Summary

Botox, or Botulinum toxin, has become a household word, not so much for its use as an exciting drug in almost every field of medicine, but as a deadly poison that has been somehow transformed into a softener of facial expression lines. When done correctly, the treatment can be safe, effective, and in comparison to other modalities, involves relatively little down time. The need has never been greater for an authoritative, up-to-date resource on using botulinum toxins to safely treat expression lines.

Written by pioneers in the cosmetic applications of botulinum toxins, Using Botulinum Toxins Cosmetically: A Practical Guide is an easy-to-read, step-by-step guide to the practical clinical aspects of the treatments. The authors' combined backgrounds in plastic surgery, dermatology, and ophthalmology make them uniquely qualified to discuss all the possibilities offered and problems raised by this important cosmetic modality. Illustrations in the book and on the accompanying CD-ROM make the procedures crystal clear. The CD-ROM also includes over forty minutes of filmed procedures with commentary. Even the most experienced injector will learn tips and tricks from this work.
