  • (1888PressRelease) May 19, 2011 - Las Vegas, NV -- The IAPAM offers the industry's leading botox training and associated facial aesthetics medicine education (including training on lasers for skin rejuvenation and hair removal, medical microdermabrasion and medical grade chemical peels) for physicians. The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium offers the most comprehensive, hands on, live demonstration and didactic instruction in botox as well as all 5 of the top non-invasive procedures and offers unparalleled business support to physicians as they build successful aesthetic medicine practices and capture the reported 5% growth in the minimally-invasive market in 2010.

    The market for facial aesthetics continues to grow, as evidenced in reports, like the recent 2010 Statistics from the ASPS, and the 1Q 2011 earnings discussion by executives from Allergan, makers of Botox, Latisse and Juvederm. Perennially, the top 5 minimally-invasive procedures are:

    Botulinum toxin type A (5.4 million)
    Soft tissue fillers (1.8 million)
    Chemical peels (1.1 million)
    Laser hair removal (938,000)
    Microdermabrasion (825,000)

    Botox Treatments Remain Robust

    "Injectables have remained robust despite the economy," said ASPS President Dr. Haeck. "Botox and Dysport injections are up 12 percent." David Pyott, Chairman and CEO of Allergan agrees that the facial aesthetic market is healthy. "It would seem that the dermal filler market is growing very strongly worldwide with more consumers entering the market given the comfort of the latest generation of lidocaine-containing hyaluronic acid products and more syringes being used per face. At the leading medical conventions around the world, there are increasing numbers of papers and symposia on the use of dermal fillers, especially for volumizing."

    Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (, concurs with the aforementioned findings. "We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive procedures like botox and other cosmetic injectables, medically supervised hCG weight loss as well as laser training, microdermabrasion and chemical peels are in tremendous demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in the demand for our training. Registration for our cornerstone training program, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Training (, has dramatically increased in the last 6 months. 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. Organizations, like the IAPAM, educate physicians on how to package these treatments for the most appealing and profitable outcomes."

    In line with these findings, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium provides a forum for physicians to immerse themselves in training on these top 5 minimally invasive procedures. Leading the faculty is a team of renowned cosmetic dermatologists who cover aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, product preparation, pain management, procedural protocols, post treatment issues and continuing practice support. Unlike other programs, the Botox Training is done in a clean, multi-million dollar medical facility, not a hotel room chair. Doctors who have completed the IAPAM's Weight Loss, Aesthetic Medicine Symposium and/or Aesthetic Practice Business Start-Up training have a competitive advantage.
