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.

    --Management of adverse events
