The 13th International Facial Nerve Symposium (IFNS) was held August 3 to August 6, 2017 in Los Angeles.
The IFNS is held every 4 years and brings together Facial Plastic Surgeons, Ear Nose and Throat Surgeons, Head and Neck surgeons as well as Facial Therapists. There were 500 people from all over the world in attendance.
I had the opportunity to meet therapists from Belgium, Brazil, France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain and of course the US, among other places. As a facial therapist these Symposia allow me to share ideas about how we treat the face with others who share a similar passion for their work.
The next International Facial Nerve Symposium will be held in Seoul, Korea in 2021.
