IAPAM Links Medical Spa Growth to Demand for Physician Botox ® Training

September 21, 2011 |

The IAPAM recently identified a correlation between the increase in physicians engaging in the IAPAM’s comprehensive, hands-on Botox ® Training, and the significant growth in botox ® and dermal filler procedures.

The respected market research group, Global Industry Analysts, projects that the 70 million baby boomers, “seeking to keep the dreaded signs of aging at bay,” will significantly impact the US market for aesthetic anti-aging treatments, including Botox ® and dermal fillers.  The market for these age defying products or treatments is currently estimated at $80 billion, and Global Industry Analysts predicts it will balloon to more than $114 billion by the year 2015. To capture this exploding market, physicians who are expertly trained in minimally invasive, anti-aging modalities and medical weight loss treatments, are best positioned to grow their healthcare businesses. 
The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium ( is a weekend of comprehensive Botox ® training as well as dermal filler training, laser training, medical grade chemical peel training, medical microdermabrasion training, and hCG training (, and is the only multi-day, hands-on symposium, to offer education for physicians on how to profitably add the top 5 anti-aging modalities to a practice.
Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, concurs with the findings of Global Industry Analysts’ research.  “We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive procedures like cosmetic injectables, medically supervised hCG for weight loss, as well as 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 (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium), has dramatically increased in the last 9 months.  We have sold out every session in 2011.  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.”

The  IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium provides a forum for physicians to immerse themselves in training in the 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 IAPAM’s Botox ® training is done in a clean, multi-million dollar medical facility, not a hotel room chair.
