Summary The concept of selective photothermolysis revolutionized cutaneous therapy and continues to be the basis of low-risk laser treatment of photoaged skin, benign pigmented lesions and tattoos, unwanted hair, and cutaneous vascular lesions. However, all practitioners are aware that problems can arise, and with the increasing availability of more powerful lasers and light sources, more complications are inevitably going to be seen Complications in Laser Cutaneous Surgery provides, chapter by chapter, several key points followed by discussion of the lasers used to treat the various entities described, how to pre-empt problems and how to deal with them if they occur
