MyFaceMyBody Awards Review

I attended the "My Face My Body Awards" held for the first time in Beverly Hills at the gorgeous Montage Hotel last night. Stephan Handisides is president of this organization which celebrates the best of the best in cosmetics and aesthetics in what is like their Oscars.

Celebrity presenters for the night's festivities included, "Lost Girl" Emmanuelle Vaugier, "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" star, Melissa Joan Hart and gorgeous Courtney Hope with her soap star boyfriend, Chad Duell in attendance.


"My Face My Body Awards" sponsors for this elegant affair included, Allergan, Merz North America and ZO Skin Health. The evening was hosted by Stephan Handiside who presented entertainment in the form of Cirque du Soleil as over 200 guests dined on braised short rib over mashed potatoes and veggies with fine wines. 


The prestigious and internationally recognized MyFaceMyBody Awards is the only consumer awards dedicated to the aesthetic industry to recognize and reward brands for their product innovation and popularity.

Plastic surgeons and dermatologists are also rewarded for their exceptional experiences and outstanding service to their patients. The awards event will be attended by 300 leading medical professionals, brands, journalists and celebrities.

The fifteen categories of the awards included, Best Aesthetic Practice, Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, South Central and west. Best Anti-Aging Product for Home and Clinic, Best Body Makeover surgical and non surgical, Best Professional Skincare Range, Best Skin Tightening Treatement, surgical or non surgical, Best Innovative Product for home and clinic and Best Body Re-shaping surgical and non surgical.


I guess when you bring the best of the best in beauty together and combine that with great fashion, food, wine and entertainment it makes for a memorable evening and that's exactly what "My Face My Body Awards" did last night. In addition to bringing the best in beauty together they also brought to light their support for a very worthy cause in the Face Forward Charity. I thougth this was the highlight of the evening and love this charity. Face Forward’s mission is to provide emotional support and reconstructive surgery for women, children and men who have been victims of Domestic Violence, Human Trafficking or any Cruel Acts of Crime.


Face Forward is a non-profit organization, a 501(c)(3) registered in the State of California. Face Forward works with community leaders and organizations around the nation and throughout the world, in order to identify victims of violence who are working toward recovery and who carry the physical evidence of past abuse. Mrs. Deborah Alessi founded Face Forward in 2007, and as a survivor of domestic violence is a passionate advocate of this very worthy cause. To help other survivors get a second chance at life, Mrs. Alessi recruited her husband and renowned facial reconstructive surgeon, Dr. David Alessi. Their goal is to create an environment of safety and security not only for the victims who desperately need surgery and rehabilitation, but also for their families.

Face Forward is able to provide services to individuals who are committed to their recovery by partnering with local community centers, which offer complementary relief, housing, counseling, job searches and legal assistance. We are one humble part of the recovery puzzle; however, the immediate results of our healing efforts provide individuals with the confidence to put their best Face Forward once again.

Each year since its inception, Face Forward has garnered community support with the help of individual and corporate sponsors, celebrity supporters and through hosting various fundraising events to bring awareness to the cause and to help raise funds. In 2015, Face Forward was able to help provide over $750,000 in pro bono surgical and therapy services to patients thanks to this generous support and through the success of its annual gala, which just celebrated its 6th year as a signature annual fundraising event.


All in all I believe Stephan Handiside did a great job in launching his first My Face My Body Awards in the heart of Beverly Hills and think that he's off to a great start that celebrate the best of the best in beauty and aesthetics, so I hope to be invited to attend again next year!
