									   2012 Statistics Show That Botox Training Will Help Physicians
                       Grow Their Practices
 The economy is seeing an upturn and so too is the aesthetic medical industry.
   The ASPS published that cosmetic procedures, both surgical and minimally
  invasive were up 5% over 2011. The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium
   offers the most comprehensive, hands on, live demonstration and didactic
instruction in all of the top 5 non-invasive procedures that the ASPS reports on,
and offers unparalleled business support to physicians as they build successful
 aesthetic medical practices and capture the continued growth in the minimally-
                               invasive market in 2013.

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - February 26, 2013 – Surgical procedures grew only by 1%
in 2012, but non-surgical treatments, such as botox, dermal fillers and chemical peels
grew by 6%. "More people are turning to the more inexpensive non-invasive
procedures rather than surgical cosmetic procedures," says Jeff Russell, Executive
Director of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine
(http://www.iapam.com). "They may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with
a combination treatment of botox and dermal fillers, then can get a great result at a
fraction of the price." In the recent report from The American Society of Plastic
Surgeons (ASPS), there were 13 million non-surgical procedures performed in 2012,
and as in 2011, in 2012, the top five minimally-invasive procedures were:

- Botulinum toxin type A (6.1 million procedures, up 8 percent)
- Soft tissue fillers (2 million procedures, up 5 percent)
- Chemical peel (1.1 million procedures, up 2 percent)
- Laser hair removal (1.1 million procedures, up 4 percent)
- Microdermabrasion (974,000 procedures, up 8 percent)

"For the third consecutive year, the overall growth in cosmetic surgery continues to be
driven by a significant rise in minimally-invasive procedures," confirmed Dr. Gregory
Evans, MD, President of the ASPS.

Jeff Russell concurs. "We are hearing from our members that minimally invasive
procedures like botox and other cosmetic injectables, medically supervised hCG weight
loss (http://www.hcgtraining.com) as well as laser treatments, 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 with botox training
(http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com), has steadily increased in the last 6
months. 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."

In line with these findings, the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium provides a
forum for physicians to immerse themselves in hands-on and live demonstration
training on these top 5 minimally invasive procedures. Leading the faculty is a team of
renowned, board-certified 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 botox training is done in a clean, multi-million dollar medical facility,
not a hotel room chair.
