The webinar, which debuted worldwide to over 1,200 attendees, is just the latest event from the Academy whose mission is to provide leading education on the topic of aging science.

The webinar, moderated by IMCAS Academy Executive Editor, Dr. Dominique Du Crest, featured a renowned and diverse lineup of speakers from around the world. Mary Kay’s Dr. Michelle Hines, Director of Global Cosmetic Research & Innovation, kicked off the webinar with an overview of chemical peels and then joined experts to discuss various subjects surrounding a number of topics on the agenda. The topics covered the existential question of whether ‘to peel or not to peel’, different types of peels, peeling for darker skin types, the use of new and innovative ingredients, the dangers of peeling for patients with various skin diseases, with speakers also sharing tips on how to prolong the benefits of peeling post-procedure. The session concluded with a robust Q&A panel chaired by Dr. Uliana Gout, M.D. Alongside Dr. Hines, the featured speakers included Dr. Foteini Bageorgou, Dermatologist; Dr. Marina Landau, Dermatologist; and Dr. Mukta Sachdev, Dermatologist.

“Women of any age, anywhere in the world, want flawless skin,” said Dr. Hines. “Currently, chemical peels are a popular skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing procedure. Professional and at-home peels offer different experiences and benefits. As there are many options available, education and awareness are important to make the best choice. Mary Kay was thrilled to provide a grant to further education and research on the topic.”

“I would like to underscore the dynamic and growing nature of our diverse community,” said Dr. Du Crest. “We have over 28,000 physician members, and with the outbreak of COVID-19, our community has expanded tremendously. Outside of our Congress, we offer webinars, sometimes twice a week, through which we create opportunities for doctors, physicians, dermatologists, and aestheticians all over the world to come together and share knowledge, expertise, and answer industry-related questions from their peers without having to travel or leave their home or office. Our e-Learning platform houses hundreds of clinical cases, numerous blog posts, over 40 webinars annually, and thousands of videos for industry professionals to be able to watch and enrich themselves on demand.”

The webinar was recorded and is available for viewing on the IMCAS Academy Library portal.

NextSense Emerges to Unlock Brain Health with Key Partners UCB, Heraeus, UC San Diego, and Emory University3.12.2021 18:00:00 EET | Press release

NextSense, the foundation of brain health, came out of stealth with an announcement made from the AES (American Epilepsy Society) Annual Meeting in Chicago, where NextSense and its partners are presenting the results of their research on seizure detection to peers in academia and industry for the first time.

The high cost of care and lack of comfort of these devices makes long-term and continuous monitoring nearly impossible. Not only are these data based on a single timeframe, they observe what is anything but an ordinary night’s sleep. And for anyone living with epilepsy, the unpredictability of seizures makes direct observation and high-quality data-gathering exceedingly rar
