IAPAM Reports on Increase in Laser Training Consistent with Increase in Laser Treatments

In the upcoming year, successful aesthetic practices will offer “combination” treatment packages, integrating: facial injectables, medical skin care, IPL/laser rejuvenation and non-invasive body contouring. To develop these packages, physicians will require expert and physician lead training in lasers and light devices, botox ® and other cosmetic injectables, medical microdermabrasion and medical grade chemical peel, like those offered at the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Las Vegas, Nevada, March 9, 2012 -- As published by the ASPS, cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures increased 6 percent from 2010 to 2011. Interestingly, the greatest increase in a single treatment area was seen in laser treatments, such as laser hair removal. Laser and light device procedures increased by 15% over last year, with over 1.1 million procedures preformed in 2011. This increase in patient demand for expert laser treatments is translating to an increased demand by physicians for expert laser training (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/laser-training) like that offered by the IAPAM at their Aesthetic Medicine Symposium. The IAPAM’s Symposiums offer the most comprehensive, hands on, expert training in the use of lasers and light devices for hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

As well as expert laser training, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com) provides physicians::

- dedicated instruction from two 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)on the Monday after each Symposium, 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.hcgtraining.com) on Friday before each Symposium, which covers hCG for weight loss, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacement and B6/12 injections.

Since 2005, the IAPAM has been a leader in providing aesthetic medicine industry trends, as well as aesthetic medicine and hCG for medically supervised weight loss education for physicians.

NanoMarkets Announces the Release of Latest Report on Silver in Photovoltaics Applications

NanoMarkets has announced the release of its latest report on smart windows, "Silver in Photovoltaics-2012."

Glen Allen, Virginia - March 9, 2012 -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has announced the release of its latest report on smart windows, "Silver in Photovoltaics-2012." In the report the firm projects that suppliers of silver inks and pastes face challenging times as the PV industry's use of silver declines in the coming years. NanoMarkets' new report finds that while the use of silver will increase in front electrodes, back electrodes and tabbing will require substantially less silver leading to a rather significant drop in overall demand. Additional details about the report are available at: http://nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/silver_in_photovoltaics_2012

About the Report:

"Silver in Photovoltaics - 2012" is the latest report from NanoMarkets in our ongoing coverage of materials and markets in the photovoltaics sector. In this report, NanoMarkets examines the changing opportunities for silver materials in the dynamic PV industry.

The report is designed to help silver suppliers to understand how changes in the PV industry will influence their sales. It considers how suppliers of silver materials to the PV industry can hold onto market share under the difficult circumstances that PV faces today: rapidly falling panel prices, huge pressures to continually reduce costs, and government subsidies under threat. It also considers these challenges in light of silver's historically high - and likely to stay high - commodity price.

Taking into account these new dynamics, NanoMarkets identifies where opportunities are still available for silver in the PV sector and covers both conventional crystalline silicon PV and PV based on thin-film silicon, CdTe, CIGS, OPV, and DSC. The report includes coverage of established silver pastes and inks as well as newer materials based on nanomaterials, including the latest transparent nanosilver-based electrodes. It also examines alternative scenarios for silver in PV and provides an in depth discussion of materials challenges to silver in the PV sector, especially those presented by the use of copper and aluminum.

As with all NanoMarkets reports, this report contains detailed eight-year forecasts of the silver usage in the PV sector broken out by PV technology and how the silver is used within the PV cell itself. The forecasts are provided in both value and volume (ounces) terms. In addition, the report discusses the strategies of key firms to watch in this important sector.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of advanced materials and photovoltaics and has been covering the markets for such technologies sector for more than six years.

Business People seek Solution to the stress of Tax Time

ExpenseDocs is a virtual solution that allows businesses to track, document and report expenses, mileage, appointments and business trips and store them safely in case of an audit.

Round Rock, TX - March 9, 2012 -- Many small business owners are frantically seeking a solution to the stress of tax time. Sorting receipts on the kitchen table has become an annual ritual when preparing tax returns. And making things worse, many valuable receipts are lost resulting in a deduction not taken.

What does that mean for a tax payer; they deduct too few legitimate deductions and pay too much in taxes.

ExpenseDocs is a virtual solution that allows businesses to track, document and report expenses, mileage, appointments and business trips and store them safely in case of an audit.

Simplifying Documentation
With this virtual business solution, tax payers can easily and securely track and document expense data, receipts, mileage and business trip information. It is so easy to use that there is no manual required.

One example of the simplicity of use is the ability for tax payers to take a picture of a receipt with their phone and email it into their ExpenseDocs account. Result - no more lost receipts or proof of and expense if audited.

ExpenseDocs accounts are also accessible from virtually anywhere since it is ‘in the cloud’. Access can be gained from an iPad, smart phone, laptop or other internet device.

Maxmizing Deductions
By providing a complete solution to expense documentation ExpenseDocs users do not lose important expense information allowing them to maximize their deductions. Tax payers should never lose a deduction as a result of a lack of information.
The IRS requires a receipt, mileage log, appointment log and written description of the business purpose of business meals or entertainment to PROVE an expense. All of these documents can be lost or destroyed, but ExpenseDocs safely stores all of this information ‘in the cloud’.

Increasing Productivity
From January to the middle of April, many self-employed tax payers lose many hours laboring over the receipts they managed to save, recreating an expense record for the previous year. This is an inherent problem and one that costs small business owners hundreds of hours of productivity and hundreds of dollars in lost deductions.
ExpenseDocs users can prepare a categorized report of their expenses for the month, quarter or pervious year in about ten (10) seconds. No more lost time toiling at the kitchen table at tax time.
