With the demand for aesthetic services multiplying worldwide, more and more doctors, nurses, and even dentists are looking into aesthetics training. Fortunately, organizations like The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS) have answered the call by creating both in-person and virtual aesthetic courses to help more medical professionals get trained in these minimally invasive, self-esteem-boosting procedures.
But even with AAAMS’s state-of-the-art online aesthetics training program, aesthetic practitioners might crave additional coursework, a chance to discuss new techniques with peers, and a place to learn about the latest technologies. And the best way to do all of the above is at an aesthetic medicine event or virtual conference, and 2021 has a list of Can’t-miss events.
Location: Miami Beach
Dates: April 29-May 3
Beautiful Miami Beach plays host to April’s The Aesthetic Meeting 2021. This conference will cover essential topics like achieving safe aesthetic surgical outcomes, using nonsurgical methods with surgical procedures, solutions for handling controversies, building an ethical work environment, and managing patient expectations.
From the clinical work to running a successful aesthetic practice, perhaps the most appealing sell for this conference is that its programs are available both in-person and virtually. In light of the pandemic, The Aesthetic Meeting will be taking every precaution to keep attendees (who are limited to 600) safe.
And to ensure attendees get as much as possible from the course, CME credits are available, including those attending virtually who can earn up to 31.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
Location: Las Vegas
Dates: July 8-11
Want to see what the future of aesthetics holds? Then consider flying to Las Vegas for a weekend in July when the Aesthetic Show occurs at The Wynn. The conference boasts 80 speakers covering everything from Facial Injectables (Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers) Treatment Demos to anti-aging medicines, Lasers, EBDs & Light-Based Technologies to Microneedling with Treatment Demos.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this convention is evolving to include both in-person and virtual programming, so no one needs to miss a minute. Both options promise to allow attendees to learn and earn CME credits.
As you might imagine, the word “show” in The Aesthetic Show refers to the many vendors who will also be on-sight, offering guests a front-row seat to look at all the latest products and tools available to aesthetic service providers. Rather than blindly order new products or devices, The Aesthetic Show will let curious practitioners test tools, scrutinize techniques, and ask questions in person while networking with peers from across the world.
Dates: March 26-28
The Canadian Aesthetics Expo 2021 will be entirely virtual. Still, while it lacks in-person networking, it promises to make up for top speakers who will demonstrate evidence-based practice techniques and the latest technology. That will look like sessions on:
- Mastering Lip Rejuvenation and Assessment, Demonstration, and Live Q&A
- The Future of Aesthetics: Exosomes and Stem Cell Therapies + Live Q&A
- The Effects and Uses of Botulinum Toxins with Demonstrations +Live Q&A
One specific point that this conference looks to tackle is a variety of beautification techniques and how to apply techniques to match different cultural ideals of beauty — something every aesthetic practitioner should be well-versed in.
Dates: March 14
If you can’t commit to more than one day of aesthetic events, consider the Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting. This meeting will be virtual and held in the Central Time Zone to accommodate as many people as possible.
Along with programmings like Fillers and Injectables Video Demos and Controversies and Outcomes in Face and Neck Rejuvenation, the program will allow time for open discussions with the experts so you can bring your questions directly to those in the know.
And to close out the action-packed day, the event will conclude with a Cosmetic Video Theater showing the latest techniques from leaders in the field.
Dates: November 4-7
If you can’t make it to Miami Beach in April, this event offers a second opportunity in November. And this is a big one. The conference promises 350+ presentations from 150 faculty members who will cover topics like injectables for the upper face and eyes and non-invasive body contouring.
The 3 ½ day program offers more than 31 hours of CME so practitioners can get the most out of the event. And even though this is an in-person conference, COVID-19 will be top of mind, and as a supplement, the conference is offering webinars for participants as well.
