Laser Dermatology: Pearls and Problems is different from other laser dermatology books. Each of the five chapters begins by highlighting key points and essential concepts, then focuses on the pearls and problems for each area – based on the author’s vast experience in the field of laser dermatology. Dr. Goldberg addresses:

  • Vascular Lasers
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Pigmented Lesions, Tattoos, and Disorders of Hypopigmentation
  • Ablative Lasers and Devices
  • Non-Ablative Photorejuvenation and Skin Remodeling

Dr. Goldberg goes beyond the standard “before and after” approach to use actual images to demonstrate the pearls and pitfalls discussed in the text.
