Las Vegas, NV, December 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With the recent proliferation of the DIY Botox Trend, physicians must re-position themselves as the most pre-eminently qualified, expert medical providers of cosmetic injectables. Without a doubt, proper Botox Training is critical. To support doctors training requirements in this area, the IAPAM has developed three different programs to train physicians in the injection of botulinum toxins (Botox and Dysport) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane).
1. Physicians with limited Botox injection experience, should first attend the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/botoxtraining) in Scottsdale, Arizona.
2. Physicians with some Botox injection experience will then want to attend the Botox & Dermal Filler Bootcamp (http://www.iapam.com/botoxtraining), where they inject over 10 live patients over the weekend in Toronto, Canada.
3. Once a physician has 6 months of injection experience, the IAPAM also has the Advanced Dermal Filler training program (http://www.iapam.com/advancedfillertraining.html), where doctors have an opportunity to learn more advanced dermal filler injection techniques, including: jaw contouring, tear trough, cheek augmentation, and advanced lip sculpting techniques. This training is offered in Toronto, Canda as well.

The Botox / Dermal Filler Bootcamp includes:
- The most live patients: 10-14 live patients;

Day One covers Botox/Neurotoxin Injectables
Attendees are presented with a brief, but thorough, review of the muscles of facial expression. The indications, risks and benefits of Botox and other neurotoxins will be discussed for both the upper and lower face. Also, ideal dosing and advanced Botox injection techniques will be emphasized.

Attendees will perform the following botulinum toxin procedures:
* treatment of glabellar frown lines;
* forehead lines;
* periorbital rhytid;
* nasalis ”bunny” lines;
* melomental “marionette” lines;
