)-- New Entrants: Aesthetic Medicine Symposium's Botox Training
Physicians wanting to adding Botox to their practice now have a program that is tailored for their specific needs. Physicians can now learn best practices from fellow doctors in the industry's leading dermatologist-lead botox training program. Botox training is a critical component of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, which offers instruction on the top 5 minimally invasive procedures: Botox, Dermal Fillers, Microdermbarsion, Chemical Peels, and Laser Hair Removal. Leading the faculty is a team of renowned cosmetic dermatologists who will cover aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, Botox(TM) and Dysport(TM) product preparation, pain management, procedural protocols, post treatment issues and continuing practice support.
Board certified dermatologist Dr Jennifer Linder, 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(TM)to Dysport®. She also educates physicians on dealing with possible adverse events due to the procedure.
Also presented by the IAPAM, the Physician Botox/Dermal Filler Training Bootcamp offers practitioners 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(TM)and other neurotoxin injection techniques and protocols.
