Inside the Latest A2 Magazine Issue 30 – Winter 2019


CURRENT Issue 30 – September 2019 (Winter)

As always, we bring out four issues a year, one at the beginning of each season…

  • March (autumn)
  • June (winter)
  • September (spring)
  • December (summer)

At A2 Magazine, we believe aesthetics and anti-ageing are more than just a few injectable treatments. It’s the whole package – a healthy outlook on life (a smile makes you seem younger and more attractive), what you put out is what you receive back in return, healthy skin (this forms the basis of everything), a healthy body, healthy hair and so on. All the external treatments and procedures must add to and compliment these.

Which is why our print magazine and blog both comprehensively cover the following sections within the industry:

  1. The Aesthetic Report (aesthetic treatments and procedures, injectables, treatments)
  2. Anti-Ageing & Integrative Medicine (a holistic approach to your overall health and wellness through nutrition, exercise, hormone balance etc)
  3. Skin Sense (focusing on your skin, skin concerns, treatments, procedures and products to use)
  4. Dental Techniques (interesting info and options in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry)
  5. And lastly, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery (touching on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery options whether they are for cosmetic or medical reasons)

We cover varying topics within each of the above sections in every print magazine, plus regularly update our blog,, with information in-between magazines. So be sure to never miss an edition and check in regularly with us on the blog and social media.

Happy reading with us in this beautiful new season!
