With the newer ablative and non-ablative techniques offering precise methods for improving photo-aged skin, facial skin rejuvenation is particularly popular. Ablative and Non-Ablative Facial Skin Rejuvenation discusses the various lasers, light sources, and radio-frequency devices currently used. Each chapter analyzes one of the available technologies and discusses the author's approach to using that system. The closing chapters address complications-what to do if they arise and how to anticipate and manage them. The final chapter focuses on the marketing and business aspects of a facial rejuvenation practice. This one-stop reference on the topic is ideal for dermatologists and all professionals in the field.
"If you are searching for a book that provides an overview of the various modalities available for laser and nonablative skin rejuvenation, you may find this reference useful. Each chapter focuses on a different surgical resurfacing treatment: CO2 laser resurfacing, erbium: YAG laser resurfacing, electrosurgical skin resurfacing, and nonablative skin remodeling. …There are many photographs showing the patients' skin response over time, from immediately after treatment one year postoperative…the book does a good job of discussing and summarizing studies about the different lasers and providing a comparison when the data is present."
