The IAPAM has identified a correlation between the 2012 and 1Q 2013 increase in attendees at its hands-on Botox Training, and the growth in 2012 in botox injection and dermal filler procedures. Physicians looking to combat declining insurance reimbursements are looking to add aesthetic medicine procedures like botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and chemical peels to their practices. To that end, the IAPAM supports physicians entering this cash-based market by offering their NEXT dermatologist-led Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Training in Scottsdale, Arizona on May 4-5, 2013.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - March 27, 2013 -- Through discussion with its members, and by analyzing recent aesthetic medicine statistics, like the ASPS 2012 Plastic Surgery Procedural Statistics and the ASAPS's Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics 2012, the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) has identified that in 2012, aesthetic medicine physicians were performing more botox and other cosmetic injectables procedures, more chemical peel treatments, more laser skin rejuvenation, and more medical microdermabrasions vs. more invasive treatments.
The ASAPS reported that, "Americans spent almost $11 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2012. Of that total..... $2 billion was spent on injectable procedures; $1.8 billion was spent on skin rejuvenation procedures; and over $483 million was spent on other nonsurgical procedures, including laser hair removal and laser treatment of leg veins. [Once again,] the most popular nonsurgical procedure was injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A (including Botox and Dysport). Cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures increased over 10% in the past year, with almost 8.5 million procedures in 2012. Nonsurgical procedures accounted for 83% of the total number of procedures performed representing 39% of total expenditures, and the top five minimally-invasive procedures were:
- Botulinum Toxin Type A: 3,257,913
- Hyaluronic Acid: 1,423,705
- Laser Hair Removal: 883,893
- Microdermabrasion: 498,821
- Chemical Peel: 443,824"
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. face lifts 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 competitive 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. Moreover, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com) is specifically designed by physicians, for physicians. The IAPAM's March 23-24, 2013 Symposium has integrated the most important clinical, aesthetic medicine business, and botox training ALL 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 Botox 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:
1. Attend the IAPAM's Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Workshop (http://iapam.com/aesthetic-practice-startup-workshop) on Monday, May 6, 2013, a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
2. Attend the IAPAM's Clean Start hCG Weight Loss Training (http://www.hcgtraining.com) on Friday, May 3, 2013, which covers the new Clean Start hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) for Weight Loss Program, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacements and B6/12 injections.
Add aesthetic medicine modalities to a medical practice in 2013! Physicians who have attended the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Injection Training applaud (http://www.iapam.com/category/testimonials) its comprehensiveness, and the year of practice support and client service from the IAPAM definitely makes this association and this training program different than the others.
