Course Description

With over 1,000 skin conditions and many cosmetic therapies, dermatology is a multi-billion-dollar industry that is projected to grow substantially in the next years. Serving as the interface between the body and the outside world, the skin not only performs vital protective and communicatory functions, but also plays a significant role in an individual’s cosmetic appeal. Considerable advancements in skin physiology knowledge, new research, and innovations in technology have led to many developments in dermatological treatments and greater insights on the individual variation and uniqueness of this organ. Personalized dermatological solutions are warranted and in high demand. In this 2-day live event, explore personalized treatments for common dermatological conditions and opportunities in cosmetic care with focus on non-surgical topical therapy.
