PHRC Recap

The 11th Annual Professional Hair Removal Conference (PHRC), which was sponsored by the Society of Clinical and Medical Hair Removal (SCMHR), Candela®/Syneron®, Avante Laser Training Institute, Professional Program Insurance Brokerage (PPIB), Dectro International, Sciton Lasers, and Health & Harmony was held on May 4th - 6th, 2013. With 15 continuing education hours available, this year's PHRC experienced an increase in attendees from the 2009 conference held in Dallas.

Maintaining the high caliber of insightful education on professional hair removal that PHRC is known for, this year's speakers covered a variety of topics relevant to their profession. Magnanimously, attendees were pleased with the detail and knowledge bestowed upon them from the conference coordinators and speakers.PHRC-recap
