					Botox ® Training and Beyond: The IAPAM Offers Education in the
                 Top 5 Non-Surgical Treatments
   The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium offers the most comprehensive
clinical botox ® training for physicians looking to add aesthetic medicine to their
   existing practices, or to launch a new medical spa. The IAPAM's Symposium
    offers training in all the top 5 minimally invasive modalities, to ensure that
     physicians add both in-demand procedures and maximum profit to their
                                       practices.

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - September 18, 2012 -- At the IAPAM's
(http://www.iapam.com) Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training,
physicians learn botox ® best practices as well as how to incorporate other
complementary aesthetic procedures like physician directed skincare and chemical
peels into a successful practice.

While injectables are important, physicians have found that more profit can be realized
by packaging injectables with other modalities, such as microdermabrasion or laser
skin rejuvenation.

In the newest video in the IAPAM's Symposium Preview video series, Jeff Russell,
Executive Director of the IAPAM, outlines the economic benefits of packaging
injectables with other modalities, such as medical microderm, chemical peels or
physician directed skin care, and the IAPAM's Symposium offers instruction in all these
aesthetic medicine modalities.

IAPAM's NEW Video: Botox ® Training Tips for a Financially Profitable Aesthetic
Practice

In the aforementioned video, Mr. Russell explains that there is little profit in only
offering Botox ®. One only makes $100-150 a patient and the physician only sees a
patient 3 times a year, so for an entire year one makes $300-450 for one Botox ®
patient. Whereas, the cost to provide a chemical peel treatment is $25 ($20 labour, $5
products) and the retail is typically around $125, so the profit is $100, and the patient
needs to come back once a month, so with a chemical peel patient, the physician
makes $1,200/year versus $300-450 for a Botox ® patient. The IAPAM's Symposium
teaches is how to combine these modalities so physicians can make $1,650/year per
patient (plus another $300-500 on skin care and mineral makeup sales).
What is important to the IAPAM is that when physicians finish the weekend, they have
everything they need to start offering aesthetics procedures right afterwards. That is
why the IAPAM also includes a 19 DVD training kit, that covers all of the operational
parts of an aesthetic practice as well as a clinical overview of Botox ® and dermal filler
injections.

Finally, Mr. Russell shares that, "we are hearing from our members that physician
directed skin care, as well as chemical peels and microdermabrasion are in
tremendous demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in the
demand for our Symposium training. Physicians are realizing they not only need to
offer botox ® treatments to their patients, but also laser hair removal, IPL skin
rejuvenation, etc. Organizations, like the IAPAM, educate doctors on how to package
treatments for the most appealing and profitable outcomes." Mr. Russell has also
received comments from IAPAM members regarding "the importance of adding an
hCG/medical weight management offering to patients, in order to grow a practice."
