Merz Aesthetics®, the world’s largest dedicated medical aesthetics business, announced today the launch of a new comprehensive educational ecosystem – MAX Merz Aesthetics Exchange. Rooted in trusted, science-based aesthetics expertise, the online platform offers an inclusive approach to professional development that transcends traditional boundaries, ensuring a transformative educational experience tailored to meet the evolving needs of health care professionals.

“Merz Aesthetics is driven by a desire to help people look and feel their best,” said Patrick Urban, President of Merz Aesthetics North America. “As a leader in the medical aesthetics space, we place significant emphasis on the engagement, education and support of healthcare professionals. The new MAX community helps us provide our health care partners with what they need to confidently enhance their skillset and grow their individual practices, ultimately helping advance all of aesthetic medicine.”

Uniting aesthetic health care professionals from across the United States to learn and share their experiences, the new multimedia and in-person platform serves as a unique aesthetics community. Health care professionals will have the opportunity to learn from one another through a variety of live and virtual events and immersive training.

MAX offers an array of content that fosters intellectual growth, skill development and lifelong learning.

“As a health care professional and business owner, having access to an on-demand global platform like MAX allows me to grow my network, learn from my peers and advance both my clinical and professional skills in one place at my convenience,” said Dr. Sheila Farhang, board-certified dermatologist and double-fellowship trained cosmetic surgeon.

The online platform is currently available in the United States and registration is free of charge. We invite health care professionals, educators, practice managers and clinic staff to join our community.
