The use of laser light to treat dermatological conditions is becoming increasingly common as laser technology has become more effective in its ability to target specific dermatological areas. This book is a practical guide to the use of laser light to treat skin disorders. Beginning with an overview of the fundamentals of lasers, the following sections examine different procedures including laser hair removal, tattoo removal, acne scars, vascular lesions, non-invasive fat removal and tissue tightening. Each chapter provides an introduction to the topic, discussion on new techniques and clinical pearls. Written by an extensive author and editor team from throughout the USA, this book is highly useful for both trainees and practising dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons.

William Risk, Timothy Gosnell and Arto Nurmikko have brought together their diverse expertise from industry and academia to write the first fully comprehensive book on the generation and application of blue-green lasers. This volume describes the theory and practical implementation of three techniques for the generation of blue-green light: nonlinear frequency conversion of infrared lasers, upconversion lasers, and wide bandgap semiconductor diode lasers. In addition, it looks at the various applications that have driven the development of compact sources of blue-green light, and reflects on the recent application of these lasers in high-density data storage, color displays, reprographics, and biomedical technology. Compact Blue-Green Lasers is suitable for graduate-level courses or as a reference for academics and professionals in optics, applied physics, and electrical engineering.
Given current trends toward obesity, sedentary lifestyles, and poor diets, hypertension is increasingly becoming a disease of the young as well as the elderly, affecting about 1 billion people worldwide. Many patients, especially the younger ones, would prefer alternative treatments. While natural remedies have been used for much longer than pharmaceutical-based treatments, few Western physicians are trained in alternative treatments of hypertension. Written by a dual board-certified nephrologist and internist as well as a Harvard-trained doctor of chemistry, Integrative Treatment of Hypertension: A Clinical and Mechanistic Approach offers an alternative approach to treating hypertension, providing sound mechanisms of action and practical implementation advice.
