Botulinum Toxins in Clinical Aesthetic Practice. Edition No. 2. Series in Cosmetic and Laser Therapy
Informa Healthcare, January 2011, Pages: 296
This high-quality, well illustrated manual has proved itself the perfect guide to the clinical use of the different types of botulinum toxins, for both esthetic and medical purposes. This second edition retains all the features that made its predecessor so successful, such as detailed anatomic drawings, a review of the different formulations available, and specimen forms. It has been revised and updated throughout and features additional new material on medico-legal considerations and psychological and cultural factors that may affect the intentions of patients and the results that can be achieved.
