Manual of Cutaneous Laser Techniques
Now in its thoroughly revised, updated Second Edition, this manual is a practical "how-to" guide to the latest techniques in cutaneous laser surgery. It provides step-by-step instructions on setting up a laser practice, evaluating patients preoperatively, treating specific skin problems, preventing and managing complications, and postoperative skin care and maintenance. Complementing the text are 116 full-color photographs, all of them new to this edition. New chapters in this edition cover laser-assisted hair removal and Erbium YAG laser resurfacing. All other chapters have been revised to reflect state-of-the-art innovations and equipment. Appendices provide up-to-date directories of laser manufacturers and treatment-related products.
