“Cosmetic dermatology is such a fast moving field—the fastest-moving field in all of dermatology—so updates are crucial.” – Dr. Jeffrey Dover

Hot Topics in the Field of Cosmetic Dermatology

One of the big new areas in the field is how we’re using existing fillers.  Fillers have been around for a couple of years, but the techniques have completely changed.  Unless someone has the chance to travel to meetings all over the world, they’re never really going to be able to keep up with the new and evolving techniques—that’s what makes these new editions so special.  We include detailed descriptions and videos by experts that show exactly how the techniques are done, how the fillers are mixed, and where they’re placed. It’s a great learning experience.

New in This Edition of the Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology Series

Whenever a book gets updated it’s important to make it way better than the previous edition and that’s exactly what we’re doing. This edition has more photographs and more and higher-quality videos that show techniques performed by true experts.  We’ve also added small vignettes to highlight exactly what’s new and how the experts address each of those areas. The new books have more detailed case studies in which the expert editors describe how individual patients are affected by the conditions that we show. The cases are described in detail with questions and answers so the reader gets a feel for what’s happening in clinical practice, making it more practical and not so academic.

We’ve hand-picked some of the best dermatologic surgeons in the world to work with on this series.  The editors are true experts—people who do this on a daily basis in their practice, who don’t just write about it or teach about it.  They’re the ones who have written each of these chapters and produced these videos specifically for this series. It’s all brand new material.  There’s nothing like it anywhere else.

About the Specific Volumes of the Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology Series

We’re combining two volumes of Lasers and Lights into one so we’ll have a comprehensive volume with everything you need to know.  Plus, we’re highlighting the most important and exciting advances in the area of lasers and lights in that one volume.

Another one of the exciting new volumes is the update on botulinum toxins. We now have several of these toxins, and Alastair and Jean Carruthers, who are world experts in this, are heading up our effort to edit the third edition of Botulinum Toxin.

The reason we’re working on a new edition of Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology is that cosmetic dermatology is such a fast moving field—the fastest moving field in all of dermatology, so updates are crucial. That’s why this new edition is so exciting.
