The IAPAM is the leading provider of microdermabrasion training for physicians. An important part of operating a successful aesthetic practice or medical spa is providing skin rejuvenation procedures with microdermabrasion.
The IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium represent the most comprehensive minimally invasive modality training for physicians new to the aesthetic medicine field. With microdermabrasion being a very popular treatment, you will have the opportunity for hands-on microdermabrasion training at the aesthetic conference.
Medical microdermabrasion is a resurfacing procedure with an abrasive instrument that mechanically sands the skin to remove some of the top skin layer (epidermis) and stimulate new skin growth. By removing the outer skin layers and smoothing the treated skin the physician can achieve a rejuvenated appearance. Using micro-particles, or a diamond-tipped wand, the plastic surgeon uses a device, like a fine sandblaster, to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
This technique is used to treat substantial scarring, discoloration, and sun damage, as well as:
- reduce wrinkles
- tighten loose skin
- improve skin tone and color
- remove blotchiness
- eliminate damaged blood vessels
The IAPAM focuses on training physicians and their medical staff in the best practices for device-based aesthetic medicine treatments using medical grade microdermabrasion equipment.
