Fresh, New Practical Pearls, Immediately Useful

Gaps in education and training have contributed to disparities in the dermatologic and aesthetic treatment of patients with skin of color.

Skin of Color Update is committed to changing that. The goal of our conference is twofold: first to educate dermatology clinicians and trainees to best ​diagnose and treat dermatologic disorders in populations with skin of color, including those that disproportionately affect higher skin phototypes. Second to educate clinicians and trainees to best treat the aesthetic needs of patients with skin of color.

In providing the latest updates on diagnostic, therapeutic, and cosmetic treatment best practices for dermatologic conditions in populations with skin of color, our conference equips practitioners to deliver safe, effective, and culturally competent care to a diverse patient population.

We recognize that there are nuances in the clinical presentation and optimal approach to treatment of many dermatologic conditions in skin of color and have been sharing practical pearls and the latest advances from the leading experts in the field for over a decade. Our program covers the broad range of inflammatory, pigmentary, and hair disorders that are prevalent in patients with skin of color, as well as safe approaches to aesthetic procedures in patients with darker skin pigmentation.
