Overview

  • The first all-inclusive text on the pitfalls, complications and controversies surrounding the use of lasers in dermatology and aesthetic medicine
  • Each chapter starts off by highlighting the key points and essential concepts, followed by a review of the associated pearls and problems
  • Provides the reader with tips on how to improve the safe and effective use of lasers
  • Images focus on the pearls and problems

Laser Dermatology: Pearls and Problems is different from other laser dermatology books. Each of the five chapters begins by highlighting key points and essential concepts, then focuses on the pearls and problems for each area – based on the author’s vast experience in the field of laser dermatology. Dr. Goldberg addresses:

  • Vascular Lasers
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Pigmented Lesions, Tattoos, and Disorders of Hypopigmentation
  • Ablative Lasers and Devices
  • Non-Ablative Photorejuvenation and Skin Remodeling

Dr. Goldberg goes beyond the standard “before and after” approach to use actual images to demonstrate the pearls and pitfalls discussed in the text.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is on my ‘must buy’ list … .You’ll want to read it from beginning to end. It reveals what most laser books won’t tell you.“ Doody's Book Reviews
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: The size of this book is deceiving. It one of the best laser books I have read in terms of discussing practical, clinical concepts. It is well written and the author does not beat about the bush and leave readers wondering if a particular device is better than another. The pathophysiology is presented in a straightforward manner and is easy to understand. Laser physics is explained very clearly, much better than in the multitude of laser books currently available.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate dermatologists on which laser and light devices to use for which particular skin type and problem. The author does not overwhelm readers with study data, but there is an extensive bibliography.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists using lasers, radiofrequency devices, intense pulsed light, etc., in their practices.
Features: This excellent book discusses the practicality of using lasers and the potential problems that may arise, why they can occur, and how to make proper choices in one's practice. At the beginning of each chapter is a table highlighting the salient take-home messages. The pros and cons of the devices and the different modalities one can use for various skin disorders such as hyperpigmented lesions or unwanted hair are covered in a clear and efficient manner. This book was a pleasure to read and I recommend it to anyone who uses lasers or is thinking about using lasers.
Assessment: This is on my "must buy" list of laser books. Once you start reading it, you'll want to read it from beginning to end. It reveals what most laser books won't tell you. Why find out the hard way? Buy this book.
