IAPAM Links MedSpa Growth to Demand for Physician Botox Training

September 27, 2010 |

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.

As announced in a recent report by iData Research, the market for aesthetic medicine modalities (botox, dermal fillers, lasers, etc.) is expected to almost double, and exceed $3 billion over the next seven years.  The report estimates that the market for procedures such as Botox will grow to $543 million by 2017, and that skin resurfacing, hair removal and laser lipolysis are the fastest-growing segments of the aesthetic medicine market.

Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, concurs with the findings of iData Research.  “We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive procedures like cosmetic injectables, medically supervised hCG 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, has dramatically increased in the last 9 months.  We have sold out every session in 2010.  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.
