About this Textbook

This book comprehensively reviews the characteristics of the body reflected in the skin due to differences in gender. It investigates the genetic and hormonal differences that can affect skin structure and function, and resulting in variations between women and men. The aging process and exogenous factors that differ according to differences in lifestyle between the sexes are also covered. 

Gender and Dermatology comprehensively outlines the various aspects of physiological differences between the skin of women and men using practical examples and review of the basic science. It is therefore an important clinically-relevant review for both the trainee and experienced practitioner in dermatology, primary care, geriatrics and immunology, while also being of interest to researchers in genetics and metabolic medicine.

Reviews

“This book is easy to read and covers a wide subject in a thoughtful way. … I would recommend this book for any clinicians seeking to think outside of the standard dermatological texts and address skin issues that increasingly affect patients in our changing world.” (Dr Paul Charlson, MIMS Dermatology, Vol. 14 (2), September, 2018)
