Overview

Common Drugs and Side Effects: A Handbook for the Aesthetician, part of Milady's Aesthetician Series, is designed to provide the aesthetician with information on drugs, their purpose, drug interactions, and potential effects and side effects. This unique resource highlights drugs that will impact the skin, and as such, the ability to treat the skin with traditional topical or clinical treatments familiar in the spa or medical spa. The text is organized to include coverage of topics such as common drugs for women; drugs used in the aging process; drugs used for autoimmune diseases; drugs for bacterial infections, viral infections, and fungal infections; drugs that affect the skin; drugs used for skin therapies; illegal drugs; and over-the-counter drugs. Special features of this text include charts and illustrations for visual learning and a dictionary of drugs, their purpose and possible reactions. This invaluable handbook, written in a user-friendly, non-intimidating style provides the aesthetician with advanced, updated, and need-to-know information on drugs that may impact the skin and cause conditions that require treatment.
