The webinar, premiered worldwide for over 1,200 participants, is the latest event of the Academy, whose mission is to provide the highest quality education on the science of ageing.

Moderated by IMCAS Academy Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Dominique Du Cresta, the Webinar brings together a diverse team of renowned speakers from around the world. Mary Kay, Director of Global Cosmetics Innovation and Research, Dr. Michelle Hines, began the webinar with a review of chemical peelings and then joined the experts to discuss various topics related to the range of issues on the event's agenda. Topics included the eternal question of whether or not to exfoliate, as well as different types of peeling, peeling for darker skin types, the use of new and innovative ingredients, and the dangers of peeling for people with different skin diseases. The speakers also shared tips on how to prolong the benefits of peeling after treatment. The session ended with a rich Q&A panel chaired by Dr. Uliana Gout, M.D. Next to Dr. Hines, the speakers included dermatologists: Dr. Foteini Bageorgou, Dr. Marina Landau and Dr. Mukta Sachdev.

"Women want to have impeccable skin, regardless of age or place in the world," said Dr. Hines. - Today, chemical peelings are a popular skin rejuvenation and renewal treatment. Professional and homemade scrubs offer different experiences and benefits. Because there are many options available, education and awareness are important to make the best choice. Mary Kay was happy to award a grant for further education and research in this area.

"I would like to highlight the dynamic and growing development of our diverse community," said Dr Du Crest. - We have more than 28,000 doctors, and after the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has grown enormously. Outside of our Congress we offer webinars, sometimes even twice a week, to create opportunities for doctors, dermatologists and beauty service providers around the world to meet and share knowledge, experience and answer questions asked by the industry without having to travel or leave home or office. Our e-learning platform includes hundreds of clinical cases, numerous blog posts, more than 40 webinars a year and thousands of videos for industry professionals who can watch on-demand to enrich their knowledge.

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