About this book

Chronological aging takes a toll on all and is especially visible on the most recognizable features of our facial skin. As the population ages it is demanding more help, including prevention of skin problems.

We live in a world between expectation and reality, and the goal for dermatologists is to help ourselves and our patients anticipate problems and provide solutions. Preventative Dermatology is the first book fully dedicated to prevention of skin disease. It seems almost counter-intuitive to take on this task, because so much of what we do in dermatology is based on repair and restructuring of skin maladies. However, the shortage of dermatology providers and the shift to cosmetics and procedures mean that it is essential to give patients choice when deciding the best options for themselves and their therapy and to maximize their experience of receiving the best quality healthcare.

Much can be done to prevent the disfiguring effects brought on by the abuse of sun, nicotine and alcohol, excess weight, mobility and exercise difficulties, dysfunctional nutrition, improper hygiene, lack of immunizations, inadequate cosmetic repair, and many other problems. Preventive dermatology focuses on ways we can minimize skin problems. We have highly effective sunscreens, a plethora of various information about skin care on the internet, and more prevention and treatment modalities than ever before. However, even the most informed patients need guidance, making this book essential for all practicing dermatologists.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The chapters are concise, interesting, and focused toward the prevention of mucocutaneous dermatoses. The book is a welcome addition to the dermatology literature and … can easily be read from cover to cover within 3–4 weeks. The novice reader will find the information instructive and comprehensive whereas the experienced practitioner will be able to find a few clinical gems to incorporate into their management of patients. Seriously consider adding this book to your personal library.” (Philip R. Cohen, International Journal of Dermatology, Vol. 53 (1), January, 2014)

“The purpose is to educate dermatologists on how patients can be more proactive in taking care of their skin, especially if they have a genetic tendency for a particular disorder. … The book presents a number of practical tips to avoid the development of problems such as skin infection, nail and foot fungus, and fetal eczema precautions for the pregnant mother. … This book presents a general treatment overview of common skin disorders and suggests precautions to take to decrease complications and exacerbations.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Review Service, December, 2010)
