    Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice

    I read Cosmetic Dermatology last week,and find it quite interesting.It's different from the other books written on this subject. All the information in this book is new for the dermatologists as most of us has got less exposure in the subject of cosmetic dermatology. I recommend this book to all Dermatologists,Cosmatologist and those related to the field of Cosmetics. I will congratulate the author on writing such an informative book which is useful for all of us!
