Beth is a US aesthetic practitioner who has produced this book aimed at nurse practitioners. A useful resource that offers guidance to nurses who are experienced or novice aesthetic practitioners who would like to improve their aesthetic practice and enhance patient safety and satisfaction.
The book is broken up into chapters that review skin structure and anatomy, what happens as facial structures age, the effects of aging coupled with environmental exposures, pharmacology of medications used in aesthetics, light-based device properties, patient selection, and benefits of treatments.
In addition, it includes suggestions on how to communicate with patients to achieve successful outcomes. Aesthetic Procedures: Nurse Practitioner's Guide to Cosmetic Dermatology provides practitioners a one-source resource to attain more in-depth learning about cosmetic dermatology. Although there are several texts on individual aspects of
aesthetic medicine, there is no all-inclusive book for nurses.
