Physicians Receive Botox Training from Leading Dermatologists at IAPAM’s Symposium

March 8, 2011 |

The IAPAM continues to offer the industry’s best clinical, hands-on, aesthetic medicine training in the most advanced botox and skin care procedures. The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is a weekend 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 a medical practice or medspa.
Over 850 physicians and their staff have attended the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums ( and hCG Training sessions (  These respected and well attended educational programs are designed for physicians eager to safely, profitably and successfully add botox, hCG medical weight loss, lasers for hair removal and skin rejuvenation, and other aesthetic modalities to their existing practices. The IAPAM’s Symposium is the only program which gives physicians an opportunity to learn from two board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts in 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.
Board certified dermatologist Dr. Jennifer Linder, who 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.  Botox 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.”
