Essentials of Medical Aesthetics
The book describes the biology of skin aging (including causes of aging like UV radiation and photoaging) and methods for the improvement of premature skin aging (skin
care procedures such as laser rejuvenation, medical chemical peels, and the use of antiaging products). Chemical peels—their types, the grades and different acids used, and their protocols—are discussed broadly to guide how to perform an effective peel. In addition, microdermabrasion and photo-laser and laser hair reduction are thoroughly discussed in this book.
Readers can find complete information on different types of lasers and laser physics. The most appealing areas of medical aesthetics are facial and body countering by derma fillers and Botox injection. This book gives you substantial information about Botox and dermal fillers and the techniques used to perform satisfactory corrective injections. The anatomy and physiology of muscles involved in facial expression are discussed to make you familiar and confident when injecting your clients. For instance, treatment of eyes and forehead wrinkles, frown lines, nasolabial laugh lines, and bunny lines are covered.
The most popular facial and body-countering techniques, such as nonsurgical nose jobs; cheek, chin, and lip enhancements; and nonsurgical breast augmentation and lipolysis by mesotherapy, are presented in this book. The book contains other subjects such as patient consultation and assessment, laser safety, microbiology and medical infection control for medical aesthetics, and other subjects that make this textbook a reference guide in medical aesthetics for doctors, nurses, and aestheticians.
