Botox Training: A Boom for Physicians Under the New Healthcare Bill

The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium offers the most comprehensive medical and business training for doctors looking to add aesthetic medicine to their existing practices, or to launch a new medical spa. The IAPAM ensures that all its training is tailored to specific competency levels, and consistent with the FDA's recommendations, all IAPAM hands-on botox and other training is completed in a clean medical facility.

Las Vegas, NV, April 03, 2010 --( The new healthcare bill recently passed the United States has raised many issues for physicians. Interestingly, one of the key implications of this legislation is that doctors may be looking to grow their healthcare businesses through the addition of more cosmetic services, not covered by Medicare or Medicaid. Such offerings might include aesthetic medicine treatments and procedures, such as cosmetic injectables and the use of hCG in medical weight management. To serve this timely educational and professional development need, the IAPAM offers the the industry's most customized and current aesthetic medicine training, spanning botox to weight loss.

Physicians Adding Botox to their Practice: Aesthetic Medicine Symposium's Botox Training

Botox training is the central component of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (, which offers comprehensive instruction on the top 5 minimally invasive procedures as reported by the ASAPS for 2009: Botox injection (2,557,068 procedures); hyaluronic acid (1,313,038 procedures); laser hair removal (1,280,031 procedures); microdermabrasion (621,943 procedures) and chemical peels (529,285 procedures). Leading the faculty is a team of renowned cosmetic dermatologists who will cover aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, Botox and Dysport 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 to Dysport. She also educates physicians on dealing with possible adverse events due to the procedure.
