When Dr Burgess considered putting this book together, she wondered how it would differ from existing cosmetic dermatology textbooks. She found her answer: it would focus on updating clinicians regarding the latest product approvals from the Food and Drug Administration, thus providing cutting-edge information not available in older texts.
This ambitious volume covers the whole field of cosmetic dermatology, including laser skin resurfacing, use of botulinum toxin, soft tissue augmentation, treatment of leg veins, chemical peels, management of pigmentary changes, food supplements for healthy skin, “cosmeceuticals,” and principles of antiaging. All this, in a compact 170-page format.
