“When I first started aesthetics back in 2005 I attended large group courses on topics such as laser and injectables. Some were good, some were not so good. What usually failed the most was the hands-on opportunities in these large venues. It’s hard to keep that organized with a big group, coordinate models, have everything flow smoothly, and get everyone comfortable with new skills. Once I switched over to small group and even individual trainings my skills skyrocketed. At Renew, we offer small group training to create a truly “boutique” experience for our attendees.” Dr. Lisa Vuich
