Review Quotes
From the reviews:"This is an excellent resource for learning how to inject Botox. Even if you are a seasoned injector, I am sure you will discover tips to improve your technique. … The audience includes any physicians who use Botox in their practice. The book specifically focuses on cosmetic use of Botox, so plastic surgeons and dermatologists would be the majority of physicians interested in reading it. … I highly recommend it. This is definitely one of the better written books on the subject." (Patricia Wong, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
