AAMEP Members and Guests,
On behalf of the officers at AAMEP we would like to thank you for your support. We have prepared a very exciting program with interesting presentations and live demonstrations. We are confident you will find the information educational, stimulating, and FUN!
We are proud to offer 9.5 CE’s and CME’s for attending the 7th Annual AAMEP conference. We wish you great success in your medical esthetic practices.
On a side note:
We are looking to fill the position for the State Chairman for your state.
In light of what is going on all over the country with the Dermatology community trying to inhibit and prohibit our practice of esthetics by their attempts to introduce legislation (to limit and restrict), we need now more than ever to have active participants and responsible communicators.
We are asking for your commitment to your organization to assist and work with your fellow members to strengthen and nurture our organization for the good of all members.
This will not take up much of your time; only a few hours per month to keep abreast of any new bills that may have been introduced to your House of Representatives and State Senate. You will have direct communication with your Regional Director and President of AAMEP.
Opportunities for involvement are greatly welcomed. Your energy and presence are needed in committees, Workgroups, and Task Forces. The AAMEP board of Directors is here to serve you. Our continued goal is to implement state and national coalitions to collectively address priority Association issues: legislative changes, the scope of practice, membership recruitment, malpractice insurance needs, and more. Please let us know your interest.

Sasha Parker: The Many Amazing Uses of PRP -Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in Europe with great success in clinical practice since the late 1980’s. Initially used to enhance wound healing in many specialties, it’s emergence into the aesthetic/cosmetic arena for rejuvenation of skin started in 2004. The Skin rejuvenation technique has been used since 2004 in Europe, Asia, and South America. Patients have seen all around improvement in skin texture, pigmentation disorders, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, acne, stretch marks, and hair loss to name a few. Studies show that PRP, when done properly, has the ability to increase collagen deposition and remodeling which can persist over a 12 month period. The term autologous means that the source of origin is the patient’s own body and because of this is desirable to many patients who may desire a natural type treatment.
