Aesthetic medicine is an extremely rapidly developing field. New treatments are invented each year and existing treatments are constantly evolving and being improved. To practice in aesthetic or cosmetic medicine at the best level, it is not sufficient simply to rely on techniques learnt ten or even five years ago. It is perhaps more important in this discipline, which is so practical, than in most other disciplines, to be familiar with current treatment techniques.
Beautifully illustrated and highly practical, Alessio Redaelli‘s and Fredéric Braccini’s latest and fully revised edition of their highly acclaimed “Facial aging: manual of aesthetic medicine“ is a wonderfully clear and readable book which has now been redesigned specifically for today‘s aesthetic physician. All the chapters in this edition are concerned with techniques that are directly relevant to the practice of aesthetic medicine by aesthetic physicians. Botulinum, fillers and lasers – all these and many more treatments are here clearly presented by hand-picked experts in this authoritative and comprehensive textbook. Important chapters cover complications and their treatment and prevention, including a particularly clear account of the management of ischemic complications of fillers.
For today’s aesthetic physician, this book is probably indispensable.
