The next best thing are blogs like this

Keep reading to learn about the most important industry shifts outlined on this years edition of AMWC Monaco – Aesthetics & Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress. We’ll take an in-depth look at these new trends, and how they can improve patient satisfaction, boost your expertise, and expand your offerings.

Key Takeaways

  • The AMWC Monaco 2024 conference is a premier event that covers the latest aesthetic trends and techniques.
  • The field of regenerative aesthetics leverages advanced therapies like stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and exosomes to unlock the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation capabilities.
  • Other notable trends are prejuvenation, biostimulatory fillers, precise muscle sculpting techniques, and plasma devices for controlled skin tightening and textural improvement.
  • The overarching theme in 2024 aesthetics is using the body’s regenerative potential through cutting-edge, minimally invasive methodologies designed to deliver natural-looking results with optimal safety profiles.

The AMWC conference, supervised by the Aesthetic Multispecialty Society (AMS), gathers over 12,000 industry experts to share their groundbreaking research and explore the next aesthetic trend that will define the year ahead. This year’s findings are showing a notable shift towards minimally invasive procedures

According to a study published in the Annals of Plastic Surgery, trends among surgeons across the United States have shifted significantly toward minimally invasive techniques over more invasive approaches.

This aligns with the overarching theme we’re seeing at the 22nd AMWC: a focus on cutting-edge, minimally invasive solutions that can achieve natural-looking transformation.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular techniques used in 2024:

Full Face Beautification

One of the latest aesthetic trends and the central topic of AMWC Monaco 2024 is the growing emphasis on a holistic, full-face approach to beautification

Rather than addressing individual areas or concerns in isolation, clinicians are advocating for a comprehensive strategy that harmonizes various treatments to achieve overall facial rejuvenation and enhancement. The full-face beautification approach often involves a combination of the following procedures:

1. Neurotoxin Injections: Laying the Groundwork

The process typically starts with neurotoxin injections. This initial phase focuses on relaxing targeted facial muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles and prevent the accentuation of facial lines. Injections establish a more rested and open appearance, which sets an ideal stage for the next parts of the full face beautification. This foundational step ensures that subsequent treatments can be applied to a more balanced and receptive facial structure.

2. Dermal Fillers

After addressing dynamic lines, clinicians usually move on to dermal fillers to restore volume and facial contour. By building on the relaxed foundation provided by neurotoxins, fillers bring far better results for the patient’s facial harmony, which is in line with the trend of a natural look in 2024. 

3. Energy-Based Rejuvenation

After the structural enhancements, energy-based rejuvenation is used to improve skin quality. Recent innovations, particularly in RF micro-needling, have broadened treatment applications to include active acne management and the reduction of sebaceous gland size, offering a more versatile approach suitable for a diverse patient demographic.

4. Resurfacing Approaches

The final touches involve resurfacing techniques, such as chemical peels, and the use of topical growth factors like M-SEQNC or exosomes like EXOJUV. This last step is about perfecting the outcome, focusing on achieving a refreshed and youthful skin appearance that showcases the structural enhancements in their best light.

Regenerative Aesthetics

Regenerative aesthetics (RA) is the newest cosmetic procedure trend, taking one of the center stages at this year’s edition of AMWC Monaco conference. It’s a subfield based on the regenerative medicine (RM). This field leverages techniques such as stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and the use of exosomes like EXOJUV to unlock the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation capabilities.

These methods aim to improve skin quality, elasticity, and volume, reduce wrinkles, and even stimulate hair growth by enhancing cellular repair and growth. Additionally, according to recent studies, RA mainly helps solve the underlying causes of aging, rather than just its symptoms.

1. Stem Cell Therapy

The remarkable capacity of stem cells to continuously renew themselves and transform into various specialized cell types lies at the core of their potential in regenerative aesthetics and cosmetic dermatology.

This advanced approach holds significant potential for medical professionals in various areas:

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) and bone marrow-derived stem cells can stimulate collagen production, improve elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by differentiating into new skin cells.
  • Hair Restoration: Autologous stem cells from adipose tissue or blood can promote hair growth and treat conditions like androgenetic alopecia by regenerating hair follicle cells.
  • Facial Contouring/Volumization: When integrated with dermal fillers or fat grafting, stem cells can improve longevity and natural integration of volume augmentation procedures.
  • Wound Healing: Clinical studies have shown that some stem cell-based products minimize side effects after laser procedures and speed up wound healing.

The process typically involves:

  • Extracting stem cells (commonly ADSCs via liposuction)
  • Processing and concentrating the stem cell population
  • Administering stem cells through injections, topical application, or combination with other products like M-SEQNC range from SKINSEQNC.

The applications of stem cells in aesthetics have brought promising initial results, but the full scope of their potential has yet to be unlocked.

2. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

Like stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy taps into the body’s innate healing mechanisms. By concentrating the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, which contains a potent cocktail of growth factors and regenerative cytokines, PRP offers a minimally invasive way to kickstart cellular rejuvenation processes from within.

The applications are wide-ranging: from initiating rejuvenation and improving skin quality to treating alopecia and enhancing volumizing procedures. 

PRP can stimulate new collagen formation, promote angiogenesis for better blood supply, and start the overall tissue remodeling.

The main benefit is the extremely low risk of immune rejection due to the use of the patient’s own blood.

3. Exosomes

Exosomes are nanoscale extracellular vesicles that act as intercellular communicators, carrying proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids between cells. In aesthetic medicine, exosomes are used for their potential in skin rejuvenation, hair growth, and overall tissue regeneration thanks to their ability to stimulate cellular processes and promote healing. 

A study published in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery confirms the scientific basis of exosome regenerative potential.


Prejuvenation, trend that will also be discussed in IMCAS conference in April, represents a paradigm shift in aesthetic medicine, highlighting a preventative rather than a corrective approach to aging. This trend, predominantly driven by Generation Z, emphasizes early intervention to maintain a youthful appearance and delay the aging process. 

It focuses on early interventions like neuromodulators and dermal fillers to preserve a younger look and sidestep the need for more invasive surgeries later. Younger women are increasingly turning to these non-surgical options in their 20s, aiming to forestall the development of wrinkles and skin sagging through these preventative measures.

Biostimulatory Fillers 

Another notable spotted on AMWC Monaco 2024 is the use of biostimulatory fillers like RADIESSE®and SCULPTRA®. Unlike traditional HA fillers, these stimulate gradual collagen production for a subtle, natural-looking enhancement over time. 

The common trend is to use the body’s regenerative capabilities through state-of-the-art methods that minimize invasiveness while maximizing natural-looking results.


Our industry is constantly growing and improving through a large number of aesthetic trends right now. It’s crucial to stay current with new trends if you want to keep up with changing patient demands and remain competitive. One of the way to do so is to attend the important industry conferences like AMWC Monaco 2024, IMCAS, etc.
