The ACE Group are delighted to have won the Aesthetic Awards 2017 Professional Initiative of the Year and would like to thank the board, the consensus group and all members in supporting us and voting for us to make this happen.

Although the ACE Group was established in 2010 and have been working away in the background, producing evidence-based, peer reviewed and internationally published guidelines, the website and membership has only been available for just over 12 months and in this short period of time, we currently have over 1,000 practitioners subscribed to the ACE Group making it the largest non-surgical aesthetic group in the UK. The forum has been an invaluable source of information for members and there are daily posts with members sharing information on the management of complications. At the moment, all the guidelines are being re-written and updated with the latest information and the board are working on producing e-learning modules and rolling out a national workshop. We look forward to 2018 and value any opinions from members. We would also encourage all members to report any complications via the website so that manufacturers, the industry and the general public can be better informed on the safety and risk when undertaking cosmetic procedures.

Thanks again to everyone who voted for us!
