IAPAM’s Botox Training

Botox Training Course & Certification

If you’ve been paying attention to the latest trends in beauty and skin care, 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. In fact, there is no single product or “anti-aging” cream or home remedy that will eliminate wrinkles, crow’s feet, deep lines, or defy the aging process as quickly as Botox®. With 50,000 adults turning 50 every year, the demand for cosmetic injectables has never been greater

How to get Botox Certified? 

1) Have the necessary requirements for attending a Botox Training course:

A person must have a valid medical license in their state/province or other country where they reside to be able to be Botox certified. You will need to provide proof of your designation upon enrollment to a Botox certification course. Without a valid medical license, you are not able to get Botox certified.

If you are unsure of this, you would need to contact your State medical board to find out what the requirements are.

For Botox training at the IAPAM, if you have a foreign medical designation, you can certainly come to any of our training events, but you cannot do any injecting during the training. Foreign doctors who have immigrated to the USA or Canada  (and have not passed the Board exams for licensing), can attend but not inject.

Also, the IAPAM Botox training 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.

Only those who have the requirements to perform the Botox injections during the IAPAM Botox training course receive the CME credits and Botox certification.
2) Seek out and enroll in a Botox Training course

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

3) Attend a Botox Training course

The IAPAM is now  in its 10th year providing Hands-on, CME Botox Training to physicians 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 training course you will receive a certification from the Botox training provider and in most cases CE/CME credits. Congratulations! You are now ready to start administering Botox treatments to your Botox patients!

The future for Botox® is promising. Not only is it today the most popular cosmetic 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 Botox Training course is 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. Included with the program will be a take home clinical DVD set, so you can review the techniques you learned over the weekend.

IAPAM Hands-On Botox Training Course Overview:

botox_trainingUnlike other Botox injection training programs, the IAPAM’s program is taught by board certified Dermatologists in a clean medical clinic. As per FDA guidelines, we never inject Botox in a hotel room. There are two reasons we don’t do training in hotel rooms: (1) hotel rooms are not considered “clean” environments, and (2) you cannot learn the right injection technique 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.

Once completed, not only will you be ready to start seeing patients the next day, you will also earn up to 32.5 AMA CME credits.

Learn the Latest Botox Injection Techniques

Botox_Training At the Symposium, our Board Certified dermatologists will teach you proper techniques and expert injection tips in our medical aesthetics 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 Injection 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 is pain management for Botox injections.
