Lasers in dermatology (4th Edition)
This new edition is the result of the sharing, by several reference authors and members of the Laser Group, of their secondary research and their many years of experience.
From the fundamentals to safety, the specialists present the therapeutic, medical and aesthetic indications of lasers and related technologies, as well as at-home skin care devices. The variety and complexity of uses and indications for the same device are detailed in the different chapters, and supplemented by a large amount of practical and scientific information.
This book will provide readers with the knowledge required to make appropriate decisions, perform the right procedures in all safety and understand the challenges of a technology that has continued to grow in recent years.
