Facial Skin Resurfacing

Arch Dermatol. 1998;134(7):887. doi:

Put simply, Facial Skin Resurfacing is a very good book. The authors state:

Our writing is based on our personal experience, which has yielded consistent results with a high level of patient satisfaction. These approaches have worked best for us, and we hope that others will benefit from our learning curve.

Fortunately for the reader, the authors deliver on this objective throughout the text, which includes an enlightening discussion of Baker's personal experience. Facial Skin Resurfacing is centered on the fundamental principle that photoaging-induced injury can be divided into 3 types: superficial, medium, and deep. It is an excellent and valuable classification system for skin rejuvenation. By highlighting these different levels of damage to photoaged skin and the depth of injury associated with each resurfacing technique, the authors lay the foundation for choosing proper resurfacing modalities.
