Editorial Reviews

From the reviews: "An overview of the potential complications and removal techniques associated with tattoos, body piercings, and dermatography is presented in this book. . The audience is dermatologists who perform laser for tattoo removal. . I have read only journal articles on this topic, and this book summarizes the current state of knowledge on removal of tattoos and treatment of the various types of infections and dermatitides that may arise."
