AMWC Americas Preview

Practical Techniques with an International Flair


Building on the success of its inaugural event, AMWC Americas is returning to Miami February 22-24, 2024 with a program that explores many subsectors of aesthetic and anti-aging medicine, incorporating a unique, international perspective on leading-edge nonsurgical treatments, minimally invasive surgical techniques and emerging evidence-based developments. All taught by leading experts from around the world who bring their unique perspectives from different regions and corners of the globe.

“Our biggest goal at AMWC Americas is to focus on practical techniques because this is what our multispecialty audience is looking for,” said Sheila Barbarino, MD, an oculoplastic and cosmetic surgeon, and an AWMC Americas Scientific Director. “They don’t want to hear about a specific device or product except how it fits within their techniques, approaches and methods. And that is what we are going to provide.”

Through a series of workshops, interactive programming, live demos and a thought-provoking keynote, you can expect to:

  • Uncover the art of the latest medical aesthetic and nonsurgical treatment strategies.
  •  Immerse yourself in science-backed integrative and anti-aging therapies.
  •  Dive into technique-focused presentations from award-winning Maverick speakers, followed by Ask Me Anything Q&A
  • Watch a face-off between the cannula and needle – featuring a live demo.
  •  Experience a live cadaver anatomy demo and discussion to level up your facial injectable safety skills.
  • And more! The program offers up to 17.5 CME/ACCME AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for physicians and 17.5 contact hours for nurses. All content is thoroughly vetted and carefully selected by a global Scientific Advisory Board.

Face of the Future

Rounding out the programming will be plenty of sessions delivering insights into upcoming trends, said Robyn Siperstein, MD, a dermatologist and AMWC Americas Scientific Director.

“We know the medical aesthetics profession is fast moving and that keeping up with it all can be a challenge,” Dr. Siperstein expressed. “That’s why we make sure to include plenty of sessions from innovators who can speak to emerging treatments and markets, and the latest evidencebased research and cutting-edge innovations.”

Some of the topics you can look forward to include:

  • Device-assisted drug delivery therapies – microneedling and beyond
  • Skin boosters
  • Regenerative aesthetics
  • R&D pipeline innovations
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) This is just a start – many sessions will also include live demonstrations and lively discussions!

With its deliberate focus on progressive techniques to advance your skills and outcomes, and a decidedly international flair, it’s no wonder that the inaugural AMWC Americas was an attendee favorite. According to survey results, attendee rated the following out of five stars*:

Make it Happen in The Magic City

As a global community at the crossroads of the Americas, Miami is the perfect venue for AMWC’s inclusive multi-national experience.

It is also an award-winning destination: Miami received top honors in TripAdvisor’s 2023 Best of the Best Awards in the categories of Best Overall Experience, Best Food and Most Popular.

And it’s easy to see why: Miami is a vibrant international destination, boasting stunning beaches, top-tier dining and retail experiences, and a thriving arts and cultural scene.


“AMWC 2023 was an outstanding conference, with amazing speakers and great expo. Dr. Noury blew my mind with his 3-point lip augmentation technique. The doctor, who showed new techniques in nonsurgical face lifting with PDO threads was a master, his explanations while doing the procedure were very thorough and easy to understand. The whole program was very well organized”.


“AMWC 2023 in Miami served as a powerful source of inspiration that led me to take action and apply for the Regenerative Medicine program at Wake Forest Medical School. Currently, I am pursuing an evening master’s degree in Translational Biotechnology in Regenerative Medicine while maintaining my professional practice. Undoubtedly, the regenerative track at this event has had a profound and transformative impact on my academic and professional journey.”


“‘An investment in knowledge pays the best interest,’ a quote by Benjamin Franklin is one that I refer to often. As an aesthetic nurse, I know this industry is forever growing and changing. Continuing your education is imperative when working in aesthetics. In February 2023, I attended the AMWC Conference in Miami. The conference met and went beyond all my expectations. There was such a variety of sessions that I could choose from, and the ones I attended were extremely informative. The speakers were fantastic and engaging with the attendees. AMWC has become top of my list for attending yearly now.”
