fillers and techniques are presented to overcome the effect of poorly placed
botulinum toxin, as well as techniques to inject hyaluronidase after vascular accidents with hyaluronic acid.
Professor Dr Benoit Hendrickx MD PhD FCCP FEBOPRAS, Plastic Surgeon & Associate Professor, University
Hospital Brussels
Prevention, recognition and management of serious complications associated with injectable soft-tissue filling and
augmenting materials
Over the last few years, injectable soft-tissue fillers have become an integral part of Aesthetic Medicine. A wide
variety of biodegradable and permanent filling agents are currently available in the UK. Any injectable filler may
elicit moderate-to-severe adverse reactions ranging from persistent nodules and granulomas to blindness and
skin necrosis. With the increasing popularity and diversity of filling and volumising products used by an array of
aesthetic practitioners we have also witnessed an increase of serious adverse and, very occasionally, life-
changing events. This talk will focus on the recognition and management of serious complications along with a
thorough anatomical review of the important facial structures that all injectors should be aware of in order to
prevent erroneous placement of the filling agent. The presentation will include unpublished photographic
material of serious adverse events and an interactive session where aesthetic medical practitioners could
exchange views, discuss complicated cases and learn from each other’s experience as part of their continuous
professional development.

Day 2
Revalidation your essential guide updated
BACN Nurse Lou Sommereux co led the UK Aesthetic Nurses Revalidation Pilot Study 2015 the biggest milestone
in recent nursing history, she continues to work with the NMC on the assessment of revalidation
implementation and it implication for Aesthetic Nurses. From April 2016 the first three groups of nurses and
midwives have now gone through revalidation and generally tens of thousands of nurses have now revalidated,
early indications show that the introduction of revalidation has been a great success. Nurses and midwives are
embracing revalidation and finding real benefits in the process for themselves. September is a very busy period
as there are more than three times the amount that went through the process in April. Lou Sommereux will
bring you up to date on this and will illustrate how the BACN is supporting its members through the revalidation

Recognition of Prior Learning procedures.
