Choosing aesthetic and anti-ageing treatments can be tough and confusing. At A2 Magazine, we do everything in our power to simplify and demystify treatments and procedures available to patients in South Africa. Covering topics written by medical doctors, stand-outs in the industry and journalists, on aesthetics, anti-ageing, skin care and dermatology to integrative medicine, cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic surgery. We also cater to our doctors and clinics by featuring trade-related articles and aesthetic equipment and products.
As a privately owned and published print and digital magazine, we personally assess all advertisers to ensure they fit our reader profile. Our advertising goals are to profile brands that are valuable to our readers, and in return, offer advertising value and ROI to our clients.The best part about A2’s model is that it’s unapologetically niche and glossy – our focus for our advertisers is more about Market Penetration than it is about reaching mass numbers that can result in a hit/miss scenario.
With A2, you are reaching aesthetically-minded consumers with disposable income. You’re also getting into the hands of almost every plastic surgeon, GP in aesthetics, dermatologist and cosmetic dentist in SA, as well as aesthetic clinics, medi-spas and selected aesthetic salons.
Print advertising isn’t dead. It’s just niche now. Read why, over here!
