Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The strength of the book is its completeness and clarity in the descriptions and rationales for injection placement for facial and neck rejuvenation and hyperhidrosis. Videos demonstrating the techniques of injection can be accessed using a code provided with the purchase of the book.

This is an excellent resource for both novices and experts in botulinum toxin usage. It is the only book that I have seen in which every chapter addresses the differences in doses and particular characteristics among the different botulinum toxin preparations." - Patricia Wong, MD(Stanford University Medical Center) Doody 4 stars

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: If you are searching for a go-to resource on how to properly inject botulinum toxin, this book is for you. The molecular mechanism of action, nuances of performing proper injections, and differences among the varied botulinum toxins currently available are covered in depth.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide current information on botulinum toxin administration and conditions for which it can be useful.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and their associated medical staff.
Features: There are photographs indicating sites where botulinum toxin injections should be performed along with anatomical drawings of facial and neck muscles showing the specific muscles that are being treated by the injections. The book details the specific muscles that are being blocked and their corresponding facial movements, and presents pitfalls to avoid when injecting and how to correct them if they occur. The strength of the book is its completeness and clarity in the descriptions and rationales for injection placement for facial and neck rejuvenation and hyperhidrosis. Videos demonstrating the techniques of injection can be accessed using a code provided with the purchase of the book.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for both novices and experts in botulinum toxin usage. It is the only book that I have seen in which every chapter addresses the differences in doses and particular characteristics among the different botulinum toxin preparations.

Dr. Alastair Carruthers, M.A., B.M.,B.Ch, FRCP(LON), FRCPC
Dr. Alastair Carruthers is a Cosmetic Dermasurgeon who operates his own clinical practice (Carruthers Dermatology Centre Inc.) in Vancouver, BC. He is also a Clinical Professor of Dermatology with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

During his 20 years of practice, Dr. Carruthers has made several major contributions to the field of dermatology. Foremost among these was the use of the BOTOX® procedure in cosmetic applications, a discovery he made with his wife, Dr. Jean Carruthers, in 1987. Since this time, they have been at the forefront of BOTOX® research, development and education, publishing numerous articles using their data. Today, BOTOX®, which inhibits nerve impulses in muscles that cause everything from frown lines and wrinkles to sweating, is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the world.

Dr. Carruthers has also made significant advances in the area of Tissue Augmentation. These materials, both temporary and permanent, are used to lift and support the structures beneath the skin. In 1998 Dr. Carruthers was the first dermatologist in North America to begin injecting Artecoll. Through the extensive research performed in their Vancouver based facility, Drs. Carruthers continue to have articles published and lecture extensively on these subjects.

With over 100 published articles to his credit, Dr. Carruthers is a member of the Editorial Board of “Dermatologic Surgery”. He is also a member of several national and international associations, including the American Dermatology Association and the Canadian Dermatology Association, where he served as President from 1998 to 1999. In addition, he has been elected Vice President of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Dr. Carruthers has also contributed extensively to studies about the relationship between skin cancer and sun exposure, leading to his appointment as the first Publ
