Botox training is an important part of any physicians aesthetic practice or medical spa. By integrating Botox into a physician’s aesthetic practice, you now open the door to other complementary procedures like IPL skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, chemical peels, and a home skin care regiment. According to a recent IAPAM (International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine) study, the women surveyed said “wrinkles” was their number one concern. Currently the only effective treatment for wrinkles is with Botulinum toxin type A, commonly referred to as Botox Cosmetic® (Allergan, Inc.) or Dysport® (Medicis, Inc.). Proper Botox training is critical to the success of an aesthetic medicine physician.
Botox which can last up to 6 months is touted as an entry into “aesthetics” procedure. Offering cosmetic injectable’s to your practice is a great way to increase practice revenues, however it is only one part of the puzzle. In order to operate a profitable aesthetic medicine practice you will need to provide: skin rejuvenation via IPL, laser hair removal, chemical peels, and physician directed Cosmeceuticals. And most importantly, you need to understand the business of aesthetic medicine. Consider attending the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, it is the only complete aesthetic medicine training program available, including both Botox training, IPL / Laser training, and Chemical Peel training.
