Overview

This is a multi-authored textbook that is simple, practical, and up-to-date and supported by instructional videos for cosmetic procedures that can be performed in an office setting. The focus of the book is on fillers, neurotoxins, and various laser, broad band light, radio-frequency, and ultrasound devices that are currently being used or about to be released. It also covers suture suspension lifts, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. There are supporting chapters on various local, topical, nerve-blocking, and sedation anesthetic techniques that are typically used in an office setting. The book's format and contents are a bold departure from many textbooks. In addition to chapters discussing the theory behind the products and chapters reviewing categories of products or devices that provide the reader with an overview and some comparative discussion, there are short sections for each individual popular branded type of product. The book is useful for both experienced practitioners interested in the latest trends around the world and those who are starting out or are simply interested in adding new procedures to a practice that already includes certain cosmetic procedures.
