Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: A good broad overview and summary of recent cosmetic procedures is presented in this book. The detail on administering different treatments varies. The chapter on fillers discusses the different types in a general way, but readers will not have a strong feeling about how the clinical indications are used for patient selection. The chapter on sclerotherapy uses diagrams to show the technique for injections and discusses the rationale. Many tables compare chemical agents and their side-effects.
Purpose: The purpose is to be a quick reference for physicians performing cosmetic procedures. Patient selection, potential complications, and a comparison of cosmetic choices for a particular correction are included.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists and anyone else interested in providing these cosmetic services.
Features: I would have liked to have seen a discussion on what the FDA regulations are for considering a device a medical device and why, for example, microdermabrasion is not required to "establish performance standards." A legal definition of what is a cosmetic versus a drug and the specific regulations governing the manufacturing and marketing of such products would be very interesting (beyond the usual definition of a cosmetic enhancing one's appearance or beauty but not making any biological modifying claims). It seems the line is very blurry. The discussion on chemical peels is quite complete. I would have liked to see the authors speculate about why some patients who do not respond to Botox do not seem to have any reason to develop antibodies after receiving small amounts only a few
Assessment: Overall, this is a nice reference for dermatologists performing cosmetic procedures who seek a concise summary on the latest, greatest developments. The tables are very helpful and the chapters are well organized.
From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"On 170 pages basic theoretical and practical aspects of skin aging are discussed. … The tables are of high quality and well chosen. A wide-ranging list of up-to-date references is provided. … The book has a clear structure, a well-organized layout with ‘core messages’ and a list of contents at the start of each chapter. Overall this volume is highly recommended for those who want to become specialized in the field of medical cosmetics and aesthetic reconstructive dermatology." (Christiane Bayerl, Archives of Dermatological Research, Vol. 298, 2006)

"This is an ambitious little book. It attempts to cover a broad variety of topics in the field of cosmetic dermatology. … the target audience of this small book is probably those with little or no experience in cosmetic dermatology. … the book is nicely presented. It is well organized into numerous small sections and is well referenced. … a resident or medical student interested in this field would benefit from reading it." (William P. Coleman III, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Vol. 32, 2006)
