Acne, rosacea and sebaceous hyperplasia are very common skin problems that have a medical and cosmetic impact on the daily lives of millions of people. This book covers both the medical and cosmetic treatments of these skin disorders including all clinical aspects of the condition, aetiology, epidemiology, diagnostic challenges, and the latest theories on pathophysiology.
This is followed by chapters dealing with current medical therapeutics and laser treatments available for each of the conditions. In the case of acne, a separate chapter is dedicated to the treatment of acne scarring, a common and frequently psychologically-marring consequence of this common disease.
This book is invaluable to dermatologists in practice and training, to plastic surgeons, general physicians and to all healthcare personnel working in the administration of phototherapy and laser treatment for acne and rosacea.
