About this book

Nanotechnology in Dermatology is the first book of its kind to address all of the important and rapidly growing aspects of nanotechnology as it relates to dermatology. In the last few years there has been an explosion in research and development for products and devices related to nanotechnology, including numerous applications for consumers, physicians, patients, and industry.  Applications are underway in medicine and dermatology for the early detection, diagnosis, and targeted therapy of disease, and nanodesigned materials and devices are expected to be faster, smaller, more powerful, more efficient, and more versatile than their traditional counterparts. 

 

Written by experts working in this exciting field, Nanotechnology in Dermatology specifically addresses nanotechnology in consumer skin care products, in the diagnosis of skin disease, in the treatment of skin disease, and the overall safety of nanotechnology. The book also discusses future trends of this ever-growing and changing field, providing dermatologists, pharmaceutical companies, and consumer cosmetics companies with a clear understanding of the advantages and challenges of nanotechnology today.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Nanotechnology in Dermatology is the first book ever published dealing with the emerging trends in the application of nanotechnology to the scientific study of skin, and the clinical translation of this knowledge to diagnose and treat skin disease. … A clear plus of this book is the shear diversity of topics covered that will appeal to and inform all stakeholders, including academic scientists and students, industrial research and development personnel, clinicians, regulatory agents and, most of all, the public.” (Lisa A. De Louise, Nanomedicine, futuremedicine.com, Vol. 8 (7), July, 2013)
