Events & Education: Generational aesthetics to headline The Aesthetic Show 2019

Gone are the days when middle-age and older patients dominated demand for aesthetic procedures. Today’s thriving aesthetic practices are multigenerational. And, thanks to social media and other influences, aesthetic industry revenue is driven by the desires of millennials and even younger patients wanting to not only tweak their looks, but also prevent visible aging.

The need for aesthetic providers to understand generational differences is so vital for modern-day practice success that The Aesthetic Show leadership not only coined the term “Generational Aesthetics,” they are highlighting the theme in a Keynote Address featuring Kim Lear.

Generational expert and a millennial herself, Ms. Lear will enlighten attendees about what shapes generational attitudes, generational differentiators, cultural influences impacting generations, generational trends and more.

Once Ms. Lear sets the stage with this intimate look at generational nuances, an expert panel of aesthetic providers will bring the topic to life with real-world practice experiences.

Plastic surgeon Andrew Ordon, MD, will lead this panel discussion featuring Erez Dayan, MD (plastic surgeon; Reno, Nev.), Lara Devgan, MD (plastic surgeon; New York City, N.Y.), Jason Emer, MD (dermatologist; West Hollywood, Calif.), Lori Robertson, MSN, FNP-C (Brea, Calif.) and Leif Rogers, MD (plastic surgeon; Beverly Hills, Calif.). The panel will share best practices for meeting the demands and desires of today’s baby boomers, millennials, Gen X-ers and the upcoming Generation Z, and help define how age and generational attitudes impact cosmetic demands, desires, attitudes and expectations.

The new reality is that beauty is in the eye of the generational beholder.

Those attending the Generational Aesthetics Keynote Address will return to their practices armed with the tools and insights to create or grow their multigenerational practice. They’ll gain a better understanding of how to market to consumers of different generations, how to offer procedures that appeal broadly to different generations, and how to convert and keep them as patients.

For 13 years, The Aesthetic Show has led the way as the most important and influential event dedicated to the rapidly expanding field of aesthetic medicine.
