Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

- Discuss protocols, benefits as well as risks of key topical agents, and surgical protocols including chemical peels, lasers, skin tightening procedures and tissue augmentation.
- Provide an overview of managing complications from cosmetic procedures in darker racial ethnic groups.
By the year 2050, 50% of the US population will comprise individuals who are skin types IV-VI. Cosmetic procedures are growing rapidly in this group. Because of the unique morphologic, physiologic and aging differences in such individuals, the treating physician should be cognizant of these issues in choosing appropriate topical regimens and surgical protocols.
