This session will focus not on cosmetic surgery but on cosmetic dermatology. You will learn about botulinum toxin, injectable fillers, chemical peeling, and topical agents/oral supplements for anti-aging. The faculty will discuss treatment selection, reviewing the profiles of these agents and how to determine which patients should receive them. Information on age-appropriate treatments as well as oral supplementation for cosmetic reasons will help you field questions from the patients you see in your practice. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 9th, 2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.
There have been many advances in the medical management of dermatologic disease. Office Dermatology will cover the diagnosis and management of common skin disorders and provide an update on therapeutics.
Can't Miss Dermatology Diagnoses: Cutaneous Manifestations of Systemic Disease (Recorded at Pri-Med East)
Skin disease can be the first presenting sign of serious health problems. Early recognition and workup can often influence global patient outcomes. Using a case-based presentation, the cutaneous associations of important conditions will be reviewed. Attendees will learn to generate a differential for specific skin findings and increase their comfort in evaluating rashes. We will also review current diagnostic and treatment modalities.
In recent years, many advances have occurred in the medical management of dermatologic disease. What's Poppin? will delve into the diagnosis and management of skin disorders seen commonly in primary care and will discuss updated therapeutic options.
This session will cover the recognition of common dermatological diagnoses, presented as a series of dyads, from which you will be asked to pick out a diagnosis. Reasons for why the photo depicts one diagnosis rather than the other will be described. The session will conclude with a rapid-fire viewing of multiple different photos of each diagnosis covered to solidify your visual recognition of rashes in different nuanced contexts.
