Overview

The definitive guide to adapting cosmetic procedures to skin of color

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

"This book is informative about treating patients with darker skin and I would recommend it to any dermatologist who sees these patients. The authors' presentations are unbiased and their conclusions are clear. I know I will reread many of the chapters when I see patients with skin types 4-6. 3 Stars."—Doody's Review Service

Cosmetic Dermatology for Skin of Color expertly explains how patient assessment, surgical intervention, and medical treatment (including cosmeceuticals) differ for patients with pigmented skin. Presented in full color, the book demonstrates ways to improve efficacy, reduce treatment time, and minimize adverse effects in this special patient population.

This book picks up where other books on cosmetic and laser dermatology leave off. Cosmetic Dermatology for Skin of Color is the first resource that focuses on every aspect of care, helping you optimize patient outcomes for virtually every kind of procedure.

FEATURES:

  • All the procedural and technological know-how you need to successfully treat patients with more heavily pigmented skin

    —Patient assessment

    —Patient selection

    —Device/treatment selection

    —Device use, dose/setting selection

    —Treatment regimen

    —Postoperative care

    —Management of adverse events

  • Full coverage of all procedures for ethnic skin types, including microdermabrasion and superficial peels, dermal rejuvenation, nonablative laser and intensed pulsed light, and liposuction
  • Important reviews of hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, the development of hypertrophic scars, and other issues specific to skin of color
  • A separate chapter on cosmeceuticals, which highlights their benefits in day-to-day clinical practice

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This book specifically addresses hyperpigmentation issues, scarring, and specific reactivity patterns and precautions to consider when performing laser, peels, surgery, etc., on patients with darker skin types. An excellent chapter by Zoe Draelos discusses using bleaching agents for melasma.
Purpose: The purpose is to enhance the knowledge of dermatologists treating patients with darker skin types. After reading this book, you should be more comfortable in making appropriate skin recommendations for these patients to minimize post-procedure hyperpigmentation problems and treating hyperpigmentation, scarring, and melasma.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists.
Features: Unlike many books on cosmetic dermatology, this one actually discusses parameters used in treating patients and names specific products that are used in skin care regimens. There are helpful suggestions and tips on what to expect when treating darker skin types and how to minimize unwanted hyperpigmentation and irritation, which can lead to the former. The numerous color photographs are of excellent quality. Photos illustrate how the skin looks before and immediately after the procedure. The chapters are easy to understand and well written. There is some redundancy in the repetition of laser physics at the beginning of all the chapters discussing laser treatment.
Assessment: This book is informative about treating patients with darker skin and I would recommend it to any dermatologist who sees these patients. The authors' presentations are unbiased and their conclusions are clear. I know I will reread many of the chapters when I see patients with skin types 4-6.
