Dermal fillers are the fastest growing tools in the cosmetic physician's armamentarium for refreshing the appearance of patients. This book demonstrates effective, best-practice use for superb patient results. Augmented by a DVD of procedural videos, it shows you how to match patient, treatment, and filler for maximum results.
Taking a patient-centered approach, Dr. Jones reviews the advantages and disadvantages of each filler according to anatomical application. Opening chapters cover the cosmetic patient consultation and guidelines for local anaesthesia in the use of injectable fillers, followed by individual chapters on:
Calcium Hydroxylapatite Microspheres
Evolence and Evolence Breeze

An extensive chapter on complications from soft-tissue augmentation of the face explains how to avoid and manage peri-procedural issues. Closing chapters supply a cheek enhancement guide for the aesthetic injector and a review of the clinical applications of hyaluronic acids, which are currently the most commonly used fillers.
With careful coverage of basic science, safety and efficacy data that have led to FDA approval, safe and effective injection techniques, and appropriate indications for each filler, this concise volume provides a dependable source of important information for dermatologists, aesthetic medicine practitioners, plastic surgeons, and all practitioners who work with injectable fillers.

What People are Saying About This
"Boeckx has a deep familiarity with all of the (very wide-ranging) material he presents, and has done original and important work in several of these areas. He is a lucid and engaging expositor, and is highly qualified in every respect to undertake an enterprise of this nature … [He] brings together the right topics, some right at the edge or even at the horizons of research. If I were teaching undergraduate or graduate courses in these areas, I cannot think of a competing text that I would prefer."
"No one had integrated, yet, the key four notions "language", "cognition", "mental" and "structures" in such a masterly and original way. A wealth of discoveries awaits both the novice reader and the expert. Cedric's art of revealing deep connections between fields, authors and ideas has frequently prompted me, while reading this book, to wonder why I had not seen those connections before."
–Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini, University of Arizona
“If Linguistics is the queen of the cognitive sciences, then Cedric Boeckx is her official court biographer. In one short book, he clearly outlines how the developments in linguistics have upended earlier empiricist conceptions of mind and spurred exciting investigations of human evolution.”
–Norbert Hornstein, University of Maryland
“Language in Cognition is not so much a book with facts and concepts, as a long argument and discussion with the reader. It is an argument that every serious student of the mind sciences should know, even if they don't join the choir. Boeckx masterfully presents the material, showing why biology must form a core part of the mind sciences, and how the mind sciences, and especially language, can pose new challenges for biology.”
–Marc Hauser, Harvard College, Author of Moral Minds
“Cedric Boeckx provides a wonderful, modern review of the necessity of mentalism, of innate structure for all of the mind, and the role of mathematics in articulating different principles of representation for different modules of mind---a summary of the Chomskyan revolution over the last half century. He brings perspective to the project by connecting the history of philosophy with modern experimentation showing that the “generative” approach to both language and mind has received stunning support in acquisition, processing, and aphasia. At the same time, he acknowledges many mysteries: we do not know what our “gut feelings” contain, though they are central to humanity and dignity. They may also contain amalgams combined from different modules in ways we do not understand, but which also may ultimately submit to mathematical representation. The book situates grammar in the broader sciences in a manner accessible to the generally educated student or curious layman. It is a superb introduction to the fundamental role of generative thought in modern cognitive science, weaving together psychological, biological, and philosophical perspectives.”
