Welcome word - Andrea Sbarbati

Aesthetic, regenerative and anti-aging medicine are characterized by a rapid
technological development and involve the introduction of always new therapeutic methods, and the preparation in this field at university level is always insufficient. For this reason, the need for continuous training is born through the confrontation between clinicians, firms and researchers.

The positive experience of Confestetis 2018 has made us propose for 2019 also this pleasant meeting in Iaşi, particularly characterized by academic friendship. We want the second edition to have the same fundamental landmarks: internationality, interdisciplinary, openness to innovative themes and a high scientific level of participants.

The value of this approach based on the direct relationship of the protagonists was demonstrated by the scientific collaborations born after the first edition which, in several cases, materialized through technological innovation and through profile publications.

Next, Confestetis wants to be a technological and scientific acceleration point
between experts who meet in an extremely favorable context for the exchange of ideas.

During the first edition was introduced a series of novelties not often encountered in the aesthetic medical congresses. Firstly, the courses on corpses that allowed participants to acquire anatomical knowledge and relate them to the injection and surgical techniques. Important was the space dedicated to Live demos, in which specialist practitioners and companies in the field had the opportunity to demonstrate directly on the patient innovative and personalised treatment techniques. For these novelties, we must especially thank the Fix Media Organizer.

Confestetis 2018 was a relevant moment in the development of topics such as filler, cellulitis, traction wires, laser technology and bio-stimulation technologies. Clearly, relevance was the contribution, in the theme of liposuction, fat graft and the techniques for the processing of injectable tissues of the Academy del Lippofiling.

For the first time, during the conference's work, the master's degree in regenerative and anti-aging aesthetic Medicine of the University of Verona will be presented.
Confestetis will also be the first presentation space for the new European Aesthetic Medicine Association CREMRA.

Both events aim to be high-level international scientific moments, which will provide opportunities for work and discussion focused on topics of interest.

In conclusion, Confestetis 2019 aims to expand to excellence research in tissue
rejuvenation, confirming its role as a bridge between the various specialties and proposing itself as an updated and confrontation event in a panorama of Aesthetic and anti-aging medicine.
