THE Aesthetic Show™ celebrated its seventh anniversary May 16th through May 19th by proudly announcing the debut of AestheticTV.com, the first and only one-stop resource center for current and original video content focusing on the booming consumer appetite for cosmetic procedures. THE Aesthetic Show™’s record-breaking 2,500 attendees can attest that, with the anti-aging market now an $80 billion-dollar global business, the demand for AestheticTV™ has never been higher.
