Medical Skincare at 20: The Annual Meeting of the Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists

Group Explores the Latest Options for Retaining a Youthful, Natural Appearance

San Francisco, CA (April 24, 2014) – The Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists (SPSSCS), a non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of clinical skills to provide quality skin care, will be exploring the newest and best options in the field at their 20th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA,  April 24-26.

“Medical skincare involves much more than facials or other treatments you would find in a typical spa or beauty salon” said Abbey Helton, BSN, RN C, CPSN, current president of the organization. “Because our membership is restricted to registered nurses, licensed practical nurses or licensed skin care professionals practicing under the direct supervision of a board certified or eligible plastic surgeon, it’s important that our educational program covers a wide range of needs from product safety to the latest advancements in stem cells.”

“Our program is designed to include both clinical and business topics,” said president-elect and program chair, Elena Reyes, RMA, RST. “Many of our members have a wide range of educational needs; clinical expertise, business knowledge and marketing are just a few. This year’s program is designed to meet these needs, offering everything from live peel demonstrations and panels on Skin of Color to Successful Strategies for Integrating Skin Care (into a surgical practice) and Branding and Social Media Strategy for a Successful Aesthetics Practice.”
