Phototherapy is an effective application when treating skin conditions. This material discusses the photobiological process of cells, and covers the physics of LED, laser, intense pulsed light, and biophysics of photodynamic therapy, and gives the practitioner a thorough understanding of each modality. Clinical applications to treat skin diseases are covered such as acne, scarring, and rosacea, as well as hyperpigmented disorders such as melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, sun damage, pre-cancerous lesions, and cutaneous carcinomas. The material is thorough and discusses phototherapy applications when treating ethnic skin concerns. The material offers learning material for all levels of practice, and offers an advanced study into the medical field.
