The International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) is offering industry-leading Botox ® training for Nurse Practitioners (NPs) new to the Botox/dermal filler field, or for NPs looking to hone their cosmetic injectable skills.
Las Vegas, NV, October 11, 2011 -- NPs New to Botox ® Learn Everything they Need to Know at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training.
Nurse Practitioners wanting to add Botox ® as a treatment for their patients, now have a program that is tailored to their specific needs. NPs can now learn Botox ® best practices by attending the industry's leading dermatologist-lead botox ® training program (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/botoxtraining). Botox ® training is a critical component of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com), which offers instruction on the top 5 minimally invasive procedures: Botox ®, Dermal Fillers, Microdermbarsion, Chemical Peels, and Laser Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation. Leading the faculty is a team of renowned cosmetic dermatologists who will cover aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, Botox ® and Dysport ® product preparation, pain management, procedural protocols, post treatment issues, continuing practice support and quarterback the IAPAM's significant hands-on portion of the training.
Board certified dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Linder, who instructs at the IAPAM's Symposium, emphasizes that "any effective training program should provide tips on how to give an effective consultation with each patient. This should include a thorough evaluation of the individual characteristics of the face, a comprehensive discussion with the patient regarding risks and benefits, and most importantly, how to appropriately set and manage realistic patient expectations." Fellow IAPAM faculty member, dermatologist Dr. Toni C. Stockton, instructs registrants on the latest technologies and products, from Botox ® to Dysport ®. She also educates attendees on dealing with possible adverse events due to the procedure.

Also presented by the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com), the Botox ®/Dermal Filler Training Bootcamp offers Nurse practitioners (NPs) who have completed the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, two days of the most intensive hands-on cosmetic injectable training available in North America.

The medical faculty instructing at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums, as well as those teaching at the IAPAM's Botox ®/Filler Bootcamp are experienced in the "industry's best practices," particularly regarding the teaching of Botox ® and other cosmetic injectables.
