Publisher Comments:

A guide to the top ten minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, from Botox to lasers to peels, which can help you look younger quickly and safely

No one likes to hear this, but we have only .01 second to make a first impression. But what's the best way to look good? Makeup, hairstyles, and clothing--not to mention a friendly smile--can of course make a big difference, but for the thousands of Americans who would like an extra edge, nonsurgical cosmetic procedures are the answer.

But which procedures really work? How safe are they? And are they worth the time and money? From Botox to microdermabrasion to lasers to chemical peels, there are so many choices that it can be hard to tell what's hype and what's helpful. In Instant Beauty, prominent Chicago cosmetic surgeon Steven Dayan, M.D., gives readers an easy-to-use no-nonsense guide to the top ten nonsurgical procedures, grading each for safety, effectiveness, and value. He explains the claims and the realities for each treatment, and lets you know exactly what to expect so that you can make the decision about what treatments are right for you.

In addition, Dr. Dayan gives sound advice on the best treatments for every age and every condition, and teaches readers what to look for in a cosmetic physician. He also briefly describes common surgical procedures, and clearly indicates who should and should not get each treatment.

Instant Beauty is a straightforward and comprehensive guide for anyone interested in taking advantage of the remarkable breakthroughs in medical technology to look and feel better and younger--at any age!
