Physicians can Capture Growing Botox Market with IAPAM’s Hands-On Botox Training

March 2, 2011 |

A new report shows that the market for botox, dermal fillers and other minimally-invasive procedures is growing at a rate of 9% annually, and capturing this market will require hands-on, physician-lead botox training like that offered by the IAPAM at its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium.

The market for botox treatments and dermal filler procedures is growing. In a recent report published by GlobalData, “the global market for facial aesthetics is forecast to reach about $4 billion in 2017 at a compound annual growth rate of 9%. The growth is expected to be driven by minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures that offer long term results at competitive pricing.” The key to capturing this growing market is by engaging in comprehensive, hands-on, physician-lead Botox Training like that offered at the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Training (

Through discussions with its members, and by analyzing recent healthcare market research, the IAPAM ( has identified that in the 4Q of 2010, and the 1Q of 2011, physicians are performing more botox injections and other cosmetic injectable procedures, more chemical peel treatments, more laser skin re-surfacing procedures, and more medical microdermabrasions vs. more invasive treatments.  To support this market growth, the IAPAM is offering physician-lead, multi-day, multi-procedure educational programs like its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, which focuses on Botox Training (, as well as the other TOP 4 minimally invasive modalities:  dermal fillers, medical grade chemical peels, clinical microdermabrasion, and lasers for skin rejuvenation and hair removal. 

Dates for the upcoming 2011 IAPAM Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona, are: 

April 16-17, 2011; and
June 4-5, 2011. 

For more advanced Botox Training and Dermal Filler Training, the IAPAM also offers its respected Botox/Dermal Filler Training Bootcamp in Toronto, Canada. The next Botox/Filler Bootcamps will be held on:
April 2-3, 2011;   and     
May 14-15, 2011.      
Finally, the 2011 dates for the IAPAM’s Advanced Dermal Filler Training in Toronto, Canada, are:
April 1, 2011; and                   
May 13, 2011.   

The key to growing a medical practice or medical spa in 2011 is to offer lower cost, short-term procedures (i.e. injectables, chemical peels, skin care and medical microdermabrasion) versus higher cost, long-term procedures (i.e. face lifts, breast augmentation). To capture this market in 2011 and beyond, doctors must seek out “all-inclusive” training programs, offered in medical facilities not hotel rooms, and lead by physicians and aesthetic medicine business experts, such as the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Seminars, and the IAPAM’s Botox and Dermal Filler Programs.
