Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin that is typically performed on the face, neck or hands. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to "blister" and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery). This second edition is a step by step guide to chemical peels. Beginning with an introduction to the procedure, an overview of the different types of peels and advice on getting started, each of the following chapters provides more in depth information on different peels and their appropriate use with different types of skin. The final chapters discuss complications, case studies and offer ‘ten golden rules for perfect peeling’. The new edition has been fully revised to provide the most recent advances in chemical peeling and three new chapters have been added covering acne and acne scars, facial melanoses, and periocular peels. This comprehensive atlas includes more than 170 clinical images and tables, as well as a DVD demonstrating procedures.

Woraus besteht die Welt, woraus Mikroben, Meere, der Mensch? Kean gelingt etwas Schönes: Man kapiert’s auch ohne dröge Formeln. Das Hauptgebäude der modernen Chemie, das Periodensystem der Elemente, sieht langweilig aus, doch in ihm verbergen sich spannende Geschichten über Alchimisten, Entdecker und Goldgräber, Medizinalräte und Quacksalber, Kriegsstrategen, Spione, Geschäftemacher und Spinner. So macht Naturwissenschaft Spaß! Das periodische System der Elemente ist nicht nur eine große wissenschaftliche Leistung, sondern auch eine Schatzkiste voller skurriler Episoden, die von Leidenschaft, Abenteuern, Betrug und Besessenheit handeln. Während Kean die Grundbausteine des Universums und die Ordnung, die sie schaffen, erklärt, erzählt er zugleich, welche Rolle sie vom Urknall bis heute gespielt haben. Wie etwa Gerhard Domagk das Leben seiner Tochter riskierte, um die ersten Antibiotika zu entwickeln. Wie Portugal sowohl den Nazis als auch den Alliierten zu astronomischen Preisen Wolfram lieferte, weil beide Seiten es dringend für den Krieg brauchten.

Erstmals wird in diesem Buch ein neues, minimal-invasives Behandlungsverfahren beschrieben, das bei osteoporotischen, traumatischen oder tumorösen Veränderungen der Wirbelsäule indiziert ist. Die Technik wird in einfachen Schritten erklärt, um einen breiten, interdisziplinären Interessentenkreis zu erreichen. Da der Schwerpunkt der Technik die Osteoporose betrifft, ist auch ein spezielles Kapitel der unbedingt notwendigen Begleitmedikation gewidmet. Die neue Operationstechnik wird auch mit Alternativen zur Kyphoplastie verglichen. Ferner wird ein neuartiges Nachbehandlungskonzept speziell für die dargestellte Technik eingeführt und erklärt. Abschließend werden Listen über Referenzzentren und Abrechnungsziffern für die Krankenkassen für die deutschsprachigen Länder angeführt. Die Autoren sind seit Jahren Instruktoren für die beschriebene Operationstechnik und haben in den letzten Jahren diese neuen Methoden an verschiedenen Krankenhäusern und Universitäten in Europa gelehrt und durchgeführt.
