The International Academy of Advanced Facial Aesthetics was set up in 2001 as a non-profit organisation by leading Facial Aesthetic Trainer, Prof Bob Khanna.


We wanted to provide a space for medical professionals in the aesthetics field to come together (including dentists, dermatologists, aesthetic nurse practitioners, plastic surgeons, general practitioners and more) to help develop, enhance, regulate and celebrate the non-surgical aesthetics industry.

Becoming a member of IAAFA will expose you to a world of knowledge, skills and networking and business opportunities including exclusive discounts.


Develop, enhance, regulate, celebrate

Our mission is to continually integrate and develop the diverse volume of knowledge and skills present within the aesthetics field, with the aim of enhancing and regulating patient care, as well as assisting aesthetic clinicians on their career journeys.
