A Dermatologist's Secrets for Looking Younger Without SurgeryBook - 2003
The key to looking younger isn't always plastic surgery. There are many better, safer, and less expensive options that will remove wrinkles, revitalize skin, and make you look years younger--and they all can be performed by a dermatologist, not a plastic surgeon. Steven Victor, one of America's leading cosmetic dermatologists, reveals the secrets of these nonsurgical treatments in Ageless Beauty. From laser resurfacing to chemical peels to mesotherapy, readers will learn how a dermatologist can take the years off by removing wrinkles, age spots, and varicose veins from their faces, hands, necks, and legs. None of the procedures requires anesthesia, and in many cases, the results are even better than the traditional nip and tuck! With straightforward, accessible information and advice, Ageless Beauty is the equivalent of a costly consultation with one of the pioneers of cosmetic dermatology. It's the ultimate sourcebook for all women--and men--who want to look younger but don't want the risks, expense, and recovery time of plastic surgery. ... Now, of course, you may be wondering: Why choose these treatments over plastic surgery? Isn't plastic surgery still the way to go for truly transformative results? In most cases, the answer is a resounding no. Naturally there is an important place for plastic surgery, which, in fact, I recommend to patients as a worthy complement to certain resurfacing techniques, if I think it's merited. But no matter how old you are or how many wrinkles you have, if your skin isn't sagging, your first visit should absolutely, unequivocally be to a cosmetic dermatologist. --From Ageless Beauty
