A new title in the "Aesthetic Methods for Skin Rejuvenation Series". Written by a team of international authors who first described the method of percutaneous collagen induction, this book provides a vivid, practically oriented and holistic medium for communicating knowledge about a highly efficient and previously little-known treatment approach for skin regeneration. Using impressive case histories, 300 outstanding didactic photos and anatomical graphics and convincing scientific data, the authors who describe Percutaneous Collagen Induction, better known as "Needling", confirm the method's efficacy in the rejuvenating treatment of skin conditions such as scars, lines, sagging skin and stretch marks. As an attractively illustrated and clearly structured step-by-step guide, it takes the reader through the basics of the method's mechanism of action, perioperative organization and indication-related uses.
