IAPAM Botox Training Helps Physicians Meet 500% Increase in Botox Procedures

Botox injections have surged in popularity, rising 584 percent since 2000. The IAPAM is helping physicians enter this lucrative cash based services market by offering dermatologist-led Botox Training in at its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona. In just 2 days of comprehensive, hands-on, physician-led training, physicians will learn everything they need to know, to start offering Botox and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures.

Las Vegas, NV, May 03, 2011 -- According to statistics published by the ASPS, botox injections have exploded in popularity, rising almost 600 percent since 2000. In excess of 5.3 million botox treatments were performed in 2010, while other cosmetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty and face lifts have declined. Injectables fueled the growth in cosmetic treatments, with soft tissue fillers, like fat injections, rising 14%. These statistics translate into an increase in the number of patients seeking out botox (http://www.iapam.com/botox-training) and other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, including: dermal filler injections, lasers for skin rejuvenation (http://www.iapam.com/aesthetic-medicine-training/laser-training), medical microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.

To assist physicians in entering the aesthetic medicine field, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/) 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.
- an environment that does not allow exhibitors, giving doctors more time for education.
- the opportunity to attend the Symposium's Aesthetic Practice Startup Workshop (http://www.iapam.com/bootcamp.html), a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
- the opportunity to attend the IAPAM's hCG/Medical Weight Management (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training), which covers hCG for weight loss, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacements and B6/12 injections.

To date, over 850 physicians, as well as their accompanying medspa managers, registered nurses, and assistants, have attended the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums and hCG for Weight Loss Training, and physicians who have attended the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox training testify its comprehensiveness, and the year of practice support from the IAPAM definitely makes the course different than the others.

Zevrix Releases BatchOutput 3.11.2 for InDesign: Improves Spread Output

Zevrix Solutions announces BatchOutput 3.11.2, a maintenance update to its popular professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for a major ad agency in Canada, BatchOutput offers output of multiple files, single pages output, link auto-update, PDF preflighting, variable file names, file delivery and other workflow automation solutions. The new update improves output of non-consecutive spreads and improves event logging.

Toronto (ON), Canada - May 03, 2011 -- Zevrix Solutions today announces BatchOutput 3.11.2, a maintenance update to its popular professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for one of the largest ad agencies in Canada to boost productivity of its prepress department, BatchOutput automates and simplifies workflow of printers, service providers and publishing houses.

The new update addresses some issues related to export of non-consecutive range of InDesign spreads as single files, and improves logging of certain events during processing. The updated is recommended to all BatchOutput users.

"BatchOutput has been the single biggest time-saver I've encountered in ten years of print production," says Mike Agate, Head of Contents Production of Which?, Europe's largest consumer rights organization. "Easily saves hours a week, producing bullet-proof, single-page PDFs, over and over... With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over."

BatchOutput is not just a plug-in - it's a workflow solution that interacts with Acrobat Pro preflight engine, provides file delivery capabilities and integrates fully with the Finder. Users can keep working with other programs while BatchOutput processes InDesign files in the background. Or they can let it work while they're on a lunch break or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of documents and the job will be done when they return in the morning.

BatchOutput supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML and various image formats. It offers the following key features:

-Print and export hundreds of InDesign files with a single click.
-Output files as single pages.
-Update links automatically.
-Assign complex variable file names.
-Preflight final PDF automatically with Acrobat Pro droplets.
-Send output files to FTP, MobileMe, WebDAV and other remote and local destinations.

BatchOutput is also available in a server version which processes InDesign files automatically from hot folders.

Pricing and Availability:
BatchOutput can be purchased from Zevrix web site for US$129.95, as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. Upgrade is free for users of version 3.x, and $51.98 from earlier versions. Includes free Deliver application for file delivery (a $19.95 value). BatchOutput is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2 and later, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe InDesign CS2-CS5.
