IAPAM’s Botox Training

Botox Training

Botox Training Course & Certification

If you’ve been paying attention to the latest trends in beauty, skin care and facial aesthetics, you already understand that in order to provide the best aesthetic medicine options to your patients, Botox training is absolutely essential part of any aesthetic practice. Improve your education and GROW your practice with Botox certification. In fact, there is no single product, “anti-aging” cream or home remedy that will eliminate wrinkles, crow’s feet, glabella, frown and any other deep facial lines, or defy the aging process as quickly as Botox®. With the number of Americans ages 65 and older growing to more than double from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060, the demand for cosmetic injectables and anti-wrinkle treatments  has never been greater.

How to become Botox certified?

1) Have the necessary Botox certification requirements:

You will need to provide proof of your designation and valid medical license upon enrollment to a Botox injection class. Without this, you cannot get certified.

For Botox training at the IAPAM, physicians from foreign countries who have immigrated to the USA or Canada, but have not passed the USMLE exams for licensing, can attend but not inject.

We accept all PAs, NP’s, RN’s, LPN/LVN’s into our injectables training, however these medical practitioners should always check with their state boards to see if there are any restrictions in their scope of practice. Please note that RN’s and LPN’s can only attend under an IAPAM member.

Also, the IAPAM allows non-medical individuals to attend however they are not eligible to do any Botox injecting and they can only attend with someone who has an MD, DO, PA, NP, ND/NMD (depending on state) or dentist designation.

Can anyone attend Botox Training? The answer is yes, however, only those who have the requirements to perform Botox injections during the IAPAM Botox course will receive CME credits and Botox certification.
2) Seek out and enroll in a course

When looking for a Botox workshop, you should look for one that is reputable, accredited and follows FDA recommendations. It is also advised to seek out one that is held in a clean medical facility and that hands-on training is provided so that you also have the opportunity to learn how to inject Botox. Many of these courses also provide CME/CE credits and certification once you have completed the course.

3) Attend a training program

The IAPAM is now  in its 13th year providing Hands-on, CME Botox Training to physicians, nurses, dentists and other licensed healthcare providers, the IAPAM’s industry-leading 5-Step Botox Training Protocol is the fastest way for you to incorporate aesthetics into an existing medical practice or stand-alone medical spa.

4) Attain your Botox certification

After you have completed your Botox CME education you will receive a certification from the training provider and in most cases CME/CE credits. Congratulations! You are now ready to start offering Botox treatments to your patients! Start GROWING your practice!

The future for Botox® is promising as it is one of the most popular anti-aging face treatments. Not only is it today the most popular cosmetic injection treatment in North America but as baby boomers age and want to hold on to their youthful appearance, the demand for Botox® – and skilled Botox® practitioners – is predicted to rise even more.

We know you have limited time, and the IAPAM’s industry leading cosmetic injectables training are designed to get you up and injecting by the end of the weekend! It all starts with the pre-work you are sent before the hands-on CME workshop.

IAPAM Hands-On Workshop:

Botox techniques Unlike other Botox training programs, the IAPAM’s program is taught by board certified Dermatologists in a clean medical clinic with training stations. As per FDA guidelines, we never inject Botox in a hotel room because: (1) hotel rooms are not considered “clean” environments, and (2) you cannot learn how to become a proper Botox injector if your patient is sitting in a hotel room meeting chair.

After our dermatologist gives you the botulinum toxin training didactic, we move on to small group hands-on workshops. This gives you the opportunity to perform injections on live patients. All botulinum toxin product, supplies (ie needles, gloves, charts) and patients will be provided during the Botox class.

Once completed, not only will you know how to give Botox injections the next day, you will also earn up to 31 AMA Cat 1 CME credits.



Learn the Latest Botox Administration Techniques

Hands on Botox® TrainingAt the Symposium, our Board Certified dermatologists will teach you proper techniques and expert injection tips in our medical training facility in proper patient treatment chairs (not hotel chairs, which are too low for proper injection technique). As part of our 5-Step Botox Training Protocol, you will receive facial injection charts for you to use during the hands-on training. You will also have access to our clinical library of Botox treatments, including: treating a gummy smile, hyperhydrosis, and many other in-demand treatment protocols. Since patient comfort is important, we will also cover the latest in pain management for Botox injections.
