Lasers in Dermatological Practice

by Kabir Sardana, Vijay K Garg

The genesis of this book arose from the common mechanistic approach where we learn which buttons to push, in courses provided by the more reputable device manufacturers just after a laser is purchased. This approach is foolish beyond words, and can harm patients, and worse create medicolegal hazards. This book gives a practical approach to using lasers with advanced techniques within the same book. The book answers the three basic questions, what to do, why to do it and how to do it? The basic target is the dermatologists who need a step-by-step approach to the technology commonly used and not the laser that a speaker in most conferences uses, which as a thumb rule is expensive, the reason why the company sponsors the talk in the first place. The book is planned in a way where the commonly performed procedures are discussed which gradually move on the advanced techniques. Practical aspects like medicolegal hazards and pearls are discussed in the latter half of the book. Some very useful information is provided in the appendix.
