Overview

The concept of selective photothermolysis revolutionized cutaneous therapy and continues to be the basis of low-risk laser treatment of photoaged skin, benign pigmented lesions and tattoos, unwanted hair, and cutaneous vascular lesions. However, all practitioners are aware that problems can arise, and with the increasing availability of more powerful lasers and light sources, more complications are inevitably going to be seen Complications in Laser Cutaneous Surgery provides, chapter by chapter, several key points followed by discussion of the lasers used to treat the various entities described, how to pre-empt problems and how to deal with them if they occur.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Private Practice)
Description: These are very graphic lessons in the complications that may arise as a result of performing laser surgery. The chapters discuss the complications and reasons for different laser systems. The majority of the book is color photographs.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate laser surgeons in the complications of laser. The early potential danger signs are discussed, the time course of infection, scarring, dyspigmentation, etc. occurring and how to recognize them clinically.
Audience: The audience is physicians performing or planning to perform laser procedures in their practice.
Features: Now Dr. Goldberg needs to publish the obvious sequel to this book — how to treat the complications that can arise from laser surgery. There are numerous photographs documenting different scars, and the evolution of potential adverse changes in the skin.
Assessment: This book is useful for its illustrations. The discussions on the mechanisms on why particular complications arise are educational. I would recommend you read this book first before one of the "how to do" laser introductory textbooks. It will give you a sense of respect and caution for using lasers.
