Personalized Dermatology: Cosmetic Care

Las Vegas, NV US
October 1, 2020


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 cosmetic dermatology and greater insights on the individual variations and uniqueness of this organ. In addition to naturally occurring between-person variations describing differences in skin structure, function, composition depending on genetic makeup, environmental exposure, age, ethnicity, and sex, the skin is particularly characterized by unique allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances. Personalized dermatological solutions are warranted and in high demand.


Targeted to pharmacists, general practitioners, dermatologists and other healthcare providers looking to expand their repertoire in cosmetic dermatology, this 1-day seminar explores personalized opportunities in cosmetic topical dermatological care. After sizing up the dermatology market, assessing dermatological needs and opportunities, and reviewing fundamental principles of integumentary physiology that is vital for tailoring and targeting therapy, this program dives into cosmetic solutions for:

  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Erythema
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Wrinkles
  • Hair Loss and Thinning

For each segment, participants will evaluate the epidemiology, physiology, manifestation, and therapeutic options for the targeted dermatological concern. Special consideration will be made for personalized pharmaceutical or cosmeceutical topical therapies for optimal therapeutic outcome. Participants will be asked to critically appraise empirical evidence supporting the therapeutic benefits or disadvantages of various pharmaceutical and cosmetic ingredients. Knowledge will be applied through case assessments and formula investigation.

Intended audience

  • Pharmacists
  • Physicians (General Practitioners or Dermatologists)
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Other healthcare provides engaged in dermatology
