CCR 2023 – First-class education and networking

19-20 October 2023
London, UK
Holly Carver, Deputy Editor, Aesthetics Media.

October saw the return of the UK’s largest medical aesthetics conference – CCR; this year marked its 10-year anniversary. For the last decade, CCR has strived to share knowledge, connect all areas of the aesthetics specialty, promote high standards and drive best practice – and this instalment did not disappoint. CCR 2023 welcomed more than 3800 delegates, over 140 exhibitors and 120 plus speakers to the ExCeL in London, making it the busiest CCR to date. Pharmaceutical company Galderma returned as Headline Sponsor for the third year in a row, delivering unmissable new insights and live demonstrations. The Aesthetics Arena was the go-to place for independent educational content.

Highlights of Day 1 included a live demonstration from Dr Raul Cetto and Professor Francesco Bernardini treating the eyes and lips; as well as a new Research Round-up where five professionals took to the stage to discuss their latest research and clinical trials from combatting dark circles to regenerative medicine.


On Day 2, Dr Zainab Al-Mukhtar and Mr Dalvi Humzah noted the key developments of using ultrasound in aesthetic practice; Alexandra Mills and Professor Syed Haq provided an introduction to polynucleotides; and Dr Sophie Shotter performed a live demonstration of a male full-face rejuvenation.


The Innovation Stage delivered in-depth guidance for developing your clinic offering using devices through 30-minute workshops and live demos. Session highlights included How to Prevent Ageing with Non-Invasive ‘Facelift’ EMFACE with BTL Aesthetics, Safely Treating Skin of Colour with CO2 Laser & Energy-Based Devices with Cutera, and Imposter Syndrome: Me and My First Laser with Lynton Lasers.


The industry’s top brands showcased the latest techniques in one-hour live treatment demonstrations at the Symposium Stage. Highlights from the two days included Understanding Exosomes in Aesthetics by Dermapenworld and Introducing AviClear – The Future of Acne Treatment by Cutera.


As well as unmatched clinical talks, CCR provided delegates with business education from leading clinic service providers and established business owners at the In Practice Theatre, sponsored by SkinCeuticals.


The first day kicked off with a morning dedicated to Getting Started in Aesthetics, featuring talks from Dr Tristan Mehta, Dr Emily Mehta, Dr Marcus Mehta, Natalie Haswell and Dr Mariam Michail. Other highlights included an update on the Government’s proposed licensing scheme, fraud and cybercrime awareness, and a panel discussion on women in business.


The second day focused on prioritising patient care, bringing your business to the forefront and marketing to diverse patients. The theatre closed with

the launch of a new concept in aesthetic medicine: Gloves Off by Aesthetics! Featuring Dr Steven Land, Dr Catherine Fairris, Sharon Bennett and Shannon

Kilgariff, the session provided the opportunity for those in the aesthetics specialty to watch industry leaders debate, as well as discuss and engage with the most controversial and trending topics in aesthetic medicine.


This year saw the introduction of a new feature and concept to CCR – the Medical Longevity Summit. Curated alongside Dr Mayoni Gooneratne, the two-day agenda focused on how to promote a healthier and longer health span for patients, while

enhancing aesthetic outcomes by utilising functional, integrative, regenerative, lifestyle and wellness treatment approaches. Sessions included How to Integrate Testing Services into Practice for Enhancing Patient Health and Results with Dr Indra Barathan; How to Introduce Supplements into Your Clinic with Tracy Dennison; Supporting Patient Health and Wellbeing Through Weight Loss Programmes and How to Implement into Practice with Dr Kam Lally.


Dr Tapan Patel returned to host an exclusive masterclass. Over the course of Day 1, 80 delegates got to learn best practices for taking a patient from consultation to aftercare, as well as witness two unmissable live treatment demonstrations by Dr Patel himself.


On Day 2, Dr Raul Cetto and Professor Francesco Bernardini held a masterclass guiding delegates through the comprehensive assessment and treatment of the eyes and lips using dermal fillers. Attendees watched live demonstrations and received hands-on practical training.


The official CCR Charity After Party returned for the second year running, taking place at the Trinity Bouy Wharf. Hosted alongside Dr Tapan Patel, the event once again raised money for The Childhood Trust Charity. Over £23,000 was raised for the charity in ticket sales alone. Attendees enjoyed Indian fusion food, drinks, Indian dancers, a saxophonist, and a DJ playing party classics into the late hours of the night. Dr Tapan Patel said, “The evening was a wonderful way to get together, network, celebrate and give back.


I would like to personally thank gold sponsors BTL Aesthetics and Sinclair, as well as silver sponsors Asclepion Laser Technologies, Cutera, Hamilton Fraser, and Lira Clinical for their support of the event. This generosity will directly help hundreds of children in London living in poverty.”
