As part of the IAPAM’s mission to provide enduring botox training, the IAPAM is proud to provide all the training and resources needed for physicians who are new to aesthetic medicine to safely add botox, lasers, dermal fillers etc. to a practice, including how to safely source botox.
In a recent news article, “Federal drug regulators said that five Arizona doctors and nurse practitioners are among more than 350 practices nationwide that may have received a Canadian drug supplier’s shipment of unapproved Botox that could be counterfeit or unsafe.” The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Injection Training and Dermal Filler Training provides physicians with all the resources, information and tools to effectively and safely deliver minimally invasive treatments to their patients, including training on how to safely and properly source Botox , dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectable products.
The IAPAM has also created a NEW “Best Practices” video series, including a video specifically on “Botox Injection Training – Buying Cheap Botox from Canada” which can be viewed at http://youtu.be/ISDGmNAQXXA
The IAPAM teaches physicians who attend its Symposiums:
1. Botox buyer beware
The IAPAM ( http://www.iapam.com ) teaches that “botox-like” injectables should never be purchased through the internet. The red-flags associated with internet offerings range from unrealistically low pricing to a lack of knowledge regarding the potential side affects that can accompany the administration of a neurotoxin into the body. Also, it’s important to ensure the vial being used is not counterfeit; look for the 3-d hologram to ensure its is the FDA approved product,” says IAPAM executive-director, Jeff Russell.
2. IAPAM trained physicians are comprehensively educated in all cosmetic injectable outcomes
Physicians should complete a comprehensive, clinical training programs like the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, to ensure they are expertly trained in botox and other minimally invasive treatments. This translates into ensuring that they are trained in the latest injection techniques, how to safely source Botox, dermal fillers and other injectables, and are comfortable with dealing with any possible adverse event due to these procedure. Also, by becoming a member ( http://iapam.com/aboutiapam/membership ) of the IAPAM, physicians are recognized as a member of an internationally accredited aesthetic association. The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium training includes:
- dedicated instruction from board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables;
- hands-on practice in the best injection techniques;
- botox training at a multi-million dollar medical practice, not in a hotel room; and
- an environment that does not allow exhibitors, giving doctors more time for education.
