SkinInc.com: How can medical spa professionals and esthetic physicians work with the PAC to ensure better service for their clients?

Dr. Sykes: The coalition is committed to promoting the highest level of professional care of cosmetic medicine to their patients. This commitment includes educating patients on the training and experience levels patients should demand of their provider, appropriate locations for treatment under the supervision of a physician working within their scope of training and providing information about which treatments work and are safe.

We want to help patients see through the barrage of industry marketing so they can select which treatments are best for them. By promoting the safe use of industry products and appropriate training pathways, the coalition will ultimately benefit those companies that provide safe and effective products by enhancing patient satisfaction.
