    Summary: This book addresses the management of scars using lasers and light. The authors provide a comprehensive overview of the current laser modalities and the science and evidence behind them. They also present various treatments, including those using carbon dioxide lasers, Erbium:YAG lasers, pulsed dye lasers and Q-switched lasers. The book includes detailed information on the treatment of burn, acne, keloid and hypertrophic scars, as well as discussions of the complications of laser treatments and ethical and medico-legal issues. Scars have many causes, including trauma and burns, but also medical treatments themselves - scars are an inevitable consequence of most surgery. There have been significant advances in laser and light technology over the last decade, and the management of scars with a variety of lasers has been adopted both in traditional healthcare settings and in the cosmetic sector. Edited by a respected burns and plastic surgeon, this book is a valuable resource for a variety of clinicians including dermatologists, laser practitioners, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, burn care professionals, as well as multidisciplinary teams working with patients with scars of all aetiologies.
