From reviews of the First Edition:
"This book fills the void between new technology and practical application for many practitioners of cosmetic laser surgery. Each chapter is well–written, with many excellent clinical photographs. The material presented obviously represents substantial clinical experience. Clinical discussions are pertinent, concise, and practical and will be very useful both for the new practitioner of cosmetic surgery and, as a reference, for the experienced practitioner."–The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery.
"The book is oriented towards the practicing physician, with emphasis on indications and procedural details. Any dermatologist interested in starting an aesthetic laser surgery practice will find this book a worthwhile investment."–Archives of Dermatology.
