Play the Winning Hand - Watching Your Fortunes Grow in Skin Care

Looking at Hot Topics in Skin Care at the 15th SPSSCS Annual Meeting

New York, NY (Vocus) April 29, 2009 -- The Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists (SPSSCS) celebrates its 15th Annual Meeting - Play the Winning Hand: Watching Your Fortunes Grow in Skin Care, to be held in Las Vegas, NV. The meeting offers educational seminars for nurses, aestheticians and other trained skin care specialists working in the offices of plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Also featured are exhibits from companies providing the latest products and services for medically-supervised skin care.

"This year's educational program balances the science of corrective skin care, the safety standards that should be adhered to, and the medical-legal aspects involved in patient-care," says SPSSCS President-Elect and Program Chair Sandra Day, from Sarasota, FL. "As we all know, this is a challenging time in our economy. However, 'skin care' is not a frivolous expense. As corrective skin care specialists, we are promoting not only appearance, but the health of good skin as well."

One of the highlights from the Skin Care 2009 Meeting will be a breakout session titled Product Evaluations - A Comprehensive Method of How To Look Beyond The Hype. This is an interactive course designed to discuss the various range of home care product options available to the medical skin care specialist and systematic ways for evaluating them. The discussion will be led by Sandra Adams and Denise Byrnes, skin care specialists and former SPSSCS board members, who currently work for companies that develop and market skin care products.

"Good skin care is not determined by a product's package or price point," says Ms. Day. "Skin care specialists are not sales people. We want our patients to buy what is appropriate for their skin, products that will effectively address their concerns and goals. This session is about how to evaluate a skin care product based on the helpful and harmful ingredients in each product, and the effectiveness of their delivery method."

Medically-supervised skin care, administered by qualified staff, provides patients with safe, clinically-tested treatments that are proven effective.

Medically-supervised skin care offers patients expert guidance in selecting appropriate products for home use -- products with stronger, more effective ingredients than are available over-the-counter.

Medically-supervised skin care has become part of today's plastic surgery practice. Among members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), 49%* employ a skin care specialist on staff. An additional 9%* of ASAPS members contract the services of an independent skin care specialist.
