In 2012, 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 January 28-29, 2012. Physicians will learn and receive everything they need to start offering Botox ® and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures this New Year.
Las Vegas, Nevada, January 06, 2012 -- As reported by he IAPAM in its annual Aesthetic Medicine Trends article, the market for minimally-invasive procedures continues to grow in 2012. Dr. Tom D. Wang, President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (AAFPRS) concedes that “consumer interest in aesthetic procedures and treatments have continued in a strong fashion. However, some effects from the recent recession still linger. Dr. Wang has “noted [that] some patients [are] choosing to have less invasive injectable treatments or non-surgical procedures in an effort to defer facial surgery for the time being.” To capture this growing patient population, physicians will need to offer the latest aesthetic medicine procedures, utilize the most current technologies, and package synergistic treatments for the most effective, yet cost effective results.
Therefore, to help educate physicians to meet this demand, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/botoxtraining) 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 (http://www.iapam.com/bootcamp.html) on Monday, January 30, 2012, a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
- to attend the IAPAM’s hCG Training (http://www.hcgtraining.com) on Friday, January 27, 2012, 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 950 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 January 28-29, 2012 in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona.
Consider adding aesthetic medicine modalities to a medical practice this New Year! Physicians who have attended the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training testify (http://www.iapam.com/category/testimonials) to its comprehensiveness, and the year of practice support from the IAPAM definitely makes the program different than the others.
