According to Forbes, “the anti-aging market is positioned to reach $271 billion by 2024.” The article also says that between 2000 and 2018, Botox injection procedures increased 845%. We can attribute much of this growth to a rise in demand for anti-aging treatments, normalization of the wellness industry, and lowering costs. But an often overlooked part of this growth has to do with aesthetic work expanding beyond plastic surgeon’s offices.
Today physicians, OB/GYNs, dentists, and dermatologists are expanding their services to include aesthetic treatments. For some, it’s due to customer demand. For others, providing aesthetic services is a means to boost revenue and provide better patient care. Some are merely interested in the field. Consumers have no problem seeking out treatments for dermal fillers and Botox outside of the traditional plastic surgery space, which is why so many medical professionals are enrolling in aesthetics courses. And more and more are looking to do so in a small capacity.
Previously, this choice was based on busy schedules and the impracticality of travel. But now, with the COVID-19 pandemic still going strong, many are looking for virtual training as a way to maintain their social distancing measures while expanding their continuing education.
For those interested in a online aesthetics training program, there’s never been a better time to enroll.
Thanks to The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS), geography no longer has to be a barrier to aesthetics training. The Beverly Hills, California-based organization brings training to you through its comprehensive online aesthetics courses designed and led by leading experts in the field.
Since 2006, AAAMS has trained over 5,000 physicians, nurses, and practitioners both in-person and online. To meet the needs of the global health community, courses aren’t limited to English either. AAAMS offers studies in five different languages to make training as accessible as possible.
AAAMS course catalog has included the following:
- Aesthetics 101 Training
- Aesthetics 102 Training
- Basic and Advanced Botulinum Toxin and Fillers Preceptorships
- PRP Training
- TCA Peel and Basic Laser Training
- Express Liposuction
- Advanced Liposuction Preceptorship
- Basic and Advanced Fat Grafting Preceptorship
- RinoLook Training
- The “One-Hour” Facelift Training
- Serdev’s Suture Suspension Lift (SSL): SMAS Lift
But, in light of the global health crisis, AAAMS is answering the call to provide virtual learning opportunities, and right now, healthcare workers can sign up for online courses in:
- CE Approved Facial Aesthetics Master Program
- The Facial Mannequin Training Program
- Contemporary Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
- Self-Paced Introduction to Business of Aesthetics Online Course
From exploring how aesthetic services can benefit your practice to gaining hands-on training to offer aesthetic procedures, such as Botox and dermal fillers training, AAAMS has developed a curriculum based on science using the latest research and techniques.
Course objectives cover the full breadth of training necessary to succeed, from facial anatomy to how to recognize the important structures of the face regarding dermal fillers and their appropriate uses. AAAMS has designed its curriculum to ensure students can take their skills and apply them in a practical clinical setting.
And to ensure aesthetics courses can reach as many practitioners as possible, AAAMS has designed its courses not to be cost-prohibitive. The CE Accredited Facial Aesthetics 101 Series by Dr. Sam Assassa, for instance, is only $1350 — a bargain when one considers that the average botox service can cost that much or more.
And enrollment is easy. Those interested merely need to sign up to be given immediate access to the course work, which in the case above, includes 2 hours of lecture and training video content from Dr. Assassa himself.
Surely there’s an exam, you might be wondering. You guessed right. While AAAMS courses won’t feel like a return to medical or dental school, to receive your diploma, participants must exhibit proficiency by earning a passing score of 70% on the exam to receive credit.
Then, AAAMS promises that a certificate will immediately be available to print as well as emailed to you. Successful members will also receive a virtual badge of completion showcasing their achievements.
The asynchronous course design allows busy professionals to get trained on their own time. Rather than fly into California and squeeze in a hectic course over a weekend, AAAMS understands that time constraints and travel just don’t always make in-person courses practical. Instead, receive instruction from the best in the business from the comfort of your computer, be it at your work desk or home office.
