Aesthetics is as much an art as it is medicine and regular training plays an important role in ensuring that the practitioners retain their precision and deliver the best results.
Precision is particularly important when it comes to the art of using dermal fillers for facial contouring to enhance and re-shape features. The demand for dermal fillers and other aesthetic treatments is increasingly rapidly in India as more and more people convert to the idea of procedures like lip augmentation, highlighted cheeks and facial re-contouring. The Galderma Aesthetic Academy fulfils the need for a world class training and skill upgradation center for doctors in an increasingly competitive field.
Head of Regional Centre of Excellence - Asia Pacific, Galderma and a senior healthcare expert with extensive international experience in Aesthetic Medicine and Dermatology, Dr Scott McLennan was also in India to officially announce the launch of the Galderma Aesthetic Academy.
“The field of cosmetic medicine is a market which is growingly rapidly and is hence becoming increasingly competitive. Medicine, at the same time, is a field where even well entrenched and highly successful doctors need to keep abreast with all the new developments in their domains. The Academy is an attempt to ensure that Indian medical practitioners are at par the world’s best when it comes to aesthetics. They should be equipped with the knowledge and training of each and every latest treatment that is available anywhere in the world,” says Mr G Sathya Narayanan, Managing Director, Galderma India.
