• This article deals with the office treatment of several common cosmetic problems. The topic of benign lesions is discussed, which includes the management of lentigines, milia, spider nevi, telangiectasias, xanthelasma, and keloids. The use of several modalities for the treatment of acne scarring is advocated; these include dermabrasion, punch-transplant replacement techniques, and collagen implants. Chemical face peels for actinic damage and premature wrinkling are described, and the use of hair transplants, scalp-reduction techniques, and scalp flaps to surgically correct male-pattern alopecia are discussed.
