1st NETWORK Workshop in Saudi Arabia
With the kind support of the national NETWORK agent Dr. Ahmed Elnagar of PanPharma, the NETWORK was able to hold its first workshop in Saudi Arabia on 27 May 2009 in the “Four Seasons” in Riyadh.
The NETWORK team, consisting of Dr. Franz Hasengschwandtner, Dr. Alida Harb Raide (national representative of Saudi Arabia) and Ulrich Bunzek, speaker of the NETWORK, gave the participants an introduction to injection lipolysis therapy and to the NETWORK. Dr. Elnagar and his team presented a workshop that was prepared to a very high level and took care of smooth running of the event.
With 33 participants, the workshop met with a broad response, especially among the country’s leading practitioners in aesthetic medicine. One reason for the strong interest was that all the participants wished to be informed of the major differences between mesotherapy and injection lipolysis, which after the workshop they confirmed as clearly existing.
The participants were particular impressed by the scientific foundation of the NETWORK therapy, which enabled answers to be given to many of their previously unresolved questions. In discussions immediately after the workshop, I received the feedback from many participants that thanks to the workshop, it had now become clear to them why their attempts at lipolysis with the use of mesotherapy had previously proved unsuccessful.
The highly interested, highly motivated participants continued to discuss their newly acquired insights long after the workshop was over, even though some of them were already expected back in their clinics.
A clear indication for the success of the workshop is that the next one is already scheduled to take place in Riyadh on 24 September 2009, and the first inquiries have already been received.
