Volume 11 - Issue 7 - July 2003

E ach year, in our annual laser surgery issue, we highlight some of the newest treatments and techniques dermatologists are using with lasers and light-based modalities. In this year’s issue, as you’ll read over the next several pages, lasers have become an integral part of many dermatologists’ practices. New treatments using new and old technology for a variety of conditions — from acne to port wine stains — are available, and experts share their insights on the best choices. It’s very interesting to hear how far laser technology has come — and in such a short timespan. Kenneth A. Arndt,
