The growth in minimally-invasive, less expensive anti-aging treatments such as Botox ®, dermal fillers, and hCG for weight loss continues to grow in the second half of 2012. From family physicians to internists to obstetricians & gynecologists, many physicians have decided to add these services to their existing practices. To meet this need, the IAPAM announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, September 22-23, 2012, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - August 9, 2012 -- As reported in Medical Economics, the increase in interest in the field of aesthetic medicine makes sense when one considers that, "the bulk of cosmetic procedure clients are the very people who dominate the patient panels of internists and family physicians. Women aged 35 to 50 years have 44% of these procedures, and women between the ages of 51 and 65 have an additional 20%."
To help physicians add these non-surgical modalities to a practice, and enter this lucrative cash-based market, the IAPAM offers the industry's leading dermatologist-led Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the IAPAM's September 22-23 Symposium (http://iapam.com/aesthetic-medicine-symposium-botox-training), physicians will receive everything they need, to start safely and profitably offering Botox ® and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures right away.
"About 5 million nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were performed by aestheticians last year, frequently in a spa setting," says Jeff Russell, executive director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com). "Many primary care physicians (PCPs) have decided to meet the demand for these services by actively controlling the "med" part of these "medspas"."
Therefore, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is specifically designed by physicians, for physicians, to educate and train on the top cosmetic procedures like: Botox ®, dermal filler injections, lasers for skin rejuvenation & laser hair removal, medical microdermabrasion, and medical grade chemical peels. The IAPAM's September 22-23 Symposium has integrated the most important clinical, aesthetic medicine business, and Botox ® training ALL 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:
1. Attend the IAPAM's Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Workshop (http://iapam.com/aesthetic-practice-startup-workshop) on Monday, September 24, 2012, a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
2. Attend the IAPAM's hCG Training (http://iapam.com/physician-weight-loss-training-using-hormones) on Friday, September 21, 2012, which covers hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) for weight loss, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacements and B6/12 injections.
Since 2006, over 1000 physicians (MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs, DDSs etc.) and their staff (RNs, MAs, practice managers, etc.), have attended the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums and hCG Training seminars, and been certified by the IAPAM. Also, the year of personalized practice support and the wealth of resources included with one's training, definitely make the IAPAM's programs different than the others.
The dates for the next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium are September 22-23, 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona. For additional information or to register for the September 22-23 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, please contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit http://www.iapam.com.
