The aim of this book is to focus on the cosmetic injectables in practice-dermal fillers and botulinum toxin. Dermal fillers are substances injected into the face to fill lines and add volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections relax the facial muscles to smooth out line and wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Beginning with an overview of the history and basic science of cosmetic injectables, the book is then divided into two key sections. Section one examines fillers, discussing facial anatomy, patient selection, anaesthesia, and injection techniques for different areas of the face. Treatment plans, patient consent, and before and after instructions, are also discussed. The second section covers Botox and its use for treating different types of facial lines, and includes chapters on complications and their management, and Botox in men. The extensive text is enhanced by nearly 300 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables. This book fulfills the need of a handy reference tool for injecting different areas of the face.
