The use of laser light to treat dermatological conditions is becoming increasingly common as laser technology has become more effective in its ability to target specific dermatological areas.

This book is a practical guide to the use of laser light to treat skin disorders. Beginning with an overview of the fundamentals of lasers, the following sections examine different procedures including laser hair removal, tattoo removal, acne scars, vascular lesions, non-invasive fat removal and tissue tightening. Each chapter provides an introduction to the topic, discussion on new techniques and clinical pearls.

Written by an extensive author and editor team from throughout the USA, this book is highly useful for both trainees and practising dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.
