Message from the President
Dear Fellows, Members and Colleagues,
Welcome to the autumn edition of the Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine newsletter.
The Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicineis pleased to advise that the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is now advocating for GP prescribing rights for Isotretinoin so that GPs can treat patients with severe acne within the general practice setting.
ACAM strongly endorses and supports this move of the RACGP.
2015 sees many changes to the landscape of Cosmetic Medicine. This newsletter has an opinion piece from Dr Gabi Caswell, president of the Cosmetic Physicians Society regarding the use of S4 medications by dentists.
