IAPAM Reports that Botox ® Training Remains Popular The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums train physicians on how to safely, profitably and successfully add botox ®, hCG for weight loss, and other aesthetic modalities (lasers for skin rejuvenation, medical microdermabrasion and medicalgrade chemical peels) to an existing medical practice. The IAPAM helps physicians enter this lucrative market by offering the industry’s best botox ® training and hCG training. To date, all of the 2011 and the January 2012 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium events have sold out. Las Vegas, Nevada (February 17, 2012) -- Since 2006, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium ( has offered physicians a competitive advantage through its comprehensive, hands-on, immersion into the field of aesthetic medicine and cosmetic injectables. The IAPAM’s ( Symposium with Botox Training, is the only program which gives physicians a hands-on opportunity to learn from two board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables. In order to ensure physicians learn the best injection techniques, the botox ® training is done in a medical practice, not in a hotel room chair. In addition, the Symposium does not allow exhibitors, giving physicians more time for education. Physicians who attend the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium can revisit their educational experience by using the IAPAM’s 19 comprehensive training DVDs. The 3 clinical DVDs offers focused instruction and demonstrations on Botulinum Toxin (Botox ®) Injection Techniques, Dermal Filler Injection Techniques, Chemical Peel Techniques, and Microdermabrasion Techniques. These DVDs cover three key anti-aging treatment areas: 1. Botulinum Toxin for Cosmetic Patients lecture. 2. Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers for Cosmetic Patients - live demonstration. 3. Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion live demonstration of techniques. Equally, Symposium attendees receive 16 Cosmetic Practice training DVDs. These resources allow physicians and their staff to re-immerse themselves in the IAPAM’s training, at their convenience. The popularity of the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is consistent with the demand by physicians for expert and accredited cosmetic injectables training. Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM has witnessed the tremendous growth of minimally-invasive modalities. “We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive procedures like botox ®, dermal fillers as well as microdermabrasion continue to grow in

demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in attendance at our Symposium with botox ® training. Moreover, physicians are realizing they not only need to offer botox ® treatments to their patients, but also laser hair removal, IPL skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, and organizations like the IAPAM educate physicians and their staff on how to package treatments for the most appealing and profitable outcomes.” For additional information and to register for an upcoming Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (March 3-4, 2012), please contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit Botox is a trademark of Allergan, Inc.
