Cosmetic Dermatology: Products and Procedures
incorporates important contributions from the bench researcher, the manufacturer, the cosmetic chemist, the dermatologic surgeon, and the clinical dermatologist to define the knowledge base of cosmetic dermatology. Organizing by product, and adopting the daily routine of the patient as the underlying principle, Zoe Draelos and her international roster of authors present a compelling overview of contemporary cosmetic practice.
No practitioner in the field can fully help their patients without a proper understanding of the skin's physiology and how this affects the delivery of cosmetic products. Through explaining these principles, the Basic Concepts section provides essential background for sections on Hygiene Products, Adornment, and Antiaging.
These sections perceptively map the patient's daily cosmetic routine. Focused analysis covers the product spectrum of:
- Cleansers, moisturizers and personal care products
- Colored facial products, nail and hair cosmetics
- Injectable antiaging techniques
- Resurfacing techniques
- Skin modulation techniques
The application of cosmetic products and procedures as part of a treatment regimen for conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema completes the picture.
Fully referenced throughout, with basic concepts highlighted for ease of use, Cosmetic Dermatology: Products and Procedures supplies a comprehensive and current overview for both experienced practitioners and trainees.
