The IAPAM's Botox Training can help Physicians Boost the Bottom Line

As the demand for minimally-invasive treatments continues to rise, specifically the demand for botox injections and other cosmetic injectables, physicians can capture this growing market and greatly benefit their bottom lines through expert botox training at multi-day seminars like the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium.

Las Vegas, NV, February 23, 2011 -- As reported by ASPS, there were nearly 11.6 million minimally invasive procedures performed in 2010, with botox treatments leading the way. Equally, Allergan reported that sales of BOTOX Cosmetic increased 11% over 2009.

The IAPAM ( confirms this trend, noting that each of their Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums ( sold out in 2010. Furthermore, while botox training ( is still very popular, more and more physicians are also appreciating that the key to a successful and profitable aesthetic practice is not just offering botox injections, but also other skin rejuvenation procedures including: chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and IPL/laser skin rejuvenation (

In order to profitably add botox, chemical peels, lasers etc. to a practice, physicians need to incorporate these key fundamentals, as taught at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium:

- Understanding the latest trends in aesthetic medicine and how to use them to one's advantage;
- How to develop a successful business plan including steps on how to integrated medical aesthetics procedures into a practice or build a patient base;
- How to perform aesthetic patient consultations;
- How to add the most profitable cosmetic injectable procedures, including: Botox®, and dermal fillers (i.e. Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane®), chemical peels, and physician directed skin care;
- Engage in extensive, physician-lead, hands-on training in Botulinum Toxin Type A (i.e. Botox®), IPL / laser technology, and medical microdermabrasion offered in a medical facility, not in a hotel room; and
- How to maximize profits by offering the most profitable aesthetic medicine procedures like physician strength chemical peels, tailored to meet a specific clinic's patient profiles.

The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium program is unique in addressing all of these issues. Physicians learn best practices from the IAPAM's faculty of physicians and experienced instructors. Botox training is a key component of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, but the IAPAM also offers expert instruction in: Dermal Fillers, Microdermbarsion, Chemical Peels, and Lasers and Light Treatments & Hair Removal. Leading the training is a team of renowned board-certified cosmetic dermatologists, who will cover: aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, Botox®, and Dysport®, product preparation, pain management, procedural protocols, and post treatment issues.

Two other valuable offerings of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, is that it is the only multi-day educational program that trains in all 5 of the top minimally invasive procedures in one weekend, and it is also the only program that offers one year of unlimited practice support to all registrants. The conference materials provided allow each attendee and their staff to review the key content of the aesthetic medicine conference. These materials include: the complete Building a Successful Cosmetic Medical Business training program (16 training DVD's, including: Mastering the Consultation Process, Guide to Selling Photofacials, Marketing Your Cosmetic Practice, Sell Injectables and Explode Your Business, etc. as well as leader guide and 5 staff workbooks.)

Strategic partnership between riskart and IB Boost facilitates integration of riskart software with clients’ environment

riskart, has formed a strategic partnership with IB Boost, to focus on providing innovative and cost-effective integration solutions across the front, middle and back offices.

Milan, Italy - February 23, 2011 -- riskart, a leading derivatives consultancy based in Italy, has formed a strategic partnership with IB Boost, a leading technology and system integration consultancy, based in the City of London, to focus on providing innovative and cost-effective integration solutions across the front, middle and back offices.

The partnership will allow riskart to offer its clients a standard integration framework toolkit, based on proven service-oriented architecture, which removes much of the traditional difficulties in integrating systems dealing in OTC derivatives.

The framework automatically manages the normalization of data, guaranteeing compatibility with a wide variety of message types such as MQ Series, FpML, XML, JMS etc., and goes beyond typical data mapping to manage the lifecycle of each OTC derivative trade, enriching, aggregating and splitting trades on the basis of user-defined rules, identifying possible messages with missing data, queuing errors and passing from front to middle/back office only those trades which have been effectively completed.

This cost-effective and flexible solution to the challenges of system integration in the OTC derivatives area ensures that the whole process is much simplified, there is a much faster time-to-market on project delivery, and clients’ investments in system integration in the OTC derivatives space are preserved over time and can keep pace with the ever-evolving nature of the OTC markets and the complex and unique nature of many instruments.

riskart is always trying to stay a step ahead and partnering with IB-boost enables us to make a significant difference for our clients by simplifying the whole process of front to back office integration. OTC derivatives reform is upon us and is going to place a significant strain on clients’ IT budgets,” explained Franco Marinotti, riskart’s CEO. “Applying innovative technological solutions to the delicate area of system integration will allow clients to be better equipped to face up to the new requirements brought on by the reform, will increase efficiency in the still labour-intensive back office area and can have a direct impact on clients’ bottom line.”

Philippe Rioland, Managing Director at IB Boost, added, “We are really looking forward to working closely with riskart and their innovative Derivatives Management software. Our considerable experience in the field of system integration has taught us that the real value of integration lies in allowing clients to be confident in choosing their front, middle and back office solutions on the basis of merit, without having to be conditioned by technological and integration concerns. This is particularly true in the field of OTC derivatives. Our partnership with riskart means that customers can now cherry pick a best of breed solution that leaves riskart to manage the vital middle/back office part of their derivatives operation and at the same time removes the traditional headache of trying to integrate traders’ favourite front-office trading and position-keeping applications.”
