Inside the Latest A2 TRADE Magazine 2019 – Issue 4 – for Doctors Only


Welcome to the annual A2 TRADE Magazine for 2019. This is our magazine created for those in the medical and professional aesthetic industry only (not available to the consumer or patient).

All feature content of this issue is focused on all the latest innovations, techniques and trends in the South African aesthetics industry, for the sole purpose of educating and informing all medical professionals in this field.

How am I reading this??

Thanks for asking :) We provide this A2 Trade Magazine at local medical congresses in South Africa (within the aesthetics industry).

We also have soft copies available for doctors to download for free and read on any device (including your computer).

How can I get a hard copy?

You will receive a free copy when you attend any of the below congresses:

  • AMCSA 2019 (Aesthetic Medicine Congress of SA)
  • DDS 2019 (Digital Dentistry SA)
  • Cosmedica 2019 (Cosmetic Medicine Society of SA)

Ps. Because we only print one trade mag a year, stock is limited and we advise doctors to keep their copies in a keepsakes space.

How can I get a soft copy to read on any device?

That’s easy! Doctors and Medical Professionals can download the Magzter App from your iTunes or Play stores. Once you’ve got the app, search “A2 Trade Magazine”– and our free trade magazine should pop up. Doctors will need to sign up and log in to be able to get the free digital copy.
