About this book


Chemical peeling is a well known method attempting to restore a more youthful appearance and improving dermatologic defects. Over the last years this technique has been marked by constant innovation. This book is the first atlas on chemical peels, representing the state of the art in this field. It is a fully illustrated text, becoming an ideal reference tool for dermatologists dealing with cosmetology. It is a practical and simple guide: in the first part the peeling techniques are displayed in a step-by-step manner with an exhaustive text supporting the illustrations; in the second part different diseases are discussed in their pathogenesis and treatment options. Each Author then provides his/her personal experience and treatment approach with different peeling techniques in acne, rosacea, melasma, photoaging, postinflammatory hyperpigmentations and dark skin.
