The current trend in medical care in the 21st century is evolving into a minimally invasive specialty. The interest of Interventional Radiology (IR) in cosmetic is increasing particularly for outsetting patients, in the treatment of soft tissue vascular malformations, us-guided injections of Botox ® and varicous veins management. Advantages of cosmetic IR treatments are many: treatments takes less than an hour and provides immediate relief of symptoms; no scaring, because the procedure does not require a surgical incision; an immediate return to normal activity with little or no pain; and high success rate and low recurrence rate compared to surgery. © 2008 Surgical Associates Ltd.
