Combined Regenerative and Aesthetic Medicine

  • Mario Goisis

The gold standard treatment for correction of many of the aesthetic flaws caused by ageing has been described in this book in terms of the many procedures involved in regenerative treatment. However, as there is a growing interest in a wide range of nonablative interventions that claim being able to rejuvenate skin “safely and successfully” some nonablative treatments such as radio frequency, shock waves, and focused ultrasound seen as excellent complements to regenerative medicine, are also dealt with here.
