Brandt, a New York and Miami dermatologist, and Reynoso, senior beauty editor at W magazine, offer a guidebook to the latest in cosmetic procedures. The authors first recommend a simple, commonsense home regimen to help keep faces looking and feeling good: a healthy diet, well-cleansed skin, sufficient sleep and not too much exposure to the sun. The authors then discuss various skin problems along with treatments available. Although Brandt features the sometimes controversial Botox method, he also covers the many alternatives that may be helpful (chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser surgery) as well as over-the-counter products (moisturizers and creams). Brandt helps demystify the many quick and painless solutions to wrinkles, crow's feet and other age-related problems and helps readers assess how much money to spend and which products and treatments are worth it. When considering any medical treatment, the authors stress finding a competent, experienced professional to increase chances for success.
