FAQs

Why should I choose to attend the IAPAM Aesthetic Medicine Symposium?

The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox Cosmetic Training, is one of the very few Aesthetic Medicine/ Medical Spa training programs which is not operated or sponsored by equipment distributors, consultants or nurses.

The goal of the symposium is to give you all the information you need to immediately start adding Aesthetic Medicine and Botox Cosmetic procedures to your practice.

The IAPAM is the only provider of aesthetic medical training courses that has 5 board certified cosmetic dermatologists on its teaching faculty, ensuring the best possible education for the attendees.

Unlike other programs that say they have dermatologists or plastic surgeons on their faculty (who are often not at the actual training program), we actually list them on our faculty page.

Our Botulinum Toxin (Xeomin®, Dysport®, Botox®) training is done in a clean medical facility, not a hotel room.

Your cosmetic injectable training environment will be similar to your practice, since the injection technique for injecting a patient in a hotel room chair is much different, than a patient in a proper medical treatment table (chair).

The IAPAM offers the most comprehensive on-going support.

We also include a year of telephone/e-mail support for any medical spa or aesthetic practice questions.

Members also gain access to the IAPAM Member Only social networking groups, including LinkedIn.

But I only need Botox training?

Botulinum Toxins (i.e. Xeomin, Dysport, Botox) are one of the most competitive aesthetic procedures.

If you base your aesthetic practice or medical spa on offering only Botulinum Toxin injections, you are going to have a very hard time being profitable.

By attending the Symposium, you are going to learn from an expert faculty on the right way to setup an aesthetic practice and how to choose the most profitable aesthetic procedures.

Incorporating Botulinum Toxins is certainly part of a successful practice, and we dedicate 3/4 of a day on the topic.

However, you will also learn about much more profitable aesthetic procedures that have very little start-up costs.

You can read more on this here: https://www.aestheticmedicinenews.com/the-secret-to-a-profitable-aesthetic-practice-or-medical-spa.htm

Why is it only held in Scottsdale, Arizona?

We feel it is critical that physicians adding aesthetics to their practice learn from true experts of the skin, and that is why we have board certified dermatologists who teach you about the skin and injectables.

In addition, part of the program includes you visiting a successful medical spa practice where you can see first hand how the practice is setup, and how skin care lines are merchandized.

Plus, we follow the FDA’s recommendation and do not have injections done in hotel rooms, but an actual medical practice.

100% of our attendees have said the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium was worth the time and money! 

How many CME credits are available?

This Live activity, Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, is acceptable for up to 33.5 Prescribed credit(s) by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

You will also be provided with some pre-symposium work to ensure that you make the most of your time at the symposium.

AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1.

All nursing boards treat AAFP CME credits as equivalent.

How much of the training is hands-on?

You will find over 40% of the time will be spent with an opportunity for hands-on training.

I'm a Nurse Practitioner, can I attend?

Absolutely. Please be advised that Botox is a prescription drug, and you either need to have prescribing authority in your State, or you will need to work with a physician. 

If you are an NP, please check out our IAPAM blog post on a Practical Tips for Expanding Your Practice.

I'm a dentist can I attend?

Yes, however you should check with your local licensing board to ensure performing these procedures is within your scope of practice. Please review all the benefits of the IAPAM’s Symposium for dentists.

I'm an RN/LPN/PA can I attend?

Yes, PAs can attend at the physician price (unless they are attending as an assistant to a physician, then they can pay the assistant price).

Licensed medical staff and practice/business managers can certainly attend with their supervising physicians.

If your supervising physician doesn’t attend, then you may attend at the regular physician price (based on availability). As well, we will need a letter of authorization from your Medical Director to attend in his or her place (assuming they are already trained in Aesthetics).

Will I receive a Certificate?

Yes, you will receive a CME certificate which is required by many medical malpractice insurance providers.

What is the credit transferability of our CME’s according to medical designation?

CMEs are accepted as equivalent credits for physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.  Dentists should contact the ADA in their state to inquire about specific transferability of AAFP CMEs.

Do you offer a Board Certification in Aesthetic Medicine?

Currently, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) does not offer board certification in Aesthetic Medicine. This is the only organization that is official able to designate “board certifications” in medicine in the United States.

When it does, we will work with them to offer official board certification to our members.

The ABMS currently states: “antiaging is not a medical specialty, according to the American Medical Association and the American Board of Medical Specialties (which puts the “board” in “board-certified”).”

The IAPAM does offer our exclusive Certified Aesthetic Provider™ (CAP) program, which can be used when insurance companies or state boards are requesting an annual “board-certification” in order to provide coverage for aesthetic medicine. This certification is also a good tool for you to use in your practice to demonstrate to patients that you are remaining current on your skills and training in aesthetic medicine from a trusted international organization and saves you time by keeping you up to date on the latest industry trends and training.

Which Botulinum Toxin products do you use in the Botox training?

We use either Xeomin from Merz Aesthetics, Inc, Botox Cosmetic® from Allergan, Inc. or Dysport® from Medicis, Inc.

Which Chemical Peel products do you use in the training?

We use PCA Skin‘s chemical peel products and educators during the chemical peel portion of the training.

The education you will learn is transferable to all physician directed chemical peel product lines.

Which Laser/IPL do you use in the training?

We use Cartessa Aesthetics. Please note, the science behind IPL and Laser technology and the procedures you will learn are transferable to all IPL and Laser platforms.

I have already purchased an IPL/Laser, will I benefit?

Absolutely, you will also learn some great tips and techniques on how to perform laser and light procedure patient consultations.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. Please call us at 1-800-485-5759 to discuss options for a payment plan.

Are only certain specialties allow to sign up for training?​

Not at all! So long as you are a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant with a current medical license, it does not matter what your specialty is, you are eligible to take our training!

We’ve trained providers from all different specialties include psychiatry, emergency, family medicine, internal medicine, naturopathic medicine, dentistry and more! 

What is your cancellation policy?

All training fees are non-refundable. 

If for some reason you cannot attend the symposium you must give at least 14 days’ notice to receive a full credit for a future symposium otherwise a $500 re-booking charge will apply (to cover printing and hotel expenses incurred). 

You can read the full cancellation policy here.
