The second edition of Botulinum Toxin in Facial Rejuvenation has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest advances in the field. Dr. Kate Coleman offers practical guidance on the use of botulinum toxin for cosmetic purposes, covering safe handling, patient selection and assessment, potential complications, and aesthetic techniques. This resource is ideal for cosmetic and oculoplastic surgeons, dermatologists, physician assistants, and registered nurses.
New coverage includes observations on how treatments should be adjusted as patients age to respond to natural changes, and new knowledge on neuromodulation to ‘retrain’ expressions for better facial symmetry. Comparative information on other modalities such as laser and hyaluronic acid is provided, along with potential risk factors to help clinicians choose the best procedure for each patient.
The book also discusses the different forms of botulinum toxin currently available on the market, with an emphasis on Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. Clinical photos illustrate nuances of techniques and the effectiveness of botulinum toxin on wrinkles and scars for the major facial areas.
Guidelines on treatment methods and best practices for reconstitution and storage are provided, as well as information on which patients may be at risk for adverse effects and suitable alternatives. An enhanced eBook version is included with purchase, allowing access to all text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
