Injections are minimally invasive and therefore particularly popular with both plastic surgeons and dermatologists - as well as any other practitioners dedicated to the aesthetic field - with faster procedures and faster recovery time.
This comprehensive textbook, from a team of experts, documents the most popular injection treatments - botulinum toxins, fillers, and volumetric implants - and shows how they may also be combined for the best results.
The number of color illustrations throughout and the international experience of the huge community of contributing authors mean that this will be an ideal reference for anyone from student to practitioner needing to know the relevant scientific and practical details of the treatments.
