Do you want younger looking skin without resorting to the knife? Baffled by botox and the hype surrounding collagen and laser-peels? Should you be paying that much for skin cream? This book offers a consumer guide for all those interested in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, and in particular for the growing number of men and women considering a course of botox injections. Dermatologists have made incredible advances since the 1980s in learning what damages and prematurely ages the skin, and in realising how this damage can be prevented and even repaired. Little was known about the ageing role of sun exposure, smoking, pollution, deficient nutrition and even stress. We believed that lines and wrinkles were an unavoidable rite of passage and that a mediocre complexion could never be more than that. Times have changed. Plastic surgery remains an option for some people, but increasingly popular are superior at-home skin care and dermatological procedures like acid peels, filler injections, non-burning lasers and botox.
Written by one of America's leading authorities in this area, this book aims to guide the reader through the vast amount of information, technological advances and available procedures, to help them to become a more informed consumer and therefore make the right choices.
