1 - 2 weeks availability


The visible scarring left permanently on the skin after acne itself subsides often causes considerable distress for the patients concerned. The traditional treatment by dermabrasion has now been supplemented and supplanted by a number of innovative therapies, often developed as tools in cosmetic dermatology, and this text - the first monograph devoted to the topic - will be welcomed by both general and cosmetic dermatologists as a useful guide through the complexities of treatment.
