IAPAM Announces Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training December 3-4, 2011

Physicians learn and receive everything they need to start offering Botox ® and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures for the New Year.

Las Vegas, NV - November 11, 2011 -- In this economy, patients are more likely to opt for minimally-invasive, less expensive anti-aging treatments such as Botox ®, dermal fillers, laser skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion and medical-grade chemical peels. The IAPAM helps physicians enter this lucrative market by offering their dermatologist-led Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training in Scottsdale, Arizona on December 3-4, 2011. Physicians learn and receive everything they need to start offering Botox ® and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures for the New Year.

As reported by the ASAPS, an article in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal reported that in two recent surveys, “half (53%) of respondents considering facial plastic surgery had been affected by the economy in their decision to move forward with medical antiaging treatments. The majority of affected respondents said they were likely to ….. pursue less-costly options such as microdermabrasion (32%) [or Botox ®].” This heralds that the number of patients turning to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures like: Botox ® (, dermal filler injections, lasers for skin rejuvenation & hair removal (, medical microdermabrasion, and chemical peels will continue to increase in 2012. To assist physicians in meeting this demand, the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium ( was designed by physicians for physicians, and has integrated the most important clinical, aesthetic medicine business, and Botox ® training into one weekend, including:

- dedicated instruction from board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables;
- hands-on practice in the best injection techniques;
- Botox ® training at a multi-million dollar medical practice, not in a hotel room; and
- an environment that does not allow exhibitors, giving physicians more time for education.

Attendees also have the opportunity:

- to attend the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Workshop ( on Monday, December 5, 2011, a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
- to attend the IAPAM’s hCG Training ( on Friday, December 2, 2011, which covers hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) for weight loss, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacements and B6/12 injections.

To date, over 900 physicians (MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs etc.) and their staff (RNs, MAs, practice managers, etc.), have attended the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums and hCG Training seminars. The dates for the next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium are December 3-4, 2011 in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona.

Consider adding aesthetic medicine modalities to a medical practice for the New Year! Physicians who have attended the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training testify ( to its comprehensiveness, and the year of practice support from the IAPAM definitely makes the program different than the others.
