IBSA Derma envisions Aesthetic Medicine as a realm that enhances the uniqueness and preserves the beauty of each individual. Therefore, the dermoaesthetic division of IBSA Iberia facilitated the gathering of professionals and experts to discuss the angles and challenges it considers essential regarding ethics in Aesthetic Medicine:

"We want aesthetic medicine to focus on the safety and well-being of the patient. Professionals must safeguard the health, safety, and uniqueness of patients, always acting ethically. To achieve this goal, we need to collaborate strictly within medical professionals and scientific societies" commented Jordi Alorda, director of the IBSA Derma in Spain and Portugal.
