Winner at the Aesthetic Awards 2017

6th December 2017 at 11:02 am

The ACE Group are delighted to have won the Aesthetic Awards 2017 Professional Initiative of the Year and would like to thank the board, the consensus group and all members in supporting us and voting for us to make this happen.

Although the ACE Group was established in 2010 and have been working away in the background, producing evidence-based, peer reviewed and internationally published guidelines, the website and membership has only been available for just over 12 months and in this short period of time, we currently have over 1,000 practitioners subscribed to the ACE Group making it the largest non-surgical aesthetic group in the UK. The forum has been an invaluable source of information for members and there are daily posts with members sharing information on the management of complications. At the moment, all the guidelines are being re-written and updated with the latest information and the board are working on producing e-learning modules and rolling out a national workshop.

Dr Martyn King is the Chair of the ACE Group and Sharon King a founder member.

BAS Conference, 18th May 2017

6th July 2017 at 1:57 pm

British Association of Sclerotherapists – Annual Conference

Date: 18th May 2017

Venue: Dorney Lake Conference Centre, Eton.


Dr Jean-Francois Uhl ,Vascular surgeon and Research Director, UNESCO Chair of Digital Anatomy, Paris, fascinated an audience of vascular surgeons and aesthetic doctors and nurses as he led them on an enlightening journey through the venous system, at the British Association of Sclerotherapists Conference on 18th May 2017. His enthusiasm for his subject was engaging, as he drew on an exceptional knowledge of leg vein anatomy and showed 3D images that were a revelation.

Delegates learnt from Mr Sudip Ray, Consultant Vascular Surgeon, about a new procedure for closing the main vein in the leg that causes varicose veins (usually either the great saphenous vein GSV or the small saphenous vein SSV or both), and discussed what can be achieved with this new ‘super glue’ treatment

Dr Martyn King, Aesthetic Physician and Chairperson, Aesthetic Complications Expert Group, explored new technologies that help find even the most elusive veins, including Accuvein, Veinlite and Venography and the new iPhone and Android Apps. Delegates tried out Accuvein at Q Technology’s exhibition stand.

There was much interest in the talk by Mr Philip Coleridge Smith (Consultant Vascular Surgeon, President of the BAS) on Sclerotherapy for ankles, feet, hands, arms, chest, and face. Many practitioners had questions about the effectiveness and risks of these treatments, and Philip’s experience was illuminating.

After lunch the audience had the opportunity to observe first hand two of the most experienced microsclerotherapists in the country (Julie Halford RGN and Claire Judge RGN) demonstrating their technique and sharing tips to an interested and receptive audience. One delegate commented that the opportunity to observe ‘experts at work’ was invaluable, and that she picked up lots of skilled information and tips.

In a parallel session Mr Coleridge Smith demonstrated foam sclerotherapy treatment using ultrasound, which generated considerable interest from practitioners

Dr Martyn King gave an overview of how he himself has marketed his growing and highly successful aesthetic clinic, Cosmedic Skin Clinic. “The biggest mistake in marketing “, he said, “is forgetting to do an

ything!! Being too busy is not an excuse”. As well as sharing top tips for branding, advertising and promotion, he emphasised the importance of excellent customer service and making clients feel valued. “It costs far less to retain a customer than to gain a new one” he said.

The superb venue, Dorney Lake Conference Centre, was praised by all. Delegates loved the view over the Eton Rowing Lake, where the Olympic rowing events were held in 2012, and the rain held off just long enough to lunch outside on the balcony overlooking the lake. Several eights were being put through their punishing paces during the afternoon, making a relaxing diversion!

BAS CPD certificates are accepted by GMC and NMC as evidence for appraisal and revalidation.

Quotes from  delegates:

“Excellent meeting. Great location, accessible to airport. My practice will change on the back of meeting content.” Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Belfast

“Really enjoyable collegial meeting” Consultant Vascular Surgeon, St James’ Hospital Dublin

“Very informative content, high quality speakers, good mixture of content for both medical + nursing staff.  Superb venue.” Aesthetic Nurse


The event was sponsored by STD Pharmaceuticals, Credenhill and Daylong, Q Medical Technologies, BSN Medical and Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance.

Sharon and I have been attending this conference for the last few years in Paris. Some interesting lectures and good to see what new products, techniques and treatments are available throughout Europe. I think the highlight for Sharon was the Louis Vuitton shop on Champs-Élysées‎.

A quick thank you to the organisers of Aesthetic Medicine Live which Sharon and I both really enjoyed attending this year. Some great speakers, very well organised, really good to catch up with so many old friends and colleagues and some of our favourite exhibitors. Sharon and I Chaired the Aesthetic Tips and Tricks session in the main conference room on the Saturday and I also did a presentation on the treatment of pigmentation with Succinic Acid for Hyalual on the Cosmedic Pharmacy stand (well done to Iain for a very impressive stand this year!). Can’t leave out the Gala Dinner on the Saturday night where we stayed up dancing until late and I won the award for Best Dancer! Thanks again Vicky, David and Mark and would be our pleasure to Chair a session next year for you!

A Combined Effort

31st May 2016 at 7:51 pm

A nice little article that I contributed to in Aesthetics, April 2016. Many of our patients come to clinic asking about a specific treatment, although often there are different options and starting with lifting and volumising, improving skin quality and then brightening and smoothing the skin to give the 10 years younger look!

The Management of Delayed Onset Nodules

DONs 1 DONs 2 DONs 3 DONs 4 DONs 5I believe this is the finest work produced by the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group. The management of nodules, lumps, granulomas or biofilms as a result of injectable treatments is problematic and there is very little information on how to deal with them and such varied opinions! Finally, the ACE Group have taken all the best evidence and advice and formulated into a simple spreadsheet for all practitioners. Feel free to email me (martyn@cosmedic-clinic.co.uk) if you wish to receive the PDF document.

Galderma Oct 2015Dr Martyn King’s lecture on Management of Aesthetic Complications was very well received and had extremely positive feedback. Looking forward to taking the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group further and publishing all the latest peer reviewed, evidence based guidelines and creating the ACE Group website as well as looking at running regional meetings specifically on management of complications. The group is not for profit and has the ethos that no-one should be doing a procedure if they are unable to deal with the immediate consequences if something goes wrong!

Panel included Sharon King, Stephen Bassett, Patrick Treacey, Helena Collier and Mandy Luckman.
