Even those clinicians who feel themselves far from aesthetic dermatology now recognise that BoNT-A is an extraordinary tool in their therapeutic armamentarium for treating complex disorders such as focal idiopathic hyperhidrosis. This has opened a therapeutic scenario for a group of patients very difficult to treat previously. Since the introduction of BoNT-A in the dermatological therapeutic armamentarium, in 1990, things have changed to the point that any dermatologist should now have knowledge of BoNT-A basics, and the practicalities of BoNT-A vial reconstitution and injection. Moreover, in the last years, a widespread availability of multiple different commercially available forms of BoNT-A has been for sale, thus the clinicians must now really know and consider the advantages and disadvantages of the different available products. These would include dosing/duration, immunogenicity, and spread of effect. What has not changed over the years is the safety profile of BoNT-A. The knowledge regarding its side effects and complications have greatly increased, confirming that, despite the attempts of some individuals to assert otherwise, BoNT-A remains one of the safest forms of treatment available to us as physicians. This edited collection provides a comprehensive practical guide on the use of botulinum toxin in several dermatological disorders, including focal idiopathic, axillary, palmar and plantar, craniofacial or segmental hyperhidrosis, chrono-aging, hidradenitis, and gives some suggestion on the use of BoNT-A for the treatment of several orphan skin diseases, not responding to conventional treatments like benign Hailey-Hiley disease, lichen simplex, osmidrosis. Using clear explanations, simple line drawings, diagrams and clinical pictures, it provides suggestions to improve practical knowledge on the use of BTX-A in dermatology. Hot topics include practical information for clinicians regarding the correct counselling of the patients to be treated; methods and ready to use tests to select patients to be treated; the optimal dosage and dilution according to the site of injection and the indication of use; the relevant injection sites for each condition; the correct technique of injection in the different areas of body surface; comparative dosage tables for the various formulations of toxin used; how to manage and prevent side effects related to the use of BoNT-A; common pitfalls and how to optimize outcomes; timing for the follow-up of treated patients. The authors hope that this book may be a starting point for the use of a drug that is still growing, and a useful tool for those clinicians who want to improve their knowledge about the use of BoNT-A in dermatology.

Botulinum toxins now play a very significant role in the management of a wide variety of medical conditions; from headaches to hypersalivation, and from spasticity to sweating. In this book, a strong, international team of experts outline the basic neurochemistry of botulinum toxins and chart the progress of the drug from laboratory to clinic. Then individual chapters summarize their use for the main clinical indications in the context of other available treatments. This book will be of interest to neuroscientists and practising clinicians working in a wide range of specialities, from neurology and dermatology to pediatrics, plastic surgery and rehabilitation medicine.
Very few therapeutic agents in clinical medicine have found indication for so many clinical conditions, and in such a short time as did botulinum neurotoxins (Botox and others). Chronic migraine, bladder dysfunction , dystonia, hemifacial spasm , blepharospasm , drooling, excessive sweating and spasticity are all approved by FDA and many other indications are in the near horizon . The aesthetic/cosmetic use of Botox and other BoNTs already has a huge market worldwide. Stroke, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral palsy as well as brain and spinal injury are among clinical conditions in which some of patients’ major symptoms can respond to botulinum toxin therapy Several books have been written on the subject of Botox and other neurotoxins for treatment of medical disorders ( including two books by Jabbari both published by Springer 2015 & 2017). However, despite the huge interest and enthusiasm of the public to learn more about Botox and other toxins, there is currently no book in the market on this subject which is specifically designed to inform and educate the public on botulinum toxin therapy. Botulinum Toxin Treatment explains and discusses in simple language the structure and function of botulinum toxin and other neurotoxins as well as the rational for its utility in different disease conditions. Safety, factors affecting efficacy and duration of action, as well as cost and insurance issues are also addressed.
Provides practical guidance on the use of botulinum toxin in a wide variety of disorders, in many areas of medicine. Using clear line drawings, it describes the relevant injection sites for each condition and gives comparative dosage tables for the various formulations of toxin used in different muscle groups.
