The Gallardo Ballroom of Makati Diamond Residences in Makati City was abuzz with expertise and insights during the 2023 Annual Philippine Academy of Cutaneous Surgery (PACS) Conference.

The morning session, led by esteemed PACS panelists, delved into a whole spectrum of topics, including hair transplantation, diagnostic approaches to hair and nail problems, dermatologic surgery techniques, and more.

An engaging lunch symposium enhanced the event’s dynamic sessions, covering topics such as facial rejuvenation, like how to achieve having “immortal eyes,” as discussed by Dr. Cyril Mitchel Agan, how to get that irresistible-skin glow, as discussed by Dr. Gisella Adasa, to weight management. Afternoon talks ranged from melasma to innovative skin diagnostics using ultrasound.

With a standout lineup and insightful discussions, attendees left with a treasure trove of practical insights to elevate their practices and serve the community.
