The exhibit hall included representatives from many laser companies, marketing companies, and skin care product manufacturers. The highlight was The Aesthetic Awards held on Saturday night hosted by Dr. Andrew Ordon of the television show The Doctors. While A E Skin did not win an award, Dr. Alex was honored to be nominated for multiple awards including Best Aesthetic Practice.
