Reducing Inflammation and Pigmentation & Unveiling New Skincare Solutions with Dr Tiina Meder

We hope you will join us for our upcoming workshop, "Reducing Inflammation and Pigmentation + Exciting New Professional Product Launch," where we're privileged to have Dr. Tiina Meder as the distinguished presenter. Here's a sneak peek to get you in the loop before the event.

Dr. Tiina Meder is a renowned expert in the field of aesthetic medicine and skincare solutions, and her wealth of knowledge in this area is truly exceptional. With numerous accolades and years of experience, Dr. Meder has made significant contributions to the world of skincare and is a recognised authority in the industry.

Pigmentation is a concern that's close to the hearts of many in the realm of aesthetic medicine, and it affects a remarkably broad range of individuals in our diverse population. People of all ages and genders grapple with pigmentation issues, and despite the array of treatments available, the success rates can be somewhat disheartening. Various internal and external factors play a pivotal role in determining the effectiveness of lightening treatments. Among these factors are the intensity of ultraviolet rays during different seasons, the patient's commitment to sunscreen use, and their overall health.

Traditionally, the most effective skincare solutions for lightening pigmentation have been known to cause photosensitivity and skin irritation. However, thanks to advances in modern science, we're now poised to do better. We're excited to introduce a new generation of lightening skincare that not only targets pigmentation but also addresses inflammation, reducing skin irritation and discomfort.

To unearth these innovative solutions, we've delved into extensive research on pigmentation, exploring new angles that address the molecular mechanisms behind pigment formation during different life stages, including critical periods like pregnancy, breastfeeding, and menopause.

Dr. Tiina Meder, with her expert insights, will guide us through this groundbreaking research. We're eager to share our latest findings and discoveries with workshop participants, and we're especially thrilled to be the first in the world to unveil the groundbreaking all-season Meder Lightening skincare exclusively to ABIC members.

Join us for this enlightening workshop, where Dr Tiina Meder will lead the way in exploring the future of skincare solutions and revealing our groundbreaking product.

Get ready for an exciting and informative session!

Exosome Therapy Workshop - Innovative and Cutting Edge with Dr Jing Wang (Open to all Delegates)

Hosted by Xytide

9am - 11am 

Exosomes are tiny vesicles that carry various molecules from one cell to another. They have a key role in how cells communicate and regenerate the skin and scalp. In this presentation and demonstration, you will learn about the following topics:

  • How exosomes work, what clinical evidence supports their use, and what benefits they offer
  • How exosomes can be used to improve the health and appearance of your patients’ skin and scalp
  • Why regenerative medicine is a vital and profitable addition to your clinic

exomide™ :

Exomide is a revolutionary skin and scalp care product that leverages exosome therapy, a cutting-edge technique that originated in South Korea. Exosome therapy uses nanosized vesicles called exosomes, which are secreted by stem cells and carry essential molecular information for cell-to-cell communication and regeneration. Exomide delivers stem cell-derived exosomes to target skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. Studies have shown exosome therapy can assist directly with increasing skin elasticity, increased collagen production, reducing wrinkles, pores, pigment, whilst improving the evenness and texture of the skin.


We believe that science and technology exists to make our lives happier, easier, longer, and increasingly spectacular.

We harmonise medical expertise, commercialisation, distribution channels, and regulatory services experience, to deliver extraordinary medicines and medical devices to professionals and consumers in Australia and New Zealand. The balance of medical practice, research, and business acumen, empowers us to review the in vivo and in vitro evidence to efficiently identify products for commercialisation in theAustralia and New Zealand markets.

From a single clinic, Suzie grew the company to a network of six premium medical skin clinics across Sydney and Canberra with a highly skilled team of 65, including 40 registered nurses and doctors.

In her capacity as a leader in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Nursing in Australia, Suzie recognised the rapidly evolving cosmetic industry was outpacing the legislation governing it. She worked with a National Australia Working Party to develop Australia’s’ first draft of the Professional Practice Standards and Scope of Practice for Aesthetic Nursing Practice in Australia. This industry endorsed document is now supporting the thousands of nurses working within Cosmetic Nursing. In addition, Suzie has contributed to the recently launched Australian College of Nursing’s first Graduate Certificate of Cosmetic Nursing and was a keynote at the ACN’s Forum in 2017.

Expanding on her reputation as a champion of healthy skin and the boosted confidence that arises as a result, Suzie launched her own magazine, Inner Confidence. A long-term supporter of the community, as Corporate Partner with Lifeline Canberra and other charities, in 2017 Suzie was the Indigenous Marathon Foundations National Corporate Runner for the New York Marathon.

Suzies’ expertise lies in brand building, selling and profitably scaling businesses. An advocate for women in business, Suzie has mentored many young women over the years and has presented at multiple business and networking events Australia wide.
