Summary

Recent advances in our understanding of the development and morphology of normal skin have led to improved methods to deliver therapeutic compounds to selected targeted areas both within the skin and systemically. This reference provides a clear overview of pharmaceutical and cosmetic practices, drugs, and therapies to manage and treat major and minor skin disorders.

Written for scientists interested in dermatological therapy and marketers of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, the text is also useful for students developing strong research methods. The book covers drugs used to manage a range of skin disorders and the site where the effect is sought. It examines the efficiency and delivery of topical therapies, including various pharmaceutical therapies. It also explains how percutaneous absorption is affected by age, skin, site, race, skin disease, and damage and product form. Particular emphasis is on novel treatment approaches for major skin diseases and injuries pertaining to wounds and burns.
