The Polish Society for Aesthetic Dermatology (PSAD) was established in 1999 on the initiative of a few dermatologists with a long-standing interest in aesthetic skin problems. Today we are perceived as a strong body of specialists dealing with dermatology and aesthetic medicine, as well as anti-aging prevention. Most of us run private clinics, where treatments are performed using the most modern, internationally acknowledged methods of treatment.
Since the beginning, we have been very active in national and international forums.
For years, we have represented Poland in the European Society of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dermatology (ESCAD). In 2022 we started a scientific partnership with IMCAS (International Master Course on Aging Science), in 2023 we were invited to be a scientific partner of AMWC.
We are invited as lecturers at international congresses. We actively participate in prestigious conferences and workshops, and we pass on the knowledge and experience we have gained during our training courses.
The Polish Society for Aesthetic Dermatology organizes international congresses, scientific conferences, symposia and workshops. PSAD is one of the founders of the Anti-Aging Medicine Foundation.
Many years of training experience have resulted in the creation of the International Anti-Aging Medicine Training Center in Warsaw under the auspices of the Foundation. The Center’s 2-year aesthetic medicine education program, implemented since 2009, includes hundreds of hours of theoretical classes and hands-on workshops. Graduates of the course are prepared to work independently and run their practices. An additional one-year educational program in anti-aging medicine prepares doctors for a multidisciplinary approach to preventing aging and delaying the development of aging-related diseases.
