Aesthetic Training for Physicians

Botox training IAPAM

Physicians are actively looking for certified aesthetics training to meet the growing demand of their patients who are looking to turn back the hands of time. Aesthetic medicine training for physicians, which includes Botox® training courses, is a key part of any successful aesthetic medical practice.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2016 Americans spent more than 15 billion dollars on surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Minimally invasive / non – surgical procedures totaled to 44% of overall procedures.  Overall injectables (including Botox and Dermal Fillers) saw a 10% increase in 2016. The demand for facial aesthetics and other aesthetic procedures are growing and people are turning to non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures to look naturally younger. Organizations like the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) are helping physicians meet this unprecedented demand by offering non-surgical aesthetic training programs which includes Botox injection training, dermal filler training, laser training, microdermabrasion training, chemical peel training and training on how to run your aesthetic medicine business

Facial injectables such as Botox® are thought of as the most profitable aesthetic procedure, but it is actually not. However, it is a “must offer” procedure if you want to treat the #1 anti-aging request of your patients: wrinkles. The key to a successful, and more importantly, profitable practice is to not only offer Botox injections to your patients, but to also offer other complimentary aesthetic procedures, like laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and tattoo removal.

Hands-on Botox® injection training is necessary for any successful aesthetic medical practice or medispa. Physicians will find the IAPAM’s internationally recognized Botox® certification and aesthetic certification to be of utmost importance to their patients.

Start with Botox Training

When you look at the most requested minimally-invasive procedures, Botox ® injections always tops the list. There are many FDA approved botulinum toxins including Xeomin, Dysport and most popular of all, Botox. If you are going to add aesthetics to a medical practice or open a medical spa, you are going to need comprehensive Botox training classes for doctors in order to know how to perform Botox® injections and obtain a reputable Botox certification. It is important to have a solid knowledge of how to inject Botox and hands on experience to get started, so when you are evaluating Botox training classes, make sure they are led by true experts of the skin, and that live, hands-on training and techniques are included.

Other Profitable Aesthetic Procedures

As mentioned earlier, Botox is by far the most popular non-invasive aesthetic procedure, but if you want a profitable practice, you need to consider adding other cosmetic procedures such as laser procedures to your practice. Some of the more common laser procedures include treatments like laser hair removal, tattoo removal, skin rejuvenation, treating acne, and other anti-aging procedures. Many doctors find offering laser procedures to be, not only very lucrative but also very rewarding.  When looking for laser training classes, you want to make sure it is CME approved and includes world class techniques and live, hands-on training.

Chemical Peel Training for Physicians

One of the most profitable and minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures is Chemical Peels. You may not have very many patients asking for chemical peels, but you may have people asking you to treat melasma, hyper pigmentation, acne, smoothing rough and dry skin, treating fine lines and surface wrinkles. Chemical peels can positively deal with these conditions. Adding chemical peels to your aesthetic practice is important and part of any comprehensive clinical training for physicians.

Microdermabrasion and Micro-Needling Training for Physicians

One procedure that goes along with Chemical Peels, is microdermabrasion. Many people confuse microdermabrasion and chemical peels, however, it is not the same.  In a medical spa or physician owned aesthetic practice, offering microdermabrasion and micro-needling procedures is a key weapon against aging. Minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments will help your patients turn back the hands of time and feel younger.
