By analyzing recent aesthetic medicine statistics published by the ASPS, the ASAPS and the AAFPRS, the IAPAM has identified that in 2013, offering aesthetic medical treatments from botox to lasers for skin rejuvenation will result in the growth of a medical practice. To support this growth, the IAPAM offers the industry's most comprehensive, hands-on botox and aesthetic medicine training. Today, it announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale, AZ: June 15-16, 2013.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - May 8, 2013 – "More patients are turning to the more inexpensive non-invasive procedures rather than surgical cosmetic procedures," says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (http://www.iapam.com). "They may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with a combination treatment of botox and dermal fillers, then can get a great result at a fraction of the price."
This is illustrated in the recent statistics from ASPS (and echoed in the reports from the ASAPS and the AAFPRS), as there were 13 million non-surgical procedures performed in 2012; the top five minimally-invasive procedures being:
- Botulinum toxin type A (6.1 million procedures, up 8 percent)
- Soft tissue fillers (2 million procedures, up 5 percent)
- Chemical peel (1.1 million procedures, up 2 percent)
- Laser hair removal (1.1 million procedures, up 4 percent)
- Microdermabrasion (974,000 procedures, up 8 percent)
"For the third consecutive year, the overall growth in cosmetic surgery continues to be driven by a significant rise in minimally-invasive procedures," confirmed Dr. Gregory Evans, MD, President of the ASPS.
In support of this market growth, the IAPAM has tailored its educational programs, like its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Training (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com), to ensure physicians have hands-on botox training, and can start offering aesthetic medicine procedures immediately after attending.
Since the key to growth in 2013 will be offering lower cost, short term procedures (i.e. botox, dermal fillers, chemical peels, physician-directed skin care and medical microdermabrasion) versus higher cost, long term procedures (i.e. facelifts and breast augmentation), physicians will seek out professional training programs, offered in medical facilities not hotel rooms, and taught by physicians and other expertly trained medical and business personnel. The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums with Botox Training, Aesthetic Medicine Practice Start-Up Workshops and Clean Start hCG for Weight Loss Seminars, are all designed by physicians for physicians, to meet this essential educational need.
The IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) leads its competitors in offering the most complete botox training and aesthetic medicine education in North America. Attendees at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums will have the advantage of learning from board-certified dermatologists and experts in the fields of botox injection training, lasers, dermal fillers, hCG for weight loss, chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
