Advanced Botox Training & Dermal Filler Training

Botox trainingThe IAPAM has two different programs for physicians:  (1) Aesthetic Medicine Symposium w/Botox training, and  (2) The Advanced Botox/Filler 2 Day Bootcamp.

If you do not have any, or very limited Botox injection experience, you should first attend the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium. This program will give you the building blocks necessary, to get the most out of this program.

If you have completed the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium or have at least 3 months experience injecting botulinum toxins (i.e. Xeomin®, Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®), and want more advanced Botox® and Filler training, the following Botox®/Filler Training Bootcamp is for you.

This course has recently been enhanced to provide access to an exclusive and comprehensive online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This university-standard learning platform focuses on the theoretical component of the course and contains videos, images, quizzes and case studies. While the Virtual Learning Environment is rich in valuable content requiring 35 to 40 hours for completion, it is also both interactive and engaging! All course registrants are required to complete the VLE prior to attendance of their weekend course.

What Physicians are Saying:

“Patricia has been an excellent source of information for me after she provided training services (to my practice) for Botox/Dermal Filler training. Her training style is exceptional in that not only does she walk one through every single detail of training but is always available for questions and support. This is an indispensable aspect of service when starting a new business. I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in obtaining hands on training for Aesthetic services. She will more than live up to her reputation”. ~ Dr. S. Sheik, MD

“I wanted to express my appreciation for your “boot camp” course in Toronto.  I had some experience with these techniques from taking other “hands on” courses, but really I still felt lacking in my knowledge and expertise. No longer!! I finally had a true hands on experience encompassing all aspects of the proper and safe use of Botox and Facial fillers on more than 10 patients….that Patricia is exceptionally qualified and is a patient, supportive mentor able to explain and expound information so it is easy to understand and retain. I learned assessment, anatomy, physiology and how to correct possible problems but most important how to deliver great results by avoiding problems. Bar none this course and this instructor are far and away worth the trip to Toronto and once the wise student completes the course he or she will recognize it’s tremendous value for the price.”  ~ Dr. Bernstein, M.D.

“I am pleased to send a positive report on the botox/filler training over the weekend. Patricia is a real expert both on content and on education. She taught in a calm, clear, and effective way, with a minimum of didacticism and a maximum of practicality. In the style of the best medical education, it was hands on nearly from the get-go, with demonstration, then direct supervision. The atmosphere was collegial. There was an excellent mix of patients. No time was wasted. The one-on-one training justified the cost. I particularly enjoyed the overwhelmingly favorable patient response. After years of traditional medicine, “Wow” factor is a pleasant surprise. Recommended to anyone getting started in this field.” ~ Dr. Carroll, MD, PhD

“Just got back from Botox and Filler Boot Camp–had a FANTASTIC experience!! Well worth my time, money and travel. Not only do I now feel much more comfortable and confident in my ability to provide a good service, but I now have a better understanding of the technical and artistic side of Botox and Dermal filler. Anyone, like myself, who hasn’t had any experience in this area of aesthetics should take this course. Even individuals who have some experience will find it extremely helpful. Besides, the folks that teach it were great. Not only technically skilled, but also fun to work with. Rest assured, I will be going back to Canada for advanced filler training after I get some experience with the basic stuff!!” ~ Dr. Elliott, MD

“This is a true hands on course, in my view, the only way one can confidently succeed in implementing such practice. It is a good follow up after Scottsdale Symposium. The case variety included the full range of Botox and filler applications currently in use. By itself, the case selection seemed an amazing task.  much enjoyed the true life – real office experience of managing patients – from the initial interview, to the co-discovery of possibilities for treatment to the actual treatment and in several occasions, short term follow up. ” ~ Dr. Larhs, MD

“Just wanted to tell you what a great weekend I had in Toronto. Patricia and her staff are among the most talented professionals I’ve met in this field. Her scheduling was flawless, and her attention to details made the day flow smoothly. She tailored the training to exactly what I needed. She and her staff have a way of putting everyone who walks through the door of the spa instantly at ease. There is no doubt in my mind that one day with her has given me a considerable competitive edge in my market of aesthetics.” ~ Dr. Twyman

“Thoroughly impressed by the quality, level, and depth of the training.  Patricia is truly an exceptional teacher!  She is very methodical in her assessment and injection technique and teaches this process with each patient and each student.   I feel that I learned more in the past 2 days than I have in the past 2 years when it comes to treating the aesthetic patient!  I feel comfortable with all the product lines and now know when and in which locations in the face to use the various products.  I am very thankful for such a quality experience.” –  Dr. Bedrick, DO
