Learn from Leading Dermatologists at IAPAM’s Symposium with Botox Training

November 8, 2010 |

The IAPAM continues to offer the industry’s best clinical, hands-on, aesthetic medicine training in the most advanced skin care procedures. The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is a weekend training program, designed by physicians for physicians, and supports the addition of the top 5 minimally invasive procedures:  botox, dermal fillers, lasers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and hCG for Weight Loss to an existing practice or the launch of a medical spa.

Over 700 physicians and their staff have attended the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums.  These respected and well attended multi-day educational programs are coveted forums for physicians eager to safely, profitably and successfully add botox, hCG medical weight loss, and other aesthetic modalities to their existing practices, or to launch a medical spa.  The IAPAM’s Symposium is the only program which gives physicians an opportunity to learn from two board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables. In order to ensure doctors learn the best injection techniques, the botox training is done in a multi-million dollar medical facility, not in a hotel room. In addition, the Symposium does not allow exhibitors, giving physicians more time for education.

Physicians who attend the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium can revisit their educational experience.  Registrants receive the IAPAM’s 3 comprehensive clinical training DVD’s, offering focused instruction on: botox training, dermal filler training and microdermabrasion training.  The three DVD’s are hosted by IAPAM faculty member, Dr. Marc Scheiner, and cover three key anti-aging treatment areas:

  1. Botox Training,
  2. Dermal Filler Training, and
  3. Microdermabrasion training. 

Equally, Symposium attendees receive 19 Cosmetic Practice training DVD’s.  These resources allow doctors and their staff to re-immerse themselves in IAPAM’s training at their convenience. A preview of the IAPAM’s Symposium can be viewed at

Dr. Scheiner, applauds courses like the IAPAM’s, because it “allows the physician to inject several live patients” which truly gives the “confidence necessary to begin immediately offering the procedure.” 

Dr. Jennifer Linder, who also instructs at the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium adds, “in order to perform Botox treatments well, one must understand the medication and how it specifically works.  Physicians must know how to appropriately dilute the product and how to safely and effectively administer it.  Training should provide an in-depth discussion of facial anatomy and how to evaluate muscle movements to decide on product placement.  One must understand the details of how Botox interacts with the muscles, the natural variations of the musculature of the face, as well as how to achieve beautiful aesthetic results by decreasing muscle contraction in a designed and organized fashion. Effective training programs, like the IAPAM’s Symposium, should prepare doctors to effectively handle any adverse events both from a medical standpoint, as well as helping the patient to understand the situation.  Marketing assistance is also very valuable, and good training seminars, like the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Workshop, discuss how to market services.”
