Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This book covers the current procedures used to treat acne and rosacea and their accompanying complications. The first chapter is an up-to-date discussion on the pathophysiology of acne. The interplay of cytokines, interleukins, 5 alpha-reductase, vascular endothelial growth factor, and metalloproteinases in contributing to acne are nicely diagrammed and reviewed. The book largely focuses on laser, light treatments, radiofrequency, and nonablative modalities and presents mechanisms of action for topical and oral agents.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate dermatologists on current therapies and procedures for treatment of acne and rosacea.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists and budding dermatologists.
Features: The mechanisms of action of prescription drugs used for treating acne and rosacea are well covered in a direct manner. The rationale for how various light and laser devices are helpful in controlling acne is thoughtfully presented. Photographs illustrate different types of acne scarring, different types of rosacea, and before and after laser treatment acne photographs. General concepts are reviewed for all treatments discussed. Readers will need additional information to be well versed in the details of using any procedure or medications discussed.
Assessment: This is a nice, up-to-date overview of acne and rosacea treatments, although there could have been more chapters on rosacea treatment and it lacks any discussion of dietary supplements such as nicotinamide, copper, zinc, etc. However, this would be useful as an introductory therapeutic book.
From the Publisher
...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.
