Have created a first of its kind ‘Virtual platform’ to enable aesthetic professionals access to world class continuing education and online learning. MyFaceMyBody is a member of the CPD Certification Service and has developed practical and informative workshops that have up to 70 CPD credits that will be presented at the Global Virtual Aesthetic Summit (GVAS).
The CPD Certification Service was established in 1996 as the leading independent CPD accreditation institution operating across industry sectors to complement the Continuing Professional Development policies of professional institutes and academic bodies. The CPD Certification Service provides support, advice and recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD principles.
If you are attending the GVAS conference you will receive a CPD evaluation form to fill out and submit to claim your credits. You will receive this via email after the event. This is applicable for everyone apart from the USA.
The importance of continued personal development in the Medical Industry has become a key focus within the Aesthetic Marketplace. It is essential that HCPs maintain a high standard of continued education to support their skills and development.
At GVAS we believe in providing the highest standard of education and have invested in ensuring we can deliver high level CPD / CME qualifying educational sessions.
GVAS is proud to now be a recognized provider and CPD accredited member in the UK. This means that our education has met the highest national and global standards for CPD accreditation, and is a recognized by many international medical bodies, to support the continued professional development for all our delegates.
To be awarded CPD accreditation points the healthcare professional MUST complete the feedback form. On receipt the CPD certificate will be dispatched
As GVAS is a Global conference, different regions have different accreditation formats. We continue to work with all to ensure that our education is recognized throughout the world.
To ensure revalidation within the UK, health care professionals must undertake a mandatory substantial number of hours of continued development. Depending on your specialty, this varies.
For Nurses this is 35 hours to be collected over 3 years, for Doctors and Dentists, this must be 150 hours collected over a 5-year period.
Although a proportion of this is self-reflective, by GVAS gaining CPD certification, it means that the presentations and education we provide have met the highest standard of education which is recognized in line with CME and Global standards.
To be awarded CPD accreditation points the HCP MUST complete the feedback form. On receipt the CPD certificate will be dispatched

Description: Due to rapid, ongoing progress, clinicians in aesthetic medicine are challenged to keep ahead of the curve with evolving techniques and an ever-increasing array of available products for aesthetic rejuvenation and remodeling. To conduct appropriate patient assessments and create individualized treatment plans that offer optimal results, these clinicians also need a thorough understanding of the effects of aging in the skin and deeper tissues as they relate to aesthetic rejuvenation and remodeling throughout the body. This activity will provide participants with a review of the anatomy and pathophysiology of aging; nuances of patient assessment; mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety of injectable biostimulatory soft tissue fillers and hyaluronic acid fillers; strategies for individualizing treatment based on anatomic assessment, patient goals, and agent characteristics; and advanced techniques for selecting appropriate combinations of agents for optimal aesthetic body rejuvenation and remodeling.Read More
