The use of exfoliating agents to reveal younger looking skin dates back to ancient Egypt, when sour milk baths were used to soothe the skin and salt and brimstone were used to exfoliate and produce a more elegant appearance.
Today, the desire to look younger remains, but thankfully, no brimstone is required. Now skin rejuvenation treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels guarantee long lasting and immediate results without recovery time or the use of anesthesia.
Medical professionals who take part in IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium will not only learn the latest techniques for minimally-invasive treatments including Botox, dermal fillers, and light procedures, they’ll also receive Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion Training from leaders in aesthetic medicine who have spent years perfecting their techniques.
The Many Benefits of Adding Chemical Peels to Grow Your Practice
Chemical peels are one of the quickest and effective treatments for the reduction of wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin pigmentation and can also be used to treat common skin conditions including acne, melasma, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. The ability to treat such a variety of skin issues makes chemical peels an ideal addition for your medical spa or practice.
Not only are chemical peels one of the most popular non-invasive skin procedures – more than one million are performed every year – they are also one of the most profitable. A typical chemical peel costs about $25 to perform, but often results in $125 in revenue for your practice.
Chemical peels are most commonly performed to enhance appearance, but they may also remove pre-cancerous skin growths, soften acne scarring and control acne. In certain cases, health insurance may cover the peel procedure.
Medical Microdermabrasion: Ideal for Every Patient Seeking Younger Looking Skin
Since first being introduced in the US in 1996, microdermabrasion has become one of the most sought-after treatments by people seeking a cost-effective, non-invasive procedure for healthier, younger looking skin. Microdermabrasion can be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types, has minimal risk for dyschromia, infection or scarring and has a rapid recovery time.
Microdermabrasion, and now microneedling, is commonly used to treat substantial scarring, discoloration, and sun damage, but it can also reduce wrinkles, tighten loose skin and improve skin tone and color.
IAPAM’s Chemical Peel & Microdermabrasion Training
Participants in IAPAM’s Chemical Peel and Microdermabrasion Training will learn from expert dermatologists who have years of performing the procedure in their own practice. In keeping with best practices as outlined by the FDA, classes are conducted at a medical facility, not in a hotel room. In addition, our class sizes are small to allow individual attention to your specific needs.
IAPAM’s Chemical Peel & Microdermabrasion Training Includes:
- Thorough and extensive exploration of chemical peel and microdermabrasion techniques and how various chemical solutions can improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers.
- Live demonstrations and hands-on training with aesthetic medicine experts
- Opportunity to try microneedling, the newest advancement in microdermabrasion, on your own skin
- A take-home chemical peel training kit for practice on friends and family
Physicians who attend the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium will also receive an opportunity to visit a fully operating medical spa to see an example of how to setup a chemical peel treatment room.
Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and microneedling are effective and safe options for every patient who wants to enjoy younger looking skin. They are also great ways to add revenue to your practice and create a loyal and highly satisfied customer/patient base that keeps coming back – to look and feel better.
