Abstract

The use of lasers in dermatology had increased significantly in the past decade. The psychological estate of the patients, the concerns and possible side effects that laser therapy may cause should be carefully learned, presented and discussed previously. This chapter will present some concepts of basic psychology, advice about patients expectations, and tips for the establishment of a good doctor-patient relationship.
