Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This book presents practical information on the different types of laser available for cosmetic procedures and the pros and cons of using each type of laser. Each chapter is devoted to a different cosmetic topic such as wrinkles, scar revision, hair transplantation, etc., and is written by a recognized expert in the field of laser surgery.
Purpose: The book seeks to cover the general principles of laser physics and its application in dermatology. This discussion is easier to understand than other laser texts available and allows the reader to select the appropriate laser for treating a particular skin type.
Audience: This is a good introductory base for dermatologists who are planning to offer cosmetic laser services or those who desire a quick update on lasers.
Features: There are many tables comparing the wavelengths, spot sizes, etc., of the various lasers on the market used to treat the same condition. This makes it easy to see the differences in the lasers and gives the reader a good idea of appropriate treatment parameters with which to initiate treatment.
Assessment: As with most books on lasers, there is a paucity of information on the actual laser techniques. This always makes me wonder why the authors do not wish to share this information since this is what anyone would wish to know who is interested in starting a laser practice. There are a few comments regarding laser overlapping and holding the laser tip at an acute angle to remove necrotic mounds but otherwise the reader is left to his or her own devices in this realm. This is not a standalone authoritative text on the subject. It offers a good overview to the subject but the reader will need to consult more in-depth sources to acquire a thorough understanding of techniques and skin care involved before proceeding with laser procedures.
