Published Reviews

    "The strength of the book is its completeness and clarity in the descriptions and rationales for injection placement for facial and neck rejuvenation and hyperhidrosis. Videos demonstrating the techniques of injection can be accessed using a code provided with the purchase of the book.

    This is an excellent resource for both novices and experts in botulinum toxin usage. It is the only book that I have seen in which every chapter addresses the differences in doses and particular characteristics among the different botulinum toxin preparations." - Patricia Wong, MD(Stanford University Medical Center) Doody 4 stars
