Join the IIAM faculty to learn the fastest growing, and one of the most potentially profitable cosmetic procedures in North America! You will be amazed by how enjoyable it is to work with motivated, compliant patients who wish to improve their appearance and/or look more youthful. This can be accomplished in very little time using Cosmetic Neuromodulators and Fillers. Most patients report high satisfaction and an improved sense of well-being. This is a highly positive environment for medical professionals who may be growing tired of the daily stress of traditional medical practice. It can be incorporated readily into an existing practice for two half-days per week. The potential income far exceeds health insurance plans.

This in-depth, introductory virtual course covers topics including facial anatomy, topical anesthesia, consultation process, clinical applications, complication protocols, and brand information for both Neuromodulators and Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. The Cosmetic Neuromodulators and Fillers course will provide interested physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other qualified medical professionals with all of the information they need to start working with patients right away.

After completing the course, practitioners will be granted the appropriate CME credits. However, because IIAM believes hands-on training is critical for success, only those who take our hands-on courses will receive a certificate from us for injecting.

Any physician who takes this course is immediately eligible to order Cosmetic Neuromodulators and Injectable HA Fillers from Allergan, Merz, Galderma, and other major suppliers. Nurses are required to work with a physician or nurse practitioner.


The International Institute of Aesthetic Medicine (IIAM) serves as your entry point to superior education in Medical Aesthetics. In collaboration with MedSpa Partners, a leader among aesthetic clinics, we boast a faculty meticulously chosen for their role as top trainers and specialists in the industry.
