Erin Gilbert, MD, PhD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Distinguish between the proposed mechanisms of action of botulinum type A neurotoxin in the context of inflammatory skin disease.
- Apply this knowledge clinically in treating common inflammatory dermatoses.
This session is directed towards physicians interested in learning more about the immunomodulatory effects of botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT-A) and how these can be applied to cutaneous disorders. The discussion will include specific mechanisms of action of BoNT-A in neurogenic inflammation and introduce treatment protocols for acne, rosacea and psoriasis.
