Energy on the skin has revolutionized medicine: in the last 25 years  laser and IPL devices have made completely new medical treatment  concepts possible, with considerable therapeutic success. The rapid  technical advances in energy-based instruments require continuous  training for attending physicians. This book presents all the available  energy-based systems for the treatment of cutaneous diseases, including a  wide range of laser applications, IPL and energy-based devices such as  the lightning lamp-pumped pulsed dye laser, solid state lasers like  neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd YAG) laser, quality switched  ruby laser, erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet laser (YAG) and CO2  laser, as well as radio frequency and high-intensity focused ultra  sound, photodynamic therapy and more. The translation was done with the  help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service and a subsequent human revision by original chapter authors,  editor and publisher was perfomed to fine-tune and update the content.  After discussing the history of the laser, the first part of the book  focuses on laser therapy in dermatology and aesthetic medicine,  including side effects, complications and treatment errors. It also  examines the qualitative standards and legal aspects, from therapists’  qualifications to patient education and the maintenance of the  equipment. In addition, it addresses safe and effective energy  applications for hemangiomas, skin cancer precursors and rosacea. The  book also features chapters on patient preparation, medical history and  photographic follow up, as well as skin analysis, cooling techniques,  light protection and the maintenance of laser devices. Further, it  discusses cosmetic topics such as tattoo removal, photo hair removal,  scars and stretch marks, hair transplant, body contouring,  hyperhidrosis, and aesthetic plasma medicine. Written by leading  international exerts, each contribution includes suggestions for further  reading, making the book a valuable resource for beginners and experts  alike. At the same time, its easy-to-follow, didactic style means that  it is also suitable for university courses and seminars.
