Common Treatments in Preventive Dermatology: How to Treat Your Patient is the key clinical primer dedicated to prevention of skin disease. It seems almost counter-intuitive to take on this task, because so much of what we do in dermatology is based on repair and restructuring of skin maladies. However, the shortage of dermatology providers and the shift to cosmetics and procedures mean that it is essential to give patients choice when deciding the best options for themselves and their therapy and to maximize their experience of receiving the best quality healthcare. Much can be done to prevent the disfiguring effects brought on by the abuse of sun, nicotine and alcohol, excess weight, mobility and exercise difficulties, dysfunctional nutrition, improper hygiene, lack of immunizations, inadequate cosmetic repair, and many other problems. Preventive dermatology focuses on ways we can minimize skin problems. We have highly effective sunscreens, a plethora of various information about skin care on the internet, and more prevention and treatment modalities than ever before. However, even the most informed patients need guidance, making this book essential for all practicing dermatologists.
