Outcomes & Objectives
Skin care requires an all-round approach, which does not focus merely on the condition of the cutaneous tissue itself and the possible treatment methodologies to be used, but to encompass all facts of each patient as an individual from a preoperative standpoint. With the ever-increasing range of lasers and light systems at the dermatologist’s disposal for clinical treatments, a total concept approach based on a correct knowledge becomes crucial to ensure high patient satisfaction concomitant with good results.
The choice of the most appropriate regime must be based on a combination of theenergy dosage and wavelength of the light systems available, as it is now clear from experience that no single modality can induce the complex range of indications. Selection and proper management of the device of choice is necessary for the successful outcome of, for example, chronologically photo-aged skin and the various cutaneous and vascular lesions, which frequently appear with age or in young individuals.
This situation generates a necessity for active involvement of dermatologists to train in order to keep themselves in good all-round knowledge, which will help maintain their current professional standards in the use and advantages of lasers in their speciality.
