About this book

Chemical peeling is a well-known method used to restore a more youthful appearance and improve dermatologic defects. This book is the first atlas on chemical peels and has been significantly revised and updated since the first edition so as to reflect the state of the art in the field. The various types of chemical peel and peeling techniques are discussed in a step-by-step manner with the aid of supporting illustrations. Pathogenesis and treatment options are then considered, with each author reporting on his or her personal experience and preferred approach for different diseases and conditions. A new section addresses how to deal with side-effects and complications of the different procedures. This atlas will serve as an ideal reference tool for dermatologists who deal with cosmetology. In particular, by providing clear information on the different peeling procedures and their indications, it will prove invaluable for dermatologists and other doctors who wish to start performing chemical peels.
