Acne, rosacea, and sebaceous hyperplasia are very common skin problems, which have a significant medical, cosmetic, and often psychological impact on the daily lives of millions of people. This book covers both the medical and cosmetic aspects of these skin disorders including all clinical considerations, etiology, epidemiology, diagnostic challenges, and the latest theories on pathophysiology.
Several chapters address the most current medical therapeutics and laser treatments available for each of the conditions. In the case of acne, an entire chapter is dedicated to the treatment of acne scarring.
The book is illustrated with over 70 color photographs. It is invaluable to physicians in practice and training, including dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and general physicians, and to any healthcare personnel involved in the administration of laser and light-based therapies for acne and rosacea.
…a balanced delineation of classical standard therapies and physical treatment options… profound clinical expertise in laser/light treatments… condensed enough to serve also non-dermatologists to gain a quick overview of current knowledge in this field… presents the relevant topical and systemic acne treatments in a comprehensive way and includes also detailed descriptions of side effects and applicability during pregnancy… In conclusion, this clearly structured book is useful for dermatologists in practice and training as well as for plastic surgeons, general physicians, and all health care personnel applying laser/light treatments for acne and rosacea. The size of the book is easy-to-handle and allows acquiring a broad insight in pathophysiology of both diseases and a balanced overview of medical and cosmetic therapies with a reasonable expenditure of time and money.
