An increasing number of physicians and medical spa directors are adding Botox and dermal fillers to their treatment menus to attract more patients, but these fillers can only be administered by a licensed physician or medical professional.
The International Association of Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) is now offering a Botox training workshop for any physicians that want to add Botox to their practice. The program is designed for the specific needs of physician’s offices, and allows participants to learn best practices for administering and marketing Botox, and also get some industry insider information from a panel of dermatologists.
The IAPAM is adding Botox training as part of its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, and will include instruction for the top five minimally-invasive procedures to ensure all participating physicians have the knowledge and training they need to offer these treatments to patients. The top five minimally-invasive procedures are dermal fillers, Botox, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser hair removal. The training will allow faculty members of IAPAM to work directly with physicians to conduct sample aesthetic patient consultations, review facial anatomy, and prepare Botox and Dysport for administration. Doctors will also learn about pain management, risk and post-treatment issues commonly associated with these fillers.
In addition to the standard training, IAPAM will be offering Advance Botox Training, or ‘Botox Bootcamp’, a two-day event that will be the most intensive hands-on cosmetic injectable training available in the United States. This will also teach physicians about industry best practices, and give physicians a chance to work with 10 to 14 live patients and receive over six hours of hands-on Botox and filler training each day. All attendees will be awarded a certificate of completion.
The Botox and dermal filler bootcamp will be taking place October 24 and 25 in Toronto, Canada. More information about the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) can be found here.
