IAPAM Announces Next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium Dates: April 5-6

The IAPAM has announced the next dates for its respected Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: April 5-6, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ.

IAPAM

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (February 20, 2014) — Obamacare promises to make changes that will hopefully help the masses, but clearly there are a number of challenges that physicians will face as a result. However, medical practices can thrive by adding ‘non-insurance based services’ to their portfolio, such as dermal fillers, botox injections, anti-aging treatments, non-invasive body sculpting, and medically supervised weight management. To assist physicians in profitably adding these procedures and programs to their practices, the IAPAM has announced the next dates for its respected Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: April 5-6, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ.

There has been much talk in the media and physician community regarding the Affordable Care Act, well known as ‘Obamacare’ or the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ (PPACA). Many physicians members are concerned about how this new program will impact the health of their patients and the health of their medical practices.

However, there is evidence that by adding non-invasive treatments to a practice, such as botox, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion/microchanneling, chemical peels, body contouring technologies (e.g. skin tightening, fat reduction), lasers for skin rejuvenation/tattoo removal/hair removal, and medically supervised weight management programs (e.g. hCG Diet), would increase the income a practice is able to make as payments will have to be made directly and immediately to undergo these procedures.

To support physicians seeking both clinical and business training in adding these aesthetic modalities, the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) designed its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium to give physicians all the information, forms, DVDs, hands-on training, etc. they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference.

The IAPAM is the only complete program that offers:

– An Accelerated program; physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
– Clinical training DVDs to take back to one’s practice;
– Board Certified Dermatologists as instructors;
– Internationally Recognized Certification;
– CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
– 1 Year of Practice Support (which continues as long as one is a member);
– And much, much, more!

“The IAPAM has noticed a sharp increase in the registrations for its cosmetic procedures hands-on CME training programs like botox/fillers, lasers, medical microdermabrasion, and non-invasive body shaping; along with its medically supervised weight loss program, all of which are not insurance covered and affect a majority of their existing patients,” says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com). “Patients may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with a combination treatment of botox, dermal fillers, weight loss, etc. they can get a great result at a fraction of the price.”

IAPAM Announces Dates for Next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: December 7-8, 2013

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium was specifically designed as a “one-stop” program to add non-insurance based medical procedures to a practice, or to start a new medspa. The IAPAM announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona: December 7-8, 2013 with hands-on botox and laser tattoo removal training.

IAPAM

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (November 19, 2013) — The IAPAM’s guiding principle is enRICHing Physicians Lives. Our goal is to support physicians who have little or no business education, are over their head with student debt and now, with reduced insurance reimbursements, are looking for cash-based modalities to add to their practices and to add to their bottom lines.

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium was designed to give physicians all the information, forms, DVDs, hands-on training, etc. that they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference. As well, it is important to understand that botox is not a profit centre, just a gateway to make money with other aesthetic procedures. Only the IAPAM’s Symposium teaches physicians about this principle….. no one else is offering this competitive intelligence.

Indeed, while this is nothing new, offering non-insurance based procedures is more on the top of the minds to physicians lately, and the IAPAM understands this. The IAPAM is the only complete program that offers:

– An Accelerated program; physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
– 19 training DVD’s to take back to one’s practice;
– Board certified Dermatologists as instructors;
– Internationally recognized Certification;
– over 20 CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
– 1 Year practice support (continues as long as a member); and much, much, more!

“More patients 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.”

2012 Aesthetic Medicine Stats Confirm Botox Grows a Medical Practice

The economy is seeing an upturn and so too is the aesthetic medical industry. The ASPS, ASASP and the AAFPRS published that in 2012 cosmetic procedures, both surgical and minimally invasive were up over 2011.

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA – May 3, 2013 — The economy is seeing an upturn and so too is the aesthetic medical industry. The ASPS, ASASP and the AAFPRS published that in 2012 cosmetic procedures, both surgical and minimally invasive were up 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 these aesthetic medical association report 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.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that “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 ASPS, there were 13 million non-surgical procedures performed in 2012, and 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.

Equally, reports from the American Academy of Facial, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) confirms the increasing popularity of non-surgical treatments, notably, the number of men having botox, which was up 27% from 2011, with hyaluronic acid fillers and microdermabrasion also among the most popular maintenance treatments.

Finally, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) echoes the findings of the other aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery societies. “There were over 10 million surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2012. Surgical procedures accounted for 17% of the total number of procedures and 61% of the total expenditures, with nonsurgical procedures making up 83% of the total number of procedures and 39% of total expenditures,” and again, botox led the way in the number of procedures performed.

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.
