The definitive guide to adapting cosmetic procedures to skin of color
A Doody's Core Title for 2011
This book is informative about treating patients with darker skin and I would recommend it to any dermatologist who sees these patients. The authors' presentations are unbiased and their conclusions are clear. I know I will reread many of the chapters when I see patients with skin types 4-6. 3 Stars.--Doody's Review Service
