Interesting cases from a tertiary laser practice
Author: Vishal Madan MBBS (Hons), MD, FRCP
Laser skin treatments are offered by dermatologists and non-dermatologists alike. Whilst most commonly presenting indications (e.g. hair reduction) require few clinical diagnostic skills, often times one will encounter conditions that will prove challenging to diagnose and treat. The speaker will discuss interesting and challenging cases which presented in his tertiary laser assessment clinics.
Knowledge of general dermatology and keeping an ‘open mind’ are important when offering laser treatments to patients. These cases should help to illustrate that appropriate training and diagnostic skills are prerequisite when running a ‘skin laser’ clinic.
