Candela events around the world
At the end of September, our EMEA Candela team held its 6th Academy at A. Roma Lifestyle Hotel, one of the most idyllic hotels in Rome, Italy. This annual, two-day event was attended by over 200 physicians representing more than 30 countries in the region.
Candela Academy called “ One of the best learning opportunities of the year”
There were many things which set the Candela Academy apart from other industry events. While it was organized by Candela, the event’s content is exclusively directed at and presented by experienced, innovative plastic surgeons, dermatologists, gynecologists, aesthetic and general practitioners, and primary care physicians who all convened at the Academy to share their expertise, including best practices and patient results. A particularly interesting aspect of the Academy was the diversity of presentations and speakers who covered a wide range of educational topics designed to help others expand their offerings, treat more indications and improve patient outcomes. Handson training, practical education and tips and tricks, were presented to help attendees get the most out of their Candela devices, such as the PicoWay®, CO2RE® Intima, Vbeam® Prima, and Profound® platforms.
It was an interactive forum marked by robust discussions. As part of the event, clinical papers and patient cases were also discussed, and solutions brainstormed. “A physician from one specialty might approach a challenge completely differently than a physician from a different specialty,” says Robert Fielitz, VP of EMEA Distributors. “When they brainstorm together, you can see the buzzing excitement in the room, as physicians may discover an out-of-thebox approach to treating a case. It’s why some attendees call this event their global physician think tank.”
In addition to the dynamic clinical presentations, Candela offered a session on marketing and social media best practices, geared toward helping clinicians market themselves in this increasingly social world. “Social media is having a huge impact on the way physicians market their practice today,” says Mr. Fielitz. “Learning something new that they can bring back to their practice and put into use, is invaluable. It’s just one of the many ways Candela’s educational programs add value to physician practices.”
The Academy continues to be an influential and dynamic event which offers access to leading physicians from various specialties, who all consider this their must-attend, best learning opportunity of the year. Ready to attend the next Candela Academy? Join us in September 2020 in Rome, Italy and remember to reserve your spot early. While we can’t give too many secrets away just yet, it’ll surely be the memorable learning event of the year! For more information, email email@example.com
Our Asia Pacific region participated in many industry events during the second half of the year. Significant conferences included the Korean Dermatological Association meeting in Korea, The Australasian Society of Dermatologist symposium in Australia, and the China Dermatological Association conference in China. Additionally, multiple Candela Academies and Workshops were held to enrich users with new clinical knowledge. On September 1st, we held the largest Candela event in Japan, as a way to celebrate our 30-year anniversary of Candela’s incorporation in Japan. With over 500 participants joining us, this unique event provided a way for many of our top KOL’s to share their experiences and insights, as well as the changes they have seen over the past 30 years.
On September 6th, a group of customers also joined a VIP clinical workshop in Hong Kong, where the new PicoWay® 730nm and Resolve Fusion™ 532nm handpieces were introduced. Customers were able to try the new handpieces, as well as provide insights on patient needs. The Candela North American team had a strong line-up with several Aesthetic Clinical Expert (ACE) Symposiums. ACE events were held on September 8th in New York City, November 9th in Dallas, Texas, and December 14th in Orlando, Florida. The ACE Symposiums provide a forum for learning, sharing of best practices and networking. The full Candela product portfolio was showcased, live demonstrations were performed, and multiple podium speaker presentations were provided—delivering valuable insights and engaging clinical demonstrations.
In November, we hosted our second annual CURE+ event. CURE+ is a fully online interactive learning experience featuring our Profound® and CO2RE®. This pure peer-to-peer event allowed for open and engaging discussions and consisted of a panel of 5 user experts who shared their tips, tricks and treatment best practices with a group of over 150 practitioners from around the world. Attendees walked away with an in-depth knowledge of the devices, as well as treatment approaches for multiple indications.
Additionally, we held 6 Profound® Academies and a Body mastery course that included training on our UltraShape Power® and VelaShape® III platforms. This course introduced innovative body treatments using the Profound, Nordlys™ and GentleMax Pro® systems.
