Skin Bioscience: A Molecular Approach

Skin bioscience is a core part of dermatology and brings important guiding principles to skin care and dermatological therapy. Although the investigation of human skin bioscience is not necessarily easy because of the limitations on the use of native human skin, many academic scientists and industrial engineers have been involved in this labored research with their creative ingenuity.

In Skin Bioscience: A Molecular Approach, skin bioscience is introduced with a specific focus on the molecular approach. Following the description of the fundamental structure and unique functionality of the skin, the response of the skin to exterior stimulation is described. Furthermore, attention is paid to the beautification and regeneration of the skin. This book provides readers with the molecular knowledge of the skin and stimulates their interest in further investigation and development of skin bioscience.

Angiogenesis-Based Dermatology

This book provides a complete overview of all aspects of angiogenesis in dermatology.  This is a guide to the principles of angiogenesis that will allow all involved in dermatology from the medical student and nurse practitioner to the experienced dermatologist to apply these principles for the treatment of patients.

 Angiogenesis is a principle that can be used to guide treatment of diseases of any organ system. Dermatology may be the first specialty to be guided by the principle of angiogenesis because the lesions are visible and response can be easily monitored. Dermatologists already inhibit angiogenesis as part of their treatment of multiple common dermatologic disorders, including acne, warts, and nonmelanoma skin cancer.
